soap dish door does not always pop open

  • Customer: John from Dubuque IA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 7 of 19 people found this instruction helpful
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

I removed the three screws holding the motor on the housing. Then I took the two hoses off and from inside the washer I unscrewed the ring at the base of the wand that holds the housing in place and removed it. I then replaced the impeller and seals and reversed the process to put it back together. Cost me 26.00 for parts and shipping. I couldnt imagine what anyone else would have charged. I will do business with PartsSelect again in the future.

The old gasket around the door pulled out easily but was pretty nasty. While cleaning the channel out, kept finding more gunk that had built up. I decided to go ahead and take off the Inner Door. Used Torx driver to take off the screws. Found a tremendous amount of gunk built up. Was well worth taking the extra time to clean it all out. Replaced the Inner Door and put new gasket in channel. No more leaking!

lower rack started to rust through coating

  • Customer: Carol from St Johnsbury VT
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

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!

Water leaking from pump seal.

  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set, Wrench set, Wrench(Adjustable)

After getting the pump and motor off of the dishwasher, I used a screwdriver and small hammer to break the impeller off of the motor shaft. The shaft was corroded and pitted real bad but this doesn't matter because the shaft of the impeller actually goes through the seal. I removed the old seal and replaced it, slipped the new impeller back on the motor shaft and put the pump and motor back on the dishwasher. Our local repair man told us it couldn't be repaired and we needed a new dishwasher. I had the parts from Part Select in 2 days. The parts were less than $35 dollars and repair very simple. The person on your comment section on how to fix it that said to break the old impeller off of the shaft made the job very simple.

I poked the old gasket with a fork tine so I could get a grip on the old gasket as I didn't have pliars, pulled it out in less than 4 seconds, folded the new gasket in half and started center top of the slot the old gasket was in and pushed the new gasket in on each side from the top to the bottom. Very easy. I'd say it took me longer to open the package with my teeth than in doing all of the above.

First, I checked the ripped box for damage to the dishrack. Fortunately, there was none. Then I looked for the instruction booklet. Unfortunately, there was none. And the parts bag was ripped and I did not know what was supposed to be in it. So, I rechecked the photo of the dishrack on the website and found that either parts were missing or the dishrack was different than illistrated. After a few moments of thought, I realized the latter was the case. I then figured I would have to use some deep thought to do the installation since neither the missing instruction booklet nor the unzoomable photo would help. So, I pulled out the tall thin thingamabob from the old dishrack and put it in the new one though it did not secure as tightly. Then I put the wheel units on just like the old one. What I could not immediately figure out was where the collapsible rack row was mounted. I eventually realized that the rod went into a hole in the wheel units and the latch mounted above one unit. I still have no idea where the two other tan clips go. Though the dishrack is different and thus requires different science to fill it, it appears to do the job.

Thanks for asking.

By the way, it was not blue.

Door seal leaked and wash arm bearing broken

  • Customer: Glen from Harrison ME
  • Difficulty: Really easy

The door seal was easy. In less than 15 minutes I peeled the old one off and installed the new one. Also the new seal arrived in 2 days. In replacing the seal I noticed a screw laying in the bottom of the dishwasher. As I removed the lower washing arm which was real easy I noticed that the plastic bearing for the lower arm was no good. Late Thursday evening I went on line and ordered the bearing, and to my surprise it was delivered to my house on Saturday. In 15 minutes I had the bearing installed and we were back in business. I'm just amazed at how easy your web site is to use, and the promptness of the parts delivery. You guys are great.
