CustomerJesse from San Jose, CA

Supports for middle rack of dishwasher broke

The middle (plates and silverware) rack of my maytag dishwasher broke. The supports for the wheels were plastic hubs that bore the weight of the rack.

About a year after owning the dishwasher, the front two plastic wheel hubs that support the rack broke.

I ordered the left and right Rack Adjuster Assembly which included the main T shaped support rail including the two wheels. The good news is that these hubs are METAL which should not break like the weak plastic hubs of the previous version.

I removed about 4-5 screws from the original assembly, and installed the new rack adjuster assembly and replaced the screws. About 20 minutes total for both sides.

I also replaced the tracks since mine were somewhat bent after the original supports broke.

Very nice to have a fully operational / sturdy middle rack again on this dishwasher.

Middle rack; broken wheel on slide that allows you to pull rack in and out

The replacement wheels are metal, which is much better. However, you have to buy the entire adjuster assy.--so $32 for a $1.50 wheel, but what can you do? You need a star bit in order to remove the five screws on the plastic cover. Be sure to pay attention to how the adjuster lever is inserted, but it's not at all complex. A very quick and easy process.

Top rack wheel broke, dishwasher didn't run right.

Removed the rack from the dishwasher. Removed Torx head screws holding the stabilizer in place. Pulled the two sections apart. Cleaned out the junk and replaced the stabilizer bar. New one had wheels with steel axles, so this should last much longer than the plastic ones. Put the rack back into the dishwasher. Ready to go.

The plastic piece that held the rack to the side of the slider broke

First I removed the screws and disasempled the plastic covering that held the slide in place. I then replaced the rack adjuster and replaced the screws.

This was exciting for me as I was not about to wait for my husband to do it as I had a load of dishes in the sink just waiting for it to be done!

It was amazingly simple and the hardest part was remembering where in the rack it was to be replaced! I was back in commission within 15 minutes (It would have been 10 if I had placed it right the first time!!

CustomerWade from Frazier Park, CA

Broken wheel on oem assembly of the level adjuster for the top rack

It was very easy to install, took maybe 5 mins if that, and works like a charm -

*Remove "caps" from ends of the slide rails by pressing in the tab, this will allow you to remove the rack entirely -

*Remove the rack from main dishwasher body -

*Remove original torx screws -

*Remove the assembly, which comes apart in 2 sections, and note location as you do it ( I counted how many "rungs" from the nearest corner -

*Keeping the "inner" section, replace the "outer" section with the new piece -

*Fit the new piece and the original piece back together with the rack in between -

*Screw the torx screws (which you kept right?) back in -

*Slide the rack back intothe slide rails -

*Replace the end caps on the rails -

***Et voila! you're done, and happy to not be ripped....again.

Many outfits in my area would NOT sell the part and wanted to come install it themselves for as much as $250, what creeps!!

Any housewife could and should do this, and although I'm pretty handy, this is very definitely the kind of thing homeowners should do themselves if for no other reason than to have the satisfaction of knowing they didn't get ripped off by callous and immoral repair services.
