Well after trouble shooting several components , the fill valve, the check valve , the pump motor all it turned out to be is the supply line to the dishwasher. I had installed one of those lines with an anti flood check valve in the line. Thinking it was a smart idea so if I were not home it would keep from flooding my basement etc. even when you remove the line and run it into a bucket you still get flow. But unknown to myself a majority of your appliances do not work well with these lines because when the solenoid opens it causes a surge and the check valve tries to restrict the flow. After soapy of these surges the valve sticks . When I replaced the line with a standard supply line it solved the problem. So for about $15.00 you could save yourself a lot of headaches and money by replacing that first. I'm not saying it will be the solution but start there first even if your getting water flow through that line. By the way the manufacturer of those lines at least the one I bought less than 5 montages ago do not mention that on their package and by the time you come to that conclusion you may have spent a lot of money trying to fix your machine. I had three techs that couldn't figure it out. Also the machine I have is a kitchen aid but its a common problem on a lot of brands including washing machines for clothes.

(1) Remove lower 6-torx screws around outer inside edge of door (you do not need to remove the top torx screw as they house the control assembly. (2) Remove the outer door panel seperating it from the inside door insulation. (3) Locate the detergent dispenser and remove 6 hex screws, 2 solenoid wires and additional connector on the top right of the dispenser (rinse cycle). (4) If applicable, tape the connector you removed to the dishwasher panel as it will not be used with the new dispenser. (5) Insert the new detergent dispenser, making sure that it fits properly so that it does not leak. (5) Connect the solenoid wires. (6) With the front door panel still removed run through one wash cycle to ensure that there are no leaks around the dispenser. (7) When you are sure that there are no leaks, reinsert the door panel and tighten the torx screws.

  • Difficulty: Difficult

  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Socket set

the repair was difficult for us because we did not have the proper tools to remove the door panel screws and the soap dispenser. This is a job for an experienced do-it-yourselfer or for someone who wants to learn. we were successful after 2 trips to the hardware store and watching the Youtube video.

Bad bearings in motor (not pumping well) and snapped grinder drive shaft

  • Difficulty: Really easy

Pretty straight forward ...if you have torex bits/drivers then you will probably have what it takes. The install video is perfect for showing you haw to swap the grinder. most lower spray bars are mounted using a CCW thread on the pivot..so be aware!! If your motor is being replaced, leave that out before you swap the motor. Motor swap out took minutes once I had disconnected the various pipes and pulled the washer from under the counter. Easy ! Lubing the rubber seal on the motor with rinse aid made this part easy..good tip. The video shows how to install the grinder (the needle nose pliers is a good trick). Make sure there are no leaks underneath before you put everything back! The "hardest" part of the entire job was removal/reattachment of the water feed nut! I used a basin wrench for this. Who ever installed my dishwasher chewed up the drain hose rubber end fitting so it took a few goes to get it to grab and seal properly, check yours when you order the other bits...cheap insurance!

Cord broken

This was the second time, so it went smoothly. After releasing the appliance from the counter and drawing it out, threading the cord and attaching the spring was simple. The new fitting design seemed likely to last longer than the first two.

Exact parts I needed, and the video showed exactly the steps to complete the repair. ONLY way it could have been easier is if the guy in the video came to my house and did the repair himself. This site is now a perm bookmark!

Dishwasher not working due to a faulty high limit thermostat.

  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Using a Torx screwdriver, I removed the fasteners holding the control panel/latch section of the door on the dishwasher. I tested the high limit thermostat with a multimeter. Just two terminals, one being power in, the other power out. The part had what I have heard call a "high resistance open". In other words, the power was not getting from "A" to "B". Power in - not out. After cutting power to the unit, I removed the part (just pull it out of the retaining clip and pull the terminals from the part). After receiving the part...by the way, really fast delivery...I reconnected the part (it doesn't matter which wire goes where), pushed the part back into the retaining clip, replaced and fastened the control panel, then restored power to the unit. Runs like new.

THe chopper came off the shaft & the screen was plugged up.

  • Customer: Dennis from Silverdale WA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

The video on replacing the chopper assembly made it very easy. The only issue is that the video made it look very easy getting it into place. In reality, it took several tries to get it on the shaft & the screen into place. THE VIDEO SHOWED EXACTLY WHAT HAD TO BE DONE BUT that one step took SEVERAL attempts to get it in correctly. I finally got it in & reassembled & it works great now.

Noisy motor, worn out bearing

  • Customer: Daniel from Menlo Park CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set, Wrench set

I followed the attached youtube video. I did not have to disconnect the wire harness. Unplugging the power cord allowed the dishwasher to be removed for repair. The bolt holding the motor in place is somewhat difficult to get to because it is behind a shield. A socket with an extension is necessary. The motor required more effort to dislodge than indicated in the video. Once the bolt is removed and the motor is rotated, wiggling and pulling was necessary to break the seal loose. Be sure to line up the arrows on the motor and collar before reinstalling.

Upper Wash Arm Came Off

  • Customer: Colin from Hudsonville MI
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
With a flat blade screwdriver, pry up gently on the Upper Rack Track, pull out the end caps, and remove the rack. Pull the Feed Tube down out of the clip in the ceiling, Install the Upper Wash Arm on the Feed Tube, insert the Push-In Screw from below and push the Screw Cover down from above to snap everything together.

I also replaced the Lower Spray Arm Seal. First remove the Lower Dish Rack then remove the Lower Spray Arm by grasping the Lower Spray Arm Support/Hub and twisting the arm counter-clockwise to unscrew it, Pull the arm and hub out, now twist the Rear Feed Cap clock-wise to dislodge the Feed Tube and disconnect the cap. The seal is underneath.

dishwasher wouldn't start

  • Customer: sue from wilmington DE
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

It didn't make sense that the dishwasher suddenly stopped working so I "googled" and found the part online - viewed the video on repair and figured "I can do this". It was easy. Wish I had a second pair of hands to help, but other wise, easy. I'm a gal that can usually figure things out myself. It's working beautifully and cost only $30 to fix VS calling a plumber or getting a new dishwasher.
