This company is a keeper !!! Fast, perfect service !! The part was different than what I had, but, it was better !!!! No kidding, it was far sturdier than the lousy basket that was originally with the dishwasher. . . . . This basket also can be split into 2 smaller baskets and relocated to other areas of the dishwasher, as well as having removable "lids" to keep flyaway things in place. . . . . . I was so pleasantly surprised at this great service, great product and great price. . . . . . For once, something was totally 100% hassle free !! :))))) One very happy customer here !!! This store is in my "favorites" stash!

Unplug the dishwasher. Next, remove the Torx (T20) screws around the edge of the door. There are 4 screws with a 1/4 inch head that hold the control panel onto the door. 2 of these are under the electronics unit, which is held on by an additional 2 screws with 1/4 inch heads. The latch mechanism fits into a slot on the control panel, but it does not need to be disconnected from the wiring in order to remove it. The ribbon cable that attaches the control panel to the electronics box slips out of the connector easily, but you should pull back on the catch of the connector to attach the ribbon cable for the new control panel. Assembly is in reverse order of disassembly.

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.

The glasses on the top rack had food particles in them after a wash cycle

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

I just followed another persons directions that was in the system already. He had a great idea by taking the new switches out of the new latch and replacing them with the old ones from the bad latch. The old switches are still good and it made for a simple repair. This way you didn't have to disconnect the wire from the switches and now you have two new switches on hand. The old switch had a burnt spot on the connector.

The dishwasher door latch was broken and would not hold the door closed.

I unplugged the dishwasher under the sink. I opened the dishwasher up and took out the 12 screws holding the inside door facing on. I gently moved the door facing down towards the dishwasher to reveal the door locking mechanism at the top of the door. I unplugged the mechanism and plugged in the new one. I put the door back together the same way I had taken it apart. In all it took about 12 minutes. Works like a charm.

Removed old racks -- easy. New lower rack slid right into proper position. Upper rack -- had to unclip the rotating water supplier from underside of old rack and position it on the underside of the new rack, carefully noting the removal process to facilitate re-placing the water supplier onto the new rack. No tools needed -- very easy. New upper rack slid right back into proper position.
