Dishwasher leaking from bottom left side of door

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.

Unscrew machine fro counter top, pull it out of cabinetry, remove old pulley & bollard blocks, install new ones, hook new string to spring, run through pulleys. Then, the only trick: I used one of the old broken cords to extend the spring so i had slack in the new line so it could be hooked in place. Hook the broken cord on the spring after connecting the new cord, then pull on it with one hand while positioning the new cord with the other. A major unexpected bonus of doing this repair was that that the design of the pulley block had been improved so now each block uses two pulleys instead of a pulley and a bollard. This makes opening and closing the door nearly silent, where as before there was some friction where the string rubbed over the bollard and that set up a resonance in the spring that was quite loud.

dishes would not dry

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.

These guys were GREAT!!! Called and the individual immediately was able to identify the part number and indicated they had the kit in stock. The parts were shipped that day and arrived three days later. Didn't take long to put the new arm on and was up and running. I'll definitely use them in the future.

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.

Handle broke, wouldn't latch, can't run dishwasher

  • Customer: Eric from Dresher, PA

Important: To make sure you've turned off the correct circuit breaker, press the Cancel button on the dishwasher. The green light will go on (even if it's not latched) until you cut the power. See Steve's video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oLZ-7Py_hFQ . This model is similar but not identical: (1) You only have to remove the top 6 Torx screws to remove the control panel. No need to remove the door. (2) There's one, not two, switches in the latch assembly. There's no need to remove the wires from the switch; just unscrew the switch with a small nutdriver... or needlenose pliers like I did. I did unplug the wires from the control panel located to the right of the latch assembly. Remove the latch assembly, remove the spring (needlenose pliers again), and replace the handle. Reassemble everything in reverse order and you're done. As another commenter recommended, I purchased and installed a second spring to balance the pressure on the handle on the other side of the existing spring. You'll see another hook in the *center* of the latch assembly that would appear to be for another spring, but it works fine without using it.

Dishes were not getting clean or intermittently getting clean

Well after trouble shooting several components , the fill valve, the check valve , the pump motor all it turned out to be is the supply line to the dishwasher. I had installed one of those lines with an anti flood check valve in the line. Thinking it was a smart idea so if I were not home it would keep from flooding my basement etc. even when you remove the line and run it into a bucket you still get flow. But unknown to myself a majority of your appliances do not work well with these lines because when the solenoid opens it causes a surge and the check valve tries to restrict the flow. After soapy of these surges the valve sticks . When I replaced the line with a standard supply line it solved the problem. So for about $15.00 you could save yourself a lot of headaches and money by replacing that first. I'm not saying it will be the solution but start there first even if your getting water flow through that line. By the way the manufacturer of those lines at least the one I bought less than 5 montages ago do not mention that on their package and by the time you come to that conclusion you may have spent a lot of money trying to fix your machine. I had three techs that couldn't figure it out. Also the machine I have is a kitchen aid but its a common problem on a lot of brands including washing machines for clothes.

disassembled the touch pad by removing the screws holding it in place, carefully removing the latch, replacing the wire connectors one at a time on the control module, remounting the control module, and re-attaching the touch pad. Considered it relatively easy procedure. Time element of 15-20 minutes from start to finish. Problem solved!!

I went according to the video. even though it would have been easier to just plug in the new fuse, I cut and replaced the wire clips, as I figured there was some resistance in the replacement wire to keep the fuse from blowing again.
