Simple repair... Great Company, quick shipping (in CA had it the next day). Quality parts, GE OEM!! And to top it off the lowest prices!!

My wheels would not stay on the roller rack which made me dread having to put a dish in the rack.

All I had to do is take out the rack, pop off the old wheels, place the new stud rollers on, then pop on the new wheels. So easy and now my dishes don't get chipped when I pull the rack out and push it back in. I wish I didn't wait so long to order new parts.

The wheels kept falling off the right side of the bottom rack; it was extremely annoying. We basically had to lift the bottom rack to get it in and out of the dishwasher.

I removed the old wheels & studs on the right side of the bottom rack of the dishwasher, and I gleefully THREW THEM ALL OUT! HA HA!

Then I put the nice new rollers on the studs, and then I put them on the rack.

Helpful hints for others beleaguered by this design problem:

1) Be sure to get new studs - that's the part that kept causing the wheels to fall off

2) Put the rollers on the studs before putting them on the rack. (Another user on this site noted that, and it was very helpful).

3) P.S. Very prompt shipping, great service - I will definitely use this company again. And thanks to whoever dropped a cheerful Christmas candy into the box!!

Pull old rack out, slip new one in!
One thing i did was order wheels and studs as i was unaware they lower rack came fully equiped with all wheels,studs, and flip up dish dividers. So if your replacing the rack no need to order the wheels! The diagram made it look as if you only et the wire rack and not all the added pieces.

tormented by the wheels falling off the lower rack in the dishwasher, had to lift it in and out when loading, then it would get hung up and not enter straight. a real pain in the @$%.
i was so happy to find parts select, and see that other people had the same problem. i ordered the new wheels and modified clip. shipping was really fast. took off the older ones and replaced them. when my husband came home and saw i fixed it myself, he was astonished. no more fighting the rack. smooth and better than new. thx parts select!!

soap door latch broken, wouldn't hold soap for later release in middle of cycle like it was supposed to.

  • Customer: James from Naperville IL
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Turned off power to unit, 'cuz it has a solenoid lead to open the soap door.
Removed the phillips head screws that held the door together. The screw are located on the inside edge of the door, there are 10-12 of them.
Spearated the door shells carefully, trying not to disturb the location of the wiring in the middle of the door.

Found the 4 screws that hold the module assembly to the door from the inside, and removed them.
Popped the assembly out, cleaned the gasket-seat area and placed the new one in place.
Carefully tightened the 4 screws. It is easy to over-tighten them, so only turn them until you feel they are snug. Let the gasket do the work.
Attached the two solenoid control wires in the same positions they were in before they were removed from the old assembly.
Re-assembled the door halves, again taking care to not over-tighten the phillips-head screws. One got "spun" and I removed it and re-set it into some epoxy.
Returned power to the dishwasher, and stopped washing dishes by hand.
Note: the latch is now made with a plastic that is more dense, and likely will not fail as soon as the original one did. I think GE learned something about the durability of their component plastics since this was originally built.

The wheels on the bottom rack kept coming off and I was beginning to hate my dishwasher. Also, the top rack had rusted through in areas.

Easilly took the rollers off and slipped on the new ones. Changed out the top rack. Now the dishwasher is back to new! Don't know why I put this off.

Heating element rusted and cracked

The hardest part for me was pulling the dishwasher out from under the countertop. Once it is out all you have to do is disconnect the power (or power off the fuse going to the dishwasher) then look underneath the dishwasher and you will see where the two ends of the heating element come through. Disconnect the wires connected to the ends by simply sliding off the connector. Then remove the plastic "nuts" that screw onto the ends of the heating element by turning them counterclockwise counterclockwise. Once the nuts are removed you can reach inside the dishwasher and remove the old heating element and replace it with the new one. Then simply replace the plastic nuts and reconnect the wires and you are good to go.

