Needed to purchase the entire assembly, due to a broken wheel. Certainly not the fault of PartSelect. Was VERY PLEASED with the simplicity of ordering, on-time delivery and ease of repair. Normally, projects take twice as long as I estimate. This was incredibly simple and the part was perfect.

The wheel had broken off from the basket so the basket dropped down on one side

Most importantly, take a picture with your camera phone or just pay really close attention to where the rack adjuster sits before you take it apart. I removed the rack stops and then removed the rack. Using a screwdriver with a torx (star) bit, I unscrewed the rack adjuster panel off, cleaned off the dish soap deposits, then just replaced the new rack adjuster. Before you go through the trouble of screwing everything back together, put just one screw in and make sure the thumb adjust lever is easy to push down like the one you have not touched as it is an indication that the adjuster is not sitting quite right and this is where having a picture of "before" comes in handy. Once I figured that out and the levers adjusted with equal tension, I screwed it all back together, put the rack back on the track and put the stops back in place and it is just like new.

Wheel broke on rack so it wouldn't stay in track.

The original problem that brought me to Parts select was a broken wheel on the top tray. While searching for part #s I came across several descriptions of dishes not clean . The videos available on line here were very detailed. This encouraged me to go ahead and order the parts. They arrived soon and were accurate to my order. The video on replacing the seal and chopper walked me through the entire job very clearly. Going slow and carefully keeping track of al screws I replaced the chopper, impeller and the filter. The filter did have a tear in the screening which allowed dirty water back up into the dishwasher.

Dishes not getting clean

We recently purchased a new home and it didn't matter how hot we ran the water in the sink before starting the dishwasher, the dishes, especially glasses, were filthy. Extra rinse cycles, pots and pans cycle, nothing worked. After finding this site, we took the chance on what the troubleshooter recommended and bought the accumulator filter and wash impeller. The parts came so fast! We followed the videos on this site step by step and we were successfully able to replace the filter and impeller. The impeller was COATED in nasty slimy grossness; it was obvious the previous owners never rinsed their dishes before running the dishwasher. After replacing these two parts, we have clean dishes! We have switched from tablets to liquid detergent which also helped (not sure why, tablets have worked at our old house just fine).

I first ran a cycle of clear glass to verify that there was something wrong. I pulled an exploded parts diagram off the internet to see what parts there were and to give me an idea how everything came apart. I slowly took piece by piece< keeping all screws seperated with the part they belonged with. I set the parts in the order they came out so I knew what way they would have to be returned to the machine. I cleaned and inspected all parts to ensure they were in working order. When I removed the accumulator filter I noticed all the screens were caked with what appeared to be soap scum. I then noticed one of the screens was tore away from the filters body about a half inch long. I decided to order the part(which was a sunday). The part was on my door step by tuesday morning( with standard shipping). I had the part reinstalled in 10 minutes. The hardest part of the whole job was getting all the slats on the filter to line up with the ones on the cover to be screwed onto it. They need to be lined up or the screws will not go in properly, which would be a whole different bag of worms. The job was seriously simple and the ease of ordering and receiving the part made it that much better. Thank you for being a great service to the service industry.

Dishes were not coming clean

Dishes were not coming clean and water was not draining from the dishwasher. Put in new part, and problem still existed. Went and bought a new dishwasher. However during the replacement I found the old dishwasher pump was also clogged with old gel packs, and the water hose was clogged with pipe debris. After clearing the pipe buildup, and replacing the dish washer, all is well. I was hoping the repair would have gone better, had I known the pump was clogged beyond repair I would have replaced the dishwasher sooner. The main issue was the clogged water hose, which caused all of the other issues. I would have loved for the $50 in parts to have fixed my existing dishwasher, unfortunately we didn't correct the problem before ruining the old dishwasher, a $350 mistake...

Top tray was not cleaning well

Disassembling the dishwasher was fairly straight forward 'until' I got to the plastic nut on the motor shaft to replace seal, which was stripped as many others have noted. I am a journeyman auto mechanic and had to resort to an old trick of clamping the plastic nut with a pair of visegrip pliers. While this 'did' work it was necessary to have two people to remove this nut as one must stop the motor from rotating and the other unscrews the nut. At this point everything proceeded well and the parts worked very well. The instructions could identify the parts better in the illustration as well as show the hole in the end of the motor necessary to stop rotation. Parts shipping and delivery was awesome!! These parts are also easily better than the originals. I would also suggest that those that do this job should consider replacing the handle with switches as well while you are in the middle of all of this work. I did not and ironically the handle broke as I closed the door after the repaired parts were installed. The replacement handle with switches is easily 200% stronger in construction. Thus far, with three loads through the dishwaser, it cleans like new with no leaks. This is a company that deals in quality parts and service to its' customers and I appreciate this approach more than I can explain here!!!

Thank You PartSelect for making this repair project simple and stress free. The exploded diagram of the appliance was clear and consise. The parts list was very helpfull. Showing me which parts were the most replaced gave me the confidence to order, reducing the prospect of having to return items ( always a pain point ). Parts arrived in just a few days. Followed the instructions on the video. Dishwasher was back in operation in no time and passed an overly thourgh dish inspection. Your site is amazing and is on my favorites tool bar. Thanks Agian !!!

The glasses on the top rack had food particles in them after a wash cycle

I initially took everything out and cleaned everything with the shop vac, and outside with the garden hose. That did not work, so I looked on parts select for a new accumulator filter, as I was not able to clean that very well. To install the new filter, I removed the sliding racks, top and bottom, and the water manifold, then removed the lower wash arm, then the parts under that, the filter plate, the outlet, the impeller, all the way to the accumulator filter. After removing that, installation was the reverse. I also cleaned the middle washing arm, and the lower, as I noticed food particles blocking the outer holes. All is good now, and the dishwasher, which we use almost every day, is working fine.

Dishwasher Did Not Clean And Drain Properly

Routine repair. There are videos on the net that show exactly how to replace the filter unit. However, when you order the filter, order a replacement pump impeller. The impeller must be removed to remove the filter on this model. The impeller was stuck on the shaft, and I had to destroy it with the side cutter pliers to get it off. Before putting the new one on, clean the pump shaft thoroughly and lube the shaft with silicon lube or vaseline jelly. Clean the bottom of the water pan thoroughly, then reassemble. Then pour one cup of vinegar in the bottom of the dishwasher and run it with no dishes. This will clean the inside of the dishwasher.
