The machine was not used for three years after discovering a leak. It appeared to be coming from the drain pump. I Decided to reevaluate the leak for repair, with a little prodding from my wife, I found the leak coming from the bottom of the door. I Found the worn seal and I ordered a new part. I used needle-nose pliers to remove the old seal, pushed the new seal in with my fingers, checked for leaks, none found. Machine is back in business. My wife was happy.

Within 5min of running the dishwasher it kept leaking out of one side at the bottom of the door. I took out all the screws all to find out there was no need to do so. Although having it open I was able to find that the bottom door gasket looked dry rotted and was falling apart... after a little research online I was able to find that this is a common issue and I ordered the new part. The part arrived next day... all I had to do was slide it in where the old one was. It did the trick!!! No more leaks!

After checking various forums and advice, the suggested repair was a new water inlet valve. It was easy to change but I wasted $30 as it did not cure the problem. Dishwasher is only 2 years old and is cheaper to replace then have someone come and look at it. So it did not fix the problem, but I recommend Parts Select, the price was fair and part arrived very quickly.

Never worked on a dishwasher before but quickly learned that on this particular one, it's only this thin little brass nut that tightens down the element from the underside of the washer. If not tight enough, water drips right down onto the electrical connections. In this case water began to drip and the heat from the electrical current began melting a clear rubber shield thing. Luckily I was home during the cycle and figured out the problem. Great website that seems to have all necessary parts for my washer. Quick shipment!

Removed front panel and eased out screws holding the dishwasher in place. Lowered the door and removed old springs. Replaced the springs and sit the unit back in place. When they are this old it is best to replace both springs. Rated easy...,

Couldn't have asked for an easier fix, directions were superb, ship time - unbelievably fast and above all, I saved almost two hundred dollars by not having a certified repair person come out to my home. Thank you Partselect!

After watching a wash cycle with the front cover off, I noticed water coming out from the bottom of the pan, under the Gasket. Pulled the gasket down out of the slit and reinstalled the new one exactly as the old one came off, with the wiper angled the correct direction.

dishwasher was leaking at heating element connections

Both heating element brass nuts had a split in them. They had fallen off the heating element and were hanging on the electrical wires. I removed the wires from the heating element and removed the brass nuts from the wires. I then screwed the new nuts on the heating element and reattached the wires. problem solved. I want to thank you for having the parts I needed as Sears had discontinued them for this Kenmore appliance.

Dishwasher ran through cycle but no water ever entered the washer.

Turned off water & pulled plug from electrical outlet. Two screws removed the lower cover, two more screws hidden behind the opened door allowed the removal of the bottom panel. Laid a towel under the valve on the lower left to catch water & disconnected the inlet fitting with a 1/2" wrench. Remove the two screws holding water inlet valve next. With valve loose, remove electrical connector and drain hose (pliers). Valve has an elbow fitting that will need to be removed and installed on new valve - use Teflon tape or paste for a leak-free assembly. Reattach the drain hose & electrical connector before installing the valve using the two screws. Once in place, re-attach the inlet fitting (no Teflon required on tapered seats) and make sure everything is tight. Test washer through one cycle for water flow and no leaks. If all is good, remove towel and tools, then re-install the two lower panels. Clean up and you are done!
