ordered "stud roller part", basically an axle for the wheel which clips on to the tray rack. Simply removed the old clip from each wheel, placed new clip on wheel (had to use a hammer to snap it in place), then cliped it to rack by hand. very easy solution. Tray rack rolls perfectly and me wife is very happy.

Just have a good look at how the original is installed before removing, then clean the area. The new one was a breeze to install, just line it up and pop it in.

the soap dispenser door had broken off

  • Customer: Pierangela from River Forest IL
  • Difficulty: Easy

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Open the door and go along entire edge of door and use Philipps to unscrew the front panel of the door from the inside panel of the door. Once unscrewed open carefully. There are screws in the dispenser cup. Undo those and then there are two plugs to be undone. There is also the main black computer component that has to be unplugged from its cord. Just remove and screw everything back the way it was. This was my first time and I am a female age 58 years old. It was simple. If I had to do it again I could do it in less than half the time.

I wasn't sure I had the right part because the wheel axles are now different to the ones I had. But they clipped on fine so obviously the design has changed. They clipped in no problem at all and now it all works brilliantly. So simple I can't believe it took me so long to order the parts!

Standing water in bottom of washer at end of cycle.

  • Customer: Ryan from Blaine WA
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers, Wrench(Adjustable)

Found numerous references on internet that most likely cause was due to a fouled or plugged suction screen. I unscrewed anchor tabs on top securing the dishwasher to the countertop, slightly lowered the front screw legs, turned off circuit breaker at the electrical panel, checked to verify the power was off, removed the small electrical cover under the dishwasher and disconnected the 3 wire nuts, pulled the dishwasher partially out, then disconnected the small corrugated drain hose from the discharge pump under the washer being careful to collect small amount of drain water in a bowl. Finally, carefully pulled dishwasher out from under the countertop leaving the hot water supply hose connected. Tipped washer over onto back (the frame rails are rounded in the back to help facilitate this). Had to unscrew the hose clamps to remove the rubber sump. Then stood the dishwasher back up to disassemble the plastic screen parts from inside the dishwasher. The screen was in fact plugged with white slimy deposits that when dried became chalk like. During cleaning out the white caked on deposits in the rubber sump, I accidentally pushed my screwdriver through a rubber vent stand tube and this is why I had to buy a new rubber sump. The sump rubber material appeared to be partially deteriorated which is why my screwdriver passed through it. Reassembly wasn't very easy. It was difficult to get the rubber sump boot over the plastic flange on the bottom of the tub. It helped to remove the metal hose clamp completely and to have someone hold the dishwasher in place lying on its back while I pushed and prodded to get the rubber seal over the oval flange. Once on, everything went back together easily in reverse order. It probably took me a total of 6 to 8 hours of real working time. But taking into account that I only worked for short periods of time on evenings after work and the fact I had to lug around my extra 70 lbs of gut, the constant laying down and getting back up, the 4 day wait for the new rubber sump to arrive, and my near senior citizen age stretched this 8 hours of work out to a two week home repair project. BUT, I was successful and everything is back to perfect working order. Thank you Partselect.com for having the sump in stock and to my door in only 4 days!

Removed and inverted the DW. Removed the impeller, grinder, screen and seals then the actual shaft seal. Replaced with new parts in reverse order. Instructions provided with the seal kit were simple and excellent. They were right to the point.
