I ordered a new replacement basket. The new one is a little different but it fits in the same place and takes up the same amount of room in the dishwasher. It looks very nice too.

It was so easy to find the right part on the PartsSelect website. I just had to enter the manufacturer (Maytag) and model number and up popped skematics of all the parts available. I just clicked on the drawing of the basket and placed the order. It took less that 5 minutes. The part arrived 4 days later as promised. The repair took even less time than teh ordering. I simply took the old basket out and dropped in the new one.

I'm just happy to know there is a place that has such a user friendly website and stocks so many parts for older appliances. I had my house built in 1992 and several of the appliance are original. Fortunately I always keep the owners manuals for every piece of equipment so the model and serial numbers are readily available.

Over the years I had wheels and clips turn up missing. I could not find my model number. It was not where it was supposed to be so I used the great pictures to figure out what I was missing. I guessed right because they fit perfectly. I had three wheels missing on my lower rack. I cannot believe I messed around opening and closing it for so many years without these easily ordered wheels. It took me all of 2 minutes to add everything. The best part of this order was the shockingly FAST delivery time. I ordered the parts after midnight on Tuesday and they were delivered, at my doorstep, on Thursday...just regular delivery. GREAT JOB BY THIS COMPANY....I WILL RETURN!!

First of all, I removed the existing lower dishrack. That was a piece of cake! The part that was tricky was getting the spray arm out of the center so that it could be placed into the new dishrack. I finally figured out that I simply had to twist this piece (I think to the right) to remove it. I reversed this step to place the spray arm assembly into the new dishrack. And then VOILA...I just slid the new dishrack in place!

Ordered replacement basket online at much better price than available localy. When I recieved it discovered that it did not include the handle, but was suprised to see it labeled as "Genuine Maytag Parts" ( I realy expected a knock-off replacement part for the price difference). I was able to remove tha handle from the old basket and install it on the new one. Job done. No problem

Roller disconnected from upper rack, due to a cracked clip

Once I figured out how to get the endcap off the roller track (allow several minutes, because it was designed by some dork), I slipped the old roller off the track, put the new roller on, and clipped it to the rack. Then I put the track cap back on (really easy once you've figured out how to get it off) and it was good as new.

As for how the cap comes off, it's difficult to describe. But it may help you to know that the cap, despite what it looks like at first, is actually surprisingly long and folded on top of itself. Pulling it directly out doesn't work; you have to unfold it before there's any chance of getting it out.

5 of the 8 wheels on the lower dishwasher rack had broken off

I simply snapped the new wheel assemblies back on. The main thing I want to say is that I have never owned a dishwasher that required replacing wheels and I believe there is a design flaw in the wheel that they break so easily. If you look at the way they are mounted on the rack, eventually the weight of dishes on the rack will wear them out and break them. It cost me nearly $50 to replace them all. I bought extras because I know more will break in the future.

lower rack had rusted and tines were breaking off

The lower rack of my dishwasher was falling apart right before my eyes. Tines were breaking off and there was so much rust that my dishes were beginning to become stained. After reading the comments posted at PartsSelect, I decided to try replacing the rack instead of buying a whole new dishwasher. From the posted comments I was able to figure out that the spray tower could be easily removed if I pressed down on it and turned it counterclockwise. After removing the old rack and sliding in the new one, I simply reversed the order, pressing the plastic tower down and turning it clockwise. It was SO simple I was embarassed that I had waited so long to attempt it, and that I had considered replacing a perfectly good dishwasher just because the lower rack was falling apart! I'd also like to add that the rack came in two days! Great service, great price, great web site. Thanks!
