This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
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.
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.
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.
