I had to replace the door gasket but it would not go in very easy..So I put the gasket in a sink of warm water so it would be more pliable. Then it went on fairly easy.

Small Constant Drip (Leak)

  • 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!

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!

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.

used the pliers to grip the end of the spring, extended it and removed it from the door and frame. The install then followed. It takes longer to remove the front panel than to do the repair.

I ordered a new door gasket and door spring. I unscrewed the two screws that hold the dishwasher in place and pulled it out. I pulled the old broken spring off with pliers and installed the new one ,,,very easy. I then took the new door gasket and soaked it in hot water in the sink for 15 min. That made it very soft and pliable to work with. I used pliers to pull the old gasket out then cleaned the area around the old gasket where crud had built up. I pushed in the new gasket working from top to bottom one side at a time. Turned it on an ran through a cycle and it works perfect now ,,,no leaks.
