Change to stainless steel panels

  • Customer: Owen from Richfield, UT
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 5 of 8 people found this instruction helpful
The dishwasher was so old that the new panel was too large. So I had to cut it down. This steel panel was so tough to cut that I used every cutting tool I had to trim it to the right size.

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!

Water leak from center of motor unit

  • Customer: TIM from TULALIP, WA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set
  • 6 of 11 people found this instruction helpful
Removed dishwasher, take to garage, removed lower rack to gain access to top of motor unit. Used star socket wrench to remove upper screws holding top of unit in. Disconnect wires, drain tube and counter weight. pulled motor unit out from inside dishwasher and placed on bench. Proceeded to disassemble motor. Some things were obvious, others not so. replaced old worn out parts with new, used a little lube (Vaseline) in places to assist in getting seals back in place. Instructions were of little help need to pay close attention when tearing unit apart. Reassembled with new seals, installed motor and re-installed dishwasher...NO LEAKS!! Wife and I happy.

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!

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.

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!

water tube completely cracked

I followed advice already posted and applied some liquid soap inside each end of the tube. Perfect!

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.

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.

Ready to slide in, except for removing rollers & bumpers from old rack & placing on the new rack. Husband did this very easily, in less than 15 minutes.
Dishwasher still in great working order after all these years, afraid to replace it with a lesser quality today.
Rack arrived in 4 days! Wonderful!
Only minor glitch...came white, instead of blue....but WHO CARES....fits beautifully. Very happy I decided to spend the money on the "old" dishwasher! (Would have done this sooner if I'd known parts were still available.)

roller axles had broken releasing wheels

  • Customer: Linda from Moundsville, WV

I ordered 8 new axles and used old wheels. I broke off the remaining axle parts left on the wire lower basket with just my hands, and then popped on the new axles. This was done without tools; just needed significant pressure to pop the axles onto the coated wire. The wheels popped onto the axles with a little pressure. Make sure you have the right side of the wheel out. I simply looked at the remaining working wheels before install began to make sure which side goes out. Very easy install.
