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!!!

This install was very simple. Remove the inside door panel. Disconnect the two leads from the old latch. Connect the leads to the new latch and reattach the door panel. Removing the leads from the old latch was a bit difficult and required a bit more force than expected. The new latch operates perfect.

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...

Handle Broke

  • Difficulty: Really easy

Turned off electricity, Removed screws, realized the only fix was either a new handle(no longer available) or one of the 3 Complete switch and handle assembly s available from Parts Select (which I found by googling Dishwasher using Dishwasher door handle. Several days later the part arrived via Fedex Home Delivery. It then was just a matter of disconnecting the 4 connecters to the switches, then reconnecting the connectors to the new Switches(note; don't cheat and reuse the old switches), then you line up the new assembly with the holes in the top panel, reinstall the screws, turn on the electricity and verify the fix by running a load of dishes. As they say, easy peasy. Cost $30 which included shipping and handling.

Turned off dishwasher breaker in electrical panel. Removed all 11 torx head screws around inside perimeter of the dishwasher door. Lifted inside panel so that I had access to latch assembly. Removed electrical leads from switches of broken assembly and attached them to new assembly. Reversed the steps to reassemble door. Tested latch to make sure it worked. Re-energized breaker in electrical panel. **It is important to note that the dishwasher should be de-energized during this fix. Whether you do so by unplugging the power cord or turning off the breaker, remove power and save yourself from getting lit up.
