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
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
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

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

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.

Very loud noises during cycle

  • Customer: Ronald from Lynbrook NY
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Wrench(Adjustable)

The very first thing to do is watch the online video. That was the most helpful tool. Once we saw how it should be done. We removed the bottom plate and securing screws. Disconnected the water supply line, electric, waste line and pulled the unit on top of the tarp we set down. We then tuned the unit on its side, removed the old motor, greased the new gasket and re installed. The only problems we incurred were minor. The first being that there was still water in the waste line. That was a bit messy but able to deal with. The second was that the 3/8" nut driver was very difficult to get seated on the locking nut. My wife had to actually pull up on the plastic shield in order to insert the nut driver on the nut. Once that was done, it was a piece of cake. Saved ourselves over $700.00 with this repair. Thank you Parts Select.

I watched the top spinner arm in the dishwasher to see if it was turning. It was not. I figured the chopper assembly screen might be clogged, or the blade might have been stuck. I found the repair video from PartSelect on YouTube (it's also on the Chopper Assembly website) and followed the instructions. The chopper shaft was broken. I ordered the part, and thankfully it was on my doorstep the next day using standard shipping. Following the video's instructions, I had a working dishwasher again in about 15 minutes. Thanks.

Broken Left Side Door Spring

If I can do this you can too. I followed the instructions on this site but the only thing missing was how to pull out a dishwasher from the counter. The dishwasher is held by either two screws at the top that are into your counter but if you have granite they may be held in by two caps on the front side of the dishwasher that you just pop off and remove. Make sure you definately lowere the front of the washer by using a wrench and spinning down the height adjusters on the front of the frame. The next thing is a biggie, find the water supply and if you have a length of flexible hose great, just gently slide it out to reveal spring/pulley assemblies. I had a brass fitting that had to be loosened and pulled back to allow the washer to be pulled out. It was a compression fitting that was easy with a 5/8 wrench. Only slide it out enough to reveal the spring and pulley. Follow the replacement instructions then put it back the same way. Don't spin the height adjusters back up too far or ou will get steam condensation buildup. I did that. I figured I saved at least $200 by doing this very simple repair.

Broken string on door balance link

  • Customer: Jeff from San Diego CA

This is the third one that I have fixed in 2 months. This is a very poor design for such high quality, but expensive dishwasher. While installing the new balance link on the third one, I noticed that the design was flawd, so instead of putting more tension on the string than needed, I only looped the string around the bottom roller, instead of looping it in the "s" configuration as shown in most instructions. The door balance kit works perfectly fine this way with less tension. I could be wrong on this, but less tension on this string may help it last longer. These doors are heavy, and there isn't a real big difference from the "s" loop as recommended and the "L" loop as I did. Still works fine.

The door switch did not allow for the dishwasher to reset after washing. It was an easy fix, just remove the top trim panel (6 screws) pull out the switches, replace and reassemble. Just be aware that there two switches two replace.

The dishwasher lost all power. Once I confirmed that I had not blown a circuit breaker, I opened the dishwasher and disassembled the door panel. Fortunately, KitchenAide had provided a very detailed diagnostic chart behind the kick panel. It took me 15 minutes with a multimeter to determine that the TCO had blown. Once it arrived, it took 15 minutes to replace. All is well now.
