Watched on site video. Very helpful as it explained how to remove the upper and lower baskets to get at the upper cabinet nut. How to remove the nut and use a socket to compress the retainer rams so they would pass easily through the hole in the spray arm. Retainer nut replacement 1 minute. Removing and replacing baskets in machine another 5 to 10 minutes.

The spray arm was badly limed up, so I cleaned out the spray holes, inserted the retainer and snapped the arm in place. Works perfectly. Thanks!!

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.

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.

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.

It was very easy. Simply remove old seal with a pair of needle nose pliers. Clean or scrap any build-up from old seal location and then push-in the new door seal. Close door and let the new seal form to the door.

WE installed a new door gasket. However the machine still had a leak only on the left side. Called a tech and he came and said the gasket was installed backwards. Apparently the original one was also because we installed the new gasket exactly the way the old one was. We are all set now.

Pulled the old gasket. Cleaned gasket channel very well. Centered middle of new gasket with the door latch. Then worked gasket in both directions to both ends. Closed the door and left with door tight for several hours to allow it to seat with the new gasket. When use was resumed the leak, at least to this point, has stopped.

Pulled the old gasket out, put the new one in place.Used a screwdriver and fingers to push the new gasket firmly into its seat. Repair done. I've done a few repairs in my day, none easier than this.

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.

This was as simple a repair as you will ever get, at least on a 16 year old Maytag like we have. Literally just take the old gasket out and put the new one in -- just make sure to look at the old gasket to ensure you are inserting the proper end of the new one into the channel, I almost put it in wrong, but then again I'm brain damaged where home repairs are concerned. The door is more difficult to close after I put the gasket in, so I may have to adjust the door closing mechanism just a tad.
