soap and rinse aid were not dispensing

I removed the front cover, which allowed access to the soap dispenser. You need a 1/4" driver set to unscrew the dispenser. I installed the new dispenser, and the dishwasher worked great. The inital problem of the soap door not opening, and the rinse aid not dispensing, was solved.

After removing the over-the-range unit (no small feat!) I had to figure out how to open the case (good puzzle!). Capacitor had already discharged, so it was very easy to reach in, pop the old fuse and install the new one! As per your advice, I found out I was a "28%-er"! Upon re-installation, the microwave "sprang to life"!! Thanks, "Part Select"!! I was already shopping around for a new machine! (Now if you could only tell me an easier way to re-mount this heavy beast over the stove!!!)

The lady in the Nova Scotia call center should get all the credit for being able to identify the part I needed from only the very limited information I was able to give her. Employee of the month for her. She also had such a great can do attitude. Lawence Baier

After researching online, I found that I needed the turntable drive coupling, part#PS993087. when I went to your site it showed the same part but the part number had changed but said it would fit my microwave. Well, I was really surprised and happy when the part I received 3 days after I placed the order, with normal shipping,fit perfectly and now my turn table in my microwave works. I have marked this site a a favorite and will use it I'm sure soon. Being a single women and having to figure out how to fix the things on a small buget, I'm learning a lot and have a lot of respect for men that know how to do all the repair stuff. Thanks so much, I have been able to mark this off my list of things to fix. Have a nice day. Cj- age, 58

Repair was a breeze. When I received the part the metal piece had been bent in shipment so I gently removed with a screwdriver and bent it back then gently placed metal piece back into place. Your customer service is "AWESOME" Shelley C was amazing. Its rare to find that kind of customer service these days. I have ALWAYS purchased Whirlpool appliances because of their dependability and will contine in the future!Thank you!

I called the repair/parts number to make sure I had correct parts and the young lady instructed me as to the size of the serving tray; within 48 hours we had the VERY carefully wrapped carton opened and back in the microwave, working perfectly. Thank you. We'll recommend you to our friends!
