The quiet power 3 has the heating element in the back, so remove the screws holding the unit in place. Remove the bottom cover and disconnect the water inlet pipe, (after turning off the water of course). Discard the copper tubing if applicable, and pull dishwasher out until you can tilt it forward. Unsrew the plastic nuts and remove the wires for the element. Test the old one to make sure that you need to replace it. When sure of the problem reinstall in the reverse order. Replace the copper with stainless steel braided line and test.

The first thing I did was checked to make sure that it was receiving power. Once that was verified, I started a little troubleshooting for the problem I was having, and discovered the problem was more than likely the switch on the door. I followed the excellent instructions on the website -- which I really needed. I removed the 8-10 screws on the door, removed the old parts and replaced with the new ones in less than 30 min total. I am certain that I saved myself well over $100 with this quick, easy, do-it-yourself approach.

The initial problem was that the top rack was difficult to slide out. I purchased a new set of upper rollers. In order to remove the roller you must slide it off the rail. To do this, you must first remove the end cap. I broke the end original end cap trying to do this. The new roller installation was simple. So was the installation of the new end cap. Simply press it on.

The dishwasher was not filling with water

  • Customer: Missy from Milton VT
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Wrench(Adjustable)

This repair was not difficult except that the part was hard to get to. You need to lay on the ground and the space is small to fit the tools in. It was especially difficult to squeeze the hose clamp on and off. If you are the handy sort and would not be intimidated by pulling the dishwasher out (like I was), then I recommend doing that. Changing the actual part was a breeze and self explanatory. Be sure to shut off the power and water supply to the dishwasher. Bring a towel to soak up residual water in the hose. Watch the video on this site, it was exactly what I needed to see! I was able to fix my mom's dishwasher! What a great feeling!

took the front covers off, used om meter as suggested after disconnecting the wire plug. discovered infinity, so as suggested, determined the valve defective. Ordered over the new valve from this company. After it arrived, took the old valve off by removing it from the bracket. Used the pliers to take the hose off, then unscrewed the supply hose by usung the adjustable wrench. Took the old valve to my shop vise to hold it firmly, then unscrewed the fitting, wrapped the tape suggested and installed it on the new valve. Took it back to the dishwasher, screwed the supply hose on, slipped the hose on and the clamp, turned on the water to check for leaks. Found non, so installed the valve on the frame, turned on the power and checked for filling. Itfilled fine and operated like it was supposed to. Put the front covers back on, and enjoyed praise from wife!!!

Appliance appeared dead, no lights visible on door

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

I checked for power coming into the dishwasher and up to the main boards using a voltage sensing device which emitted a sound when voltage was present. So initially, I presumed that power to the dishwasher was good. I then replaced the switch interlocks for the door lock, but the dishwasher remained dead. Then I used the multimeter to check the exact volts coming into the main boards and found it was only 39 volts. Next I checked the plug which supplies this power and found a bad connection in the plug. A screw was loose for the neutral wire. I tightened up the screw and with good power, everything worked.
