The mount for the pump was damaged in shipping. We remodeled our kitchen so we ordered the appliances befor we were ready to install them. They looked ok when got them but when we opened them the dishwasher was damaged. I tried to fix the problem but I couldn't get the vibration out.

First thing I did was to turn off the water and electrial supply. Then take the side mount screws and remove the base cover disconect the water line slide out the washer. I then put a pad on the floor turn the washer face down on the pad. I disconected the drain line lossened the clamp on the pump. Then disconected the two wires and removed the pump.I then installed the new pump tightened the clamps reconected the two wires then conected the drain line. I then slide the washer back in place reconected the water line put the side mount screws in place. I then turned the water and electrial supplies back on. I then ran the washer to check for leaks. No leaks found iI then reinstalled the base plate. The vibration was gone after replaceing the pump. Thanks Charlie

The first posted instruction is dead on (except there are 14 phillips screws (not 10) on inside of door. Also, when reconnecting the 2" quick connect, make sure it is fully inserted - otherwise the numbers on the display panel will not show correctly. Mine didn't the first time, and I had to re-open the door panel and giggle around with the connection to get the numbers to display properly.

1. Removed the cap ends from the inner rails - easy

2. Removed the old rusted rack from the inner rails- easy

3. Removed the spray arm and conduit - a bit difficult: there's a hard-to-reach nut that you need to remove at the hub of the spray arm - A pain in the neck because it cannot be reached vertically.

4. Installed the spray arm and conduit onto new rack. Make sure the conduit aligns with the pipe at the rear inner wall! - easy

5. Installed the rack onto the rails - easy

6. inserted the cap ends - done!

The Lower Rack was a simple swap. The Upper Rack had a tube and rotating sprayer that had to be removed and installed on the new rack. I used a nutdriver to remove a few screws and reinstall them on the new unit. Very simple.

Open dishwasher and remove the bottom spray wheel, filter, and unscrew the mounting bracket to release the pump connector below the bottom of the unit. Remove mounting screws at top front of dishwasher and carefully slide the unit out; you may have to pry side panels inward with a flat screwdriver in order to get the dishwasher past any cabinetry. Be careful not to pull the dishwasher too far out as the water supply and drain hoses could be damaged. Unplug the unit. Turn unit sideways and tip over onto its' back. At this point, the sump will have to be removed using a nut-driver and/or socket set. This will open access to remove the old pump connector. Replace the old connector with the new connector, and reassemble the sump, connecting and firmly tightening all connectors. Tip unit upright. Screw mounting bracket back into the bottom of the dishwasher and put the remaining parts back. Before pushing the unit back into it's nook, I advise running a quick cycle just to make sure there is no leakage. If there is no leakage, put the unit back, tighten the mounting screws and you're done.

After finding the leak source I have targeted the piece part on your web. It came 2 days after and I replaced the defective part by the new one. I switch off the water, untied the nut to release the pipe, take out the part.

The plastic wheels kept falling off the bottom rack of the dishwasher

The old wheels and attachment brackets were easily removed since they were always falling off. I ordered all new brackets and wheels, but it turns out I didn't need new wheels. If your original wheels are in good condition, they are the same size as the new ones and fit the new brackets. The new attachment brackets are built differently than the ones that came with the dishwasher, but (a good thing considering the originals only lasted 1 1/2 years). The new brackets and wheels snapped together and snapped into place on the dishwasher in minutes--no tools were needed. It took longer to cut the parts out of the packaging than to install them. The bottom rack now rolls out like it did when it was brand new. Definitely worth the few dollars in parts.