White latch on soap dispenser broken- would not latch

  • Customer: Alan from Marshall VA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 27 of 30 people found this instruction helpful
1. Remove the outside panel on the door by removing 10 phillips screws on inside of door. Outside panel will drop loose - do not let it drop.
2. There are 3 electrical plugs that will have to be removed. The first is a 2" long quick connect in the upper middle of the door panel - it will pull straight out. Remember where it makes its connection. Now the exterior door panel will drop down to the floor, pivoting on two axle screws at the bottom. The interior panel can be left vertical for ease of access.
3. The other two electrical connections are on the left side of the old dispenser and can be removed with a simple pull to the left.
4. Remove the six (6) phillips screws from the panel that hold the dispenser in position. Two retainers will also drop off, which hold the dispenser top and bottom.
5. Angle the dispenser and work toward the inside of the dishwasher, turning as necessary to remove from the opening.
6. Reverse the process for installation. Remember to reconnect all three electrical connections.

  • 28 of 36 people found this instruction helpful
Very supprised and the quick delivery. Ordered it the afternoon and received the very next day.

Disconnect the power and the water supply. The drain line was plenty long enough. Pulled the dishwasher out of the cabinet and turned on its side. Lousened the two hose clamps holding the pump in place. Removed the two screws holding the pump to the housing and the electrcal connections to the old pump. Cleaned the internal parts of the hose connections for the placement of the new pupmp and installed. Connected the pump to the housing of the dishwasher and fastened the electrical connections to the body of athe new pump. Placed the dishwasher into the cabinet and connected the main power and connected the water supply. Turned on the power and ran thru a cycle. LIKE NEW.

Thank you for your help. Fred

Dishwasher pump leaked all the time

  • Customer: Rob from Newell IA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set, Wrench(Adjustable)
  • 14 of 18 people found this instruction helpful
I received my dishwasher as a hand me down, my Aunt never liked the way it cleaned. After it sitting for about 2 years i installed it in my house and found that it leaked all the time from where motor shaft went into the pump housing. After disassembling everything and scouring parts sites online, I found the parts, ordered them. 3 days later i had the parts, and the next day I had a fully functioning leak free dishwasher.

Soap dispenser latch broke - never worked right

  • Customer: Steve from Lincoln CA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers
  • 12 of 13 people found this instruction helpful
This was a piece of cake. The original soap dispenser never worked right and always left unused soap. The new part was easy to install and works great. Only needed a 1/4" nut driver and philips screw driver to pull the outside panel and replace the module rinse and cap assy. Easy!

After power outage dishwasher would not start

  • Customer: Steven from Palmyra PA
  • Difficulty: Easy

The Module is easily replaced by removing the screws that hold the front and back of the door together. I figured the problem would be either the module or the keypad. The problem actually tuned out to be the keypad on the top of the door. The key pad did not have enough room under the counter to vent heat and humidity, so I lowered the dishwasher to allow 1/2 inch of clearance under the counter.

plastic hinge arm link broke causing door to flop open

First I had to unscrew screws under the counter then pulled built in dishwasher out from under the counter, attached hing arm link to right side bracket on door, and the other end I attatched to a spring at the back of the unit. Thats it! and pushed the dishwasher back into place. All back to normal....by the way Im a 67 yr old great grandmother...

Water leak, small puddle to front left of dishwasher

  • Customer: Greg from Burlington VT
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Socket set
  • 12 of 19 people found this instruction helpful
You'll need to remove the front toe kick and (if installed, the GE Profile baffling for additional silencing action).

You will need to disconnect the right wire connection to access the right screw (and may need to use a flat head screwdriver). You can then remove the 2 screws that hold the Valve Water Inlet on.

You will then need to loosen and the hose clamp that attaches the water line to the Valve Water Inlet. You may need to force it undone since the rubber connection is pretty secure around the water tube inlet.

Disconnect the plastic wire housing from the Valve Water Inlet and you should now have the Valve Water Inlet disconnected.

Reverse the order and reconnect everything and you should be good to go!

Double-check for any leaks prior to pushing everything back in :)
