Ordered one evening and it arrived in two days. It took a minute to understand how it was attached to the basket with three clips. Two on the sides and one in the middle. All need to be taken off and the one in the middle has another assembly that needs to be opened up to allow the old one to come out and the new one to go in. Perfect fit and the hardest part was taking it out of the wrapper.

Loud noise from motor

I unfortunatly removed the whole base assembly to replace this motor. I wasn't sure what the original cause was. After watching your video I would have followed it and it would have been easier. All went well with not leaks and now we can sleep with the dishwasher on. Thanks

Removed the dishwasher from under the counter, disconnected the copper water tubing, placed it upside down, removed the old pump and replaced with new. The only iffy situation is making sure the copper tubing doesn't kink when removing the dishwasher and putting it back into the cabinet. Very simple, my husband can fix anything. Your video was very helpful as well.

I was only able to get the dishwasher partially out from under the counter. I had to reconnect the springs using a big screw driver. I then attached the door portion of the cable to the door and pulled the spring back to connect it. It went OK. I found your video valuable because I knew what I was dealing with and was able to come up with a solution for not pulling the washer completely out

Bracket to hold the wheels on the rack adjuster broken

  • Customer: James from Farmington, UT
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

The task was easy, but make sure that you take the upper tray out of the dishwasher and do the work on a flat surface. The brackets holding the entire assembly require some force to separate, be careful not to pull too hard as they can break. As a guide, use the side that is not broken as a template. It is unfortunate that you must purchase the whole bracket assembly, but I don't believe that it is possible to repair only a portion of the bracket.

Door would not stay open unless completely in the full open position.

Door balance kit was very easy to repair. Washer was installed incorrectly with water service run through the units frame. Once this issue was addressed, ordering and installation was a piece of cake.

I noticed the top spinner in the top tray. It wouldn't stay when I tried to reattach it. I searched around the Internet using the model number of my dishwasher. I ordered the part which arrived in two days. I removed the top tray and gently pried the piece where the spinner attaches away, took the old pin out, snuck the new pin in there and snapped the spinner in. The problem was that the nipple on the pin was worn away. The spinner was fine but I didn't see an option to just buy the pin. The I st ructions I read said to dismantle the whole works, but I sneaked it in without doing any harm. I hope. Dishwasher works fine.

There are several interlocking parts for this assembly

It is a good thing the part was symetrical with the other side so I could use it as a reference. There were several parts that had to go together to reassemble the Rack Adjuster and i got a little frustrated a couple of times in getting the parts in the right place to snap in or to snap onto the wire basket. But it works and that is the important part.

Before receiving the parts did a dry run to make sure the parts were easily installed. When the parts arrived I was able to install the adjuster in less than 30 minutes.

plastic wheels on rack holder (left side) broken and rack kept falling

  • Customer: George from Calabasas, CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Since there was an exact type rack adjuster (good shape) on the other side - I followed how it was installed. Problem was that I had to remove a plastic cover and since there were no instructions along with the new part I had to figure out how do to it WITHOUT breaking the plastic tabs on it. The screwdriver helped. There were two slide holders that I had to remember which side was correct and where exactly they went - again used the other side to guide me. The end results is that I had to take apart what I had done twice as it was not exactly aligned due to snap on plastic tabs that were not aligned correctly.

Top spinner broke off

Pin for the top spinner broke off. Watched the video on the website and went to fix dishwasher. Found out that I only needed to remove baskets, cover bottom with a towel so screws didn't fall into unreachable areas, then removed one screw on the top. Removed broken pin and installed new spinner and pin. Less than five minutes from a woman who's never done this before. Felt like a pro!! Your easy to use website to find parts and repair video made it possible. Thanks a million!!!
