I saw a video on replacing heating element brass nut but thinking about replacing the grommet at same time. Is there a video on that replacement available for that job
For model number FDBB944CB0
Hi Leighton, Thank you for your inquiry. I am not showing a video listed with the grommet on our website, but a customer has left a comment as to how they have installed the part. "Removed lower trim covers (2 Phillips screws) disconnected power supply at breaker box. Removed wire from heating element, removed (broken) brass nut, unclipped heating element and removed. Removed flat washers and replaced with new grommets. Kind of tricky getting them in there. Also had to lube them with silicone to get the element back through. Installed new brass nuts and installed wire connectors. Reset breaker and started dishwasher to verify repair. No leaks, working just fine, reinstalled lower trim covers" I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

One question if this brass nut keeps breaking why keep using it. We paid 129.00 dollars to fix it but our repair man only had one nut both were broken. We replaced one and dishwasher is working fine no leaks how come we are replacing second nut ourselves

We do not manufacture any units, provide technical support, authorize substitutes, or fulfill warranty claims. Please make contact with your manufacturer directly. Hope this helps!

Water leaking under the dishwasher
I looked under and found that 2 brass nuts that secured the heater element through the base housing of the dishwasher has split down each side of the nut and no longer was tight enough to keep water from leaking around either end of the heater element. I powered down the dishwasher at the circuit breaker and then reached under the dishwasher and pulled away the 2 wires that were attached to each side of the heater element. I removed the two nuts and replaced them with the parts I ordered from partselect.com. I then put the appropriate wires back at the end of the heater element and ran the dishwasher to check for leaks. No leaks... it was fixed.

heater element burnt out (black spot)
Make sure power is off. Remove metal toe kick with fillips screw driver. Reach under dishwasher with 1/2" open
end wrench and completly unscrew brass nuts from element ends. Then open door and pull element ends straight up. Note: As you pull element ends up (inside washer) you are also forcing the element end wire connectors to come off underneath. The electricial connectors are very hard to get off any other way.

Water leak underneath dishwasher
Unplugged dishwasher, removed the 2 wires clipped to the heating element, removed both cracked nuts, replaced with new nuts from PartSelect, clipped on wires, plugged in and did a test cycle. Based upon service quote from Best Buy, I saved myself $125.00 for just the call out, not including parts and labor.

Dishwasher was leaking out of small gold nut
The nut was split down one side, so I first tried to sauder the nut back together. Saudering never goes well for me anyway, but I couldn't get a good enough seal around the nut to make it fit tightly. Then I had to cut off the clear plastic shield to get down in there, just before realizing you could just pull the white wire firmly and it would come loose from the nut. All I had to do then was unscrew the original nut, and screw on the new nut. Then, luckily I had mistakenly ordered an extra clear plastic shield and could replace the one I had previously cut. Dishwasher now runs like a charm!

Dishwasher was leaking
I turned the power off at the circuit breaker. I then took the access panel off the dishwasher at the bottom. I pulled the wire off the connector. I used a plied to remove the broken washer and replaced with new part. I put everything back in reverse order and ran the dishwasher. I than checked for leaks over two days while the machine was running and everything was fine. Thank you Parts Select for saving me $500!

Dishwasher wasn't cleaning properly
I just did the repair just like the video suggests to fix it. I disconnected the power cord, shut off and took apart the water inlet line, and drain line. Unscrewed the top of the washer from the cabinet and pulled out the dishwasher. Tilted the washer to better get to the bottom and took off the connecting wires (red and white.) Unscrewed the brass nuts holding the heating element and removed the element from the machine. Took out the bottom sprayer arm. Replaced the element, replaced the brass nuts and connected the wires back up. Put the sprayer arm back in. Pushed the machine back into place and re-secured the top to the cabinet. Hooked all water, drain, and power lines back up and all was good again.

Dishwasher was leaking caused by a cracked brass nut attaching to the heating element.
First I removed the two screws that hold the dishwasher in place, I pulled out the dishwasher and on the bottom right located the leak. The two brass nuts that hold the heating element in place. The wires had been rusted to the element so I cut the wires (and later spliced them back together) and unscrewed the brass nuts. I ordered the part after finding them very easily on partselect.com and 2 days later screwed them back on to the dishwasher. Spliced the wires back together and put the dishwasher back in place.

Easy Fix.
