After figuring out the problem wasn't the water inlet switch, I replaced the switch assembly for the water level float. Cut off supply water to dishwasher, removed the 2 screws holding switch assembly, and installed new switch. 15 minutes, very easy job.

Place spray arm into receptacle. Take nut and screw on being careful not to over tighten. This will strip the spray arm and the same problem will occur. Easy fix!

Dishwasher wouldn't start, then became stuck in a cycle.

Pull the control knob straight out. Remove the screws along the top of the door, and the top two along the side near the top. The whole control panel will then fall away.

Unplug the old plug by squeezing the tabs and pulling.

Remove the two short screws that hold the control board to the plastic panel. After that, the board is still tightly held in place by a series of snaps around the perimeter. Most come free with a little work with a flathead screwdriver. The tough ones are underneath -- flip the whole plastic panel over to find an access for those.

Snap the new controller in place, install the two screws. Plug the wires back in (it is keyed and will only plug in the correct way). Put all the screws back in and you're ready to test.

The very first test I ran did not go well -- the dishwasher thought it was full of water when it wasn't. You may need to cancel the first cycle and start a fresh new cycle.

I foloowed the others who repared the same item. I really appreciated their help and input. The only thing I would add is when they said that you only have to remove the bottom 2 screws on the inside of the dishwasher door they are absolutely correct. But don't look on the very bottom of the door like I did. They are on the inside of the door, facing inside. The bottom screw on each side. Thanks for all the help.

1. Bottom door gasket removed very easy by grabbing left corning and pulling out. Starting with notch on right side, slide the hard plastic side up at a slight angle to catch the slot the gasket will seat in. Slowly moving toward the left, push gasket into seated position. Notch in gasket will make sure it is in correct position. Push gasket all the way in so that it is flush with bottom edge of door. Watch when first sliding gasket in, it has to g at a slight up angle or it will fall into an empty space.
2. Remove Tub gasket by gripping one side and pulling out. Replace in same fashion making sure the angled wedge of gasket is first part that lays flat in slot. Working from one side to the other, make sure the gasket seats completely. Trim excess if necessary.

Broke nubs off of stem when cleaning

  • Customer: Glen from Chicago IL
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 7 of 7 people found this instruction helpful
I took the bottom parts out. This can basically be done without tools. You need a phillips to unscrew 3 screws to remove the stem. Then easily replace with the new one. Putting the spiny washing part was kinda weird because I was afraid to break the nubs off again. I took the whole bottom carriage out so I could see better, pushed down kinda hard and twisted the right way (figure out which way needs to be twisted before hand by looking through the bottom of the stem).

Dishwasher wouldn't drain after cycles.

  • Customer: Thomas from Bismarck ND
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

This was too easy. I pulled out the bottom rack, spread apart the two clips which are at the bottom of the spray arm with my fingers and pulled out the old broken spray arm. The damage was visible. Then I took the new spray arm ( which looked different but still fit nicely) and gently pushed it into place. Done!

All I had to do was take out old racks and replace with new ones. However the top rack did require taking off the part where the water runs through, it was easy though.

I would like to comment on how quickly and efficiently the parts arrived. I placed my order on a monday morning and am pleased to report by tuesday afternoon they arrived, much to my delight.

Unplugged dishwasher, removed the 2 wires clipped to the heating element, removed both cracked nuts, replaced with new nuts from PartSelect, clipped on wires, plugged in and did a test cycle. Based upon service quote from Best Buy, I saved myself $125.00 for just the call out, not including parts and labor.

Dishwasher Leakibng

  • Tools Required: Pliers, Wrench(Adjustable)

Removed the bottom covering on dishwasher and then ran it to figure out where the leak was coming from. Noticed it was dripping off hose, but not actually leaking from hose.

Unplugged dishwasher and slid it out from cabinet area (be sure to turn off and disconnect water supply)

Followed delivery tube up side of dishwasher to top of tub and noticed reminents of where water ran down side of tub.

Loosened delivery tube by plastic nut inside of tube and removed. Noticed gasket was partially depleted.

Ordered new gasket, replaced and put everything back together. (Be sure to use teflon tape on water source fitting and tighten firmly). No leaks

No Water Circulating in Wash or Rinse Cycle

  • Customer: Rod from Bandon OR
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

  • 7 of 8 people found this instruction helpful
Removed the dishwasher from under the counter, and ran to diagnose the problem. Drain pump ran, but circulating motor did not. Ordered the replacement circ pump / motor assy, and slid the washer back in its hole.
When the new motor arrived, I slid it back out, disconnected everything, and drained the water from the bottom. Then I tipped the washer on its side, removed the old motor and installed the new one following included instructions. I did have to use the new wiring harness, and found the new one had only two leads where the original had three. I connected the blue and white leads, and left the original green loose.
All in all, it was an easy repair that could be done by anyone with a basic set of skills.
