Wouldn't empty the water

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.

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

  • Customer: Gardner from Old Saybrook CT
  • 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!!

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!

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

Dishwasher was leaking caused by a cracked brass nut attaching to the heating element.

First I removed the two screws that hold the dishwasher in place, I pulled out the dishwasher and on the bottom right located the leak. The two brass nuts that hold the heating element in place. The wires had been rusted to the element so I cut the wires (and later spliced them back together) and unscrewed the brass nuts. I ordered the part after finding them very easily on partselect.com and 2 days later screwed them back on to the dishwasher. Spliced the wires back together and put the dishwasher back in place.

Easy Fix.

I had to remove the dishwasher from under the counter, flip it on it's side to gain access to the discharge hose attachment point, removeit, remove the other end of the hose from the sink-side and replace the hose. The sink-end of the hose has a 'collar' that must be cut to fit the fitting on the sink.

Noisy Drain Pump

  • Customer: Chris from Rockledge FL
  • Difficulty: Easy

The drain pump was making a high pitched buzzing noise which told us that its days were numbered. When I ordered the pump I found out that the dishwasher was really made by Electrolux for Whirlpool. Taking the pump off was a simple matter of removing two hose clamps and prying the pump off the frame. The hard part was realizing that it just pulled off without damaging anything. The new pump easily slipped right in and the screw in hose clamp was easily installed. However, the hose clamp that required pinching with the pliers was not that easy. I had to use a screwdriver to push it all the way on while holding the clamp open with the pliers. All in all pretty easy.

Dishwasher was leaking out of door seal. Sent PartSelect the brand and model number of the dishwasher and they did the rest. The replacement part was exactly the same as the old part. Delivery was fast and efficient. Only took a few minutes to replace and the dishwasher is back in running condition
