Kenmore UltraWash Dishwasher leaking

  • Customer: Andrew from Texarkana, TX
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 19 of 25 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)

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!

Just followed the instructions and used the old one as template to snap components together. Quality seems to be same as the original one and Part Select was some 15% plus less expensive then next best competitor

Upper nozzle "spinner" had degraded to the point where it no longer worked

  • Customer: Brian from Socorro, NM
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers

The only difficult part was taking out (relatively easy) and returning (hard) the clips from the rails. This required bending the end of the metal rails with pliers. Otherwise the dishrack just rolled in with no issues.

The spinner is somewhat lower than the one it is replacing, making the clearance over items in the lower rack to be serviceable but marginal.

The coating on the old racks had split causing rust

The new racks virtually slid right in! Very little work.
My dishwasher looks brand new! I should have ordered from you years ago!!!!

I am EXTREMELY satisfied, and will be back for more! I highly recommend PartSelect! The parts arrived quickly, and were a breeze to install.
THANKS!

broken wash impeller unit

  • Customer: James from Kronnenwetter, WI
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set
  • 15 of 17 people found this instruction helpful
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.

Latch was broken on the soap dispenser door

  • Customer: Douglas from Grand Rapids, MI
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers
  • 14 of 15 people found this instruction helpful
Turned off the power, just to be safe.

Removed the lower panel (4 screws). That made it easier to remove the lower 2 screws on the door panel. Slid the panel down slightly, then pulled off.

Removed the old dispenser - disconnected 2 wires, removed 6 screws, pushed in the plastic clips.

Pushed the new unit into place - clips click in. replaced 6 screws and 2 wires. Put the panels back on. Power on.

About 25 minutes.

Poor wash quality and excessive noise

I inspected the pump and checked on-line for instructions . I removed the lower panel and the lower dish rack . Removed the washer head from the top of the pump inside the dishwasher . I next unplugged the wiring after disconnectiong the power supply . Next step was to remove the drain hose from the bottom of the pump . Put a towel under it because it's full of water . Unscrew the nipple from the bottom of the pump to allow clearance so it may be removed thru the top . There are four plastic ears that rotate on the base of the pump . Move them into the outboard position and lift the pump out thru the top. I applied some liquid detergent where the pump seal goes and pushed it back in . Installation is the reverse of removal .

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
  • 13 of 15 people found this instruction helpful
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.

We noticed a small amount of water on the floor after a wash cycle

Directions were somewhat generic, but clear enough to figure out that I had to remove the toe plate and front cover below the main door to disconnect the two springs that held the door in tension. I then removed the old door seal (really a splash guard), and scraped off some scum. Then I pried apart a metal tab on each side of the door to facilitate lifting up on the two hinge rods on the door to get to the two corner water diverter pieces that really keep the water in the dishwasher. These two pieces deteriorate over time like the splash guard. The reverse assembly process was simple, NO LEAKS.

Dishwasher stopped working, no power

  • Customer: Amy from Albany, OR
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Wrench set

First turned off the power at the breaker box. I removed the screws on the inside of the dishwasher, then took off the front touch pad control panel. Removed the old fuse, tested it, orderd a new one. Left the DW dismantled while I waited for the new part. Then put it all back together. I have also replaced the latch on this same DW, but they were both pretty easy.

Soap scum on glasses

  • Customer: John H. from Greenfield, IN
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

Took off the front cover and scraped out soap deposits - probably consequent to wash water not being hot enough. Replaced the lower seal - used some automotive weatherstrip seal to cement it in place. Loosened the door per instruction sheet and replaced the water deflectors on each lower corner. Probably took me longer since I'm 81 years old and don't get up and down as well as I once did. Insulated the hot water tube so wash water is hotter than before. Works pretty good.

needed new seal below.

Dishwasher leaking water

  • Customer: Evan from Hudson, MA
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 9 of 10 people found this instruction helpful
Install was very easy. Used hands, pliers to pull out old gaskets. Wiped down old dirt in track. Started from (top) middle of door frame and used some soap with warm water to insert new gaskets. That's it! Kept old plastic brackets in place because it was too difficult to remove door springs. Old door seal and lower door seal were badly worn (gummy and falling apart) - Thought that was the issue with the water leaking. Nope, I was wrong. Looks like the tub seal, and the plastic bearing that is under the spray arm. Going to buy new instead of diving in the money pit. 10 years old, motor corroded from water over the years.

upper rack would not pull out easily

Replaced both "tracks" and the "wheels" .
Now it's like new....!!
My wife is so happy

Removed the track end caps from the tracks so I could pull out the tracks.
Removed the upper wash rack that holds dishes.
Only by removing this rack can the wheels be replaced, if I tried to replace them with the rack attached to the dishwasher I had to bend forward painfully.
Replace the old rales with new ones.
Attach new wheels to the upper rack in such a way as to allow the rack to roll inside the new rales.
Replace the end caps.
Hope it lasts another 10 years
