After selecting and ordering the correct parts from the diagram and parts list provided on the website, I viewed the online video and quickly repaired the dishwasher. I put a few dishes in for a test and the unit worked perfectly. I also observed a few tips that were offered such as replacing the spray arm seal and wash arm bearing ring, and tightening the screws on the main wash unit. The PartSelect website was truly a Godsend. I was actually contemplating replacing the entire dishwasher or calling a repairman before I found the website via a Google search for my more than 20 year old dishwasher. In either case, it would have cost me a lot more than doing it myself. The purchase process by phone was outstanding - the customer service representative was very knowledgeable and careful about making certain I was getting exactly what I needed. I added 2-Day shipping, which was less than $15.00 and with three parts, the entire order was less than $25.00, including shipping. And I had the parts on my porch in two days. PartSelect is awesome!!!! And it will be the first place I go for future appliance repairs.

Dishwasher grinding noise

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Socket set, Wrench (Adjustable)

Heard a grinding noise in our dishwasher one night recently while it was in the drain mode. Water wasn't draining out so I had to siphon it out with a tube, cup, and rags, then looked up information about the washer/dryer on the internet and found PartsSelect. I watched the repair video they provided and decided to give the repair a try. I began to remove all the necessary parts following the instructional video.
The hardest part of the job came early on, and once that was completed the rest of the job was a cinch. The center screw holding the upper impeller was the hardest part to remove. I tried to use the adjustable wrench on the hex shaped nut molded to the impeller while turning the screw, but that old screw was so tight I was afraid I'd strip the molded impeller nut.
I then tried a 1 inch nut without the driver attached to it but with a pair of vice grips clamped at about 45 degree angle on the 1 inch nut and set on the molded impeller nut while at the same time trying to remove the screw by putting the small nut driver through the top of the 1 inch nut and turning it. No luck there either. It would not budge.
By this time I was entertaining the idea of buying a new 5 to 800.00 dishwasher.
Well I had nothing else to lose except 5 to $800.00, so I reverted to caveman technology.
I ended up using a small chisel and wood mallet to get the impeller off the shaft. Since the impeller is made of a rubber like material, it came off easily in pieces using some careful strikes with the hammer on the impellers molded nut. When this was complete, I unscrewed and removed the filter housing.
The impeller screw, which was still in the motor shaft, and was removed 'after' this because there was no impeller or filter chamber in the way. There was a small space between the screw and the motor shaft since the impeller was removed from around that screw so I first tightened it a little bit, then finally was able to loosen the screw. You would think that screw had been super glued into that shaft but it finally came out. After that I removed the chopper blade and found that the spring attached to it was bent and had tore the shaft of the 'lower' drain impeller to pieces. After cleaning up the impeller pieces I ordered the drain and wash impeller kit from PartSellect. It arrived in a couple of days and the new parts installation went quickly.I was especiially relieved that the new screw and impeller went on without a hitch.
I didn't use the new shaft seal provided because it was a different height then the original seal and wouldn't allow the cover to the drain impeller to seat properly. The height of the new seal also caused the new drain impeller to push or spring up too high.The original seal looked fine so I used that and it worked just fine also. Started the dishwasher up for a test and it all worked flawlessly. No noise no leaks. This was my first washer dryer repair. Following the Part Sellect instructional video with Steve explaining while doing the removal of old and installation of the new parts was a breeze. SO, here's my conclusion. Folks, for under $50.00 I saved a lot of money and expect that I'll get at least a few years more use from this old dishwasher. Thanks again to PartSelect and Steve for your help.

Dishwasher wouldn't drain

  • Customer: Roy from Powell, OH
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

Turn off the breaker to the dishwasher - there will be water very near the motor and other electrical components. I first scooped and towelled all the water out of the bottom of the dishwasher. The drain valve can be accessed from the bottom front of the dishwasher without pulling the unit out from under the counter. There were 4 screws to remove the 2 bottom metal panels. Next use pliers to loosen and slide back the hose clamp connected to the drain. Have a towel ready and pull the drain hose off the white check valve. The check valve can then be removed by unscrewing it - you may need to use pliers. Put the new one on and everything back together.

Dishes not clean and soap dispenser not completely rinsed out.

I looked in the bottom of the dishwasher after browsing the website regarding possible solutions. When I removed the bottom spray arm I noticed three screws missing from the pump housing. The loose pump outlet had allowed the seal to push out. Ordered-Normal shipping on the part.

I followed the video's from Parts Select and it took me less than 3 minutes to replace these parts. I did find it easier to use a screwdriver to lift the u shape of the spring over the detergent cup as the pliers tended to pull on the spring too much. Couldn't have been easier or faster, awesome!

Thee dishwasher came apart very easy, had no problems. Found out where it was leaking around the seal. Ordered parts and they arrived very promptly. Had a few little glitches when I was putting it back together. One of the screws stripped and a larger screw solved the problem. I have a lot of patience, so it worked out fine. Bob.

After reviewing the troubleshooting tips for this model I ordered in the Wash Arm bearing ring and the spray arm seal. The old ones I removed didn't appear broken, but when I replaced them all the noises went away. Simple (couldn't be simpler) inexpensive (about $10.00) repair.
