Plumber had suggested trying a new gasket rather than replace the dishwasher. Ordered one and installed it. Cleaned door and installed gasket in about 30 minutes. So far it works great .... and ... cheaper than new dishwasher.

First silverware basket had a hole in it.

Water leaking out during rinse cycle

  • Customer: Earl from Holmes Beach AL
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

Based on what I read from other people and partselect, it was fairly easy to ascertain what was wrong. I removed the solonoid valve by removing the two screws that held in place. Had to clean up the solonoid valve rod due to water leaking into it by running it on a wire brush. Pulled out the stop nut and old seal and replaced it with the new seal. Could not get the new stop nut on but it does not seem to move so let it go. Have to say that reading all the comments certainly helped me with the repair. Additionally, ordered parts by email at 10:30 in the morning and receiving them the very next day. Could not believe they were delivered so quickly.

The Drain shaft seal was leaking.

  • Customer: George from Salem VA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Wrench set

The solenoid and linkage was easy to disasemble, but getting the retainer (push on nut) off was difficult without removing the motor and pump. Once removed it was a snap. Getting the pump/motor back onto the pipes was near impossible from underneath. I had to remove the dishwasher from under the countertop to get it back correctly. I would reccomend doing this for this repair, as it made life a lot easier. Unwiring and removing the water supply line was not a problem either. WORKS AS GOOD AS NEW!

Could not get the arm to close.

I could not pull it out to get the new one in so I used a dremmel. Then pressed in the new one.

Thanks for your help.

No tools needed for this half-minute repair. Just bend the flexible plastic tab on the back of the end cap until it slips into the metal rail and the end cap snaps into place. Couldn't be easier or simpler!

the motor was leaking pretty badly.

I first shut off water supply and disconnected the water line and drain hose to the disposal. Then I pulled the dishwasher out from the cabinet unplugged the electrical wire from the wall and laid it on it's back side. I then laid out the new motor and compared parts to parts. It was a direct replacement of the same motor except for very minor changes. I unscrewed the support bracket, then unscrewed the bottom clamp that joined the motor and the rubber connector to the dishwasher. I also decided to replace that part also. That part was removed by using my hand to unscrew it. It has large threads that are not very recognizable when looking at the part. It unscrews counterclockwise like a normal screw. You have to hold the inside piece while you screw the new one back in place. I put it as tight as I could by hand. I would recommend doing so on all motor replacements due to that part not looking so good and if it leaked you would have to take everything apart again to change it out. That part is a separate purchase and it is not included with the kit. Then I took the other clamp to the plastic connector off. I then unplugged the electrical connections, there were only two and they were both exact connections for the replacement motor. After that the entire motor was separated from the dishwasher and I went slipped the new motor into place connected two clamps and made sure everything was reconnected. I slid the dishwasher in place, reconnected the power wire, the drain hose, water supply. I checked for leaks after restoring water pressure. Then ran the dishwasher through a complete cycle and it works just fine. Total repairs cost about 150.00 and the dishwasher appears to be brand new again. I took one look at the diagrams and never had to refer back to them. They had plenty different diagrams and the first option was mine and that was all I needed. I would recommend this option to anyone.

The top drawer of the dishwasher would extend past the support rails.

The top right rail, facing the dishwasher, has a self lock tab. Using pliers, straighten the lock tab, insert the cap and then restore the lock tab to it's original position.

Small rubber gasket needed to be replaced. Not the best design by GE, but it has lasted 11 years before leaking.
Needed to remove the solenoid to access the shaft of the valve. Tough to push gasket into place, but eventually it fit in.

I just had to play around with it to attach the new cap without breaking it.....never did this before but eureka! it worked.

upper dishwashr rack lost the end cap and the rack kept coming off the track when you went to push it back in it would jam into the track and all the dishes would bang and fall.

Ordered the Drain Valve Shaft Seal and Push On Nut to make repair. Removed dishwasher from counter. Removed motor/pump assembly from dishwasher. Removed drain celenoid from pump. Removed old push on nut and old drain valve seal. Installed new seal and push nut. Replaced everything in reverse order. Amazingly no water leaks after reinstallation. Seams to be working fine so far....fingers crossed. Hoping to get a few more years out of this dishwasher.
Thank You PartSelect.

Water was leaking from under the dishwasher

  • Customer: John from Vineland NJ
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 2 of 4 people found this instruction helpful
I turned off the water supply to the dishwasher. Then took off the front panels and disconnected the water. I then unscrewed the dishwasher from the countertop, pulled it out luckily there was plenty of play in the wire, and drain hose. I turned it on its side and had to remove a couple clamps to free th piece that I was replacing. Once I got to it, it just unscrewed. I put the new one on and everything back together. It was easy.

dishwasher leaking from solenoid drain valve

  • Customer: robert from wayne NJ
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set

Disconnect the power. Unscrew the bottom toe kick panel. Locate the solenoid drain valve to the front left of the machine and disconnect the wired connection. Pry off the retainer clip on the drain valve spindle and set aside for reuse. Plan on getting a new one because you will most likely damage it when removing. Remove the spring from the solenoid valve spindle arm to access one of the three screws holding the solenoid drain valve to the pump. Remove the three screws. Remove the solenoid and plastic housing. Remove the push-on-nut from the spindle by cutting off the old one with wire cutters. Plan on buying a new one because you will never get it off in one piece. Pry out old valve seal with a knife or thin screw driver. Insert new seal and install new push on nut over seal. Important!! make sure the drain valve opens/closes freely by hand because you may have pushed the spindle in to far when installing the push on nut. Place the push on nut in a socket wrench socket with an extension and hammer it on gently or try to start itwith pliers and use a small length of 3/8" copper tubing. Again, check to see if drain valve rotates and pull the spindle in or out with pliers to adjust. Reassemble remaining parts in reverse order. Leak shoud be fixed but check to see if machine drains properly. You may have to dissassemble and adjust the spindle again. This is a difficult repair with the machine left in place. However, it is worth 1-2 hours of your time and for about 20 bucks in parts and shipping. Good luck!!

GE Dishwasher leaking

  • Customer: Lawrence from Finksburg MD

Inspected the old gasket. Removed, cleaned, re-seated existing gasket. Tested and found smaller leaks. Purchased and installed new gasket. Majority of leaks stopped but some detergent still leaks. Unsure what the problem is with that but the main leaks have been fixed. Dishwasher is less than 5 years old. Thank You.
