We recently purchased a new home and it didn't matter how hot we ran the water in the sink before starting the dishwasher, the dishes, especially glasses, were filthy. Extra rinse cycles, pots and pans cycle, nothing worked. After finding this site, we took the chance on what the troubleshooter recommended and bought the accumulator filter and wash impeller. The parts came so fast! We followed the videos on this site step by step and we were successfully able to replace the filter and impeller. The impeller was COATED in nasty slimy grossness; it was obvious the previous owners never rinsed their dishes before running the dishwasher. After replacing these two parts, we have clean dishes! We have switched from tablets to liquid detergent which also helped (not sure why, tablets have worked at our old house just fine).

Dishwasher left residual water at end of cycle.

Very straight forward repair. Parts Select provided the right part with very timely (regular FedEx)delivery. Repairclinic.com provided excellent video to show basic repair steps. Suggest using a "star" tip screw driver to disassemble interior parts of the machine to clean out years of gunk which will reduce the chance that the drive motor will bind/fail (which mine did and which saved me the cost of a new motor or new dishwasher). Upon reassembly, be sure to check water supply copper compression fittings for leaks that moving the machine can cause. Place pads under "feet" of machine to avoid marring wood floor when moving machine.

Dishes on bottom rack not clean

  • Customer: Kathryn from Apopka, FL

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.

The discontinued the latch alone, so you must buy the entire micro-switch and latch assy. You take off the door screws with the Torx driver, prop the inner panel temporarily out of your way, fight the terminal connectors OFF the old micro-switches w/needlenose pliers, slid the new connections ON, lay the assy in it's "slot" (which IS well engineered) carefully replace the inner door panel, start a few screws, make sure it's aligned at EACH screw and tighten. TA-DAH. Did I mention turn the power OFF first?? It may bite ya.

With the door open to the dishwasher I remove the inner cover with the appropriate screw driver. I then removed the two electrical plugs from the latch and lifted it out of the door. The new piece went back in reverse. Took less than 15 minutes.

Plastic handle retainers broke

  • Customer: Christopher from Suttons Bay, MI

  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

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 !!!!
