Pulled everything out the front, and dug down to find a thrashed chopper assembly (like a little garbage disposal). The previous owner just tossed anything in; pop tops, plastic cutlery, etc.
Didn't pay attention to the exact installation of the chopper as I pulled it out, but, it turns out that it only goes in one way.
Used pictures and instructions I found online as a guide and didn't have any issues.
Replaced the check valve because it isn't expensive and I was in the neighborhood.

Latch on dispenser cracked so it did not close properly.

  • Customer: Robert from Califon NJ

Took me longer to find my tools than to do the repair. DId have to call the PartSelect 800 # while making repair but woman there read to me a note in their system about a redesign of the replacement part that explained exactly my question. She was VERY helpful. I will not be calling the appliance repairman again!

Dishwasher wouldn't heat water or dry dishes

  • Customer: Philip from Sugar Land TX
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Wrench set

Disconnected the power and hot water supply.
Removed mounting screws under the counter, and the lower panel screws to expose the leveling screws.
Backed the leveling screws up so that the unit would slide out more easily
Walked the unit out to where I could reach the back side.
Disconnected the two power wires from the heater coil (slide off)
Unscrewed the plastic nuts holding the heater in place and removed the heater coil.
Replaced the heater coil and nuts.
Reversed the process above to install.

Dishwasher wouldn't drain; pump drain impeller had come off drive shaft.

Replaced the pump drain as one complete assembly. Couldn't do it from under the front panel as there is a small lug that you have to depress on the top of the assembly before you can twist the assembly counter-clockwise by hand. I tried but I couln't get the leverage. Had to take dishwasher out from under the unit and tip it on its side. The rest was very straightforward. If you can remove the dishwasher from under the unit easily I would suggest you don't even bother trying to change the pump drain while the dishwasher is in place. It's not worth the hassle.

front seal on the old pump failed causing the front bearing to get wet repeatedly and fail

Removed required hardware and dishwasher from undercounter mount. Turned dishwasher on its front and removed the old motor. Installed the new motor and tested for function. Installed once test was successful.

motor making a load noise

  • Customer: Kenneth from Houston TX
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 5 of 6 people found this instruction helpful
pull out the dishwasher
lay it on its side
use a 1/4" drive socket with extension and a universal joint to undo the the hidden bolt,
twist the motor 1/4 turn. this is the hard part you have to pull fairly hard and rock the motor around a little to get the o-ring to let the motor slide out.
lube up the new motor with jet dry or soap and insert back it, turn it back 1/4 turn, install the bolt and plug the motor control wires back in, then reinstall it back under the counter

would not go thru cycle(s)

  • Difficulty: Easy

Unscrewed door, removed cover , and removed control panel; the only tricky part of the repair. It slid out by moving it in the opposite direction than it appeared! Once I realized which way it came out, the wiring modules were easily snapped in place; the I just put it all back in reverse order. If I knew how to snap the panel out it would be a 5 minute job.

A warrantied replacement would have cost more; how much depends on how much time a repairperson would "clock".

Coating on the rack has worn exposing the metal underneath

There were no instructions with the part, but looking at the old rack it was simple to see how the parts should be assembled. Took the center part from the old rack, twisted off, and applied it to the center of the new rack. Snapped on the wheels and was done. Very simple assembly.

I read online about a few other people who had the blinking light problem. Suggestions were to press a series of other buttons in sequence. Didn't work. I went to the advice website and paid $24 to be told it was the control board. I ordered a control board. As I was preparing to install it, I noticed a black spot on the ribbon connector that was across two of the printed (?) flat wires. I gently scraped it off. It was shorting the two flat wires. I put it all back together with the old board, and all is working well. It's been a week.

The unit had power, but would not start

Removed the front control panel and control unit cover. Removed and disconected old control panel and installed the new panel. Very easy project, even though I didn't know what I was doing. Unfortunately this was not the problem. I had to also replace the heater element and Hi-Temp thermostat. Also easy replacements. The "Just Ask" option is well worth the money. It was a great help in diagnosing the problem.

The motor was too loud

I took the unit apart to find out what was making the loud noise and found the seal on the main pump had been leaking ito the bearing on the motor.
