detergent laying at the bottom, not fully dissolved

Removed screws around the door, unplugged the solenoid,lifted the tabs on the dispenser and removed the dispenser. Installed the new dispenser, plugged the solenoid back in and reistalled the door screws. ran the dishwasher and the same issue still happened. I removed the water fill valve, I cleaned the inlet screen and exercised the plunger. I hooked up the water supply to it and gave it a 120v supply power to it. I don't recommend to the average homeowner to do what I did, I am an experience tech. The water valve worked everytime I applied power to it, I reinstalled the water valve but I haven't ran the dishwasher yet. If the problem continues, then it must be the electronics. It will be cheaper to replace the diswasher due to it being 8 yers old.

purchased the correct seal, opened the door and pulled out the old one with one motion. marked the middle on the new one then installed with a little bit of pushing into the slot from one side to the other. making sure to tuck the ends into the recess at bottom of each end and clip off the excess and done! but make sure you replace the lock tab on the top when you replace the seal!!! it comes with it but you will have to slide the washer out a bit to push the old one out, There are no fasteners, Just push out and snap in and wala!! dry floor

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.

dispenser lid would not close

To begin, I unscrewed the 10-12 screws. You do not need to unscrew the screws on the sides (if you have them) they simply hold the panel to the door hinges and do not affect the panels to come apart. Truth be told, it originally took longer than 15-30 minutes, but that's because I was doing this all wrong at first -- which has much reason why I'm posting a comment. My dishwasher panels were stuck together, much like Mike from Austin, TX. I decided this was not the way the manufacturer built this dishwasher because no technician would be able to fix it either, if so. We used heat to fix the problem. Running the dishwasher heated the sticky styrofoam so that, although it still stuck, it was easier to pry apart once warmed. SO-- after washing, we unscrewed everything, then gently pulled the door panels apart, you do have to lift up a bit as it does rest on a hook. Then after that it was as simple as everyone says, unscrew the 6 hex screws, remount the new dispenser, replace the wires (blue/black goes on the inside, solid blue on the outside), then replace the panel. **if you need pictures, there are youtube videos available, BUT, they will not show you how to pull off the sticky styrofoam, just so you know ;-).

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 had to remove 4 screws in the top of the door and pull the door apart being careful not to stretch the wires to far and then twist the vent in the front of the door to unlock the part and remove two wires from the part and reverse the order to finish. The repair went like clock work and every thing is working properly now.

Dispenser Didn't Dispense

Took off front door panel, unscrewed old unit. Installed new unit. Hooked up wires. Replaced front door panel. Reinstalling the front door panel was the most time consuming. It has to slide in a certain way. Also, I thought the dispenser wasn't sitting properly, so I took the whole thing apart again, but it is supposed to sit at a slight angle. I basically did the job twice in a half hour.
