Broken bottom on silverware basket and broken hinge on rack

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.

CustomerEUGENE from MADISON IN

Silverware basket was broken on the bottom

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!

CustomerWilliam from Mundelein IL

Corroded rack and broken basket

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.

CustomerNora from Wilmington DE

Bottom of silverware basket broke

received new basket without a basket handle; had to remove handle from old basket & attach it to new basket; took 2 separate tries to remove old handle & each try took about an hour; used screwdriver & pliers but had to be careful not to break handle; eventually used dimes to pry open & hold the attached sections of the handle open in order to free the handle from the old basket; we sure hope the new basket lasts a lot longer than the 2 years that the old basket lasted before it broke.

CustomerSharon from Fairfield CA

Bottom of basket fell apart & silverware would fall though holes

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!

CustomerMelisa from San Antonio TX

Silverware basket was cracked/broken and spoons etc. Fell through

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.

CustomerReavis from Royal Oak MI

Maytag baskets fall apart and need to be replaced

Removed old unit, snapped handle onto new unit and installed it
NOTE: 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.

CustomerM. from Baltimore MD

The original basket had holes broken in the bottom

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.

Plastic in silverware basket cracked so utensils kept falling through/getting stuck

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.
