Cleaned the lower sump unit and checked other parts for wear.Dishwasher had"nt been cleaned in a while.Part was a lot cheaper then some of the appliance parts store,ordered it on Saturday and received it on Tuesday.

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.

Watched the videos on Parts Select and one or two on other sites to get an idea how difficult the repair was. Ordered the part (circulation pump motor). I waited until I had the time to do the repair and a couple of extra hours just in case (ignore Murphy's Law at your own peril). The most time consuming parts were removing the connections (water supply and drain pipe) and dishwasher from the cabinet. Changing the motor was easy but make sure you have a nut driver with a long shank (8" or longer) to reach the nut holding the motor in place. After the repair, replacing the connections, and moving the dishwasher back into the cabinet, I left the kick plate off and ran the dishwasher to make sure the connections were water tight. Success. Dishwasher purrs like a kitten.

Simply replaced lower dish rack in dishwasher.

Ordered the part. It arrived in less than two days. Turn the power off for safety.You're done. You may have to loosen the drain line or water line to allow space to slide dishwasher far enough out to allow access to link kit. Easy repair. Video on your website gave detailed instructions. Thanks.

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.

brocken door balance cord

It was a fairly easy repair job after we got the dishwasher out of its space in the counter. To accomplish this make sure that the water line is shut off and disconnected and allows enough movement to move the washer out at least far enough to expose the balance cord and spring. Ensure that the electrical connection line shut off and is free enough to allow movement of the washer. Finally, ensure that the dishwasher is lowered, if necessary, to clear any obstructions, top and bottom. Move the washer out far enough to work on her balance cord and get on with the repair job.

Control panel lights were blinking. The normal wash light and cancel.

Took out the six torx screws. T-20.Folded the bad control panel down to see inside. Then unclipped door handle one clip on each side. After I got it off, I put on new control panel. Then pull the ribbon from the brain.One finger on each side, long side and wiggle gently. Once that's out unclip the brain an clip back in the new control panel. Then slide the new control panel ribbon into the brain. Done! Now, put back together. Side note. I had two tabs on the bottom of control panel, maybe for newer dishwasher. Wouldn't let mine line up. I broke the tabs off with pliers. Fit perfectly and works great!

A few weeks ago there was a grinding noise when running the dishwasher. We ignored it. About a week later the top rack stopped getting any water. I cleaned the chopper assembly but the problem came back after a week. Looking more closely, the chopper was damaged and the impeller had been stripped (p

The video is very helpful for replacing the Chopper Assembly. For the Impeller, reference the video for replacing the motor: http://youtu.be/pAKz1gMUWDA But once you have the motor removed and you identify the impeller, you need to insert a tool into the back of the motor to hold the impeller still from the back while you unscrew it in the front (I used a small wrench, a thin screwdriver would be ok too). Then, just screw on the new piece and follow the rest of the video to put everything back together again. Nothing this stay-at-home mom couldn't handle while the kids watched a tv show.

Loud motor noise led to non working motor.

Soap dispenser door won't open

This repair is actually easy to do however the problem I had was removing the door. It seems the kitchen aid engineers decided to have the sound insulation installed with adhesive. This means the door doesn't just easily remove like the video shows. I had to carefully scrape the back side with a 4" drywall tape knife. It's glued on both sides and the insulation covers the soap dispenser. Result was I had to carefully cut an access to the dispenser with a box cutter to get access. Be careful not to cut the dispenser wire when you make the opening. I would also cycle the washer before you reinstall the door as I didn't get mine tight enough and it leaked so I saved a bunch of time. I also changed the control unit because it is often the cause of the problem and since this my daughters who lives 10 hours a away. I decided it was a good investment. Finally Parts Select is great received the parts next day great service kudos to them.
