I took the inside cover off the door. After I determined that the latch was broken inside, I located the part through PartSelect. I ordered the part Tuesday afternoon with regular FedEx ground shipping. It was supposed to ship Wednesday and arrive in 3-5 days. It arrived Thursday! The thing I forgot to do when uninstalling the broken part was to unplug the dishwasher...minor shock. After unplugging it, I used a screwdriver to remove the broken assembly, plugged in the new one, put the inside cover back on and plugged in the dishwasher. It works perfectly! Thanks, PartSelect!

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.

Door latch broke. Dishwasher would not open.

We noticed that the dishwasher latch was getting harder and harder to open until finally one day it totally broke and I wound up with a full load of clean dishes stuck inside the dishwasher. Luckily my husband was able to yank the door open to get to the dishes out and perform the repair. With the dishwasher open, we unscrewed all the screws that hold the plastic panel on the inside of the door (they also hold the door latch in place). We unplugged the old latch from the wire clips, plugged the new latch in and screwed everything back together. Super simple and now it's as good as new!

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.

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!

Dishwasher would not come on.

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.
