Snap tabs for wheels on original part broken - resulting in the top rack being loose on one side and falling down when you touched it.

I aligned the V-shaped tabs on the inner side of the part with the slots in the mating part and simply pulled the old part out (it was already disengaged from the wheels in the metal rail). I then inserted the new part into the slots. One side went in well, but the other side required the part to be bowed slightly to match up the V-shaped tab with the slot. Then the hard part was getting the wheels in position to snap them on. Once in position, it took a bit of effort to engage the snaps in each wheel. I was afraid of breaking the new part. These snaps are very stiff and even with the notch between them there isn't any give, but I was able to apply enough constant, steady pressure to finally get them to snap in without breaking.

The machine would no longer clean dishes.

I discovered that, except for the central tower, all the spray holes were all plugged with I took to be calcium deposites . Using the parts diagram located on this web site, I removed parts. All parts can be removed either by hand, nutdriver or small wrench however you do need a star drive (simliar to an allen wrench) to remove the Pump Cover and Secondary Filter. The Lower Spray Arm unsnaps from the Pump Cover and Secondary Filter. I laboriously removed the deposits from each part down as far as the support filter. The upper spray arm can be removed by unsnapping the hub. the Pump Cover and Secondary Filter is a closed unit so. I purchased a new one. The process is very labor intensive. Next time I am going to consider purchasing all new parts or calling a repair man.

Ordered BOTH the front and rear tines as the front tine showed some superficial rust through the plastic covering in a couple of spots. Re-used the tine holders which were still solid condition and flexible. Snapped bowl holder tine unit out of dishwasher, snapped new tines in place, snapped unit back in dishwasher. Took 5 minutes or less. All other parts of the dishwasher rack were still in excellent condition with no cracked spots on the vinyl covering or rusted spots visible anwhere.

I removed the bottom rack by simply rolling it out of the dishwasher, and removed (unsnapped) the rotating spray assembly. It was easily snapped into the center of the new dishrack. Next, I removed the roller stops from the rail holding the upper dishrack by following the marks (arrows) on the stops. I rolled out the upper dishrack, and rolled in the new one. Finally, I snapped the roller stops back into position.

First you must understand that the end cap is not a solid piece. The plastic facing you is wrapped over the piece behind it. The separation may be obscured by age. Wedge thin bladed screwdriver into the outside edge of end cap at the bid point, a sturdy hunting knife will probably work better. When you hit the seam, pry it apart and fold it back. Unwrap the part and repeat on other side. The dishracks will easily slide out and in.

Turned off power to the washer. Removed the inside door cover. Removed the old board, carefully noting wire connections. (Take a photo of old board at the beginning, if you feel insecure about this.) Installed new board, carefully plugging wire connectors as they had been on old board. Replaced inside door cover. Restored power to washer. Conducted a test run. THE WASHER WORKS!!
By the way, I received the new board two days after ordering it. Now, that's service!
