Cracked drain hose

  • Customer: Jack from Miami, FL
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

Slid washer out from cabinet after disconnecting drain hose from garbage disposal and unplugging from electrical outlet. Was necessary to lay washer on side to disconnect drain hose from the dishwasher. Have towels ready as you will likely have some leftover water in hose & dishwasher. Used tape to secure insulation pad to washer so it would not catch on the side and top of cabinet when sliding back in place. Easy fix.

What I though would be a big ordeal, turned out to be a simple fix with the help of this website! I had a handle that would not work anymore and so looked up the make of the dishwasher and found the latch assembly part right away. I looked at the online video and pictures and it was really quite simple to do. Common sense told me to turn off the power to the dishwasher first and I did so at the circuit breaker. I have a electrical tool that tells me if power is flowing through a wire by making a loud beeping sound and I double checked to make sure the power was off. Then I took out the star shaped screws in the dishwasher plastic panel using a socket screw driver set I had (which happened to have the right attachment) Then, I saw the latch assembly which came off easily after removing the 2 screws holding it in place. The latch assembly had 2 wires attached on each side to the switches. I used a skinny screw driver to gently push back the plastic levers holding the switches in place and they slid off the old assembly. Then, having the old assembly in hand, I compared it to the online version and it matched exactly, so I ordered it. I took 2 days to arrive which was awesome. This was routine shipping. The rest was easy. I simply used the old switches still attached to the wires and slid them onto the new latch assembly after removing the new switches. I kept the old ones in case I need them later. I put everything back in place and the screws back in and turned on the power. It closed perfectly and worked perfectly! This was a piece of cake and I saved over $100 I am sure it would have cost to have someone come out.

I watched your "how to video" and dug right in. No real skill involved once you see how to do it. Think it took me 15 -20 minutes.ust have saved $100 dollars on the service charge and repair markup on the part.

The part arrived by Fed EX ground the next day. I removed 11 screws from inside the door, lifted up the panel, lifted out the old latch, unplugged two wire connectors, reconnected the two wire sets to the new part, layed it back into the door and reassembled with the 11 screws. The repair was very easy if you have the correct screw driver.

It was my good fortune to find PartSelect.Com while searching for information regarding a repair. Not only did PartSelect have the needed part at a reasonable price but the web sites video on how to effect the repair was excellent. The part itself was delivered in record time and the repair itself performed in less than half an hour. This is the best repair assistance I've encountered in the past 50 years. It's a web site I'll keep available for the future.

Monday morning, and the dishwasher handle broke - oh my!! I didn't want to call a repairman, so headed to google. I easily found the part I needed at Partselect, and the bonus of a video on how to replace the handle/latch assembly. I placed the order on Monday, and received the part on Wednesday - wow!! The repair was easy - the video gives great confidence. I really liked the savings involved by NOT having to call a repairman. Thanks. Mike

Our dishwasher was not heating up to dry dishes

  • Customer: Claude from Helotes, TX
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Wrench (Adjustable)

All steps were easy except the Maytag layout made it hard to get to the fittings to remove and reconnect the water line. After that we just moved the dishwasher from beneath the counter and laid it down on the front. Removing and testing the old heater element was easy. The hardest part of installing the element was the odd clips inside the dishwasher. I need to return the o-ring and nuts because you included them with the heating element.

Followed the instructions of the video and found it very helpful. The part was very easy to find and was delivered a lot sooner than I expected. I just removed the Torx screws as directed on the video, noting which way the wiring was plugged into the assembly and simply snapped it into place, plugged wires back in and reinstalled the screws. Works great. Didn't forget to kill the power first, thanks to the helpful video.

Broken plastic handle

  • Customer: William from Polson, MT
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins

Simple as 1,2,3! TURN OFF THE POWER!!! Open dishwasher...Remove 9 screws inside and around the door that hold the door cover on...Pull out the latch/switch and using a flat-blade screw driver GENTLY pry the two wire harnesses off the old latches micro switches (there is one on each side of the latch.) Attach the wire harnesses to the new switch and reverse the process. This whole job should take even the most novice person 10 to 15 minutes to complete! FYI the handle was the only thing broken but they don't sell just the handle...so you gotta buy the whole handle/latch/switch combination.

remove about 10 Torx screws using cordless driver to remove the rear of the front door. Then remove to electrical connectors on the two door switches. Remove broken part and replace with new. Reconnect the two switches and screw door backing in place. Close door and test. Took about 10 minutes.
