How much will it cost to get your advice?JA: I'm not sure of the exact price, but there's only a $5 deposit. The rest of the price information will be on the page I send you to.Customer: Thanks. My question is re a Whirlpool Dishwasher model DU960WKQ1.JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?Customer: The water feed tube, just below the upper rack's washer arm caught on a Corelle dinner plate that was in the lower rack, when I was unloading the upper rack.JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: Please just hear the question. The plate shattered into tiny bits of glass. I took off the round cover with the washer arm on it, and wiped off all the tiny bits of glass I could find. But didn't take off the assembly that has many tiny screws holding it in place. Here is the question: Since I removed all the glass I could find so far, can I just start using the washer again?JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: I don't want to take the loser assembly off. Too many tiny screws to un-do, and I'm afraid of dropping one down farther into the works. I mean the LOWER assembly.

I have a DD603 model dishwasher and bought the replacement

Hi! I have a DD603 model dishwasher and bought the replacement rotor motor. My nephew in his infinite wisdom used a screwdriver to get out the old piece that was fused in. Now the well has chipped plastic around the sides. Should I try and sand this down with a metal file, then sandpaper, or would this action be futile? Thanks! DeniceJA: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of your dishwasher? And have you run a diagnostic test cycle?Customer: Fisher Paykel DD603JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: And I'm dealing with the top drawer. I had a code on the bottom drawer that the drawer had standing water. That was a cinch, disassembled and cleaned it, now it's perfect.JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: Yes. I'm 58 and learned a lot about tv's and appliances along the way. My late husband was a contractor so I have access to tools that could work.
