These guys were GREAT!!! Called and the individual immediately was able to identify the part number and indicated they had the kit in stock. The parts were shipped that day and arrived three days later. Didn't take long to put the new arm on and was up and running. I'll definitely use them in the future.

I removed the front wood door panel and then removed the control panel so that I could see the control circuit board. I originally thought the control panel pads where the problem since they were worn so I replaced that by doing the above and then removing the circuit boards and re-installing them into the new control panel. Turns out that did not fix the problem. The circuit board ribbon cable was burnt at two areas so I ordered a new cable along with a new circuit board just in case. BTW the circuit board is located under the control panel and has the buttons that are engaged when one presses the pads on the control panel. Once I received the parts I removed the old ribbon cable and installed the new one, a very easy process. I checked the circuit board and all the buttons worked ao I just re-installed everything back in place. Works like a charm.. I saved myself over $250.00.

Took off front door panel, unscrewed old unit. installed new unit. hooked up wires. replaced front door panel. Reinstalling the front door panel was the most time consuming. it has to slide in a certain way. also, I thought the dispenser wasn't sitting properly, so I took the whole thing apart again, but it is supposed to sit at a slight angle. I basically did the job twice in a half hour.

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.

disassembled the touch pad by removing the screws holding it in place, carefully removing the latch, replacing the wire connectors one at a time on the control module, remounting the control module, and re-attaching the touch pad. Considered it relatively easy procedure. Time element of 15-20 minutes from start to finish. Problem solved!!

I read information on this website about the function of the high limit thermostat. I found that it was the problem by disconnecting the two wires on the thermostat and straight wiring to bypass it. This allowed the machine to work properly so I ordered the high limit thermostat. To replace the part I used a screwdriver to remove the instrument panel and replaced the high limit thermostat by disconnecting the two wires from the old thermostat and connecting the wires to the new thermostat. I then replaced the instrument panel. My machine is working properly again..

Dishes did not dry

After attempting to change the "high limit switch" to no avail, I researched further and found that doing a reset/reboot cured the problem.The instructions for the high limit thermostat were a bit off, as there was no screw to remove, only a spring like bracket that I did not try to figure out. The work area is so tight if the dishwasher is not removed and tilted that I thought it best to look for alternatives prior to pulling it out and disconnecting power and water. So ... voila, it's fixed with a reset only. Reset is accomplished by pushing two buttons 5 times. "high Temp Scrub then Heat Dry, high temp scrub then heat dry etc, until you click them both 5 times.It will go through cycles for a few minutes, then after done, run the dishwasher as normal and test if fixed. There are a few different ways to do it depending on the model.

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.

Being very skeptical of professional advice, I, nevertheless, opened the website. It appeared easy so I ordered the parts. Amazingly, they arrived the NEXT DAY with no extra postage charges. Normally, instructional videos are are intended for engineers and this type of instruction is way over my head and not the least bit helpful; however, in this case, it was fantastic. It was straight forward, easy to follow and simple. I was amazed. It was really awesome for this 80 year old woman to be able to make such a repair so easily. I had already gotten information on a repair company, thinking I'd end up needing someone else to provide the installation. In the end I am sure your very clear instructional video saved me two $85 house calls. I am so very grateful. Thank you!!!!!
