Dishwasher rehab

After hearing ominous grinding sounds and water leaking around the gasket, it was about time to rehab the dishwasher. This is usually the point where I say "t'hell with it, buy a new one". I am glad I didn't.
The Kit to rehab the impeller and such had EVERYTHING I needed. Right parts, right price.
Removed the upper arm assembly, T15 screwdriver, the screen strainer, the impeller, T25 screwdriver, the food grinding spring and impeller (the grinding noise, spring was sprung), and finally the post and impeller thingie (had to break it off, very brittle). The pieces went back on a lot more smoothly than it took to get them off!
Use your digital camera! I took pictures of every stage of the parts removal and what I removed. I got confused with some little balls that were inside and the pictures told me exactly where they went.
Door gasket? I should have replaced it YEARS ago, so easy and cheap with PartSelect parts.

Flopping wash arm due to broken retainer nut spelt disaster three days before thanksgiving.

Once I removed the wash arm from its base and figured out what had happened I ordered the repairs I needed from PartsSelect.com. It was extremely easy to see what was needed.
I had to have them sent overnight, because it was three days before Thanksgiving and the arrival of 7 extra people on Wednesday evening.
The package arrived Tuesday afternoon, I opened it, removed the old spray arm bearing ring, put the new one in place, placed the wash arm bearing ring on the bottom of the wash arm, set it in place, and tightened all of it in place with the new wash arm retainer nut. Started the dishwasher and I was in business!! It took longer to open the package and unpackage everything than it did to make the repair AND no chapped and cracked hands doing Thanksgiving & weekend dishes.

Poor washing - water not coming out of jets at full power

Bottom wash arm bearing and seal were severely worn and leaking. Replaced in about one minute with new parts from PartSelect.com, and took the opportunity to clean out the arm -- stringy, fibrous matter was clogging two jets.

Top arm horizontal rubber supply tube was disintegrating and leaked. Replace with Spray Arm Kit -- this took maybe two minutes!

Lastly, two to of the upper right-rear folding rack tine clips were broken -- replacement was difficult as the old, broken clips were very stiff and came off only after much physical persuasion! New clips were installed easitly -- in a "snap". Time ~ 5 minutes.

Best of all, the new parts were delivered to my home within 36 hours of my internet order. I thought the prices were fair, too. Thanks.

Water leaking out side where water enters

AIR INLET GASKET Had to pull dishwaher out, using instructions sent with part, turn it 1/4 turn counter clockwise, tap with screwdriver and hammer and it came right off. Put the new one on. It was kinda hard to get it to turn the last little bit, I had to use a screw driver and hammer to make it twist that last little bit.
