Small Constant Drip (Leak)

  • Customer: Richard from Upperco, MD
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Wrench (Adjustable)

I pulled out the dishwasher removed the two heating element insulated wires and removed both threaded brass nuts and replaced them both. Problem solved. Luckily I have a local parts and repair store with a repairman that knows every part of every appliance ever made (no kidding, I have yet to stump him with a part or question). He did not have the parts, told me to go to partselect.com order two nuts, replace them both at the same time, and fix it myself because its an easy repair and not worth paying hundreds of dollars, if you can use a wrench. He was right, and partselect.com had the right parts, at the right price, easy to find and order, and I can impress the wife with my repair skills. Thanks again!

So easy it shouldn't even count as a repair, really. The dishwasher, there when I bought the place, had a lower rack that wouldn't roll out as it should. That's because there were no wheels on the left side.

The rack lifts out easily. These wheels snap on to small protrusions from the wire rack.

The parts arrived 20 hours after ordering -great service & the parts were just like like the removed parts only new. The old door gasket was pulled from its groove & and the new gasket was installed witout using tools. No more leaking water.The door spring installation wesa bit more difficult. The front bottom was removed with a nut drive, the broken springs were fished out, new springs were pull onto the arms and the cover put back in place. Not a bad job for a crippled, one-eyed 82 year old man.

Door spring was broken

  • Customer: Juergen from Shelbyville, IN
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set
  • 0 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
I removed the front panel below the door. There are 4 Hex screws, two at the top (accessible with the door open) and two at the bottom. After removing the screws, the panel came off, and I could reach inside to replace the springs. I found it easier to use a socket wrench than a screw driver.
Easily done. Anybody can do it. It took longer to clean up the panel than to do the actual repair.

There were no wheels on the bottom rack of our dishwasher.
