We have looked at dishwasher parts before as many of you may remember. this week we revisited several popular items from prior promotions. We also have a few new items that we have not looked at before in our Wednesday Weekly Stock series.
A part we feature frequently is the DWK-6572DW dishwasher installation kit. That's because we feel that kit offers real value. The kit comes with 2 different styles of water line fittings. Hose style and 1/4 line style. 7 Foot long stainless steel inlet line. It also includes Teflon tape, wiring, wire nuts hose clamps, and an electrical clamp for securing unit to power supply. Best of all, the kit costs less than buying the components individually.
Another hookup item that might be needed if you are installing a Whirlpool dishwasher is their 90 degree elbow. Whirlpool's fitting has unusual sizing of 3/4" hose fitting on one size and 3/8" compression fitting on the other side. Keep one in stock "just in case". Part number W10685193.
As mentioned, these items have been featured before. This week we featured a few parts to help with water coming into and out of the dishwasher. Getting water into the dishwasher is accomplished on many unit by the use of a single coil water valve, like the "universal" DW-53. A "universal" option for getting water out of the machine is the 7 foot dishwasher drain hose, part SSDW-7.
To close this weeks stock, we feature an item that has been known to cause some confusion on the research front. Here is the confusion: the latch can be purchased with or without the handle attached. The parts breakdown however does not make that clear. If you order the latch as shown on the breakdown, that is all you will get: the latch. HOWEVER, if you look up the handle, the parts breakdown won't indicate it, but you will get the handle and a latch as an assembly.
This tip is not true for all dishwasher models, but a great many Whirlpool units use this assembly. Our featured item this week is the white version of the handle and latch assembly, part W10130694.
