I simply removed everything from the bottom on the inside of the dishwasher, required a philips and torque head bits. removed the chopper that was plastic and replaced it with the new parts that I ordered, the original seal was fine so I left it but I saved the new one so if ever needed, it's available to me. The whole process was extremely easy even though it had to be accomplished leaning over the open door and I am an extremely large man, Odd thing though was, I called 2 appliance repair companies and when I explained the symptons, they both told me it was a bad motor and it would be wiser to purchase a new dishwasher. I did my own diagnosis by taking everything encluding the chopper off and putting a piece of ducttape on the motorshaft like a flag, pushed start and then opened the door and to my amazement the flag was spinning, sooooooo, wasn't a bad motor and through further examination, I noticed the threads were stripped out of the plastic chopper, an oversight in the design from Maytag but my parts ordered from this company resolved my issue in a timely manner and expense, Even though $62 seemed a tad high for a part known to be under designed, it was much cheaper than a new dishwasher and made of metal, never to fail again, THANKS PARTS SELECT !!!!!!!! YOU SAVED MY DISHPAN HANDS !!!!!! Yip P.S. I saved their website for futher reference since my whole kitchen has Maytag appliances.
