My wife was visiting her parents in Ecuador and she relayed back to me that their dishwasher was inoperative. She explained the situation and I researched the problem with Parts Select. The solution was simple, since Parts Select had an array of extremely helpful step by step repair instructions. I sent her the link, ordered the door switches, and she did the repair by viewing the video. It was an outstanding, effortless experience! Thanks to Parts Select, not only was the parts inexpensive, but instruction videos are to the tee!

Was so easy. I am an old grandmother. I looked for parts for the dishwasher and happened on this site. When describing the problem, I said "won't start". The part number came up and I bought it. Took about 3 days for part to arrive and less than 15 min to install. So easy and if I had problems there was a step by step guide on internet. I am 100% satisfied and recommend for anyone even if you are not handy.

Dishwasher stopped starting more than a year ago

First problem was finding out whether Dishwasher had power at all, since nothing happened when you tried to start it, and I really didn't want to have to pull it out and disconnect the power cables at the box on the back of the dishwasher. Used the video instructions from PartSelect and opened the inside door panel and exposed the switch, then put a continuity tester (light with two prongs) across opposite sides of switch (white one side, black the other). With the test light on, knew I had power and was able to locate circuit breaker to turn off power to dishwasher, all without dismounting it from the cabinet at all. From there, followed the video. Hardest part was disconnecting wires from the old switch, which was slightly corroded. Plier trick on video didn't do it, and had to use large screw driver blade to carefully lever wires off of the switches. NOTE: Look at the new switches before doing this, and you'll be able to visualize how the wire clips slip on the switch connectors. Great site, and dishwasher started right up after the repair.

Dishwasher would run then turn off. When touching the handle it would start up again.

First replaced the door seal, that slowed it down substantially, but not totally. Next replaced inner door foam insulation strip and that took care of it, no more leaks. There was some corrosion evident after I scraped off the old strip, sanded that smooth with emery sandpaper and then installed new strip. Job done!

Snapped in the new ones in a skinny minute. Just make sure you leave the old ones in the dishwasher rack until the new ones come in it can be confusing if they are removed. My wife took them out so I had to figure out how they went back in but was not a big issue. I did have to swap ends to make it right but less than fifteen minutes and like new again.
