VERY simple---unscrewed three screws on the broken part (the little nubs that held on the bottom spinner were broken off), screwed the new one back in, re-attached the spinner.

I was VERY pleased with the customer service and quick shipping (ordered on Sunday night, the part was delivered Wednesday morning). I would definitely recommend this site to anyone, and would use it again. Five Stars!!!!

Much easier than I expected. The bottom of the door gasket simply pulled out and the new one slid back into the same spot without any issues. That gasket did not solve the problem. The unit continued to leak. We waited for the back ordered door gasket approximately 2 week to come in. Once it came in the process took about 10 minutes. The old gasket easily pulled out of it's groove around the door. That gasket was dried out and worn in several places. We fitted the new gasket in the groove, trimmed off the excess, closed the door and ran the dishwasher and had no leaks. The two gaskets definitely did the trick. This is an easy DIY for anyone and the parts were priced right!!

our spray arm came off and when it landed it landed on the heater which melted the ar,

Removed front cover. No instructions so I removed all the screws. Only the bottom 2 need to be removed(1 on each side) then push cover up to unlatch. Remove 2 wires and 6 screws. Replace soap dish unit. reinstall screws and wires. Replace front cover. The hardest part is the front cover.

First I removed the two screws that hold the dishwasher in place, I pulled out the dishwasher and on the bottom right located the leak. The two brass nuts that hold the heating element in place. The wires had been rusted to the element so I cut the wires (and later spliced them back together) and unscrewed the brass nuts. I ordered the part after finding them very easily on partselect.com and 2 days later screwed them back on to the dishwasher. Spliced the wires back together and put the dishwasher back in place.

Easy Fix.

Cap would not close

At first I wasn't sure; I thought I had to buy the inner panel of the door. Considering that I have to minimize expenses I made it a point to tackle the problem myself. I unscrewed the outter panel off the dishwasher door and located the dispenser from inside of the inner door panel.

I unplugged the old dispenser,which was damaged, unscrewed it from the panel and removed it. I cleaned any and all debris, dirt and soap scum it had accumilated over the short years we've owned it.

Finally; after I prepared the new dispenser for installation, I placed it in position screwed it in and plugged it in, which was slightly tricky because it is pretty snug against the inside door panel. Once installed, I got my older son, 15, to help me screw in the outside panel of the door, and as he held it I screwed it on the the inside panel.

I tested it with no dishes inside by pouring just a little detergent in the new dispenser, starting the dishwasher and I stuck around in case there were any leaks or any other possible disaster that could occur.

This was exactly one week ago and all is still well. By the way, the person who took my order, I believe her name was Joann, was great. She talked to me making certain I had the right part, which I was unsure of since the diagram on your site was not quite clear. On top of that; I didn't pay for overnight service, yet my part was at my door the next day. I was amazed at the quick service and delivery. Thanks Joann!!!

My daughter held the flashlight steady as a rock as I hooked not one, but two new hinges in place. Throughout the whole ordeal neither of us complained or lost our resolve. We conquered!

Replacing the part was easy. Just pop the old one out and pop the new one in. This item fixed my leaking door problem. The old arm had fallen against the heating element, which burned a hole through the end. Water was shooting out that hole and leaking under the bottom door seal. Replacing the door seal did not help, but replacing the arm fixed the leak.

Dishwasher leaking water on my hardwood floor

  • Customer: Gregory from Attleboro MA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Socket set
  • 2 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
I recently bought a vacation home in New Hampshire, and had a very detailed home inspection performed. The dishwasher unit was checked out to be in fine shape. Before moving in, I had all the hardwood floors refinished, including the kitchen, and everything looked great. After moving in and using the dishwasher twice, it developed a major leak coming from the bottom of the unit. "Here goes more money that I don't have, to hire an appliance repairman to fix this leak!" I decided to take the bottom kick panel off the dishwasher to see where the leak was coming from. It was coming from the the connection of the heater element at the bottom of the dishwasher. I found a brass nut had been cracked and wouldn't stay tight any more. I ordered the replacement nut from Partselect, RECEIVED IT THE NEXT DAY!!!!! using regular ground shipping, and installed the new nut using a socket set, and tested the unit. No more leaks!! Partselect saved me at least $150.00 on a service call for a $3.50 part. I'm not the handiest guy around, but even this was easy!
I also scored big points with the wife on my handyman repair! Thanks Partselect!
