pulled the dishwasher out, we found that the door balance link had broken, then ordered the link kit, which arrived the next day. replaced the spring and links, very easy to do after watching the how to video. I do reccomend ordering both springs and link kit together. we are very pleased with the results, the door works perfectly.

Followed the video except my model had a fixed panel 4inches wide at the top of the door on the outside which is held in by screws that don't need to come out. Secondly, the original RinseAid dispenser had wires for the Low RinseAid light on the control panel. The replacement had a big indicator that shows RinseAid level and I left the connected loosely secured, not connected. Worked the first time, no leaks because I was really careful seating the rubber seal on the replacement part onto the inside of the door. Cheers.

Rmoved and cleaned chopper screen. Reinstalled. Dishes cleaned for a week. Then! Dirty dished again. The pump seems to work fine. Probably the sensor for the condition of the water is bad. Toss up between more repair or a new dishwasher.

I put this unit in about 3 years ago and the brackets broke at the crease and the dishwasher fell forward. Found the right bracket and when it arrived looked a match. Checked link to video showing how to properly install the brackets. The original manufacturer never stated that the tab that goes through the frame is supposed to be bent 90 degrees to prevent the bracket from coming out. Thank you PartSelect for that video because I would probably end up ordering brackets again in a few years.

Your website was brilliant with the u tube video on how to fix it. Got the parts quickly and at half the price of Kitchenaid. And you included the white plastic pulley part for both sides with the string parts that holds the door up. Turns out that was what was broken on both sides. This is my first review ever and you get an A plus!

Turned off water to dishwasher and disconnected hot water and drain hoses. Removed to side screws and kick panel and pulled dishwasher from under counter. Removed old drain hose and fed the new one over to the drain. Reconnected the hot water and new drain hose. Pushed dishwasher under cabinet and screwed to cabinets. Ran the dishwasher and checked for leaks. Replaced kick panel.

Installing the new cord assembly took only 3 minutes after getting the built-in dishwasher out from under the counter. That was a thirty minute job. There was no way to slip my arm in to reconnect the coil balance spring. Thankfully the original installer supplied enough electrical and water line that did not have to disconnected.

Door would not stay in the upright position and would fall if not latched.

I removed the unit from under the counter and replaced the plastic and connecting cords to the springs, a ten minute job. The cord on the dishwasher is not made to take the strain and will break after some years of use. The kit came with all parts to repair the problem and there is a video on the site if you have a problem.
