At first I was confused on how to repair this, but once I was able to unscrew the large cover to reveal the inside area, it became clear on which part to replace. The screws were a star type, in which I was able to use an old IKEA hex wrench. There is a small plastic tip that unscrews in the center of this part. Once you unscrew that, the part comes right out. This is my second time ordering a part from these guys for this washer. They are awesome!! The part came in 2 days, so happy!!

Upon taking the dishes out of the dish washer I noticed the center spray arm was broken!

We first ordered the wrong part, but thankfully partselect was happy to return the item. I first got to say identifying the right part is a lot easier if you know what it looked like before it broke! Upon receiving the corrected part much faster than we expected (2 days on a saturday!) I began to assess the situation. I needed a star-type bit for a screw driver to remove the screws. Thankfully it was a standard size that comes in most cheap screwdriver kits. I removed the 3 screws on the round lid at the bottom that covered the piece, removed the old center spray nozzle. I then tried to put the old one on and later discovered the small plastic piece I thought was the place to mount it on was actually the old part broken. I unscrewed the old piece and put the new one on, made sure it was tight. I replaced the round lid that covered the other piece up, put the spray arm on and the center spray jet inside, screwed it down tight. Rotated the spray arm to make sure it moved freely. We then turned the dish washer on to make sure it was spinning and pumping water, etc. Everything appeared to be working fine, so we loaded it up with dishes and the dish washer washed much better than it had in the past. The dish washer came with the trailer, so we don't know how old it is for sure. We had a problem with the dishes on the top not getting washed properly if you don't load the bottom rack just right. We later noticed on a previous comment that others had a problem with the top rack not getting clean because of this part. I highly recommend this site to anyone fixing any home appliance! Lately we've been having a lot of repair expenses and this site saved us some serious money! We expected to have to buy a new dish washer, because the cost of a repairman to fix it would likely to exceed the cost of a new dish washer. We've been researching doing fix-it jobs ourself and any time we can safely repair something ourself, we try our best to do it. I especially love the breakdown of the parts. I'm not a mechanic, plumber, etc. I am a Ham Radio Operator who used to work as a Cashier. I don't know what you call all the parts, and some I have no clue what they do, but I can look at the picture and find a part that looks like what I need! I can look at the break-down page and see what must be removed to get to the part. In short, I'm an average guy who used the information available to me to fix the dish washer myself. When a company like partselect can enable a average guy to repair something for a fraction of the cost of paying a professional, that's definitely an innovative idea! A lot of the instructions on this site really lack the description of how to fix it. Granted, this job, once you look at it is incredibly simple! The only thing I have to say is make sure you have a star bit to take off the screws before you begin. Having the right tools to begin makes it go much quicker.

My wife was visiting her parents in Ecuador and she relayed back to me that their dishwasher was inoperative. She explained the situation and I researched the problem with Parts Select. The solution was simple, since Parts Select had an array of extremely helpful step by step repair instructions. I sent her the link, ordered the door switches, and she did the repair by viewing the video. It was an outstanding, effortless experience! Thanks to Parts Select, not only was the parts inexpensive, but instruction videos are to the tee!

I took out the old gaskets and replace them after I clean and dried them. very easy. I'm a woman and if I can do it anyone can. Although I used the parts it did not fix the problem. So with help of parts select I'm on to the next solution. They're great fast fast on your supplies.

Broken wheel on upper rack and missing rack stops

  • Customer: Robert from Madison, AL
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Bought extra parts incase I messed up. Fitted the wheel to the rack fairly quickly. Had to remove one rack stop, with a pair of pliers, in order to completely remove the rack from the moveable tracks. Folded over one of the rack stops and locked it in place completely. This is the wrong thing to do as it will not slide into the end of the moveable track. The trick is to partially fold the rack stop and start it into the moveable track. Then when the rack stop is inside the moveable track you can finish completing the folding of the rack stop. Once folded completely it is impossible to get the part unfolded.

Mice were living behind and on top of the dishwasher and destroyed the pad. Had to throw it away. Ordering you was easy, and the pad fit perfectly.
