Lower spray arm seal replacement
Remove upper tray and spray arm. Remove two screws retaining pipe for upper spray arm and overhead. Unscrew retainer on top of lower spray arm and remove. Gently rotate the upper feed pipe clockwise until pipe can be removed from lower pipe. You may then remove the lower pipe and bearing housing where the seal is. Reverse order for reassembly. I also replaced upper spray arm bushing. Very simple, remove one screw and the arm will come out.

broken mount for spin arm
I removed broken mount by gently bending tabs, pressed new mount into upper dish rack, attached the spin arm and secured the mount with the screw.

A snap---it took less than 2 minutes after only a two day turnaround from ordering the part to receiving it at home..

Fantastic service. Thanks!!!!

Upper rack not cleaning-whole dishwasher not cleaning
Used bowls in upright position in upper shelf determining no water to upper shelf after running in rinse cycle. Added a cup of Vinegar in rinse cycle. Performed bowl test in upper rack & still no water in bowls. Dismantled inside of unit by removing both spray arms & found lower seal deteriorated & upper seal in need of replacing. Replaced seals & redid bowl test & found no water getting to top rack still. Found utube vid showing removing garbage disposal portion of unit. Requires removing screen in bottom of dishwasher. One screw attaches garbage disposal cover. Found non food items & food by broken garbage disposal. Repaired disposal, removed debri & reinstalled all components. Redid bowl test in upper shelf & bowls were overflowing!!????Dishwasher works GREAT now & can hear garbage disposal operating along with massive water being sprayed!!!

Primary problem door dropped open
I first replaced the door balance kit. I had to unhook the water supply to pull the unit out. I replaced the door balance kit first. The pieces were slightly different than my old parts, but fairly easy to figure out. Also, the spring was off on one side so had to confirm where to reconnect it. That took about 30 minutes. I then took out the racks and installed the chopper. The old one came out easily, but it took about 20 minutes to seat the new chopper properly and then reassemble the lower arm. This part of the repair was about another 30 minutes total. Lastly, I replaced the upper rack adjusters, which had broken a while ago and I had pulled together with nylon straps. The new adjusters have metal screws which should be more durable than the plastic clips used in the original equipment. This part of the job took about another 20 minutes, but was easy to complete. The dishwasher door works like new and the top rack is easier to load with the adjusters working properly again.

Loud sound
Just start to look at all the different videos on the problems that can be making that loud sound and just have the feeling for the circulation pump but then it seems that changing the circulation pump and motor assembly was easier and more logic for a 13 year old appliance. Just start and went that way ordering the part and following all the video instructions that came to be easier than I thought. Thank you

machine has been extremely noisy for over 6 months, then quiet running altogether.
Double checked the model number , watched the video, ordered the parts . I got them in about three days , They looked exactly like the old ones. Proceeded with the disassembly just like the video explained and everything was going great.until I got to the installation part. The new unit would not fit in the sump. even though it looked exactly the same size as the old one. I worked with it every way I could, lubricating it and applying light pressure and finally beating the fire out of with a hammer and it just would not seat in the bottom of the sump. I removed it and reinstalled the old one and fit right in. So I removed all the parts out of the new unit and installed them in the old housing. From that point on the installation went well and now the dishwasher is as quiet as a mouse and so is my wife now. I did not have anything to measure the diameter of the unit accurately but eyeballing it with a rule it looked to be maybe a n 1/8" larger. So it appears to have been a tolerance problem. Not happy about that but I was able to get dishwasher going and the video was great help .
