CustomerPeter from Colleyville TX

Control panel buttons were worn out, circuit board shorted out

Turned off the power at the breaker; took the screws out of the door panel; the control panel was already loose; I took the lock mechanism off the panel, and then removed the electric bundle panel from the control panel; the only thing left was the cicuit board, which I removed, and the wires to it were in a clip all together; I clipped the wires to the new cicuit board, replaced it in the panel slot, then clipped in the wire bundle; the lock mechanism fit right where it was supposed to, then I replaced all the screws in the door panel , starting at the top where the control panel was; I turned the power back on, then turned on the dishwasher- it worked just like new. This was a fairly easy fix for about $150; that would have been the service charge and time alone for a repairman, not including the marked up price of the parts. PartSelect was a lifesaver.

Dishwasher would not start when normal was selected. Would run fine if other option selected.

I began by opening the door to the dishwasher. The front panel on this unit is a custom wood panel held on by six screws. I removed the screws and the front panel. Then I unscrewed the two remaining screws holding the control panel onto the door. I also removed the two screws holding the door latch in position. With all screws removed the control panel simply slid off the top of the door. Inside the control panel, I used a small screw drive to pry the retainer clips back from the edge of the electronic control board. The control panel then snaps out. I disconnected the ribbon cable from both boards and reinstalled the new ribbon cable. I then reattached the ribbon cable to the new electronic control board and snapped the new control board into place. I reinstalled the control panel and tested the "Normal" position to insure the dishwasher would respond appropriately. After checking for proper operation, I reinstalled all screws,including the door latch and the front cover. Operation complete.

CustomerLynn from Leo IN

Control selection pad not functioning

1st important: Make sure to turn off electricity from the dishwasher I did this from my circuit breaker to insure safety. Removed the front panel of the dishwasher, disconnected the control panel & the Electronic Control Board. Removed the 2 items. The parts arrived very promptly as promised, connectected the wires & installed. As long as someone is mechanically inclined & savy with electronics shouldn't run into any problems. Dishwasher now working as good as new. Saved significantly, previously priced out repairman & parts would have been more then double the costs incurred & saved $1000.00 if I would have purchased a new dishwasher of equal value.

Replaced the control board and panel

Start Button on top was worn away and the contact below was no longer starting the dishwasher. Removed the Torx screws holding the latch then the remaining holding the outer door, be careful it can be a touch heavy and bulky. disconnected the wiring harness from the door to the (computer) you might want to mark the positions of the 4 blade type wires as the connections are the same size.. take a picture before you start removal, or use a bit of tape. Once wires are removed, use a jewelers or very small blade screwdriver to separate the wiring from the control panel from the computer, it is easier if you do this while it is still in the plastic housing as it can be a bit tight to remove then simply push back the retainers, not much force is needed, if you look closely you can see where the (teeth) hold the computer and old control board down. Once you have separated the control board and the computer from the housing, install the control board, with the switches aligned under the contact buttons, and clip it into place, then the computer and the wiring to the control board.. then connect back to dishwasher, and reinstall the door, You may want to have someone assist in holding the door in place and lightly install the center screws, then the bottoms before the upper ones, after all are aligned and started then go back and tighten all screws, remember, you don't need to over tighten them. once replaced, test and and start. It is easy I was quoted over $400 for this job.. I bought the parts for $200 and saved $200. Good Luck.

It took multiple pushes to start the dishwasher

I removed the screws that hold the front on the dishwasher, then unplugged all the wires, removed the damaged control , replaced it with the new control and put the dishwasher front back on. Took about 30 minutes. Everything started up on the first push of the button.

CustomerColby from Peyton CO

Door fell open and dishwasher wouldnt start with 2 blinking control lights

Unplug Dishwasher
Open Dishwasher door
remove all internal racks
cover drain area with towels
Slide dishwasher out from under counter.

1.) fixing door falling open.
Assess the good side rope path and replicate in mirror image on the broken side.
Replace the other side while in there.
This was an easy fix

2.) fixing dishwasher not starting
a.) remove screws which attach front panel. Support panel while doing this as it will fall off. punch screws into scrap carboard panel in the order / position they come out so you can easily get them back where they belong.

b.) remove upper screws which hold on black plastic control panel.

c.) remove panel, take pictures / make notes of wire positions and colors, this can be tough to get correct if you do not do this. Once all wire positions are documented, disconnect wiring harness. THIS IS THE MOST CRITICAL PART.

d.) pry out old button panel, be careful to not break the mounting tabs.

e.) connect new button panel to wiring, snap into place.

f.) reconnect all wires based on pictures notes.

g.) reattach all screws in the order they came out.

CustomerSteven from San Jose CA

Heater element corroded. Dispernser wouldn't latch. Button wore off display panel.

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.

Control lock stuck - probably the energy saver button got stuck

Ordered the part, opened the front door and unscrew all buttons (may need a 2nd person to hold the door panel so it doesn't fall down). Removed damage board, replaced with new board. Reassembled parts to fit together and screw door/panel back together. Works great now!
