Other than having to disconnect the water line from the supply (because it did not have sufficient length to fully pull the dishwasher from uner the counter), this job was quite simple. The originals parts were easy to disconnect and simply replaced with the new parts. What was most impressive was that I ordered the parts online on a Sunday evening and the parts were delivered to my door by noon on Tuesday.

At first I thought something was jammed in the impeller, so I took it completely apart(gutted it). Put it back together and still the same. thought it could be the control panel or maybe the door switch. changed the door switch with a new from PartSelect and still the same.Took it apart again this time checked the motor and sure enough it was frozen.Took impeller off only to find motor shaft was corroded from water damage mechanical seal must have leaked. BAD quality control also found a loose rubber washer in the motor housing and the door handle hinge was broke in half. I'm sure it was shipped this way. Thanks for the speedy delivery and fair pricing. Chris

There is a video associated with this part provided by partselect.com and I followed it exactly. It is very easy to follow but I should say this is the third time I have had to repair this part. It is plastic and breaks easily.

Door Balance broke and would drop w/o tension

I followed the video instructions, turned off power, disconnected the water and disposal connections, disconnected the under-counter and kickplate mounts and pulled out the dishwasher. I used towels to catch any excess water from the disconnected water lines, and removed the broken door balance. The "cable" broke and technically could have just replaced the sing part, but decided to replace the entire mechanism. Since I did not pull the dishwasher out the whole way, having a flashlight was helpful to look at the spring and make sure it was properly attached to the frame as I connected the cable to it. I slid the unit back in, reconnected the water/disposal lines, kickplate and counter mounts, and turned on the power. Worked perfect.

I first went to the breaker box and turned off the power. Then turned of the water supply and removed the lower panels. I proceeded to take the electrical off and disconnect the water supply tube and disconnected the drain tube. At this time I removed the counter screws and lowered the adjustable legs so I could pull the washer from under the counter. Want it is out I laid it on its side and unplugged the power cord to the motor and removed the 3/8 inch hex head screw , so I could turn the pump 1/4 turn and removed it. To replace the new pump I first aligned the arrows on pump and motor housing and placed the pump back into the sump housing and reversed the removal process. It was just that easy . Thank for the quick shipping of the pump and motor.

Ordered parts on Sunday afternoon and received Tuesday afternoon with standard shipping. Followed the online video for replacement; replaced both sides as a precaution while unit was pulled out. Very satisfactory experience from ordering parts to completion of repairs.

replaced the balance link which was clearly explained in the video on the web site. The video was extremely helpful. Also, received the part in a matter of a day or two...much earlier than expected. I give Part Select A+

Googled the problem, water fill valve seemed to be the problem. Ordered the part, slide the dishwasher out, leaned it back to expose the front bottom area, removed the old valve (dont forget to turn off the water first). Just remove the part and replace. Its that simple!

WATCHED YOUR VIDEO AND IT WAS EASY. SOME PROBLEM WITH SEAL IN TUB WHEN I TIPPED THE DISWASHER OVER. GOOD IDEA TO REMOVE SEAL AND CLEAN AREA WELL.

Broken door balance link

  • Customer: Herbert from Madison WI
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Wrench set

The repair of the link itself would have been just as easy as shown in the video--but 1. It was not clear what hole to put the screw in; 2. it was not easy to pull the spring close enough to make the link with the cable. Pretty strong spring. Aside from that, the business of getting the dishwasher out of the cabinet and then back in again--properly aligned, was time consuming. PROBLEM: now the door tips to the right, brushing the edge of the body, and has to be pulled leftward to correct it. Is this a matter of which hole I've used to put the screw in when I replaced the mechanism?

Pulled the dishwasher out from under the counter, replaced both sides of the door balance with the new kit and pushed the dishwasher back into place. The most time was taken getting the dishwasher out.

One cable of door balance link snapped; I replaced both sides

I followed the very clear instructions from your video. Excellent.BUT --there were associated problems along the way--removing the front plate and finding two there; leveling the washer evenly while lying on the floor. The spring was tightly sprung and not so easy to hook up for one old guy alone. Little things like that. In short, the video was excellent but for an amateur pulling out a dishwasher for the first time it was more time-consuming and trickier than I'd hoped. But I wasn't really surprised. The point is: it works now! Thanks
