broken handle

Watched your video and tried to do this myself. Followed your directions exactly. Unscrewed the panel off, unscrewed inside bolts and pulled wires out of the handle. Replaced wires, screws and handle, closed panel screwed in panel and was done. My only problem was I did not have the type of screw driver for the inside screws. I don't know what they were called but looked like a star. Ran to hardware store bought a driver for $6 (returned it later) and was done! My husband was in disbelieve!

Lower rack was simple R&R. It was about 1" lower height than original but I suppose it fits multiple apps. Upper rack removed from slide rails with clips removed with fingernails. The funnel & spray arm came off by hand but the old rack had rusted under the snap-on clips on the funnel mount base causing stretching & a loose fit on new rack. I drilled a 1/8" hole in the base & used a small plastic zip-tie to secure the base to the rack. Problem solved. No other tools needed besides the drill & it took longer to go to garage to use it than all else combined. Still about a 10 minute task. Under 1 beer in red-neck repair time.

Inlet valve wasn't letting water in

Turned off water and power! Couldn't move dishwasher out, so access was a little problem. Worked to disconnect inlet hose. Finally unscrewed the whole unit, disconnected the outlet hose and the power connection and then unscrewed the unit from the inlet hose. Removed the ell from old unit, applied Teflon tape, and screwed it into new unit. (Tighten it really well. I didn't and had to take things apart again!) Installed new unit starting with the inlet tube, then the outlet tube then the frame screws. Turned water and power back on and tested the dishwasher. SUCCESS! My wife thinks I'm a hero.

I'm a girl and it was pretty simple. I pulled out the dishwasher, removed the bottom plate cover. Removed the water line to the inlet valve and made sure the water was getting to the valve (it was). Removed the electical connector from the valve. Removed the valve and installed the new one. Made sure the water was pumping into the dishwaser. Pushed the dishwasher back into place. Runs great.

The best advice I can give is to watch the repair videos; they are very well done and demonstrate exactly what to do. I played them a couple of times (particularly for the upper rack) and the replacement was exactly as described...very easy. The "close up" shots were very helpful.

Watched the video instructions; was really easy. Encountered one problem; removal of the washer blade attachment. The problem was mine; lacked the strength in my finger to pry the attached device away from the rack. Used a spoon to assist; once off; easy installation.

machine was not filling

First, I unplugged the dishwasher. After removing the under counter mounting screws, I pulled the dishwasher out from the cabinets. Because the switch is hard to reach, I put the dishwasher on its side (very carefully). Make sure to drain the dishwasher first, or it will leak all over your kitchen. To remove the switch, I unscrewed the single black screw in the middle of the switch and unplugged the electrical wires. I put the new switch in its place, screwed in the screw, and plugged in the electrical connection. I set the dishwasher upright, and ran it through a cycle before reinstalling it into the cabinet. I had previously tried replacing the water inlet valve, but that was not the problem.

The dishwasher leaked water at the bottom of the door.

The door gasket, part 154576501 did the trick. Your website was very helpful; it listed the percentage of times that the part resolved the problem. Very useful when you are guessing what the cause may be. It took me a little while to figure out how to put it in. It didn't seem like it set in place, but upon closer inspection I noticed a track to house the gasket. You don't have to take the door off, but doing so helped me to make sure the gasket was properly installed.

Opened door fully, removed the tray. I was unable to remove the bottom gasket, or even see it at first. Many years of use actually made the gasket stick pretty firmly to where it was. Used my needle nose to pinch it and it came out very easy when I pulled. Cleaned the area ( and it needed it!) slid the new gasket in place without a problem. The Tub gasket came out without a hitch. Measured it to the new one and cut to length. Stuffed it in the crack and did some dishes. Small leak still in same spot. It's kinda of a funky fit in the corner so was a little more careful stuffing it in and it worked fine after that. Thanks...cheap, quick fix.
