I received the gasket promptly. The instructions were easy to follow. We did not use the dishwasher for 24 hours as instructed. It has worked perfectly for 2 weeks. I feel I saved $200 by purchasing the gasket on line and installing it myself.

A few weeks ago there was a grinding noise when running the dishwasher. We ignored it. About a week later the top rack stopped getting any water. I cleaned the chopper assembly but the problem came back after a week. Looking more closely, the chopper was damaged and the impeller had been stripped (p

The video is very helpful for replacing the Chopper Assembly. For the Impeller, reference the video for replacing the motor: http://youtu.be/pAKz1gMUWDA But once you have the motor removed and you identify the impeller, you need to insert a tool into the back of the motor to hold the impeller still from the back while you unscrew it in the front (I used a small wrench, a thin screwdriver would be ok too). Then, just screw on the new piece and follow the rest of the video to put everything back together again. Nothing this stay-at-home mom couldn't handle while the kids watched a tv show.

It was a fairly easy repair job after we got the dishwasher out of its space in the counter. To accomplish this make sure that the water line is shut off and disconnected and allows enough movement to move the washer out at least far enough to expose the balance cord and spring. Ensure that the electrical connection line shut off and is free enough to allow movement of the washer. Finally, ensure that the dishwasher is lowered, if necessary, to clear any obstructions, top and bottom. Move the washer out far enough to work on her balance cord and get on with the repair job.

Access to springs

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set, Wrench(Adjustable)

To avoid disconnecting hoses, dishwasher could only be moved about 3/4 out from the cabinet. Stretching springs to allow connecting opposite end of cord to connection point required me to use locking wrench to grab end of spring and stretch it far enough to allow plastic loop to attach to door bracket.,. Video shows dishwasher on a platform with easy access to springs and cord connection points, which made this job much easier.

Ordered the part. It arrived in less than two days. Turn the power off for safety.You're done. You may have to loosen the drain line or water line to allow space to slide dishwasher far enough out to allow access to link kit. Easy repair. Video on your website gave detailed instructions. Thanks.

1. Removed front panel. 2. Backed out retaining screws at top. 3. Backed up leveling feet. 4. Pulled out dishwasher but seemed tight so stopped not wanting to break electrical or water line. Made very short space in which to work. Insulation batting was binding at top between DW and counter opening so tended to bunch up. 5. Spring at rear had flown off, so had to reattach while not being able to see. 6. Spring and new line were very tight so grabbed line with channel pliers just ahead of spring to get enough slack to get line over guide wheel. 7. Moved DW back into place and reattached with screws. 8. Had to play with leveling feet to get gap the same on each side of DW and cabinet opening. 9. Reattached lower front panel. 10. It has worked great.

I watched the video on the web site and made the very simple repair. It was so easy that almost anyone could do it. Also, the parts arrived 2 days after I ordered them. The whole process was very easy and saved the cost of a service call.

Removed screws from under counter supports with Phillips head. With small flat head screwdriver removed the bottom plate, adjusted the support feet upwards . Very gently pulled out dishwasher from cabinet , about 2-2.5 feet exposing lower sides and springs and old balance parts. With a nut driver 5/16 removed first side old part keeping nut screw, placed the dual wheel part keyhole notch into the hole and positioned the bottom and loosely secured the lower portion back into the hole with the nut screw.Then with the cord replaced the narrow part over the metal holder the way the old one was. Carefully feed the cord over /under as before , tighten the nut screw into place take the ring end and and hook it on to the spring that is very tight and hard to pull into place. This was the hardest step as I needed help because of the heavy duty spring. My 7yo granddaughter hooked the ring as I need both hands on the spring. I checked the part for being screwed in correctly , then repeated on the other side. Carefully pushed the appliance back into cabinet making sure any cord, hoses had not been pinched, adjusted the front support legs back into place , secured the upper braces, replaced the lower plate and it is perfect! It works better than after I had a handy man do this a few years ago. I am a 64 yo woman!

Replaced Detergent/RinseAid Dispenser

  • Customer: Ronald from Bradenton FL
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

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.

Rinse aid dispenser failed

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.
