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 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).

Dishes and glasses were left with little specks of food on them.

We watched the very excellent video on this web site for replacing the Accumulator Filter and followed the instructions it provided. It's possible that we could have just cleaned our existing accumulator filter once we understood what it was and how to get to it, but the results of replacing it have been dramatic. It's like a new dishwasher.

Mounting Bracket and Door Handle broke

To replace the Door Handle, I had to remove the inside of the door with the 12ish Torx scres. It was a slide out slide in thing. To replace the brackets, I detached hoses, electricity and slid the DW out. More torx screws to come out, the three on top and the two on the sides allowed for me to bend down the white plastic tub away from the Aluminum square channel holding in the top mounting brackets.

Very straight forward repair. Parts Select provided the right part with very timely (regular FedEx)delivery. Repairclinic.com provided excellent video to show basic repair steps. Suggest using a "star" tip screw driver to disassemble interior parts of the machine to clean out years of gunk which will reduce the chance that the drive motor will bind/fail (which mine did and which saved me the cost of a new motor or new dishwasher). Upon reassembly, be sure to check water supply copper compression fittings for leaks that moving the machine can cause. Place pads under "feet" of machine to avoid marring wood floor when moving machine.

After installing a new filter, :( I tried this. I wish I would have done this first since it's way cheaper and easier!!! If your dishwasher slowly starts to decline in its ability to clean the dishes, it's probably this problem.

The docking stations just pulled of and snapped on. I took the tube in the back out to make sure the docking stations were seated well but I'm not even sure that was needed. Very easy. Another contributing factor was using rinse aid with an all-in-one gel pack detergent. I let the rinse aid run out and it's been working great ever since.

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!!!
