Replaced control panel to change color / fix leak

The tub seal was worn and leaking, this took 5 minutes to replace. I also changed the color of the dishwasher from almond to black by painting the metal panels and replacing the control panel and knob with black ones. Looks like new!

The soap dispenser door would not open

I used a torx driver to remove the seven screws holding the inside door panel in place. Flipping it over exposed the dispenser mechanism. There were two hex nut screws holding the whole assembly in place and two wires attached to the wax motor. As an afterthought I had ordered the sealing grommet for the latch, and as it turned out, the main problem with the sticking latch was that the grommet had worn out and allowed the hard soapy water to leak into the slider assembly and build up a hard crusty residue that had helped to ware out the old wax motor. After completely disassembling all of the parts, I scrubbed the residue out of the housing, replaced the slider, latch, spring, and grommet. Next I snapped the new wax motor into place and connected the two wires. The whole thing went back in place and the two hex screws went back to hold it all together. Finally, the seven torx screws went back to put the door back together. The whole repair went without a hitch.

Leaking at the bottom of door

Replaced gromet around latch. But this wasn't the only problem, still leaked. Replaced foam seal at bottom of door. Having read that the new foam wasn't thick enough, I put mine on top of the old. But still leaked past the foam, due to creases. Foam also pulled away from one end, presumably from heat shrinkage. I'm still trying things to get this to seal.

Dishwasher was leaking

I removed the inside cover of the door (6 to 8 screws), disconnected the wiring and wrote down where they needed to plug back into. Slipped the new dispenser door latch grommet over the latch, re-connected the wires, laid the door's inside cover back into place and replaced the screws. No leaks since. I have to say that without the help on partselect.com I would have wasted time and money in replacing the door's gasket. I'll definately check back here when any problem arises.

Leaking door

After reading repair stories on this website, I decided to order the grommet as well as the seal for my dishwasher door. The seal was easy, just pull the old one out and push the new one in. Make sure the ends were even and that was done. Next came the grommet. 7 screws and I had the plastic off of the door. Then you just flip the plastic panel over and be careful of the wires.(I didn't remove them) Remove two more screws and the latch came out. Just tug the old grommet off and push the new one into place. Line it back up and replace the bolts. Flip the plastic back over and put the other 7 screws back in and you are ready to clean again. While I was in there I took a little extra time to clean some of the buildup out of the sealing surfaces. No more leaks!

Soap dispenser door wouldn't open

I didn't know exactly what was wrong, so I ordered 5 differnt parts. I probably only needed the wax motor, but I thought I might as well change some of the other parts while I had the door lining opened, which was easy with a socket set to remove the Torx screws. The hardest part was getting the old detergent cup lid off. Replacing the motor took 30 seconds! I didn't replace the latch after all, because it looked fine. The parts costs $38. Your web site is great and reading other's comments gave me the confidence to do my own job. Thank you so much!

Leaky dishwasher door

In front of the dishwasher, my wife and I noticed pooling water when the cycle was running. I was fearing the worst, that the tub was leaking from underneath, or that the supply system was leaking and I was going to have to take the whole sucker out. Not so.

I saw that the door gasket was very hard and corroded from our local hard water. I got to this site and saw that others replaced the dispenser door latch grommet, too, and four bucks was a reasonable add-on to make sure the whole thing was dry later.

The door gasket itself was about a five minute repair. No real tools required, except that a blunt pushing tool is helpful. The only trick was making sure that both sides were relatively equal on the bottom.

The dispenser door latch thingy was a bit more complicated. The driver set I was using fortunately had a Torx bit that fit the plastic door panel screws. I then tried dissembling the door solenoid/release mechanism, but I should have just undone the nuts and taken the whole thing off without taking the small pieces apart. Anyway, I replaced the grommet easily and then got all the small stuff put back together OK.

This was an easy repair without pictures or instructions.

Noticed water leaking from bottom of door.

