Need to remove decorative door panel


There are two main ways to remove it.
  • There should be screws on metal trim the side and or bottom of the dishwasher door. Take those out and it should come right off.
Or
  • There are screws on the back of the door screwed in to the front of the door. Remove the screws and it should come off.

No instructions came with the dishwasher and i dont know where the water line goes i cant find it


The water line hooks up underneath the dishwasher, it connects to a water valve, usually blue in color. You'll need to make sure the water line is slid underneath the dishwasher, and then make sure the bottom kick-plate is removed from the dishwasher, to do this.

Turn the machine on it makes all the right noises but there doesn't seem to be any water going into the machine. the hose that fills it is ok and water is coming through it . i just dont know where its...


Your inlet valve has a screen on it.This is probaly clogged, it does happen. At the bottom of your dishwasher ther will be 2 - 4 screws holding the front panels on. UNPLUG FIRST! Remove the panel/s. TURN OFF WATER TO DISHWASHER! you Will have a copper line going into the valve (usually blue w/a 2wire connector and a water supply) and always at the front on either the left or right side. Disconnect the copper water supply line and check the filter.screen. If the bottom inside of the dishwasher is full of water either you need to remove the spray bars and clean them out or you need to replace the impeller in the center under the spray bars. also very easy.

Connect water line and drain line


The supply line connects to the brass screw in fitting on the bottom left corner under the washer.

When you buy a dishwasher supply line kit, it will come with any adaptors needed. Unless you are using the steel braided line you will need to use teflon tape on the threads of the line. If you are using the SS line kit, you will only need tape on the adaptor.

Here is a pick of the line and the adaptor.

The drain line is attached with a typical hose clamp like this.

It is attached to the stub out on the garbage disposal if a GD is installed. If not then it is attached to the stub out on the drain pipe for the sink, like this.

Doesnt drain all the way and smells pretty bad from standing wate


ok if it doesnt drain properly... it means the drain hose isn't carrying it to the drain pipe, or the house's drain lines are backed up.
check these: Drain line/air gap Pump Drain valve and/or solenoid Belt Motor Timer

A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain.
Air gaps are installed in the drainage system to prevent the discharge from the dish washer to enter the sewer system and the contaminated water to drain back into the dishwasher after the pump stops.
When we install a dish washer we loop the discharge hose as high up under the cabinet as we can and secure it with pipe straps.
This creates a air gap so that when the pump stops nothing from the drainage system can flow back into the dish washer.


Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line.
If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.

we ll now see how to check the pump

Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support. Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm.Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash impeller.
The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port.

if u see any of these parts broken u wud need to replace themnow the next thing to check wud be the drain valveMany dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid.When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain.Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly.To access the drain valve remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel.It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to reach the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel. Look for a water hose running from the motor or underside of the tub. The hose should lead to the drain valve. now we need to check the motor ... now u might not be required to come uptill this iam giving u instructions just incase
If the motor isn't turning or working, the unit won't drain If the motor hums but doesn't turn, it may need to be replaced.

Some dishwashers are susceptible to getting stuck if you don't run them regularly. If you haven't run the dishwasher for more than a week,you may need to manually spin the motor to free it up. If the motor is defective, you need to replace it. Dishwasher motors just can't be serviced.also refer the following links http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/dishwasher/check/airgap.php

Need to replace drain hose how to get access to do this


Hello Oriel7,
I am assuming that your dishwasher is built in and not a portable model. That being the case, and assuming that the drain was originally installed correctly and feeing into your house drain near your kitchen sink, you may need to pull the dishwasher out from between the cabinets. To do that is fairly involved however I would ask why you need to replace your drain hose. If you see a section damaged or leaking then you may be able to remove a section anmd splice another tube to that. If that is not going to solve your problem then you will probably want to gain access to that drain house from the toe kick panel beneath the bottom of the door. That panel should be removable ( depending on the model ) and access to where your drain hose attaches will vary from model to model. If you cannot reach in from the front to remove and replace it, you will need to unhook your dishwasher from the cabinetry and slide it out for access to the connection point. The degree of difficulty doing this will vary from installation to installation and wil be dictated by the way your water supply line is attached as well as how your ac power is applied. Newer methods of bringing ac power to the dishwasher are similar to any other appliance in that the electrician will provide an outlet receptacle that you can plug your dishwasher in to or out of. Older techniques 'hard wire' the power in a junction box in the bottom of the dishwasher and a bot more involved in disconnecting. If that is the method your dishwasher is installed, you will need to remove or disable power to that wiring by swithcing off the appropriate circuit breaker or power disconnect. In any and all cases, the process of removing the dishwasher from bewteen two base cabinets is not very easy. Please elaborate on the reason why you need to replace your drain hose and the method your dishwasher has been installed. If you can provide more details, I can help you resolve your problem. Good luck.. hope this helps you.,..
Regards

How to install diswasher


To get the water to the dishwasher, it depends on your plumbing setup. If you have shutoffs under your sink(1/2" X 3/8" compression angle stop), you will need to buy a 1/2" x 3/8" compression double stop. This will be easy to change.

