Initially, I was going to call a repair-person to fix the dishwasher, but decided to check and see what was available on-line. I was very surprised to find a video on YouTube for my specific model. Even more surprising was the relative ease to perform the repairs, after watching the video. I have the proper tools, so I disassembled, per the video and found the problem. I was elated to see how easy it was to order the parts kit. It came in three days, and within 1/2 hour after parts arrival, I had the dishwasher purring like a kitten. What an excellent service. If you can turn a screwdriver, you can fix your appliance, via these well-done videos.

on initial start after a fill water gushes out under the door

  • Customer: John from Mossyrock WA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

Door seal did not fix. Thinking back it makes since that the door seal would be for a constant leak, mine is when it starts up after a fill. During normal run no leaks. Some say that if you have a wore out lower wash arm it can cause a wave that send water over the tub lip and under the door. This makes since for my conditions- ordered new bearings, bushings,nut, and wash arm.

My family has had this dishwasher since the late 90s and the upper spray arm pin snapped. We use it almost every day so I'm amazed it still works. Got the parts in a few days and clipped the re-designed parts in and they've been working fine since.

The machine was not draining properly and dishes were not being cleaned thoroughly

The video was great! I couldn't have done it without it. The repair took me a little longer than expected because I did not have the right tools (torx head screwdriver), but once I went out and bought it, the rest was fairly easy. The old impeller had some build-up on it, so it was pretty hard taking it off the motor shaft: this was one of the hardest parts, since I was afraid of forcing it out and breaking something. Once I cleaned up the motor shaft, however, the new impeller went in easily. Both the old impeller and washer seal were damaged. Overall, I was very happy with Partselect's fast shipping, easy-to-use website and incredibly helpful installation videos. The machine is now not only NOT leaking anymore, but dishes are coming out MUCH cleaner. The dishwasher is over ten years old, so I was happy that this low-cost fix made such a big difference and we didn't have to buy a whole new dishwasher.

removing & reinstalling slide stoppers

When I realized the slide stoppers for the upper rack were "slightly age corroded", I sprayed Pam on the holes and soaked the slide parts in boiling water overnite to try & soften the plastic. Next morning I got them back in with needle-nose pliers. The rest was easy. I watched the video provided by the company several times.

I suddenly found my dishwasher with a puddle of water across my kitchen floor. Checking the door seals showed me all of them seemed ok. I figured I was going to be out $700-$900 dollars for a new one. First I checked the internet, and thank goodness came across PartsSelect web site. I started reading posts from people with the same problem I had, and the way they fixed it. Not only do they have schematics of the parts for all of the dishwasher, but for some repairs even had a video showing how it was done. Most people stated it was the Pump outlet seal, due to a lose screw from the pump. Sure enough I found a screw in my washer and realized I could see some of the seal sticking out. With the parts numbered it was easy to order what I needed, and shipping was so fast. When I got my parts I did what the video said and in less than 30 minutes had it up and running. $38.15 with shipping was a whole lot better than $700. I am VERY satisfied. I got two seals and a bearing ring, which I needed, for that price.

When I pulled out the bottom rack, it would snag, and I would end up lifting the rack of dishes to get them onto the door for removal.

I watch a brief repair video but when I got the parts it was even easier than the video to install. I'm a 45 year old female and I had no problems getting the right parts and installing them properly.
