I went online and determined what the possible dishwasher parts would cause no water entering. The most recommended part was a valve. I ordered it and afterword obtained a ohmmeter and determined the part in my washer was not faulty. It tested the same as the new part I sent for. The real problem was the connecting metal flex hose that I had installed when I put it in. It had a valve built in that prevents water to flood the kitchen if the hose becomes broke. Even though I tested it out and found water flowing through it, the valve when under pressure had gotten plugged up with dirt particles that caused it to malfunction. I changed the hose and Wa La everything worked fine. I in fact did not have to change the so-called faulty valve. I suggest a detailed evaluation of the problem before purchasing parts. With electrical components it is practically impossible to know if they are faulty without an ohmmeter. Some valves become stuck and if unplugged then plugged back in they will reset themselves. I suggest that if one does not know what they are doing, refrain from messing with electrical parts. Don J.

Once I realized I needed a new handle for my dishwasher, I went online and shopped for the best price... after seeing several sites with higher prices and less information, I landed on PartSelect.com which had a great price and photos of the product so I could visually compare it to the broken part, since it didn't have a part number. I ordered it, and three days later it's on my doorstep! One Torx driver and 10 minutes of my time, I am back in business! Quick, easy, inexpensive. Thank you.

Door locked and had to be pried open

There are a total of 9 screws on the inside of the door when opened, but you need a star screw driver socket, like one for computers (the large drivers works). Put the driver into a drill for much quicker dis-assembly/assembly. 1) Remove the 9 door screws and make sure NOT to pop any connected wires. 2) Remove the connection wires to the door handle carefully (use a screwdriver to work them back and forth until they can be removed (remember which connects to which side). 3) Remove the door handle (already unscrewed). 4) Place the replacement door hand in the same place, aligning the screw holes. 5) Reattach the two connected door wires. 6) Replace door. 7) Screw in 6 screws. 8) Enjoy your working dishwasher again!

We watched the very excellent video on this web site for replacing the Accumulator Filter and followed the instructions it provided. It's possible that we could have just cleaned our existing accumulator filter once we understood what it was and how to get to it, but the results of replacing it have been dramatic. It's like a new dishwasher.

I just followed another persons directions that was in the system already. He had a great idea by taking the new switches out of the new latch and replacing them with the old ones from the bad latch. The old switches are still good and it made for a simple repair. This way you didn't have to disconnect the wire from the switches and now you have two new switches on hand. The old switch had a burnt spot on the connector.

Dishwarsher was making loud almost grinding type noise

I followed the video instructions except I had no idea what tools he was using because he talked so fast, but I figured it out myself. I could not get the guard off but I worked around it. Then I took off the discharge piece. The impeller needed to come off and I unscrewed it but the impeller was stuck tight to the diswasher. It did not slide off like in the video. I ended up having to break up the impeller with pliers until it fell apart enough to take off.That was the only semi difficult part. I replaced impeller. The new screw I ordered did not fit on my machine??? So I used the old one again. I reassembled all and the dishwasher now works good. Still makes a little noise which could be normal. Nothing like it was making.

Circuit breaker to washer off. Removed 11 torx screws holding the inside of the inner door plate, two of which held the handle in place. Handle had a switch attached on either side which were connected by spade connectors to a wire bundle. I could not remove the connector spades so I removed the switches from the new handle and installed the old switches in their place. The fit was not perfect since the new switches were thinner than the old ones, but they slid on the mounting poles ok. The new handle had a screw hole partially broken off when I received it, but I took a chance that the inner cover would still hold it in place. Installed the inner cover (torx screws). Washer works perfectly.

After installing a new filter, :( I tried this. I wish I would have done this first since it's way cheaper and easier!!! If your dishwasher slowly starts to decline in its ability to clean the dishes, it's probably this problem.

First of all and most importantly, shut off the power! Thenremove the bolts from the perimeter of the door with an allyn wrench. Next unplug the 2 switches from the contacts. I needed pliers to do this. Remove the handle and door assembly. Now just reverse the procedure, turn the power on and you are good to go!!!

First replaced the door seal, that slowed it down substantially, but not totally. Next replaced inner door foam insulation strip and that took care of it, no more leaks. There was some corrosion evident after I scraped off the old strip, sanded that smooth with emery sandpaper and then installed new strip. Job done!

Replaced electronic control board burned out. Service representative was extremely helpful. All husband did was check power, shut it off, took out old electronic control board and put in new and replaced screws. Working like a charm.
