I'm installing the handle and forgot how the wires connect,is it white,white,then black,black, or black and white,the water doesn't seem to be heating. Thank you for your help.
Answer E. Winkelman,
The wiring is black with black and white with white. You will want to check to make sure that power is going to the heater when the unit is in the heating part of the cycle to determine if there is a fault if the wiring is correct.
How do I install the handle?
Answer Hello E Winkelman. You will disconnect the power and remove the inner door panel to access and replace the latch kit 5304442175. These are not hard to replace on the unit. Just remove the old one and install wires onto the new and place it in the proper location and reinstall the liner.
The springs are missing from the dishwasher door. What is the part number and price and where do I install the springs?
Answer Phil, the spring is part number 154430501. To install the door spring, you will first need to pull the unit out from under the counter to expose the hinges. Hook the spring to the hinge and then to the cabinet hooks on the base. Thanks.
I ordered and installed the new latch. It works fine, but does not close the door tightly. Steam and some water are now escaping from the top of the door. It came with a new gasket for the door. I did not replace that. It looks like the one that is already in there, so I didn't bother. My questions: Is the new gasket thicker than the old one? Will the new gasket get the door to seal tightly? Thank you, Tad
Answer Hello Tad,
The new gasket will be identical to the old one. The only exception is the fact that the old one will be collapsed some from being installed and the door closed against it for a period of time. The new gasket will probably seal better than the old one but I doubt this will cure your issue. You see, the bottom of the door is not sealed by design. It is used as the air inlet for the dry cycle. If the door gasket is the cause of the leak you will see water down the sides of the door liner on the outside of where the gasket seats. This type of leak is best corrected with a door latch strike adjustment 154511401. If the leak is coming from the bottom of the outer tub it is usually corrected by leveling the unit, replacing a stopped up or separated spray arm.
the door latch from this dishwasher unit has 4 prongs and the replacement part only shows 2. Will this work?
Yes this latch will work for your unit. In the picture it appears to have only 2 electrical connections but actually has 4. There are several pictures on the website that show the terminals.
