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.

The dishwasher was not getting dishes clean

  • Customer: Vickie from Lincoln NE
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins

We had tried to use dish washer cleaners, and they would work for a time, but we started spending more money on cleaner than we wanted. I ordered and then I replaced the lower spray arm. It took a little effort to get the top screw off, due to hard water deposits. The new one went on very easily, just screwed right in like the old one. It's working great and I really don't mind not getting a new one or paying for a service call!!!

Door lock would not engage. So since the door wouldn't lock, the dishwasher wouldn't run. (it's safety mechanism)

I removed the door panel by unscrewing the 12 allen screws and found that the handle hinges broke & latch assembly locking gear was worn down...just normal wear & tear. this diagnostic process just took 45 minutes...remove the door, identify the problem, remove the parts, reassemble the door. I then ordered the parts online.

Once the parts arrived, it took me less than 45 minutes to re-remove the door, reconnect the 4 wires to latch assembly, snap the latch handle into place, and reassemble the door.

When I tried to remove the hold down screw for the impellar, the impellar broke in half. I actually did npt need to go this far with disassembly as the problem was with water being retained in the rinse arm assembly and stagnating. This was due to calcium buildup clogging the drain holes. Clearing the holes resolved the problem.

I asked my husband if I ordered the parts would he change them for me, and when they arrived, it looked so simple I did it myself. I removed the washer arm by unscrewing the disk that holds it in place. I took the metal heat deflectors off the old arm (they just easily pried off) and put them on the new. I lifted off the large round "plate" that the arm rests on and cleaned the underside. Then put it back together in reverse order.

Dishwasher door leaking severely

I decided to do some regular maintenance on the dishwasher. The spray arm and components have been caked from our hard water and soap. I unwittingly broke the seal on a portion of the spray arm to try and clean. I did not know it was sealed, thought it could snap. The broken seal created a high pressure stream that pushed the door enough to let water leak out.

Replacing it was easy. Unscrewed the plastic nut, lifted out spray arm and disc, unsnapped arm from disc and replaced new one. Leak is now fixed. This part was much much cheaper than i imagined and brought new life to our dishwasher. Best.Store.Ever.

Dishes weren't getting clean

Using the break down view suppled by the PartSelect website I removed the parts covering the broken pump impala. The busted impala also scored the pump housing, which also needed to be replaced. For added measure, I replaced the O rings I encountered (alway a good thing to do while your in there). The shaft of the motor is rusted and I needed to break off the last of the impala with small chisel and some light taps. Before reassembling I used some fine grit sandpaper on the shaft, don't go wild here, a tight fit is better than a sloppy one. Total time on the repair wasn't that long. (But don't tell the wife, it bought me a cupple quarters of football!)

removed old and broken and replaced. The best part was, the turn around time from partselect. The fastest delivery of anything I ordered that part a 2 in the afternoon and had it the NEXT day, without specifiying any extra rush shipping. Right part too! Amazing job! Thanks
