My Repair & Advice
Look for your unit number so that you receive your correct parts. Ordered parts from Appliance Parts Pros but only had to use half for this prodject. I turned off the power first then the water going to the unit and disconnected the drain hose. there are two screws that hold the unit into place. They are either on the top ridge or one on each side with probably a plastic cap sealing them from view. Take off the bottom panel at the front base of the unit. Shine a light under the unit to see it there is 1. Water leaking 2. The power cord is not tangled when installed. 3. Check for the springs that hold the tension cord in place.
There are two adjustment legs on the front of the unit that may have to be adjusted in order to slide the unit out. One you have done this slide the unit half way out to expose the work area.
In my case one of the springs popped off and must had rolled under the sink cabinet because it was nowhere to be found. In this case measure the spring on the other hinge to help you decide what size to purchase at your local hardware store. Follow simple directions on you parts package and you should have your unit back in place and running in about a hour.
My total out of pocket cost was about $30.00.
A repair person would charge $50.00 to $75.00 just to show up.
I hope this helps nd happy trails my friends!
