Called repairman: announced that the drain pump was gone. Did not seem right. Went to the website. Found what I was looking for. 49% of the time it was a check-valve issue; only 26% of the time was the pump the problem. Took the unit from under the counter; got it on its side; removed the drain pump. Found my first check-valve, but thediagram showed a second lower one toward the sump. Having located both and purchased two valves and and the lower holder piece, I was ready to finish the job. Quarter-inch nut driver and a screw driver and the valves were in and the drain pump re-installed. Most difficult in my case was getting the dw back into its spot and lashed down! Thanks for the good guidance!

Would only drain intermittenly

Thought it might be check flapper valve on drain pump, so I replaced fairly easily, per instructions. When doing, I noticed the attached relay wires were not secure. When it was on the drain cycle one of the relay wires vibrated badly and loosened the connection enough to only work occasionaly. Would like to put new relay on the pump but they do not sell separately from the pump. (one assembly). I resecured connection and will wait till relay gives out and buy new assembly, but for now it's working perfectly!

delivery of part was very quick, and my husband was able to remove the old part and install the new in about 10 minutes. No service call; no new rack; just a washer that is easy to use again.

Wheels kept coming off

Wheels and axles come separately and no instructions were included. After a few minutes of looking at the parts, I realized you have to put the axles on the wheels and then snap it on the dish rack. Once I did the first one, the others were easy. Made my dishwasher feel like it was new. Obviously the design of the original wheels was faulty as these were a different design.

Followed video and that part to install spring and door handle actuator was easy buy demo on video guy had hand in way where the outside door handle was inserted. I know what slot it went in but did not show how to insert in dishwasher. finally figured it out. But then led lights stopped working correctly so I need to buy some more parts when I figured out what I need.
