Repair seemed easy enough however it took a while to make the arm fit in to the grooves. Once it was aligned it did not take long. No tools necessary. The parts delivery was quick and excellent. Parts arrived in one day. Would use the company again for sure.

Leakikng around the motor

Removed dishwasher from under the counter. Tipped it onto the door to access the motor. The Bracket requires the use of a torque bit in the screwdriver. Removed the bradket and pulled out the motor. Replaced the O-rings and put on a new bracket. Reinstalled the dishwasher, but it still is leaking. Removed dishwasher and motor again. After a more thorough inspection, I noticed that the motor itself is leading through a weep hole inside the casing. The hole is located between the bracket and the dishwasher housing so it makes it appear to leak around the O-ring. Be sure to check the weep hole in the motor itself.

Water leak at bottom corners of door

Removed the old seal, which was a little stuck because of residue buildup from hard water. I used a pair of needle-nose pliers to get a grip on the old seal, then slid my finger underneath to separate the rest of the seal. Once removed, cleaned up the area and slid in the new seal which slotted in quite easily.

I pulled out the dishwasher to expose how the strike was attached. Unscrewed the 2 screws and found the part on your site. The part number had been changed. I ordered a new part and tracked with your easy to track delivery info. It arrived in 3 days. I attached my new part with 2 screws, slid the diswasher back in place. I am a happy camper! Thank you, Julia

Thank you for your fast service, ordered Monday, recieved pump Wednesday.

Door Spring Failed on One Side

  • Customer: William from Brooklyn NY
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
This was a simple repair. Although only the right side spring failed, I purchased and installed new springs and linkage for both sides being that the unit is about 10 years old. After removing the 2 screws in the kick-plate and the 2 screws holding the dishwasher in place, I pulled the dishwasher out and replaced the springs and linkage within 15 minutes. The total job took me about 25-30 minutes in total including cleanup.

I ordered a new upper spray arm. Detached the old arm holder using a rag because it was on there very tightly. I had to use a pair of scissors to hold the connector to keep it from sliding up while screwing on the new piece. It was super easy and the video was right on. After finding something to hold the connector tube comin out of dishwasher top it took about 30 seconds. Super easy!
