Rivet holding the upper washer arm wore out causing the washer arm to 'fly' off.

Looked at the video - it was great. But I also checked the comments section. I removed the upper rack, unclipped the upper water feed and pulled it down about 2 inches. I placed a large towel over the lower washer and drain - because I wanted to be able to catch the rivet if I dropped it. I placed the rivet in place and snapped the upper arm in place. Re-secured the upper water feed at the clip, put back the upper rack, and set the rack stops back in. Took about 4 minutes.

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.

Remove old seal. Clean area. Test fit new seal (it snaps into a slot). Starting at middle top, install seal by snapping into slot. Will have small excess at bottom of seal. Make sure it curves to follow bottom of door. Trim off excess seal. Shut the door. Aha! Success.

Reviewed info from prior users and sat down with a cup of hot coffee to review needs. Found it easy to strip out old door gasket. Compared it to the new gasket and made sure i understood which side went into the channel.Then cleaned up that channel with soap and rinsed and dried it carefully. Installed new gasket in just a few more minutes. Did not need the new strike plate. And as part of the cleanup and test I added 2 cups of vinegar which removed some of the build up of calcium deposits. I'll do that again another time or two until it cleans it all out. Voila, dry floor and a happy family! Many thanks, Dave

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.

Simply replaced lower dish rack in dishwasher.

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.

Read this entire instruction before starting. The old gasket is pressed into a slot, so to remove the old one simply requires that you grab one end and pull it out, but first only pull a few inches of the gasket so that you can note its orientation in the slot since the gasket is not symmetrical. Now remove the old gasket and wipe the slot and surrounding surface clean of any detergent residue with a damp sponge. Next, start the new gasket at BOTH ends (ensure that they start at the same location as the old one) and press the new gasket lightly into the slot, working your way all the way around. Ensure that it is even and partially seated. There will be no extra length so if you have any slack, you have the gasket stretched. DO NOT cut or trim the gasket. Once everything is partially pressed in place and even, go back and press the gasket firmly into the slot. When complete, the door will need to be closed/latched with slightly higher pressure than normal the first few times but after a few cycles, the gasket will be fully seated and the door will close normally. Some versions of this dishwasher may need the strike replaced but this particular one did not.

brocken door balance cord

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.

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.
