Well, after I got the the dishwasher apart I realized the problem was not the wash impeller kit, it was the pump/ motor asembly. we deicided to replace the machine. the hardest part was holding the impeller from turning while removing the screw. there is a hex on top of the impeller you must hold in place but, if the machine is old, the hex is brittle,It will break as mine did. you will need to disconnect and take the washer from under the cabinet, and wedge a piece of wood into the motor to hold it. Then loosen the screw and inspect the components. 10 years old, it was more cost effective to replace the dishwasher. i emailed for a request authorization to return. partselect responded promptly with the autorization i needed to return the part. The service was good, and I would use partselect again.

This product comes in a bottle with a brush like Liquid Paper. It goes on incredibly easy. A second coat might be needed. I wanted to prevent rust from setting in so I covered the scratches and dings. The paint is a little brighter since my washer is 10 years old but it still looks great.

Dishes wouldn't dry

I shut off the power to the dishwasher, then I removed the front panel under the door. On the right side just behind the electrical box there are two wires going up to the hi-limit thermostat, (you may need a small mirror to see it), remove one screw that is holding the thermostat bracket, unplug the wires from the old thermostat and install new one. Screw bracket and thermostat back to the underside of the dishwasher, reinstall the front panel, turn on the power, done.

broken wash impeller unit

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

I removed the rubber boot on the top of the water dispersal unit ( stainless steel wand ) by turning it counterclockwise and the wand came off with ease. I then removed the top unit under it by removing the 8 torx screws and removed it. Under the unit is a cover with 1 torx screw to be removed and removed the cover to access the unit. I was unable to loosen the 1/4" nut on the shaft as it was very tight so I had to remove the unit and lock the motor armature with a piece of wood and removed the bolt. Using the kit I purchased I installed the new parts as required and it works as good as new.

The whole problem started with the upper vent on the door being plugged up with a whole bunch of labels that had been washed off of a bunch of tin cans that were washed prior to recycling them. Te high water float was also gummed up for the same reason and overflowed on the floor, I pulled it up and out and cleaned it up also, it works as good as new.

Dishwasher wouldn't clean - arms not spraying

  • Customer: Aivars from Round Lake Beach IL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set

Water was not being sprayed thru the arms. I opened the dishwasher, removed/unscrewed the spray arms and wash impeller (black plastic wheel that directs the water) and then noticed that the part below the wash impeller had broken into pieces. There was only a metal ring and it was supposed to have a spring attached to it. I replaced the ring/spring below the wash impeller using the part from the Drain and Wash impeller kit. The dishwasher works great now.

It was my first mechanical fix. Use the web to diagnose, find the specs of the appliance and use common sense and you can do it yourself too.

By the way, the parts from this site arrived the next day.

Dishwasher leaked

With a screwdriver I released the snaps that held the old seal on place, cleaned the area and then simply snapped the new seal in. The remarkable part for me however, is that I placed the order on December 21st @ 3PM (in way-upstate New York) and to my utter amazement it was delivered to me the very next day December 22nd @ 9AM; in plenty of time to reach my wife's deadline. Wow-Thank-You!

Dishwasher would only partially fill with water.

  • Difficulty: Easy

First turn off the power and water. Water valve is under the sink. I removed the two lower panels with 5/16 nut driver. I disconnected the valve from the cross member, again with a 5/16 socket. I removed that cross member with the same nut driver. I disconnected the rubber hose using pliers. I unplugged the electrical connector from the valve body. I held the water inlet pipe with a wrench and twisted the valve off with the adjustable pliers. I applied teflon tape to the water inlet pipe and reassembled. Works like new.

For the rubber water tube I pulled off the old tube, put some dish soap on the new tube and it slid right on.

I read the repair stories. Did not remove anything but the old tube. Used hairdryer to heat one end, pushed it onto front opening; heated other end, pushed it onto back opening. Took 5 minutes. Saved estimated $196 service call, parts,labor. (NOTE--I caution against using petroleum-based products like vasoline -- cause rubber to deteriorate. Hairdryer is the best solution.)

First I removed the pins to take out the dish rack. One pin on each side. Then I removed the old tube that slid off I then rubed a small dabe of lubercant on the new tube and connected it to each end opening. They slid on with litte force and no problem Thank for helping me to locate the correct replacement and for the fast delivery.

Shut off power to dishwasher. Removed front panel-4 screws on inside of door. Pull the wires off the switch. Remove the switch by taking out the 1/4" screws. Put wires on the new switch and replace the items you removed. Power up and test.

My daughter in law called me at work to say the dishwasher was broken. I am planning a kitchen remodel and was really bummed to hear that I was going to have to buy a new dishwasher before the remodel. I got home and found that the timer knob was split in half.

I opened the package with the knob in it. I pushed the knob in place on the timer and turned on my dishwasher! No tools, no time spent going to a repair place to find a knob, no repairman fees .... could not have been easier!

Dishwasher would not come on - broken Door Switch Actuator

  • Customer: Steve from Dublin CA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Socket set
  • 8 of 13 people found this instruction helpful
In diagnosing the problem, I pretty much took the entire door apart before observing that the door switch actuator was broken off ... I went online, logged onto PartSelect, found the appropriate diagram (which on their site is quite easy to do) and ordered the part online.

It arrived far quicker than I would ever have imagined possible and I had it installed within 2 minutes of the time I opened the package.

MrsS is VERY happy now that her dishwasher is 'back on the road'

It was a very small and inexpensive part, but PartSelect treated us as well as if we'd spent hundreds of dollars ... we could not be happier.

Dishes were not getting clean

I removed the clip holding the old tube in place, pulled it off where it was attached to the upper rack hub and removed the cone shaped coupler from the back end of it. Attached the coupler to the new tube, pushed the tube onto the hub and re-attached the clip. Started up the dishwasher after putting in a few glasses into the top rack and they came out clean! Amazing how functional parts make a difference. BTW, the new rubber tube arrived 2 days after I placed my order... very quick service. Thank you very much.

I heated the ends of the tube in hot water and slipped it on the round end first. I was then able to slip the other end on. The secret to doing this repair is working fast while the rubber is still pliable.

dishwasher was overflowing

actually my wife did the repair. she unsrewed the water sprayer and removed it, then unscrewd the star key screws and then replaced the seal. she put everything back the way it was and it is now ready to use and we no longer have the problem.
just a suggestion...if you take some baking soda and some vinager you can clean the drain out. just simply poor in the soda and then the vinager.and it will fiz cleaning your drain.
