Leaking drain hose

  • Customer: Mark from Hopewell Junction, NY
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Easy to replace this drain hose, but being the section that attaches to the pump, the dishwasher had to be removed from under the counter. Most of the time spent was disconnecting the supply, drain and electric then removing the dishwasher. Once out, the drain hose replacement should take 5 minutes or less. Very straightforward. Please remember to shut off electricity and water supply to the dishwasher before starting this project!

I followed another customer's advice and covered the interior of the dishwasher with a towel--and a good thing, because I did drop one of the small parts! I seated a flashlight in the upper rack, unclipped the top of the wash tower, placed the larger of the two connector parts through the bottom of the wash arm (openings facing down) and into the tower, then snapped the smaller connector part on. Clipped the tower arm back up and was done in less than 2 minutes. FYI--I couldn't figure out how to remove the upper rack (there's no instructions in the user manual) but really didn't need to after all and it was helpful for holding the flashlight.

When opened the door had to be carefully lowered, would not stay up!

Removed screws from under counter supports with Phillips head. With small flat head screwdriver removed the bottom plate, adjusted the support feet upwards . Very gently pulled out dishwasher from cabinet , about 2-2.5 feet exposing lower sides and springs and old balance parts. With a nut driver 5/16 removed first side old part keeping nut screw, placed the dual wheel part keyhole notch into the hole and positioned the bottom and loosely secured the lower portion back into the hole with the nut screw.Then with the cord replaced the narrow part over the metal holder the way the old one was. Carefully feed the cord over /under as before , tighten the nut screw into place take the ring end and and hook it on to the spring that is very tight and hard to pull into place. This was the hardest step as I needed help because of the heavy duty spring. My 7yo granddaughter hooked the ring as I need both hands on the spring. I checked the part for being screwed in correctly , then repeated on the other side. Carefully pushed the appliance back into cabinet making sure any cord, hoses had not been pinched, adjusted the front support legs back into place , secured the upper braces, replaced the lower plate and it is perfect! It works better than after I had a handy man do this a few years ago. I am a 64 yo woman!

The bottom of the utensil caddy in my Kitchenaid dishwasher was broken. We'd been using the few remaining sound compartments for forks, knives, etc.

The repair was simple: just replace the utensil caddy. But what I was amazed by, was the website that allowed me to type in the model number, find the part and receive it quickly by mail. I don't know why I waited so long to do this!

followed instructions to take off front panel. popped out the bad fuse assembly (need flat blade to pry it out) & popped in the new one. no need to cut the wires & use the supplied ones since the dishwasher had the correct ends. it is good to have the wire leads just in case.

A rat chewed three hoses, but luckily did not chew the water supply!

  • Customer: BARBARA from SLIDELL, LA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers, Wrench set

Start by removing the dishwasher from cabinet. Oh, don't forget to turn off water supply and also don't forget to install a plug on garbage disposer so when your other half uses the sink while you are outside you don't end up with a leak! Both supplied hoses installed easily, the third which I used semi flexible clear tubing with clamps deemed more difficult to bend, so I soaked the hose in very hot water to make it more pliable thus making the bends easily. I then had to wait until I was sure I captured the culprit before re-installing the unit.Your sales person was very informative and knowledgable and helped immensely!

I read information on this website about the function of the high limit thermostat. I found that it was the problem by disconnecting the two wires on the thermostat and straight wiring to bypass it. This allowed the machine to work properly so I ordered the high limit thermostat. To replace the part I used a screwdriver to remove the instrument panel and replaced the high limit thermostat by disconnecting the two wires from the old thermostat and connecting the wires to the new thermostat. I then replaced the instrument panel. My machine is working properly again..

Dishes did not dry

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.

Rivet holding the upper washer arm wore out causing the washer arm to 'fly' off.

Looked at the video - it was great. But I also checked the comments section. I removed the upper rack, unclipped the upper water feed and pulled it down about 2 inches. I placed a large towel over the lower washer and drain - because I wanted to be able to catch the rivet if I dropped it. I placed the rivet in place and snapped the upper arm in place. Re-secured the upper water feed at the clip, put back the upper rack, and set the rack stops back in. Took about 4 minutes.

Actually, I asked a handyman who was at my home to do it. Since the parts aren't labelled, there are no directions or graphics for installation and I'm not mechanically intuitive I tried fitting the parts together (outside the dishwasher). I put the small tack into its place and couldn't get it out. Using a pair of pliers I got it out but broke the two small parts. I ordered the part again and got it a day later. (Both times the package arrived very quickly.) When my handyman showed me it was actually pretty easy. I didn't realize the sheath that the arm fits into is mobile--even though several other people's installation instructions say it very clearly. I was envisioning sticking the tack or pin UP into the arm. It's the other way around. First, you pull down the sheath or whatever you call the piece that's against the top surface of the dishwasher. Second, you put the tack, point down, through the hole (facing into the dishwasher). Third, you put the second smallest piece through the hole in the arm from the side with the divots or vents. Finally, you snap the arm into place against the tack, writing side up, divot side down. It's smart to put a towel in the dishwasher so you don't drop either small part into the works.

Removed both baskets. Then removed 1 Phillips screw for upper rack water supply. Unscrew lower washer arm. Twist lower water supply clockwise to disengage from upper piece and from retainers. Remove 4 torx head screws and remove strainer assy. Remove 1 torx head screw from chopper cover and pull out chopper cover.. Pulled up on chopper screen and removed all broken pieces. Pulled on chopper itself to load the spring and put chopper in place. Make sure it goes in outer most slot. Reinstall in reverse order. Works perfectly.
