Unscrew machine fro counter top, pull it out of cabinetry, remove old pulley & bollard blocks, install new ones, hook new string to spring, run through pulleys. Then, the only trick: I used one of the old broken cords to extend the spring so i had slack in the new line so it could be hooked in place. Hook the broken cord on the spring after connecting the new cord, then pull on it with one hand while positioning the new cord with the other. A major unexpected bonus of doing this repair was that that the design of the pulley block had been improved so now each block uses two pulleys instead of a pulley and a bollard. This makes opening and closing the door nearly silent, where as before there was some friction where the string rubbed over the bollard and that set up a resonance in the spring that was quite loud.

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.

Removed upper rack and installed new arm assembly

Dishwasher control board pads worn, all functions not lighting up, thus machine not running.

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.

dispenser didn't dispense

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 went according to the video. even though it would have been easier to just plug in the new fuse, I cut and replaced the wire clips, as I figured there was some resistance in the replacement wire to keep the fuse from blowing again.

The dishwasher had to be pulled from under the countertop and the face at the base of the dishwasher required removal. The new piece was attached to the door spring, routed through the wheels and attached to the front attach point of the dishwasher. The face was reinstalled and unit was pushed back to under the countertop.

LINK CORD FROM DOOR TO HIDGE WAS BROKEN

  • Customer: Larry from Redmond OR
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

THERE WERE ACTUALLY SLOTS CUT IN THE SIDE TO PLACE A SCREW DRIVER TO STRENTCH THE SPRING TO ATTACH IT TO THE CORD AND PLASTIC END. BUT THE SPRING WOULD NOT STRETCH FAR ENOUGH SO TOOK THE INTIATIVE AND DRILLED ANOTHER HOLE TO PLACE SCREW DRIVER AND PRY THE SPRING FAR ENOUGH TO ATTACH THE REPLACEMENT PIECE. AFTER THAT IT WAS DONE. FAIRLY EASY AS YOU HAVE THE OTHER SIDE OF THE APPLIANCE TO LOOK AT AND CAN TELL HOW THE HIDGE ON THE SIDE THAT NEEDED REPAIR SHOULD GO. VERY VERY EASY AFTER HOLE WAS DRILLED IN FRAME.

I had not needed to install the mounting brackets that came with the dishwasher because the old counter top was 1 inch lower than standard and I was able to just wedge the dishwasher into the space and it would not tip.

I simply disconnected the power line to the dishwasher and pulled it out enough to install the mounting brackets. The installation manual that came with the dishwasher described how to install the brackets and I simply followed directions.
