Dishes on bottom rack not clean

  • Customer: Kathryn from Apopka, FL
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I examined the arm on the floor of the dishwasher and found that it had collided with something sticking through the bottom of the lower rack. One of the jets on the tip of the arm, which was supposed to spray sideways to make the arm spin, was missing its top and now sprayed up. This put the arm off balance and kept it from spinning. I ordered a new arm from PartSelect. It arrived much sooner than I expected. With the pliers, I unscrewed the nut holding the arm on, replaced it with the new arm, and refastened the nut. The next time I used the dishwasher all the dishes on the bottom rack were clean.

Repair was very quick. Pop the lock on each rail endcap with a flathead screwdriver, remove endcap and set aside. One at a time, unclip each wheel from it's mount point and replace with new wheel, clipping it back into place. Once all four are done, reinsert the end caps and re-engage the locks (can be done by hand. Total repair time was maybe 5 minutes. Upper rack slides like new again.

Dishwasher Was Leaking - Air/Water Inlet Port Design Flaw!

  • Customer: William from Asbury Park, NJ
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
The toughest part of this repair was figuring out where the leak was. All the connections were tight. Had to run almost a full cycle before it was apparent that the water/air inlet port was the culprit. Had no idea initially why it was leaking so I ordered all the parts for that component (rental house, 40 miles away). When I pulled the unit out I ran another cycle to see what was leaking and discovered that just enough water was being splashed back into the port from the spray arms and a little was splashing out the top of the component body. I ordered the Air/Water Inlet Foam Insert (although this piece is not shown in the diagrams nor is any description given of where it goes). I surmised that the insert needed to go behind the inlet cover on the inside of the dishwasher with the rounded side up. The cover snaps back into place to hold it in position. Had I know the design flaw in the inlet port exists it would have been a 30-second fix, pop off the inlet cover place the foam in and snap the cover back on. As it was I spent hours diagnosing it and seconds to actually fix it!

Dishwarsher was making loud almost grinding type noise

  • Customer: martha from Punta Gorda, FL
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

I followed the video instructions except I had no idea what tools he was using because he talked so fast, but I figured it out myself. I could not get the guard off but I worked around it. Then I took off the discharge piece. The impeller needed to come off and I unscrewed it but the impeller was stuck tight to the diswasher. It did not slide off like in the video. I ended up having to break up the impeller with pliers until it fell apart enough to take off.That was the only semi difficult part. I replaced impeller. The new screw I ordered did not fit on my machine??? So I used the old one again. I reassembled all and the dishwasher now works good. Still makes a little noise which could be normal. Nothing like it was making.

First replaced the door seal, that slowed it down substantially, but not totally. Next replaced inner door foam insulation strip and that took care of it, no more leaks. There was some corrosion evident after I scraped off the old strip, sanded that smooth with emery sandpaper and then installed new strip. Job done!

I followed the advice on the video provided by PartSelect. It was easy to follow and VEERY easy to change out the old handle with the new one! I'd purchase parts from PartSelect again. You just simply remove the screws on the inside of the door unplug the handle from two wires, take out the old handle (it just lies in position) insert the wires into the new handle, place it in the cradle and put the inside of the door back on and tighten the screws. Nothing to it!
