Common to KitchenAid dishwashers, door balance failure

  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Wrench (Adjustable)

PartSelect video on YouTube is spot on. Thanks to post-dishwasher ceramic tile, the only difficult part was moving the dishwasher out to access the balance kit. Installation of the balance kit takes only a few minutes. Springs were not required.

I replaced the silverware tray in less than a minute. That seemed to please my wife. I told her that this was her Valentine's present. That did not seem to please her. One positive and one negative respone--- not too bad. However, it looks like I will need to find a more pleasing Valentine's present. I tried. Thanks for the prompt and accurate replacement part.

I replaced the old one with a new 75.00 part with no problem. However, when I looked at the old part I saw that the problem was simply the spring that opens the door was sprung. It just needed to be adjusted. That took a little more time to fix than the replacement job but had I known this before, I could have saved myself some cash. BTW that spring is attached to the hinge on the door. IMHO it needs to be a little beefier so as not to fail.

Slid the dishwasher out, removed the old hinge and replaced it with the upgraded kit. Appliance repairman wanted $168.00 to do the job and I repaired it for $30.00. Thanks for the great service

Actually your video lays it out very well. Went exactly as it shows and was very easy. I did not have to pull it out to the point I had to disconnect any water or electrical connections. Worked great! Replaced both sides as the new rollers turn and the old ones did not causing a horrible squeak when the door was opened or closed. Now, no noise at all.

I'm a 74 yr old women and have always tried to do my own repairs. With the web it was so easy to locate the problem and order the part. The online repair demo video was so easy to follow. Really proud of myself. "I still got it".

Silverware basket broken

  • Customer: Francis from Ormond Beach, FL
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

There is nothing easier than this. A real pleasure when the parts come from Paarts Select. One point to mention is that on my particular model there is a removable handle that needs to be replaced on the new unit. 1} remove handle from old basket and discard basket. 2} drill holes in the new basket using the handle as a template. 3} install the handle and screw it in place. Perhaps not all models have this ergonomic handle and they don't need to be replaced.

Leaky valve

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Socket set, Wrench (Adjustable)

Had to find the leak first, which was a big process. Once found, it was a matter of removing the part, looking it up om partselect.com , ordering it and reinstalling which wasn't too difficult. The installation took about 45 minutes. I was psyched to find a website that could simplify this repair without calling a mechanic or plumber!

Broken links on doorbalance.

The PartSelect video was quite good. I viewed it before ordering to determine if I was confident that I could do the repair and reviewed it again immediately before performing the repair as a refresher. Here are a few extra items of information: (1) There was plenty of extra length in the drain hose and electrical connections, so I only needed to disconnect the hot water supply before pulling the dishwasher out from under the cabinet. (Be sure the circuit-breaker is opened and test for dead on the dishwasher electrical supply.) This simplified later re-connecting and tightening and dealing with drips. (2)When I tipped the dishwasher onto its side, a bit more water than expected drained from the sump out onto the kitchen floor. I put 2 2x4 blocks under the dishwasher side to prevent the insulation from getting wet. (3)When loosening the 3/8" retention bolt and shield, I needed to use a flexible screwdriver shaft and a nutdriver socket on the end of the flexible shaft, since a brace under the dishwasher prevented a straight-on approach. (4)The guidance on the video showing the amount of wiggling to remove the old impeller/motor was valuable, since it provided confirmation that some repetition of the twist and pull motion was needed/expected. (5)Finally, it can be helpful to carefully track which is the old motor and which is the new, since if one inadvertently places them next to each other, the only identifiable difference may be a small amount of water in the old impeller assembly. (One would hate to inadvertently re-install the old motor.) Re-assembly was easy and straightforward.
