Removed broken threads from where spray arm nut threads in with a pair of needle nose pliers. Put everything back in as schematic on PartSelect.com showed and the dishwasher runs great. Switched from using the hard detergent to the liquid gel. Haven't had any issues since! Great sight to find all of your appliance needs!

It was really easy. I took out the top rack, unscrewed the sprayer from the rack, screwed in a few items and snapped the thing into place. It was easy. If I were competent, the repair could easily have been done in under half an hour. It did not help having my wife and children laughing at me as I bumbled through everything,

Manifold had several holes in it - it was an older 2-piece version made of soft plastic. New replacement part seems to be much more durable. Also noticed water level in the bottom of the tub was very low; when I added water during the wash cycle it ran much better. Replaced the water inlet valve, the tub then filled properly with water, water sprayed properly to the top of the dishwasher and the dishes were clean.

I used a socket to hold the motor front pulley and then I tried with a Vice Grip to hold the square part of the fan to breake it loos, but the vice grip only sliped and rounded the square part, so I had turn the fan by hand to get it loos. After that it went good. I also changed the dum ring and bearing kit. Now it runs like new again.

After emptying the dishwasher the bottom had no water in it. A few hours later there was water in bottom. This told me the inlet valve was leaking. I took the bottom kick plate panels off. Directly in front on left side was the water inlet valve. Remove mounting screw, disconnect electrical connection, the water feed and discharge hose and remove valve. Install new valve. 100% DONE! Reinstall front panels after checking for leaks. At 71 years of age my typical 20 minute job actually took less time.
