I measured the length of the gasket, using the old one to measure the length. Cut it to that length and installed it. VERY SIMPLE TO DO! But it didn't stop my leak--turns out there was a small leak in the bottom of the tub that was easily fixed with some silicone. The dishwasher's like new now!

I turned the power off at the circuit breaker. I then took the access panel off the dishwasher at the bottom. I pulled the wire off the connector. I used a plied to remove the broken washer and replaced with new part. I put everything back in reverse order and ran the dishwasher. I than checked for leaks over two days while the machine was running and everything was fine. Thank you Parts Select for saving me $500!

The door springs were broken and the dorr was very heavy to open and close.

I removed the two screws and then moved the dishwasher out a little bit (about 6 inches). I pushed the dishwasher toward one side to make room for me to change the spring with my hand and repeated the same procedure for the other side. After the spring change, I turned an old dishwasher to a new one.

Intake valve was leaking

  • Customer: Lisa from Mastic Beach NY
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Wrench set

removed two screws the disconnected the two hoses (after shutting the water off of course). It was easy.
Unfortunatley the water warped the wood under the vinyl flooring which is new and I really love. I would suggest that a rubber or some type of water proof material be placed under the dishwasher so that if it leaks it won't get at the subflooring. If this had been the case I would have noticed the leak right away.

The door springs were shot.

Removed the bottom panel, and I had to disconnect the water supply, which did NOT use flexible tubing (much to my disappointment), removed the screws holding the diswasher in the cabinet. Slid it out, took the old springs off, put the new ones on.

It was pretty straightforward -- no big deal.

My Dishwasher was leaking @ the valve on incoming line.

After i identified where it was leaking i cut the vave off under sink so i could remove part. All it had was 2 screws holding it to the frame and of course the copper line. I then went online to parts select and within 2 days my part arrived,i was planning on being down for at least a week but not with part select!! Thank you all for the great service!

Dishwasher leaks

  • Customer: Gardner from Old Saybrook CT
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Socket set

First point of leakage was the door. Turns out that a gasket at the bottom of the door functions as a wave trap. As the bottom sprayer spins it sprays against the door and creates a small wave of water this gasket was starting to disintegrate, it was letting water surge over the small tray at the doors bottom. Easy to replace just pull down and remove press fit on inside door bottom. Only when this was replaced did I find the real leak but not until I guessed at the tub seal as the leak. Very hard to see where the water really comes from! Turns out it was not the tub seal but a clip that holds the heater element got smashed down from a dropped dish rack at some earlier time and this caused the heat to increase at the clip and eventually heat the clip to extent it melted the tub directly under it. JB Weld to the rescue and we have a waterproof tub again. Well almost! The tub gasket resisted my best efforts to seat correctly and thus required a new tub gasket, still hard to seat but after 2-3 attempts we have a winner. Total cost about 50 bucks vs. 6-700 for a new unit. Wife is happy!!

First I pulled out the old gasket and replaced with the new one. The new one is too long on purpose but only had to be trimmed a little for a perfect fit. Very easy and now no leaks.

First I pulled out the old gasket, used this to measure for the new gasket, cut to right length, pushed new gasket into the track and washed a load of dishes. No leaks! This took about 2 minutes to complete.

I just popped on a new Arm. So easy. The amazing thing was how fast I had the part and how easy it was to find on Partselect.com. I ordered the part Monday and had it Tuesday. I was stunned and the tenant was impressed.
