big project remove old dish rack and replace with mew rack.

I was very disappointed in the in-the-door silverware basket most dishwashers are equipped with today and longed for the ones that have been phased out.

I went to PartSelect online and easily found an exact duplicate of my old basket at a reasonable price. I ordered it, expecting delivery in about 3 - 5 days. It was on my doorstep 2 days after the order was placed. I opened the dishwasher door, set it in the place of my choice, and what a timesaver! Try it! You'll like it!

The coating on the lower rack was showing signs of wear and several end caps had worn away..

The part arrived in three days and matched perfectly. All I had to do was take out the old rack and set the new one on the track and close the door. We recently sold our house and want to leave everything clean and in good shape just as we would expect it to be. I wish replacing all parts was this easy. Bonnie Stanley

Hard to get end caps off -broke them

  • Customer: Linda from Tucson AZ
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

  • Tools Required: Pliers

My dishwasher used this part # as a substitute for the original part, which i guess is no longer made. After reading the other customers' comments,I thought people were describing two very different experiences with the installation -- some just "popped the cap off the end," or "couldn't be easier." Others had so much difficulty getting the cap off that they broke the cap. I think people must be dealing with totally different kinds of plastic caps. When I started on mine, I couldn't find a way to just "pop" the cap off. It was made so that some small flexible stems or prongs that slid in when installed could not be slid back out. I used a pliers to twist, poke, tilt, bend, whatever I could do to get the plastic cap off the end. That wasn't working, so I tried to bend rims the metal track open, but found the metal was too thick or strong for me to bend it. So I had to twist and force the cap, and the piece that kept the cap on broke off. On one side of the rack it was broken so badly that it couldn't be put back on--kept falling off. Had to try to crimp the rims of the track inward to keep the cap on. It's very loose but it has stayed in for the most part. The cap on the other side cracked enough to get it out without completely breaking off a piece. It went back in better than the first side. Pretty frustrating! I suspect because I don't have the original part with replacement caps to slide in. ?????

Inside dishwasher door broke at door hinge.

Removed the existing inner door by removing screws along the edge of the inside door. Had trouble removing the door latch but after lifting it on one side of the plastic door fitting, it eventually lifted out. I also had some trouble getting the spring loaded soap door back into the replacement inner door. After playing with it for awhile I realized that the soap door should be in the open position when putting the spring latch back on. The soap door won't close until you get the entire inner door mounted and back on. I also want to note the the inside vent in the upper part of the inner door needs to be removed from the old inner door and installed in the new one. I missed that at first and it allowed condensation to get inside the door which caused the dishwashers alarm to go off during the dry cycle. One last note that I initially decided not to replace the existing sound proofing material in the new door based on advice from a website that stated that I wouldn't notice the sound difference. That was definitely untrue. I had to disassemble the door, replace the sound proofing and then it sounded fine. Overall it was a little difficult to figure out but considering how inexpensive the replacement door was compared with a having a service repairman come out, it was worth the trouble.

Our old racks were getting rusty and breaking off.

We did not want to spend money for a new dishwasher when the motor is doing just fine. So we went to our local Sears store and were told it would be $200.00 plus tax and it would be 7-10 days for shipping. So we went to partselect.com and ordered an upper and lower dishrack. It was here in 2 days and we paid about $175.00. They were really easy to replace and are working just fine.

I removed the old corner tub baffle's and replaced them with the new one's and that took care of the problem. I used a putty knife to remove the old one's and put some new adhesive on and put the new ones in place and let them set up for two days to let them really set up and they work really good no leaks.

I removed the plastic inner door liner, removed the timer assembly. Replaced both plastic parts, Detergent cup release arm and dispenser release timer lever. The most difficult part was reassembling the timer lever spring. Long nose pliers made it simple. Works like new.
