Wouldn't empty the water

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

The unit would not pump the gray water out so I immediately assumed it was a bad pump. Ordered the part and had it the next day. After taking things apart I realized it was a clogged discharge hose and the original pump was still good. Since I had the new pump and everything was already disassembled I decided it would be a good insurance policy to replace the pump anyways. Easy to install. I didn't even have to pull the unit out. Just did it from underneath.

Broken door on dispenser

The only difficultpart was to figure out how to remove the stainless cover from the door. Seems it slides upwards after screws are removed. After that it is self explainatory and goes back together in 5 minutes.

Noisy, vibrating pump

  • Customer: Marshall from Beaverton OR
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Wrench(Adjustable)

After moving the dishwasher out from the cabinetry, I removed the screws holding the pump in place. Pulling the pump from the formed plastic opening, I found a toothpick lodged in the pump housing. At the same time I noticed that the front o-ring was deformed due to being the incorrect size (too large). It was installed at the factory this way.

I went online to search for new parts. PartSelect was the second or third listing on the search page. I submitted the dishwasher model number and was taken to a set of parts illustrations. I was easily able to find the o-rings I needed.

For some strange reason my new dishwasher was installed without a door gasket, which caused a very small water leak. The gasket I purchased was installed in less than 5 minutes and corrected the problem immediately - a very easy task and I am no handyman!

VERY simple---unscrewed three screws on the broken part (the little nubs that held on the bottom spinner were broken off), screwed the new one back in, re-attached the spinner.

I was VERY pleased with the customer service and quick shipping (ordered on Sunday night, the part was delivered Wednesday morning). I would definitely recommend this site to anyone, and would use it again. Five Stars!!!!

Dishwasher leaks

  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Socket set

First point of leakage was the door. Turns out that a gasket at the bottom of the door functions as a wave trap. As the bottom sprayer spins it sprays against the door and creates a small wave of water this gasket was starting to disintegrate, it was letting water surge over the small tray at the doors bottom. Easy to replace just pull down and remove press fit on inside door bottom. Only when this was replaced did I find the real leak but not until I guessed at the tub seal as the leak. Very hard to see where the water really comes from! Turns out it was not the tub seal but a clip that holds the heater element got smashed down from a dropped dish rack at some earlier time and this caused the heat to increase at the clip and eventually heat the clip to extent it melted the tub directly under it. JB Weld to the rescue and we have a waterproof tub again. Well almost! The tub gasket resisted my best efforts to seat correctly and thus required a new tub gasket, still hard to seat but after 2-3 attempts we have a winner. Total cost about 50 bucks vs. 6-700 for a new unit. Wife is happy!!

Remove kick plate. Pump is right up front. Disconnect the two wire from the pump. MAKE sure u have removed all water from dishwasher! There will be a little left in the pump but nothing to worry about. Next on the top of the pump there is a hose clamp. Loosen it and remove the hose. Now use pliers to slide the hose clamp off the lower hose that hooks to the dishwaher. Use a flat head screw driver to push the tabs on the white clip over and pull off the pump. Now just do this in the reverse order. Approx time: 10 minutes
