Went online, searched my dishwasher name and model. Found "PartSelect" site, then typed in "Water Inlet" in the search area, (for specific part). My part, along with several awesome illustrations from all kinds of angles appeared like BAM!!! There it was, the very part which I held in my hand for comparison. Wow, was I thrilled! I ordered the part in just a couple of minutes, as I used my PayPal account. Shipping took 4 days. Regarding the repair, just kill the power to the dishwasher, remove the service panel (bottom), unscrew the two screws that secure the top of the dishwasher to the under side of the counter (anti-tip prevention) slide the dishwasher out from under the counter, loosen the nut to the valve and pull the service line (copper tube) out from the valve. Then unscrew the valve from the dishwasher chassis. Pop the wire from the valve and and secondary rubber hose, now the valve is free. Just install in reverse order.

After browsing the site and seeing that the problem could have been the thermostat, I uninstalled my dishwasher and found the burned lead like another poster had mentioned. It took roughly 15 minutes to uninstall the dishwasher, remove the bad thermostat, install the new thermostat, replaced the crimped lug and reinstall dishwasher.

I tried 2 parts: a tub gasket and a bottom gasket. Unfortunately neither worked and it looks like I'll be buying a new dishwasher. However, partselect's web site and install videos were awesome, and took all the unknowns/hesitation out of wanting to try to fix it myself. Thanks!!!

Leakikng around the motor

Removed dishwasher from under the counter. Tipped it onto the door to access the motor. The Bracket requires the use of a torque bit in the screwdriver. Removed the bradket and pulled out the motor. Replaced the O-rings and put on a new bracket. Reinstalled the dishwasher, but it still is leaking. Removed dishwasher and motor again. After a more thorough inspection, I noticed that the motor itself is leading through a weep hole inside the casing. The hole is located between the bracket and the dishwasher housing so it makes it appear to leak around the O-ring. Be sure to check the weep hole in the motor itself.

Water leak at bottom corners of door

Removed the old seal, which was a little stuck because of residue buildup from hard water. I used a pair of needle-nose pliers to get a grip on the old seal, then slid my finger underneath to separate the rest of the seal. Once removed, cleaned up the area and slid in the new seal which slotted in quite easily.

I pulled out the dishwasher to expose how the strike was attached. Unscrewed the 2 screws and found the part on your site. The part number had been changed. I ordered a new part and tracked with your easy to track delivery info. It arrived in 3 days. I attached my new part with 2 screws, slid the diswasher back in place. I am a happy camper! Thank you, Julia

Door Spring Failed on One Side

  • Customer: William from Brooklyn NY

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
This was a simple repair. Although only the right side spring failed, I purchased and installed new springs and linkage for both sides being that the unit is about 10 years old. After removing the 2 screws in the kick-plate and the 2 screws holding the dishwasher in place, I pulled the dishwasher out and replaced the springs and linkage within 15 minutes. The total job took me about 25-30 minutes in total including cleanup.
