Turned off power and water to dishwasher, removed kick plate to dishwasher, removed mounting bracket from frame rail of dishwasher, unplugged valve then used pliers to remove spring clamp on rubber line and used box wrench to remove water line attached to brass connection. There was a lot of calcium build up around screen and rubber O-ring and cleaning that may have fixed it but pulled off anyhow. One problem I had is that the old part would not come apart where the L-joint screwed into the collar that attaches to valve on old setup to allow new one to be bolted to it. So I looked at putting new valve on the old mounting bracket. That did not work after I got it apart as the new bracket is flat while the old is counter sunk...and the new valve has a larger footprint and would not fit flush to seal. So back to work bench and put valve in vise as the threads had plumbers pipe cement it looked like and they were tight. Got the two joints apart...cleaned with wire brush...sanded down mouth of brass collar that fits against O-Ring of new valve to make sure clean. Put teflon tape on all threads and tightened it all back up. Reconnected, plugged in, mounted to dishwasher and ran a full cycle with dishwasher pulled out so I could monitor any leakage from beginning. All is good...so slid back under sink and ran load with dishes...noticed water on floor. Freaked out...pulled it all out and valve was dry. I forgot to clean up the little bit of water that came out of lines when disconnected first time for repair... :) All is good now.

Removed the end caps by spreading the tab with a screwdriver and twisting a half turn to the inside. Remove rack. Remove old rollers and snap on new ones. Easiest repair I've ever made on anything.

New Wheels Narrower than OEM

While the delivery was swift, the new lower dishwasher rack wheels were narrower than the originals. The rack would fall into the lower area and not roll out easily on the channel. I removed the wide wheels from the old rack and exchanged on the new one. It took some brute hand strength but worked. Still not perfect, but better than rusted lower rack.

Place the axle inside the wheel. Mount the wheel to the bottom of the dish rack and snap the axle to secure the wheel to the dish rack. Total project time less than 5 min. Video to replace wheel and axle was very helpful for those who are not mechanically inclined.

Dishwasher was not draining.

  • Customer: Patrick from Hawthorn Woods IL
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

The dishwasher would drain correctly 3 out of 4 times and the original part did not appear to be in bad shape. Decided to change anyway based on posted success rate in resolving the issue and the low cost of the part. After one month of daily operation the issue has been completely resolved. Could not have been any easier!

Water on bottom of DW does not drain & Wet/dirty dishes

  • Customer: Valdis A. from Louisville KY
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Followed previous directions which were easy. Hard on back trying to reach over door all the way to the back. My DW is over 15 yrs old and the plastic plug w/corroded and locked into place. Tried turning it by hand to no avail since the plug turning lips were worn off/or not long enought to grasp it with. Took a hammer and chisel to the lips and turned it about an inch counter clockwise (either way), then lifted it out prying it with a screwdriver. KEEP IN MIND THE THREADS ARE JUST FOR LOCKING IT IN PLACE AND THE PLUG CAN BE TURNED EITHER WAY. IT DOES NOT SCREW IN!! Cleaned it with DW40 and reassembled it.

After reading some of the suggestions I couldnt beleive it was that simple and easy. So I ordered the piston and nut assembly, installed it in less than 15 min. and after a rinse cycle test the problem was fixed. Thank you all for this wonderful site.
