Your site is great! Saved me a service call for a repairman to come out and tell me what was wrong, order parts and then come back. Total repair was less than $90 including parts and shipping. It arrived in two days from when I ordered it. I ordered the replacement door gasket, the gasket insert and a new checkvalve. This was a super easy fix and I am a girl too boot! I am proud of myself!I used a phillips screwdriver to take off about 8 screws off the white inner door fascia in order to replace the door seal. Keep this panel upright and do not lay it down since the rinse agent will leak out all over! Found out that the hard way. Removed the old, dried out, outer door gasket, centered the notch that was on the new gasket at the top of the door and installed it all the way around in the door gasket groove. Installed the gasket insert at the bottom where the door gasket comes together on the bottom of the door. After that was completed I used a 1/4" nutdriver to remove the 4 hex screws at the back of the dishwasher for the cover that is over the check valve. It is white and has a very fine mesh screen.. so easy to identify. The old check valve was filled with crud and and the rubber was deteriorated. I just backed the old one out counterclockwise and put in the new one, a little better than finger tight. Replaced the cover and the hex screws with the 1/4" nutdriver. Reinstalled the white inner door panel, insure the door handle comes through the hole in the front prior to attaching your screws back in place. Closed the dishwasher. Ran it on rinse/hold cycle to make sure no leaks before going for a full wash. Works great and drains now too. Your site is a lifesaver! Thanks!!!

The check valve in the piston and nut assembly was worn away not stopping the water from reentering the basin area. Replaced it and all was good there. Replaced the door gasket and all was good there now too.
The repair was quick and easy. Disassembly was no problem and the parts were easily installed. The only problem was that the gasket does not go all the way around the door. A 4" insert is also required. I had to order that part separately, and wait for it, after I installed the gasket.
I examined the door gasket and found it to be worn. So I ordered the new parts and installed. The replacement went easily. There were other persons comments which said center handle on re-installing door inner which was very helpful. After replacing parts I did a test run and no leak...thinjking the problem was solved I went downstairs to double check and saw water dripping. I removed the botton facet of the dishwasher and checked underneath and found a small hose leaking. I ordered and replaced trying to do without removing the dishwasher ..well don't try to cut corners remove it as replacing without doing so is a pain and wasted time so I learned a lot from this experience. I found the comments of others fixes VERY helpful.
First I must say that several appliance service companies told me it would be cheaper to buy new versus repair. Average quote was for $100 as a service call to check it out. I removed the front door coverge and determined it was the controller. Cheched with an Ohmeter ($9.00 unit) for shorts and found none. The new controller was installed together with the other parts and I now have a unit like new that would have cost $1,400.00 to replace. The schematics and parts diagram were invaluable. You also saved about $50.00 over the GE website. Thanks.
The parts I replaced did not fix the problem (lft & rgt baffles, gasket insert). They were very easy to replace but still had a leak. Next step will be to replace the door gasket that goes around the perimeter of the door.
I removed the old gaskets, cleaned a little bit of scale away and installed the new gaskets. A piece of cake.
Very, very easy to insert part.
