The top spinner fell off and would not snap back on

Bought a replacement spinner which came with the litte round connector piece. The connector piece had worn down (the spinner probably got caught on a tall glass or pot). Anyway, for ease of access, you remove the bottom and top racks, unscrew two screws (one on the top and one on the back of the dishwasher that holds the water piping). Then pull the water piping assembly down from the top until you can remove the round connecting piece. The tip of mine was worn off which is why the spinner would not stay on. Once you replace the round connector piece, snap the spinner into it, put the screws back in and you are done. Very easy fix for about $22 including S&H.

Door was noisy

I followed the instructions from the partselect video and replaced the damaged door balance part. I ended up having to adjust the plastic wheel piece because the new strings were shorter than the original but luckily there was another screw hole to accommodate the shorter strings. I did replace both sides. Overall, this was a very easy repair thanks to partselect and now my door works great. I will definitely be using this site in the future!

The upper wash arm mount broke

The part isn't the same as the old one, but you could see how it worked easy enough. Problem was, once I got the part, it didn't screw on like the old one, it clipped to the rack. Nice! ...except that it's designed for the narrow spacing on the rack, but, if I used the narrow spacing on the rack that held the clip well, then it wasn't in the right location to hold the spray arm to the water hose. The solution has to be attended to frequently, to remount it, but that's not a big deal (until it breaks), but the remount is necessary because you have to span a broader distance than it's designed to, by about a quarter inch. It works, but it doesn't. Just because the unit's pretty old, but it still works GREAT!

First checked my house cb's. Then visited this site and found in troubleshooting guide that the problem was 6x% likely the thermal fuse; location was shown on parts guide. Used my multimeter to verify that fuse was open. Order new one from your site. Installed after receipt and all is well. Most difficult part was getting the door panels in position to reinstall sheetmetal screws. Hope this helps.
