CustomerDavid from Chester NJ

Started as noise when running, but not when filling

I initially thought the pump assembly was dying (or was damaged by a piece of glass or something that had gotten into the pump. I priced the parts and decided I wasn't sure the unit was worth it. But the dishwasher was also not cleaning well, and was leave soap on the dishes. Turned out the water inlet valve was intermittently failing to open. Using the troubleshooting guide (both downloadable and inside the bottom panel) was no help. I just checked and saw that there was power going to the valve when it did not open: diagnosis made. Step 1: turn off water to dishwasher. Step two: remove bottom panel. Step 3, place towels under dishwasher. Step 4, disconnect water line from elbow screwed into inlet valve. Step 5: remove inlet valve screw with nut driver and slide valve sideways and back to remove. Step 6: slide clamp on hose to dishwasher away from valve using pliers. Some work involve with sliding hose off the valve (careful, the hose is accordioned plastic) Step 7: remove elbow from inlet valve (this required a visegrip to hold the narrow nut surface on the valve and a wrench to turn the elbow). Step 8: apply Teflon tape to elbow and screw into new inlet valve. Step 9: install hose to dishwasher and return clamp to hold hose in place. Step 10: reinstall valve by placing tongues into grooves and sliding to the left, reinstall screw. Step 11: tighten elbow with wrench, now that valve is held in place. Step 12: reinstall water line. Step 13: turn on supply line and check for leaks

CustomerJeffory from McDonough GA

Leaking water near front of dishwasher

This was an easy repair. The leak was around the solenoid of the inlet valve and thus the assembly needed replacement. Turn off the water. Take the screws that secure it to the cabinet out. Pull the dishwasher out where you can tip it on its side. (you might get someone to help you hold it tipped. Disconnect the water line (copper) and the inlet hose (just clipped on)and the electric connection.
Take one screw out that holds the valve assembly in place and remove the valve assembly.
Put the new assembly in as the reverse procedure. Make sure to use plumbing tape on the threads to the copper water connection so that you wont have a drip leak when its tightened.

My dishwasher was making a heck of a noise.

Disconnected Power, Turned off water valve, disconnected drain return line, disconnected water line, removed two screws on inside-top that was mounted to counter, pulled out dishwasher while feeding power cord, drain line, water line. Turned Dishwasher on it's side and disconnected water line and water fill line from Fill valve Assembly. Disconnected power connector from Valve. Removed one screw from Fill valve assembly and removed Fill valve assembly.
Installed Fill valve assembly and screwed screw back in. Installed Water line and water fill line from valve. Snapped power connector back in. Doubled checked Fill Valve connections to make sure they were tight. Slide Dishwasher back in while lines and power back through to under sink. Made sure Dishwasher was set in place and mounted two screws to counter. Connected water line to water valve and connected discharge line back to it's location. Turn water back on. Plug power back in.
Turned unit on and checked for leaks at the fill Valve assembly, water line and discharge tube.
Saved ~ $ 100.00. Easy job. I wished I didn't wait so long when it was making the noise for so long...Good luck..

CustomerGordon from Tarpon Springs FL

Not enough water going into the dishwasher and screaming noise.

Other than the repair part being at the bottom of the dishwasher and you had to lie on your stomach to do the swap out, it was just one screw, move the part out a little closer to you then pull off one electrical wire, and pull off one small hose and using wrench unhook the other small hose.

Of course I had to take it apart a second time because of a leak, but using 3 or 4 circles of the white plumbers tape, it took care of the leak.

Water would not enter machine

Tried to clean old part and it did not work. Ordered the new part on Saturday and received it on Tuesday. Removed the old part and installed the new one. Ran the machine and it worked great. A big savings on not having to buy a new machine!!

Water not draining

My wife told me that the washing machine was shaking as if it was unbalanced while in the spin cycle and it would not drain all the way. The clothes were wet and standing water was left in the drum. I took the rear panel off and found the drain pump easy to get to. I removed it, took it apart and found that a quarter was lodged in the pump. This ate away at the fins that push the water out. I looked for the part on ……… but could not find it. The on line person help me and it was ordered. The next day the part came in and it was installed in 10 minutes. The washer works just fine
