Easiest repair ever. The spray arm itself usually really is not the problem, it usually is the clip or gasket that holds the spray arm on. It wears out. This part is perfect for it supplies a new spray arm, nut and gasket/clip. I think it wears out due to a build up on the arm that puts too much pressure on the clip/gasket. Remember when taking the nut off, if you are standing above the unit with your arm inside, you turn the nut clockwise while looking down. Good luck.

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

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!

*Shut off power to dishwasher at circuit breaker (hot water supply had already been shut off under sink since inlet valve was broken and was allowing water to run into washer nonstop)

*Removed front lower panel from dishwasher

*Removed valve assembly from dishwasher frame

*Disconnected wiring harness from valve

*Disconnected incoming water line from valve

*Disconnected outgoing flexible water line from valve

It was a pretty easy installation other than the small work area under the dishwasher.

dishwasher was leaking onto the floor

  • Customer: Mary Jane from Niles MI
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

We received the part in just a day or two so thank you for quick delivery. The base of the dishwasher door was leaking...not the actual gasket but a long strip at the base of the door had separated. With the help of a talented neighbor, my husband and our good neighbor pulled the dishwasher out from its installed place, took off the door and found a screw which needed a star-shaped screwdriver. Fortinately another neighbor had just the right tool....so screw was removed, old strip pulled out, new strip slid into place, door re-attached, dishwasher shoved back into place and anchored as though everyone knew what they wre doing! It works fine now....a small leak continued the first few washings but all is perfect now. We hope it lasts....and lasts.....and lasts! Thanks. Happy Wife

I had to remove the dishwasher from under the counter, flip it on it's side to gain access to the discharge hose attachment point, removeit, remove the other end of the hose from the sink-side and replace the hose. The sink-end of the hose has a 'collar' that must be cut to fit the fitting on the sink.

Located where the dishwasher was leaking from and by referencing the parts catalog determined that it was the water valve. I ordered the part from Parts select and replaced the part when it arrived. Replacing the part was very easy and I now have a working dishwasher again.

Very simple repair - in my case part of the upper spray arm broke off, leaving the threaded portion still in the dishwasher. Just unscrewed the remaining broken part, and screwed back in the new part.

First of all, I got the part 24 hours after I ordered it. That in it self was a feat. Second, I followed everyone elses instructions, pulled the old gasket out with a pair of needle nose pliers, cleaned the area as good as I could, found the notch for the slot on the gasket to slide into and viola...it slid in and stayed in. No more leakage whatsoever! Thanks for all of the tips!

All you have to do power down the unit, then disconnect the power connections at the element and remove the old nuts and replace them with the new ones and tighten. Don't tighten too much, the element has a rubber seal that just needs the nut to snug it up.
