At first remove the lower rack to give more room for you to lean over the inside of the dishwasher then remove the old gasket tub 90 inches long make sure that you know which side goes where, so that it will be easy to put the new one. Then press the gasket firmly on the side.Now you can start your dishwasher with no leak and saves you a lot of money for buying a new one.

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.

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.

Never worked on a dishwasher before but quickly learned that on this particular one, it's only this thin little brass nut that tightens down the element from the underside of the washer. If not tight enough, water drips right down onto the electrical connections. In this case water began to drip and the heat from the electrical current began melting a clear rubber shield thing. Luckily I was home during the cycle and figured out the problem. Great website that seems to have all necessary parts for my washer. Quick shipment!

After I received the Motor Shaft Kit I removed the spray arm tower and removed all screws, the center screw would not come out of the impeller, was stripped. Used a hammer and chisel to split the center of impeller and was able to remove. Also had to split the bottom impeller because it would not come out. All the parts that came in kit fit perfectly. Thank you Very much.

Removed the service panel below the door (4 hex-head screws), then reached in and took the old broken spring out (right side) and hooked the new one up.

Glad I bought 2 springs - the other one (left side) broke about a week after I fixed the first one! Replaced it the same way. Helps to have small hands - you can't really see where you're putting the springs but can feel where they should go.

I had to replace the door gasket but it would not go in very easy..So I put the gasket in a sink of warm water so it would be more pliable. Then it went on fairly easy.
