Everything worked perfectly---thanks to the suggestion of your call center agent. She suggested that since the replacement door handles were no longer available, I should consider repainting them--it worked like a charm. Please tell her she was a life saver. We rent that house in Fl and my returning tenants had complained about the discoloring refer handles. Thank you

Used duct tape to hold the old tube in place until I had a chance to see if the part was available online. Found it, ordered & received it the very next day. (Great service!) Removed the old tube which was already half off once I removed the duct tape & slipped the new tube on. A little trouble at the rounded end, but I used a screwdriver handle to kind of mold that end round & then slipped on.

Water would not enter the dishwasher.

Replacing the water inlet valve was as simple as unplugging the dishwasher, turning off the water, removing the dishwasher panels, removing the old water inlet valve by removing the 2 screws holding the valve, and disconnecting from the valve the two-wire clip, the water-in hose, and the water-out hose. I could then reverse the order of these steps to install the new valve.

I had initially tore into the dishwasher to determine the problem. This process took me about an hour to determine the problem was the water inlet valve. I also checked the float switch to make sure that was not the problem. So having done all the preliminary foot work, all I needed was a new valve. I also purchased a new brass elbow to go on the new valve (about $2.50).

I reconnected the old valve so I could turn the water back on, ordered the new part and waited. Counting the day I ordered the part, it arrived on the 3rd day. Once the new part arrived I had the new part installed in less than 30 minutes.

I always hate repairs where plumbing is involved because once you take something apart and put it back together, it usually leaks. Maybe I got lucky this time because nothing leaked once I had it back together.

replaced bottom dishrack on dishwasher and had ultimately to replace the wheels

  • Customer: Mameve from Cambridge, MA
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers
  • 4 of 5 people found this instruction helpful
Tried to get the old axles and wheels off old dishwasher but couldn't so ordered new axles and wheels--not easy to put on--needed pliers--but the worst part is the wheels don't glide as well as the ones we couldn't get off the old rack so-particually when the bottom rack is loaded--it is very hard to push in the rack and pull it out. You practically have to lift it. Very disappointed as in the hopes of making an improvement (replacing old rack with broken pieces that held dishes) it is now worse!

original water tube had cracked /dishes were not clean

This repair was just so easy. I am a 65 year widow and did not want to call repair for something that I thought I could do-ordered the part and it was delivered in two days. I rubbed a small amount of vaseline around both the tube's ends, used the hair dryer to heat slightly, attached one end of the tube to the upper spray arm receiver and the other end to upper wash assembly and job completed. My savings was probably $65.00 or more for no service call. Works great and dishes are clean again.

the tube was completely split open

Piece of cake --after having read what others had suggested on your webpage, I used the heat from a hair dryer which made the piece pliable and simple to fit into place. It took less than five minutes. When my husband came in from work, I proudly told him the part had arrived and it was fixed! Taa Daa!

Washer was not agitating

  • Customer: Rod from Sisters, OR
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers

Removed the washer from the cabinet, although the repair kit could have been replaced without this step. However, it still made it easier. Removed the spray arm assembly and the top cover to the motor. I had to block the motor to keep it from turning while I unscrewed part number 11. The rest was very self explanatory. The "impeller" was seized onto the motor shaft (20 years old) so I had to use a chisel to break what remained off, then clean some corrosion from the shaft. The repair kit worked and the pictorial parts diagram that came with the kit was very clear. Bottom line: "Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!" Great web site for diagnosis and parts diagrams!

The bumpers on the bottom rack of the dishwasher broke and the rack would slide out everytime I opened the door.

I took the first bumper, I had bought two, and tried to snap in on to the rack. It was too rigid and broke.

My son heated the second one in hot water and it snapped right on.

At least I know the secret to installation, but now I need another bumper.

Bottom rack would not roll easily and often came off track

  • Customer: Thomas from Great Falls, VA
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

I just pulled out the rack and removed the eight existing roller wheels and roller axles. I was able to remove most of the roller axles with my fingers but needed pliers to remove a couple of them. I then snapped the new roller axles onto the rack and then the roller wheels onto the new roller axles and put the entire rack back in the dishwasher.
The lower rack now rolls smoothly and consistently no matter how many dishes we have piled into it. Also, it has not come off the tracks since replacing the roller axles and roller wheels.

Plastic roller axles were broken.

Snapped in new ones (8) by hand. I was amazed
how fast I was able to find this part online and the
ordering was easy and in a few days the parts
arrived. No hassle trying to explain to anyone what
part I needed. There were pictures of all parts
available. Ordering online, especially if you
know what you are looking for, is really the way to go.

I am a 73 year old lady. My nephew found the torn rubber water delivery tube after a repairman had found nothing. I looked up the model number, contacted Part Select by e-mail, ordered the part ($15.++ for cost and delivery), read reviews and found tipe for installation. Total time spent on installation was less than ten minutes. The round tube, with a smidgen of liquid detergent inside each end of the tube, fits onto the water line; the other end of the tube will squeeze flat with little effort, and fits onto the apray arm.
