Replacing the door bottom gasket is a breeze, just grasp with a needle nose pliers and pull out. I positioned a small mirror inside the dishwasher so I could see where the gasket fit back in. I pushed the new gasket into the slot and ----done.
The springs require that the dishwasher be pulled out from its opening after removing the screws holding it into the cabinet at the top of the dishwasher. Replacing the springs is easy, just remove the old ones from the the bottom frame holes and the plastic holder and put the new ones on through the plastic holder and then into the frame. Push the dishwasher back into its opening, square it with the cabinet and reinstall the mounting screws.

Located where the dishwasher was leaking from and by referencing the parts catalog determined that it was the water valve. I ordered the part from Parts select and replaced the part when it arrived. Replacing the part was very easy and I now have a working dishwasher again.

All you have to do power down the unit, then disconnect the power connections at the element and remove the old nuts and replace them with the new ones and tighten. Don't tighten too much, the element has a rubber seal that just needs the nut to snug it up.

Disconnected the water line. Pulled the dishwasher out from underneath the counter. Turned the dishwasher on its side. Removed the two screws that were holding the motor in place with a special screwdriver set I had to buy. Removed the motor. Found that the front O-ring on the motor was mangled. Replaced the O-ring. No more screeching. The dishwasher now cleans the dishes better than the day I first bought it. I have to wonder if that O-ring was ever installed properly from the factory.

Pulled the dishwasher out, turned it on the side to gain access to the inlet valve, removed the inlet valve. The hard part was getting the valve fitting that didn't come with the inlet valve. I had to use liqued wrench to loosen the hard water deposits to get it off. Once it was off, putting the new valve on was easy. Also of note, when I tested the old vlalve with an Ohm meeter it read 8 M ohm, not infinity. The new one only measured at about 1k ohm.

Dispenser latch worn out

The actual installation of the dispenser was a breeze. Just unscrew the 6 screws unplug the 2 electrical wires and put the new one in. The problem I had was removing and replacing the front panel of the machine. The metal facing had corroded onto the frame of the door and was difficult to get off. Replacing the door was just as much a pain as it had to be lined up correctly with 4 holes in the frame. Did it in the end everything works great. Cheaper than a whole new machine.
