Fully open dishwasher door to horizontal position, remove lower dishwasher rack and relocate to another temp location, grab old lower door seal from right or left corner and pull completely out of door, lay the old bottom seal aside facing the same direction as once installed (seal has a notched side which faces the right side of door), match direction of the new seal with the old seal (match the notched side of seal to the right side of door), gently push the seal into the door starting on the right side (notched side of seal fits tightly into a receiving area inside the door), and finally push the remaining portion of the seal into door (aligning with the right side already properly seated inside dishwasher door). Close dishwasher and run water cycle to confirm leak.

1. Bottom door gasket removed very easy by grabbing left corning and pulling out. Starting with notch on right side, slide the hard plastic side up at a slight angle to catch the slot the gasket will seat in. Slowly moving toward the left, push gasket into seated position. Notch in gasket will make sure it is in correct position. Push gasket all the way in so that it is flush with bottom edge of door. Watch when first sliding gasket in, it has to g at a slight up angle or it will fall into an empty space.
2. Remove Tub gasket by gripping one side and pulling out. Replace in same fashion making sure the angled wedge of gasket is first part that lays flat in slot. Working from one side to the other, make sure the gasket seats completely. Trim excess if necessary.

Appliance read out "err", would not go on

It would sometimes work, which led me to believe it was a switch. Looked on line and found the mail switch to go on was in the latch. I took it apart, 6 screws, wiggled the switch and it went on. So I found the door switch to be bad. It was very simple to change the switch.

Dishwasher would not drain every time

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

First turn the power off! If you have water in the tub, use something like a wet/dry shop vac to drain as much water out as possible. Removing the strainers will help get more out. To remove the smaller horseshoe shaped strainer, pull up and towards the handle. The sprayer is then removed by rotating the base of it slightly. Then you can remove the large strainer. The more water you get out the better! Then remove the kick panel. You will see the drain pump right in front of you with a white and a purple wire. Disconnect the wires by pulling their tabs towards you, and move them out of the way. With a screwdriver, loosen the worm clamp on top of the pump that connects the drain line to the pump. Have a towel handy, even if you got all of the water out, there will still be some in the line. Then take a pair of pliars (long nose may work best, or small channel locks) and compress the clamp on the black hose behind the pump, moving the clamp towards the center of the hose. The pump should now move a little. Pulling the pump towards you, wiggle slightly to try to remove the pump from its support, preferably without breaking the tabs, but keeping them intact is not critical if you are replacing the pump. More water may come out at this point, so be prepaired. Put the new pump in by reversing the process, making sure you do not break the support tabs. Slide the compression clamp into place. Reconnect and tighten the drain line, reconnect the white and purple wires. Dry your work area carefully so you can spot any leaks. Apply power, and run a rinse cycle, watching for leaks. If everything looks ok, kill the power again and reattach the kick plate. Turn power back on one last time, and enjoy your dishwasher again!

Broke nubs off of stem when cleaning

  • Customer: Glen from Chicago IL
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 7 of 7 people found this instruction helpful
I took the bottom parts out. This can basically be done without tools. You need a phillips to unscrew 3 screws to remove the stem. Then easily replace with the new one. Putting the spiny washing part was kinda weird because I was afraid to break the nubs off again. I took the whole bottom carriage out so I could see better, pushed down kinda hard and twisted the right way (figure out which way needs to be twisted before hand by looking through the bottom of the stem).

Unplugged dishwasher, removed the 2 wires clipped to the heating element, removed both cracked nuts, replaced with new nuts from PartSelect, clipped on wires, plugged in and did a test cycle. Based upon service quote from Best Buy, I saved myself $125.00 for just the call out, not including parts and labor.

Easiest repair ever. Part came quickly & came fully assembled. Just screwed the part on by hand and it has worked like new ever since. The original part is 3 separate pieces but the new part was all in one & fit perfectly.

Spray arm came off in wash cycle

The spray arm comes off into 3 parts but is really only supposed to be one. I removed the nut from the old assembly and attempted to place the new assembly on by hand. The new nut seemed to be slightly smaller than the original so it would not attach to the dishwasher. Using a kitchen knife, I removed the new nut from the arm unit and attached the new arm to the original nut and it went back on easily. The connection of the new arm to the new nut was 3 tabs that needed to be depressed with the knife and was a different conection method than the assembly that kept coming off in the wash cycle. The replacement part had a much better design than the original.

Removed the bottom covering on dishwasher and then ran it to figure out where the leak was coming from. Noticed it was dripping off hose, but not actually leaking from hose.

Unplugged dishwasher and slid it out from cabinet area (be sure to turn off and disconnect water supply)

Followed delivery tube up side of dishwasher to top of tub and noticed reminents of where water ran down side of tub.

Loosened delivery tube by plastic nut inside of tube and removed. Noticed gasket was partially depleted.

Ordered new gasket, replaced and put everything back together. (Be sure to use teflon tape on water source fitting and tighten firmly). No leaks

Upper spray are assembly simply screws onto the threaded fitting of the inside ceiling of the dishwasher.

The bottom door gasket simply slides in place. both were done in less than 5 minutes. Be careful the gasket only goes in one way. But it is obvious what way it goes in.

Broken friction cable on the right hand side. Remove screws that hold dishwasher to cabinet, pull out the dishwasher far enough to get to the friction cable and rear spring. Remove broken cable. Attach new cable to rear spring and connect to door hinge. Push back dishwasher and screw in the two screws that keep the dishwasher attached to the cabinet. Very simple.

Replace sump gasket

#1 rule, make sure you valve off the water before removing any hoses. Remove wire trays inside dishwasher and then pull out dishwasher far enough to disconnect water line and power cord. Remove center piece and screen covering sump inside the dishwasher. Turn dishwasher on its side and remove hoses to sump and pump. Disconnect power to sump pump. Loosen retaining nuts that secure the sump and remove. Replace old gasket on sump with new. Turn dishwasher upright. Be careful with placement of new gasket when reinserting sump so that the gasket doesn't come out of position and the sump is centered properly. Secure with retaining nuts from bottom. Reconnect power connector and hoses to sump. Pour enough water into the dishwasher to verify gasket doesn't leak... look with flashlight under dishwasher for signs of water dripping from sump. Reinstall screen and centerpiece in sump inside the dishwasher. Reconnect water line and power cord. Run through wash cycle while monitoring for leaks under dishwasher. Reinstall wire trays.

Piece of cake as long as you get the gasket installed properly and the sump centered correctly... do not overtighten the retaining nuts or it may force the gasket out of position when the screen is secure with the center locking piece over the sump.
