How is it removed? I would like to clear out the clogged sediment or replace it.
Answer Hello Steve. You will need to un-install the unit and remove the nut 4020FD3641C from the inside of the unit by twisting it to release it. Then you can remove and clean the chamber.
After removing the lower front panel I can see water dripping on the front left of this dishwasher during the drain cycles. The drip stops during the wash or rinse cycles. Should I replace the entire Guide Assembly or go for the round gasket? Seems to be a drain drip. Thank you!
Answer Hello Mike,
I believe you need to pull the unit at least partially to determine exactly where the leak is originating. Without pulling it, there are too many possibilities. When you pull the unit, use the slack, (if any), to run the unit while pulled out a bit. Most of the time you can pull the insulation back and trace the leak to its' point of origin.
Could this part cause water to leak on the floor becuase it's clogged? If so, how do you take it off?
Answer Hello Patrick,
Most of these that I have seen leaking wasn't actually the fault of this part. The water inlet valve 5221DD1001F isn't opening all the way and the resulting low water pressure will cause the water to "dribble" from the air vent hole. Changing the water inlet valve will stop the leak. The only one of these I ever had to change was chewed on by a mouse.
