Hi, it’s Ervin from winnipeg-appliance-repair.ca. We’re going to explain you how to change the wax motor on your dishwasher.

with your repair

Really easy job; all We’re going to need is a #20 torques bit and a quarter inch nut driver.

Let me explain you how we do it. Now before we begin this repair we should disconnect the power to the dishwasher because we will be in an area where there’s some wires that will be exposed. Now our first step will be to remove the seven #20 torques head screws that hold the liner to the door.

Then we’ll just separate the inner door liner from the door; that’ll gain us access to the component.
Now that we have the inner door panel separated from the outer door we’ve kind of jammed it in so it’ll hold itself up straight here.

Dishwasher Repair- Replacing

We need to remove the two wires from the wax motor, simply disconnect the spade terminals. The wax motor is held in this assembly by two tabs so we’ll just separate those just enough to lift the wax motor out; discard the old one.

Now the plunger, you’ll take note, has a little open spot at the very base of it that will fit specifically into the sliding mechanism so we’ll want to make sure when we install the new one that that fits into that spot. We can reconnect the wires, then We’re ready to put the inner door panel back to the outer door.
Now We’re ready to fasten the inner door panel to the outer door; make sure that it tucks into the inside of the frame, then we’ll just replace the torques screws, we’ll start with the one in the top center first. Now We’re ready to reconnect the power, and our repair is complete. We told you it was an easy job.

Thanks for reading, and good luck with your repair.
