Unplugged the dishwasher, removed the screws from the inside door panel. Lift out the latch assembly and gently pry the bundles of wires (white on the left, black on the right)that terminate in a plastic block, from the latch assembly with a flat bladed screwdriver. Push the plastic block on each bundle of wires onto the new latch assembly and put the new assembly in place. Replace the inner door panel and fasten down with screws. Plug dishwasher in and away you go!

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.

door latch broke

I removed the screws inside the door panel to access the door latch and then removed the latch, after disconnecting the electrical lines. I removed the new electrical switches that came with the new part, and reused the old ones just because it was easier, and I knew they were not the problem. I inserted the new latch assembly, replaced the screws and closed the door. The door would not latch until I used a screwdriver blade to trip the small latch inside the assembly, from the inside. Then the door latched properly and the dishwasher works just fine, again.

Dishes were not coming clean

Dishes were not coming clean and water was not draining from the dishwasher. Put in new part, and problem still existed. Went and bought a new dishwasher. However during the replacement I found the old dishwasher pump was also clogged with old gel packs, and the water hose was clogged with pipe debris. After clearing the pipe buildup, and replacing the dish washer, all is well. I was hoping the repair would have gone better, had I known the pump was clogged beyond repair I would have replaced the dishwasher sooner. The main issue was the clogged water hose, which caused all of the other issues. I would have loved for the $50 in parts to have fixed my existing dishwasher, unfortunately we didn't correct the problem before ruining the old dishwasher, a $350 mistake...

I turned off the circuit breaker. Then I removed the screws on the inside of the loading door. I removed the latch by unpluging the switches. I then pluged in the new switches, aligned the latch and replaced the door screws. I turned on the breaker and tried the latch and I was done.

AFTER REPLACING THE DOOR FOAM STRIP AND THE SOAP DISH GROMMET I STILL HAD THE WATER LEAKAGE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE DOOR, IN FACT A BIT MORE LEAKAGE. THEN I REPLACED THE FOAM INSULATOR STRIP ON THE INNER DOOR. STILL HAD THE LEAKAGE! I OPENED THE DOOR AFTER THE WATER FINISHED THE FILL CYCLE AND NOTICED THE WATER LEVEL WAS UNUSUALLY HIGH. APPARENTLY THE WATER FLOAT WAS PARTIALLY STUCK ALLOWING AN OVER FILL. I PUSHED ON THE FLOAT DOWNWARD A FEW TIMES AND REMOVED SOME OF THE WATER AND RE-RAN THE WASHER. THE LEAK WAS REDUCED TO A FEW DROPS. REMOVED THE FLOAT AND SOAKED IT IN VINEGAR TO CLEAN IT AND THIS CURED THE PROBLEM.
