bottom of silverware basket broke

  • Customer: Nora from Wilmington, DE
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 3 of 4 people found this instruction helpful
received new basket without a basket handle; had to remove handle from old basket & attach it to new basket; took 2 separate tries to remove old handle & each try took about an hour; used screwdriver & pliers but had to be careful not to break handle; eventually used dimes to pry open & hold the attached sections of the handle open in order to free the handle from the old basket; we sure hope the new basket lasts a lot longer than the 2 years that the old basket lasted before it broke.

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.

1) Emptied Dishwasher (roll-around model)
2) Tipped it onto its back
3) Removed Toe Kick (2 screws) and Bottom Cover (4 screws) (screw driver)
4) Opened Door to access side panel (careful not to let it drop on my fingers)
5) Using Torx driver, removed two screws holding side panel on. This makes it easier to access the linkage and spring.
6) Removed broken link
7) Installed new link and spring noting the spring direction from the spring on the other side of the door.
8) Pulled spring over the bottom rail bracket with pliers.
9) Reinstalled panels in the reverse order.

Unscrewed bottom panel. I could see right spring in proper position, left spring lying on floor, and broken linkage. Ordered part from partselect.com. To install, had to unscrew dishwasher attachment to counter, loosen leveling legs, pull it out a bit, then could replace linkage and reattach spring, retighten leveling legs, then push back in and replace screws and bottom panel.

Dishwasher would respond only to the 'drain' command.

Turned off power to the washer. Removed the inside door cover. Removed the old board, carefully noting wire connections. (Take a photo of old board at the beginning, if you feel insecure about this.) Installed new board, carefully plugging wire connectors as they had been on old board. Replaced inside door cover. Restored power to washer. Conducted a test run. THE WASHER WORKS!!
By the way, I received the new board two days after ordering it. Now, that's service!

I undid the four clips that attach the upper dish rack to the dishwasher. The upper arm simply unscrews from the top of the dishwasher. Unsnap clip that holds arm and remove arm. Installation is the reverse of removal.

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.

Snap tabs for wheels on original part broken - resulting in the top rack being loose on one side and falling down when you touched it.

  • Customer: Ann from Grand Rapids, MI
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins

  • 2 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
I aligned the V-shaped tabs on the inner side of the part with the slots in the mating part and simply pulled the old part out (it was already disengaged from the wheels in the metal rail). I then inserted the new part into the slots. One side went in well, but the other side required the part to be bowed slightly to match up the V-shaped tab with the slot. Then the hard part was getting the wheels in position to snap them on. Once in position, it took a bit of effort to engage the snaps in each wheel. I was afraid of breaking the new part. These snaps are very stiff and even with the notch between them there isn't any give, but I was able to apply enough constant, steady pressure to finally get them to snap in without breaking.

Wouldn't come clean.
