I simply had to hook up the power cord to the dishwasher so i could plug it into the outlet rather than direct wire the appliance. Everything went very smoothly. Everything needed for installation other than tools was provided. Easy to follow instructions if you know a little about electrical wiring.

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.

It was very easy.

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.

Increasingly loud whirring noise

The machine we bought was one of the quietest. Until recently it would run without making any noise. My wife brought the noise to my attention and I started troubleshooting. I took it apart to find there were pieces of broken glass in the screens and filters. After that I tested it and discovered that the sounds would only come if the motor itself were operating. Replaced motor....bada bing... I look like a hero to the wife.

One tension line broke.

I pulled the dishwasher out just over half way to access the spring area. Unscrewed the old assembly and screwed the new one in it's place. Attached the string line to the spring, wrapped it around the assembly and attached it to the door hook. Repeated procedure on other side. Problem solved.

Very easy. I removed the two screws on the base plate, then the two screws that attach the washer to the cabinet, and pulled the washer out of its slot. I installed the broken side and closely checked the other side and felt it didn't need repairing. I put it back together and the door works very well.

Thanks,
Ted K.

Door Drops - No Balance

  • Customer: Dan from Los Angeles CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set
  • 1 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
My 2 yr old sat on the dishwasher door while it was open. It snapped both the links on the door causing the dishwasher door to drop every time it was ajar. It was a real danger to the kids or to anyone else unaware of the door given its weight.

I ordered the part from Part Select based model and some of the posts that it was something you can do yourself. Park Select was outstanding as got the part next day and got direction from others (thank you). I did not have either side of the door working so no real gauge but finally understood how it worked once I did a search online for a picture.

Recommendation: if both links (rope) are broken, you will need to hunt down the springs on side/back of machine. The part with small hole connects to the spring, the other to the door. Make a reverse S with the rope through the pully system for tention. I did not initially do the reverse S and the part popped of the door once I closed it. Otherwise, easy thing to do and certainly do not need a repair person.....if you need picture, do a search on dishwasher door pully system

Door cord Broke

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.
