Small Constant Drip (Leak)

  • Customer: Richard from Upperco MD
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Wrench(Adjustable)
  • 1 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
I pulled out the dishwasher removed the two heating element insulated wires and removed both threaded brass nuts and replaced them both. Problem solved. Luckily I have a local parts and repair store with a repairman that knows every part of every appliance ever made (no kidding, I have yet to stump him with a part or question). He did not have the parts, told me to go to partselect.com order two nuts, replace them both at the same time, and fix it myself because its an easy repair and not worth paying hundreds of dollars, if you can use a wrench. He was right, and partselect.com had the right parts, at the right price, easy to find and order, and I can impress the wife with my repair skills. Thanks again!

My dishwasher started leaking at the beginning of the summer. We didn't know what to do, but didn't want to call an appliance repairman. Towards fall, a friend came over and pulled it out and found the heating element brass nut which was broken. We put it back in and washed dishes the old-fashioned way for another 3 months after that. I asked at my local hardware store for the part, and thought about trying one of those big-box do-it-yourself stores but never got around to it. Finally after getting sick and tired of doing all the dishes in the house by hand, I found your site, and the part I needed and ordered two (just-in-case). A few days later, we got the part, I pulled the dishwasher out again, screwed on the new nut by hand and put it back into place. We're in business!

The parts arrived 20 hours after ordering -great service & the parts were just like like the removed parts only new. The old door gasket was pulled from its groove & and the new gasket was installed witout using tools. No more leaking water.The door spring installation wesa bit more difficult. The front bottom was removed with a nut drive, the broken springs were fished out, new springs were pull onto the arms and the cover put back in place. Not a bad job for a crippled, one-eyed 82 year old man.

  • Customer: Juergen from Shelbyville IN
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set
  • 0 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
I removed the front panel below the door. There are 4 Hex screws, two at the top (accessible with the door open) and two at the bottom. After removing the screws, the panel came off, and I could reach inside to replace the springs. I found it easier to use a socket wrench than a screw driver.
Easily done. Anybody can do it. It took longer to clean up the panel than to do the actual repair.

Heating Element Seal and Nut

  • Customer: Bryan from Charlotte NC
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins

  • 0 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
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!
