Unsnapped clip,and moved it 90 degrees. Slip wheel and clip off. Installed clip on new wheel. replaced new wheel. The wheel did not come with a new clip and was not suggested on the parts list. The existing clip was still OK but if it was not, I would have had to order a clip and wait. All in all, a good experience.

The rear wheels were missing on the lower rack.

The wheels came with a clip on part that clipped to the rack and the wheel snapped into that clip. I am a woman and it was easy for me to do. Thanks to Parts Select for being an easy to use and navigate site, for quick shipment and for good directions with the parts. Sincerely, Teresa from Alabama.

wheel axles are defective - wheels fall off

  • Customer: Chris from Decatur GA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers
  • 76 of 139 people found this instruction helpful
The part indicated here is a new design to replace a defective part that fails to keep the wheels on the lower dish rack. So far, the new axles work fine. Removal/Replacement couldn't be easier - it is helpful to use needle-nose pliers to get the old axles out. The new ones just snap in. Wheels stay on just fine. The rack is designed to roll on 8 total wheels, 4 on each side.

Dish washer is not running through cycles

First and formost before you buy read everything in trouble shooting your dishwasher. Then you do not buy parts you do not need. First you turn off power, then water. Remove two screws, a rubber hose and a hard line by unscrewing if you are lucky some contractors might sweat this on. No biggie just two extra steps that's all. do in reverse to assemble...

Diswasher wasn't cleaning the dishs because the spray arms were clogged with calcium deposits.

  • Customer: Ric from Henderson NV
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 44 of 52 people found this instruction helpful
Replacement of the arms is very simple, the bottom arm pulls out after turning it counter clockwise, no tool needed. The upper arms need the use of a nut driver or simlar tool to remove the hex screws holding them to the water supply tubes. The hardest part of the repair will be removing the top dish tray. This requires twisting the door slide end retainers outward to remove them and then the dish tray will slide out allowing easy removal of the arm. The top arm is mounted the body of unit.
This problem would not have occurred if there was an inline filter on the cold side to filter out calcium (whole house filter). Another way to have corrected this without the purchase of parts would be to run the dishwasher on the rinse cycle 3 or 4 times using 1 cup of lime away on each rinse and also by removing the arms and soaking the arms in a 50/50 solution of water and lime away for 24 hours. This will break down the calicum and enable the arms to be cleaned using a garden hose. New parts however save time and labor in cleaning the arms, however the main drain and supply lines to the arms still need the rinsing prior to replacing the new parts.

soap door latch broken, wouldn't hold soap for later release in middle of cycle like it was supposed to.

  • Customer: James from Naperville IL
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

Turned off power to unit, 'cuz it has a solenoid lead to open the soap door.
Removed the phillips head screws that held the door together. The screw are located on the inside edge of the door, there are 10-12 of them.
Spearated the door shells carefully, trying not to disturb the location of the wiring in the middle of the door.

Found the 4 screws that hold the module assembly to the door from the inside, and removed them.
Popped the assembly out, cleaned the gasket-seat area and placed the new one in place.
Carefully tightened the 4 screws. It is easy to over-tighten them, so only turn them until you feel they are snug. Let the gasket do the work.
Attached the two solenoid control wires in the same positions they were in before they were removed from the old assembly.
Re-assembled the door halves, again taking care to not over-tighten the phillips-head screws. One got "spun" and I removed it and re-set it into some epoxy.
Returned power to the dishwasher, and stopped washing dishes by hand.
Note: the latch is now made with a plastic that is more dense, and likely will not fail as soon as the original one did. I think GE learned something about the durability of their component plastics since this was originally built.

Heating element rusted and cracked

The hardest part for me was pulling the dishwasher out from under the countertop. Once it is out all you have to do is disconnect the power (or power off the fuse going to the dishwasher) then look underneath the dishwasher and you will see where the two ends of the heating element come through. Disconnect the wires connected to the ends by simply sliding off the connector. Then remove the plastic "nuts" that screw onto the ends of the heating element by turning them counterclockwise counterclockwise. Once the nuts are removed you can reach inside the dishwasher and remove the old heating element and replace it with the new one. Then simply replace the plastic nuts and reconnect the wires and you are good to go.

It was easy as pie. The new wheels came with the new axles already attached, and the whole wheel just snapped onto the lower rack. I ordered 6 and they arrived quickly and attached within minutes, and the dishwasher actually works better now that the rack is raised properly. Thank you!

Dishwasher was not draining, water left in tub

  • Customer: Steven from Lompoc CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers
  • 31 of 34 people found this instruction helpful
The repair was very easy and went smoothly. Here's an overview of the steps I followed: I used a shop vac to remove as much water as possible from the dishwasher tub. I turned off the water supply to the dishwasher and then removed two screws that connect the dishwasher unit to the cabinet/counter top. I also removed two screws at the bottom of the dishwasher to remove the dishwasher's kickplate. After that I pulled the dishwasher out and uplugged the unit then tipped it on it's side to gain access to the pump assembly (it's at the bottom of the unit). The drain pump assembly was held in place by two screws and a metal band that connects the pump to the rubber/plastic drain area. Also there are two wire leads needed to be unplugged. I took a picture of the unit before removing anything so I could have a record of what it all looked like assembled. Then I took off the old pump and put on the new and put it all back together. Turned the water back on and ran a quick rinse and spin cycle and all was well! Dishwasher drained properly and there were no leaks. Easy and I saved a bit of money doing it myself.
