Dishwasher was leaking

I turned the power off at the circuit breaker. I then took the access panel off the dishwasher at the bottom. I pulled the wire off the connector. I used a plied to remove the broken washer and replaced with new part. I put everything back in reverse order and ran the dishwasher. I than checked for leaks over two days while the machine was running and everything was fine. Thank you Parts Select for saving me $500!

First I pulled out the old gasket and replaced with the new one. The new one is too long on purpose but only had to be trimmed a little for a perfect fit. Very easy and now no leaks.

After i identified where it was leaking i cut the vave off under sink so i could remove part. All it had was 2 screws holding it to the frame and of course the copper line. I then went online to parts select and within 2 days my part arrived,i was planning on being down for at least a week but not with part select!! Thank you all for the great service!

Removed the bottom panel, and I had to disconnect the water supply, which did NOT use flexible tubing (much to my disappointment), removed the screws holding the diswasher in the cabinet. Slid it out, took the old springs off, put the new ones on.

It was pretty straightforward -- no big deal.

The door springs were broken and the dorr was very heavy to open and close.

I removed the two screws and then moved the dishwasher out a little bit (about 6 inches). I pushed the dishwasher toward one side to make room for me to change the spring with my hand and repeated the same procedure for the other side. After the spring change, I turned an old dishwasher to a new one.

Intake valve was leaking

  • Customer: Lisa from Mastic Beach NY
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

removed two screws the disconnected the two hoses (after shutting the water off of course). It was easy.
Unfortunatley the water warped the wood under the vinyl flooring which is new and I really love. I would suggest that a rubber or some type of water proof material be placed under the dishwasher so that if it leaks it won't get at the subflooring. If this had been the case I would have noticed the leak right away.

Dishwasher was leaking caused by a cracked brass nut attaching to the heating element.

  • Customer: zachary from Mayfield Heights OH
  • Difficulty: Really easy

  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 2 of 3 people found this instruction helpful
First I removed the two screws that hold the dishwasher in place, I pulled out the dishwasher and on the bottom right located the leak. The two brass nuts that hold the heating element in place. The wires had been rusted to the element so I cut the wires (and later spliced them back together) and unscrewed the brass nuts. I ordered the part after finding them very easily on partselect.com and 2 days later screwed them back on to the dishwasher. Spliced the wires back together and put the dishwasher back in place.

Easy Fix.
