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.)

Dishwasher working with no water coming in

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!

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.

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.

Water leaking from pump seal.

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.

Water leak from the pump housing.

  • Difficulty: Easy

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!

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!

soap dish door does not always pop open

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

Door seal leaked and wash arm bearing broken

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.

Upper dishrack needed replaced

I removed the upper dishrack easily by removing the end clips and sliding the tray out. Removal of the revolving sprayer was easy as it just clipped on to the bottom of the rack. The rack was not the rack that was ordered and I was informed that this was the correct rack for the dishwasher even though the description and picture was different that what I received. There were no instructions with the rack to explain how to attach the "flaps" that can go over lightweight dishes to keep them from flipping. Every way I tried to attach the flaps did not work. When I was able to attach one it would pop off if I raised the flap to place a dish underneath it. I finally gave up on the flaps and reinserted the rack onto the rails and put the end clips back in place. The rack works fine other than it is not the one that was described and was not the rack that I wanted.
