Replaced 2 wheels, one of which was lost, the other of which had gotten partially melted by the heating coil after it had fallen off. Replaced all 8 of the axles. The problem was with the old method of attaching the axles to the dishwasher. They were attached on the side, so they could fall off in one direction. The new axles flank the post and can not come off in a sideways direction. Lower rack now rolls in and out securely. No more having the rack suddenly fall when a wheel comes off. Don't hesitate to effect this repair yourself.

Poor cleaning. Spray arms clogged.

  • Customer: TODD from WILMINGTON, OH
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

Recommendations: Clean the calcium and detergent deposits out of the sump area before installing the spray arms. Otherwise they will get clogged like the old ones. I ended up running a couple of cycles with a half cup of CLR (dishwasher empty) to dissolve the remaining deposits.

Soap door would not stay closed

Removed the holding screws around the edges; removed and replaced the soap container; reconnected the electrical leads, and done... Very simple fix. But it does get a little tricky since the door is spring loaded. NOTE: THERE ARE SCREWS AT THE BOTTOM THAT IS NOT OBVIOUS.

Just took old ones off and replaced with new one. Snapped right in. Replacements were heavier and better made look like they will last much longer.

Detergent dispenser latch was broken

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

I was offered a free dishwasher for the taking. The soap dispenser latch was broken. I ordered the part, it arrived two days later by standard delivery. The door cover has to be opened and seperated. The difficulty is that the door will not stay down or up without assistance. Once open, the dispenser is replaced by removing 6 screws from within the door compartment (between the door front cover and inside door wall. Two electrical leads must be removed and reconected to the new part. Removing them is problematic, since one connecter partially chipped off using pliers to gain a grip. After inserting the new part the 6 screws are installed from behind the part and the leads reconnected. There are two ribbon connectors for the control panel and display. They did not come loose so I left them connected, which made it awkward to manipulate the various parts with the door split open. Putting the ribbons in proper place was easy if careful. Securing the outside and inside halves of the door completes the repair. I found instructions on google. This was tricky but easy, as the door parts were often trying to move out of an accessible position for working. Otherwise it was one of the easiest things I have done. It would be easier with two people, and I had only one good arem to work with due to shoulder surgery, but it was successful. The dishwasher works fine, and the price was right at $45.00 in parts plus shipping for a top of the line model.

Removed 8 screws from inside door cover. Opened the door and pulled off two wires from the detergent rinse dispenser with a pair of pliers and removed screws that held the dispenser in place. Removed the dispenser, placed new part in place and put screws back in and put wires back onto the dispenser. Closed cover and screwed back down. Easiest thing I've ever done.

The lower took 2s. There is nothing to do. The upper rack needed a bit more work as some parts needed to be removed from the old rack and be mounted on the new one. Overall, very easy to do
