Hole in top of hose caused water to leak

  • Customer: Harry from Chicago IL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Socket set

First, I unscrewed the bottom panels and then I unscrewed the two screws that secure the dishwasher to the counter. I would advise one to unplug the machine first, but I couldn't find where the unit is plugged in, so I fixed it while it was connected to power. Then I pulled the dishwasher out far enough that I could access the hose located on the left side. Then I unscrewed two screws which secure the upper spray arm, and removed the top part of the broken hose. I learned the hard way that I should have removed as much water as possible prior to making the repair. So water started coming out of the hose. I proceeded to drain the machine via the hose into a bucket. The hardest part of the repair was accessing the screw that fastens the lower part of the hose to the pump--I'm assuming it's the pump(?). Getting the top part of the hose through the hole took a little effort, but the rest was easy. I was amazed at how quickly PartSelect got me the part: early on the day after I ordered and I did not pay for overnight shipping!

Leaking water

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set, Wrench set

Most difficult part of repair was getting dishwasher out and in under the cabinet. Especially, feeding the copper water line from under the sink and then back while trying to align the connection. Installing the part itself was easy with good instruction for taking it off and reinstalling. However, since the motor had been upgraded, it required new connections. The connections were provided for this, but no instructions for the electrical connections.

This was a 45 min project. New pump was a redesign. Match your style with the instruction sheet. ( pictures are upside down) Install drain on pump. Remove wirng connectors(3) and hanger. Raemove in/out pump clamps, and remove pump. Reverse procedure( I had to bend the new hanger to fit). When I first fired it up, nothing happened for about 5 min. Then water got into the pump and it started working. Quieter, more powerful spray. Grabbed a beer.

Incomplete cleaning / standing water / drain failure

  • Customer: John from mars PA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers

There is sufficient clearance to remove the motor and pump from under the dishwasher after removal of the front lower panels. This avoids the inconvenience of moving the dishwasher. Some ouch work required to remove some of the fittings as sight lines are obstructed - use a mirror to help. Installation is easier as all but one of the hose and pump clamps can be installed with the screw heads accessible from the front. Only installation issue was that the mounting holes on the pump body for the ground wires and the support piece had been drilled but no screw threads had been cut. Two minutes work with a tap solved the problem. One suggestion is to run a couple of loads before replacing the front cover to check for leaks. I did find one after the second load.

Leaking Dishwasher

Replacing the two corner baffles was the third attempt to stopping the leak. I first replaced the door seal without removing the inner door and the leak did not stop. Then I removed the inner door, reinstalled the door along the bottom and added the small seal required at the lower center portion which is separate than the longer door seal. Still leaked! Then I replaced the corner baffles and alas., the leak stopped. I would recommend that all seals be replaced at the same time. Total cost about $40.00 and can easily be done in one hour or less. I ordered the parts And they arrived remarkably in les than 24 House with regular delivery. Very pleased with Parts Select instructions and service!

Really simple. Remove old corner baffles by just lifting out and replace with new. Close door to insure the door seal aligns with the new baffles and good to go.

When I first noticed my unit leaking I noted that the leak was dripping right in the middle. So, I went straight to this web site with my model number and the 1st part I saw was for a Gasket Insert which is a small piece that completes the sea. I received that part in 2 day and did the repair and I still had leakage. I went back on the web site and looked further and came across info for the Corner Tub Baffles. I did not even know there were there. I removed mine and it was very obvious that the original Baffles were very worn and wrapped. In addition, the unit was quite filthy. I ordered the two replacement baffles. The parts arrived in two days, did the minor repair and now I have no leaks.

First open the door and look at the corner tub baffles. They are in the bottom corners where the door seals with the tub and they look alike. Remove and replace one at a time making note of the orientation. Make sure they are firmly seated in the bottom and close the door and enjoy.

water leak from underneath the unit

  • Customer: ANTHONY from NEW EGYPT NJ
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

After shutting off the water and switching off the electric, I removed the lower panels and disconnected both. I then pulled the unit out and set it on its back. I removed the related hoses and moved the pump to the side. Using a 2" X 6" piece of PVC pipe, I removed the wash arm rubber connector which had a small slit in it and installed the new one with the PVC pipe. After reconnecting the hoses and reversing the process, I powered up the unit resulting in another successful repair with the help of Parts Select.com.

I ordered the corner baffles and installed them in the corners in just minutes. Repair company quoted me about $100 if they had the parts on the truck. If they had to come back it would be another service call. Did the repairs my self for $24 with shipping charges. Happy Customer

Small trail of water leaking from bottom of door.

After examining the lower baffles, it was evident that their grooves were bent out of shape and warn. They were simple to pop out, I cleaned the area and popped in the new baffles. Unfortunately, the leak still happened. Upon further examination, the corners of the gaskets where they rubbed against the baffles also looked worn. So I ordered a replacement gasket and gasket insert and just installed them. Problem solved. The instructional videos were exceptionally clear. I'm not particularly handy. If I had not seen the videos online before ordering the parts, I would have called a repair service and spent $150+ more.

Opened the front door, replaced the right and left rubber baffles, which you just set in place, and replaced a missing wheel on the lower rack. Closed the door and ran the dishwasher through it's cycle, no more leaks!
