I pulled out the unit, which proved to be the hardest part of the repair. Once it was out about half way I could remove the rope and pullies on both sides of the unit and then install the repacement units. Then I needed to stretch the springs and attach the rope clips. Spide the unit back in place and it works great.

The nylon link between the spring and the door broke.

I replaced both sides since I wanted even wear on them. I consider what Kitchen Aid did to be sub standard. A piece of cord - REALLY!!!!! Pretty cheap if you ask me. The exchange was easy. The hard part was removing the water line and power so the entire unit could be pulled out. What a royal pain! And then of course, the water line and power needed to be reconnected. Overall - an easy fix, but made significantly harder by Kitchen Aid's choice of a cord.

Washer wouldn't spray water, just heard a humming noise.

Removed the screws under the counter, retracted the leveling bolt jacks, turned off power to unit, turned off water supply to unit and made sure that all the water was out of the unit. Disconnect supply and drain lines. slide out unit from under counter and put protection over the door then lay it over onto the door. unplug the motor remove the screw that holds the motor in place, turn the motor counterclock wise, wiggle the motor in a side to side motion and it will come right out.(GLOVES ARE RECOMENDED FOR THIS OPERATION). Use cooking spray or olive oil on the O-ring. line up the arrow on the pump housing with the arrow on the pump motor and put the unit back together in the reverse order. Test the unit with a operation of a quick rinse to check of leaks. This is a very easy repair.

Went to part select and found the part. Watched the repair video. Ordered the part. Came 2 days later. Very fast service!! Started the repair but found the dw would not just slide out as in the video. Took bottom panel off and found copper supply tube was connected and coming up from the basement below. Disconnected the supply line and replaced both wheel assemblies. Slid dw back in. Then the fun started! Went to thread the compression nut onto the connection and it would not thread. After about 7 tries, it cross-threaded. Called my friendly plumber. After one hour, he fixed it and all was well. Plumber told me that about 1 out of 3 repairs result in cross threading. There is a lesson here. If it looks too simple, it probably is very difficult.

one of plastic clips that attach spring & cord to door had broken off. Only one side was still attached; thereby, door lost tension, when opened.

I replaced both brackets and cords. the hardest problem was attaching spring to frame housing of dishwasher since I didn't want to pull dw completely out of cabinet area because of water copper line connection and power connection. I had to use grip plyers to hold spring as I streached spring to connect to cable.

Loud Grinding Sound - Pump Motor and Impeller Unit

  • Customer: Paul from Woodstock, GA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set, Wrench (Adjustable)

The dishwasher made a loud grinding sound when it ran. We looked at new dishwashers and they're still basically the same, but the $$$ is so high. We looked at the reports PartSelect.com and after reading the reports, decided it was the pump motor/impeller unit and ordered it online. FIRST, read all the other installation stories. It will save you time. You will save unnecessary steps. In the end, it wasn't actually as bad as it sounded. So, here are the steps I took to install the new pump motor with impeller unit. ONE: turn off the water supply TWO: turn off the power (I had a dedicated circuit breaker just for the dishwasher)THREE: disconnect the water supply at the pipe(not the dishwasher) FOUR: Disconnect the drain hose at the drain(not the diswasher)FIVE: remove whatever screws are holding the unit inside the base cabinet SIX: pull out the diswasher(carefully watch the wires, hoses and insulation) SEVEN: tip the dishwasher forward (lay it on rags, watch for water)EIGHT: Disconnect the electrical supply plug to the pump (it's a plug-type connection, squeeze the edges to release)NINE: remove the one bolt holding the motor on the pump assembly and the heat sheild(you'll need a ratchet with extension) TEN: turn the pump motor counter-clockwise and pull it off. ELEVEN: align the arrows on the new motor of the pump and mounting assembly. TWELEVE: clean the o-ring on the pump and lubriate with drying agent THIRTEEN: place the motor on the pump assembly rotated counter clock-wise a bit past the bolt hole and press until it seats. FOURTEEN: turn the motor clock-wise to engage the locking mechanism and align the bolt hole. FIFTEEN: replace the bolt and heat shield. SIXTEEN:reconnect the power plug SEVENTEEN: tip-up the dishwasher, slide the unit back under the cabinet. EIGHTEEN: reconnect the drain, water, and power. NINETEEN: turn-on the water and restore the power TWENTY: test(start a wash cycle) the unit to be sure it doesn't leak. TWENTY: if all is good, replace screws holding the dishwsher in the cabinet(otherwise you will have to back-track to find your error - I didn't). And that's it! Now it's running smooth and silent, just as before. Good luck!

Door Balance Link Kit

First challenge was getting a model number match. The telephone parts ordering rep convinced me to get a ...SS6 replacement. Said his database did not show the ...SS7 installed in my home. As to how I did the repair, I looked at the video available as a part of ordering the replacement parts. The video seemed quite appropriate and accurate except that spring tension was under-stated in the video. In fact, it was made to look like there was no issue in reconnecting the tension springs. Not! Took some effort and a bit of wrestling in a difficult body position to reconnect the tension springs. On the other hand, all of the self-replacement task far beat paying an exorbitant house visit fee by an authorized repair person.
