Your web site had a repair video that I watched and it showed me how to replace the broken part which was very helpful. 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.

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..

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.

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.

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.

We had to buy a special "star tipped" wrench set for $12 to remove the screws holding the door panel on. Unscrewed the 10 or so screws, carefully opened the panel, not disturbing the electrical wires. It was obvious to see the part of the handle that broke, removed the spring on the side, pulled out old handle, slipped in new and replaced the little spring and Bingo! Done! Saved us $120 labor from local repairman, we are very pleased. It helped that my husband held the door panel while I manipulated the handle and spring with my smaller fingers, kinda tight quarters. The other customer comments were very helpful. I definitely will use this site again if needed.

Broken handle

To access the handle assembly, the control panel must be removed. Remove six (6) torx screws (T-20?) from inside of door, being careful to support the control panel, as there are small wires between the door and the control panel assembly. Carefully remove what remains of the broken handle so as not to damage the mounting pegs. Snap the new handle carefully in place. I took the advice of Thomas from Austin, TX and added a second spring to the other side where pegs exist on both the handle and the control panel assembly. I used needle nose pliers, as it is a little tight trying to get the small spring on the pegs. Place the control panel back in position and reattach using the six torx screws removed previously. Overall repair time was less than 10 minutes. The handle does have a more "reliable" feel having return springs on both sides.

Plastic connector to door handle broke.

Broken upper rack wheel (front right)

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.

Due to the posts on this site, I took the advise of replacing the chopper assy. Old chopper did not look bad and seemed to function. Apparently I was wrong. After new chopper was installed, dishwasher worked fine.

Just removed the old one and slipped the new one in very easy to do. It only takes about 5 seconds to replace.

Looked parts select site with the model of my dishwasher, found the place the piece belong to that came loose, order the part; it came in a 3 pc kit. Removed end clips of upper rack to take it out of the way, gently pulled the inside highest arm from ceiling of the dishwasher just enough to remove the worn small tac shaped plastic part & replacing it with the new one, then positioned the cone shaped plastic part into the spinner and snapped it into position. . . The part that was size of a tac was only worn out pc but needed replacing to hold the spinner in place.
