The dishwasher was not getting dishes clean

  • Customer: Vickie from Lincoln NE
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Wrench(Adjustable)

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.

The most difficult part is learning how to unsnap the plastic retainers at each end of the steel sliders on each side of the dish rack. Push the end caps to the outside and the plastic inserts will snap open and slide off the ends of the rails in two pieces (note how they were oriented so you can replace them later). The caps must be removed from both ends of each rail. Slide out the basket. slide the rails out. Pull the old rollers off the pins. Place the new rollers into position. A smart rap with the palm of your hand should snap the rollers onto the pins. If you have done it correctly, the rollers will not pull off the mounting pins. You could also place a small block of wood against the roller and use your hand or a small hammer or weight to snap the pins into place. Assemble in reverse order.

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.
