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.

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.

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 !!!

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...

DW leaving dirt in bottom of glasses

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).

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.

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.

Plastic handle retainers broke

Simply removed the interior door panel liner by removing several screws. Unplugged the handle from the switches and removed from equipment. Plugged in new handle which came with switches and reinstalled the interior liner panel. Simple as that !! Very, very easy. I did however have to remove the vent to take off the interior panel and in doing so broke some little plastic part that was not available for purchase separate from the entire vent unit. In the end I needed a $27 handle, but had to buy a $49 vent - it still cost less than the service call alone !! And, the delivery was super fast - unbelievable !!! Probably faster than the service man !!!!
