Two years ago the same problem cost us $160.00 to replace the same two parts. The latch failed in the exact same location and I'm disappointed that GE hasn't redesigned the latch to eliminate the sharp 90 degree angle at the point of failure. I purchased two sets of parts for $35.00 and replaced them with some small effort and little risk. I still have a set of parts for the next time it fails. It sure beats calling an authorized GE repairman and paying $160.00 or possibly more .

After finally getting the door open and opening it up, the problem became apparent. Partselect helped me locate the part. it came quickly, and the repair was simple. It took me two trys to discover how the spring fit, but once I looked closely at the diagram, it was a cinch. I was a very proud dishwasher owner!

Parts were easy to find, easy to order and arrived prior to the advertised delivery date. Instructions for replacement were easy to understand and in about 10 minutes the old part was removed, and the new one installed. thanks for your prompt and efficient company.

SOmehow the upper rack end cap went missing. I needed to replace the cap so the rack would not pull all the way out and fall down.

I used needle nose pliers. I bent the stainless steel guide arm out so that I could insert the end cap. Once the end cap was installed I used the same needle nose pliers to "pinch" the guide arm back tight around the end cap. The end cap had premanufactured "notches" to hold the end cap in place once the guide arms are pinched down.

water leaking from sump

I had a slow leak from vicinity of sump. I replaced sump and pump connector as these were only likely sources of leak based on parts select history. Turns out plastic tub had a fine crack. The crack was directly under the heating element which had melted the plastic and over time created this small crack that was found by a repair guy immediately. I even suspected a tub leak and searched for one but being directly under the element made it invisible to me and in an area I did not suspect (front). Oh well - also learned GE charges $100. to come to my house, show me a crack, and leave (I repaired it with epoxy).

I removed the eight screws around the door. Slid the inside of the door up just a little ways pulled the rubber gasket straight out to the right of the door, watched to see what direction it was attached slid the other one in on the track you can't get it wrong. Put the panel to the door in place and put the screws back. Very easy!! Thank You, Sandra Salyards

I had a small leak from under the dishwasher which turned out to be a tiny hole in the Pump Connector. With the power off I pulled the dishwasher out of the cabinet and disconnected the water and drain lines to give me more room. I put the dishwasher on its back to have access to the pump assembly. A couple of nut drivers and the pump connector is accessible. Replaced the pump connector and over tightened it "Crack"... had to replace the Main Conduit connector ($50). I was able to turn a simple $20 repair into a $70 repair. Now that's talent!
