Thought it was the control panel. Searched online, found you. Learned it was Bi-Metal Fuse. Received part in 2 days. Replaced in ten minutes. Wife is thrilled and I'm happy I didn't have to pay a service guy $150+ to knock on my door, plus parts and labor! WIN! Telling all my friends about this site! Keep it up!!

This had to be the most inexpensive approach we have ever tried with an appliance repair! One of the 4 supports on our DW had broken, leaving the basket drooping on one side. We thought we would have to have a repairman over and replace the entire basket. Not so! We found the broken part on PartSelect, purchased it, and it was a piece of cake. We have an icemaker problem with our refigerator, so will be doing the same soon, after watching the repair video. This is the only way to go when it comes to repairs!

These directions are for Whirlpool dishwasher model # DU1055XTVB8. The steps below might be slightly different if you have a different model dishwasher.

1. Turn the electrical power off.

2. Remove both the lower and upper racks from inside the dishwasher. To remove the top one, it is necessary to remove the plastic stops at the end of each track. Push in on the tab on each of these stops and lift them up to remove. The lower rack has no stops and just slides out.

3. Put a towel on the bottom of the dishwasher (to catch any parts that might fall).

4. Remove the Philips screw from the top of the feed tube (the plastic part onto which the spinner attaches).

5. Pull down slightly on the feed tube and remove the plastic fastener (which holds the spinner in place) from the top of the feed tube.

6. Insert a new plastic fastener (with its head up) into the hole of the feed tube. Position the spinner under the feed tube and then snap the spinner and new plastic fastener together.

7. Reinstall the Philips screw into the top of the feed tube.

8. Remove the towel and put the racks back inside the dishwasher.

9. Turn electrical power back on.

Under Counter Anti-Tip Brackets Broke

I put this unit in about 3 years ago and the brackets broke at the crease and the dishwasher fell forward. Found the right bracket and when it arrived looked a match. Checked link to video showing how to properly install the brackets. The original manufacturer never stated that the tab that goes through the frame is supposed to be bent 90 degrees to prevent the bracket from coming out. Thank you PartSelect for that video because I would probably end up ordering brackets again in a few years.

Turned off the circuit breaker to the dishwasher. Removed the screws inside the door to open the control panel. Located the thermal fuse. Removed the wires from the thermal fuse. Using a multimeter verified the thermal fuse was open. Ordered the replacement part from part select. Order was placed on a Saturday evening. Part was at my door on Wednesday morning. Using the previous method to access the control panel, I removed the thermal fuse and replaced it with the one received. I choose to replace just the thermal fuse and not cut the wire and splice in the new wire that came in the package. Replaced the control panel, tightened the screws. Dishwasher has worked great ever since! The actual replacement of the thermal fuse took less than 15 minutes. I'd hate to think what a service call and repair would have cost me compared to doing the repair myself.

no lights on the control panel.

I checked on line and found evidence that my problem most likely was the failure of the circulation Pump Motor. I ordered the motor from Parts Select. When it arrived, a small section of the housing was damaged. I called for a replacement. The customer service agent was very helpful and the replacement arrived in less than 24 hours. I followed the video provided on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LjRxJy2IUE8 and the one on PartSelect. Both videos helps provide greater clarity for the whole job. The hardest part of the replacement was disconnecting and reconnecting the water supply line. These were my steps. 1. I turned off the electrical power and water supply. 2. I removed the screws holding the dishwasher to the counter top. 3. I removed the two screws holding the bottom access panel. 4. I moved the dishwasher out about one foot and disconnected the water supply line. (Fortunately I didn't have to disconnect the power supply and drain hose because there was enough slack in these lines.) 5. I moved the dishwasher all the way out from the counter and moved it over on the its side. 6. I removed the bolt holding the motor and the motor shield. 7. I removed the connector supplying power to the motor and removed the motor. 8. I removed the inside screen, cleaned and replaced it. I also wiped the other surfaced with a clean rag to ensure a proper seal for the motor. 9. I also applied vasaline to the rubber grommet on the motor to ensure against leaks. 9. I aligned the arrows on the new motor housing and impeller housing and installed the motor as shown in the videos. 10. I reinstalled the motor shield and retaining bolt. 11. I reconnected the water supply, stood the dishwasher upright, turned on the water supply and found I needed to tighten the water supply connection a little more to stop a minor leak. 12. I ran the dishwasher through a rinse cycle to ensure it worked properly and that there were no leaks around the newly installed motor. 13. I reinstalled the dishwasher under the counter top, reinstalled the screws holding it to the counter top and replaced the lower access panel. While this took me a few hours, it was well worth the effort because a repair person wanted $500 to do the job. Thus, I saved well over $300 after paying for the motor. Good Luck with your repair job.

Dirty Dishes

Removed lower spinner and bracket tube in rear of washer. Unscrewed the four screws that hold the pump cover. removed pump cover then unscrewed the two screws that cover the water intake port of the pump. One cover is hard to lift out. The best way is to use an L shaped tool like an Allen wrench and lift it out. Once thats out you see the filter with the cutter blades. Be careful those blades are sharp and will cut you. Removed old filter and installed new one. Make sure you line up the edges. Its not completely round but instead has small cutouts on each side that help it fit tight in the lower piece. Once you get yours you'll see what I mean. Take your time fitting the cover back on as the filter tends to move a bit and it can be difficult to line it up.