#1 Drill a 1 1/2" hole in the back bottom of the cabinet to run your water, drain line, and power cord through.
#2 First turn off the water at the Hot Water Tank, or the House supply, and turn on the sink to relieve the pressure.
#3 Next remove the Hot supply stop, and install the double stop.( The nut and ferrul do not have to be removed, as they will attach to the double stop. Reinstall the hot supply to the sink to one of the connections on the double stop.
#4 Install a 3/8" x 3/8" x 48" braided flex with the 1/2" MIP
x 3/8" compression ell at the dishwasher.
#5 Install the drain hose supplied with your dishwasher at the bottom of the dishwasher.
#6 Install a 6' pigtail power cord to the power box under your dishwasher.
#7 Feed the drain line, power cord and water supply through the hole in the back of the cabinet at the bottom. As you push the dishwasher back into the enclosure, you will need to feed the 3 lines into the cabinet under the sink.
#8 Attach the water line to the open connection on the double stop.
#9 The drain line will attach to your garbage disposal.(If you have one) Be sure to knock the small piece of plastic out of the drain connection, and retrieve it out of the disposal, before connecting the dishwasher drain line.
#11 Raise the middle of the drain line as high as possible under the cabinet under the sink, preferably attach it to a screw to the bottom of the counter top. This will keep the dishwasher from drawing a back siphonage and getting a bad odor.
#12 Plug in the dishwasher. Assuming you have electrical under your sink. Otherwise an electrical outlet may need to be installed.
#13 Balance the dishwasher using the front legs. After you adjust the depth of the dishwasher, and the level. Use the 2 mounting screws included with the dishwasher to fasten the 2 clips above the door to the bottom of the counter top.
#14 Remove the installation manual and styrofoam from the tray, and turn the dishwasher on. Inspect for leaks as you run a cycle.
#15 Attach the bottom kick panels

You are done.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Dishwasher installation problem


I have had this problem in the past as well. They state that you have all the parts you need to install the dishwasher, however that is assuming that it is under ideal conditions. You will need an adapter to attach to the fill line to make it match the size on the diswasher. They usually only cost about $3.00.

Frigidaire Dishwasher Leaking


I just found a service release number for my Frigidaire dishwasher that says it applies to Serial numbers TH632 through serial number TH737 made in 2007 for a replacement kit for the door seal at the bottom of the door. The bottom door seal has been changed, adding side seals that restrict the water surge from the center spray arm. The part number for the new seal is p/n 154588201. This seal can be replaced without removing the dishwasher or either of the door panels.
The seal is located on the bottom of the inner door panel and appears as a cream colored flexible
rubber blade bonded to a milky white colored plastic strip. To remove and properly install
replacement follow the instructions carefully.
1. Replacing this seal can be accomplished without disconnecting power from the unit.
Always use extra care when electrical power is present while serving an appliance.
2. Open door all the way down and remove lower rack. Set rack aside to a safe location.
3. Locate the seal on the bottom of inner door panel. Facing front of unit, the right side of the
seal can be pulled down slightly to facilitate removal.
4. Pull seal straight into the tub from right side.
5. With seal removed, and before installing replacement seal, locate the channel in inner door
panel that the seal mounts into. Locating this channel before installing the replacement can
make this procedure easier.
SERVICE FLASH
DW071
6. Place the new seal on a flat surface and measure from the bottom of the seal, (See Figure
1 to determine bottom of seal), up 3/8 "of an inch and place a mark with a pen or marker on
both ends (See Figure 2). If needed, scribe a straight line between these two marks this
will give you a guide when installing seal into the inner door panel.
7. The seal can only be installed one way. The end that holds this seal into the inner door
panel has a ½ inch notch cut in the right side. This notch allows the seal to be installed
around the end of the inner door channel that holds the seal.
8. Line up the seal along the bottom of the inner door panel and start from the right side, push
the seal into the door channel to the line marked in step #6.
9. With seal in place close the door, the tub will align the seal as needed.
10. Reinstall lower rack and operate unit to check for leaks.
If leaks continue to occur at the bottom corners, order Splash shield kit 154701001 for
dishwasher.

Before installing the kit remove and reinstall the lower door seal. To install the lower seal make
sure you measure up from the bottom of the seal 3/8 of an inch and mark the seal, do this on
both ends. This locates how far down the seal needs to be before closing the door. Do not
install this seal without measuring it first. After the lower door seal has been re-installed then
install the splash shields according to the instructions accompanying with the kit.
