simply replaced with new basket! The replaced basket was way more efficient that the old one! It has drop down covers so that I can place my silverware in it without puddling water on certain utensils, such as gravy ladels, etc. Now, I am really glad my old one broke!

Except that the original has a nice handle attached, which this one does not, it is identical. We'll have to hire someone to transfer the handle to the new one. Installation time was approximately 30 seconds.

A rat chewed three hoses, but luckily did not chew the water supply!

Start by removing the dishwasher from cabinet. Oh, don't forget to turn off water supply and also don't forget to install a plug on garbage disposer so when your other half uses the sink while you are outside you don't end up with a leak! Both supplied hoses installed easily, the third which I used semi flexible clear tubing with clamps deemed more difficult to bend, so I soaked the hose in very hot water to make it more pliable thus making the bends easily. I then had to wait until I was sure I captured the culprit before re-installing the unit.Your sales person was very informative and knowledgable and helped immensely!

Tore the cabinet seal while installing the dishwasher.

  • Customer: James from Orlando FL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Wrench(Adjustable)

I had to pull the dishwasher out from the cabinets about 12" in order to pull the old seal off. Installing the new seal was quite easy, since there is no adhesive necessary. Start at the top center of the replacement seal and snap the groove of the seal which is hard plastic, into the mating parts of the tub and the tub trim. Its a little hard to explain, but pay attention to how the original seal (W10179427) was installed.

Dishwasher making vibrating noise

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.

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.

Motor worked but had become very loud

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.

Dishes were not getting clean or intermittently getting clean

Well after trouble shooting several components , the fill valve, the check valve , the pump motor all it turned out to be is the supply line to the dishwasher. I had installed one of those lines with an anti flood check valve in the line. Thinking it was a smart idea so if I were not home it would keep from flooding my basement etc. even when you remove the line and run it into a bucket you still get flow. But unknown to myself a majority of your appliances do not work well with these lines because when the solenoid opens it causes a surge and the check valve tries to restrict the flow. After soapy of these surges the valve sticks . When I replaced the line with a standard supply line it solved the problem. So for about $15.00 you could save yourself a lot of headaches and money by replacing that first. I'm not saying it will be the solution but start there first even if your getting water flow through that line. By the way the manufacturer of those lines at least the one I bought less than 5 montages ago do not mention that on their package and by the time you come to that conclusion you may have spent a lot of money trying to fix your machine. I had three techs that couldn't figure it out. Also the machine I have is a kitchen aid but its a common problem on a lot of brands including washing machines for clothes.
