Replaced broken latch

Easy fix, although this was the third time I had to replace the handle. Unscrewed the door panel, unharnessed the 2 switches, hooked up the new switches and handle, re-installed the door panel. Make sure to unplug the dishasher first, as the switches are "hot".

I am 73 years old and I am the mom or female of this household. It was very simple to install and worked perfectly on completion.

Also, the lady that helped me with ordering the part was very good. Great customer service.

left side place wheel and housing of middle rack broke

  • Customer: Kathryn from Chestertown, MD
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Wrench set
  • 0 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
checked video and comments of previous customers. Had to buy torque wrench so although we have lots of tools we did not have this type of wrench. No indication of it needed when we ordered part, no written instructions with part. What do people do who are not able to have a video accessible to them as they install? Without video we would have had much more difficulty.

Had tried to order replacement wheel...seems odd that since it is reported that the wheels (plastic) have frequent breakage issues that you cannot just replace it instead of a $50 larger part. It is hard to find repair people in our rural area so glad to have online access. Good service from this company, prompt arrival etc.

Dishwasher Handle Broke off

  • Customer: Ronald from Burleson, TX
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

Installing the handle assembly was very simple. Only problem I had, the plastic clips that are part of the control panel were broken off also. (Thanks to a 2 year old Granddaughter) Rather than buy a complete control panel for $150, I used epoxy to attach the lower tabs of the handle assembly. Let it sit for 24 hours, install the door panel, which also used the upper mounting screws, and it was fixed. I ordered the part around 11:30am in Texas on a Thursday, and had the part in hand on Friday. Very impressed by the shipping time. Will use you over and over again. . . Ron Myers

The handle would no longer work.

The handle comes with the switch assembly. I took out the screws holding the back side of the door (white side , inside the of door). The switch assembly comes loose as two of the screws in the door panel hold the switch panel in place. There are two plastic hoders at the bottom of the switch attached to the inside of thr front panel. On mine these were broken off, but not really needed. You might have to get the old switch assembly loose from yours. I then pulled the switch wiring from the old switch. Note what goes to which side and in what direction they plug in and then hook up the new switch assembly. You may need to get the new switch bottom lugs back into the two brackets (mine were broken off and I ignored them) and then I located the two top holes in the switch assembly with the two holes in the top of the door and placed the back door panel back in place and put all the screws back in the door panel. That was it.

Broken latch handle

1. Shut off the power. (important!)
2. Removed 9 screws from the door panel. Left the bottom 2 in place. There is enough room to access the latch assembly.
3. Removed the broken assembly. The microswitch connections were easily removed by inserting the tip of a large scewdriver and carefully rotating it to ease the switch off the prongs.
4.Installed the new latch assembly and replaced all the 9 screws.
5. Closed the door and reapplied the power. Success!
6.Time taken was 10 minutes.

The instructions from others with a similar problem were invaluable.

I watched the video repair program and it was just that simple. What was the most amazing is from the time we called in the order until we got the parts and made the installation was less than 72 hours. We simply cannot believe how easy this was. Thanks ever so much!!!!

also had to replace heating element. Had to remove dishwasher from under counter to get to heat element. Initial installer used long braided steel water line and plug in electrical connection so removal was easy (10 min). Pulled (2) electrical terminals from heat element and (2) plastic retaining nuts put in new element w/matching nuts,element came w/seals. Check for leaks before installing back under counter. Then removed torx screws holding impeller cover and accumulator/filter removed old put in new after good cleaning of course. All is well.

Open door. Remove 11 screws around the perimeter of the inner door panel. Separate inner door panel from outer panel. Pull off 2 electrical connections from switches on the door/latch assembly(remember their respective locations). Remove broken handle/latch assembly. Insert new assembly. Reconnect electrical connections. Being mindful of the wires between the panels so they are not pinched, mate the inner and outer panels together and insert screws. Give it a test run.
