Dishes on bottom rack not clean

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.

Replaced the valve from the side. Easy and quick. The program to identify the part is excellent. The big concern is getting the right part.

After watching the easy to follow how-to PartSelect video on replacing the latch, I had not problem with the replacement. The new latch came complete with two electrical switches, and since the wiring harness terminated with two that were apparently not removable, I simply removed the new ones and inserted the original ones into the new latch.

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.

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.
