I first shut off the power to dishwasher, then shut off water and disconnected the water supply line. Then pulled the washer out from under counter and layed it face down. Undid the hose clamp from sump housing and clamp for wash arm rubber connector. Disconnected screw for the motor brace. Motor swung out of way. Pulled out sump housing and cleaned the edges of the hole. Pushed housing threw bottom and got it to seat in the groove inside the washer. I then unscrewed the rubber for the wash arm and cleaned those areas too. Screwed the new connector on and made it tight, old one was loose. Moved the motor back and reconnected hose clamps and reattached the motor support bracket. Stood washer back up and pushed it back under the counter. Reconnect water line and turned water back on to make sure it was not leaking. Turned power back on to washer. Then poured a large pot of water into washer and turned on and kept checking for leaks but there were none. Finished putting cover plates back on and the washer was done. Then I had to replaced some of the flooring that was damaged from the leaking of these two parts.

Removed and inverted the DW. Removed the impeller, grinder, screen and seals then the actual shaft seal. Replaced with new parts in reverse order. Instructions provided with the seal kit were simple and excellent. They were right to the point.

Key symptom: when the drain phase begins, there should be a satisfying "Thunk" from the solenoid. No Thunk=solenoid not working

Dishwasher would not drain.

I cleaned all the drains in the dishwasher and the drain in the garbage disposal that leads from the dishwasher. I also removed the piston and nut assembly and tried cleaning it but the dishwasher still did not drain. I was using a wet vac to empty the standing water after the cycle completed. I bought the new piston and nut assembly. It arrived in 24 hours. I unscrewed the 4 screws in the back of the dishwasher that held the screen that covered the assembly, used my hand to unscrew the piston and nut assembly, screwed in the new part and replaced the screen and 4 screws. It completely fixed the problem.

Rubber piston on check valve was almost completely gone. Water backed up finally to the point of overflowing on kitchen floor.

Simply followed the instructions for the part on the part page. One thing that helped taking out some screws was to remove a couple of the brackets that hold the heating element and move it slightly. I would suggest cleaning all of the gunk out of drains and clean all holes in the screens using a toothpick, etc. Be careful not to overtighten the nut for the next time you have to do this!

looked up the model no. on partselect web site and they discribed several diagnoses for different problems.they gave a 19% probability for a bad valve and nut. i removed the cover and the nut valve and the valve looked pretty bad. i ordered a new part and delivery was very good.i replaced the part and that took care of my problem. i was very happy with the whole repair.

Incomplete cleaning / standing water / drain failure

  • Customer: John from mars PA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers

There is sufficient clearance to remove the motor and pump from under the dishwasher after removal of the front lower panels. This avoids the inconvenience of moving the dishwasher. Some ouch work required to remove some of the fittings as sight lines are obstructed - use a mirror to help. Installation is easier as all but one of the hose and pump clamps can be installed with the screw heads accessible from the front. Only installation issue was that the mounting holes on the pump body for the ground wires and the support piece had been drilled but no screw threads had been cut. Two minutes work with a tap solved the problem. One suggestion is to run a couple of loads before replacing the front cover to check for leaks. I did find one after the second load.

Leaking water

Most difficult part of repair was getting dishwasher out and in under the cabinet. Especially, feeding the copper water line from under the sink and then back while trying to align the connection. Installing the part itself was easy with good instruction for taking it off and reinstalling. However, since the motor had been upgraded, it required new connections. The connections were provided for this, but no instructions for the electrical connections.

I ordered the corner baffles and installed them in the corners in just minutes. Repair company quoted me about $100 if they had the parts on the truck. If they had to come back it would be another service call. Did the repairs my self for $24 with shipping charges. Happy Customer

Leaking Dishwasher

  • Customer: Eugene from Port Saint Lucie FL

Replacing the two corner baffles was the third attempt to stopping the leak. I first replaced the door seal without removing the inner door and the leak did not stop. Then I removed the inner door, reinstalled the door along the bottom and added the small seal required at the lower center portion which is separate than the longer door seal. Still leaked! Then I replaced the corner baffles and alas., the leak stopped. I would recommend that all seals be replaced at the same time. Total cost about $40.00 and can easily be done in one hour or less. I ordered the parts And they arrived remarkably in les than 24 House with regular delivery. Very pleased with Parts Select instructions and service!

Really simple. Remove old corner baffles by just lifting out and replace with new. Close door to insure the door seal aligns with the new baffles and good to go.
