This was fantasticlly easy. Less than 2 minutes to remove the screws. Made a mark on each of the two wire assemblies to ensure proper replacement. Pulled off the wires. Connected the wires to the new assembly. Placed it into the opening and re-tightened all the screws. Probably five minutes! Works better than new. THANK YOU!

Leaking under right front by float switch

  • Customer: James from Three Rivers MI
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

Unplugged the power cord and removed front toe kick panels. Used a small mirror to see the location of the screw holding the float switch in place and removed the screw, disconnected the float from inside the dishwasher removed the float switch and replaced. It was a simple repair and so far seems to have solved the leaking problem. There was some unusual wear to my old float and the switch looked like it may have been leaking a small amount as it had lime build up on the switch lever. The part came with an easy to follow instruction sheet. PartSelect has saved me money on repair work I thought I would not be able to do myself. The website is very helpful in resolving what he problem may be and what parts are needed. Fixed four other appliances using this site over the past few years and they ship quick.

easy, took 20 minutes to unscrew panel (after unplugging electricity), remove 2 electrical connections, put in new latch, reconnect 2 electrical connections & screw back on - saved $80 in having someone come out to service.

Dishes weren't getting cleaned fully

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

Checked to see if the disposer was stuck or sprayers filled with food. They were clean so I listened and checked to see if the sprayers were spraying while the dishwasher was running. It was not. Checked online for answers and they said that there might not be enough water in the dishwasher since it did not fill appropriately. I added water during the cycle and then the sprayers were working properly until it drained and filled again. Installed the new water inlet valve and all works properly now.

I unscrewed the inner part of the door (not the bottom screws)from the front of the dishwasher. This allowed the latch assembly to be disconnected by the two wire leads. They were tough to get off, maybe due to age and mositure but they did break loose. The new part was than connected easily to the two wire leads. I put the handle assembly back into place and put the screws back in the door. And now it works like a champ again!

handle was broken

The basic repair was easy, selecting the part on-line was the hardest part of the process. I was afraid the part would be similar, not the same. But the part fit exactly. Once I deduced that the circuit breaker was off, it worked perfectly. The video was helpful to assure I installed it correctly. Thanks for your help Part Select.

1- replaced accumulator filter and docking station with flappers, the docking station with flappers may not have been necessary? But what the heck, if your into it this far why not. Check out the tech. Video it was helpful. The dishwasher works like new now. 2- the door latch switch was worn out, to replace this part I first unplugged the power cord then removed the 8 screws from the inner panel of the door exposing the door latch assembly. Unplugged the two connectors and installed the new part and reassembled everything, pretty easy! The dishwasher works like new now, and for around $ 102.00 bucks, saved lots of money doing it myself, thank you Parts Select for your help. Carlos, Lancaster, California.
