Leaked after filling when first starting up

replaced door seal,lower door seal and wash arm bearing ring-now it leaked when it was running.put old door seal back in and no leaks. all it needed was the wash arm bearing, also I cleaned out the inside of the water level float,which lowered the water level in the bottom of the dishwasher.

Water was splashing on the floor during cycle

When water started splashing under the door and onto the floor, I noticed that the spray arm was wobbling. The retainer nut was broken, so I ordered it as well as the spray arm bearing ring. After I put them on, it still wobbled and splashed water. That is when I studied the diagram on the web page and noticed that my wash arm bearing ring was broken. So, order all 3 of these parts and your dishwasher will be repaired with no effort at all.

Dishwasher leaks at front door

My dishwasher started leaking at the door. I checked the level, door seal, fill float, etc. Nothing worked. Another reviewer of these parts said to replace the Seal, Lower Sprayarm, the Wash Arm Bearing Ring, and the wash arm. I replaced the seal and the bearing, not the washer arm, as my spray had little to no wear. This fixed the problem! If you dishwasher leaks at the door, it is possible these parts are worn and replacing them wil fix the leak. Thanks to the other reviewer I now have no leaks! Buy a spare nut because they break very easy if overtorqued!

CustomerChristopher from Plantation FL

Washer arm at the bottom was flopping around causing the dishwasher to appear to leak.

Washer arm at the bottom was loose and flopping around and making waves when the bottom was full of water . This caused the dishwasher to appear to leak.
For the Washer Arm Bearing Ring, First I removed the bottom drawer. Then I unscrewed the retaining screw with my fingers. and lifted off the wash arm. I then removed and replaced the Wash Arm Bearing Ring which looks like a top hat with the top cut out. The rim of the " hat " on the one I removed had completely worn away and looked like a 3/4 inch cylinder It took a couple. of minutes to figure out which part I really had to replace. I then put back the wash arm and tightened the screw back, replaced the drawer and everythig worked perfectly.

For the Spray Arm Feed Tube, I first unscrewed the one screw holding the old tube in place. The old part was orginally in two parts. The new part is only one piece. I placed the new part in its place, and replaced the screw.

Water coming out of the washer flooding the floor

I guess some food got caught in the water level sense float and caused it to mal function.
In the diagnosis process, I removed the arm to clean out any debree in the strainer ( found broken glass). I also found that the two rings mentioned above were worn. I replaced them and all is well.
Thank you for fast response with the replacement parts.

The dishes haven't been coming clean. I noticed the bottom wash arm wobbling, so I removed it and found that the ring was completely worn down.

Removed the center screw in, then the wash arm, removed the old seal and replaced it with the new one, replaced the wash arm then the screw in, and was done and ready to try it out.

Broke and worn parts

Actually I had taken the dishwasher most of the way apart to clean out some pieces that had gotten to the pump impellor and were making noises when draining. While doing this I found the flange on the wash arm bearing ring was totally wore away.
The clips on the tinerow clip had been broke for a while so I went ahead and replaced them too. Both parts were easy to replace requiring no tools.
One thing I should mention is that the replacement tinerow clips were gray instead of white.

Water was not dispersing properly which left dishes less than clean

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 #.

Wobble in lower arm-dishwasher not cleaning

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.
