Removed mounting screws from sides of disher. Removed broken piece of connector assy still attached to hinge. Attached new connector assy to hinge then looped it around pulley with spring attached to opposite end. Need both hands to pull spring up to side of tub and connect it. I would suggest replacing both connector assemblies while you have the dishwasher pulled out. Push dishwasher back in and mount with screws.

Snapped the rollers on.

The hinge spring and/or connector assembly were not functioning, so the dishwasher door was extremely heavy.

Replacing the spring and connector assembly (the cord had frayed and broken) was easy and took only a matter of minutes to do. Wrestling the dishwasher in and out of its space under the counter was very difficult. Because my kitchen is compact, I had to move the refrigerator first, then disconnect the Romex cable and water lines from the dishwasher before I could pull it fully from under the counter. The side panels have screws in the front and the back, so the appliance had to be moved out until its back was exposed. But I got the job done and the door works just like a new one now!

Very easy repair. First remove all the screws from the inside of the door, making sure you support the outside part of the door with a pot under it on the floor. Pull the locker part out, remove wire connection with needlenose pliers, and install replacement part. Put door back together, and you're done.

The dishwasher door would fall open when opening if it wasn't lowered slowly.

I disconnected the power cord and the drain hose, with a nut driver, under the sink. I removed the bottom plate that covers the water connection under the dishwasher. With the water turned off I used an adjustable wrench to disconnect the water line. I open the door and disconnected the brackets under the counter top, with a phillips screwdriver, that hold the dishwasher in place. I pulled the dish washer out of its enclosure far enough to fully access the spring loaded mechanism to replace the "connector assembly". Then I put it all back where it belonged.. Go slowly and have patience.

First, PartSelect is great!; fast,& accurate. 1. Inside the dishwasher: remove trays. Remove (A050) lower water sprayer from bottom by pulling up. Remove (F191) top sprayer assembly by pulling away from clip holders. Remove (M110) by removing the holding screws. This part cover the whole sump and has kind-of an open screen circling the unit. Now you will see the white plastic impeller (M120) which is attached the the motor with one Phillips head screw. WARNING. The Phillips head screw (holding the impeller in place) is a REVERSE THREADED SCREW. Turn the screw CLOCKWISE to remove it. Then remove the impeller from the motor shaft. Underneath and outside the washer: Remove the bottom plate. Finally remove the motor by unscrewing the four holding screws and electrical wiring.

These were a simple snap on item. It took longer to carry the parts from the porch that to install. Recently purchased house. Rollers were missing due to overload?? Removed the remaining roller pieces. Cleaned and straightened the axle shafts, spray lubed the tray and snapped the new pieces in place.

Old door seal appeared ok, no rips and seated evenly all around. Pulled that seal out and replaced with new. Seated new door seal after wetting inserted lip. Tested...leak greatly reduced, but still dripping. Removed seal, placed a rubber rope (same rope used for screening) within the tub recess, then reseated new seal. leak ceased. Also replaced the reservoirs on the left side of the cabinet (guide assembly). Old reservoir had debris within so decided to replace. Used regular pliers for the 3 hose spring clamps underneath, and a pair of large neede nose pliers for the fill flange (regular thread).

parts were not exact match with original, even though ordered from schematic. had to bend the replacement part slightly so it would fit into holder pieces. this took about 10 minutes as I was trying to be careful not to break/cut the coating (which would then lead to rust again). Once the piece was bent, just snapped the rack into place.

Pried old rollers with screwdriver. pushed (or 'pliered' new rollers, after straightening gudie pins, if necessary. One new roller broke a minute after installation, but I ordered extras because 6 odl rollers had alread broken), so we're OK for another year or so...

The connector assembly connects to a spring to hold the door from falling down. You need to disconnect the power cord, the water line and the drain hose before you move the dishwasher out the kitchen counter. There are several screws that hols the dishwasher in place top, side and bottom. Removed all screws then pull the dishwasher out very slow. Take the side panel by un-screwing all the screws around the panel in my case where five screws (two in the front so you have to open the door to get to them). You need to keep the door down to connect the assembly to the door bracket and the go through the pulley then to the spring, very easy. Put the side panel back and push the dishwasher in place use the same screws and reconnect the hose the water line and the power and you are done.

There was not enough pressure on the sprayers to clean the dishes. found the pump gasket cut in two and out of place.
