First, I looked up a parts diagram on Google. Once I found it, I looked up a repair video, and found a specific on for the upper spray arm. Then I went on Amazon, found the part, and ordered it. Three days later the part came in. First I removed the upper rack. Then I removed the remaining broken part from the top of the dishwasher (required large channel locks because it was on so tight). Then I screwed on the new spray arm, replaced the upper rack, and it was done....EASY!

Inlet valve wasn't letting water in

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

Turned off water and power! Couldn't move dishwasher out, so access was a little problem. Worked to disconnect inlet hose. Finally unscrewed the whole unit, disconnected the outlet hose and the power connection and then unscrewed the unit from the inlet hose. Removed the ell from old unit, applied Teflon tape, and screwed it into new unit. (Tighten it really well. I didn't and had to take things apart again!) Installed new unit starting with the inlet tube, then the outlet tube then the frame screws. Turned water and power back on and tested the dishwasher. SUCCESS! My wife thinks I'm a hero.

I turned off the water, turned off the circuit breaker and disconnected the wiring. I tried to disassemble the motor but could not without scrapping the part. It will work just noisy. I ordered & installed the new motor without any problem. The new motor was a little noisy the first 5 minutes. I figure the initial noise was due to the brushes seating .

No water getting inside the dishwasher, making a loud squeeling noise.

I'm a girl and it was pretty simple. I pulled out the dishwasher, removed the bottom plate cover. Removed the water line to the inlet valve and made sure the water was getting to the valve (it was). Removed the electical connector from the valve. Removed the valve and installed the new one. Made sure the water was pumping into the dishwaser. Pushed the dishwasher back into place. Runs great.

machine was not filling

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

First, I unplugged the dishwasher. After removing the under counter mounting screws, I pulled the dishwasher out from the cabinets. Because the switch is hard to reach, I put the dishwasher on its side (very carefully). Make sure to drain the dishwasher first, or it will leak all over your kitchen. To remove the switch, I unscrewed the single black screw in the middle of the switch and unplugged the electrical wires. I put the new switch in its place, screwed in the screw, and plugged in the electrical connection. I set the dishwasher upright, and ran it through a cycle before reinstalling it into the cabinet. I had previously tried replacing the water inlet valve, but that was not the problem.

The dishwasher leaked water at the bottom of the door.

The door gasket, part 154576501 did the trick. Your website was very helpful; it listed the percentage of times that the part resolved the problem. Very useful when you are guessing what the cause may be. It took me a little while to figure out how to put it in. It didn't seem like it set in place, but upon closer inspection I noticed a track to house the gasket. You don't have to take the door off, but doing so helped me to make sure the gasket was properly installed.

Opened door fully, removed the tray. I was unable to remove the bottom gasket, or even see it at first. Many years of use actually made the gasket stick pretty firmly to where it was. Used my needle nose to pinch it and it came out very easy when I pulled. Cleaned the area ( and it needed it!) slid the new gasket in place without a problem. The Tub gasket came out without a hitch. Measured it to the new one and cut to length. Stuffed it in the crack and did some dishes. Small leak still in same spot. It's kinda of a funky fit in the corner so was a little more careful stuffing it in and it worked fine after that. Thanks...cheap, quick fix.

The close door code kept going off and was leaking on the bottom.

Unscrew the threaded base by twisting counter clockwise. Align the new base and upper spray arm to the threads where old part was removed and turn clockwise. Hand tighten only.

The spray arm on the upper section of the dishwasher kept falling off. The small washer broke off.

After many practices trying to replace the broken spray arm, it was a breeze to replace the new arm. I did not have to take off the upper rack as shown in the video. It took me about 2 minutes at best to screw the new arm in place. The dishwasher is working well. Thanks for your interest.

Not enough water to clean dishes

I used the flow chart online to determine the water inlet valve (WIV) was probably the problem. 1: Cut the power (circuit breaker) 2: turn off the water 3: Removed the lower, front panel (depending on age, you may want to replace the screws) 4: Disconnected electrical cord, waste water line and fresh water supply. This is when the bucket comes in handy. The waste water is NASTY!. At this point, I pulled the DW out and rolled it on its side (Bucket time). I removed the defective part and replaced it easily Simple swap. Clean the old teflon tape off the threads and put fresh tape on. Then I reversed the instructions and opened the water. Check for leaks before you finalize the installation. Then power it up and run a cycle to test. I took a coffee cup and put it in the top rack right side up and checked it periodically. If it keeps getting filled up, it's working. Then i ran a dishwasher cleaner through it, as it had developed a case of the crud sitting still. The new part is quieter than the old one, I can't even hear the water running into the DW now. I am SO happy that $30 worth of parts kept me from spending $500 on a new DW. Thank you Parts Select!, your installation video is great.
