Water leak

  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Wrench (Adjustable)

With dishwasher removed from cabinet, I next removed the dishwasher racks and with a large adjustable wrench turned the vent cover (located on side wall) inside the dishwasher counter-clockwise a quarter of a turn or so and removed the vent cover and then air/ water inlet unit from the outside of the machine. I cleaned the unit and washer wall area prior to replacing the gasket. Replaced the gasket in the air/water inlet vent and reassembled in reverse order. Entire gasket replacement repair took about 5 minutes or less. Most of the time in this project is spent removing and then replacing the dishwasher in the cabinet cavity. My total project time was about 30 minutes.

Please be aware the basket shown on this site is the original basket that came with the dishwasher. The basket they sent is not original. It is the dark grey basket found on every other site when searching for this item. You can save yourself some cash buying this non original basket from at least a half dozen other sites.

Instructions on "how to" change this part are at the end of this rant. First , I'll tell how I know. Jenn-Air (and several other brands that use this same control panel) have a design defect that makes the Touch Pad Control Panel go out every two or three years due to the steam and water condensation. Last time this happened to me, the repairman came to the house to check out the problem, then ordered the part, and finally returned to install it once it arrived in the mail. I watched him change out the panel and noticed it didn't seem very complicated. This time, I decided to order the part prior to calling the repairman in hopes of saving time and a few bucks (the part seemed expensive but it was cheaper than when I had the repairmen order it.). When the part arrived, I was too busy to set up a visit from the repairman so I left it in the box for a week. Then, on Sunday, I was relaxing, got bored, and I decided I'd try to replace it myself. Turned out, it was easy to do and, thus, it was not necessary to call the repairman at all. That definitely saved money! Having watched the part being replaced a couple of years ago made it easier for me to do, but I think it would be easy for any mechanically minded person to figure out. It's all very straightforward. Do remember to turn off the electricity, or it will remind you as it did me._________* How to: 1. Turn off electricity to dishwasher. 2. Remove all the bolts in the door frame (note where the two long bolts that attach to the dishwasher front are located.) 3. Remove the front Dishwasher panel by pulling it up to detach. 4. Open a gap between the inside panel and the control panel and notice how the electric ribbon connector attaches and detaches - then detach it. 5. Open the gap wider, find and remove the three screws located at the bottom of panel that you are replacing. 5. Detach the whole plastic control panel by pulling it out of the slot. 6. Push the new Control panel into place. 7. Screw in the three screws at the bottom of the control panel. 8. Attach the electric ribbon connector - push it in securely without bending. 9. Close gap between the inside panel and the control panel and replace all the short bolts securely. 10. Slip Dishwasher front into place and then replace the two long bolts to hold it securely. 11. Turn on electricity and test the lights on control panel. If the lights work, the dishwasher should work. Congratulations. No charge. You've got to love the internet.

Stripped threads on plastic motor shaft

  • Customer: charles from Orange, TX
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

I watched the youtube video and followed the steps. The first time I tried it without taking the motor out because I didn't want to spill water on the floor, but I wasn't able to tighten the new motor shaft all the way so nothing lined up and it didn't work. Second time I followed instructions exactly and it worked like a charm. This is the second repair I have made to this dishwasher that was given to me for free because the door latch was broken. I fixed that problem for around $12.00. This time it broke because something metal got jammed in the motor causing the threaded shaft to strip. This repair cost around $80.00. Still the cheapest, nicest dishwasher that I could ask for. A+++ for partselect.com on price, service, and delivery. Thanks.

I simply removed old lower dishrack from dishwasher and discarded. Then I removed new lower dishrack from box and installed it into dishwasher, no tools necessary. How easy is that?! New lower dishrack is a perfect replacement and now our dishwasher is good to go. Thank you PartSelect for your fast service.

The original problem that brought me to Parts select was a broken wheel on the top tray. While searching for part #s I came across several descriptions of dishes not clean . The videos available on line here were very detailed. This encouraged me to go ahead and order the parts. They arrived soon and were accurate to my order. The video on replacing the seal and chopper walked me through the entire job very clearly. Going slow and carefully keeping track of al screws I replaced the chopper, impeller and the filter. The filter did have a tear in the screening which allowed dirty water back up into the dishwasher.

Dishwasher started leaking

Pulled the dishwasher out from the counter. Wiring and supply hose were long enough that I did not need to disconnect them. Suspected a leak in the injector hose but the evidence was circumstantial. That is mineral deposits collected around the area where the house connects to a small plastic box and then into the dishwasher. I replaced the hose in a few minutes and added a clamp on the box side where no clamp was called for. So far, no leaks.

The docking stations just pulled of and snapped on. I took the tube in the back out to make sure the docking stations were seated well but I'm not even sure that was needed. Very easy. Another contributing factor was using rinse aid with an all-in-one gel pack detergent. I let the rinse aid run out and it's been working great ever since.
