Please be aware the basket shown on this site is the original basket that came with the dishwasher. The basket they sent is not original. It is the dark grey basket found on every other site when searching for this item. You can save yourself some cash buying this non original basket from at least a half dozen other sites.

Slid washer out from cabinet after disconnecting drain hose from garbage disposal and unplugging from electrical outlet. Was necessary to lay washer on side to disconnect drain hose from the dishwasher. Have towels ready as you will likely have some leftover water in hose & dishwasher. Used tape to secure insulation pad to washer so it would not catch on the side and top of cabinet when sliding back in place. Easy fix.

Mice were living behind and on top of the dishwasher and destroyed the pad. Had to throw it away. Ordering you was easy, and the pad fit perfectly.

Normal wash cycle would start, run for 20 seconds, then pause and repeat 3 times then stop all together. Other wash cycle buttone were inactive ion the control panel

Opened the door, removed the 11 screws (torks) holding the inside door panel on, lifted the panel and took a pic of the wiring connections for reassembly, then disconnected about 5 wire harnesses between the doors and on the control board, set inner door panel aside. Removed three hex head screws on control panel, depressed tabs holding circuit board in place, replaced with new panel and reassembled. The other parts were just snap on inside the dishwasher except for the inlet which is for future replacement as my lower sprayer arm is still functioning but is wearing out. Now the problem is fixed, and all buttons on the control panel function as well

I simply removed old lower dishrack from dishwasher and discarded. Then I removed new lower dishrack from box and installed it into dishwasher, no tools necessary. How easy is that?! New lower dishrack is a perfect replacement and now our dishwasher is good to go. Thank you PartSelect for your fast service.

Our dishwasher was not heating up to dry dishes

All steps were easy except the Maytag layout made it hard to get to the fittings to remove and reconnect the water line. After that we just moved the dishwasher from beneath the counter and laid it down on the front. Removing and testing the old heater element was easy. The hardest part of installing the element was the odd clips inside the dishwasher. I need to return the o-ring and nuts because you included them with the heating element.

Dishes weren't coming clean cause the water wasn't staying hot.

  • Customer: Jesse from Delavan WI
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

To be honest it was a very easy repair it actually took longer to disconnect and remove the dish washer from the cabinet than it did to install the heating element. Be sure to have towels ready cause when you tip the dish washer on its front to remove and re install the heating element water will leak out on to the floor.

rinse water very dirty leaving crud on dishes

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.

Dishes not getting clean

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).
