You need a window crank removal tool or...a really small pick tool to remove the horseshoe shaped clip that holds the window crank on. Be careful when removing...it may fly across the room and you'll spend an hour looking for it. Also, go to metraonline.com, enter your vehicle info and the speaker sizes for your vehicle will be displayed.
Yes you need a special tool. I will do my best as to explain how it works. As you can see there is a small gap between where the inside of the hose that goes on and along the shaft of the filter. There is a spring in there. The tool you use inserts into that gap to open that spring. As the tool is in there you just pull off the line. They have those tools at your local auto parts store and if you just tell them you need that kind of tool they should know what you need. However there are different sizes but you can get the one that has a different size on both ends as to be sure you have the right one. Once you get the tool you will see how simple it really is. I hope you understood and I hope this helped. Good luck.
The dishwasher SHOULD have a three prong cord, or be hardwired using using a 3 conductor electrical wire capable of handing 15 to 20 amps (12 or 10 gauge wire). If you desire to use a cord with a plug on the end, you can purchase a power tool replacment cord rated at 15 amps or higher from the hardware store (I have found power tool replacement cords to be very durable). Make sure you purchase one that is long enough the accomodate pulling the dishwasher out from under the counter, if required. The power cord is installed in a junction box behind the lower toe panel that's located directly below the door. The wire color coding is as follows:
BLACK - HOT (120 VAC)
WHITE - NEUTRAL (0 VAC)
GREEN - GROUND
Match the color wires with the wires inside the dishwasher junction box and twist together using wire lugs. Attach the ground wire to the appropriate ground lug.
If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
I'm not sure what the sequence would be on your particular model as Whirlpool dishwashers can differ in operaiton. However, if you remove the lower kick panel under the dishwasher door, there should be a tech sheet either directly behind the panel, or tucked inside the door. The tech sheet will list all troubleshooting tips and any fault codes that the owner/operator's manual does not list. This is the SAME sheet the repairman will reference when they come to your home on a service call. Please let me know if you still require assistance. I hope this helps you.
Have a look underneath dishwasher by removing front bottom access panel, the one touching the floor. Look for a round plastic disc about size of 4 jam lids together, centre front of dishwasher. Inside of it is a foam disc that will float up off the base of the dishwasher if water causes it to do so. This floating up will trip a switch. Clean base of dishwasher of water and maybe test the switch with multimeter. Reset fault by holding down start button.
