Dishwasher stopped working, no power

  • Customer: Amy from Albany OR
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Wrench set
  • 7 of 8 people found this instruction helpful
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.

retainer nut split

Plastic parts on this Kitchenaid dishwasher suffer repeat wear problems from heat and chemical detergents. The retainer nut on the bottom wash arm split horizontally int the thread area, and during operation, the wash arm would rise up and hit the bottom of the lower basket so there was a worn groove in the wing on top of the nut and the dishes weren't getting very clean. Simple replacement, just screw the nut down. Also decided to replace the bearing ring right under the wash arm because it was getting pasted with white crust-like material from hard water and chemical detergent residues. I've dealt with PartSelect twice now, and they are fast and efficient. The online parts breakdowns are easy to follow.

We couldn't find the model # on the web site and took a chance ordering the rinse cap for other models of that brand. When it arrived within a few days,it was simply a matter of pushing the new rinse cap into position. The replacement was of higher quality than the original. Although the price seemed a little high, it enabled me to use a rinse again. We are very pleased.

Peeled off the overlay graphic. Cleaned off the adhesive residue completely using WD-40. Cleaned surface with parts cleaner for the new stick-on graphic overlay . Cover control buttons so they are now labeled clearly. Press stick-on applique in place & rub surfaces for adhesion.

Dishwasher leaking water

  • Customer: Evan from Hudson MA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 6 of 7 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.

The four Torkx screw studs on the black plastic control panel assembly broke off. The dishwasher was useless.

  • Customer: Andrew from Peachtree City GA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

I wish I knew a couple of things before doing this repair. 1) As you take off the panel, remove slowly and pay close attention to how the latching mechanism and spring works, 2) The mylar cover over all of the buttons (the panel that say s "Kitchenaid Superba, on, off, etc) does not come with the panel and costs $45 more. I was determined to save it. I used a flat Xactor blade to separate it from the broken control panel. As careful as I tried to be, I cut it a few times. Had I known I was dealing with a contact cement, I would have known to get it started and slowly peel it off. It will readhere to the new control panel without new adhesive. I replaced the vinyl waterproof cover for the circuit board, and installed the latching mechanism and spring. I positioned the new panel and screwed in the four screws. It works fine.

Did not have to do any repair, the parts for the dishwasher come with all the necessary parts and no tools were necessary. the wheels were snapped into place for the lower rack and the upper rack should needed to be place in the sliders. The Middle arm holder is not necessary as it comes standard.

Thermal fuse blew

  • Customer: Mike from Unionville CT
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 5 of 6 people found this instruction helpful
I had replaced the control board a month or two earlier. Then smelled plastic burning. I noticed the Sta-con connecters in the molex plug had burned - that's what took out the control board. The fuse assembly came with new connectors - so you know this is a known problem with the machine. If you're handy you can buy the thermal fuse from Newark for $0.88 and replace it by soldering - but you need to replace the sta-cons. They corrode and the bad connection causes the heat making the thermal trip.

worn out lower dishrack

I read the instuctions and snapped it together just following the pictures...reading only when the picture was not enough information for me. My husband thought I pulled it out of the box already put togethr, he did not know I put it together.

Plastic handle broke

Removed inside cover and inserted new handle on two tabs and attached latch. Slightly tricky to get 3 pieces in place and reattach cover without them moving.

Dishwasher often didn't fill with water.

  • Customer: Lorrin from Longview WA
  • Difficulty: Very Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers
  • 5 of 7 people found this instruction helpful
Remove power, either unplug the unit or locate and turn off the circuit breaker. There is power under the dishwasher even if it is not running.

Use the nut driver to remove both lower panels to gain access to the bottom of the dishwasher.

I suspected the overflow switch and used the ohm meter to discover the resistance of the switch, with no water in the washer, measured anywhere from a couple of ohms to 40 ohms or more and of course it should be less than one ohm.

There was no sign of any leakage or other problem so I wanted to keep the job simple and replace only the actual micro switch.

Problem! The micro switch is mounted on the back side of the float stem kit and visibility is severely limited. About all you can see are the switch terminals and the head of the phillips screw that holds the microswitch on the rest of the float stem kit.. You'll definitely need a small mirror.

I first pulled the wires from the microswitch terminals. Then I used a small phillips screw driver to remove the screw holding the switch and the first thing that happened is the small white float lever fell out. (I didn't know that it was even there because of the poor visibility. Ugly surprise!)

I spent 1/2 hour or more studying how the lever went in and found that the cirular end of the lever fits into a circular depression in the assembly body and was HELD IN BY THE SWITCH. (Now it's really getting ugly!)

The problem then is how to get the lever back in place and have it stay there while placing the micro switch back in place. There just isn't any easy way to do that. If only the switch and lever were one piece it would have been so simple.

Aha!

I placed and aligned both the lever and the microswitch on the float assembly body that I received. Using a couple of small pieces of electricians tape I taped the microswitch and lever together so they were one piece. Then I carefully (very carefully) removed the switch/lever
"assembly" that I made and eased it into position onto back side of the dishwasher float stem assembly body. When the switch is almost in place there is just barely room to get the tip of your finger in there and seat the rounded end of the lever into the depression. After seating the lever, carefully replace and tighten the phillips screw holding the switch in place. Then remove the electricians tape.

Replace the wires on the micro switch terminals, replace the front panels, put your tools away, and by golly, you're done.

This repair is not for the faint-hearted nor for those with fat fingers or who tend to be klutsy. It took me three or four attemps and a couple of hours to get the microswitch and float lever into place. But I think it was worth it as I didn't have to remove the dishwasher, play with water lines, or remove the full float assembly thus avoiding creating other problems that might likely result in water leaks and additional repairs..

If you decide to try this repair, good luck. It can be done but it is tough.
