The hardest part was getting the lid back off. I had tried using the dihxeasher while waiting for the spring. Once I figured that out, it was fairly easy. Once I got the longer pin out, it was just a matter of figuring which way to put the spring in. Took me a few tries without the instructions

Following the instruction video, I removed the door panel and the inner cover to expose the door switch. I disconnected the wires from the switch and removed the switch from the door. I then removed the handle from the switch and installed it into the new switch housing along with the new switches that I purchased from Parts select. I installed the new switch assembly, replaced the inner cover and the door panel. The repair was easy and took about 20 minutes to complete.

We took the hoses off, cleaned all the hard water deposits and screens. The water would fill once but not a second time. We ordered the water valve and valve switch. We put the new water valve on and "miracle" it worked perfectly. We didn't need to replace switch. Let me tell you this is one happy housewife now. Ordering the parts on-line was very easy and they arrived as they said they would. Thanks for the great service.

Replacing the door switches was easy. The video & directions are spot on. This did not fix my problem. Called a repair man. He came and found a broken wire right in the hinge between the main unit & the door. It was very easy to see if you were looking for it. Once you have the inside cover off, check the wire bundle that runs from the unit to the door. He just butt spliced the wire back together and I’m up & running again. He said this is very common in older machines.

Got all info from your site, thank you. I replaced the door gasket and water deflectors and I still had a small leak. Replaced the gromet and the o ring in the soap disp. And still had a small leak. I adjusted the door latch to close a little tighter and that solved the problem. You have a great site. Keep up the good work.

I had to get my son to twist off the spray tower, the otherwise the transition to our new racks was quite easy. I did have to look up on the internet Maytag site how to get the spray tower off and how to install a side piece on the upper rack. Easy to do however.

Ordered parts and referred to exploded component drawings on the website to install replacements. Videos were helpful. Be careful to check all plastic parts for deterioration so that you can order them all at once. I had to make two additional orders for rollers and retainers that looked fine, but were brittle and needed replacement.

Followed the video on your site. Removed old gasket, put in new one...easy, breezy! For good measure, since we weren't sure where the leak was coming from, installed a new water deflector as well, which was also extremely easy. Out with the old, in with the new and no leaks!!
