The door gasket, part 154576501 did the trick. Your website was very helpful; it listed the percentage of times that the part resolved the problem. Very useful when you are guessing what the cause may be. It took me a little while to figure out how to put it in. It didn't seem like it set in place, but upon closer inspection I noticed a track to house the gasket. You don't have to take the door off, but doing so helped me to make sure the gasket was properly installed.

Opened door fully, removed the tray. I was unable to remove the bottom gasket, or even see it at first. Many years of use actually made the gasket stick pretty firmly to where it was. Used my needle nose to pinch it and it came out very easy when I pulled. Cleaned the area ( and it needed it!) slid the new gasket in place without a problem. The Tub gasket came out without a hitch. Measured it to the new one and cut to length. Stuffed it in the crack and did some dishes. Small leak still in same spot. It's kinda of a funky fit in the corner so was a little more careful stuffing it in and it worked fine after that. Thanks...cheap, quick fix.

Unscrew the threaded base by twisting counter clockwise. Align the new base and upper spray arm to the threads where old part was removed and turn clockwise. Hand tighten only.

After many practices trying to replace the broken spray arm, it was a breeze to replace the new arm. I did not have to take off the upper rack as shown in the video. It took me about 2 minutes at best to screw the new arm in place. The dishwasher is working well. Thanks for your interest.

Not enough water to clean dishes

I used the flow chart online to determine the water inlet valve (WIV) was probably the problem. 1: Cut the power (circuit breaker) 2: turn off the water 3: Removed the lower, front panel (depending on age, you may want to replace the screws) 4: Disconnected electrical cord, waste water line and fresh water supply. This is when the bucket comes in handy. The waste water is NASTY!. At this point, I pulled the DW out and rolled it on its side (Bucket time). I removed the defective part and replaced it easily Simple swap. Clean the old teflon tape off the threads and put fresh tape on. Then I reversed the instructions and opened the water. Check for leaks before you finalize the installation. Then power it up and run a cycle to test. I took a coffee cup and put it in the top rack right side up and checked it periodically. If it keeps getting filled up, it's working. Then i ran a dishwasher cleaner through it, as it had developed a case of the crud sitting still. The new part is quieter than the old one, I can't even hear the water running into the DW now. I am SO happy that $30 worth of parts kept me from spending $500 on a new DW. Thank you Parts Select!, your installation video is great.

Water was leaking from under the Dishwasher. Inspection showed problem appeared to be a cracked solenoid water inlet valve

Water was leaking from under the Dishwasher. I took the lower front panel off to peak under the dishwasher with a flashlight to see if I could identify the problem.the leak appeared to be a cracked water inlet solenoid valve. I tuned off the water at the shutoff valve under the sink. Upon delivery of the replacement I disconnected the supply line from the compression nut of the brass Dishwasher Elbow with an adjustable wrench. Next I unscrewed the DW elbow from the water inlet valve using an adjustable wrench and a Channel Lock Pliers. Next remove the mounting screws holding the inlet valve in place and it dropped down allowing me to pull the electrical quick connect off and use a pliers to disconnect the fill tube. The process was reversed. Remount the hose to the new solenoid valve. Connect the electric. Remount the valve with the 2 mounting screws. Use Teflon tape to reinstall the DW elbow. Use pipe dope to reconnect the water supply line to the compression nut side of the DW elbow. Turn on the water and run Dishwasher to confirm repair is ok. Remount lower access panel and smile. Job well done. Exactly as shown in the video.

First I tried to pry the arm off the basket with a screwdriver. Then I googled it and there were the simple instructions, and I followed them, pull to take off, to put on push after aligning arm on basket til it snaps on.

Water inlet valve leaking

first shut-off power and water! removed bottom cover panels and top two mount screws from DW. slide DW out about one foot for easier access. disconnect inlet valve wiring harness. then remove the screws that hold the unit to the dishwasher. then disconnect water outlet hose (mine was a black accordian type tubing) use your pliers to move back the clamp. it will take a little bit of twist and pull to get that hose off. next use your adjustable wrench and pliers to unscrew inlet copper tubing from the valve unit. the old valve should now be free from the DW. replace in reverse , remember to use silicon tape. I left the bottom panels off for a couple more days to check for leaks. my wife told me that the first washing after the fix did not really clean the dishes as well , but after that everything was back to normal. so perhaps run the machine empty once?
