Water inlet valve had frozen and burst

  • Customer: Alastair from Atlanta GA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Wrench(Adjustable)
  • 3 of 3 people found this instruction helpful
After turning off the water to the dishwasher, I used the adjustable wrench to remove the incoming water line. Then removed the electrical feed to the water valve. Lastly I removed the rubber hose on the outlet of the valve (after compressing the retaining clip) before removing the one screw that held the valve to the lower frame of the dishwasher. Once the new part arrived, it was simply a matter of reversing the above procedure to install the new part. Took under 15 mins.

soap door on dishwasher broken

  • Customer: george from ten mile TN
  • Difficulty: Very Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Got the new door and tried to put it on. The door went on very easily. However, there's a spring that opens the door when the main wash cycle comes around. I never did get that spring right. None of the drawings showed the correct position and after an hour of trying to get it to work right, I gave up. The door comes open slightly (but not because of the spring) when it's time, and the liquid soap runs out due to gravity. But I wouldn't try to use soap powder because the door doesn't come open far enough.

I removed all the ( what my Husband called star screws ) star screws and removed the housing panel ( holds dish detergent cup and silverware basket ) I discovered everything accross the bottom was all gucked up with detergent soap accumulation. I took the part to the kitchen sink and used the sprayer hose on the part with hot water and it cleaned up beautifully, and the detergent latch then worked ( the spring that operates the latch was all gucked up with detergent accumulation ).
I am the wife and did all of this myself and it only took around 5-10 min. My Husband had to help me figure out the type of screws because they turned out to not be phillip screws, but as Hubby called them.."star screws".
Soooo, I did not need to use the Latch Kit I purchased, so will store it in my parts supply! :)
Happy repairs to you..

water leak at pump house and drive motor shaft interface

  • Customer: tim from westfield IN
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set, Wrench set
  • 4 of 7 people found this instruction helpful
after removeing the mounting and trim screws,water lines and associated wiring, the unit slide easily from under the counter then the fun began.
After several years of being exposed to the terrible water here the parts had become covered in lyme scale.
to make a long story short, most of the parts came out with minor difficulty however the pump motor shaft had corroded and lodged into the pump impellar.
This made removal of the pump motor impossible with out cutting off the end of the impellar and driving the pump motor shaft out.
This is NOT something you want to do.
It seems the engineer who designed the pump motor had it's casing made of plastic.
Driving the pump motor shaft out of the impellar caused the back of the motor houseing to break thus rendering the pump motor useless.
Lesson: If it becomes necessary to cut off the impellar of in the pump housing you must completely split the impellar in two parts.
This I repeat is NOT something you want to do.
I recommend replaceing both motor and pump assembly as a unit.

i took off the kick plate and found the water valve. its the piece that water comes to from under the sink to connect to the dishwaser. it has a plug with 2 wires. i turned off the water supply, disconnected the wires(probably should have flipped the breaker but didnt) took out the 5/16 mounting screws, had to use a little end wrench on 1 because it was behind the water line and a nut driver on the other. i put some thread gook on the connection and put the new one in the way it was and it works great. i am writing this because thats where i got the info to diagnose in the first place and saved me $$$!

Replaced door gasget took 5 minutes tops. Ran cycle and still had leak. Called local repair person. After thoroughly checking out the dishwasher and running soapless cycle determined problem to be soap build up over time. He ran a commercial cleaner through a complete pots and pan cycle. No more suds and no more leak repair complete. Did not actually need door gagset but it was super easy to change and delivery service was great.

Dishwasher was not pumping out water

  • Customer: Shelley from Florence SC
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

My husband did the repair. He sucked the water out with the wet/dry vac. Layed it over on the front and removed the pump motor and replaced it.

These access panels are just plastic. My son's big 10 foot stepped into it and busted the holder for the screw. This was the 2nd time we had to replace this part in 4 yrs. I was very glad to find it again.

The easiest way to change this out is to remove the access panel(like the one you purchased) and the metal brace that supports it to the bottom metal access panel. To do this, REMOVE the screws in between the door and access panel. Step 2: LOOSEN screws that connect the metal braces together. You do not need to remove them completely as the middle brace slides up. You should now have the panel and brace together in your hands. Step 3: Using a flat screw driver pry (and I mean pry!) the retainers out of the catch. At this point breaking the old plastic is a better option than bending the metal! Once removed, your ready to swap out the front cover of the panels and put'er back!! Good Luck!

Leak at the seal

  • Customer: Craig from Southern Pines NC
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers
  • 2 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
Getting the dishwasher out was easy. Getting to the impeller was easy. Getting the impeller off of the motor shaft was the difficult part. I had to use my Dremel tool with lots of cutoff wheels to cut the impeller off of the motor shaft a little piece at a time. It appeared to be rust on the motor shaft that was causing the impeller to not come off. There is not much room for the Dremel so be careful not to nick the pump housing or cut into the motor shaft. Keep the vacuum close by to clean out the plastic impeller shavings. Clean the rust off the shaft with steel wool, fine sandpaper etc. Assembly was easy once everything was cleaned up.
