Ordered a new basket. Tossed out the old one. Done
The "repair" was actually a replacement. My wife did it. She took out the old, damaged basket and dropped in the new, replacement basket. She removed the slotted lids because she doesn't think they are necessary and she doesn't like them. I got the old basket for holding small items in my workshop. The lids will be thrown away, unless I can come up with a use for them.
I removed old hinge and snapped in new one.The new basket was identical to the original and PartSelect.com was the only source I found that had it in stock. I took the old handle off the broken basket with a screw driver and snapped it in place on new basket, job done.
The only problem was the handle arrived about week before the basket because of an inventory problem. The fix was to insert the handle into the basket and we were ready to go. No tools and no mess taking a minute or two to accomplish and it is as good a new. Thanks!
Ordered silverware basket, placed into the proper position. Easy as pie.
Although the (top) dishrack assembly included the nylon wheeles, it was easier to replace the old one by disengaging it from its wheels and installing the new rack on the old wheels kept in the slider track. The snap hook that held each wheel to the old rack was popped loose (finger pressure) and the old rack removed. The new rack was held in place and each of the four wheels snapped to it. Each wheel fits into a wire post on the basket and the plastic hook snaps onto the wire frame. The most difficult part of the 'repair' was removal of the handle from the old silver ware basket. I used screwdrivers to simultaneously pry the four tabs of the halde out of the slots on the basket and pulled (hard!) the handle off. It snapped easily into place on the new basket.
pulled out old door gasket and on the third try it fit perfectly.took out 8 screws on the door, seperated the plaster inner door from the outer. undid 2 screws to replace the dispenser door latch gasket.dropped the new silverware basket into the dishwasher and put the 8 screws back in.it closes a bit tigher now, but it does not drip...Thank you...
Replacement basket did not include handle so needed to pry old handle off broken unit to use on the new one. Used screw driver to pop loose clips which attached to basket. Had to stick tooth picks broken in half under them to hold out until all four clips were opened at once - then handle could be pulled off. Easily snapped it back on to the new basket and repair was done. Can't get any easier than this!
seeing as how my husband was out of town, I inserted a regular flatware knife in each of the four slots that held the handle in place on the basket. I then slowly pushed down on the handles of the knives on opposite sides of each other to unlock the handle from two slots on the basket and then went on to push down on the other two flatware knives on the opposite sides...sure enough, the handle came right off...less than 5 minutes in all to take the old handle off from the old basket and then snap it into place onto my newly acquired basket.
Removed old unit, snapped handle onto new unit and installed itNOTE: THE DIMENSIONS SHOWN ON THE ORDERING GRID ARE NOT ACCURATE. THE UNIT IS MORE LIKE 9 INCHES LONG INSTEAD OF 11 AND 6 INCHES WIDE AS OPPOSED TO 7.This error occured on several websites so I suspect that Maytag's specs are off.
When the (overpriced) replacement silverware basket arrived (rapidly, within a few days of my ordering) I was shocked and angry that the handle for the basket was not included--nor were instructions included as to how to remove the old handle from the old basket in order to fasten it to the new basket. Therefore, I spent a considerable amount of time trying to pry the handle off the old one, which was quite tricky: There were four slots which held the plastic "catches", and they had to be pushed out simultaneously. I had to fiddle with it for at least a half hour, trying various implements, until I found that I could push them out simultaneously by wedging butter knives into the slots and then easing the handle off. (I was careful to position myself so that I wouldn't slip and stab myself with the blunt butter knife.) After that, the handle snapped fairly easily into the new basket's slots. In the end, while I was glad to be able to recycle the old handle, I wish that the basket and shelves were made more durably so they wouldn't have to be replaced, or that they could be replaced at a more reasonable price.

da basket don't come with rections so you gota figer it out yor sef. I tride pullen the handle off and it work then I tride pushen it on the other basket and it work to. Then i tride swapen dem and it work so thats how ya doit
The basket did not include the handle (something I didn't notice when I ordered it). I simply removed the handle from the old basket and placed it on the new basket. Having utensils falling through was really getting old. This was $25 well spent.
