I slid the dishwasher out about a foot and easly replaced the Door Spring Linkage. I took more time to remove and replace the screws than it did to replace the Door Spring Linkage. Very easy repair that anyone can do.

Watched video, very helpful. Pulled dishwasher out a foot from counter, which was the most difficult part due to tight fit, carpet, and copper tube water connection. Once the washer was out it was easy to replace the linkage and while it was out did both sides.

I removed the inner plastic panel from the dishwasher door, and disconnected the two solenoid motors from the soap dispenser assembly. This made it possible to work on the door panel at a table. I disassembled the soap dispenser mechanism and scrubbed everything with a stiff nylon brush and then rinsed it off. I then rebuilt the dispenser mechanism using the new soap door latch and gasket and reinstalled the panel (after scrubbing all soap deposits from the area around the dishwasher door).

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.

I took the suggestion of a previous reviewer to bend the new part in. But instead of using pliers to remove the old part, I tried bending it to get it out. This was so that I could see how much force would be necessary to bend it without breaking it to get the new part in. I bent it in the middle and was able to get it unhooked from one side without too much force. To get the new piece in, first I made sure I had it lined up correctly. Then I inserted the circle over one of the side prongs to hold it and gently but firmly bent the piece in the middle until the circle on the other side could slip over the other prong. It was not bent enough to stay bent, just to compress it into the space and have it spring back to full length.

I found a short video on YouTube that showed me how easy it was to remove the old dishrack and install the new one. I would have never figured out how to get old diskrack out without watching short video clip. And, all I needed was my fingers to undo the end clips.

The Whirlpool page had a link to a YouTube step by step instruction with pictures. The dish rack stop was very non intuitive - without the YouYube, it would have been impossible

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.
