Cracked front panel from sharp object. Broken roller on top rack

First I removed the 7 set screws to separate the front from the inside front panel. I then removed all the screws from the top of the panel that I was replacing. Making sure keeping which wires went where and what plastics covered what parts. I needed help holding the inside front panel up while working on the changing part. I used a piece of heavy string and tied the top panel to the cabinet above. I put a heavy weight on the front panel to keep it down - it kept springing up. After changing all the screws I put on the new panel and repeated the screwing backwards. With the panel came the 2 clips and a styrofoam rectangle that fit in the space between the panels. I didn't think the handle was in place right until I put it all together and realized when I closed the door it clicked into place. The panel was blinking, I pushed "OFF" and then did a rinse cycle. It worked. The rack rollers were the wrong size but after calling parts select they were able to send the right ones and it is like new. Saved a service call.

CustomerTodd from Powell OH

Original wheels were broken

I first removed the rail end caps by bending open the rail ends. They easily come off. The wheels slide out of the rack and the part snapped on to the rack removed. I used a screw driver to pry them off. New wheels are slid into the rail and snapped to the rack. End caps put back into place and rail tips bent back. Very easy.

CustomerJeffrey from Wilson NC

Upper rack roller cracked then broke

First removed the end cover and clip on the end of the rack slide. Used a flat head screwdriver to push in the clip and carefully pried it out. Then using the same screwdriver, pried up on the rack roller clip attached to the dish rack. Once clip was free of the rack, slid the rack roller off through the front of the slider. Slid the new rack roller into the slider and snapped the roller clip onto the dish rack in the same place the old one was. Carefully twisted the plastic end cover and clip back onto the rack slider. Job complete. The trickest part of the job is removing the rack slider end cover.

CustomerDuane from Seattle WA

Two upper rack rollers were broken

Used ascrewdriver to bend the metal rail that the roller rolls on. The part that needed to be bent holds the end cap on. Once bent, the end cap pops off. The the old roller can be removed and the new roller instsalled. The rail then needs to be re-bent.

Front plastic piece on both top level slides wouldnt come off

It would have been nice, not being a dishwasher repair man, that when the new parts came, there were a set of instructions included on how to install them. There must have been a special tool that Maytag uses to repair these items, and I ended up having to break the pieces off in order to install the new parts.. this was a shame.

I installed the rollers that allow the top tray to slide in and out of the dishwasher so I can lay glasses and pans on that shelf... There are 2 plastic white pieces in front of each slide that must come off in order to slide out the old parts and in with the new.
But I had to twist each plastic side real hard and break them to get the new parts in.. now I have a mess...
