Under Counter Anti-Tip Brackets Broke

I put this unit in about 3 years ago and the brackets broke at the crease and the dishwasher fell forward. Found the right bracket and when it arrived looked a match. Checked link to video showing how to properly install the brackets. The original manufacturer never stated that the tab that goes through the frame is supposed to be bent 90 degrees to prevent the bracket from coming out. Thank you PartSelect for that video because I would probably end up ordering brackets again in a few years.

Your website was brilliant with the u tube video on how to fix it. Got the parts quickly and at half the price of Kitchenaid. And you included the white plastic pulley part for both sides with the string parts that holds the door up. Turns out that was what was broken on both sides. This is my first review ever and you get an A plus!

Turned off water to dishwasher and disconnected hot water and drain hoses. Removed to side screws and kick panel and pulled dishwasher from under counter. Removed old drain hose and fed the new one over to the drain. Reconnected the hot water and new drain hose. Pushed dishwasher under cabinet and screwed to cabinets. Ran the dishwasher and checked for leaks. Replaced kick panel.

Installing the new cord assembly took only 3 minutes after getting the built-in dishwasher out from under the counter. That was a thirty minute job. There was no way to slip my arm in to reconnect the coil balance spring. Thankfully the original installer supplied enough electrical and water line that did not have to disconnected.

Door would not stay in the upright position and would fall if not latched.

I removed the unit from under the counter and replaced the plastic and connecting cords to the springs, a ten minute job. The cord on the dishwasher is not made to take the strain and will break after some years of use. The kit came with all parts to repair the problem and there is a video on the site if you have a problem.

The hose had a slit in it.

Dishwasher door wouldn't stay partially opened

  • Customer: Terry from Raleigh NC
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

Very easy repair. Just used a cordless drill driver to remove the nut on each pulley, replaced them and that was it. One of the easiest repairs I have ever done. Had to pull the dishwasher our far enough to reach the pulley on each side. Part only goes in one way so you can't screw that up. :^) Tip: Used a lockgrip plier to pull on the spring while I attached the cord to it. Not required but made it easier.

I had to unscrew the float valve and just screwed the other one on and that was it! I saved my self like $300 for someone to come in.

Dishwasher seemed to have no power, would not respond to any buttons, no lights, would not run.

Turned off the circuit breaker to the dishwasher. Removed the screws inside the door to open the control panel. Located the thermal fuse. Removed the wires from the thermal fuse. Using a multimeter verified the thermal fuse was open. Ordered the replacement part from part select. Order was placed on a Saturday evening. Part was at my door on Wednesday morning. Using the previous method to access the control panel, I removed the thermal fuse and replaced it with the one received. I choose to replace just the thermal fuse and not cut the wire and splice in the new wire that came in the package. Replaced the control panel, tightened the screws. Dishwasher has worked great ever since! The actual replacement of the thermal fuse took less than 15 minutes. I'd hate to think what a service call and repair would have cost me compared to doing the repair myself.
