pump mmotor would not run

First I would like to say I was concerned about undertaking a dishwasher repair ,as I now am legally blind and I was concerned that my vision impairment might cause me a problem. My dishwasher pump motor was not running and from the humming sound I could tell it was cycling power off on the thermo switch overload. The pump can be removed by turning it counter clockwise,however it would not move and I could not rotate the motor manually, IT appeared that the impeller must be jammed,so I removed the complete ascribe..After I removed it the motor still could not be removed for replacement. I ordered the complete assembly from PartSelect.com an was supervised how fast it was delivered. The hardest part was getting the seal to go in place as it was new and a tight fit. The Partsselect.com video's ,on repair instructions were very helpful. I reinstalled the dishwasher and everything worked fine.Thanks for thefast delivery of my order.

The soap dispenser would not work

  • Difficulty: Easy

After reading other posts I opened the dishwasher door put a support underneath it. Knowing that all the screws were not the same I carefully unscrewed them and placed them on a towel in order of extraction. After all the screws were taken out, I lifted the door up gently and lifted it out of its place and put it aside. Now I could see the hex screws holding in the soap dispenser. I then unscrewed the screws and place the frame aside. Next I gently pulled the electrical connector to the dispensing unit off. After locating a snap tab on top on the left hand side and one underneath on the right hand side, I gently lifted the tab and the dispenser unit moved slightly forward. After gently prying the lower tab on the right hand side the dispensing unit was loose. I just reversed the process to put things back together. I was not necessary to have any help taking things apart but it was very helpful having a second set of hands when we put it back together. Lining up the screws for the door was much easier with two people. After installation, I started the dishwasher to check for leaks. Everything was fine. Very satisfied to be able to repair/replace this unit without calling a tech. If you can change a spark plug on a lawnmower you can replace a soap dispenser on a dishwasher such as mine. Very quick delivery from parts source. Thank you.

Drain hose leaking

I did not relize that the drain hose was in two parts. Naturally I ordered the wrong half. So after I relized my mistake, I re-ordered the correct part. Once the correct part was received the repair was easy and went well.

Dishwasher would not pump water

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

.The easiest way to complete the impeller and chopper motor replacement is to disconnect the power, water and drain line, remove the dishwasher from the cabinet, set the washer on its back.

From this point everything is visible, pump housing, motor, etc. and it's a matter of disassembly and reassembly. Make note or a drawing of where all the wires are connected so you reconnect them in the right spots.

Reinstall water lines and power and check for leaks before replacing shield or kick plate.

Popped out the old motor and put in the new. Took some tinkering to understand all the hookups but was not too dificult. I am handy but other shouldn't have trouble either. Must dedicate a couple of hours at least.

FIRST RUN THE CANCEL AND DRAIN CYCLE TO EMPTY THE WATER FROM THE MACHINE. NEXT SHUT OFF THE WATER AND POWER TO MACHINE. THEN DISCONECT THE WATER AND DRAIN HOSES, AND UNINSTAL THE MACHINE FROM THE CABNET. THERE ARE USUALY JUST TWO SCREWS AT THE TOP WHEN YOU OPEN THE DOOR. BEFORE YOU TAKE THEM OUT TAKE OUT THE BOTTOM WASH ARM, AND THE SCREAN AND THE COVER OVER THE FOOD CHOPPER. THESE ARE ALL HELD IN WITH STAR SCREWS. AFTER THE COVER IS TAKEN OUT THE CHOPPER WILL LIFT RIGHT OUT.

NEXT LAY THE MACHINE ON ITS SIDE THERE IS JUST ONE CAPSCREW HOLDING THE MOTOR IN LOCATED BEHIND IT WHEN LYING DOWN BUT FIRST UNPUG THE WIRE HARNES TO IT.
THE MOTOR WILL COME OUT WITH JUST A SMALL TWIST AFTER THE CAP SCREW IS OUT.
TO INSTAL JUST TWIST IN PUT IN THE CAP SCREW AND FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS BACKWARD TILL IT IS INSTALLED AGAIN.

The dishwasher is has been in service only 18 months and the seal between the motor and pump leaked, destroying the front motor bearing.

Rather than just replacing the motor and seal, I figured it would be just as easy to replace the sump and pump assembly also. It makes sense because the extra cost is minimal and I have a completely new unit now. The repair is quite simple. Just three clips holding the sump and a few electrical connectors and the unit comes right out.

Hardest part of job was sliding dishwasher out. Put in wood floors so limited free space. Had to lower fron foot pegs first, then remove 2 screws from top that held unit steady. Once dishwasher was out a good 16" cords were easy to replace. Did not replace bracket that came with kit. Cords attach to heavy duty spring.
