The chopper blade got jammed and broke the teeth off both the chopper assembly and the impeller. I had previously replaced just the chopper blade, but the screen would be clogged after 1-2 wash cycles so I finally realized that the impeller needed to be replaced as well. Dishwasher needed to be uninstalled, flipped on its side and motor removed (1 simple bolt holding the shield). Using a screwdriver to stop the motor shaft, the impeller assembly unscrews easily. Replace the seals and screw on the new impeller, remount the motor and you are back in business! Good luck.

I would have torn something up had I not watched the video posted here first. The spring loaded chopper is a bit tricky to get in lined up properly to get the cover assembly back on. 30 minutes and several small finger tip cuts later, and the machine cleans like new.

Removed old gasket by pulling it gently from one side to the other, cleaned track where gasket sits, replaced with new gasket by folding in half and beginning in center at top of dishwasher, using strike plate as center guide, working left side then right side, applying pressure with fingers to push new gasket in channel. I did replace the strike plate, but the one provided did not match the one I removed, therefore, was not working properly, so I inserted the old one back in and everything works fine.....no leaks. The instructional YOUTUBE videos on the internet were a big help to watch before beginning the removal and install. Couldn't have been easier and I'm sure I saved about $150 in repair person costs for time and labor only.

I followed the instructions from the web site-I.E. remove the star screws, remove the front panel remove the old dispencer, install the new dispencer.NOTE** I put the old dispencer in my garage vice and connected the solenoid using 2 alligator clips on an extention chord,and to my amazement- it opened and rinse aid fluid came out.I wish I would have had the knowledge to do that prior to buying the new part. I left the new part in and all seems to be working fine.

Well after trouble shooting several components , the fill valve, the check valve , the pump motor all it turned out to be is the supply line to the dishwasher. I had installed one of those lines with an anti flood check valve in the line. Thinking it was a smart idea so if I were not home it would keep from flooding my basement etc. even when you remove the line and run it into a bucket you still get flow. But unknown to myself a majority of your appliances do not work well with these lines because when the solenoid opens it causes a surge and the check valve tries to restrict the flow. After soapy of these surges the valve sticks . When I replaced the line with a standard supply line it solved the problem. So for about $15.00 you could save yourself a lot of headaches and money by replacing that first. I'm not saying it will be the solution but start there first even if your getting water flow through that line. By the way the manufacturer of those lines at least the one I bought less than 5 montages ago do not mention that on their package and by the time you come to that conclusion you may have spent a lot of money trying to fix your machine. I had three techs that couldn't figure it out. Also the machine I have is a kitchen aid but its a common problem on a lot of brands including washing machines for clothes.

I had to pull the appliance out from under the cupboard, remove the bottom dish rack, go to the back of the dishwasher and remove the two plastic nuts and the two wires from the heater, then remove the heating element from the inside of the appliance and reverse the order. The dishwasher works fine now.
