Stripped threads on plastic motor shaft

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

I watched the youtube video and followed the steps. The first time I tried it without taking the motor out because I didn't want to spill water on the floor, but I wasn't able to tighten the new motor shaft all the way so nothing lined up and it didn't work. Second time I followed instructions exactly and it worked like a charm. This is the second repair I have made to this dishwasher that was given to me for free because the door latch was broken. I fixed that problem for around $12.00. This time it broke because something metal got jammed in the motor causing the threaded shaft to strip. This repair cost around $80.00. Still the cheapest, nicest dishwasher that I could ask for. A+++ for partselect.com on price, service, and delivery. Thanks.

DW leaving dirt in bottom of glasses

  • Customer: suzanne from Church Hill TN
  • Difficulty: Easy

The original problem that brought me to Parts select was a broken wheel on the top tray. While searching for part #s I came across several descriptions of dishes not clean . The videos available on line here were very detailed. This encouraged me to go ahead and order the parts. They arrived soon and were accurate to my order. The video on replacing the seal and chopper walked me through the entire job very clearly. Going slow and carefully keeping track of al screws I replaced the chopper, impeller and the filter. The filter did have a tear in the screening which allowed dirty water back up into the dishwasher.

Dishwasher started leaking

  • Customer: Peter from Natick MA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers

Pulled the dishwasher out from the counter. Wiring and supply hose were long enough that I did not need to disconnect them. Suspected a leak in the injector hose but the evidence was circumstantial. That is mineral deposits collected around the area where the house connects to a small plastic box and then into the dishwasher. I replaced the hose in a few minutes and added a clamp on the box side where no clamp was called for. So far, no leaks.

Time is finally taking its toll on our 9 year old Maytag dishwasher. As parts give out we replace them from Parts Select - repairs have been very simple and straightforward and have kept this workhorse plodding along in my kitchen. This year the silverware basket bottom finally gave out and I ordered one on Parts Select...unfortunately it was out of stock, at Parts Select and EVERYWHERE else. I limped along using the basket thinking I probably wouldn't be able to replace it given the age of the dishwasher. I was completely delighted when I got and email from Parts select saying the basket was in stock and would be shipped right away. It was a simple switch out! Parts Select, thanks for keeping this on order and following through when it was available!

The docking stations just pulled of and snapped on. I took the tube in the back out to make sure the docking stations were seated well but I'm not even sure that was needed. Very easy. Another contributing factor was using rinse aid with an all-in-one gel pack detergent. I let the rinse aid run out and it's been working great ever since.

Take notice of the location and orientation of the broken pivots so that you can then remove the broken ones and exactly replace the new ones in the correct positions and orientation. It only requires your hands; although, a flathead screwdriver and a pair of pliers could be handy. The pivots fit snugly on the wire racks.

Dishes not getting clean

We recently purchased a new home and it didn't matter how hot we ran the water in the sink before starting the dishwasher, the dishes, especially glasses, were filthy. Extra rinse cycles, pots and pans cycle, nothing worked. After finding this site, we took the chance on what the troubleshooter recommended and bought the accumulator filter and wash impeller. The parts came so fast! We followed the videos on this site step by step and we were successfully able to replace the filter and impeller. The impeller was COATED in nasty slimy grossness; it was obvious the previous owners never rinsed their dishes before running the dishwasher. After replacing these two parts, we have clean dishes! We have switched from tablets to liquid detergent which also helped (not sure why, tablets have worked at our old house just fine).

Replaced the valve from the side. Easy and quick. The program to identify the part is excellent. The big concern is getting the right part.

no repair, just replacement. New basket heavier material and seems like it will hold up much better than the original

The dishwasher stopped receiving water

I went online and determined what the possible dishwasher parts would cause no water entering. The most recommended part was a valve. I ordered it and afterword obtained a ohmmeter and determined the part in my washer was not faulty. It tested the same as the new part I sent for. The real problem was the connecting metal flex hose that I had installed when I put it in. It had a valve built in that prevents water to flood the kitchen if the hose becomes broke. Even though I tested it out and found water flowing through it, the valve when under pressure had gotten plugged up with dirt particles that caused it to malfunction. I changed the hose and Wa La everything worked fine. I in fact did not have to change the so-called faulty valve. I suggest a detailed evaluation of the problem before purchasing parts. With electrical components it is practically impossible to know if they are faulty without an ohmmeter. Some valves become stuck and if unplugged then plugged back in they will reset themselves. I suggest that if one does not know what they are doing, refrain from messing with electrical parts. Don J.
