Ordered replacement kit. Came 7 days later. Opened box and found you had sent wrong part. Not even close the part number I had ordered. Called to report the problem. Sales person was very helpful. Original order was credited back and a new order placed with 3-5 day shipping. After the order was placed, I checked my receipt and found the price was about $6.00 higher than the original. Hmmm.

Removed two screws that hold the dishwasher in place with screwdriver. Pulled dishwasher out, connected balance kit to hook on door, ran cable through pulley system, hooked cable to one end of spring, and used pliers to stretch spring to hook it in its hole. Slide dishwasher back into position and replaced the two screws.

Ordered one evening and it arrived in two days. It took a minute to understand how it was attached to the basket with three clips. Two on the sides and one in the middle. All need to be taken off and the one in the middle has another assembly that needs to be opened up to allow the old one to come out and the new one to go in. Perfect fit and the hardest part was taking it out of the wrapper.

Loud noise from motor

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

I unfortunatly removed the whole base assembly to replace this motor. I wasn't sure what the original cause was. After watching your video I would have followed it and it would have been easier. All went well with not leaks and now we can sleep with the dishwasher on. Thanks

Removed the dishwasher from under the counter, disconnected the copper water tubing, placed it upside down, removed the old pump and replaced with new. The only iffy situation is making sure the copper tubing doesn't kink when removing the dishwasher and putting it back into the cabinet. Very simple, my husband can fix anything. Your video was very helpful as well.

I was only able to get the dishwasher partially out from under the counter. I had to reconnect the springs using a big screw driver. I then attached the door portion of the cable to the door and pulled the spring back to connect it. It went OK. I found your video valuable because I knew what I was dealing with and was able to come up with a solution for not pulling the washer completely out

Bracket to hold the wheels on the rack adjuster broken

  • Customer: James from Farmington UT
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

The task was easy, but make sure that you take the upper tray out of the dishwasher and do the work on a flat surface. The brackets holding the entire assembly require some force to separate, be careful not to pull too hard as they can break. As a guide, use the side that is not broken as a template. It is unfortunate that you must purchase the whole bracket assembly, but I don't believe that it is possible to repair only a portion of the bracket.

Door would not stay open unless completely in the full open position.

  • Customer: William from Inverness FL

Door balance kit was very easy to repair. Washer was installed incorrectly with water service run through the units frame. Once this issue was addressed, ordering and installation was a piece of cake.

Top spinner fell off

I noticed the top spinner in the top tray. It wouldn't stay when I tried to reattach it. I searched around the Internet using the model number of my dishwasher. I ordered the part which arrived in two days. I removed the top tray and gently pried the piece where the spinner attaches away, took the old pin out, snuck the new pin in there and snapped the spinner in. The problem was that the nipple on the pin was worn away. The spinner was fine but I didn't see an option to just buy the pin. The I st ructions I read said to dismantle the whole works, but I sneaked it in without doing any harm. I hope. Dishwasher works fine.

There are several interlocking parts for this assembly

It is a good thing the part was symetrical with the other side so I could use it as a reference. There were several parts that had to go together to reassemble the Rack Adjuster and i got a little frustrated a couple of times in getting the parts in the right place to snap in or to snap onto the wire basket. But it works and that is the important part.
