I replaced the arm and pivot parts received from Part Select. Check the drawing to make sure that you put the male pin and the female part in the correct position. In the Kitchenaid it was male pin inserted from the top through the arm into the female part. Cover the bottom of the washer with kithen towels or paper towels so that dropped parts do not enter drain holes.

Well, I pulled the washer out, but couldn't figure out what kept it from coming all the way out. So the repair wasn't that hard except working in the tight space to get the springs hooked back on the correct mounting "bracket". Otherwise, it was much easier than I had thought. I had to slightly trim the mounting brackets so nothing stuck out from under the edge of the countertop. Oh, and I used a ball pein hammer (sp?) to clean up the trim a bit.

1) cover botttom of dishwasher with large towel so you don't lose small part of arm kit down drain if you happen to drop it. 2) Lower bracket on dishwasher roof by pulling down out of snaps - lowers it about 1 to 2 inches to give your fingers room to snap in replacement arm. 3) Snap in replacement arm. 4) Re-snap in bracket

Food chopper ( plastic splines and plastic splines on motor worn down) motor replace. Bad thing is my motor was good and had to buy new motor because the $20 part comes with motor. But all in all easy fix. Never even turn off the water but did unplugged the electric. PS. Did tell wife it wasn't a garbage disposal. O she takes care of dishes, doesn,'t trust me too do them.

(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.

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.

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.
