Amana Dishwasher Repair

Appliance:
Amana Dishwasher

Problem:
Proper procedure for the removal of old and installation of new dishwasher.

Solution:

Turn off the power supply to the dishwasher and the water supply valve. Then disconnect the water fill hose and the drain line to the sink or garbage disposal.

Depending on the floor, you might have a problem - the drain comes up from the floor in one portion of the dishwasher, but the new one may not match up. And because of the way the new dishwasher is made, you may not be able to route the drain underneath and get it to where it needs to be. The best thing to do on this occasion is to install a flexible, braided water line (part #5305516519). You can route this water line in a lot of different ways.

Most of the time, the dishwasher is held into the top of the cabinet with a few screws. Remove these screws and screw in the front leveling legs. Carefully remove the dishwasher from the cabinet. The new dishwasher can now be installed the same way.

It is important to level or slightly tilt back your dishwasher. If you have a wood floor, there is a floor mat that you can put underneath the dishwasher. This floor mat surrounds the underside of the dishwasher and then filters the water out to the front. If you develop a small leak, you'll see a bit of water on the floor in front of the dishwasher and be alerted before any major damage is done.
