control panel not working

  • Customer: Thomas from Northampton MA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

1. Turn off the power at the panel (breaker). 2. Open the door and using the torx driver remove the 10 screws around the perimeter of the door. 3. Now you can loosen the interior panel.BE CAREFUL. THE EDGES OF THE PANEL ARE VERY SHARP! Do not remove the panel yet.4. Tilt the door back up until it is almost closed, then pull straight up on the door handle. At this point the front panel will slide up and off.5. Have a helper hold the interior panel while you disconnect the wires.6. Remove the white box from the control panel and unplug it. 7. Remove the control panel by removing the other screws. 8. Now you can begin to reassemble using the new control panel. To connect the tape from the panel to the white box, remove the screw that holds the white box together and take it apart. This makes plugging the tape in MUCH EASIER. 9. Reassemble. Have your helper there to hold the interior panel while you reassemble.

Mice were living behind and on top of the dishwasher and destroyed the pad. Had to throw it away. Ordering you was easy, and the pad fit perfectly.

We watched the very excellent video on this web site for replacing the Accumulator Filter and followed the instructions it provided. It's possible that we could have just cleaned our existing accumulator filter once we understood what it was and how to get to it, but the results of replacing it have been dramatic. It's like a new dishwasher.

Cup clip cracked some time ago, and a second one recently did the same.

Ordered replacements for all 4 cup clips and, as usual, they were the exact perfectly matching part from PartSelect. Snapped in by hand in just a few seconds. Tip: when seating the new clip, install one end and then push the connecting bar and not the second end. Pushing the bar will slightly angle the end - allowing it to snap over the tine easier.

door wasn't latching and started its cycle before door was shut

I just followed another persons directions that was in the system already. He had a great idea by taking the new switches out of the new latch and replacing them with the old ones from the bad latch. The old switches are still good and it made for a simple repair. This way you didn't have to disconnect the wire from the switches and now you have two new switches on hand. The old switch had a burnt spot on the connector.

Dishwarsher was making loud almost grinding type noise

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

I followed the video instructions except I had no idea what tools he was using because he talked so fast, but I figured it out myself. I could not get the guard off but I worked around it. Then I took off the discharge piece. The impeller needed to come off and I unscrewed it but the impeller was stuck tight to the diswasher. It did not slide off like in the video. I ended up having to break up the impeller with pliers until it fell apart enough to take off.That was the only semi difficult part. I replaced impeller. The new screw I ordered did not fit on my machine??? So I used the old one again. I reassembled all and the dishwasher now works good. Still makes a little noise which could be normal. Nothing like it was making.

After installing a new filter, :( I tried this. I wish I would have done this first since it's way cheaper and easier!!! If your dishwasher slowly starts to decline in its ability to clean the dishes, it's probably this problem.

Followed video. Everything went together fine, but leaked water around motor shaft seal. Read comments section on video and someone had the same problem. I had pushed the seal into base too deep. I pulled it out and reseated it. It worked without leaking after that. Bob

The rack threads through this part. I needed to remove the rack along with this part by carefully unlocking the rack through its rear latch. Then I removed the protector cap of the portion of rack sticking through tine latch. Then carefully withdrew the rack from the tine latch. Then threaded the rack in the same way through the replacement latch. Then attached this latch with the rack to the tray and re-hooked the rear part. ONLY tricky part is to realize that rack needs to be removed along with the tine latch to be able to replace it.

Pump gasket melting and falling apartGetting black marks all over dishes and tupperware

The actual repair was pretty easy except the cleaning of the old gasket. It was melted and smeared all over the place, had to use mineral spirts to clean everything once i removed all the parts. Star screw driver with the power off i removed all the screws down to the pump, unlocked 3 locking clips from below the unit and removed the gasket without having to remove the motor. Cleaned everything and reassembled works perfect. use the diagram of that model to how to reassemble or take pictures

The glasses on the top rack had food particles in them after a wash cycle

I initially took everything out and cleaned everything with the shop vac, and outside with the garden hose. That did not work, so I looked on parts select for a new accumulator filter, as I was not able to clean that very well. To install the new filter, I removed the sliding racks, top and bottom, and the water manifold, then removed the lower wash arm, then the parts under that, the filter plate, the outlet, the impeller, all the way to the accumulator filter. After removing that, installation was the reverse. I also cleaned the middle washing arm, and the lower, as I noticed food particles blocking the outer holes. All is good now, and the dishwasher, which we use almost every day, is working fine.
