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.

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.

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

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.

My husband diddled around for a day making a new screw and found an old wheel and fixed it. so far it is working but we are keeping the parts we ordered for the next emergency. having them at home is reassuring. thanks for the super quick delivery. Donna

Clean Water Leakage At Bottom Of Door

  • Customer: NICHOLAS from PARMA, OH
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
After replacing the door foam strip and the soap dish grommet I still had the water leakage at the bottom of the door, in fact a bit more leakage. Then I replaced the foam insulator strip on the inner door. Still had the leakage! I opened the door after the water finished the fill cycle and noticed the water level was unusually high. Apparently the water float was partially stuck allowing an over fill. I pushed on the float downward a few times and removed some of the water and re-ran the washer. The leak was reduced to a few drops. Removed the float and soaked it in vinegar to clean it and this cured the problem.

Broken Handle and Latch

  • Customer: Sharon from Ravenna, MI
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
The latch on the dishwasher broke and we thought we would have to buy a new one. I figured I couldn't break it any more than it was already broken, so I took the inside panel off to see if I could fix it. Searched the part online and found out the replacement was only $30...MUCH cheaper than a new washer. So I ordered the part, got it THE NEXT DAY, and had it fixed in under 15 minutes! Brilliant!

The door would not latch. Safety switches wouldn't allow it to run with a bad latch
