Removed the upper rack rail stops. Removed the upper rack by pulling outward until the rack rollers cleared the rails. Attached the new roller on the upper rack. You can look at the other undamaged rollers to see how they lock into place. re-install the upper rack by feeding the upper rack rollers back onto the rails. Install the rail stops back into the rail ends,and the job is complete. VERY EASY!

I had to call an appliance repairman to come fix it. If I would have been able to pull the dishwasher out, it would have been a simple fix. It would not come out and I loosened to water line trying therefore causing more problems.

WE installed a new door gasket. However the machine still had a leak only on the left side. Called a tech and he came and said the gasket was installed backwards. Apparently the original one was also because we installed the new gasket exactly the way the old one was. We are all set now.

I had to cut the old rack for 2 axles and add 2 wheels from the old rack to the new one that was sent. the new one had 2 less wheels.I used white zip ties and wheels from the old rack. Placing the wheels in the right place I used the zip ties to hold them in place. Without the extra wheels like the old rack had the new one would fall into the bottom of the dish washer. Working just fine so far.

I disassembled parts from the lower Spray arm to the Rinse Arm. Everything was gunked up, nothing was broken. I replaced the Lower Spray Arm, Secondary Filter, Pump Housing Filter and the Rinse Arm. I re-used The Radiant Shields, Filter Plate, Lower Spray Arm Seals and the O-Ring. Much of my time was spent cleaning before re-assembly. Assembly was no problem. I ran the machine afterward with no problems and very good cleaning results. I ran the videos once before starting. They were very helpful, as were some other people's experiences.

lack of two wheels

  • Customer: Michael from Scottsdale AZ
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins

Replacement part has only 6 wheels. The original part has 8 wheels. The lack of the two extra wheels allows the dish rack to get stuck in the space between the inside of the dishwasher and the door. The extra set of wheels allows the rack to bridge the gap. It is a problem even if you put the rack in the other way around only a bit worse to deal with. The part was designed with four sets of wheels for a reason.

Rusted and broken tines on dishwasher racks

I looked through the pictures of parts and discovered I could order just the worst of the broken tines...front bowl tine with sleeves and rear bowl tine! I ordered them one day and they were delivered the next day....no special shipping! I was very happy with this solution and was able to install them very easily. My dishwasher is not perfect but it is much better than it was and I am sure this "repair" will mean Ii can use the dishwasher for several more years! Thank you!

Dishwasher Leaks

Installing the door gasket is relatively easy, it just pushes in place without any adhesive. Just make sure it is even on both sides
You can to pull it out and reinstall to even it all way around the door if needed.
You may also find a new gasket will make to door a little harder to close. I presume it will be easier to close over time.
I also installed a new float at the same time but that repair is very difficult, takes specialized tools and lots of patience.

This was as simple a repair as you will ever get, at least on a 16 year old Maytag like we have. Literally just take the old gasket out and put the new one in -- just make sure to look at the old gasket to ensure you are inserting the proper end of the new one into the channel, I almost put it in wrong, but then again I'm brain damaged where home repairs are concerned. The door is more difficult to close after I put the gasket in, so I may have to adjust the door closing mechanism just a tad.
