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.

  • Difficulty: Really easy

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!

My Son used needle nose pliers to remover the old gasket, then starting on the lower right side, inserted the new gasket and used the rounded end of handle of a wooden spoon and pressed the gaste in place by running the handle up and around the top then down the left side. Used sissors to cut the new gasket to length. Door fit very tight. Ran a normal wash cycle and no leaks.

Removed kick plate at lower front of unit. At lower left is water inlet valve. Measured voltage across inlet valve solenoid at start of cycle. Was getting 120V to solenoid, but solenoid not opening valve thus no water going into dishwasher. Ordered replacement inlet valve. To remove inlet valve, disconnect two wires from valve assembly, disconnect water supply tube and remove two screws from mounting bracket. Now you can remove water hose that goes to dishwasher. Reverse order for install of new valve assy.

repair soap dispenser

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

Took off all the screws, replaced the dispenser-no problem. However, I couldn't get the top to stay in place long enough to get the screws back in. My boyfriend came over and couldn't get it together without using a longer screw in the top area. Now it works great.
The only other problem was my bank and my VISA-they both called me stating my account was being used out of the country. They issued a fraud alert at first, but I called them and told them everything was fine.

Thanks for the help

I removed the screws from the inside of the dishwasher door to allow access to the inside of the door. Once the exterior of the door is removed the detergent dispenser is easily removed by disconnecting 6 screws and unplugging two wires from the unit. The new unit slips in and is easily reconnected. Getting the exterior of the door reinstalled is a bit challenging, but once you figure out that the exterior needs to slide up to allow the catches on the door to grab, reinstallation is easy. A second pair of hands makes this easier.

The part fits exactly with no modifications necessary.

I did not come with directions, but I had gotten them from the Parts Select stories from others. Removed 2 screws from inside door, dropped the front panel, removed the 6 screws holding the dispenser, unplugged the contacts, removed the dispenser and then reversed the process.
