I unfortunatly removed the whole base assembly to replace this motor. I wasn't sure what the original cause was. After watching your video I would have followed it and it would have been easier. All went well with not leaks and now we can sleep with the dishwasher on. Thanks

Screeching noise when running the dishwasher

Removed the dishwasher from under the counter, disconnected the copper water tubing, placed it upside down, removed the old pump and replaced with new. The only iffy situation is making sure the copper tubing doesn't kink when removing the dishwasher and putting it back into the cabinet. Very simple, my husband can fix anything. Your video was very helpful as well.

none of the spray arms rotated or sprayed water.

I checked on line and found evidence that my problem most likely was the failure of the circulation Pump Motor. I ordered the motor from Parts Select. When it arrived, a small section of the housing was damaged. I called for a replacement. The customer service agent was very helpful and the replacement arrived in less than 24 hours. I followed the video provided on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LjRxJy2IUE8 and the one on PartSelect. Both videos helps provide greater clarity for the whole job. The hardest part of the replacement was disconnecting and reconnecting the water supply line. These were my steps. 1. I turned off the electrical power and water supply. 2. I removed the screws holding the dishwasher to the counter top. 3. I removed the two screws holding the bottom access panel. 4. I moved the dishwasher out about one foot and disconnected the water supply line. (Fortunately I didn't have to disconnect the power supply and drain hose because there was enough slack in these lines.) 5. I moved the dishwasher all the way out from the counter and moved it over on the its side. 6. I removed the bolt holding the motor and the motor shield. 7. I removed the connector supplying power to the motor and removed the motor. 8. I removed the inside screen, cleaned and replaced it. I also wiped the other surfaced with a clean rag to ensure a proper seal for the motor. 9. I also applied vasaline to the rubber grommet on the motor to ensure against leaks. 9. I aligned the arrows on the new motor housing and impeller housing and installed the motor as shown in the videos. 10. I reinstalled the motor shield and retaining bolt. 11. I reconnected the water supply, stood the dishwasher upright, turned on the water supply and found I needed to tighten the water supply connection a little more to stop a minor leak. 12. I ran the dishwasher through a rinse cycle to ensure it worked properly and that there were no leaks around the newly installed motor. 13. I reinstalled the dishwasher under the counter top, reinstalled the screws holding it to the counter top and replaced the lower access panel. While this took me a few hours, it was well worth the effort because a repair person wanted $500 to do the job. Thus, I saved well over $300 after paying for the motor. Good Luck with your repair job.

purchased the correct seal, opened the door and pulled out the old one with one motion. marked the middle on the new one then installed with a little bit of pushing into the slot from one side to the other. making sure to tuck the ends into the recess at bottom of each end and clip off the excess and done! but make sure you replace the lock tab on the top when you replace the seal!!! it comes with it but you will have to slide the washer out a bit to push the old one out, There are no fasteners, Just push out and snap in and wala!! dry floor

Dishwasher leaking from bottom left side of door

  • Customer: Tom from New Fairfield CT
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Removed old gasket by pulling it gently from one side to the other, cleaned track where gasket sits, replaced with new gasket by folding in half and beginning in center at top of dishwasher, using strike plate as center guide, working left side then right side, applying pressure with fingers to push new gasket in channel. I did replace the strike plate, but the one provided did not match the one I removed, therefore, was not working properly, so I inserted the old one back in and everything works fine.....no leaks. The instructional YOUTUBE videos on the internet were a big help to watch before beginning the removal and install. Couldn't have been easier and I'm sure I saved about $150 in repair person costs for time and labor only.

The rubber gasket around the tub of the dishwasher had a couple of breaks in it due to catching it in the door when it came loose...it stuck to the door when we opened the door.

I removed the old gasket, cleaned the gunk out of the track with a hand-held steamer and a paper towel, and installed the new gasket in the track. I used a screwdriver in a few spots to make sure that it was inserted correctly...easy as pie!

The *great* PartSelect how to video convinced me that I could fix this myself. I removed the old, worn out door gasket, noting how the old one fit into the groove. I cleaned the groove really well to make sure I got any gunk out. I just pressed the new gasket into the groove with my fingers, then used a wooden chopstick to press it in securely. Super, super easy! .) (I did not need to replace the strike plateAnd, the hint about how fast standard shipping is was a nice touch. Thanks so much!

I replaced the door gasket. This was easily done. First I removed the old gasket by simply pulling it out, no tools needed. The gasket is simply resting in a slot. Then I installed the new gasket by pushing it into the same slot, after I had thoroughly cleaned it with vinegar. I did not need to trim the gasket at all; it fit perfectly.

Old gasket was leaking

Removed the old gasket by hand by pulling on the end of the gasket and slowly removing the gasket. Wipe the are with a clean damp rag to remove any soap or debris buildup. Follow the instruction that accompany the gasket, slowly insert the gasket and do not stretch the gasket as you push by hand into the slot. Run the dishwasher with a rag at the bottom. I had to run it twice, I believe the gasket has to relax and seal the door from leaking. GOOD LUCK, you probably saved yourself a lot of money in service repairs costs.
