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

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.

Dishwasher not cleaning dishes

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.

  • Customer: Mark from Brecksville OH

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.

Dishwasher latch started hanging up,

I went online to PartSelect.com and quickly identified the part needed. I ordered the latch and switches. I could have just ordered the latch but felt that since I would have it opened it would be wiser to replace the attaching component switches.

The part was delivered very quickly (in two days). However, upon opening the box I found that the part was broken on the corner where one of the screws would be going through.

I called Partselect customer service and explained the problem and they quickly shipped me a new part without having to send the broken part back first.

The second part arrived in two day and was okay. Great customer service.

This was a very easy repair. Anyone can accomplish this repair with a screwdriver and the appropriate bit (Torx bit #20). It took approximately 20 minutes. As other have said, be sure to first turn off the power to the dishwasher. The hardest part was getting the connectors off the switches. I finally used a flat bladed screwdriver to pry the connectors off the old switches.
