We followed the directions on your video and it was fixed in 45 minutes. That includes pulling out the dishwasher and replacing the parts on both sides of the door. The parts were received in less than 3 days. Would recommend this company to friends and family.
Done as with the video (which is much appreciated). Stretching the spring was rather difficult with our machine. A spring puller would have helped.
Removed the bottom cover with the nut driver. Removed the two screws attaching the top of the dishwasher to the underside of the cabinet. With the wrench lowered the front of the dishwasher so that it would slide out of the cabinet. Once out the balance cables could be seen and were replaced. Attach the cable to the door, feed it around the new and improved bracket (part of the kit), attach to the spring and then attach the spring to the back of the lower rail. Repeat on the other side. Reinstall the dishwasher. This took longer than all the rest of the job due to the poor work done by the home builder's plumber in the original install. Replace the front cover and sound shield. All and all very easy.
It was very simple - I gave the package to my wife - got a beer from the fridge and sat down and watched her repair the door.She had it done in no time and was very happy that the installation was so simple .Thanks
I watched the video and followed the instructions. I was very impressed with the video and the entire process.
The repair video on line was very helpful.It made the job much easier.Well done to you guys.
I ordered the part, and received it in about 2 days. Great delivery. Opened up the package and watched the video. I didn't have a nut driver, so it took me a bit longer to do with a plier. I was thrilled to have done it myself as a repair man had quoted $170 to fix it!!!! I did it myself for around $25. Made my day..............no, it really made my week. I'm an Female over 60!! Husband doesn't do any repairs. Loved the video too, it made it really easy. If I had a nutdriver it would have been done in around a half hour.
The online video showed me all I needed to know in order to complete the repair. Ordering the parts was as easy as could be and the person whom I spoke to was helpful and friendly. The parts were sent quickly and received the next day. The actual repair was completed in 15 minutes... the hardest part was pulling out the dishwasher and once pulled, the repairs were completed quickly and easily. Saved over $150 by doing it myself. Thanks Partselect for making this an easy do it yourself repair.
pulled dish washer from under cabinet. let door down, removed old link kit, installed new rollers and ropes, pulled springs into place, and hooked into ropes.
because of your video on how to repair this problem, it gave me the insight as to what to expect, unfortunatly I had to disconect the dishwasher completely to gain access to the back of the unit because when the link broke the spring came loose and had to be re-attatched. after attaching the spring it was easy as the video showed. I would recomend your web site to anyone. ps: I also shoped sears for the same part and their's was higher and was going to take twice as long to get, so thanks for your help. cordially, Ron
Put a new designed
Disconnect the water and power supply to the unit. Remove the kick plate with a screwdriver and pull the unit from under the counter far enough to expose both door lift springs. With the door closed and locked release the tenson on the spring and remove the cable latch from the spring.One of mine was broke so this only had to be done on one side. With a 5/16 nut driver remove the bolt that holds the guide pullys in place. This is where I learned the problem from the original instulation. There are three screw holes to adjust the amount of tension on the cable. Mine was set with the most tension which is what caused the cable to break. I installed the new cables in the reverse order from above with the least amount of tension. It still supports the door but with less strain on the spring and cables. Good Luck
Removed dishwasher and connected the new link to spring and door arm. Reinstalled machine.
repaired the same as utube video
