I have replaced the heating element and the enclosed new motherboard. I now find that the water is not drained completely after any wash. I check the drain tube and it flows unimpeded directly to the drain underneath. Is the problem the board with changed cycles? Any suggestions?

I have the typical and apparently very common door balance link breakage on my Kitchenaid dish washer. I've found the matching Door Balance Link Kit AP3775412 to order (thank you!). However, I am VERY reluctant to replace a part shown to be made by the OEM (Whirlpool) on your website, when there have apparently been no efforts on the part of Whirlpool to improve the parts reliability. This dishwasher only started use in 2008, so it's only five years old with just two of us using it perhaps once every other day at most. Is there a third party part to repair this that is purpose-designed to be stronger and less likely to break again? I don't mind fixing things, but fixing them once in a lifetime is all I want to do. I don't want to have to go through pulling the dishwasher out again in another 5 years to replace these parts again. That's just dumb.

When installing a new linkage what is an easy way and sequence to stretch the spring enough to wrap aound the pulleys and hook up the linkage? It seems to take a tremendous amount of force.

Our KitchenAid dishwasher door got heavy and dropped quickly for about a year, then it got *really* heavy and is a free-fall now. It went from bad to worse; not sure what else broke. Can you give me part numbers I need to fix it? Will they come with instructions?

regarding my door balance kit on my Kenmore Elite dishwasher: The springs are fine, and all the parts of the kit seem fine except the two "links" that have the string attached to them. The ends of the strings are frayed and not connected to the plastic tips. Can I just run the string through the holes in the tips and know the ends?

The door balance cables are broken, Do I need to completely uninstall the dishwasher or can I just move it out a bit and reach under it to replace the door balance cables? Thanks, Joe

Today I heard the string break on the balance kit. I also heard something clink down the floor vent. I am thinking it was a pin. Does the balance kit come with new pins. Also the springs are quite noisy and have been for quite some time. Any thoughts? Thank you
