Disconnect power (circuit breaker) open dishwasher door, remove 3 trox (star) drive screws on each side of door( do not remove the 2 top screws on each side) close door and pull out at the top than up at the bottom to remove front panel. NOTE, If you have a super quiet washer you have to pull out on the panel quite hard because the foam insulation is glued in and has to be broken loose. Unplug the 2 wires connected to the dispenser , remove the 6 trox screws holding the dispenser in , remove dispenser making sure to clean where the gasket goes before installing new dispenser. You may want to check to see if a wire fell off your dispenser before you order a new one. THAT'S what mine did and PARTS SELECT took the part back, NO PROBLEM.

Your web site had a repair video that I watched and it showed me how to replace the broken part which was very helpful. Cleaned the lower sump unit and checked other parts for wear.Dishwasher had"nt been cleaned in a while.Part was a lot cheaper then some of the appliance parts store,ordered it on Saturday and received it on Tuesday.

Should have been simple repair. Door panel would not come loose. Seems they used adhesive on the door panel and the styraform insulation. Did not want come loose and put back together as I did not want to destroy or bend door panel and insulation. Any advice on how to remove!

Rinse aid dispenser failed

The movie on the web site is excellent but that model does not have the foam insulator. The insulator is glued to the door and the front panel forming an almost impenetrable sandwich. You will have to make some sort of a knife with a thin 2 foot long handle. Pry the top of the insulation away from the front panel and use the homemade knife to cut the glue. To access the soap dispenser cut a rectangular hole in the insulation where it covers the dispenser. Then follow the video. The rest is easy.

Soap dispenser door won't open

This repair is actually easy to do however the problem I had was removing the door. It seems the kitchen aid engineers decided to have the sound insulation installed with adhesive. This means the door doesn't just easily remove like the video shows. I had to carefully scrape the back side with a 4" drywall tape knife. It's glued on both sides and the insulation covers the soap dispenser. Result was I had to carefully cut an access to the dispenser with a box cutter to get access. Be careful not to cut the dispenser wire when you make the opening. I would also cycle the washer before you reinstall the door as I didn't get mine tight enough and it leaked so I saved a bunch of time. I also changed the control unit because it is often the cause of the problem and since this my daughters who lives 10 hours a away. I decided it was a good investment. Finally Parts Select is great received the parts next day great service kudos to them.

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.

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!
