dishwasher leaked by bottom of door

  • Customer: Mark from Raleigh NC
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Removed door covering. Removed door (it was nice to have a helper for this as the hinges spring closed as the screws are removed). Flipped door over, leaving the wires attached. Removed the bottom seal, and put new one in. This looked like it would slide out by a side, but it actually pulls straight down. It is notched, so there isn't a way to put new one in the wrong way. Attached door (again helper a bonus). Attached door cover.

Purchased new home, dishwasher leaked water from bottom of front door

  • Customer: Logan from Augusta KY
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

After reading the consumer reviews (which is a great tool by the way), I learned the bottom door gasket came out by pulling inwards toward the center of the dishwasher, NOT to the left or right. I finally found the slot in the door and inserted the new gasket in less than 5 minutes. The reason why I listed a longer repair time is because I started the machine to check for leaks. Unfortunately, I still had a minor leak and I believe it is due to the dishwasher being unlevel. I changed from "Normal Wash" to "EcoWash" and no leaks. Still need to level it. Since the house had been vacant for a long period of time, I think the original gasket may have dry-rotted. Overall, smooth process and great opportunity to learn a little about the simplicity of dishwashers. While your there, you may want to remove the bottom spray arm and clean the debris filters. Pretty disgusting...

Left-side door spring snapped

  • Customer: Craig from Pepperell MA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers

The left-side dishwasher door spring snapped. The door was then noticeably heavy to open and close. To investigate the problem, I shut off the circuit breaker and the water feed. I removed the two screws that secure the top of the dishwasher to the counter, so I could pull out the unit and see the door springs. (TIP: remove the bottom metal panel as well to see if you have a flexible or rigid pipe for hot water. If you have a rigid pipe like I do you might want to be careful pulling the unit forward.) With the unit pulled forward I could see the snapped spring; it had actually shot up and was wedged between the unit and the cabinet. To to the repair, I attached the new spring to the door first. Then I closed the door so the spring was slack and used pliers to attach it to the bottom of the unit. (To access the bottom of the unit, you need to remove the metal panel at the bottom, as mentioned above.) I used the other spring as a comparison as to where to attach.

first of all make sure the lower screw is intact. I did not know it was missing until i tried to attatch the new spray arm. so of course i could not find it and had to order a new one for 15 bucks.ugh After replacing the screw that goes between the filter and the arm it was very easy to snap the arm in place no tools needed. my husband is amazed at how i order parts and replace instead of calling for help. i love to see his face when i fix things around the house.lol

Broken tub rack guide wheels

This is a case of weak OEM design. Substantial (cup) weight placed on the rack will ultimately cause these wheels to break under load stress. My fix went slightly beyond the design by installing 8 cents worth of washers between the wheel and the screw head. That way any slack was reduced so that the wheels were less stressed at an angle. The rack now sits square and the wheels more true than design. I picked up some lock washers at local hardware store and flattened them out to fit smooth. The parts supplied by PartSelect were perfect fits to OEM. This is a truly easy repair. If your top rack keeps falling off the guides due to broken tub wheels this will take care of the problem. I will add that the parts that you can obtain through PartSelect are adequate without improvising. I just went for a more robust fix to the original design with additional washers. Hope this is helpful.

I removed the screws around the perimeter of the door. This allowed me to easily unscrew the small phillips screws that attached the old dispenser from inside the door. I popped in the new one and screwed everything back together. It now works like new.

Latch catch worn out, wouldn't latch closed

Open dishwasher door. Using phillips screwdriver, remove the lower two screws, this allows the outside pannel to come off and expose the Dispenser's back side. Remove the two electric wires remembering where they go, ie: white inside red outside. Remove the six screws holding Dispenser in place. Push Dispenser through to inside. Put new Dispenser in and reverse proceedure. This was actually easier than I expected. A novice can handle this repair. Good luck. Oh, when putting Dispenser screws back in, start them all first before tightening.

Remove bottom door gasket and install new gasket in reverse order, take out door gasket and install new gasket into groove, start at one end and work to other end then cut to fit. No leaks until a week later, door may not have been closed firmly.

When I ordered the part, I kept the burned part with me at the computer so I would be sure to get the correct part. When I found it, I ordered the part and everything went well after I received it. It was very easy to install.

The detergent cap was worn and wouldn't latch

  • Customer: Drew from Nibley UT
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

I ordered the detergent dispenser and was told it would take about 5 days to get it. I received it in 2 days. I first flipped the breaker switch to the dishwasher to avoid pulling it out to pull the plug. Opening the door to access the inside and removed the 2 lower screws on the side. This let the front panel be slid down and removed. I removed the 2 wires to the dispenser module. A flat-head screwdriver helped to loosen them. I then removed the 6 screws to remove the module. I reversed the process to install the new one.

Leaky dishwasher door

We had a leak around the bottom of the dishwasher door. After finding this site, I identified the part that I needed, the bottom gasket. I was ready to take all the screws out of the door to pull out the old gasket until I read the reviews and repair experiences here. Just have to grasp the old gasket with pliers to pull it out, straight down. I cleaned out the slot with a thin putty knife, just to make sure it didn't have any gunk left in it. Then simply slide the new gasket back in place. The only "trick" is to be careful lining up the slot on the right side, to make sure it seats all the way down. Like someone else already mentioned, there is no "click" to indicate it is all the way in, just a feeling of snugness. Closed it up and made a test run of the dishwasher, and, Voila! No more leak. A hell of a lot cheaper and faster than waiting for a repairman. Oh, I almost forgot to mention, I received my part within 24 hrs of ordering it too!
