Pulled the dishwasher out, turned it on the side to gain access to the inlet valve, removed the inlet valve. The hard part was getting the valve fitting that didn't come with the inlet valve. I had to use liqued wrench to loosen the hard water deposits to get it off. Once it was off, putting the new valve on was easy. Also of note, when I tested the old vlalve with an Ohm meeter it read 8 M ohm, not infinity. The new one only measured at about 1k ohm.

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!

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!!

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!
