Removed the screws to the front panel along the inside of the door. Replaced the broken part with the new one. The only glitch was I needed a screwdriver to pry one end of the new part to seat into the hole where its installed. Replaced the screws. Job complete in 15 mins.

We ordered the replacement part for our Maytag model and when it came we saw that it was different than the original part. The original part had 8 wheels with a higher left hand side. The replacement part had only 6 wheels and no higher side. The replacement part would not pull in and out evenly and was a bit too narrower. We called Parts Select and told them our problem and they are going to refund us in full and take back the part they sent. Alas we will have to buy a new dishwasher. We would use Part Select in the future for replacement parts.

The dishwasher was not getting dishes clean

We had tried to use dish washer cleaners, and they would work for a time, but we started spending more money on cleaner than we wanted. I ordered and then I replaced the lower spray arm. It took a little effort to get the top screw off, due to hard water deposits. The new one went on very easily, just screwed right in like the old one. It's working great and I really don't mind not getting a new one or paying for a service call!!!

rinse dispenser was clogged and unusable.

  • Customer: Stuart from Rockaway NJ
  • Difficulty: Really easy

I remove the inner door panel, disconnected two quick release connectors, unscrewed the old part from the inner panel and installed the new one.

The new part arrived quickly and was the perfect match.

removed motor pump assembly, worked my way down from the top, found problem ,ordered parts. put back together it was real easy,replaced back into unit. turned on water and power. runs perfectly.

Door lock would not engage. So since the door wouldn't lock, the dishwasher wouldn't run. (it's safety mechanism)

I removed the door panel by unscrewing the 12 allen screws and found that the handle hinges broke & latch assembly locking gear was worn down...just normal wear & tear. this diagnostic process just took 45 minutes...remove the door, identify the problem, remove the parts, reassemble the door. I then ordered the parts online.

Once the parts arrived, it took me less than 45 minutes to re-remove the door, reconnect the 4 wires to latch assembly, snap the latch handle into place, and reassemble the door.

Stinky dishwasher

When I tried to remove the hold down screw for the impellar, the impellar broke in half. I actually did npt need to go this far with disassembly as the problem was with water being retained in the rinse arm assembly and stagnating. This was due to calcium buildup clogging the drain holes. Clearing the holes resolved the problem.

Old retainer was broken and spray difuser fell out.

Retainer easily holds spray difuser in place. I simply pressed the retainer into place and it fixed the probem.

Dishes weren't getting clean

  • Difficulty: Easy

Using the break down view suppled by the PartSelect website I removed the parts covering the broken pump impala. The busted impala also scored the pump housing, which also needed to be replaced. For added measure, I replaced the O rings I encountered (alway a good thing to do while your in there). The shaft of the motor is rusted and I needed to break off the last of the impala with small chisel and some light taps. Before reassembling I used some fine grit sandpaper on the shaft, don't go wild here, a tight fit is better than a sloppy one. Total time on the repair wasn't that long. (But don't tell the wife, it bought me a cupple quarters of football!)

Dishwasher started to make a grinding noise and was very loud

I disconnected the dishwasher and started to take the impeller assembly apart but could not get it all apart. Went on line to start looking for the parts and came to Partselect and they had and exploded view of the the whole inside assembly and I saw what was wroung, some parts had broken and melted together. With this picture I was able to see what had happened and able to get it all apart. Ordered the bad parts, got them within a week (this was over the hoildays), took about 15 minutes to get the new parts in and the dishwasher running. It runs great now, very quiet, it's like a new dishwasher for $30.
P.S. I had to order some extra parts because one of my dogs was helping me and chew them up.

The upper basket was falling apart

popped the two end caps off of the runners (the hardest part of the installation was figuring out how to pop them without braking them). Turns out just using a flat screw driver to start opening the cap lock did the trick. Once the end caps were off it was just a matter of rolling the old one off and the new one on and then putting the end caps back on.

The new basket wasn't an exact match, it's lighter weight and doesn't have the exact same configuration as far as the rows of tines. This will do us fine until it's time to replace the unit.
