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

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

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.

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.

The handle was unable to open the diswasher door.

I removed all of the torque screws located on the inside of the door. They hold the face of the door and also hold the handle and latch assembly. It was super easy. I have to say that this was my first time ordering from PartSelect and I am very impressed. The part came basically the next day; it was well packaged and was the right part. They made this repair a pleasure. I will use them again!

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!

Followed video. Everything went together fine, but leaked water around motor shaft seal. Read comments section on video and someone had the same problem. I had pushed the seal into base too deep. I pulled it out and reseated it. It worked without leaking after that. Bob

Relatively easy replacement of washer door handle. Most time consuming part of replacement was finding the proper screw driver head to match the screw heads to remove the interior door panel. Removed the 12 interior door panel screws and the broken handle assembly. Replaced the broken handle assembly, which required attaching four spade terminals from a wire harness and then the replacement of the 12 door screws.
