Watched the repair video on the internet link which made the repair very easy to understand.

Foam insulation between inner and outer door was glued or stuck so as to prevent both halves of the door to be separated.

  • Customer: Michael from Kingston, NY
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

I ended up physicaly breaking the foam to gain access to change the part. It was also quite hard to align the door halves and foam to put the door back together. Lots of foam to clean up on completion. If it were not for this foam feature the job would have been much quicker. Also the video let you to believe than the outer and inner door halves were one piece each and with htis machine this is not so. The control panel being on the top outside of the door also caused confusion especially in comparison with the simplicity that was shown in the video. May not have done this project myself if I had known the complications that were to come up verces to simple video.

Noisy growl in the circulating pump while dishwasher was running

  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Wrench set

The PartSelect video was quite good. I viewed it before ordering to determine if I was confident that I could do the repair and reviewed it again immediately before performing the repair as a refresher. Here are a few extra items of information: (1) There was plenty of extra length in the drain hose and electrical connections, so I only needed to disconnect the hot water supply before pulling the dishwasher out from under the cabinet. (Be sure the circuit-breaker is opened and test for dead on the dishwasher electrical supply.) This simplified later re-connecting and tightening and dealing with drips. (2)When I tipped the dishwasher onto its side, a bit more water than expected drained from the sump out onto the kitchen floor. I put 2 2x4 blocks under the dishwasher side to prevent the insulation from getting wet. (3)When loosening the 3/8" retention bolt and shield, I needed to use a flexible screwdriver shaft and a nutdriver socket on the end of the flexible shaft, since a brace under the dishwasher prevented a straight-on approach. (4)The guidance on the video showing the amount of wiggling to remove the old impeller/motor was valuable, since it provided confirmation that some repetition of the twist and pull motion was needed/expected. (5)Finally, it can be helpful to carefully track which is the old motor and which is the new, since if one inadvertently places them next to each other, the only identifiable difference may be a small amount of water in the old impeller assembly. (One would hate to inadvertently re-install the old motor.) Re-assembly was easy and straightforward.

Easy. I ordered a new replacement basket that is the same as my model.

Repair was straight forward. The video description was excellent. Pay attention to where the chopper assembly sits in the cavity, there is a second location closer to the impeller, but this is not where it goes.

I used pliers to remove the tabs at the ends of the sliding arms, removed the top rack, replaced the stationary wheel, and put everything back. Very easy.

I took out the old basket and popped in the new one. I was concerned that the size was the same as old one. No worries it was exact!

water leaking into dishwasher when not running

First I had to figure out what was going on. After the 2nd time of being gone for about a week we came home to water on the floor around the dishwasher. After 1st time I thought leak started after starting dishwasher. Checked all connections while running but found nothing. Wrote it off as an anomoly probably due to a dried up seal that reseated. Realized after 2nd trip when we came back and found water on the floor it was when dishwasher had not been started. Figured the water was leaking thru the water inlet valve. To determine that I pulled dishwasher out and removed hose off from outlet. With dishwasher off, water was dripping out of the inlet valve with water feed on. Realized then that if I left dishwasher off overnite there may be a fair amount of water in the dishwasher. I was correct. If dishwasher was used every day or every other day we never had problem. Only when we left for a long period of time did we experience the leak. Funny thing is the leak was within the plumbing but after the inside of dishwasher filled it would start overflowing. To repair, first turned off power and shut water off. Pulled dishwasher out for easier access. Then it was a matter of removing outlet hose using pliers to pinch clamp to open, then removing screw that held bracket in place (nutdriver). This allowed easy access to remove fitting from old inlet valve using adjustable wrench. Once off I put new teflon tape on and threaded fitting onto new valve using adjustable again. Reinstalled bracket using nut driver and put hose back on using pinch pliers. All was good after that. Even checked water in the dishwasher tub after a nite or 2 of no use and no water leaking in at all. Just like new.

Pulled two clips off the rack and removed the tine row. Put the new tine row in, had to put both clips on at the same time. Very glad that the clips we had were not bad, because if they were, we would have had to order new clips too. They might consider including that with the tine row. Otherwise a fairly simple job.

Replace Dispenser

  • Customer: Karl from Yucaipa, CA
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Watched the video several times and made notes. The video is excellent and by following the procedure outlined it was like painting by the numbers. I could have done the job in under an hour but I'm slow and doubled checked everything as I progressed. My only remark is to make sure after snapping the dispenser in the door make sure the unit is all the way to the right before tightening the screws.

Door fell down too easily

  • Customer: Mike from Chattanooga, TN
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

This repair was very easy to do. I was able to attach cord anchor to springs without pulling the dishwasher out more than about 10 inches. No disconnect of hoses were required since I had enough slack in the water line. Replacement of the Door Balance Link (big plastic part) was done with only 10 inches of the side exposed. Only one link was broken but the the other side made a groaning noise so I replaced both sides.

Door Balance issue- cable snapped

  • Customer: Martin from Great NEck, NY

Follow the online instructions- the only piece of information that was missing is how to deal with the tension in the line when you connect everything. I used a screwdriver for leverage and got things into place- BUT, I got the impression that this could be dangerous. Be careful. Otherwise, easy as you can imagine- also be careful pulling the dishwasher out from under your cabinet- you don't want to inadvertently disconnect something.

Nylon rope broke on one of the door balancers causing the door to drop quickly when opened

The repair went smoothly. I watched the repair video on this site which made the job much easier. The repair kit comes with 2 new balancers, so I replaced both of them while I had the dishwasher out from under the counter. Great experience using the PartSelect website. From locating the replacement parts, ordering, shipping and repair.

pulled the dishwasher out, we found that the door balance link had broken, then ordered the link kit, which arrived the next day. replaced the spring and links, very easy to do after watching the how to video. I do reccomend ordering both springs and link kit together. we are very pleased with the results, the door works perfectly.
