I want to thank you for your quick response in getting the part I ordered to me. I received it on Friday 11/05 and installed it the next day. It works just fine and when my wife is happy everyone in this house is happy.

Thanks again,
Loren P.

Installation successfully completed. Thanks for your support and the nice merchandise. We like the new racks better than the originals. Your prices are also more reasonable than the competition, for essentially the same products. Happy to provide an endorsement, if you use them.

How To Troubleshoot Dishwasher Parts And Repairs

If your dishwasher is on the fritz and you want to repair it, you are going to need to determine which dishwasher parts are bad and need to be replaced. There are some steps that can help you troubleshoot exactly which parts are the culprit. The first question is, does the dishwasher work at all? If the answer is no then the reason may be because there is no electricity getting to the appliance, for any of a number of reasons, some of which have nothing to do with the dishwasher parts. Unplug the dishwasher and plug in a small appliance like a toaster into the electrical socket. This will let you verify that there is power coming through into the appliance. If the small appliance does not work check the fuse or breaker. Follow the cord and make sure it did not separate inside the appliance. Dishwasher parts that commonly go may include the door switch, so if there is no power problem replace this part first. The selector switch and the timer are dishwasher parts that normally do not go bad, but it has happened before. If everything else fails, you may want to look at the switch and the timer as possibly needing to be replaced.


I your dishwasher works, but your dishes are not getting clean enough, this may involve a different set of dishwasher parts possibly needing to be replaced. First determine the water level in the dishwasher. If there is no water coming in, or only an insufficient amount, it can be one of two things. First look at the water shut off valve that is under your sink, and make sure that the valve is all the way opened. If this is not the problem, then you may need to purchase replacement dishwasher parts, because the water valve in the appliance could be faulty, and need to be replaced. Once this valve is replaced that should fix the problem of not enough water. Another tip is to make sure your water is hot enough, because if not then your dishes will not get clean or sanitized. Some of these steps do not require replacing any dishwasher parts.


If your dishwasher runs great until it is time to drain and then will not drain, most of the causes will require replacing dishwasher parts, but not all of them. The most common problems with dishwashers is that the drain hoses get clogged up or there is an air gap in the hose. When this happens then your appliance will not drain, and unclogging the hose or eliminating the air gap will take care of the problems. Some repairs will require dishwasher parts though, such as a broken belt, which is also a common problem on models that use one. The pump may also require new dishwasher parts, especially if there are any broken propellers or other components. If you have a GE model, you may want to look at the drive solenoid carefully, because it may be possible to free up this component if nothing is broken. If not, it may need to be replaced.
