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!

Dishwasher would not start

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.

It was super simple, the web site was excellent in helping me purchase the proper parts, even when a slight error was made in my order(2 parts bags were ship that were empty)I contacted the service department an they immediately sent out the parts at no charge. I replaced the dishwasher cover in about 10 minutes. Probably saved a couple hundred dollar from a service call. Thank you.

Washing Arms would not spin
Again thank you to Partselect.com for excellent service. They had the parts I needed, a diagram of how the parts should go into the dishwasher, and shipping was very quick and reasonable priced.
My second thank you is to Stephen from Santa Fe, NM whose instructions I am annotating. His instructions are great; I’m just adding a bit.
Our problem was not noise, just terrible cleaning due to the fact that both the lower and upper spray arms were not moving or spraying water. I finally fixed the dishwasher but it was a bit of a hassle. First off, I wasted money buying parts I did not really need, but installed anyway. These included the upper (#33 - $21.33) and lower (#2 - $26.80) spray arms, for sure, and likely the secondary filter plate (#4 - $70.62). Although none were present on my machine, I bought one lower spray arm seal (#3 - $25.25). They say two are needed, but after spending $25 for a part that could not cost more than a nickel, enough was enough. Anyway, I installed these parts and the problem was not solved. For round 2, I ordered an upper discharge housing gasket (#38 - $3.96), an O-ring (#37 - $19.45), and motor pump impeller and seal assembly kit (#10 - $36.30). At this point, I was in for $220 in parts. Although the dishwasher was over 10 years old, I persevered because a new one with installation and disposal of the old would have run around $800.
Per Stephen in NM, and following the blow-up image of the Pump and Motor picture;
Unscrew part 34, the lower spray arm cap.
Pull out part 1, the jump-up nozzle
Lift Part 2, the lower spray arm, which is attached to part 36, the filter guard
Unscrew part 5 (6 of them) from part 4, the secondary filter, being careful not to lose part 3, the infamous $25 seals / bits of plastic, sitting inside part 4
Lift out part 6, the pump housing filter, and 7, the rinse arm
By hand, unscrew part 8 , the plastic discharge housing nut, and lift out part 9, the wash arm support
With a nut-driver, unscrew part 27 (three of them) and lift out part 11, the discharge pump housing.
With the same nut-driver, unscrew part 12, the impeller screw. In contrast to Stephen, I could not remove part 14, the wash impeller. Someone mentioned prying it off, but I was unable to do so without breaking the impeller. But no problem, since I had a new one via the #10 kit. Once the impeller is out, 15, the suction plate. and 16, the filter support, can be easily removed.
That is as far as I got, since my #10 kit did not have all the parts it claimed to have. Well, anyway, I put the whole thing back together (again) and now it works fine.
In retrospect, the only parts I think I needed were the seal kit #10, the #37 O-ring, and the #38 gasket, which would have cost under $70.

Dishwasher not washing dishes

  • Customer: mark from Magnolia, DE
  • Difficulty: Easy

All you need is to follow this instructional video. It will help you disassemble and reassemble.....except I went one step further and removed the wash impeller with a socket wrench and a jar opener to grip the wash impeller. Under the wash impeller is another filter system that was really clogged up. Make sure you remember ho tight the wash impeller is screwed on, no need to over tighten. ...I determine all the build up and clogs were from the "disposable" soap pods.

I think anytime the motor needs to come out of an older dishwasher, it would be wise to replace the main gasket that goes around the motor at the same time.
