Hi! It’s Steve from PartSelect. Today, we
are going to show you how to change the Detergent Dispenser on your dishwasher and it’s a
really easy job. All we are going to need is a Phillips screwdriver and a pair of Needle-nose
pliers. Let me show you how we do it. Now before we begin this repair the first thing
we will need to do is to disconnect the power to the dishwasher, so locate the proper fuse
or circuit breaker and disconnect it at the panel. Next, we will open the dishwasher door
and then we will remove the two lower screws that secure the front panel to the inner door
panel. You may need to support that panel as you remove the screws and then we will
just tilt that, door back into a closed position. We will let the hand drop down, remove it
and set it aside. Now our next step will be to remove the wires from the terminals on
the wax motor, on the existing detergent cup, so just grasp the end of the terminals and
pull them straight off. Next, we will remove the six Phillips screws around the perimeter,
and now we will carefully open the door again, and then we push the old dispenser through
to the inside, and we will remove and discard the old dispenser. Now when installing the new one, we will want
to make sure that we keep that wax motor on the left hand side. So just position it through
the opening, and we will very carefully install two of the screws, and take caution not to
over-tighten these screws, there is a gasket around the perimeter of that dispenser that
will seal tightly against the inner door panel, but we don’t want to tighten the screws
too much that we strip them, and the bottom left hand screw has a retainer for the wire
harness. So we will reconnect the wires, and make sure the terminals are on nice and tight,
we will loop that access wire through that retainer. Now we are ready to put the outer
door panel back on. Now there are two slotted openings on either side that will engage these
hooks on the inner door panel. So we will just hold that into place, tuck it up underneath
the control panel. Now hold it in place till we open the door. Check the operation of the
detergent cup
and our repair is complete. I told you it was an easy job. Thanks for watching and good
luck with your repair.
