I WENT ON LINE AND FOUND THE PARTSELECT WEBSITE AND WAS ABLE TO IDENTIFY THE DEFECTIVE PARTS USING THE SCHEMATIC DRAWINGS. I ORDERED THE PARTS AND IN ABOUT AN HOUR I HAD REASSEMBLED THE DISHWASHER AND HAD IT RUNNING AGAIN MUCH TO THE JOY OF MY WIFE AND CHILDREN. (NO MORE WASHING DISHES BY HAND!). i ALSO PURCHASED THE TOUCH-UP PAINT AND TINE TIPS AND NOW THE WASHER LOOKS AND RUNS LIKE IT DID WHEN I PURCHASED IT.

door seal leak

  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Removed seal from door with flat head screwdriver, replaced with new seal. Actually took longer to get out of the box rather than to fix!

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!

Had to be careful positioning the spring without breaking the hinge pin. Requires a certain amount of patience.

the motor would not run.

i determined that the impeller was not free. ordered and installed an impeller kit which included a new bushing, which was the culprit. it was a fairly simple fix, needing only to remove the pump housing from the back of the motor. access to the impeller was by removing the screw-in, x shaped connection on the back side of the impeller housing. runs like new again. the fix was far less expensive than a new washer.

The bracket that holds the rack up had broken. I ordered a new part and snapped it in place. Not much to explain.

Dishwasher working with no water coming in

  • Customer: Judy from Macomb MI
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Socket set, Wrench set, Wrench(Adjustable)

Turned off water and electrical. Removed kickplate at bottom of dishwasher. Unhooked water line, electrical plug and unscrewed valve from frame, noting proper position of valve for new install. The only delay we had was removing the old water line fitting from old valve. We needed the old fitting for the new valve. We solved the problem by soaking valve in boiling hot water to help loosen the connection. Install of new valve was reverse of the removal process. My son did the work and saved me approximately $200 for a service call. I also want to say that ordering the part from your company was less expensive than if I had ordered it locally and gone to pick it up! Your website is extremely helpful, user friendly, and I am recommending it to all my friends when they need to repair an appliance. Thank you!

Pump impeller went crooked, apparently both from wear and moving the unit. Would not then stay in place.

  • Customer: Guy from Santa Fe NM
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours

Disconnected hoses (2) from pump housing. Disconnected pump housing from motor (3 allen screws, not too acessible). Unscrew spray arm from pump housing (this is done by hand; no tools as the "nut" is about 3" diameter and made of plastic) Open up the pump casing and replace impeller and the bearings on each side. The thing that takes some time is to mop the water that comes off at almost each step. There is probably an intelligent way to drain everything first. I did not order the large seal (kind of a large rubber donut, larger than a donut) between the arm and the pump and I shoiuld have as it was difficult to keep the old one from not leaking: Since by hand you cannot tighten the large nut very hard and tools could damage or break it. Applying upward pressure on the pump while tightening did it. (The pump and motor are all mounted on flexible mounts, like the heavy hoses connecting to the pump housing, so that there are no vibration.)

I ordered a dishwasher soap dispenser "lid assembly". When it arrived, it was not an assembly at all but only a lid. I had to reorder a pin and spring, When i finally had every thing, it was an easy repair.

Leak at the seal

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.

soap dish door does not always pop open

  • Customer: John from Dubuque IA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

the plastic pin that retains the spring has a head on one end that hits a plastic stop on the door to keep it from coming out. I used a small grinder and made a flat spot on the head diameter to make it easy to slide out. This is easier than trying to pry the door off the pin at the two retaing snaps. I was conderned these pin retainer clips were brittle and would break off.
Once the pin is slid out, it is a matter to hold the new spring holes in line with the pin. rotate pin so flat side you ground is turned up, so pin will not move out that way. Tiij about an hour

lower rack started to rust through coating

  • Customer: Carol from St Johnsbury VT
  • Difficulty: Easy

Since there were no printed instructions, we looked at the photo schematic.
Reassembly using the photo was easy by putting the old rack alongside the new one and adjusting the new rack spacing to match the old one.
We also had new wheels which snapped on.
We were delighted to repair and replace this good, older dishwasher rather than purchase a new one!
