pulled the old gaskets out, put the new ones in. Just like that. No tools, nothing. I would compare it in difficulty to the process of paying for gas at the pump and then filling your car up.

Small leak under door

  • Customer: Ronald from Chardon OH
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 2 of 6 people found this instruction helpful
The main tub gasket just pulled out by hand - no tools needed. Installing new one was just as easy, Just remember the wide part of the gasket sits in the bottom of the groove and cut off the excess with scissors.
Door gasket - not so easy. The six screws near the top of the door do NOT need to be removed, only the two (phillips) mid-way down the side. Remove the bottom panel by pulling down (it sits in a pocket of the top panel). The bottom door gasket just pulls out and insert the new one by hand (can be tight). Re-install bottom panel by sliding up into the top panel pocket, aligning the holes and screw home.
Normally,, you would be done but not in my case. The slow drip was still there. Investigation revealed that under the bottom panel (yes, we took it off again) is a tie-wrap holding wires at the bottom of the door that collects condensed steam and allows it to drip outside of the bottom plastic tray onto the floor. We thought that the tie-wrap was unnessesary and cut it off. Test drive- No more drips!

Machine was leaking from the bottom left side (facing)

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.

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.

  • Customer: Ronald from Chardon OH
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Wrench set
  • 1 of 4 people found this instruction helpful
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!

We read how others did the repair and my husband had no problem changing it.. . I have a daycare and he had it fixed in a few minute after the kids had lunch and had it in before I could get them all laid down for nap. . . he took off the front door, took ooff the pkug in to the dispenser and took it out, then put the new one in, and hooked up the plug in and put the front cover back on, and it works great!! My dishwasher hasn't worked this good in a long time. I am swo glad I fo9und this web site. Sharon-Indiana

Heating Element Seal and Nut

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!
