Bottom rack needed replacing

Just took it out of the box and slid it in.
Only problem I encountered, and I think it was due to the age of the dishwasher, was the newunit was not as deep as teh original rack. This will require a new method of loading dishes. Also, the new basket doesn't really fit well in the new rack.
Still cheaper than replacing a good cleaning dishwasher!

The utensil basket was old, bowed and the bottom was falling out.

I ordered a new replacement basket. The new one is a little different but it fits in the same place and takes up the same amount of room in the dishwasher. It looks very nice too.

CustomerCHRISTOPHER from Spalding, NE

Wash quality was getting bad

The upper arm was held in by a torx screw. The shoulder on the screw held the arm in place. Once removed I simply swapped parts and installed screw. The lower arm was held on by a plastic nut with knurled edges that you can remove by hand. The arm simply lifted off and I swapped arms again. The rollers are held on by a curled plastic lock that grips the wire basket.

Maytag makes a really crappy silverware basket. The bottom of ours fell apart the first year.

There was no repair to be done. Just replaced the defective basket with the new one.
I got the part two days after ordering it. Great service.

The bottom of our dishwasher's old utinsel basket broke out

It was so easy to find the right part on the PartsSelect website. I just had to enter the manufacturer (Maytag) and model number and up popped skematics of all the parts available. I just clicked on the drawing of the basket and placed the order. It took less that 5 minutes. The part arrived 4 days later as promised. The repair took even less time than teh ordering. I simply took the old basket out and dropped in the new one.

I'm just happy to know there is a place that has such a user friendly website and stocks so many parts for older appliances. I had my house built in 1992 and several of the appliance are original. Fortunately I always keep the owners manuals for every piece of equipment so the model and serial numbers are readily available.