Assumed that the door gasket needed replacing so I went to Partselect.com. Ordereed the gasket and was about to check out when I noticed the comments from others. Decided to look and was glad I did! Almost everyone said that the gasket on the soap dipenser latch on their door gasket repair was bad also so I ordered the latch gasket too. Parts arrived in only two days. I was amazed.
I started by turning the power off at the panel box, then removing the door gasket and cleaning the gasket groove. Then it was a simple matter of pushing the gasket into place, avoiding stretching or compressing it. Removing the gasket and putting in the new one was only about 3 minutes work - however cleaning the groove took somewhat longer. Then unscrewed the 7 torex screws on the interior door plastic panel. Carefully work the panel free, study the solenoid to see how it pops out and it attached, remove the solenoid and the panel is free of the door.
Examine the interior workings of the soap dispenser to see how it all fits. The remove the two hex head screws with a nut driver and carefully remove the assembly. Notice how the latch gasket fits with its boot in the notch on the latch base. The old boot was completely torn from the gasket base on mine. I cleaned accumulation of soad and crud from the mechanism and from the interior side of the door panel. Put it all back together in reverse order. The cleaning took longer thna the actual repairs.
Thank goodness for the comments - saved me a ton of aggravation!!! Partselect.com rules!

Door latch leaked, door gasket previously replaced

Access to the soap dispenser is easy just screws. One of the two hex head screws that hold the mechanism assembly is buried by a lever and required a with a special offset wrench, I used bent needle nosed pliers to loosen and remove the screw quarter turn at a time. The blocking lever was a snap-in and maybe could have been removed with high force, not generally recommended for 14 year old plastic parts. In hindsight I would use a digital camera to record the mechanism, due to a absence of any detail cartoons of the assembly. The lever arm load spring required tweezers to remove and re-install.

Had a water leak from the door

First leak occured about two years ago. Changed gasket and grommet. All was fine until a few days ago when it started leaking again. I cleaned around the gasket and reseated the gasket on the lower right side where the water was coming from and it stopped. Ordered a new gasket and grommet figuring it was only a matter of time until it started leaking again. Changed the gasket and grommet. Was careful to put in new gasket exactly like old one. Tested and found large leak during wash cycle. Opened and reseated gasket. Same result. Tried turning gasket around, stretching, compressing, etc all to no avail. Noticed that there was water ouside the gasket all along the top and down the right side of the door. Discovered that I coud stop the leak by holding pressure on the door. Looks like the latch and hinges are wearing out and giving way. New diswasher is on order....

CustomerJason from Fort Wayne IN

Water was leaking into the door, causing the dishwasher to trip the gfi outlet.

First, make sure there is no power to the dishwasher. Then I remove the screws that hold the front door panel insert to the inside of the door. Next, separate the red detergent motor from the rinse air/soap dispenser. Then remove the rinse aid and soap dispenser - there are two or three nut head screws holding it in. Then simply remove and replace the detergent door latch grommet and reassemble. I've run my dishwasher 5-6 times since replacing this grommet and have had no leaks. The dishwasher is working like new. It was a simple fix and the cost of the part is minimal. I'm glad I checked the PartSelect site.

Water leak around the door

First, I want to thank others who have replied stating that they also needed the Dispenser Door Latch Grommet. I did, too.

Door Gasket-I used needle nosed pliers to grab the old gasket and pulled it right out. I took notice of the direction of the inside of the gasket to ensure I replaced the new in the same direction. I used a warm and wet wash cloth to clean around the gasket home and then gently pressed the new one in. Done! Just like that.

Dispenser Door Latch Grommet-
1. Unscrewed the 7 torx screws
2. Lifted the inside door
3. Unplugged the electrical connectors. Make careful note as to which goes where. They require moderate pressure to remore and reinstall (R&R).
4. I saw that the grommet did indeed need replacing and cleaned the old soap from inside the door.
5. Used a nut driver to unscrew the two screws holding the latch assembly. Needle nosed pliers will also work.
6. R&R the old and new grommet.
7. Reinserted the latch assembly and tightened the screws.
8. Replaced the inside of the door and fastened with the 7 torx screws.
9. No leaks. :-)
