Dishwasher Repair- Replacing the Docking Station with Flappers (Whirlpool Part #6-917647)

engage the left side first

Hi, it’s Ervin from winnipeg-appliance-repair.ca.
We’re going to explain you how to change the docking station with flappers on your dishwasher. It’s a really easy job and you won’t need any tools. Let me explain you how we do it.

Now to do this repair we’ll open the dishwasher up, We’re going to remove any items that are on the upper rack, and then We’re going to remove the upper rack. So pull it out far enough that you can grasp the rails and then remove the rail stops. There’s a little locking tab so push that towards the center, slide the rail stops out; do that for both sides. Then supporting that upper rack we’ll pull it right out of the rails and set it aside. Push these rails back in so they’re out of the way.

Next we’ll reach in and grasp the side of that docking station, there’s a little locking tab there, we’ll pull out on that and unhinge it from the tower. Now we’ll take our new docking station, we’ll insert the new flappers on it.

engage one

There’s a mold mark and the mold mark will go inside of the rear tower so as you install those the little mold mark will be facing you. There’s a couple little pins that hold it in place, just make sure you press it firmly onto those.

Now to install, we will engage the left side first, center it up, rotate it to the right and snap it into place. Now We’re ready to put the upper rack back in. Pull the rails out, engage one wheel on one side until we get both rear wheels in place, push the rack back as far as it will go on the rails, then we’ll reinstall the rail stops.

The locking tab will point towards the outside, so depress that and slide it into the end of the rail. And our repair is complete. Told you it was an easy job.

Thanks for reading, and good luck with your repair.
