I had to pull the appliance out from under the cupboard, remove the bottom dish rack, go to the back of the dishwasher and remove the two plastic nuts and the two wires from the heater, then remove the heating element from the inside of the appliance and reverse the order. The dishwasher works fine now.

The rubber gasket around the tub of the dishwasher had a couple of breaks in it due to catching it in the door when it came loose...it stuck to the door when we opened the door.

I removed the old gasket, cleaned the gunk out of the track with a hand-held steamer and a paper towel, and installed the new gasket in the track. I used a screwdriver in a few spots to make sure that it was inserted correctly...easy as pie!

I had not needed to install the mounting brackets that came with the dishwasher because the old counter top was 1 inch lower than standard and I was able to just wedge the dishwasher into the space and it would not tip.

I simply disconnected the power line to the dishwasher and pulled it out enough to install the mounting brackets. The installation manual that came with the dishwasher described how to install the brackets and I simply followed directions.

There were a few possible causes for the problem. We started by making sure we didnt have a simple clog somewhere in the line. A pair of plyers and a screwdriver were the only tools I needed to check the water line in. Just turned the water off pullesd the dishwasher out and started checking lines. We couldnt test the inlet water valve except with a volt ohm meter so we left that and moved on to the float. The float seemed to be moving freely so we pulled the float switch out. I could easly see some electrical damage to the float switch and ordered the part from part select. Part took about 3 days to arrive and was a very simple switchout. We turned the water back on and and started the machine. All working.

The top spinner fell off and would not snap back on

Bought a replacement spinner which came with the litte round connector piece. The connector piece had worn down (the spinner probably got caught on a tall glass or pot). Anyway, for ease of access, you remove the bottom and top racks, unscrew two screws (one on the top and one on the back of the dishwasher that holds the water piping). Then pull the water piping assembly down from the top until you can remove the round connecting piece. The tip of mine was worn off which is why the spinner would not stay on. Once you replace the round connector piece, snap the spinner into it, put the screws back in and you are done. Very easy fix for about $22 including S&H.

The *great* PartSelect how to video convinced me that I could fix this myself. I removed the old, worn out door gasket, noting how the old one fit into the groove. I cleaned the groove really well to make sure I got any gunk out. I just pressed the new gasket into the groove with my fingers, then used a wooden chopstick to press it in securely. Super, super easy! .) (I did not need to replace the strike plateAnd, the hint about how fast standard shipping is was a nice touch. Thanks so much!

Unfortunately, a mouse had made its home on top of our surround insulation. For hygienic reasons, I replaced the surround.

1. Turn off the electrical switch that powers the dishwasher. 2. Open the door of the dishwasher and find the two phillips head screws that secure the top of the dishwasher to the kitchen counter. 3. Remove the screws. 4. Gently move the machine side-by-side a bit while pulling it out onto the kitchen tile (be careful, the water-supply hose, electric cord, and dishwasher drain hose may not be long enough to allow you to pull it out very far - don't break or kink the hoses). 5. Remove (pull off) the black plastic fastener located on the bottom/rear of each side of the dishwasher. 6. Remove the old surround. 7. Lay the new wrap in place and secure with the two plastic fasteners. 8. Push back into place, secure the two screws, check your hoses.

First checked my house cb's. Then visited this site and found in troubleshooting guide that the problem was 6x% likely the thermal fuse; location was shown on parts guide. Used my multimeter to verify that fuse was open. Order new one from your site. Installed after receipt and all is well. Most difficult part was getting the door panels in position to reinstall sheetmetal screws. Hope this helps.

Old gasket was leaking

Removed the old gasket by hand by pulling on the end of the gasket and slowly removing the gasket. Wipe the are with a clean damp rag to remove any soap or debris buildup. Follow the instruction that accompany the gasket, slowly insert the gasket and do not stretch the gasket as you push by hand into the slot. Run the dishwasher with a rag at the bottom. I had to run it twice, I believe the gasket has to relax and seal the door from leaking. GOOD LUCK, you probably saved yourself a lot of money in service repairs costs.
