please remember we are not in your home to do the repair or test our self and cant always be 100% and can always overlook something / thanks

you can pick up the seals fro the element at a local appliance parts dealer and fix the the dishwasher but as far as the microwave, i dont know who told you that but you would have to replace the complete cabinet to fix it and have to swap all the parts from one to the new one ,,, its cheaper to replace the microwave ,, Glad i could help you with your problem today so please hit the accept button for me before you leave so i may be paid ,, Thanks
