I knew I needed a faucet adapter, but thought I could just go to my local home depot and get the part...not so much. After 3 trips and not getting the part I truly needed I ordered the part from partselect. I received it literally the day after I ordered it, screwed in place with no tools, attached the coupler/hoses to the faucet and washed dishes. I wish I would have ordered the part from partselect before even bother with home depot. I would have saved myself a lot of trouble! Extremely happy! Thank you!

Our dishwasher was not heating up to dry dishes

  • Customer: Claude from Helotes TX
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Wrench(Adjustable)

All steps were easy except the Maytag layout made it hard to get to the fittings to remove and reconnect the water line. After that we just moved the dishwasher from beneath the counter and laid it down on the front. Removing and testing the old heater element was easy. The hardest part of installing the element was the odd clips inside the dishwasher. I need to return the o-ring and nuts because you included them with the heating element.

Broken Dishwasher Switch

The repair went well. Got the part in the mail faster than expected. It took longer to take off the cover to the dishwasher that it did to replace the part. It could not have been simpler. Don't be a stud, be sure to unplug the dishwasher. You will be dealing with exposed conductors.

This was a simple repair. Make sure the dishwasher is turned off by an external switch or circuit breaker. Use a star head screw driver to remove the screws from the inside of the door. Lift the top side of the door panel and prop it open (don't bother to remove the wires connecting the panel to the door). Lift out the door latch assembly. If possible remove the plugs from the two switches included in the latch assembly. I had trouble with this step, and simply removed the switches by depressing the two plastic tabs that held them in place. I then removed the switches from the replacement latch. Reconnect the old switches to the new latch (or insert the plugs if you succeeded in that step). Lay the new latch back in place, lower the panel and screw it back into place.

Took off the 11 screws holding the inner paner of the door. Plastic parts holding the handle to the door latch broke into many pieces. Disconnected the two electrical connections from the door latch, also labeled them so I would know where to place them on the new latch. Reconnected the electrical connections and put the inner door panel back on. Done

Actually ... I didn't repair the latch, my wife did. We both saw that the latch was broken, but I wanted to buy a new dishwasher or call for a repair guy. My wife said, "Why? We can fix this ourselves." The next thing I knew, my wife was watching You Tube to find out how to repair the latch. Next, my wife looked up the part, found your company on-line, read some reviews and asked me to order it for us. The part literally was here the next day without extra shipping. We were amazed! Everything was installed without a problem, and the latch works fine. Thank you so much: The Rickey Family

CLEAN WATER LEAKAGE AT BOTTOM OF DOOR

  • Customer: NICHOLAS from PARMA OH
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
AFTER REPLACING THE DOOR FOAM STRIP AND THE SOAP DISH GROMMET I STILL HAD THE WATER LEAKAGE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE DOOR, IN FACT A BIT MORE LEAKAGE. THEN I REPLACED THE FOAM INSULATOR STRIP ON THE INNER DOOR. STILL HAD THE LEAKAGE! I OPENED THE DOOR AFTER THE WATER FINISHED THE FILL CYCLE AND NOTICED THE WATER LEVEL WAS UNUSUALLY HIGH. APPARENTLY THE WATER FLOAT WAS PARTIALLY STUCK ALLOWING AN OVER FILL. I PUSHED ON THE FLOAT DOWNWARD A FEW TIMES AND REMOVED SOME OF THE WATER AND RE-RAN THE WASHER. THE LEAK WAS REDUCED TO A FEW DROPS. REMOVED THE FLOAT AND SOAKED IT IN VINEGAR TO CLEAN IT AND THIS CURED THE PROBLEM.

Broken Handle and Latch

  • Customer: Sharon from Ravenna MI
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
The latch on the dishwasher broke and we thought we would have to buy a new one. I figured I couldn't break it any more than it was already broken, so I took the inside panel off to see if I could fix it. Searched the part online and found out the replacement was only $30...MUCH cheaper than a new washer. So I ordered the part, got it THE NEXT DAY, and had it fixed in under 15 minutes! Brilliant!
