Customerkathleen from holden MA

Dispenser door would not stay closed

First, I turned the power off at the circuit breaker.
Next, removed six screws securing front panel to the dishwasher. Then, disconnected power supply to the dispenser. Followed by unscrewing the four screws that held dispenser in place. Easily removed unit and replaced with new dispenser. Secured in place with screws, then connected power supply. Then, fastened front panel and turned circuit breaker back on.
Viola! New dispenser is working like a charm!

CustomerBeverly from Elroy WI

Dispenser leaked jet dry

Remove lower dish shelf and cover the bottom of the washer (Drain). Be assured, something is going to fall in. I removed all the screws around the sides and top. Be careful when removing the 2 top corner screws as the panel fell away from the door. Once the screws are out I was able to close the door and separate it. This was the most difficult part as the nuts are very small and under the dispenser therefore difficult to get at. Also, I couldn't separate the door very far because of the wire harness. Be patient, you will finally get them out. Push out the old dispenser, put the new one in and tighten the nuts. Be sure they are well tightened! If not it will leak and you will have to take everything apart, and you will be very upset..I know.
All in all, it wasn't really difficult.

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.
