CustomerManfred from Fredricksburg, VA

Some of the fold up/down tines in the lower basket were defective as well as the door handle was broken

The wheels and clip were just snapped in to replace old or missing ones. The door latch required the inside cover of the door assembly to be loosen enough to remove the old latch and replace the new latch.
approximately ten screws were involved.

Plastic door handle broke

It is an easy repair, but you need the right tools to remove the inside of the dishwasher door (a hex wrench set) and then to remove and replace two screws holding the plastic door handle in place (1/4 inch Allen wrench). Make sure the power is off even for this repair because it can't be done without coming close to electrical elements.

CustomerBrian from Elkridge, MD

Dishwasher made a grinding sound - very loud. Did a poor job cleaning.

I took the lower pump assembly apart to find the problem. The biggest challenge was figuring out how to remove the cover. In the center, the assembly is held together with a round plastic nut about 1.5 inches in diameter - simply rotate it counter-clockwise to remove. I then removed the pump housing and found the impeller broken in two and the disk that was supposed to be attached to the top of the pump housing broken off. This was causing the noise and greatly reduced efficiency of the pump. I replaced the impeller and upper pump housing (bought the gasket too since it is hard to remove the old one) and put everything back together using the diagrams provided on the site. While many rate this repair as "easy" - it is only after you figure everything out! If you knew exactly what you were doing, the project could be done in 10 minutes. I had to study the diagram and it took me some time to disassemble, figure out what was wrong, read posts, order parts and reassemble. I also replaced the handle which had broken on one side which was simple. Part select is outstanding - I've used this site for my fridge, oven and now dishwasher and have avoided expensive service calls. If you are technically inclined and patient, you can repair your own appliances.

CustomerEdward from Ewing, NJ

Plastic handle had split (age and wear & tear)

As the screws took a special (non philips) head, I did need to buy a special one in the appropriate size (cell phone photos help!). Then I took off the 8 or so screws inside the front door, removed the two screws for the handle, replaced with new handle and screwed the front door back together. Not hard, would have been faster without the hardware store trip.
