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.

replace broken door latch

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!

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.

The dishrack guide rali stop had come off one of the guide rails, so the wheel in the guide rail would often roll right past the end of the rail, causing the rack to pitch down. this was rather frightening with the rack full of glasses and other breakables.

At first I snapped the plastic piece together and then tried to put it in the guide rail. That's where the sharp knife came in handy, to pry the piece apart again and start over. It was easy to see how the piece was supposed to go into the end of the rail and snap in place; I just didn't look carefully before I had to backtrack! I haven't yet tried to put in the other pieces we ordered.

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.

The lower spray arm of this model has a chronic problem with the plastic seams splitting and the horizontal blast causing door leaks. This was the third spray arm replaced on this unit. Rather than simply replacing the spray arm with the OEM device purchased, I used a solder gun to reweld the seam on the spray arm. I expect that the additional welding will provide many more years of service than the OEM replacement part. They should really improve the quality of the replacement part to prevent splitting. A metal replacement would be worth $50 and provide a better repair than the plastic arm.

Unscrewed bottom panel. I could see right spring in proper position, left spring lying on floor, and broken linkage. Ordered part from partselect.com. To install, had to unscrew dishwasher attachment to counter, loosen leveling legs, pull it out a bit, then could replace linkage and reattach spring, retighten leveling legs, then push back in and replace screws and bottom panel.

the cheap plastic handle cracked.

Turn off the power supply to the appliance. There is wiring you could mess up if something goes wrong. Open the door. Remove the four (4) torx head stainless steel screws on each side of the interior door panel. (total of 8). Then remove the two (2) torx head stainless steel screws near the top of the door on either side of the latch. Before you pry the interior door panel off, have handy a non-metallic weight, such as a brick or heavy book.. When you pull the interior door panel loose, the weight difference will cause the springs to pull the door up and closed. The brick will hold it open while you replace the cheap plastic handle. Do not try to fully removal the interior door panel as there are electrical wires attached. Just lien the interior door panel up onto the lower dish tray. You will need a 5/16" hex nut driver to remove the two (2) screws that hold the plastic handle on. Then, just reverse the whole process.
