Routine repair. There are videos on the net that show exactly how to replace the filter unit. However, when you order the filter, order a replacement pump impeller. The impeller must be removed to remove the filter on this model. The impeller was stuck on the shaft, and I had to destroy it with the side cutter pliers to get it off. Before putting the new one on, clean the pump shaft thoroughly and lube the shaft with silicon lube or Vaseline jelly. Clean the bottom of the water pan thoroughly, then reassemble. Then pour one cup of vinegar in the bottom of the dishwasher and run it with no dishes. This will clean the inside of the dishwasher.

Removed all phillips screws inside door panel and separated panel form door enough to access the control board. No need to disconnect the wiring harness except where it connects to the control board. Used nut driver to remove screws holding the control panel to the door. Gently tugged the various circuit bundles to remove each from panel except the ribbon circuit in the very first position, this is secured by slide/clamp which should be slid outward with fingertips, ribbon connector will then easily disengage. To install new panel simply reverse the removal process being especially careful to insert the ribbon circuit all the way into the slot before reengaging the slide/clamp. Secure the control panel to the door and then reattach the cover -. Good Luck.

Repair was very quick. Pop the lock on each rail endcap with a flathead screwdriver, remove endcap and set aside. One at a time, unclip each wheel from it's mount point and replace with new wheel, clipping it back into place. Once all four are done, reinsert the end caps and re-engage the locks (can be done by hand. Total repair time was maybe 5 minutes. Upper rack slides like new again.

Our dishwasher was not heating up to dry dishes

All steps were easy except the Maytag layout made it hard to get to the fittings to remove and reconnect the water line. After that we just moved the dishwasher from beneath the counter and laid it down on the front. Removing and testing the old heater element was easy. The hardest part of installing the element was the odd clips inside the dishwasher. I need to return the o-ring and nuts because you included them with the heating element.

removed door liner and removed and replaced the electronic control board. reinstalled door liner and reconnected electrical power by closing the circuit breaker. Started the dishwasher and ran it through a normal wash cycle to flush out and clean the dishwasher. All operations were normal. Piece of cake repair thanks to your troubleshooting guide. Thanks for including the tech data with the replacement control board. Lawrence Faison

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.

Thank You PartSelect for making this repair project simple and stress free. The exploded diagram of the appliance was clear and consise. The parts list was very helpfull. Showing me which parts were the most replaced gave me the confidence to order, reducing the prospect of having to return items ( always a pain point ). Parts arrived in just a few days. Followed the instructions on the video. Dishwasher was back in operation in no time and passed an overly thourgh dish inspection. Your site is amazing and is on my favorites tool bar.

Leaking under right front by float switch

Unplugged the power cord and removed front toe kick panels. Used a small mirror to see the location of the screw holding the float switch in place and removed the screw, disconnected the float from inside the dishwasher removed the float switch and replaced. It was a simple repair and so far seems to have solved the leaking problem. There was some unusual wear to my old float and the switch looked like it may have been leaking a small amount as it had lime build up on the switch lever. The part came with an easy to follow instruction sheet. PartSelect has saved me money on repair work I thought I would not be able to do myself. The website is very helpful in resolving what he problem may be and what parts are needed. Fixed four other appliances using this site over the past few years and they ship quick.
