It was a fairly easy repair job after we got the dishwasher out of its space in the counter. To accomplish this make sure that the water line is shut off and disconnected and allows enough movement to move the washer out at least far enough to expose the balance cord and spring. Ensure that the electrical connection line shut off and is free enough to allow movement of the washer. Finally, ensure that the dishwasher is lowered, if necessary, to clear any obstructions, top and bottom. Move the washer out far enough to work on her balance cord and get on with the repair job.

A few weeks ago there was a grinding noise when running the dishwasher. We ignored it. About a week later the top rack stopped getting any water. I cleaned the chopper assembly but the problem came back after a week. Looking more closely, the chopper was damaged and the impeller had been stripped (p

The video is very helpful for replacing the Chopper Assembly. For the Impeller, reference the video for replacing the motor: http://youtu.be/pAKz1gMUWDA But once you have the motor removed and you identify the impeller, you need to insert a tool into the back of the motor to hold the impeller still from the back while you unscrew it in the front (I used a small wrench, a thin screwdriver would be ok too). Then, just screw on the new piece and follow the rest of the video to put everything back together again. Nothing this stay-at-home mom couldn't handle while the kids watched a tv show.

Soap dispenser door won't open

This repair is actually easy to do however the problem I had was removing the door. It seems the kitchen aid engineers decided to have the sound insulation installed with adhesive. This means the door doesn't just easily remove like the video shows. I had to carefully scrape the back side with a 4" drywall tape knife. It's glued on both sides and the insulation covers the soap dispenser. Result was I had to carefully cut an access to the dispenser with a box cutter to get access. Be careful not to cut the dispenser wire when you make the opening. I would also cycle the washer before you reinstall the door as I didn't get mine tight enough and it leaked so I saved a bunch of time. I also changed the control unit because it is often the cause of the problem and since this my daughters who lives 10 hours a away. I decided it was a good investment. Finally Parts Select is great received the parts next day great service kudos to them.

To avoid disconnecting hoses, dishwasher could only be moved about 3/4 out from the cabinet. Stretching springs to allow connecting opposite end of cord to connection point required me to use locking wrench to grab end of spring and stretch it far enough to allow plastic loop to attach to door bracket.,. Video shows dishwasher on a platform with easy access to springs and cord connection points, which made this job much easier.

I received the gasket promptly. The instructions were easy to follow. We did not use the dishwasher for 24 hours as instructed. It has worked perfectly for 2 weeks. I feel I saved $200 by purchasing the gasket on line and installing it myself.

Replacing this motor is fairly simple. I had installed the dishwasher 5 years ago with longer water supply and drain lines - just in case. So after disconnecting power lines and mounting screws all I had to do was turn the dishwasher on it's side. Power to the motor is a simple disconnect connection. The motor is held in place by a 3/8" screw, you'll need a long, about 6", nut driver to get to the screw. Once the screw is removed you can rotate the motor counterclockwise then pull out. Mine took some effort. There will be a screen that will probably be knocked loose. The screen can only been installed one way and there is a slot that lines up with the inside of the dishwasher motor housing. Mine was clogged with some dish washer soap so I cleaned it before placing it back in. After that it is just a reverse of the install. Took me a little under 45 minutes start to finish.

After attempting to change the "high limit switch" to no avail, I researched further and found that doing a reset/reboot cured the problem.The instructions for the high limit thermostat were a bit off, as there was no screw to remove, only a spring like bracket that I did not try to figure out. The work area is so tight if the dishwasher is not removed and tilted that I thought it best to look for alternatives prior to pulling it out and disconnecting power and water. So ... voila, it's fixed with a reset only. Reset is accomplished by pushing two buttons 5 times. "high Temp Scrub then Heat Dry, high temp scrub then heat dry etc, until you click them both 5 times.It will go through cycles for a few minutes, then after done, run the dishwasher as normal and test if fixed. There are a few different ways to do it depending on the model.
