This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
I pulled the dishwasher out & watch it complete 1 cycle : water was leaking at a through hole used to secure the upper dish rack roller to the cabinet : the nut & seal holding the roller was loose allowing water to drip down the outside of the cabinet under the insulation.: water dripped onto the belt causing belt to slip : many water marks around the pump ; as a precaution i replaced the pump bottom seal & the pump to chassis gasket : I also checked the other 3 rolles ; replaced cracked top flange & installed a more flexable water supply hose .

I removed the old flange pieces before ordering the new one, then repositioned the washer after attaching the new one to the washer top. I then attached the flange to the counter top resulting in a more stable appliance. It was simple to remove the screws and install the new flange.
Ours is a portable with butcher top. Three screws under the front edge allow the top to be slid forward and off. Then it is obvious which screws release the old flange.The latch hook needs to be separated from the metal strip and inserted into the front of the flange through the slot, then secured back onto the metal strip.Don't tighten it too much until you get the thing back together. Then adjust it so the door closes tightly and make it tight. If that machine screw works loose it allows the latch to move sideways which will widen the slot--not good.It should be checked for tightness every year unless you want to replace that plastic part again. It should have been made of metal to begin with. I'm surprised Maytag would use plastic in such a part.Not a difficult repair unless you are a total klutz with a screwdriver.
First of all, ordering the parts from PartsSelect.com was very easy to do, I found and paid for the part in about 10 minutes with only the model number.Removed the screws holding the old flange. Pulled it out and put the new one in its place. Installed the screws.After I was finished I looked at the instructions. I'm glad I didn't look at them prior to starting. They were actually confusing.
