This is almost a joke. It took 5 seconds to remove the old silverware basket by lifting it from the bottom Rack. Then I spent another 5 seconds to lower the new basket onto the lower rack of the dishwasher. I was a little miffed because the new basket did not match the photo on the Parts Select website, which photo seemed to match the old basket exactly. However it fits, and the wife likes the design of new one better than the old one.

I simply removed everything from the bottom on the inside of the dishwasher, required a philips and torque head bits. removed the chopper that was plastic and replaced it with the new parts that I ordered, the original seal was fine so I left it but I saved the new one so if ever needed, it's available to me. The whole process was extremely easy even though it had to be accomplished leaning over the open door and I am an extremely large man, Odd thing though was, I called 2 appliance repair companies and when I explained the symptons, they both told me it was a bad motor and it would be wiser to purchase a new dishwasher. I did my own diagnosis by taking everything encluding the chopper off and putting a piece of ducttape on the motorshaft like a flag, pushed start and then opened the door and to my amazement the flag was spinning, sooooooo, wasn't a bad motor and through further examination, I noticed the threads were stripped out of the plastic chopper, an oversight in the design from Maytag but my parts ordered from this company resolved my issue in a timely manner and expense, Even though $62 seemed a tad high for a part known to be under designed, it was much cheaper than a new dishwasher and made of metal, never to fail again, THANKS PARTS SELECT !!!!!!!! YOU SAVED MY DISHPAN HANDS !!!!!! Yip P.S. I saved their website for futher reference since my whole kitchen has Maytag appliances.

Stripped threads on plastic motor shaft

  • Customer: charles from Orange TX
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

I watched the youtube video and followed the steps. The first time I tried it without taking the motor out because I didn't want to spill water on the floor, but I wasn't able to tighten the new motor shaft all the way so nothing lined up and it didn't work. Second time I followed instructions exactly and it worked like a charm. This is the second repair I have made to this dishwasher that was given to me for free because the door latch was broken. I fixed that problem for around $12.00. This time it broke because something metal got jammed in the motor causing the threaded shaft to strip. This repair cost around $80.00. Still the cheapest, nicest dishwasher that I could ask for. A+++ for partselect.com on price, service, and delivery. Thanks.

DW leaving dirt in bottom of glasses

  • Customer: suzanne from Church Hill TN
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

The original problem that brought me to Parts select was a broken wheel on the top tray. While searching for part #s I came across several descriptions of dishes not clean . The videos available on line here were very detailed. This encouraged me to go ahead and order the parts. They arrived soon and were accurate to my order. The video on replacing the seal and chopper walked me through the entire job very clearly. Going slow and carefully keeping track of al screws I replaced the chopper, impeller and the filter. The filter did have a tear in the screening which allowed dirty water back up into the dishwasher.

We recently purchased a new home and it didn't matter how hot we ran the water in the sink before starting the dishwasher, the dishes, especially glasses, were filthy. Extra rinse cycles, pots and pans cycle, nothing worked. After finding this site, we took the chance on what the troubleshooter recommended and bought the accumulator filter and wash impeller. The parts came so fast! We followed the videos on this site step by step and we were successfully able to replace the filter and impeller. The impeller was COATED in nasty slimy grossness; it was obvious the previous owners never rinsed their dishes before running the dishwasher. After replacing these two parts, we have clean dishes! We have switched from tablets to liquid detergent which also helped (not sure why, tablets have worked at our old house just fine).

I first ran a cycle of clear glass to verify that there was something wrong. I pulled an exploded parts diagram off the internet to see what parts there were and to give me an idea how everything came apart. I slowly took piece by piece< keeping all screws seperated with the part they belonged with. I set the parts in the order they came out so I knew what way they would have to be returned to the machine. I cleaned and inspected all parts to ensure they were in working order. When I removed the accumulator filter I noticed all the screens were caked with what appeared to be soap scum. I then noticed one of the screens was tore away from the filters body about a half inch long. I decided to order the part(which was a sunday). The part was on my door step by tuesday morning( with standard shipping). I had the part reinstalled in 10 minutes. The hardest part of the whole job was getting all the slats on the filter to line up with the ones on the cover to be screwed onto it. They need to be lined up or the screws will not go in properly, which would be a whole different bag of worms. The job was seriously simple and the ease of ordering and receiving the part made it that much better. Thank you for being a great service to the service industry.

Thank You PartSelect for making this repair project simple and stress free. The exploded diagram of the appliance was clear and consise. The parts list was very helpfull. Showing me which parts were the most replaced gave me the confidence to order, reducing the prospect of having to return items ( always a pain point ). Parts arrived in just a few days. Followed the instructions on the video. Dishwasher was back in operation in no time and passed an overly thourgh dish inspection. Your site is amazing and is on my favorites tool bar. Thanks Agian !!!
