This company is a KEEPER !!! fast, perfect service !! The part was different than what I had, BUT, it was BETTER !!!! No kidding, it was far sturdier than the lousy basket that was originally with the dishwasher.....this basket also can be split into 2 smaller baskets and relocated to other areas of the dishwasher, as well as having removable "lids" to keep flyaway things in place......I was so pleasantly surprised at this great service, great product and great price......for once, something was totally 100% hassle free !! :))))) One very happy customer here !!! This store is in my "favorites" stash!

Please be aware the basket shown on this site is the original basket that came with the dishwasher. The basket they sent is not original. It is the dark grey basket found on every other site when searching for this item. You can save yourself some cash buying this non original basket from at least a half dozen other sites.

Easiest ever. Recycled the old one and put the new in its place. We are trying to place the silverware in, rather than dropping it in. It was suggested in the video from this website.

Stripped threads on plastic motor shaft

  • Customer: charles from Orange TX
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I watched the youtube video and followed the steps. The first time I tried it without taking the motor out because I didn't want to spill water on the floor, but I wasn't able to tighten the new motor shaft all the way so nothing lined up and it didn't work. Second time I followed instructions exactly and it worked like a charm. This is the second repair I have made to this dishwasher that was given to me for free because the door latch was broken. I fixed that problem for around $12.00. This time it broke because something metal got jammed in the motor causing the threaded shaft to strip. This repair cost around $80.00. Still the cheapest, nicest dishwasher that I could ask for. A+++ for partselect.com on price, service, and delivery. Thanks.

DW leaving dirt in bottom of glasses

  • Customer: suzanne from Church Hill TN
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

The original problem that brought me to Parts select was a broken wheel on the top tray. While searching for part #s I came across several descriptions of dishes not clean . The videos available on line here were very detailed. This encouraged me to go ahead and order the parts. They arrived soon and were accurate to my order. The video on replacing the seal and chopper walked me through the entire job very clearly. Going slow and carefully keeping track of al screws I replaced the chopper, impeller and the filter. The filter did have a tear in the screening which allowed dirty water back up into the dishwasher.

Dishes not getting clean

We recently purchased a new home and it didn't matter how hot we ran the water in the sink before starting the dishwasher, the dishes, especially glasses, were filthy. Extra rinse cycles, pots and pans cycle, nothing worked. After finding this site, we took the chance on what the troubleshooter recommended and bought the accumulator filter and wash impeller. The parts came so fast! We followed the videos on this site step by step and we were successfully able to replace the filter and impeller. The impeller was COATED in nasty slimy grossness; it was obvious the previous owners never rinsed their dishes before running the dishwasher. After replacing these two parts, we have clean dishes! We have switched from tablets to liquid detergent which also helped (not sure why, tablets have worked at our old house just fine).
