No water pressure in upper or lower diswasher spray arm assemblies

  • Customer: Terry from Huntley IL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers

The Parts select video instructions for this part are pretty much spot on. The grinder assembly broke where it attached to the circulator pump impeller shaft. The screen became totally clogged and thus no water pressure to the diswasher spray arms. The only thing Id add would be to verify the circulator pump impeller is in good shape after removing the old grinder assembly and that you are able to rotate it by hand in case the impeller motor itself is seized or the impeller is jammed. Once the grinder assy was replaced good water pressure and cleans like a champ.

Many thanks for the repair instructions. My dishwasher has a black plastic cover over the control board but it was easily removed. I did take a photo of the board before I started to use as a reference in putting thing back correctly. Being 70 and never having done anything of this type I was nervous but the machine was broken anyway so what harm could I do. It WORKS...

My dish washer is a under the counter type.On mine there are two screws that screw into the bottom of the counter frame,these are located inside when you open up the door, they will be right on the inside and to the very front of the upper part of the door opening. Remove both screws. Now,be slow and start to pull the unit out from under the counter. Make sure you don't scrastch your floor,you may use a towel.If your dish washer's discharge hose is conected under the sink, go ahead and remove it. If your unit can be unpluged, unplug it. If not throw the breaker.Try to turn your unit on' if it does you still have power still on. Try again.With the unit pulled out so you can see the back, lay on your side and look for to long looking plastic nuts with a wire coming out of them. These nuts are holding your eleament in place.Unscrew both nuts and let them slide down the wires. Pull both of the wires off the eleament.now reach inside and remove the old eleament.Put new eleamen in place, reconect wires and tighten the nuts,caustion not to tighten nuts to tight.Ok hook the hose and eleectric back up,push the unit under the cabanet, and install the two screws.Really hopes this helps.

AWESOME & EASY

This was one of the easiest repair jobs I've done. The only reason it took over 15 minutes was because when I put the front cover back on I did not line up one side properly and had to take it off again. No big deal. This replacement part truly is just a plug and play replacement. AWESOME!

Original intake valve broke (cracked plastic seem) due to ice built up due to leaked cold air into the house.

Follow instructional video from Part Select. Dishwasher is working nicely now. Many thanks. I must add that repair company wanted $480 for parts and labor to replace this and that, including motor. I declined and spent $46 for valve and S&H from Part Select and fixed it myself.

Frozen water inlet valve that burst

  • Customer: Don from LaGrange KY
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers, Wrench set

Removed the old valve after disconnecting the drain, water line and electric connection to get to the spot of the leak. Valve was easy to reinstall to power and filler tube, as were the hard connection to power and the drain, but when it came to aligning the copper water line to the valve with a compression fitting under the machine, it was impossible to get the alignment correct with the fine threads on the compression fitting. I loosened the valve from the frame and then was easily able to thread the compression fitting to the valve and then put the holding screw on the valve back in place. That knowledge would have saved me half the installation time and a lot of frustration trying to get the compression fitting to thread!

Dishes not clean on top rack. Very little water spraying.

I followed the "Installation Video for Chopper Assembly". No problems except chopper cover was hard to remove. Be careful to install new part with gear engaged and screen correctly inserted in grove. See my pic of old clogged screen/broken chopper.

Top Spinner fell off during wash cycle

Read comments on-line here. Then removed both drawers, removed one screw from top filler tube. Gently pulled tube down just enough to remove small "button", after first putting a cloth over entire bottom of dishwasher to catch it if it, or screw, fell. Button goes in "pointy side" down. Squeezed new spinner onto button until it "popped" on. Replaced top screw, drawers and ran a load. Worked perfectly. Button was worn out. Would be nice if only button could be purchased.

Turn off power at breaker. Mine on same breaker as disposal. Removed the twelve torx head screws from inside of door (see the video on replacing the bi-metal fuse). Removed fuse from board, then removed spade connectors to test fuse with multimeter. Blown. Board is snapped in place. Remove the two plugs from the front side of board, the four plugs from the bottom and the ribbon cable. Used a screwdriver to gently bend clips holding board in place at the ribbon cable end of the board and lift out. Examination showed burned area around pin P4, the door neutral pin. Installed new board, re-connected all wires and ribbon cable. Installed new bi-metal fuse just like in video, reassembled door. Turned breaker on, ran normal cycle. Perfect. Wife thinks I'm a genius. Partselect saved me hundreds.

I removed the 8 torx screws on the inside of the panel. I then removed the old dented panel and put the new one in its place. Finally, I reinstalled the 8 torx screws. The new panel arrived quickly and in perfect shape. Very quick and easy from placing the order, shipping and install. Thank you PartSelect!

Googled the problem. Found a really good video about how to fix it. Ordered the part from PartSelect and it came in a couple of days. Son and I fixed it and had it up and going in a little more than an hour. The biggest problem was getting it disconnected from the water, drain and power and then hooking it back up. Old fat guys don't do well lying on the floor with their head under the sink - was why I needed son. Works now just like brand new. I highly recommend PartSelect! Don't know what it would have costs to get a repairman to do it but figured our labor saved us a couple hundred $. Yea!
