Soap dispenser on the dishwasher broke

  • Customer: James from Kalispell, MT
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Simply unscrewed the two short screws on each side toward the bottom hinge of the door. Then the metal outside panel just slides out--easy! DO NOT unscrew the other screws toward the top that hold the opening handle on. Found the 2 electrical connections, undid them, then unscrewed the six little screws. Took out broken dispenser, replaced it, then replaced outside door panel. Very easy. Even a cave man like me can do it.

Dishwaser wouldn't fill completely.

Replaced the fill valve. Turns out that there is a very fine screen in the inlet that was almost totally clogged. Replacing the fill valve fixed the problem, and now the dishwasher works better than ever. Plus, I cleaned the screen, I had to disassemble the valve to do it, and now have a spare part.

Handle was broken

  • Customer: Wendy from Hamden, CT
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

First i removed the6 screw inside the dishwasher that hold the top outside plate, I then removed the 4 wires attached to the handle assembly( make sure you turn the power off, I didn't and made my flat tip screwdriver a pickle fork) next I removed the two star head screwed holding the assembly to the door. I took out the handle assembly and installed new one in the reverse order. I had to reset circuit breaker in the panel in the basement due to my earlier electrical mishap. Even though the dishwasher is hard wired and you can't unplug it, there should be a switch on the wall to turn the power off. Overall it was a simple change of parts and the new part fit perfectly.

I used a flat screw driver to push out the bottom gasket from it's seat on the lower left corner of the door. I pulled the remainder of the gasket out by hand. I aligned the new gasket and pushed and pressed into place with my fingers into the gasket's seat.

  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Wrench set

Went online, searched my dishwasher name and model. Found "PartSelect" site, then typed in "Water Inlet" in the search area, (for specific part). My part, along with several awesome illustrations from all kinds of angles appeared like BAM!!! There it was, the very part which I held in my hand for comparison. Wow, was I thrilled! I ordered the part in just a couple of minutes, as I used my PayPal account. Shipping took 4 days. Regarding the repair, just kill the power to the dishwasher, remove the service panel (bottom), unscrew the two screws that secure the top of the dishwasher to the under side of the counter (anti-tip prevention) slide the dishwasher out from under the counter, loosen the nut to the valve and pull the service line (copper tube) out from the valve. Then unscrew the valve from the dishwasher chassis. Pop the wire from the valve and and secondary rubber hose, now the valve is free. Just install in reverse order.

After browsing the site and seeing that the problem could have been the thermostat, I uninstalled my dishwasher and found the burned lead like another poster had mentioned. It took roughly 15 minutes to uninstall the dishwasher, remove the bad thermostat, install the new thermostat, replaced the crimped lug and reinstall dishwasher.

Removed front control panel, removed old switch, and replaced with new switch. New switch was not identical, but similar. Gasket was not leaking so I saved it for future need. Instructions were included for gasket, but not for switch. Luckily I did not electrocute my self. :)Switch works fine, and dishwashers works fine.

Dishes piled up 'till they hit the floor,and the little wife could take no more, soapy hands that dripped and ran, I said "Hey I'll fix it if I can." She said "Hey You're my kinda' man.", Waited a few days for it to arrive, Fed Ex dropped it in my drive, Not a knock or a sound, to let me know my kit was around! Grabbed my tools, tripped over the cat, she ran off in a second flat and I still don't know she's at! Cut off the power which took a few, I then knew just what to do, Unscrewed the panel and dropped it down, my little wife watched me with a frown, removed the latch in about three,and then the cat was helping me, she knocked a screw across the floor, put her in a room and locked the door, working quickly I installed the new...latch that is...I thought you knew, Turned on the power and that was that...my wife said, "You are one smart cat!" Now her hands are smooth as silk, Now a clean glass for my milk. Thanks to Parts Select the sink is clean, and so is our dishwashing machine! Easiest task I've ever done and now I am number one!

I tried 2 parts: a tub gasket and a bottom gasket. Unfortunately neither worked and it looks like I'll be buying a new dishwasher. However, partselect's web site and install videos were awesome, and took all the unknowns/hesitation out of wanting to try to fix it myself. Thanks!!!

I had to disconnect the water supply line to allow the unit to slide out far enough to tilt back to get access to pump and motor after which I was able to replace it and reinstall

Leakikng around the motor

Removed dishwasher from under the counter. Tipped it onto the door to access the motor. The Bracket requires the use of a torque bit in the screwdriver. Removed the bradket and pulled out the motor. Replaced the O-rings and put on a new bracket. Reinstalled the dishwasher, but it still is leaking. Removed dishwasher and motor again. After a more thorough inspection, I noticed that the motor itself is leading through a weep hole inside the casing. The hole is located between the bracket and the dishwasher housing so it makes it appear to leak around the O-ring. Be sure to check the weep hole in the motor itself.

Removed the old seal, which was a little stuck because of residue buildup from hard water. I used a pair of needle-nose pliers to get a grip on the old seal, then slid my finger underneath to separate the rest of the seal. Once removed, cleaned up the area and slid in the new seal which slotted in quite easily.
