I bought a set of appliances used online and the fridge door did not align to the other door. I quickly noticed I had lost the lower bushing to the right door upon transportation so I did what any man would do...find a way to fix it! after checking out a few websites I ran accross Partselect and after seeing their "dummy proof" diagrams It was certain I couldn't mess this up considering the loads of bushings to choose from. The order was placed Monday morning and to my surprise I had a package the VERY NEXT DAY!! AMAZING delivery time and quality products. PartSelect is definately my appliace parts source from now on! Thank you!

  • Customer: Robert from West Chicago, IL

  • Tools Required: Socket set
  • 4 of 4 people found this instruction helpful
First, I took out the glass tray along with the two slide out compartments that are part of that assembly. Then I used a small socket set to take out the three screws that hold the part in place and along with the part a plastic connector comes out with it that adjusts the temp of the bin area. Line up the holes on the slider and two screws come out that hold the slider to the part. Disconnet the plastic piece in the back that adjusts are flow (press down plastic holders) Reattach the slider, snap the plastic piece on the back and reassemble. Sounds complicated but once you are in there, its self explanatory.

The repair was quite easy. I had already removed the panel cover on the rear and removed the plastic cover several days before that. I had also pulled the wire harness that went to the upper left connector that has allowed the refrigerator to operate without the flashing lights while the part was enroute. I unplugged the refrigerator, disconnected the remaining connectors, and popped the old electronic control board out. I had to be very careful here as the plastic snaps that held it in were very hard to spread apart and I did not want to break one. Put in the new board, reconnected all of the wiring harnesses (each has a different pattern so you cannot mix them up). I plugged the refrigerator in and using the code from the label on the upper right hand side of the refrigerator and the instructions that came with the new board, I programmed the correct code in and everything was operational. Put the covers back on and went back to work. I did all of this in a 15 minute break between teleconference calls.

clips to pantry drawer lid had been broken off

  • Customer: Linda from West Harwich, MA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 3 of 3 people found this instruction helpful
First I removed the pantry drawer; then the two crisper drawers and glass shelf. Then I removed the hex screws that held end cap in place. Removal of cap from refrigerator was complicated by the adjustable temperature control - it is loosely attached at the back of end cap and also has to be removed to get cap out. Gentle persuasion accomplishes this. Getting the slider off end cap also a bit difficult. Then I removed the drawer glides. Reversing all steps was fairly easy and the rest of the "fix" went well. I wished that there had been some written directions - or at the very least, a diagram of how all went together. All in all was still cheaper than repair person.

The threads on the yoke shaft stripped.

  • Customer: Steven from Crossville, TN
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Wrench set
  • 10 of 24 people found this instruction helpful
I had to cut off the old yoke since the threads had stripped and it would not come off. Once I did that all I had to do was to remove 4 screws on the auger motor and replace it with the new auger motor. Then I put the yoke on the new auger motor shaft and then put the unit back in the freezer. Work time was less than 15 minutes with no problems.

Once the part arrived, which was very quickly BTW..all I had to do was remove the old filter and then just screw the new one into place....Now I just happen to be both female and blonde but was able to get the job done in less than 15 minutes (that includes opening the box) and with very little water dripping from the old filter!!! Looks like I could work as the Maytag repair woman soon!!
