Thought hoses were clogged. Cleaned hoses but no obstructions. Googled the problem and found many similar problems. On PartSelect, the Piston and Nut Assembly was found to be the problem 44% of the time. I ordered the part and it arrived two days later. PartSelect showed how to install it and the problem was fixed.

Dishwasher not draining completely

  • Customer: Paul from Hopatcong, NJ
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

This was a piece of cake! Simply removed the rear drain cover with a nut driver and unscrewed the piston from its seat. I noted that the seal in the old piston had deteriorated over time. I rubbed a little petroleum jelly on the upper gasket of the new piston and simply screwed it into place, solving the problem entirely. Could not believe how quickly the part was delivered - next day!

Super easy! Took old end caps off and slid rack out. could have re-used end caps, but got new ones just in case the old ones broke. Hardest part was removing old roller axles from rack. Flipped rack upside down on table and made it easy to put new axles and rollers on, slid rack back in and installed new end caps. Probably took 10 minutes to do repair.

Water wouldn't fully drain from dishwasher

I reinstalled a new piston/nut assembly which was easy as per this forum. The two compared side to side clearly showed my old one as worn out and deteriorated. This however wasn't the only problem. Once new piston/nut assembly was installed the water still did not drain. I pulled the dishwasher out from the cabinet, disconnected the hose connected from the pump to the outer box the piston/nut assembly connected to and flushed that out. I discovered two pieces of broken glass in the box that may have been blocking the rubber flapper connecting the box to the drain hose. Glass was removed and once all was reconnected the unit drained perfectly. Check for potential debris in outer piston/nut assembly piece if simple change out of of piston/nut assembly doesn't solve the issue.

dishwasher would not fill with water and cycle

first off if you can understand the problem DO NOT CALL THE GE REPAIR SERVICE AND HAVE A REPAIRMAN COME TO YOUR HOME you will save over $300.00. a mistake i made, it cost me $79.95 just for him to tell me the dishwasher was broken and then i was told it would cost me over $300.00 to fix it. WHEN I TALKED TO PARTSELECT I FOUND THE WATERVALVE FOR A LITTLE OVER $55.00 WITH SHIPPING IT TOOK ABOUT 20 MINUTES TO DISCONNECT THE DISHWASHER AND REMOVE THE OLD PART AND ABOUT THE SAME AMOUNT OF TIME TO REPLACE THE NEW ONE THEY EVEN HAD GOOD INSTRUCTIONS IF YOU NEEDED THEM. I FOUND PARTSELECT SERVICE TO BE A VERY GOOD BUSINESS TO WORK WITH. ROY F BURTNETT

existing gasket dry rotted

This repoair was needed due to diswasher leaking out of side door. I just moved in about 6 months ago and needed to use dishwasher. When it leaked i noticed it was in need of a gasket. I searched the internet and came accross "part select". Part showed up in less than 3 days and was a breeze to install. The original gasket came out just by pulling, cleaned up channel and installed new gasket.slid in real easy. I did take off inner door panel to inspect for any damage. none noted. Perfect fit first time. Dont get confused folks if the part has another name as some parts are interchangeable in the industry.

Dishwasher not draining properly and leaking over the floor

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

Found the solenoid was shot and not diverting water into the drain. Somewhere along the line, it had overheated and frozen the plunger in plastic. Figured for about $60, I could replace it and the worn out piston valve seal and save the cost of a new dishwasher. After replacing the solenoid and piston valve, and giving the whole system a thorough cleaning out of accumulated grease and gunk (yuck), we have a dishwasher working like new and my wife is amazed at my mechanical abilities. Thanks for making me look good and keeping one more appliance out of the landfill.
