Repair was very quick. Pop the lock on each rail endcap with a flathead screwdriver, remove endcap and set aside. One at a time, unclip each wheel from it's mount point and replace with new wheel, clipping it back into place. Once all four are done, reinsert the end caps and re-engage the locks (can be done by hand. Total repair time was maybe 5 minutes. Upper rack slides like new again.

Dishwasher started leaking

  • Customer: Peter from Natick, MA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Pulled the dishwasher out from the counter. Wiring and supply hose were long enough that I did not need to disconnect them. Suspected a leak in the injector hose but the evidence was circumstantial. That is mineral deposits collected around the area where the house connects to a small plastic box and then into the dishwasher. I replaced the hose in a few minutes and added a clamp on the box side where no clamp was called for. So far, no leaks.

Dishwarsher was making loud almost grinding type noise

I followed the video instructions except I had no idea what tools he was using because he talked so fast, but I figured it out myself. I could not get the guard off but I worked around it. Then I took off the discharge piece. The impeller needed to come off and I unscrewed it but the impeller was stuck tight to the diswasher. It did not slide off like in the video. I ended up having to break up the impeller with pliers until it fell apart enough to take off.That was the only semi difficult part. I replaced impeller. The new screw I ordered did not fit on my machine??? So I used the old one again. I reassembled all and the dishwasher now works good. Still makes a little noise which could be normal. Nothing like it was making.

First replaced the door seal, that slowed it down substantially, but not totally. Next replaced inner door foam insulation strip and that took care of it, no more leaks. There was some corrosion evident after I scraped off the old strip, sanded that smooth with emery sandpaper and then installed new strip. Job done!

Clean Water Leakage At Bottom Of Door

  • Customer: NICHOLAS from PARMA, OH
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

After replacing the door foam strip and the soap dish grommet I still had the water leakage at the bottom of the door, in fact a bit more leakage. Then I replaced the foam insulator strip on the inner door. Still had the leakage! I opened the door after the water finished the fill cycle and noticed the water level was unusually high. Apparently the water float was partially stuck allowing an over fill. I pushed on the float downward a few times and removed some of the water and re-ran the washer. The leak was reduced to a few drops. Removed the float and soaked it in vinegar to clean it and this cured the problem.
