Without knowing the name or model number of the part I needed, I was able to figure out the correct part by your online description and pictures. I was somewhat apprehensive when the part came because it was a different design than what came with my old dishwasher. The funnel end and tube are now one piece which I now realize is better. I watched an online video on how to install the part and read the instructions. The parts would only fit one way, this great, you can't install it wrong.

Both door springs broken

  • Customer: Jane from Dunwoody, GA
  • Difficulty: Very Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I followed the instructions in your video. BUT I could not pull the dishwasher out in order to easily access the spring area due to two layers of tile flooring. It would have taken about 15 minutes if there had been easy access but I had to lie on the floor and try to reach under everything to get out the old springs and then to fish the new springs around to get back in place. So it ended up taking about 2 hours of aggravation to finally accomplish the task-but I DID IT!!! Signed, Determined 62 YO woman

Geting the Fan off

  • Customer: Blacktop Enterprise Freight from Arlington, TX
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I used a socket to hold the motor front pulley and then I tried with a Vice Grip to hold the square part of the fan to breake it loos, but the vice grip only sliped and rounded the square part, so I had turn the fan by hand to get it loos. After that it went good. I also changed the dum ring and bearing kit. Now it runs like new again.

Water leaking into empty dishwasher.

  • Customer: Albert from High Point, NC
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers

After emptying the dishwasher the bottom had no water in it. A few hours later there was water in bottom. This told me the inlet valve was leaking. I took the bottom kick plate panels off. Directly in front on left side was the water inlet valve. Remove mounting screw, disconnect electrical connection, the water feed and discharge hose and remove valve. Install new valve. 100% DONE! Reinstall front panels after checking for leaks. At 71 years of age my typical 20 minute job actually took less time.

removed the old Middle spray arm. Note how it comes out. Assembled new sprat arm. I had to think a little at this point. Note how the old one looks and is assembled copy what you took out. The design has changed to eliminate the hose that rotted and is now one piece of plastic. Install new assembly. check for alignment with water outlet in back of washer tub. Have at it.

I followed the video installation instructions for the 2 parts I ordered. As described,the repair was easy. I am so grateful--- I thought we would have to trash the dishwasher because a service call would not have been worth it. Once I found your site I decided to try the replacements and the problem was solved. The videos are very helpful, and for a repair novice like myself, indispensable. Thanks so much. The delivery was very quick as well. Would definitely recommend to others.

Funny noise when running, poor cleaning results

  • Customer: Michael from Bradford, MA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers, Wrench (Adjustable)
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I followed the video directions on PartSelect which were GREAT! Only challenge I had was removing both impellers. The impellers both had cracked where they slid onto the motor shaft, and as a result would no longer rotate. Just holding the upper impeller still with the adjustable wrench while trying to remove the inner screw didn't work, as the shaft was now spun around inside the impeller. Had to break both impellers using a hammer and chisel to get them off the shaft. Once done, I could grip the shaft with pliers and remove the impeller mounting screw from the motor shaft. Then I sponged up any water, and vacuumed out the small bits of metal and plastic from the drain area. After removing all the parts and cleaning up, everything else went back together just fine! Again -- GREAT VIDEO INSTRUCTIONS!
