I went according to the video. even though it would have been easier to just plug in the new fuse, I cut and replaced the wire clips, as I figured there was some resistance in the replacement wire to keep the fuse from blowing again.

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.

We found a youtube video....and followed the directions. We unscrewed the inside panel of the door...all the way around. Then, we took off the outside panel which revealed the screws on the backside of the dispenser. After unscrewing that, we were able to push out the old dispenser, and push in the new one...... screw that in and then replace the door screws. We were done in under an hour.

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!

The upper wash arm mount broke

The part isn't the same as the old one, but you could see how it worked easy enough. Problem was, once I got the part, it didn't screw on like the old one, it clipped to the rack. Nice! ...except that it's designed for the narrow spacing on the rack, but, if I used the narrow spacing on the rack that held the clip well, then it wasn't in the right location to hold the spray arm to the water hose. The solution has to be attended to frequently, to remount it, but that's not a big deal (until it breaks), but the remount is necessary because you have to span a broader distance than it's designed to, by about a quarter inch. It works, but it doesn't. Just because the unit's pretty old, but it still works GREAT!
