C1 and C2 Error Codes, then Leaking

  • Customer: Robert from Tustin CA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Dishwasher kept displaying error code C1 (drain partly blocked) and occasionally C2 (Drain completely blocked). The drain was fine. Parts Select said symptom "not draining" needed a check valve. Installed that (old one was very worn), but that didn't help. I decided to take off the bottom panel and eyeball the situation. Discovered a leak from the drain valve. But I also discovered the reason for the error codes. The leak had rusted the actuator in the drain valve solenoid so that it couldn't move reliably. So when drain time came, the drain valve didn't open, resulting in a C1 or C2 error (the washer electronics thought the drain was blocked--and in a way it was. I got the replacement parts for the leaking drain valve and installed them. Hints: take a photo of the assembly before you take it apart. Getting the push on nut off was an ordeal, as some have said. I spend at least two hours getting it off. I hope you have secret tool X13 to make it faster. Hint #2: There is play in the drain valve shaft, so I held it toward me with a pair of pliers while I pushed the new push on nut all the way tight to hold the new rubber washer. Hint #3: I used plumber's grease on the washer and shaft to make installation easier. I found the two pairs of long-handled needle nose pliers very useful. Oh, I sanded the rust off the solenoid actuator and added a bit of WD-40 and now the error code problem (as well as the leak) is over.

i first order the corner baffles and put them in. no change at all, still leaked terribly. the old baffles looked pretty good so i kept them. i then ordered the door gasket and the insert. i removed the old one, put in the new, and still no change. i thought perhaps the machine hadn't been used at all because it was like brand new inside, and previously owned by 'a little old lady'. i decided to load it up and run it on a regular wash, and have done that three times now. it drips a very small amount on the left corner but i'm quite happy that it decreased so much. I think perhaps the seal might be setting with the heat of the cycle because each time a load goes through it get less and less drips from that corner. The first order was sent by ups and they couldn't find where i lived so i actually had to go pick them up, but the second order was sent fedex and they had no problem finding my home, and i was very pleased with how fast my order came.

I firts turned off power to the diswasher through the circuit breaker panel. I removed the black tray at the bottom front of the dishwasher, removed the two screws attaching the water inlet valve, detached inlet and outlet water hoses as well as the eletric connector. I removed fitting from the old valve and installed in the new valve using some teflon tape. Installation is the reverse of the removal.

1. Pulled the upper basket out. 2. Removed the end caps on the tracks supporting the basket. 3. Cussed a little - used a small flat screwdriver to force a flange on the end cap to move far enough to free up the end cap. 4. Removed all 4 wheel assemblies. 5. Snapped 4 new upper wheels and axels into place on the basket. 6. Slid the upper basket into the tracks. 7. Replaced the 2 end caps. 8. Works like a charm.

The 4 rollers and axles needed to be replaced for the upper rack. First, I had to remove the end caps from the upper tracks. This was the most difficult part of the repair. I intially tried to pull the caps towards the front of the dishwasher which did not work. In the end, I twisted them towards the center of the dishwasher. Once this was done, I pulled the upper rack from the tracks, replaced the old rollers and axles with the new ones. Put the rack back on the track. Put the end caps back on. The repair took less than 15 minutes, for something that has be getting worse over the last year.

Drain Seal

The only thing I would add to your instructions. Hold the shaft tight while pushing the lock nut on. Pull back with a slight pressure, then push on nut. If you don't you could be placing to much tightness on the drain valve making it so your dishwasher won't fill properly.

Food particles left on dishes after every wash... Piston and Nut Assembly was completely worn out (disolved) and leaking dirty water back into the rack area instead of draining it.

Unscrewed 4 screws from the back, bottom of the rack area which hold the cover. Twist out the old Piston and Nut which is threaded to fit securely (needed some elbow grease to get the old one out). Twist the new part in and place the cover back in place with the 4 screws. Done. Dishwasher works like it was brand new. Cleanest dishes in the country... ;)
