I watched the Video that was supplyed with the e-mail and when the part got here I new just what to do and it took maybe 15 min at the most. You saved me over $100.00 from what we had to pay once before for the same problem to a repair man. And now I know where to buy my parts for all my appliances when they fail and with KitchenAid it seems to be quite often.

Old gasket was broken in places and old. Installing the new one was easy- no tools required. Just pull out the old one and press in the new one. Washer still leaks because door does not close all the way- need to figure out how to get it to shut tight. Maybe the latch is loose or worn.

Not cleaning properly and loud noise

Followed the video and changed it out in 20 minutes which did not fix the problem entirely, but I went back to the list of symptoms and watched a video on exchanging the Chopper assembly. I disassembled the interior and found broken glass and wire and string restricting the rotational functions. No replacment was necssary here, but a good cleaning was in order. This made it run like new and the glasses came out shiny again. These step by step videos have even made me think about becoming an appliance repairman. LOL! This is about the 8th time I have had success with Part Select. I have had no failures. Thank you for giving away all the secrets. YOU DEFINITELY HAVE SAVED ME AND MY FAMILY TONS OF MONEY!

The first check was for any circuit breakers that tripped. Upon finding the circuit breakers intact, I removed the front panel from the dishwasher and verified power was up to the panel, which is was. I removed the kick panel and located documentation for schematics and troubleshooting. This led me to the bi-metal switch (non-resettable). After turning off the power, I checked the continuity across the switch and found it was open. Then I provided a short across the switch and turned the power on to verify panel was working properly, which is was. This verified the bi-metal (thermal switch) was the issue. I then ordered the switch and installed it per the instructions. While looking for the switch, I did run across another post suggesting the additional wire leads with the kit should be included since they act as a heat sink. With the new switch installed along with the additional wire leads, the dishwasher is working fine.

First pulled the end cap off of the slide rail, then attached the rack mount to the correct place on the rack. This was determined by mirroring the mount on the opposite side of the rack. Next, I simply slide the wheel into the open rail and reattached the end cap. Repair completed.

1.] I ordered the wrong part and I altered the contacts to make it work, it did'nt. 2.] Found out the right part # and could'nt hook it up cause I cut off the connection to adapt the first part. 3.] So I had to order an entire wire harness to get a small selenoid connecter. I made the connection and it still did'nt work. 4.] Ordered a control panel and when it came it was the wrong one. 5.] The company sent a new right control panel and BINGO! 6.] Say good night Gracie.

After reading customer notes regarding the same problem I was having I ordered A new Heater Element & a High Limit Thermostat. I also ordered a Heating Element Nut and Rubber Washer in case I needed them. It took me quite some time to remove the dishwasher from under my counter. Once the unit was out and prepared to service it actually took only a few minutes to install the new Heater Element. I did't need the washer or extra Nut. I also decided to try the unit without replacing the thermostat. I cleared the diagnostics by pressing the "HEATED DRY, "NORMAL", "HEATED DRY", "NORMAL" buttons. After the controller reset the dishwasher was ready to run.

Disconnected the power. Removed the dishwasher mount screws from under the counter. Slid the Dishwasher out. Removed the two wires. Loosened and removed the two heater support nuts. Removed the heater element from inside the dishwasher. Placed the new heater element inside. Tightened the nuts. Attached the wires. Pushed the dishwasher back in place. Replaced the under-counter support screws. Reset the diagnostics message on the dishwasher front panel (This may not be necessary for some) - (Press HI TEMP > AIR DRY > HI TEMP > AIR DRY). All works great. Thank you PartSelect.com for fast shipping and great pricing.
