Wasn't able to disconnect the dishwasher directly so I turned off the power to the kitchen from the circuit breaker box. Used my cordless drill and the correct size star bit to remove the screws holding the inside door panel - lickety split. The screws around the door latch when removed also held the switch in place. Removed the two wire connections using needle nose pliers taking care not to damage the connections. Connected the new latch assembly - put it in place making sure the release handle was thru the door. Re-installed the door panel beginning with the screws holding the latch. Closed the door, turned on the electricity and tested the switch. Everything was operating. Spent some time with my wife explaining the touch required to open the dishwasher so we wouldn't have to repeat the repair in the near future.

I initially took everything out and cleaned everything with the shop vac, and outside with the garden hose. That did not work, so I looked on parts select for a new accumulator filter, as I was not able to clean that very well. To install the new filter, I removed the sliding racks, top and bottom, and the water manifold, then removed the lower wash arm, then the parts under that, the filter plate, the outlet, the impeller, all the way to the accumulator filter. After removing that, installation was the reverse. I also cleaned the middle washing arm, and the lower, as I noticed food particles blocking the outer holes. All is good now, and the dishwasher, which we use almost every day, is working fine.

Dishwasher Did Not Clean And Drain Properly

Routine repair. There are videos on the net that show exactly how to replace the filter unit. However, when you order the filter, order a replacement pump impeller. The impeller must be removed to remove the filter on this model. The impeller was stuck on the shaft, and I had to destroy it with the side cutter pliers to get it off. Before putting the new one on, clean the pump shaft thoroughly and lube the shaft with silicon lube or vaseline jelly. Clean the bottom of the water pan thoroughly, then reassemble. Then pour one cup of vinegar in the bottom of the dishwasher and run it with no dishes. This will clean the inside of the dishwasher.

Followed video. Everything went together fine, but leaked water around motor shaft seal. Read comments section on video and someone had the same problem. I had pushed the seal into base too deep. I pulled it out and reseated it. It worked without leaking after that. Bob

Dishes and glasses were left with little specks of food on them.

We watched the very excellent video on this web site for replacing the Accumulator Filter and followed the instructions it provided. It's possible that we could have just cleaned our existing accumulator filter once we understood what it was and how to get to it, but the results of replacing it have been dramatic. It's like a new dishwasher.

Simply removed the interior door panel liner by removing several screws. Unplugged the handle from the switches and removed from equipment. Plugged in new handle which came with switches and reinstalled the interior liner panel. Simple as that !! Very, very easy. I did however have to remove the vent to take off the interior panel and in doing so broke some little plastic part that was not available for purchase separate from the entire vent unit. In the end I needed a $27 handle, but had to buy a $49 vent - it still cost less than the service call alone !! And, the delivery was super fast - unbelievable !!! Probably faster than the service man !!!!

Dishwasher would not move through the normal cycles

Removed all phillips screws inside door panel and separated panel form door enough to access the control board. No need to disconnect the wiring harness except where it connects to the control board. Used nut driver to remove screws holding the control panel to the door. Gently tugged the various circuit bundles to remove each from panel except the ribbon circuit in the very first position, this is secured by slide/clamp which should be slid outward with fingertips, ribbon connector will then easily disengage. To install new panel simply reverse the removal process being especially careful to insert the ribbon circuit all the way into the slot before reengaging the slide/clamp. Secure the control panel to the door and then reattach the cover -. Good Luck.

poor water flow into the dishwasher

Replaced the valve from the side. Easy and quick. The program to identify the part is excellent. The big concern is getting the right part.

I went online and determined what the possible dishwasher parts would cause no water entering. The most recommended part was a valve. I ordered it and afterword obtained a ohmmeter and determined the part in my washer was not faulty. It tested the same as the new part I sent for. The real problem was the connecting metal flex hose that I had installed when I put it in. It had a valve built in that prevents water to flood the kitchen if the hose becomes broke. Even though I tested it out and found water flowing through it, the valve when under pressure had gotten plugged up with dirt particles that caused it to malfunction. I changed the hose and Wa La everything worked fine. I in fact did not have to change the so-called faulty valve. I suggest a detailed evaluation of the problem before purchasing parts. With electrical components it is practically impossible to know if they are faulty without an ohmmeter. Some valves become stuck and if unplugged then plugged back in they will reset themselves. I suggest that if one does not know what they are doing, refrain from messing with electrical parts. Don J.
