I first ran a cycle of clear glass to verify that there was something wrong. I pulled an exploded parts diagram off the internet to see what parts there were and to give me an idea how everything came apart. I slowly took piece by piece< keeping all screws seperated with the part they belonged with. I set the parts in the order they came out so I knew what way they would have to be returned to the machine. I cleaned and inspected all parts to ensure they were in working order. When I removed the accumulator filter I noticed all the screens were caked with what appeared to be soap scum. I then noticed one of the screens was tore away from the filters body about a half inch long. I decided to order the part(which was a sunday). The part was on my door step by tuesday morning( with standard shipping). I had the part reinstalled in 10 minutes. The hardest part of the whole job was getting all the slats on the filter to line up with the ones on the cover to be screwed onto it. They need to be lined up or the screws will not go in properly, which would be a whole different bag of worms. The job was seriously simple and the ease of ordering and receiving the part made it that much better. Thank you for being a great service to the service industry.

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...

To be honest it was a very easy repair it actually took longer to disconnect and remove the dish washer from the cabinet than it did to install the heating element. Be sure to have towels ready cause when you tip the dish washer on its front to remove and re install the heating element water will leak out on to the floor.

Removed all the screws holding the inside door panel. Tried to disconnect the four spade lugs going to the two micro switches but the spades would not release. Never had spades that I couldn't release before so that was a bit of frustration. Ended up not wanting to screw with it anymore so just removed the two micro switches from the new door handle assembly and mounted the old ones in their place and reassembling the door. That was the only hang-up, otherwise, the job would of been less than an hour from start to finish.

very simple. I unscrewed the plastic surface of the dishwasher door, took out the old foam pad and put in the new one. It stopped the leak. A very inexpensive and very simple way to fix the problem.
