The repair is pretty straight forward. I ordered the part and thermal fuse. I removed the dishwasher door about 8 (T15) screws and then control panel. Before disconnecting wires I took photos as to ease reconnection. When panel was removed I pryed the board clips carefully and removed. I also removed switch board since it was soiled with smoke from thermal fuse that burned up old board, Cleaned the soot with alchohol. I did have a new panel which I ordered about 8 weeks earlier but washer was still starting with power button worn out until fuse burned up board so this was the time to replace. There were two minor problems. The top screw on the door had a pressed in nut that was inside door and was not reinsertable. I solved this by using a square plastic screw clip from my auto repair box and enlarged the hole for pop in clip,(worked flawlessly). After reassembly all lights on but start button not start dishwasher. I removed again and found the hole in switch board on right side was no longer tight allowing the board to slightly depress when power button was pressed. I resolved this with a small plastic wedge and a dab of hot glue. I believe the reason the hole was worn was the control case power button was worn out and for quite a while we had to press hard to start washer.The washer works like its new and is about 1000.00 to replace. Well worth the fix at about 210.00.

Ordered control panel and fuse kit which arrived in a very short time.Removed six screws to access the controls and pulled control panel out (it just snaps in) and swapped plugs (old to new panel).The wiring plug that came on the fuse kit wasn't the same but was able to remove wires from fuse and plug existing wires onto fuse and snap into place.Did not have to splice wires as was mentioned in directions.

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.

Motor worked but had become very loud

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers, Wrench (Adjustable), Wrench set

Watched the videos on Parts Select and one or two on other sites to get an idea how difficult the repair was. Ordered the part (circulation pump motor). I waited until I had the time to do the repair and a couple of extra hours just in case (ignore Murphy's Law at your own peril). The most time consuming parts were removing the connections (water supply and drain pipe) and dishwasher from the cabinet. Changing the motor was easy but make sure you have a nut driver with a long shank (8" or longer) to reach the nut holding the motor in place. After the repair, replacing the connections, and moving the dishwasher back into the cabinet, I left the kick plate off and ran the dishwasher to make sure the connections were water tight. Success. Dishwasher purrs like a kitten.

First I shut off the power and the water then I disconnected the drain hose. Then I removed the dishwasher from under the counter and turned it up side down. I remover the pump retaining screw turned the pump, removed it. installed the new pump reinstalled the retaining screw. and reinstalled the dishwasher under the counter. I reconnected the drain and water then turned on the power. the dishwasher is working great. Thanks PartSelect for the fast delivery and the right part.

The part was easy to install. But , you might have to unhook electrical, water, and drain. That is the time problem, part install is easy. All I had was a socket set, 1/4, drive fits. But a nutdriver would have been easier. WATCH the install video, great info!!!!!

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

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.

  • Customer: Malcolm from Cordell, OK

  • 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.

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.
