the repair was so easy. I called my local maytag repair man and they want 85.00 dollars for the call and 6.00 a piece for the parts. well really. so i thought how hard could it be? I ordered the parts from Part select and fixed it myself. it took a whopping 5 minutes, 1) un snap the clips at the end of the sliding metal bars and slide out the top rack and remove it.2) take old parts off slide bars by unsnapping them and pulling them off replace them with the snapped together new parts each part has 2 pieces and they will slide one in the designated place there are 2 on each side3) Replace the upper rack swing the clips to secure the rack and then replace the plastic pieces at the ends of the metal bars. Saved 88.00 bucks took me 5 minutes .

Water Leaking from pump hose

  • Customer: Robert from De Pere WI
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

We discovered water leaking from the underside of the dishwasher. A closer inspection revealed that a pinhole had opened up in the rubber coupling at the bottom of the top shower pump hose. This piece is permanently attached to the pump hose, so you have to replace the whole thing. Repairing the dishwasher was an easy and straightforward affair as many other reviewers have described. The biggest difference between my experience and others was the presence of a cloth-like covering over the entire tub of the dishwasher. I assume this was either a thermal or sound insulation of some kind. To access the shower pump hose, it was necessary to remove the covering just enough to reach everything. The cover was held in place by some flexible black plastic pins. All that was needed was to work these back and forth until they slipped out of the underlying metal structure. Once I had the insulation pulled back it was a few quick minutes and the dishwasher was up and running.

Water was leaking from the side and bottom of our dishwasher

Our dishwasher has two gaskets, one around the top and one on the bottom. We ordered these two pieces with the help of staff at PartSelect who were very helpful and savvy. The gasket around the top part was very easy, had to be pulled out and replaced with the new one. We made sure the gasket went in exactly as we pulled it out with the thicker side inside the groove. We had to struggle with the bottom gasket that was stuck due to lots of hard water deposits. We cleaned first with lime-remover and then pulled out the rubber gasket from the bottom and pushed in the new one in the same direction. We had to do this twice before we got it situated. Then we loaded the dishwasher with cleaner and ran the cycle. No more water leaking out the sides.! Success!

I replaced the mounting strip and plate. Then I pressed on each mounting strip wheel and reinserted the rack onto its rails. Replace the rail end caps and the rack slide in and out as it did when it was working properly.

Motor runs, no water sounds, poor cleaning

Disassembled spray arm the way the website describes. Found an amazing accumulation of scale and soap scum. Everything was seriously gunked up. Cleaning and rodding out the spray arms and pump housing screens takes a minute. Be careful not to break or puncture the screens. Dont try slapping the pump housing filter on the driveway. Its brittle and will break. Suggest buying a new one anyway. Its nearly impossible to clean. Simply clean it all up and re-assemble. Oh and bask in the praise from your wife.

Not cleaning properly due to clogged parts.

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

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.

The lower dish rack was not a duplicate.It was a replacement with 2 less wheels

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.
