AFTER VIEWING USLESS VIDEOS, I FINALLY READ OTHER COMMENTS AND DISCOVERED HOW EASY IT WAS TO JUST TWIST THE SPRAYER.

my bottom dishwasher rack was rusting away. I put off buying a new one for years because I thought that was too much money. My daughter told me it was cheaper than a new dishwasher.

I went online and found PartSelect, put in my model number (thinking no way would anyone one have the right part because the dishwasher was so old). PartSelect came up with the rack, I ordered it, still having doubts. It arrived in a matter of days and it fit. I had a problem with the water tower. I couldn't take it off the old rack. PartSelect had a customer online with the same problem with the tower. I followed his instructions, it came off the old rack and onto the new rack so easily. I'm a very old grandmother, and I did the whole process all by myself. That was a wonderful experience and my old dishwasher is like a new dishwasher. Thank you all so much.

The ironic thing is it wasn't broke! I had ordered new rollers, new belt and new tensioner, before I took the front off. The video was helpful. The tough part was reinstalling the tensioner as it did not screw down. But live and learn. I set the tensioner in place and used small wire to bring it over to the moter drive, then assembled the new belt together and cut the retaining wire.

removed old rack and inserted new one - it slid right in - no tools needed - The most remarkable thing about this whole process was the speed with which we received the replacement part. I ordered it in the late afternoon on a Friday, and it was delivered the next morning. Great service!

Appliance is at least 14 years old. All we had to do was put rollers on and place it in the dishwasher! The other great thing about PartSelect is that it ships same day...we had the part two days later. We will order from you again if any parts are needed! Thanks.

rusted plastic coated steel rack needs replacement

replacing the rack was easy - but first we had to swap out the plastic spay tower that twist-locks onto the new rack. My smart wife figured this one out, despite the lack of any trace of instructions (the less astute amature repairperson would have mangled the whole shootin' match attempting to make the change); that said, the rack was not a "one-to-one" match, as it lacked the original's high left sidewall and a few other minor differences that did not affeect the overall performance of the part - a not uncommon occurance in the aftermarket parts world.

I grabbed a hold of the old gasket and removed it. I then took the new gasket and set it in place on one corner. I inserted it around the groove and with just one adjustment for length, I took the round bottom of a spoon to set and smooth the gasket into place. No more leaks. 5 minute fix.

I watched the video when I ordered the part and then watched it again just before installing the door gasket. I pulled the existing gasket out of the channel. The air space inside the new and old gasket is triagular so make sure you take note which side of the gasket goes into the channel first(you'll understand when you see it). I wiped out the channel and gently fed the gasket into the dishwasher's channel with my fingers. Before I installed the new gasket the door latch closed with no resistance. Now I have to push the door in hard with my thumbs at the top of the door in the middle to get it to latch when I run the dishwasher. It all was so easy and there is not a drop of water leaking. The week before I ordered the door gasket I ordered and installed the tiny little gasket that seals the detergent door latch. I didn't realize anything was leaking at that time. The only reason it was discovered was because the detergent door wouldn't pop open to release the detergent and we were working on that issue. When taking the dishwasher door apart we noticed that the cardboard insulation was wet as well as the other insulation and could tell it was coming from the circular opening in the metal. We dried out the cardboard. Then cut off the bottom that had been wet. We cut a double thickness of cardboard to size from a large box. Then taped it on to the bottom of the piece that hadn'et gotten wet. It's important to have that cardboard intalled because it protects the outside of the door from getting dented as well as for sound. When the new little gasket was delivered we installed it and the detergent door worked fine again. We ran the dishwasher through a cycle and that's when we discovered that the door gasket was leaking. I wish I would have ordered both gaskets at the same time. If I would have read the postings on this website when I ordered the detergent door gasket, I would have ordered the door gasket. Oh well, everything worked out. I just spent an extra shipping charge. Still an enormous savings over hiring a Maytag repairman.

Pulled out old gasket, checked to see which side faced the door, found the middle of the new gasket, started at top middle and pushed the gasket into place. Easy as pie!

Removed the old door gasket. Adjusted the new gasket to fit evenly on both sides. Removed the seven hex screws. Two nuts holding the cover over the backside of the cover for the soap dispenser. Removed the old grommet, replace the new one. Cleaned up the inside and replace screws. Truly was easy.
