This part releases the detergent and rinse aid into the dishwasher.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
Remove lower dish shelf and cover the bottom of the washer (Drain). Be assured, something is going to fall in. I removed all the screws around the sides and top. Be careful when removing the 2 top corner screws as the panel fell away from the door. Once the screws are out I was able to close the door and separate it. This was the most difficult part as the nuts are very small and under the dispenser therefore difficult to get at. Also, I couldn't separate the door very far because of the wire harness. Be patient, you will finally get them out. Push out the old dispenser, put the new one in and tighten the nuts. Be sure they are well tightened! If not it will leak and you will have to take everything apart, and you will be very upset..I know.All in all, it wasn't really difficult.

Partselect. Com got my order here within 48 hours. . . They're awesome!! The new heater element also comes with a new electronic control unit that the instructions say must be replaced at the same time. Apparently this unit is a huge upgrade since it greatly increases the drying and water temperatures. Very easy installation for both. The dispenser unit was also redesigned and is supposed to be more efficieint. It too was easy to install. The "cntrl-elec" I mistakenly ordered and did not install and returned to parts select. I misread the scematic. It seems you have to order the entire control panel which include the cntrl-elec board and the eletronic control for the heating element, all just to replace the labeled display buttons. . . Cost, $306. Instead, I just photocopied a diagram of the display from the owner's manual and taped it to top of the door next to the controls. The machine works better than new.
First, I turned the power off at the circuit breaker.Next, removed six screws securing front panel to the dishwasher. Then, disconnected power supply to the dispenser. Followed by unscrewing the four screws that held dispenser in place. Easily removed unit and replaced with new dispenser. Secured in place with screws, then connected power supply. Then, fastened front panel and turned circuit breaker back on. Viola! New dispenser is working like a charm!
This was a relatively simple repair. 1.) Using a torx screwdriver I removed the lower 4 torx screws on each side of front door. The screws are located inside the front door. Be sure to hold the front panel in place while removing all 8 screws The upper screws do not need to be removed. They are for the control panel at the top of the door. 2.) Remove the lower front panel on the door. 3.) Using a nut driver, remove the 6 screws that hold the upper and lower brackets to the detergent dispenser. Note the orientation of the brackets and the cloth cover. There are three screws for each bracket. 4.) Note that there are two different wires connected to the dispenser. One wire (closest to the outer panel) has a line along its length. The other wire does not. This identifies "hot" and "neutral". Remove the two wires. You may need to use a flatblade screwdriver to pry the wires off of the connectors. Do this carefully. 5.) The dispenser can now be removed from the door. 6.) Reverse the above steps to install the new dispenser. Be careful to slowly tighten each of the six screws for the dispenser a little at a time in order to make sure that the dispenser seats correctly into the door. That's about it. Job should take no more than 30 - 45 minutes.
As shown on video, unfortunately the circuit board had also burnt out which I did not know. Due to that fact I called a repairman to diagnose and replace the circuit board.
The replacement of the old with the new was very easy, however after the installation was complete the noise from the new detergent and rinse aid dispenser motor was exactly the same as the old. So at this point I have no idea what is really wrong with the dishwasher. I may have to call in a repair contractor after all. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
removed front panel and put in new part.
