I paid a repairman over $100 to tell me he could find nothing wrong with my leaking dishwasher (it didn't leak when he ran it). I narrowed down the problem to a missing water deflector, but decided to replace the door gasket as well. It took less than 5 minutes to do the job. The only tool I used was a pair of needle-nose pliers to grasp the old door gasket and get it coming out of the groove. Thanks PARTSELECT for super-fast shipping and a website that is easy to navigate. I'll be coming back, 'cause all of my appliances are getting some age on them!

I tried going online to get some diagnostic help and never found a site that had a step by step help plan. I then did a little reading on different sites, to eliminate and perhaps diagnose my problem I use epoxy to glue the impeller(which spun freely) to the screw and it held long enough for me to see how it worked. I surfed sites to find the least expensive drain and wash impeller kit. One site had a cheaper price but I chose Parts Select because of the shipping so the end result was the best results for me. I am not sure but the estimated time was 1.7 or 1.8 days delivery that I did not believe would happen. When I received the parts and did the repair my final time from ordering was less than a day and a half. I could not have done the job myself without the video because the parts were very different. My biggest obstacle, other than my ignorance, was some sort of chemical on the screw that would not allow me to loosen it. I used a dremel to cut the head off and then a torch to heat the stub so I could remove it. After I received the kit I saw a chemical on the screw threads so online research told me heat loosens the chemical. My dishwasher is around 25 years old,I have worked on it three times now and replacing the impeller was the most difficult task to date. Should it last and develop another problem I will go to parts select first and start my quest.

The motor was spinning freely and not pumping out the water.

We followed the excellent video until we couldn't remove the outlet impeller because the motor shaft was not being held by the failed impeller. We drilled small holes around the impeller shaft until we could break off the upper part of the pump shell. Then we could hold the motor shaft with a vice-grip pliers by squeezing the shaft of the remaing impeller piece. We then removed the retaining screw and the rest of the impeller. Then evrything went well by following the video. There was still a bit of doubt because we discarded more old parts then expected but the machine now works well and we see no leaks.

It was very easy. Just took the old brackets off, put on the new brackets, tightened the one screw on the upper spray arm and voila, the dishwasher was fixed!

The video was of great help. One area that gave me grief was placing the small part with points under the plastic mechanism in the door. I tried to push the points into the open slot. After watching the movie a few more times I was trying to put the part in backwards. A little more explanation at this point in the video would have been a tremendous help. Otherwise, thank you for the video.

My dishwasher started making a growling sound, and did not wash the dishes anymore.

My dishwasher quit working the week before Thanksgiving, and to say the least, my wife was quite concerned. I did not know what was wrong, until I found the info on this website, including a how to repair video. I watched the repair video on the website when I ordered the parts. Other than my wash arm being different from what was shown in the video, it went exactly as shown in the video. I'm glad that the video, and the bag with the parts told me that there are fewer parts than originally were installed on the original. The parts looked like they had been redesigned a little, and were easier to assemble. Overall, I will be getting any repair parts I need for other appliance repairs in the future from here. Thank you for making this experience as easy as it was.

Pump flow rate insufficient to drain tub completely

  • Customer: Jeffrey from Lewis NY
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I watched the video then followed the procedure accessing the impeller/grinder from inside the tub. Had I not watched it, I would have torn into it from the bottom by removing the motor, etc. with disastrous results. I was quite depressed when installation of the impeller kit did not resolve the problem. I remembered from the survey that 56% of problems were solved with this kit; BUT, another 24% found that the check valve on the discharge line was the problem. So I removed it and lo and behold, it was partially plugged with broken pieces from the old impeller. The 1 page sheet that comes with the kit is simply a diagram of the parts included, there are no instructions ---- watch the video!!! All said and done, my experience with PartSelect was first class. They are 5 Stars in every category and I would highly recommend them.

It was very easy to replace the part in the bottom basket of the dishwasher, it was easy to find the part on your website due to the great schematic visuals. Thank you, B. Arias

Old whirlpool soap dispenser latch wasn't working

  • Customer: John from Colorado Springs CO
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Bought a house and with it can an old whirlpool dishwasher in where the soap dispenser lid would latch, as the latch itself was gone. Ordered the latch from part select and used the installation video to switch the latch out. Only problem I came across was that the torx screws at top of he door were free spinning. Ended up using a flat head for leverage to finally get the screws out. Everything works perfectly for once.

You need a properly sized hex (Allen) wrench to get the screws out. Basically simple: remover bottom roller tray, unscrew large plastic holding bolt, remove lower spray arm, unscrew bolts (be sure the wrench is sized right or you might strip the heads), and replace gasket; then reverse procedure. Chances are if the gasket was bad, it will be very obvious (out of circular slot and stretched).
