Broken Latch on Detergent Dispenser

  • Customer: Jennifer from Montgomery Village MD
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers
  • 29 of 36 people found this instruction helpful
I had a broken latch on my dispenser, so had to replace the entire assembly. This is an easy repair, as the other posts have indicated. You do, however, really need a nutdriver. I undertook this project without a nutdriver and not only did it take ten times longer than it should've, but the dispenser leaked after my first attempt because I could not get the dispenser screwed in good and tight. All worked perfectly once I got the right tool, duh. The repair is done as other posters have indicated: unplug the machine, remove outer panel(s), remove six mounting screws, detach the wires attaching to the assembly, and reattach them to the new piece. **One thing not noted in other reports: there is a white plastic electrical connection on the lower right of the dispenser assembly. Mine had red wires attaching to it. To remove this from the old dispenser, you pull it straight out toward you, like a drawer from a dresser, and slot it into the new dispenser the same way. It would be quite easy to break this piece trying to get it out any other way, so use some caution.

Inlet valve was leaking from crack in brass fitting

  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

Removed the lower panels from beneath the dishwasher door. 4 screws. Turned off the water.

Removed one screw holding the inlet valve to the side rail of the dishwasher. It was attached to the hot water line and then the washer water input line. Removed the electrical connector..Pull straight off, and use a pair of pliers to open the squeeze clamp on the washer hose. The hot water supply hose has a brass fitting to loosen and remove.

Replaced the inlet valve, reconnected the electrical and also replaced the hot water line from under the sink to the washer. Used a new braided 5' hose with fittings. Used teflon tape on the screws and did not over tighten the brass fittings.

Turned on the hot water supply and checked for leaks. Operated the washer and checked for leaks. Replaced the lower covers.

Replaced the bottom door seal. Found the job to be very easy. Just slide the bottom seal off, slide the new seal on, and it fixed the leaky problem.
The part was shipped immediately making the total experience worth while.

Top Water Tube hose broken.

  • Customer: Cathy from SANDY UT
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 23 of 24 people found this instruction helpful
The part came so fast without extra shipping. It took only 10 minutes to replace water tube and upper spray arm. I only had to remove one screw. Replaced with new parts and reinstalled screw. It was easier and cheaper than calling a repairman.

Water leaking out under door

  • Customer: Charles from Brooklyn NY
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required:
  • 22 of 24 people found this instruction helpful
The pump outlet gasket was sticking out and a screw was missing from the pump outlet housing. This was causing water to flood out under the door.

Once I removed the pump outlet housing I saw that the gasket was out of place almost all the way around. I cleaned around the housing, replaced the gasket and the missing screw.

You need a Torx T-15 for this repair. Note that all of the screws on the housing were loose so you might need to tighten them from time to time.

Be careful not to drip a screw when you are installing it since it's a real hassle to fish it out from under the screen.

Once everything was tightened up, the wash pressure seemed to be much higher.

Dishes not rinsing well, particles left on dishes

  • Customer: Steven from Missoula MT
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Wrench(Adjustable)
  • 21 of 25 people found this instruction helpful
As others have described, this replacement was very easy. The new spray arm is solid plastic instead of rubber (which had deteriorated and was the part that needed replacing). So it should last longer.

You have to keep and reuse the mounting bracket that attaches the spray arm to the upper rack, so don't throw that away!

The replacement was super-easy, and as others have commented, the dishes haven't been this clean for a long time. Well worth it.

Bottom rack dish holders rusted

Put wheels on new bottom rack and put back in dishwasher. Like that the back racks can lie down for pots and large dishes. Removed the the wash arm and replaced the ring. Too easy

No power to panel and dishwasher

  • Customer: Matt from Encinitas CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 17 of 18 people found this instruction helpful
I removed the screws from the inside of the door which revealed the elctrical panel and seperate fuse assembly. I simply pulled the old fuse off the wires and pushed the other onto the wires. I then held the door onto the face of the dishwasher while reinstalling the screws. Very easy and inexpensive repair.
Plesae note: I decided to repair the dishwasher myself after calling a repair guy who, after inspection, told me the electrical panel had to be replaced for a cost of $409.00, I decided to see if it was a simple fuse. (Which it was)

Top Spray Arm was hitting and would not rotate properly

  • Customer: Richard from Buda TX
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Wrench set

The mounting bracket was broken.

The parts ordered were a direct match due to the fantastic pictures supplied on this site.
A dealer wanted to order it and then I would have had to drive and pick it up - no way.

partselect.com first time user - very easy.

Door handle broke and could not open the dishwasher

  • Customer: Vincent from Ruskin FL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers
  • 20 of 29 people found this instruction helpful
Managed to open the dishwasher without breaking anything else! 1ST TURN OFF THE POWER SUPPLY AT THE BREAKER BOX,SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT! Took the kick plate off at the bottom, unscrewed the bottom of the front panel and removed the interior door screws. Removed top panel with the circuit board attached, be very careful doing this as you can destroy the circuit board if it cracks or bends.Unplug it and set it aside. remove the broken door handle and insert the new one with the simple metal and spring mechanism. put it all together in reverse order. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN ANY OF THE SCREWS OR YOU CAN STRIP THEM AND HAVE MORE PROBLEMS! I have to say I was surprised how quickly the part arrived during some of the worst weather conditions up north. Very pleased!

Kenmore UltraWash Dishwasher leaking

  • Customer: Andrew from Texarkana TX
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 18 of 24 people found this instruction helpful
My wife noted wood floor bucking up around dishwasher - pulled dishwasher out from counter, tipped it on it's side, looked underneath, & noted slight corrosion on top of motor -

Took motor/pump assembly completely off of dishwasher (comes out from the bottom) by flipping four little plastic cams on motor to the side & then took pump apart (starting at top & working down) till I got to the impeller/motor shaft seal.

Found plastic impeller worn through into two pieces & little spring thingy under the grinder-upper thingy broken.

Ordered Drain & Wash Impeller kit - got it a few days later - installed (new motor shaft seal didn't seem to be quite the same as far as fit, so I didn't use it - just used the impeller & new spring thingy)

Put it all back together & runs fine - no more leaks - (now just have to figure out what to do about warped wood flooring - oh well, it's old & is probably time for whole new kitchen floor anyway)

Note: This particular Kenmore model made by Whirlpool - takes Whirlpool parts.

Note 2: Needed only screwdrivers to do this whole thing - would have been a really quick/easy repair if I had known what the problem was & how it all comes apart. took a little time to figure it out. (I am a rank amateur at dishwasher repair)

dishwasher not draining and overflowed

  • Customer: christopher from Spring TX
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set, Wrench set, Wrench(Adjustable)

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.

Removed the 4 screws that hold on the 2 lower front covers. Removed the old broken spring with just my fingers. Put the new spring in, again, with just my fingers. Put the two covers back on. I didn't even need to slide the unit out from under the counter!

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.
