I watched the video, read all the post, they all said change the heater. So I did. Only there is a little fuse at the back of the unit that also goes bad and that was my issue. Have it ordered and will be going soon. That said, Part Select made finding and getting my parts a breeze!

Just followed the online instructions. I used white vinegar to clean any residue first. So easy.

Remove the Access Panel retainer from top of the panel. Then remove the Access Panel and the Spacer Panel from the front. Then remove the Extension from the bottom. This step was kind of difficult, I ended up bending the plastic bracket on the pane since I was going to throw it away anyway. Install all the parts onto the new panel in the reverse order. Screw the panel back on to the dishwasher.

The repair was so easy it was ridiculous...simply removed the end cap on the front of the roller assembly, took old one out, added new one and then put the end cap back on! Done in about 2 minutes!

I followed the video's from Parts Select and it took me less than 3 minutes to replace these parts. I did find it easier to use a screwdriver to lift the u shape of the spring over the detergent cup as the pliers tended to pull on the spring too much. Couldn't have been easier or faster, awesome!

Dish washer not draining

I looked up my problem on your site and it took me to the parts most common for that problem. Your site listed the exact parts needed for my model. Got the parts and followed the direction on posted on your site by Andy.The parts were right on when I got it apart the impeller was locked up. Changed the parts without a any additional problem also took the check valve off of the underside front where the drain hose connects and cleaned it. The check valve had string and a tooth pick stuck in it. After all that hook water back up ,turned power back on and it works like a charm. Great site, parts are reasonably priced. Thank you Danny

On older model Kenmore dishwashers the water valve can fail to provide enough water to thoroughly wash the dishes.

Safety First: 1) I shut power off to dishwasher, 2) Shut water off to dishwasher, 3) Checked electrical with tic tracer to confirm power was off after removing bottom dishwasher panel, 4) I checked the orientation of old valve: connection plate, water inlet tubing, hose connection, and electrical connection. Then I removed the 2-screws that held the valve in place with a nut driver. Next I removed the compression clamp from the rubber hose with pliers and a screw driver. Then I removed the compression fitting and copper tubing from the old valve. Note: Kenmore used a compression fitting to connect the copper tubing to the original water valve. That said, I had to remove the old fitting and install a new one (using a pipe cutter on the copper tubing before installing a new compression fitting). I also bought a new valve elbow because the old one was not serviceable. With all three connections made up (the rubber tubing connected to the new valve along with the electrical connection, and the new elbow and compression fitting installed) I tested for leaks and reconnected the holding bracket to the side of the dishwasher frame. Before calling it good I vacuumed out the area under the dishwasher. Note: because the water inlet valve is located close to the floor, all the work had to be done while laying on the floor...awkward. This too, I had to purchase a new valve elbow and compression fitting so halfway through the project I had to make a run to the hardware store. Overall, replacing the water inlet valve on a 10 year old Kenmore dishwasher is an easy project...pretty straight forward but having to go to the hardware store stretched the installation time out to over an hour.

Followed instructions on website (none provided with parts). Since parts were different than original parts, took a little more time to compare. The bumpers on the bottom rack were not described very well so had to guess at installation location.

Roller came apart or broke apart

Water not draining out of dishwater completely

I read everyone else's fixes, which were very helpful but my solution of removing the plastic from the motor shaft was a lot easier than others. I simply used side cutters and made two cuts into that plastic piece and it Fell of. much easier than the person using several Dremmel blades to cut it off.. That was the most difficult phase until I grabbed my ole phone company side cuts and just cut it off in 15 seconds. Thanks for all the other tips. I love dealing with Parts Select, Fast and efficient. Jim W
