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

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.

After reading other repair stories, I ordered the big 3, door gasket, grommet and inner door foam insulation strip. For $80 I wasn't going to do the trial and error method. Parts were here in 1 day, and after doing a trial run prior to receiving the parts, new parts were installed in 20 minutes. Don't know which one was the problem, but no more leak. Happy wife, happy life.

I watched the " How to video " that was supplied on your web-site. It was very easy to do and simple to understand. My wife say's I'm her hero because I saved us a $150.00 service call, + the cost of the gasket, which would have cost more if they furnished it. Thanks----

my bottom dishwasher rack was rusting away. I put off buying a new one for years because I thought that was too much money. My daughter told me it was cheaper than a new dishwasher.

I went online and found PartSelect, put in my model number (thinking no way would anyone one have the right part because the dishwasher was so old). PartSelect came up with the rack, I ordered it, still having doubts. It arrived in a matter of days and it fit. I had a problem with the water tower. I couldn't take it off the old rack. PartSelect had a customer online with the same problem with the tower. I followed his instructions, it came off the old rack and onto the new rack so easily. I'm a very old grandmother, and I did the whole process all by myself. That was a wonderful experience and my old dishwasher is like a new dishwasher. Thank you all so much.

Removed the old strip - cleaned the channel and installed the new gasket. Soooo easy. Unfortunately it's still leaking so now I'm ordering the gasket kit. Should have done it to begin with - like everyone else does!!!

First of all I don't know how you got the part here in one day. Second, I am glad I watched your video, otherwise I would have never seen the gasket tucked in the groove.Discharge pump housing had come apart inside dropping a round disc onto the impeller causing the noise and poor performance. Nice job guys!!!! thanks again. I will always use you now. Scott Seminole fl

noisey belt system

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

The ironic thing is it wasn't broke! I had ordered new rollers, new belt and new tensioner, before I took the front off. The video was helpful. The tough part was reinstalling the tensioner as it did not screw down. But live and learn. I set the tensioner in place and used small wire to bring it over to the moter drive, then assembled the new belt together and cut the retaining wire.
