Our 16 year old dishwasher's top rack lost most of the coated metal 'prongs' that separated/supported items on the upper rack.

With a straight edge screwdriver I carefully removed the plastic end caps on the rack support glider-shelves, replaced the old rack with the new rack, and then reattached the end caps.

I felt better about ordering the part Online after having talked to a sales person since there were several racks from which to choose. She reassured me that I was ordering the correct part number. I am a woman and 62 years of age, and I was pretty sure this installation would be a no-brainer. I just wanted to make sure I had the right part for the job.

Water Leaking from Door

The lower spray arm of this model has a chronic problem with the plastic seams splitting and the horizontal blast causing door leaks. This was the third spray arm replaced on this unit. Rather than simply replacing the spray arm with the OEM device purchased, I used a solder gun to reweld the seam on the spray arm. I expect that the additional welding will provide many more years of service than the OEM replacement part. They should really improve the quality of the replacement part to prevent splitting. A metal replacement would be worth $50 and provide a better repair than the plastic arm.

REPLACED RACKS, LOWER RACK HAS DESIGN FLAW

  • Customer: GREG from Castle Rock CO
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins

  • 4 of 6 people found this instruction helpful
Replaced upper and lower racks. The new lower rack has a design flaw: it has 3 wheels on each side, but should have 4 wheels on each side. When you pull out the bottom rack, the last set of wheels drop down into the open space where the door hinges to the cabinet, causing the dishes to bounce and shake around. Then when you push rack in, you have to lift it back up onto the tracks made for the wheels to roll on. You can't pull the bottom rack out far enough to access the back of the rack very well.

The replacement of the rack was straightforward, but the tower assembly had to be moved to the new rack. The fit is precise and fits only one way.i did break off one tab, but it is held just fine.

Leak in motor shaft seal

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Wrench set, Wrench(Adjustable)

We had had a slow leak on our dishwasher for some time. We were also getting a film left on the dishes and they did not appear clean. Eventually the leak got worse and I had to find the problem. It turned out that in addition to the motor shaft seal leaking, the heating element was out and the installer had done a really bad job, with leaks in the fittings and the wiring not installed properly.

I tried to get the parts locally but they were not in stock and needed a week to arrive. With family coming to visit, I ordered the parts from Parts Select on Monday and they arrived Tuesday. That afternoon, I had everything back together and it is working great.

Simply had to replace the clips in the correct position. Would have been a five minute job if I had noticed which way around the old parts went before removing them from the dishwasher to find replacements. It's amazing hoe many permutations there were before it all fit together perfectly.

The machine would no longer clean dishes.

I discovered that, except for the central tower, all the spray holes were all plugged with I took to be calcium deposites . Using the parts diagram located on this web site, I removed parts. All parts can be removed either by hand, nutdriver or small wrench however you do need a star drive (simliar to an allen wrench) to remove the Pump Cover and Secondary Filter. The Lower Spray Arm unsnaps from the Pump Cover and Secondary Filter. I laboriously removed the deposits from each part down as far as the support filter. The upper spray arm can be removed by unsnapping the hub. the Pump Cover and Secondary Filter is a closed unit so. I purchased a new one. The process is very labor intensive. Next time I am going to consider purchasing all new parts or calling a repair man.

Tjhe nylon piece that attaches the spring to the door broke.

  • Customer: Herbert from Mechanicsville MD
  • Difficulty: Very Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours

Attaching the part to the door only took a few minutes but getting the dishwasher out over the hardwood floor that was installed after the appliance was put in was a pain. I had to remove a piece of the hardwood floor and use some technique to get it out of the opening so that the springs were visable. There is no problem after that. I would recommend using work gloves to stretch the spring over the retaining notch on the door so that you don't pinch your hand.
