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.

I verified there was power present. Unplugged power cord. Then identified the thermal fuse from schematic on control board and found it to be open via multimeter. I then received the new thermal fuse, installed it, and the unit works like new.

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.

The movie on the web site is excellent but that model does not have the foam insulator. The insulator is glued to the door and the front panel forming an almost impenetrable sandwich. You will have to make some sort of a knife with a thin 2 foot long handle. Pry the top of the insulation away from the front panel and use the homemade knife to cut the glue. To access the soap dispenser cut a rectangular hole in the insulation where it covers the dispenser. Then follow the video. The rest is easy.

I had to pull the dishwasher out from the cabinets about 12" in order to pull the old seal off. Installing the new seal was quite easy, since there is no adhesive necessary. Start at the top center of the replacement seal and snap the groove of the seal which is hard plastic, into the mating parts of the tub and the tub trim. Its a little hard to explain, but pay attention to how the original seal (W10179427) was installed.

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.

Replaced Detergent/RinseAid Dispenser

Watched the partselect video... but there is an error. The dishwasher had a foam core glued between the stainless door and door panel that wasn't shown in the video. After removing the six screws from the inside of the door, a hairdryer was used on the door panel to release it from the foam core. Then a cutout was carefully made in the foam over the dispenser. After replacement of the dispenser, the cutout foam was glued back into the foam core, and the panel was replaced with the six screws.

Machine would shut down during the wash cycle.

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..
