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!

Removed 2 screws from the Access Panel and 2 screws from the Toe Plate using a Phillips head screwdriver. The broken spring was removed and replaced using the opposite spring as a guide as to the position of the spring. The opposite side (the unabroken one) was replaced. The panels were screwed back into place. End of repair.

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.

Door spring was broken

  • 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

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!

There were no wheels on the bottom rack of our dishwasher.

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.

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.
