The bottom gasket was really delivered quickly for the Xmas season. Watched the online video for removing and replacing the Bottom Gasket. Five minutes later was loading dishwasher for the trail run. No leaks dishwasher back online.

I replaced the bottom gasket and the tub gasket. replacing them both was very easy. I pulled the tub gasket out by using a screw driver and popping out a section then pulled it out. Installed new one by just pushing it in. Bottom gasket was simple as well. There was a notch in the gasket on the right side so you can't screw it up on which side goes where. Pulled the old one out and pushed the new on in. I found it easier to install the right side with the groove first. Both gaskets helped. However dishwasher was still leaking. Another person had mentioned that the spinner that shoots the water on the bottom, had a hole in it and was shooting water towards the door. I examined both of them and found that the bottom one had a bigger hole on the very end. It looked like it hit something and made the hole bigger. I temporarily put duct tape over it and it has't leaked. Plan on ordering the new part today.

I had to do this with the dishwasher still installed, the pump was right in front when I removed the kick panel, no problems, just loosened the drain hose and the discharge hose clamp, took the pump off the clips and reversed the procedure and it was essentially all over at that point. Really easy installation but would have been easier if I had taken the unit out and turned it up on it's back.

I viewed a very short video on how to replace the lower gasket on the website which was extremely useful. I then ordered the part via standard shipping and it arrived very quickly. I used the flat head screwdriver to gently loosen the old gasket which has mineral buildup on it and was stuck into place. Sliding the new one in was a snap. This was one of the best sites as you could search for the part by describing the problem. I would definitely use it again!

After getting an upper spray arm locally that did not screw on, I ordered one from this site hoping it was a different one but when I got it, it was the same. Tried that one and no luck either. Called the local repair place and they sent out someone. He could not get it on either so finally called tech at Frigidaire only to find out they had changed the piping coming into the dishwasher. To get this part to work he needed to pull out the dishwasher and apply pressure from the top while screwing the part on. Then it went on fine. So $95 later and the cost of the part we finally have a working dishwasher again.
