The part was correct and I no problems installing it. Just make sure you tighten the brass elbow tight.

Original chopper assembly had broken, was rattling and debris was blocking pump to upper spray arms.

Repair was straight forward. The video description was excellent. Pay attention to where the chopper assembly sits in the cavity, there is a second location closer to the impeller, but this is not where it goes.

Washer Cut Off Mid Cycle, Had Power, No Lights On Control Panel, Would Not Restart

I removed about 8 screws from the upper back of the door assemply to expose the control panel board. From there you could see the thermal overload (fuse. ) I followed the enclosed instructions and was done in about 20 minute. Turned the breaker back on and it immediately lit up and is operating.

the tine on the end rusted out and wouldn't stand up anymore

Pulled two clips off the rack and removed the tine row. Put the new tine row in, had to put both clips on at the same time. Very glad that the clips we had were not bad, because if they were, we would have had to order new clips too. They might consider including that with the tine row. Otherwise a fairly simple job.

Faulty water inlet valve

First reviewed the online video which described the repair perfectly which made the job much easier. I disconnected the water and electric and the removed the two screws holding the valve in place. I replaced it with the new valve reconnected water and power and it works like new!

Door fell down too easily

  • Customer: Mike from Chattanooga, TN
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

This repair was very easy to do. I was able to attach cord anchor to springs without pulling the dishwasher out more than about 10 inches. No disconnect of hoses were required since I had enough slack in the water line. Replacement of the Door Balance Link (big plastic part) was done with only 10 inches of the side exposed. Only one link was broken but the the other side made a groaning noise so I replaced both sides.

Door Balance issue- cable snapped

  • Customer: Martin from Great NEck, NY
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Follow the online instructions- the only piece of information that was missing is how to deal with the tension in the line when you connect everything. I used a screwdriver for leverage and got things into place- BUT, I got the impression that this could be dangerous. Be careful. Otherwise, easy as you can imagine- also be careful pulling the dishwasher out from under your cabinet- you don't want to inadvertently disconnect something.

Nylon rope broke on one of the door balancers causing the door to drop quickly when opened

The repair went smoothly. I watched the repair video on this site which made the job much easier. The repair kit comes with 2 new balancers, so I replaced both of them while I had the dishwasher out from under the counter. Great experience using the PartSelect website. From locating the replacement parts, ordering, shipping and repair.

Thought it was the control panel. Searched online, found you. Learned it was Bi-Metal Fuse. Received part in 2 days. Replaced in ten minutes. Wife is thrilled and I'm happy I didn't have to pay a service guy $150+ to knock on my door, plus parts and labor! WIN! Telling all my friends about this site! Keep it up!!

pulled the dishwasher out, we found that the door balance link had broken, then ordered the link kit, which arrived the next day. replaced the spring and links, very easy to do after watching the how to video. I do reccomend ordering both springs and link kit together. we are very pleased with the results, the door works perfectly.

These directions are for Whirlpool dishwasher model # DU1055XTVB8. The steps below might be slightly different if you have a different model dishwasher.

1. Turn the electrical power off.

2. Remove both the lower and upper racks from inside the dishwasher. To remove the top one, it is necessary to remove the plastic stops at the end of each track. Push in on the tab on each of these stops and lift them up to remove. The lower rack has no stops and just slides out.

3. Put a towel on the bottom of the dishwasher (to catch any parts that might fall).

4. Remove the Philips screw from the top of the feed tube (the plastic part onto which the spinner attaches).

5. Pull down slightly on the feed tube and remove the plastic fastener (which holds the spinner in place) from the top of the feed tube.

6. Insert a new plastic fastener (with its head up) into the hole of the feed tube. Position the spinner under the feed tube and then snap the spinner and new plastic fastener together.

7. Reinstall the Philips screw into the top of the feed tube.

8. Remove the towel and put the racks back inside the dishwasher.

9. Turn electrical power back on.

Under Counter Anti-Tip Brackets Broke

I put this unit in about 3 years ago and the brackets broke at the crease and the dishwasher fell forward. Found the right bracket and when it arrived looked a match. Checked link to video showing how to properly install the brackets. The original manufacturer never stated that the tab that goes through the frame is supposed to be bent 90 degrees to prevent the bracket from coming out. Thank you PartSelect for that video because I would probably end up ordering brackets again in a few years.
