I simply removed old lower dishrack from dishwasher and discarded. Then I removed new lower dishrack from box and installed it into dishwasher, no tools necessary. How easy is that?! New lower dishrack is a perfect replacement and now our dishwasher is good to go. Thank you PartSelect for your fast service.

The original problem that brought me to Parts select was a broken wheel on the top tray. While searching for part #s I came across several descriptions of dishes not clean . The videos available on line here were very detailed. This encouraged me to go ahead and order the parts. They arrived soon and were accurate to my order. The video on replacing the seal and chopper walked me through the entire job very clearly. Going slow and carefully keeping track of al screws I replaced the chopper, impeller and the filter. The filter did have a tear in the screening which allowed dirty water back up into the dishwasher.

Dishwasher started leaking

  • Customer: Peter from Natick MA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers

Pulled the dishwasher out from the counter. Wiring and supply hose were long enough that I did not need to disconnect them. Suspected a leak in the injector hose but the evidence was circumstantial. That is mineral deposits collected around the area where the house connects to a small plastic box and then into the dishwasher. I replaced the hose in a few minutes and added a clamp on the box side where no clamp was called for. So far, no leaks.

The docking stations just pulled of and snapped on. I took the tube in the back out to make sure the docking stations were seated well but I'm not even sure that was needed. Very easy. Another contributing factor was using rinse aid with an all-in-one gel pack detergent. I let the rinse aid run out and it's been working great ever since.

We recently purchased a new home and it didn't matter how hot we ran the water in the sink before starting the dishwasher, the dishes, especially glasses, were filthy. Extra rinse cycles, pots and pans cycle, nothing worked. After finding this site, we took the chance on what the troubleshooter recommended and bought the accumulator filter and wash impeller. The parts came so fast! We followed the videos on this site step by step and we were successfully able to replace the filter and impeller. The impeller was COATED in nasty slimy grossness; it was obvious the previous owners never rinsed their dishes before running the dishwasher. After replacing these two parts, we have clean dishes! We have switched from tablets to liquid detergent which also helped (not sure why, tablets have worked at our old house just fine).

Dishwasher left residual water at end of cycle.

Very straight forward repair. Parts Select provided the right part with very timely (regular FedEx)delivery. Repairclinic.com provided excellent video to show basic repair steps. Suggest using a "star" tip screw driver to disassemble interior parts of the machine to clean out years of gunk which will reduce the chance that the drive motor will bind/fail (which mine did and which saved me the cost of a new motor or new dishwasher). Upon reassembly, be sure to check water supply copper compression fittings for leaks that moving the machine can cause. Place pads under "feet" of machine to avoid marring wood floor when moving machine.

Dishes on bottom rack not clean

  • Customer: Kathryn from Apopka FL
  • Difficulty: Really easy

I examined the arm on the floor of the dishwasher and found that it had collided with something sticking through the bottom of the lower rack. One of the jets on the tip of the arm, which was supposed to spray sideways to make the arm spin, was missing its top and now sprayed up. This put the arm off balance and kept it from spinning. I ordered a new arm from PartSelect. It arrived much sooner than I expected. With the pliers, I unscrewed the nut holding the arm on, replaced it with the new arm, and refastened the nut. The next time I used the dishwasher all the dishes on the bottom rack were clean.

Door Latch Inoperative

  • Customer: scott from Westbrook CT
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

First disconnect the power to the unit. Then pull the door open manually by holding both outside edges. It took a little bit of effort to overcome the latch lock. Next remove the 8-10 Torx screws that hold the inner door cover on. Once you remove the inner panel disconnect the wires that are attached to the switches on the latch assembly. I had some issues in pulling the wires off and had to resort to pliers and prying with a screw driver. Once the wires come off replace the wires on the new latch making sure you keep the wires in the same orientation as they were taken off. They are color coded to avoid confusion. Replace the Torx screws making sure to line up the latch in its original position. Overall its a very straight forward and easy repair. The hardest part was getting the wires to come off the broken latch.
