This product is a universal accessory item compatible with several brands; check to see if your model number is compatible. Installing this accessory will require basic hand tools, some disassembly of the dishwasher and novice repair experience. You must unplug the dishwasher or shut off the house circuit breaker for the appliance before installing this part. Also turn off the dishwasher's water supply before you begin.
