The kit came with all necessary parts. The spray arm is now one part with the tube that brings water into unit. There was a video online to show the steps. Not only was this an easy repair but now the dishwasher works like new! I am a very satisfied customer & have shared the experience with several people. The cost was very reasonable. Very satisfied & will use this site again.

Water dripping from float and right side of door

Replaced the door gasket and float and switch - no improvement. Still leaking about 1 quart water per load. Hmmmmm. Took the lower arm off and discovered a screw missing and the impeller gasket below lower arm was bad. It is a gasket about 4 inchs in diameter, it was stetched and torn. The missing gasket was allowing water to shoot across the wash water like Moses parting the Rea Sea. Wave water was going up the float (and out) and up the lower door gasket (and out). Ordered the screw and the "rubber band" gasket. Took about five minutes to drop / screw them in. Several other screws were backed out part way. Now the floor is completely dry. Dishwasher is fixed. Wife is happy. I saved $1200 on the new dishwasher she does not need. In addition, the water squirt out of the pump impeller cover was lowering the water pressure in both arms. Now the dishes are dramatically cleaner and better scrubbed than they have been for the last couple years. Glasses sparkle again. Thanks PartsSelect for the diagrams and instructions. Allen.

The new part came as one piece. You simply unscrew the center anchor screw, remove the part, put the new part in place and tighten the screw. It was that easy for this part reacement.

Dishwasher Stopped then only made a humming noise.

  • Customer: Michael from Marysville PA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set, Wrench(Adjustable)

Dishwasher Stopped then only made a humming noise. Started with the Video on your site and it was quite helpful. I had trouble holding the drain impeller with the wrench. Used a drill to bore holes around the center and then broke the outer ring off to get a good hold on the center. Then was able to remove the bolt. The rest of the repair was easy. Something had caught the chopper blade and unraveled the spring. Replaced all the parts and it is working fine now.

Dishwasher made crunching/grinding noise, then would not drain

Ordered the drain and wash impeller/chopper kit, which I received in 2 days. Great service. I watched the video on how to install the parts and the video was very clear and made the job seem easy. And it was easy, except for getting the impeller screw out. The impeller top was very brittle and pieces kept breaking off when trying to hold it with the adjustable wrench. Robo Grips didn't work any better. The only thing that finally got that screw out was a long handled socket wrench with an extension. You need the extra leverage if the screw is really stuck. Also note that the balls are definitely in the wrong place in the video. You need to remove them when doing the repair, then drop them back into the hole in the gasket/seal cover for the impeller after it is replaced. They will sit side-by-side if installed correctly. Turns out that the crunching/grinding noise was the chopper trying to chop up one of the clips that holds the silverware basket on the bottom rack. It was in many small pieces and had ripped up and split the impeller shaft.The dishwasher is back together and running perfectly. Thank you for very clear instructions on replacing the part and the quick delivery of the product.

as instructed in video. one problem-tube holder missing from kit. contacted your customer service which resulted in several additional e-mails. part could have been replaced by you as it was in stock, but your procedures were to credit me and get me to reorder etc. Your procedures and resulting additional e-mails were totally unnecessary;however, everything resolved and I will certainly be using your company again as other situations arise and I have found you to be very reliable.
