I replaced the mounting strip and plate. Then I pressed on each mounting strip wheel and reinserted the rack onto its rails. Replace the rail end caps and the rack slide in and out as it did when it was working properly.

I changed all of the switches first because it looked easier than the fill valve under the unit. After all of the switch changes (which were simple and quick) the washer still didn't fill. I removed the water valve and cleaned it, but still wouldn't fill. I reinstalled the old valve for practice, and then ordered water valve. It went alot smoother the second time around. I found it easier to disconect and connect the rubber water line with the hose clamp if I removed the valve from the sidewall of the wahser. Easier to get my fat fingers where they nedded to be. Used a shallow round 1 layer cake pan to catch drips. Works gtear now, and since I had earlier replaced the racks and silverware basket, it's pretty much a "new" twenty year old dishwasher. I went with the rehab instead of just replacing it because it has wood front panels which match our cabinets and wouldn't fit a new unit.

removed old rack and inserted new one - it slid right in - no tools needed - The most remarkable thing about this whole process was the speed with which we received the replacement part. I ordered it in the late afternoon on a Friday, and it was delivered the next morning. Great service!

I removed the inner plastic panel from the dishwasher door, and disconnected the two solenoid motors from the soap dispenser assembly. This made it possible to work on the door panel at a table. I disassembled the soap dispenser mechanism and scrubbed everything with a stiff nylon brush and then rinsed it off. I then rebuilt the dispenser mechanism using the new soap door latch and gasket and reinstalled the panel (after scrubbing all soap deposits from the area around the dishwasher door).

I watched the repair video twice and was able to follow the instructions just exactly as they described. I felt lucky not to have to have a more expensive service call.

Appliance is at least 14 years old. All we had to do was put rollers on and place it in the dishwasher! The other great thing about PartSelect is that it ships same day...we had the part two days later. We will order from you again if any parts are needed! Thanks.

I just flipped the endcap open and pulled it out of the end of the rail and rolled the rack off, popped the wheel off the old strip and put them on the new one, rolled it on the rail and put the endcap back on.

Clean Water Leakage At Bottom Of Door

  • Customer: NICHOLAS from PARMA, OH
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

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.
