Replaced both "tracks" and the "wheels" .
Now it's like new....!!
My wife is so happy

Removed the track end caps from the tracks so I could pull out the tracks.
Removed the upper wash rack that holds dishes.
Only by removing this rack can the wheels be replaced, if I tried to replace them with the rack attached to the dishwasher I had to bend forward painfully.
Replace the old rales with new ones.
Attach new wheels to the upper rack in such a way as to allow the rack to roll inside the new rales.
Replace the end caps.
Hope it lasts another 10 years

Dishwasher leaking water

  • Customer: Evan from Hudson, MA
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Install was very easy. Used hands, pliers to pull out old gaskets. Wiped down old dirt in track. Started from (top) middle of door frame and used some soap with warm water to insert new gaskets. That's it! Kept old plastic brackets in place because it was too difficult to remove door springs. Old door seal and lower door seal were badly worn (gummy and falling apart) - Thought that was the issue with the water leaking. Nope, I was wrong. Looks like the tub seal, and the plastic bearing that is under the spray arm. Going to buy new instead of diving in the money pit. 10 years old, motor corroded from water over the years.

Soap scum on glasses

Took off the front cover and scraped out soap deposits - probably consequent to wash water not being hot enough. Replaced the lower seal - used some automotive weatherstrip seal to cement it in place. Loosened the door per instruction sheet and replaced the water deflectors on each lower corner. Probably took me longer since I'm 81 years old and don't get up and down as well as I once did. Insulated the hot water tube so wash water is hotter than before. Works pretty good.

I unscrewed the old water inlet valve from the frame of the dishwasher so that I could manuever my hand around to the backside where the rubber hose was connected. That was the easy part. I then had trouble holding the old valve while trying to unscrew the hot water copper tubing so I screwed it back on the frame. My dishwasher is close to 18 years old and I think that was part of the problem. After soaking in WD40, I finally got the valve out. Then I had to remove the "L" shaped connector to put on the new valve. Everything went back together a lot faster and it's like I have a new dishwasher again. By the way, I am a 53 year old female so that may be why it took me so long.

The spray arm snapped off from the mounting bracket.

First of all, we were very impressed with the ease of finding the parts, the ordering, and the velocity in which the parts were shipped. We received them the next day. I had to remove one of the screws from the old kit, since the new one only came with one. I looked at the diagram on the website of the assembly, and also remembered what the assembly looked like before I took it apart. The first time I tried it, I could not get the spray arm to spin without hitting the dishwasher rack. Since I had ran out of time, I had to wait until the next day. Once I started, I realized that I had the mounting bracket on backwards. Once I turned it around, I tightened the screws, and it was done within 5 minutes.

Water leaking out side where water enters

AIR INLET GASKET Had to pull dishwaher out, using instructions sent with part, turn it 1/4 turn counter clockwise, tap with screwdriver and hammer and it came right off. Put the new one on. It was kinda hard to get it to turn the last little bit, I had to use a screw driver and hammer to make it twist that last little bit.

Dishwasher often didn't fill with water.

  • Customer: Lorrin from Longview, WA
  • Difficulty: Very Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours

Remove power, either unplug the unit or locate and turn off the circuit breaker. There is power under the dishwasher even if it is not running.

Use the nut driver to remove both lower panels to gain access to the bottom of the dishwasher.

I suspected the overflow switch and used the ohm meter to discover the resistance of the switch, with no water in the washer, measured anywhere from a couple of ohms to 40 ohms or more and of course it should be less than one ohm.

There was no sign of any leakage or other problem so I wanted to keep the job simple and replace only the actual micro switch.

Problem! The micro switch is mounted on the back side of the float stem kit and visibility is severely limited. About all you can see are the switch terminals and the head of the phillips screw that holds the microswitch on the rest of the float stem kit.. You'll definitely need a small mirror.

I first pulled the wires from the microswitch terminals. Then I used a small phillips screw driver to remove the screw holding the switch and the first thing that happened is the small white float lever fell out. (I didn't know that it was even there because of the poor visibility. Ugly surprise!)

I spent 1/2 hour or more studying how the lever went in and found that the cirular end of the lever fits into a circular depression in the assembly body and was HELD IN BY THE SWITCH. (Now it's really getting ugly!)

The problem then is how to get the lever back in place and have it stay there while placing the micro switch back in place. There just isn't any easy way to do that. If only the switch and lever were one piece it would have been so simple.

Aha!

I placed and aligned both the lever and the microswitch on the float assembly body that I received. Using a couple of small pieces of electricians tape I taped the microswitch and lever together so they were one piece. Then I carefully (very carefully) removed the switch/lever
"assembly" that I made and eased it into position onto back side of the dishwasher float stem assembly body. When the switch is almost in place there is just barely room to get the tip of your finger in there and seat the rounded end of the lever into the depression. After seating the lever, carefully replace and tighten the phillips screw holding the switch in place. Then remove the electricians tape.

Replace the wires on the micro switch terminals, replace the front panels, put your tools away, and by golly, you're done.

This repair is not for the faint-hearted nor for those with fat fingers or who tend to be klutsy. It took me three or four attemps and a couple of hours to get the microswitch and float lever into place. But I think it was worth it as I didn't have to remove the dishwasher, play with water lines, or remove the full float assembly thus avoiding creating other problems that might likely result in water leaks and additional repairs..

If you decide to try this repair, good luck. It can be done but it is tough.

The dishrack fits perfectly in our 10 yr old KitchenAid dishwasher. Took a little while installing the wheels and 3 rows of tines that were not in place as instruction sheet was a bit vague. Our old rack had had several tines rust off, and recently learned that we should be using liquid detergent as the powder is like a sandblasting agent over time. Also we didn't get a knife/fork basket with the rack; however, old one fit okay.

Water Leak At Water Inlet To Tub

  • Customer: William from Austin, TX
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Contrary to info on your website, the bezel is removed by turning it counterclockwise. This misinformation wasted a lot of time. The bezel is difficult to turn. I used a home-built wrench: drive two screws spaced 3 inches apart through a stick of wood, projecting 5/8 inch. Engage the screws in the slot in the bezel and in the grill, and turn ccw. I cleaned the deposits from the surface where the gasket seals with white vinegar. New gasket and bezel fixed the problem.

I first removed the old part. when i removed the old part i could not get the conector piece off when i when to get a new one they told me i should replace the copper tubing with the more flexable tubing because the copper tubing can kink up and possibly break from the kinking. so i screwed the inlet valve on i put teflon tape on the all the threads of the conector piece screwed it into the new inlet valve with and adjustable wrench then i conected the new tubing, and tightend it down with the wrench i slowly turned the water back on to cheak for leaks. When i saw there were no leaks i turned the water on the rest of the way pushed the dishwasher back in and screwed it into place an i was done.
