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.

Replaced both upper and lower Dishracks, the Parts Select video shows how to replace the top rack but doesn't mention the lower one. Had a bit of a problem trying to figure out how to remove the spout on the bottom rack. Finally figured out, twist it counter clockwise to remove it and turn it clockwise to reinstall it onto the new lower rack.

The lower dish rack has only six wheels three on a side the original had eight wheels four on a side. This new rack does not stay on track.Is there any way to add two more wheels .If not how can I return for the correct rack?

Whatever you do, don't call a repairman to do this simple replacement task. 1. Remove the lower basket. 2. Locate the round knurled nut holding the spray bar on. (use gloves or a channel lock pliers if it's corroded on) Lift off the spray bar. noting the 'flats' on the bottom of the spray bar. If the knurled nut has lots of corrosion, put it in a container of vinegar for a couple hours. Use screwdriver to remove the metal plates on the ends of the spray bar and install in new one. Then install new one in reverse order. A real piece of cake.
