Isolated the leak and found the nut had split thereby allowing a loose seal and water penetration. Ordered 2 nuts just in case the other goes and the installation was easy. Unplug the unit, remove baseplate, remove screws under the countertop, and slide the unit out a bit. Use needlenode pliers to remove terminal connection and replaced nut. Reverse it for assembly. 3 minutes tops $6 later it is done. Easy money saved by a DIY.

Taking out the old lower gasket was easy. Installing the new one wasn't. I removed the outer door and slipped in the new gasket into the sleeve on the lower inner door and pushed it in until only a small amount of the gasket was showing. Closed the door and the gasket was NOT slightly sticking out as the video shows but was laying down on a curved plastic part. Opened the door and the gasket popped out. I really think I installed it correctly but it never stayed in place. Upon further investigation I noted different brands had the same problem (maytag, amana, ge). Because of poor design I have now called a serviceman.

Door was leaking

It was a 2 or 3 minute job. I grabbed the seal on the far right side of the door (it sticks out a centimeter or so), and pulled it out towards the inside of the dishwasher After that I ran folded paper towels from side to side in the slot until they came back clean. The first time I tried to slide the new one in it just dropped into the door. It turns out that on my dishwasher the slot that the seal goes into is a bit further back than what you can see from the top. I lined it up again, but this time I reached my fingers into the slot and held it up until it slid in. Even with dropping it in the door and fishing it back out I was done in 3 minutes or less. No more leaks

This tip concerns the bottom door gasket. The information they missed in the installation video is that the slot that the gasket fits into is hidden. It is NOT the slot the technician initially lifts up on to insert the gasket. You really can't see it unless you take the front cover off the door. That's what I finally did to understand how the gasket fits in the door. As you insert the gasket be sure to keep it flat against the backside of the panel you are lifting up on, otherwise you will miss the slot altogether. Also, the way my gasket was shipped was a problem - it was sent in a small bubble pack and the gasket was sharply bent and kinked, making it almost impossible to install. Make sure it's flat and straight before trying to install.

Followed the on line instructions. Repair went very quickly. Easy to do. Glad to have my dishwasher working again. Was worth my time to save all the money of calling a repair man. If a 56 year old woman can do it anyone can. Great part and fast shipping.

Remove lower front face by removing 2 screws. Turn power off at the breaker. Disconnect the power by removing the power cover screw and cover. This is located on the bottom right of the unit, next undo the wire nuts, and pull out the wires. Next turn off the water supply to the dishwasher. Then using an adjustable wrench disconnect the water line. Be careful it could bend. Once the power and water is removed gently slide out the unit. The pump is located on the right side under the dishwasher. Remove the to screws holding the pump in place. Unless the repair is done outside place a drain pan under the pump to catch any left over water. Next using needle nose pliers squeeze the clamp closest to the drain and pull the hose off. Pull out the pump, squeeze the second clamp, and remove the hose from the pump. Place hose on new pump and the work backwards installing the pump.

Bought tub rubber gasket and door gasket online. Neither came with instructions. I went to you tube and found videos that matched my model dishwasher. Only problem was the installation of the gasket for the door. it's plastic and the video said to put it in one way which I did but it did not work. There is a notch in the gasket and watching the video, as you're facing the dishwasher with the door open the notch goes to the right. Dishwasher still leaked. I reversed the gasket, with the notch to the left and that seemed to solve it.
