1. Removed front panel. 2. Backed out retaining screws at top. 3. Backed up leveling feet. 4. Pulled out dishwasher but seemed tight so stopped not wanting to break electrical or water line. Made very short space in which to work. Insulation batting was binding at top between DW and counter opening so tended to bunch up. 5. Spring at rear had flown off, so had to reattach while not being able to see. 6. Spring and new line were very tight so grabbed line with channel pliers just ahead of spring to get enough slack to get line over guide wheel. 7. Moved DW back into place and reattached with screws. 8. Had to play with leveling feet to get gap the same on each side of DW and cabinet opening. 9. Reattached lower front panel. 10. It has worked great.

I read information on this website about the function of the high limit thermostat. I found that it was the problem by disconnecting the two wires on the thermostat and straight wiring to bypass it. This allowed the machine to work properly so I ordered the high limit thermostat. To replace the part I used a screwdriver to remove the instrument panel and replaced the high limit thermostat by disconnecting the two wires from the old thermostat and connecting the wires to the new thermostat. I then replaced the instrument panel. My machine is working properly again..

Dishes did not dry

After attempting to change the "high limit switch" to no avail, I researched further and found that doing a reset/reboot cured the problem.The instructions for the high limit thermostat were a bit off, as there was no screw to remove, only a spring like bracket that I did not try to figure out. The work area is so tight if the dishwasher is not removed and tilted that I thought it best to look for alternatives prior to pulling it out and disconnecting power and water. So ... voila, it's fixed with a reset only. Reset is accomplished by pushing two buttons 5 times. "high Temp Scrub then Heat Dry, high temp scrub then heat dry etc, until you click them both 5 times.It will go through cycles for a few minutes, then after done, run the dishwasher as normal and test if fixed. There are a few different ways to do it depending on the model.

Dishes not cleaning upper rack

Removed both baskets. Then removed 1 Phillips screw for upper rack water supply. Unscrew lower washer arm. Twist lower water supply clockwise to disengage from upper piece and from retainers. Remove 4 torx head screws and remove strainer assy. Remove 1 torx head screw from chopper cover and pull out chopper cover.. Pulled up on chopper screen and removed all broken pieces. Pulled on chopper itself to load the spring and put chopper in place. Make sure it goes in outer most slot. Reinstall in reverse order. Works perfectly.

The upper rack wheel assembly became brittle & broke so the basket fell

Parts arrived extremely quickly. Thank you. I read the other suggestions on your site and they were helpful. They suggested to take off the end caps in order to slide off the broken parts and slide on the new. I had some difficulty getting the end caps off. Ended up using a screwdriver but in the process was afraid I was going to break off a little plastic tip that slips into the rail and holds the end-cap in place. But it worked out and was easy enough to then install the new parts by sliding them onto the rail and they pretty much snapped into place.

Broken upper rack wheel (front right)

  • Customer: David from Canal Winchester OH
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

I had to pull the dishwasher out from under the counter about 1 to 1.5 feet to access the small bolts holding the assembly in place. First removed the rack stops on the upper rack in order to remove the upper rack. Then removed the 2 bolts holding the wheel assy. in place and installed the new part and re-attached with the same 2 bolts. Re-installed the upper rack and put the rack stops back in place. Finally moved dishwasher back into place under the counter and secured. Hardest part of this job was getting the dishwasher out due to flooring and the adjustable feet on the front of the dishwasher. Otherwise the repair was pretty simple.

Some of the webbing in the bottom of the silverware basket had chipped out allowing the silverware to fall through and interfere with the rotating spray.

I removed the old one and measured it; then went to the website and picked out the matching replacement; put in the order and when it arrived, I simply clicked it into place.
