Diagnosing the problem was made easy using the "8 things that could be wrong" if the dishwasher would not turn on in the "Instant Repairman" area. We were going to order the entire module replacement for $141. Then we saw the Q & A link that said the Bi-Metal Fuse had the highest percentage of repairs if exhibiting such symptoms as our machine exhibited. The price of the fuse was $25. WOW what a difference in price and yes, it did fix the problem. The help given through the "Instant Repairman" area of the website saved us from spending $141 when $25 fixed our problem. We have ordered several parts but didn't know about the the "Instant Repairman". We will never again NOT use it to diagnose a problem.

Upper Wash Arm Came Off

With a flat blade screwdriver, pry up gently on the Upper Rack Track, pull out the end caps, and remove the rack. Pull the Feed Tube down out of the clip in the ceiling, Install the Upper Wash Arm on the Feed Tube, insert the Push-In Screw from below and push the Screw Cover down from above to snap everything together.

I also replaced the Lower Spray Arm Seal. First remove the Lower Dish Rack then remove the Lower Spray Arm by grasping the Lower Spray Arm Support/Hub and twisting the arm counter-clockwise to unscrew it, Pull the arm and hub out, now twist the Rear Feed Cap clock-wise to dislodge the Feed Tube and disconnect the cap. The seal is underneath.

Very loud noises during cycle

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

The very first thing to do is watch the online video. That was the most helpful tool. Once we saw how it should be done. We removed the bottom plate and securing screws. Disconnected the water supply line, electric, waste line and pulled the unit on top of the tarp we set down. We then tuned the unit on its side, removed the old motor, greased the new gasket and re installed. The only problems we incurred were minor. The first being that there was still water in the waste line. That was a bit messy but able to deal with. The second was that the 3/8" nut driver was very difficult to get seated on the locking nut. My wife had to actually pull up on the plastic shield in order to insert the nut driver on the nut. Once that was done, it was a piece of cake. Saved ourselves over $700.00 with this repair. Thank you Parts Select.

I had to drill screw heads off then take vice grips to pull out screws......you have to be very carefull not to drill too deep and loose the plastic you need to hold new screws,,,At the cost of these replacement parts I would never do it again,,,,,,,,I would have been happy if the replacement racks were of better quality than the origional racks.

Dishes on top wrack were not getting clean

  • Customer: Carol from Wichita Falls TX
  • Difficulty: Really easy

I watched the top spinner arm in the dishwasher to see if it was turning. It was not. I figured the chopper assembly screen might be clogged, or the blade might have been stuck. I found the repair video from PartSelect on YouTube (it's also on the Chopper Assembly website) and followed the instructions. The chopper shaft was broken. I ordered the part, and thankfully it was on my doorstep the next day using standard shipping. Following the video's instructions, I had a working dishwasher again in about 15 minutes. Thanks.

The door switch did not allow for the dishwasher to reset after washing. It was an easy fix, just remove the top trim panel (6 screws) pull out the switches, replace and reassemble. Just be aware that there two switches two replace.

Spinner on top of Dishwasher fell off.

I loosened the one screw holding on the plastic that houses the tab that holds the spinner in place. Placed my finger between the plastic and pulled down slightly just enough to remove old tab. Place new tab which is small in the hole,you can actually feel it going in the right place. With your finger hold onto the tab and then snap spinner onto tab. Tighten screw back up. Make sure you cover bottom of dishwasher just in case the screw and new tab falls from your hand.

Noted leaking inlet valve, lookup a manual and called support. They advised to get part which costed 50 dollars. We got part within couple days. We saw you tube video as to how to do it. It was easy so was able to do within 1 hour after couple trips to Home Depot for getting plumbing tape and connector.

At first I thought something was jammed in the impeller, so I took it completely apart(gutted it). Put it back together and still the same. thought it could be the control panel or maybe the door switch. changed the door switch with a new from PartSelect and still the same.Took it apart again this time checked the motor and sure enough it was frozen.Took impeller off only to find motor shaft was corroded from water damage mechanical seal must have leaked. BAD quality control also found a loose rubber washer in the motor housing and the door handle hinge was broke in half. I'm sure it was shipped this way. Thanks for the speedy delivery and fair pricing. Chris
