Hose Clamp

The hose clamp is used to hold the water hose in place which will prevent the hose from leaking water. Sometimes the clamp may lose its ability to latch on, causing a leaking washer. For the installation, you will need a flat head screw driver to replace the clamp and a drill to access the screws to remove the front of the washer. Be careful if you do not have specific clamp pliers as the clamp could fly off. Once the front of the washer has been removed, take a quick look for water damage or any obvious signs of where the leak is coming from. If it is not obvious, run water to test.

Inlet Hose Washer

This high-pressure inlet hose washer, or gasket, is used with many washing machines, refrigerators, and dishwashers to create a watertight or airtight seal in the appliance. It is black in color, made of rubber, and about 1 inch in diameter. Rubber gaskets can get dry and brittle over time, causing them to lose their integrity and malfunction or crack, which will compromise the seal. It is recommended to check other seals before ordering this part in case they also need to be replaced. This is an OEM part sourced directly from the genuine manufacturer.

I powered down the dishwasher at the circuit breaker and then reached under the dishwasher and pulled away... read more

Unplugged dishwasher, removed the 2 wires clipped to the heating element, removed both cracked nuts, replaced with new nuts from PartSelect, clipped on wires, plugged in and did a test cycle. Based upon service quote from Best Buy, I saved myself $125.00 for just the call out, not including parts and labor. read more
