Our Kitchen Aid dishwasher was not getting the dishes clean so I went on line looking for a fix that did not include replacing the dishwasher. Found the Parts Select website, read a few of the comments and ordered the pump / motor assembly. Following the steps of others, I turned off the dishwasher at the breaker panel and disconnected the power. I found it easier to disconnect the water feed and drain under the sink rather than under the dishwasher. The dishwasher was held in place with 2 screws at the top, It came out easily. Warning: have towels handy as the water in the drain, inlet and housing will come out with the removal of the dishwasher. I did have to remove the upper spray assembly, easy, to remove the motor / pump assy. the assembly is held in by three plastic clips. When these are removed, the assembly pulls out through the inside of the dishwasher. Replacement was simple, just reverse the steps in removal. Be careful to center the pump / motor assembly. Having done this once, I would probably leave the dishwasher in place and change out the pump / motor assembly.

a green light was blinking above the "heated dry" button. It wouldn't go off and I could not restart the dishwasher. I took it that this meant that I should replace the electronic copntrol card . I did and it worked.

I followed the directions already on your site. They worked perfectly. It was easy. The only trick was that I needed a Starz driver bit to remove the screws holding the panel in place. Luckily I had the right one.

Reviewed info from prior users and sat down with a cup of hot coffee to review needs. Found it easy to strip out old door gasket. Compared it to the new gasket and made sure i understood which side went into the channel.Then cleaned up that channel with soap and rinsed and dried it carefully. Installed new gasket in just a few more minutes. Did not need the new strike plate. And as part of the cleanup and test I added 2 cups of vinegar which removed some of the build up of calcium deposits. I'll do that again another time or two until it cleans it all out. Voila, dry floor and a happy family! Many thanks, Dave

Dishwasher made loud noise and leaked a lot of water

  • Customer: Bill from Greenville SC
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Wrench(Adjustable)

Replaced the Pump Motor and Housing Assembly. Generally the video did very well in showing what to do. However, it underrated the difficulty of getting the assembly to fit properly and seal in place. The clamps to secure it were difficult, but eventually got it through about 5 repeated attempts. Now after first us, it is working well.

Watched the videos on Parts Select and one or two on other sites to get an idea how difficult the repair was. Ordered the part (circulation pump motor). I waited until I had the time to do the repair and a couple of extra hours just in case (ignore Murphy's Law at your own peril). The most time consuming parts were removing the connections (water supply and drain pipe) and dishwasher from the cabinet. Changing the motor was easy but make sure you have a nut driver with a long shank (8" or longer) to reach the nut holding the motor in place. After the repair, replacing the connections, and moving the dishwasher back into the cabinet, I left the kick plate off and ran the dishwasher to make sure the connections were water tight. Success. Dishwasher purrs like a kitten.

After touching the start button the washer display panel would go blank.

After recieving my Electronic Control Board from Parts Select, turned off power supply in breaker panel and verified. Opened washer door and removed approx. six torx head screws from top back panel. Removed control board cover, disconnected wiring plug ins, removed and replaced board. Re-connected wiring ( all simple ) and fastend cover over board and remounted panel and tightend. Turned on power breaker, hit start and unit works like a charm. Best fix ever, would recommend to anyone!! Made wife Happy-Happy-Happy.....

stopped mid-cycle & had no power

I am a beginner level do it yourselfer who wasn't about to pay for a service call on my 5 yr old dishwasher. I figured i'd need that money to put towards a new one. But the website showed that the fuse fixed the problem over 50% of the time, and was less than $20 so I figured it was worth a try. (I had to return an item to part select before and it was hassle free - just had to pay shipping - so I knew I could return it if the fuse didn't fix the problem.) I was able to follow their online instructions & repair video to remove the old fuse and had my dad use his voltage tester which showed it wasnt passing any current. So I ordered the new fuse and was pleasantly surprised when it came earlier then expexted. It took me longer to find the right screwdriver than it took to install the new fuse. I normally shy away from any type of electrical work, but it really was very easy to replace. And once I got it put back together and turned the breaker back on, it picked up right in the middle of the cycle it had been on when it stopped working. So glad i checked partselect before going out to buy a new dishwasher!

Replaced water inlet valve. Very easy repair. Just disconnected two water lines, an electrical plug, and two mounting screws. Then reversed the order with the new valve.

Read this entire instruction before starting. The old gasket is pressed into a slot, so to remove the old one simply requires that you grab one end and pull it out, but first only pull a few inches of the gasket so that you can note its orientation in the slot since the gasket is not symmetrical. Now remove the old gasket and wipe the slot and surrounding surface clean of any detergent residue with a damp sponge. Next, start the new gasket at BOTH ends (ensure that they start at the same location as the old one) and press the new gasket lightly into the slot, working your way all the way around. Ensure that it is even and partially seated. There will be no extra length so if you have any slack, you have the gasket stretched. DO NOT cut or trim the gasket. Once everything is partially pressed in place and even, go back and press the gasket firmly into the slot. When complete, the door will need to be closed/latched with slightly higher pressure than normal the first few times but after a few cycles, the gasket will be fully seated and the door will close normally. Some versions of this dishwasher may need the strike replaced but this particular one did not.
