Wouldn't empty the water

  • Customer: Blake from Bettendorf IA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

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

  • Customer: Justin from Miami FL
  • Difficulty: Easy

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

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.

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!!

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!

door spring replacement

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

It was very simple once I figured out where the end of the spring should go. Fortunately the entire side of the dishwasher was visible from under the sink cabinet. Otherwise, the dishwasher would have to be removed from under the counter top. One end of the spring attaches to the door bracket. Unfortunately, the other end attaches near the floor and the anchor point is impossible to see. I had to go by feel. I am well past my prime and I don't bend very easily - and getting down on the floor is agony (worse getting up). It took a long time on the floor to find the anchor point - the diagram that I got from Frigidaire support wasn't all that helpful. All in all, fairly simple but extremely frustrating.

I turned the power off at the circuit breaker. I then took the access panel off the dishwasher at the bottom. I pulled the wire off the connector. I used a plied to remove the broken washer and replaced with new part. I put everything back in reverse order and ran the dishwasher. I than checked for leaks over two days while the machine was running and everything was fine. Thank you Parts Select for saving me $500!

I measured the length of the gasket, using the old one to measure the length. Cut it to that length and installed it. VERY SIMPLE TO DO! But it didn't stop my leak--turns out there was a small leak in the bottom of the tub that was easily fixed with some silicone. The dishwasher's like new now!

After i identified where it was leaking i cut the vave off under sink so i could remove part. All it had was 2 screws holding it to the frame and of course the copper line. I then went online to parts select and within 2 days my part arrived,i was planning on being down for at least a week but not with part select!! Thank you all for the great service!

First I pulled out the old gasket and replaced with the new one. The new one is too long on purpose but only had to be trimmed a little for a perfect fit. Very easy and now no leaks.

Spring on Door Broke

  • Customer: David from Riverdale NY
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 3 of 5 people found this instruction helpful
I took the door off by removing the two screws that hold the it in place. I removed the two screws that secures the diswasher to the cabinets. I slide out the unit approx 3 inches. I attached the new spring and linkage (very simple to see how it connects).

I pushed the unit back in, secured it to the cabinet and put the door back on.

That's it! Easy. I saved at least $150 service call with Sears.
