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.

Replaced both upper and lower Dishracks, the Parts Select video shows how to replace the top rack but doesn't mention the lower one. Had a bit of a problem trying to figure out how to remove the spout on the bottom rack. Finally figured out, twist it counter clockwise to remove it and turn it clockwise to reinstall it onto the new lower rack.

First problem was finding out whether Dishwasher had power at all, since nothing happened when you tried to start it, and I really didn't want to have to pull it out and disconnect the power cables at the box on the back of the dishwasher. Used the video instructions from PartSelect and opened the inside door panel and exposed the switch, then put a continuity tester (light with two prongs) across opposite sides of switch (white one side, black the other). With the test light on, knew I had power and was able to locate circuit breaker to turn off power to dishwasher, all without dismounting it from the cabinet at all. From there, followed the video. Hardest part was disconnecting wires from the old switch, which was slightly corroded. Plier trick on video didn't do it, and had to use large screw driver blade to carefully lever wires off of the switches. NOTE: Look at the new switches before doing this, and you'll be able to visualize how the wire clips slip on the switch connectors. Great site, and dishwasher started right up after the repair.

Dishwasher would run then turn off. When touching the handle it would start up again.

I didn't have a clue how to fix this dishwasher so I did a search for Maytag parts and found your site. It looked like the door switch was the likely problem. I watched the video that Steve did showing how easy it is to fix and ordered the parts. I got the parts in the mail a couple days later. I did the repair in about 15 minutes. Just pulling the connectors off the old switch took some strength, just like Steve said. Put the switch in and back together and bingo the dishwasher works like new. Thanks Steve and PartSelect!

Was so easy. I am an old grandmother. I looked for parts for the dishwasher and happened on this site. When describing the problem, I said "won't start". The part number came up and I bought it. Took about 3 days for part to arrive and less than 15 min to install. So easy and if I had problems there was a step by step guide on internet. I am 100% satisfied and recommend for anyone even if you are not handy.

I just opened the package, pulled out the baskets, separated them and put them directly in the dishwasher. The video showed the part and size of the baskets which was very helpful. The delivery was EXCELLENT!!! I would purchase from PartSelect again!
