This was very easy to fix, just pop out the old one and install the new one. I saved $60-$75 on a repairman coming out to fix the thing in 5 minutes. Truly, I received the part from PartSelect in two days after placing the on-line order. We were up and running in between loads.

Removed the old broken wheel and popped in the new one. The best part of the entire problem was searching this website and finding the part quickly. Granted the shipping was almost double the price of the part, but still under $15. Searching and delivery of the part was fantastic.

The repair was simple. I did a Google search for the part online. PartSelect.com was the 1st site to appear. The link brought me right to the part I was looking for. I order the part (2 just so I would have one down the road in case this happens again) and the next day it was on its way. I simple popped of the old part and installed the new part... works like it is supposed to now. Thanks for the help PartSelect!

Take out the old parts and clean all the ones to be reused by power washing with garden hose and/or compressor blasting. Put it all back together. BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO PUNCTURE THE ACCUMULATOR FILTER! THE TORX SCREWS ARE RIGHT NEXT TO THE FILTER SO IF YOU SLIP AND DROP THE TOOL, THE FILTER WILL BE TOAST!

THE DISHWASHER WORKS PERFECT NOW!

Ordered the part easily using model number and schematic on web site. Part came in two days. Unfortunately, they had the right part number but the wrong part was pulled and sent to me. I called and they resolved the issue over the phone and sent me the right part in two days. Part snapped right on in 5 seconds and I was back washing my dishes that evening.

Remove the racks top and bottom. The Station D seals are at the far back on the tube that supplies water to the top and middle spray heads. Unsnap the old one and snap in the new - it only goes one way! This will repair the seal aroound the tube that supplies the middle sprayer and restore pressure to all 3 heads. Repalcing the screen accumulator is harder. you need a torx driver. remove the little thumb nut on the bottom sprayer and remove the sprayer. Then remove the tube where you just replaced the D station. (You of course could have done this earlier if you were doing both repairs) then 6 screws on the impeller housing. Now remove the 1 torx screw on the impeller and pull the impeller up and off. Remove the 3 screws on the cover and 2 screws on the accumulator. Clean all the old food scraps that are clogging up the works and reassemble in reverse order. Washer is working again!!

Broken Inlet Valve due to freezing - water leak

  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins

Most of the time was spent pulling out the dishwasher from under the counter, as a new tile floor had been installed after the DW was installed.

Great pictures of components on this website confirmed what part to order.

Shut off water feed to DW and disconnect power to DW.

Unplug wire connector to old valve (solenoid) and disconnect water inlet hose. Observe that valve is attached to sheet metal bracket.

Remove bracket, with valve attached. Don't remove valve from bracket. New valve comes with sheet metal bracket.

Remove female threaded adaptor (brass) from back of old valve and screw on to new valve using Teflon tape. That is the only piece you need to reuse.

Attached the new bracket (with valve attached) to DW. Attach water inlet hose. Attach plug to new valve.

Turn on water to DW. Check for leaks. Retighten hose connection if required. Run dishwasher. Keep lower panel off for a couple of days to be certain no leaks develop.

Broken latch.Hard to shut, nearly impossible to open.

Removed the screws on the door of the dishwasher, lifted up inside of door to get to the latch assembly, unplugged the 2 sets of wires, removed the old broken latch. To install new latch did all of the above in opposite order.
Very simple, quick easy fix. The only thing that might be an issue for some people is that you need a set or torx head screw drivers. (nice little set at Home Depot for less than $10. I'd say.)

Looks like Maytag knew this was a problem. My chopper sleeve (plastic) was stripped and causing the impeller to not spin. The replacement part was all metal and was very easy to replace the old one just by removing screws. The replacement looks to be very sturdy and should last a lot longer than the original. Thanks.

Dishes were coming out dirty with specs of debris on them

I noticed there was a filter type of material in the bottom of the dishwasher that had a small tear in it and figured that was my problem. I removed the nut from the sprayer arm at the bottom of the tub, removed the sprayer arm, removed 3 screws of the plastic cover below that. Removed six screws on the plastic cover below that. Removed one screw fron the center of the black pump spinner wheel that allowed me to lift off that cover. Then I lifted out the flowplate assembly. Placed the new part in and reversed the steps. Works like new again! All for about $30...I am not trianed in any way and have no experience in this kind of thing but am motivated trying to avoid a large service bill for a few screws. I am so happy...Thanks PartSelect!

Dishwasher wouldn't stay on without pushing on door due to faulty switch.

  • Customer: Andrew from Azusa CA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers

Removed plastic lining from dishwasher door with torx screwdriver, then removed screw holding door latch assembly in place. Removed existing switch from door latch assembly and replaced.

This switch was not the correct one initially as it was a normally closed switch, whereas the existing switch was a normally open. Was able to pry open the switch and switch the contacts to normally open so it worked out in the end. Would recommend purchasing the complete latch assembly w/ switches if you aren't comfortable taking the switch apart.
