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.

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.

Followed video. Everything went together fine, but leaked water around motor shaft seal. Read comments section on video and someone had the same problem. I had pushed the seal into base too deep. I pulled it out and reseated it. It worked without leaking after that. Bob

After turning off the power and the water supply, I removed the old valve and replaced it with the new valve. Very simple -- the inlet line to the valve is attached with a hex fitting. The outlet is attached with a spring clamp. There is an electrical connector which powers the solenoid that opens the valve. The connector simply pulls off the old valve and is pushed back onto the new valve. With the power still off, I turned on the water supply to check for leaks. There were no leaks, but to my surprise, water immediately surged through the valve and into the dishwasher! -- Remember, there was no power to operate the solenoid! BAD VALVE? Back to the Internet. So far, I've found no other explanation. HELP!!

Unplugged the power cord and removed front toe kick panels. Used a small mirror to see the location of the screw holding the float switch in place and removed the screw, disconnected the float from inside the dishwasher removed the float switch and replaced. It was a simple repair and so far seems to have solved the leaking problem. There was some unusual wear to my old float and the switch looked like it may have been leaking a small amount as it had lime build up on the switch lever. The part came with an easy to follow instruction sheet. PartSelect has saved me money on repair work I thought I would not be able to do myself. The website is very helpful in resolving what he problem may be and what parts are needed. Fixed four other appliances using this site over the past few years and they ship quick.

Checked to see if the disposer was stuck or sprayers filled with food. They were clean so I listened and checked to see if the sprayers were spraying while the dishwasher was running. It was not. Checked online for answers and they said that there might not be enough water in the dishwasher since it did not fill appropriately. I added water during the cycle and then the sprayers were working properly until it drained and filled again. Installed the new water inlet valve and all works properly now.

Pulled dishwasher out of cabinet. Layed it face down on a rug. It was very simple to remove the old water inlet valve. Following the video I saw on line was a big help. I put the new valve in its place, stood up the dishwasher,turned on the water and everything was fine. Put the dishwasher back in the cabinet,there were 2 screws that fastened the dishwasher to the cabinet.Very simple.

The water inlet valve had frozen and was leaking water all over my kitchen floor.
