It took less then 10 minutes to rplace the new gasket. I think that Maytag is way ahead of the competion on this. The Dishwasher is now back to working and no more leaks.

My wife was visiting her parents in Ecuador and she relayed back to me that their dishwasher was inoperative. She explained the situation and I researched the problem with Parts Select. The solution was simple, since Parts Select had an array of extremely helpful step by step repair instructions. I sent her the link, ordered the door switches, and she did the repair by viewing the video. It was an outstanding, effortless experience! Thanks to Parts Select, not only was the parts inexpensive, but instruction videos are to the tee!

I took out the old gaskets and replace them after I clean and dried them. very easy. I'm a woman and if I can do it anyone can. Although I used the parts it did not fix the problem. So with help of parts select I'm on to the next solution. They're great fast fast on your supplies.

Broken wheel on upper rack and missing rack stops

  • Customer: Robert from Madison AL
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Bought extra parts incase I messed up. Fitted the wheel to the rack fairly quickly. Had to remove one rack stop, with a pair of pliers, in order to completely remove the rack from the moveable tracks. Folded over one of the rack stops and locked it in place completely. This is the wrong thing to do as it will not slide into the end of the moveable track. The trick is to partially fold the rack stop and start it into the moveable track. Then when the rack stop is inside the moveable track you can finish completing the folding of the rack stop. Once folded completely it is impossible to get the part unfolded.

Mice living behind the dishwasher

Mice were living behind and on top of the dishwasher and destroyed the pad. Had to throw it away. Ordering you was easy, and the pad fit perfectly.

Dishwasher not washing

Underneath the drum, behind the bottom face plate, you will find the solenoid with a return arm and spring. It is close to the front of the dishwasher- Just remove the spring and replace it with a new one using needle nose pliers to reconnect. If your dishwasher is filling with h2o and then draining the water without washing this could be your problem. This spring holds the lifter arm, inside the bottom of the drum, in the right possition to make the dishwasher (wash). A cheap fix as art was less than $4.00. Happpy Fixing!

I followed the video provided with the Order Acknowledgement. Very Very simple and easy to do. This is without a doubt the best company I have ever dealt with online. Prompt, quick delivery and very professional. The only mistake I made was not ordering the O ring for the soap dispenser. I am in the process of ordering that right now. This is the go 2 place for appliance repairs for sure. You won't be disappointed in any way.

Orient the gasket so that the more squishable hollow side of the gasket faces the door, and check that the length is sufficient to fill ths entire channel. The less compressible side goes into the channel, which requires some skill and strength to seat well. The flat portion of the more or less square gasket has two edges to it. What works best is to put the edge that is toward the inside of the dishwasher into the channel with your fingers, and then press in the other edge firmly with the small spatula of about 2 or 2and 1/2 inches until you can no longer see that edge. This is the visual indication it is seated. in the corners you may only be able to use a corner of the spatula.

door the soap dispenser stopped opening

unscrewed 7 torx screws with the impact driver. removed the motor from the bracket. comes out pretty easily. moved wires aside. Pulled the wires off the motor using the pliers- one came off very hard, note where they go, corroded in place. installed the new motor by easily re-attaching the leads. Biggest surprise was that there were 2 motors. I initially replaced the lower one which did not solve the problem. When I replaced the upper, it worked. Not sure of the function of the lower motor. The upper one clearly fits into a slot which seems to attach to the doors.
