I noted that the replacement kit had two large rollers now vs the original that had only one that rotated, the other fixed. Also, the plastic attachment for the door arm was more simple. It was very easy to pull out the unit, attach the spring end hook to the rear of the dishwaser frame hole, attach the new cable, thread it over the two rollers and pull the spring using the cable to attach to the door arms. Less than 20 minutes to install both sides.

Disconnected the water line after removing all the screws which hold the dishwasher in place. Slid the unit out around 24 inches and removed broken Door balance pulley and replaced both sides with the new door balance set . replaced both sides to ensure an even and balanced tension when opening and closing the door! Over all a relatively easy repair. Just be certain you disconnect the water line if you do not have enough slack when pulling out the unit from the cabinet. Good as new!

I watched the Video that was supplyed with the e-mail and when the part got here I new just what to do and it took maybe 15 min at the most. You saved me over $100.00 from what we had to pay once before for the same problem to a repair man. And now I know where to buy my parts for all my appliances when they fail and with KitchenAid it seems to be quite often.

Not cleaning properly and loud noise

Followed the video and changed it out in 20 minutes which did not fix the problem entirely, but I went back to the list of symptoms and watched a video on exchanging the Chopper assembly. I disassembled the interior and found broken glass and wire and string restricting the rotational functions. No replacment was necssary here, but a good cleaning was in order. This made it run like new and the glasses came out shiny again. These step by step videos have even made me think about becoming an appliance repairman. LOL! This is about the 8th time I have had success with Part Select. I have had no failures. Thank you for giving away all the secrets. YOU DEFINITELY HAVE SAVED ME AND MY FAMILY TONS OF MONEY!

Removed under countertop screws and lower trim plate. Retracted levelers to clear slate floor. Could only pull unit out about 8 inches, so had to reach in blind to remove and reconnect link ends from springs. Other than my 1 year old Newfoundland pup 'helping', no problems. Parts were perfect fit, just like in the video.

The first check was for any circuit breakers that tripped. Upon finding the circuit breakers intact, I removed the front panel from the dishwasher and verified power was up to the panel, which is was. I removed the kick panel and located documentation for schematics and troubleshooting. This led me to the bi-metal switch (non-resettable). After turning off the power, I checked the continuity across the switch and found it was open. Then I provided a short across the switch and turned the power on to verify panel was working properly, which is was. This verified the bi-metal (thermal switch) was the issue. I then ordered the switch and installed it per the instructions. While looking for the switch, I did run across another post suggesting the additional wire leads with the kit should be included since they act as a heat sink. With the new switch installed along with the additional wire leads, the dishwasher is working fine.

REMOVED THE OLD SEAL, CLEANED THE GROOVE, FOLLOWED DIRECTIONS, PLACED ADHESIVE PER DIRECTIONS, PLACED NEW SEAL IN GROOVE PER DIRECTIONS, CLOSED DOOR FOR 24 HOURS, JOB WAS COMPLETED. I WAS CONCERNED THAT THE NEW SEAL DID NOT LOOK LIKE THE ORIGINAL SEAL, BUT THE NEW SEAL ACTUALLY WAS BETTER THEN THE ORIGINAL SEAL.

I simply followed the instructions on Youtube video. They couldn't have made it any easier.

Leaking drain hose

  • Customer: Mark from Hopewell Junction NY
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Easy to replace this drain hose, but being the section that attaches to the pump, the dishwasher had to be removed from under the counter. Most of the time spent was disconnecting the supply, drain and electric then removing the dishwasher. Once out, the drain hose replacement should take 5 minutes or less. Very straightforward. Please remember to shut off electricity and water supply to the dishwasher before starting this project!
