So there is only one little trick to this install. The thing that they don't tell you is that you must do the install correctly the first time. There is a small retainer that is a small white button on top of a cylindrical part with three little slices at 120 degrees. This is the receiver for the wash arm and goes up inside the water supply hole. It MUST face slits down in the upper arm supply. This is a simple install. The next thing is the actual washing arm itself. The wash holes must face down. This part is installed up into the receiver button ONCE. If you have gentle hands you may get another shot. The button is the weak part. Good Luck.

Watched the video on your website. . .looked fairly straight forward. Ordered the part, looking forward to completing what I though would be a simple repair on Saturday, 2 February. My KitchenAid dishwasher was a bit different from the model in the video. To make a long story short, after about 30 minutes of trying to get the stainless steel "face" off the front of the dishwasher, I called PartSelect.com. . .was told that they were "a retailer not a technical company". The young lady on the line was very nice, and found the number for Whirlpool (KitchenAid) customer service. Called them. . .their technical support folks don't work on the weekend. Hmmm. . .isn't that when most "do it yourselfers" try to fix things? Anyway, my advice would be save yourself some time and frustration. . .call a repair service.

We were unable to get the top rack out of the dishwasher, but was able to put the small pine in the upper area and then place the arm and bracket in - snapped and now works well! We did look at the video but since our model didn't allow for us to take out the top rack based on the video demo, we did the next best thing. Thank You!

Slid the dishwasher out, removed the old hinge and replaced it with the upgraded kit. Appliance repairman wanted $168.00 to do the job and I repaired it for $30.00. Thanks for the great service

Actually your video lays it out very well. Went exactly as it shows and was very easy. I did not have to pull it out to the point I had to disconnect any water or electrical connections. Worked great! Replaced both sides as the new rollers turn and the old ones did not causing a horrible squeak when the door was opened or closed. Now, no noise at all.

Removed upper rack by squeezing rack stoppers with fingers, turned rack upside down, removed broken mount, installed new mount, placed rack in dishwasher and replaced rack stoppers. Note: This was not my major problem. My eye sight led me to Part PS393026 instead of PS393013. Fortunatley for me the parts were functionally interchangeable. However, the wrong part most likely will not last as long as the proper part. I can live with that as I am 89 years young.

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

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.
