After ordering the tub gasket and splash shields I ordered another lower door gasket. It was 1/16 of n inch to long but fixed the problem. Did spend a lot of money to get it fixed as called an expert who came over to the house.--Larry

Some of the silverware slip thru the silverware holder. During the drying cycle the exposed silverware was to close to the arm and melted an area of the arm which caused water to seep out onto the kitchen floor.

The first sensible thing to do is to find the circuit breaker for your dishwasher and switch it off so as not to short anything (or yourself) out. Next, remove the lower piece of metal bracket from beneath the door by unfastening the two sheet metal screws (a nut driver or a screwdriver will do the job), taking note as to how it comes off so as to facilitate replacement. Some will recommend loosening the screws at the top from beneath the counter and pulling the machine forward a bit to gain access to the sides but, if you have a small enough hand (as I do), you can just reach in there and and hook the spring into place. I didn't want to risk loosening any plumbing! You'll need a flashlight to see where the ends connect. And, if one spring is still intact, you can reference that to reassure yourself you've got it right. I was able to stretch the spring out by hand and hook the thing to that little plastic gadget that pivots when you open the door. That's it! Button her up! You're done!

After reading the instructions. The old part came with the use of needle nose pliers very easily. Replacement was just as easy. I just lined up the part and made sure it went all the way in, and I was done. Didn't have to call a repair service to make the replacement and saved at least $100 or more with buying and installing the part myself. Will use this site in the future if needed. Very pleasant experience.

The spray arm simply clips to a base in the center of the dishwasher tub. The repair takes 30 seconds - the lower rack slides out, twist the base of the old spray arm to lift it off, and snap the new one on.

First I pulled out the old gasket, used this to measure for the new gasket, cut to right length, pushed new gasket into the track and washed a load of dishes. No leaks! This took about 2 minutes to complete.

Removed two screws on each side, lower half. Inside, removed six screws. Replaced the assembly and replaced all screws.
Not worth the fifty dollars for the part, just to have a door open at the right time to empty soap. Quite a hefty price to pay considering the price of the machine

Well, first of all I want to thank you for letting me know there were two springs and also for showing the two springs because I had almost ordered from another site the official Frigidare site which did not show the other spring, the right one. I would have ordered the wrong spring. I got a spring from you with shipping (very fast Fed-X) for the price of their spring alone. Also, your site was very helpful in explaining how to put it on and advised to get two which I intended to but only ordered one, It was so easy. Beaucoup thanks!

So easy it shouldn't even count as a repair, really. The dishwasher, there when I bought the place, had a lower rack that wouldn't roll out as it should. That's because there were no wheels on the left side.

The rack lifts out easily. These wheels snap on to small protrusions from the wire rack.
