  • Customer: William from Baltimore MD
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Wrench set
  • 3 of 4 people found this instruction helpful
Part replacement was easy enough. Unfortunalty the error still existed and I thought that the part was defective. In looking for hints on the internet, I located a prodedure to enter the dishwasher in diagnostic mode by pressing various buttons. This reset the error. It would have been nice if that process had been included with the part

Very easy repair !!! I ordered my heating element on a Friday , it was on my porch Saturday. I used the directions that Parts.com sent me . I also read everyones Installation instructions ..... Every step was very easy . I did watch a utube video , so I couldn't screw this repair up......... My wife had a new dishwasher picked out for $ 579.00 , my part was $29 dollars , savings $550 dollar ...... After the repair , I ran the dishwasher and the blinking clean lite took care of itself ... The water has never been this hot and dryers the dishes like it was a new dishwasher ...... My advice , read everyone's Installation instuctions and watch the utube video .....

I did not relize that the drain hose was in two parts. Naturally I ordered the wrong half. So after I relized my mistake, I re-ordered the correct part. Once the correct part was received the repair was easy and went well.

The green "Clean Light" was staying on after shutting down in the middle of the cycle. I put it in troubleshooting mode and found out it was the heating element.

First I identified the problem by checking the plug ends of the heater coil with an ohm meter. I quickly odered the part and when it arrived a few days later, I simply pulled off the electrical connectors, unscrewed the two bolts, removed the old/broken coil, put in the new coil and tightened down the nuts snuggly.
Nothing to it. I then had to reset the error code and it is working like new.

Repair was a "no brainer". Pulled out the old gasket, started the replacement of the new gasket in the lower right hand corner and worked all the way around the opening, then trimmed excess gasket of about 2" with a pair of scissors and I was done. Total time - less than 5 minutes.
