The top sprayer with the rubber tube that attaches to the back wall had over age stung tiny leaks. When u pushed in the top tray the rubber tube would not seal tight.

I ordered the kit that included a new water sprayer. I took apart the old parts and watched carefully how each part went together and did so with the new kit. It was so easy and took less then 15 mins. I was very proud of myself. I have started to fix things around my home instead of calling repair people and finding it's not hard at all if u just use common sense. I just finished redoing my main bathroom and plumbed everything. I also put a new deadbolt on my front door.

Watched your video and replaced seal in approx. 5 minutes, probably less. Still leaked so I looked at your page for solutions, found out where the air vent was and pried it open, very disgusting mess. With screw driver and long tweezers dug out what I could then poured a mixture of bleach and water in the vent. Totally cleaned it, very white, vent cover went into a bucket of bleach and hot water and it cleaned very well. Put vent cover back on and did a load of dishes, works fine. Thank you for having such a great website, if I ever need help again I will be back. It's a shame someone didn't tell you about cleaning the air vent when you bought the dishwasher.

My dishwasher was not getting the dishes clean. I decided the spray arm may not be moving freely. I tried spinning it a few times and although it would spin a little, it was wobbly. I removed it and, by comparing with my owners manual, discovered the Spray Arm Seal was completely missing. I do not know why. Regardless, I found one on PartsDirect.com. I also ordered the Wash Arm Bearing Ring b/c I figured the old one might be worn. Wow! I'm glad I did. When I got the new one and compared the two you could really tell a difference. After installing these two parts, the dishwasher works like new again. This was much cheaper than calling a repairman or buying a new dishwasher!

Replaced the door gasket but still leaking. My fault, I should have checked further before ordering a gasket. The leak was in the pump. 11 years old, time for a new washer.

Dishwasher leaking in lower front door area

Removed and installed new door gasket which I found to be a simple task. Ran dishwasher and it still leaked. I then looked at other repairs submitted by your customers with the same problem. One had mentioned removing the lower spray arm and checking the screws around the pump. Sure enough, 2 screws were nearly ready to fall out and all others were loose. Tightened those, reinstalled spray arm, ran the dishwasher and no leaks. A big "Thanks" to you and also to other customers for sharing both their problem and how they were able to fix it. It sure saved me some money!!

Removed the existing pieces and replaced with the new -- it was that easy, I do not think it even took ten minutes! The parts were delivered in record time and that was greatly appreciated. Thank you!

water pooling on floor

Hang with me on this. Gas burner on 10 year old dryer went out. I'm not touching that. Creepy repair guy that made wife really nervous paid a visit, ordered parts, cancelled appointments, and days later returned to finish up($140). In meantime, dishwasher started pooling on floor. Had guy look at that when back for the dryer. He ordered new door deal, and (days later) returned and installed that, But the pooling was only worse. That weekend I look at it myself. One pump housing screw (and a big piece of broken glass)was sitting on bottom of unit. Other housing screws were loose. The rubber outlet gasket/seal was sticking way out at missing screw. The obvious problem. Ordered new plastic spray arm and rubber gasket parts (cheap), which arrived faster than repair guy. In maybe 10 minutes I removed spray arm and other pump housing screws, was shocked by extent of wear on old parts, dropped the new rubber seal into its slot, and replaced the lower spray arm using new plastic seal and ring parts. Easy. Fixed. Dishwasher works better than ever. And I even have (an expensive)new seal on dishwasher door. Grrr. Easy part identification, helpful videos, super fast shipping. PartSelect is where I go first from now on.

Dishwasher is 10+ years old. It has given no problems over the years. The middle spray arm tube wore out, it had a hole one inch in size. The wash arm bearing just wore out. The repairs went easy there were on problems at all. Dishes now come out nice and clean.
