Very loud noises during cycle

  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

The very first thing to do is watch the online video. That was the most helpful tool. Once we saw how it should be done. We removed the bottom plate and securing screws. Disconnected the water supply line, electric, waste line and pulled the unit on top of the tarp we set down. We then tuned the unit on its side, removed the old motor, greased the new gasket and re installed. The only problems we incurred were minor. The first being that there was still water in the waste line. That was a bit messy but able to deal with. The second was that the 3/8" nut driver was very difficult to get seated on the locking nut. My wife had to actually pull up on the plastic shield in order to insert the nut driver on the nut. Once that was done, it was a piece of cake. Saved ourselves over $700.00 with this repair. Thank you Parts Select.

I watched the top spinner arm in the dishwasher to see if it was turning. It was not. I figured the chopper assembly screen might be clogged, or the blade might have been stuck. I found the repair video from PartSelect on YouTube (it's also on the Chopper Assembly website) and followed the instructions. The chopper shaft was broken. I ordered the part, and thankfully it was on my doorstep the next day using standard shipping. Following the video's instructions, I had a working dishwasher again in about 15 minutes. Thanks.

The door switch did not allow for the dishwasher to reset after washing. It was an easy fix, just remove the top trim panel (6 screws) pull out the switches, replace and reassemble. Just be aware that there two switches two replace.

The dishwasher lost all power. Once I confirmed that I had not blown a circuit breaker, I opened the dishwasher and disassembled the door panel. Fortunately, KitchenAide had provided a very detailed diagnostic chart behind the kick panel. It took me 15 minutes with a multimeter to determine that the TCO had blown. Once it arrived, it took 15 minutes to replace. All is well now.

Pulled motor out replace bearings cleaned up then installed the seals as discribed in your website. This is something my repairman didnt want to do. Only cost me the 50 dollars and a few hours with my brother. LOVE your website. It makes it alot easier to fix and saves me alot of money. Thank you. Debra

I ordered a utensil basket for my Whirlpool dishwasher and it fit perfectly. Your sales person who I contacted via telephone helped me even though I had no serial number information; she went through various pictures, emailing them to me and it only took a few minutes and up came the correct basket. Will do business with you again.

At first I thought something was jammed in the impeller, so I took it completely apart(gutted it). Put it back together and still the same. thought it could be the control panel or maybe the door switch. changed the door switch with a new from PartSelect and still the same.Took it apart again this time checked the motor and sure enough it was frozen.Took impeller off only to find motor shaft was corroded from water damage mechanical seal must have leaked. BAD quality control also found a loose rubber washer in the motor housing and the door handle hinge was broke in half. I'm sure it was shipped this way. Thanks for the speedy delivery and fair pricing. Chris

Top rack not cleaning dishes

  • Customer: g v from Chicago, IL

Originally, I bought this kit first, and a few minutes later I read further and realized it was probably the chopper assembly (which it was and I did that repair). I decided to replace the spinner anyway since I had the part and it was too expensive to send it back. During the repair which was simple, the nut I received was broken (I thought it just didn't fit at the time). So, I ordered a $4 nut and paid $7+ for shipping. When that arrived, it definitely was not the right part. So I ordered the spinner kit again. This time the nut was not broken and it went together in a flash. For both repairs, the instruction video was invaluable so make sure you watch it first.

I first went to the breaker box and turned off the power. Then turned of the water supply and removed the lower panels. I proceeded to take the electrical off and disconnect the water supply tube and disconnected the drain tube. At this time I removed the counter screws and lowered the adjustable legs so I could pull the washer from under the counter. Want it is out I laid it on its side and unplugged the power cord to the motor and removed the 3/8 inch hex head screw , so I could turn the pump 1/4 turn and removed it. To replace the new pump I first aligned the arrows on pump and motor housing and placed the pump back into the sump housing and reversed the removal process. It was just that easy . Thank for the quick shipping of the pump and motor.
