Removed the odd shaped screws on the back of the front of the dishwasher. Removed the screws from the old handle. Replaced the old handle with the new one. The screws that went into the handle were a bit tricky, but the rest was pretty easy. Be careful of sharp metal edges!

First I turned off the circuit breaker to dishwasher. Then removed the lower spinner and related parts. The water in the bottom needs to be sucked out with a shop vac next, because when the pump screws are removed any remaining water will drain underneath onto the floor. Remove the wash pump and drain rotor.
Remove the front bottom plate to access underneath, unplug the electric motor and thermister. Unscrew both hoses,drain and upper wash arm. Move the locking ring to release the the entire assembly up into the dishwasher.
The kit I bought had most of all the washer parts included, so on reassembly I used the new ones. The rest when back together in reverse order after a good cleaning. Since the thing was apart anyway why not clean up all the filters on reassembly. The kit also came with complete instructions.

replace broken door latch

  • Customer: Victor from Bellaire TX
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

This is the second time the door latch on my eight year old Jenn-Air dishwasher was replaced. I removed ithe door panel on the inside of the door by removing ten screws along the perimeter of the inside door panel. This is easy. The hard part is getting to the latch without taking the inside panel off the door. It helps to have another person hold the door as another person prys open the panel. There are two screws holding the latch. Once you unscrew the old latch and screw on the the new one, the hard part is over!

Rust and corrosion on the dishracks

I removed the bottom rack by simply rolling it out of the dishwasher, and removed (unsnapped) the rotating spray assembly. It was easily snapped into the center of the new dishrack. Next, I removed the roller stops from the rail holding the upper dishrack by following the marks (arrows) on the stops. I rolled out the upper dishrack, and rolled in the new one. Finally, I snapped the roller stops back into position.

The machine would no longer clean dishes.

I discovered that, except for the central tower, all the spray holes were all plugged with I took to be calcium deposites . Using the parts diagram located on this web site, I removed parts. All parts can be removed either by hand, nutdriver or small wrench however you do need a star drive (simliar to an allen wrench) to remove the Pump Cover and Secondary Filter. The Lower Spray Arm unsnaps from the Pump Cover and Secondary Filter. I laboriously removed the deposits from each part down as far as the support filter. The upper spray arm can be removed by unsnapping the hub. the Pump Cover and Secondary Filter is a closed unit so. I purchased a new one. The process is very labor intensive. Next time I am going to consider purchasing all new parts or calling a repair man.

Snap tabs for wheels on original part broken - resulting in the top rack being loose on one side and falling down when you touched it.

I aligned the V-shaped tabs on the inner side of the part with the slots in the mating part and simply pulled the old part out (it was already disengaged from the wheels in the metal rail). I then inserted the new part into the slots. One side went in well, but the other side required the part to be bowed slightly to match up the V-shaped tab with the slot. Then the hard part was getting the wheels in position to snap them on. Once in position, it took a bit of effort to engage the snaps in each wheel. I was afraid of breaking the new part. These snaps are very stiff and even with the notch between them there isn't any give, but I was able to apply enough constant, steady pressure to finally get them to snap in without breaking.

I didn't know how to put in the new one clips until I looked up a picture of them in place, on-line. Once I saw the picture, it was a matter of clipping the new ones in place.

first I turned off the water to the dishwasher, and turned the power off for the dishwasher.
removed the 4 screws from bottom panel
then removed the 2 screws from the bottom of the counter,
at this point I could pull the dishwasher out. then figured out where the part went and attached.
pushed the dishwasher back and lined up the holes under the counter, put those in first, the put the bottom panel back on, turned the water back on, and flipped the breaker switch.
Reading the other stories really did help me get some idea of what needed to be done
