I ordered the parts from parts select and was pleasantly suprised at the diagnostic diagrams, the home install video, and the quality and pricing of the parts. I had ordered just the top bearing a few years ago and did not realized the bottom seal was bad also. I found the seal pushed down around the pump housing which caused excessive ware on the pump housing top and the top of the wash arm because the gap in the lower seal expanded over 1/4 inch causing the wear on the top of the wash are. This job is normally very easy. Unscrew the thumb screw on top, remove old bearing, pull off the wash arm, remove old seal. Then just put new seal on top of pump (check for any burrs and remove with a fine grit emory sand paper) put on the wash arm, insert top bearing and tighten finger nut tight. I had excessive wear (due to age of unit and lower seal not in proper position), so I had to construct a spacer to take up some of the slack. I could not find a nylon washer(and you need nylon) in the stores ready made and did not want rubber or metal washers due to the adverse effects these would have on the new bearing. I improvised. I purchased a pack of 10 nylon wall anchor washers from Menards (after they said no nylon washers were available:) I used 2 inch O.D. washers with 1/4 inch I.D. which was a perfect center hole and used a drill to enlarge center from 1/4 inch to 1 inch I.D. (to fit around the finger nut screw stem), and removed all burrs. Unscrewed top finger nut and placed under nut on top of seal and the 1/8 inch width took up the slack. Problem solved.

I unscrewed the remaining part of the retainer nut with my finger and then I removed the old sprayarm seal and replaced it with a new one. Next I removed the wash arm bearing ring and replaced it with a new one. Then finally I screwed in the wash arm retained nut with my fingers. I did all this within 5 mins. I saved alot of money doing it myself. My dishwasher is working great. I love kitched aid dishwashers. I have another one in my 2nd home.
most everything snapped easly into place only one screw to deal with. very easy repair.
Unscrewed wing nut by hand and remover wash arm. Seals slipped in with out force.
I removed the end clips so I could slide out the upper rack........I recommend doing this carefully inorder to reuse the clips. All the repairs were easy..........at first I thought the lower arm was not tightened enough, but a simple search told me that it is supposed to "wobble".Thank you for making it so easy to find the right parts. You do an excellent job of organizing parts by model #.
unscrewed upper wing nut with fingers replaced the washer arm bearing ring and lower spray arm seal- (a little confused where to place the washer bearing ring since old ring was broken and had slipped down into washer arm.Your schematic showed clearly how to do it. Cost of repair was about $30. I think my local repair shop ( a reputable company ) would have been in the $200 or more range.. Thanks. The letters from other customers were a big help.
At first, I suspected the door seal was at fault. However, after reading others' repair experiences, I found the dishwasher may leak if the wash arm bearings are worn. So, I took a look at those, and indeed they were quite worn.After receiving the parts in the mail, I called my 7 and 9 year old kids over. They were excited to open the package, and weren't too disappointed when they found it was dishwasher parts. I told them it was up to them to fix the dishwasher. As I sat on a stool, I instructed them what to do. They did a great job and now it doesn't leak any more.
The wash arm parts were the most functionally important. These just snap into place. I was amused to see that the lower spray arm seal no longer even resembled the shape of the original part. My seal had worn to the shape of a thin fingering. The dish rack clips were a little more challenging. Snapping off the old ones was straightforward but figuring out the proper orientation of the new clips required a little thought. However, I like puzzles.
Simply looked at the exploded parts diagram and put it back together 1-2-3. No problem!
