Our dishwasher was not heating up to dry dishes

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Wrench (Adjustable)

All steps were easy except the Maytag layout made it hard to get to the fittings to remove and reconnect the water line. After that we just moved the dishwasher from beneath the counter and laid it down on the front. Removing and testing the old heater element was easy. The hardest part of installing the element was the odd clips inside the dishwasher. I need to return the o-ring and nuts because you included them with the heating element.

Reviewing the process on You Tube saves a lot of time. It took more time to find the correct circuit breaker for the dishwasher than the repair itself; that easy. Thanks.

removed door liner and removed and replaced the electronic control board. reinstalled door liner and reconnected electrical power by closing the circuit breaker. Started the dishwasher and ran it through a normal wash cycle to flush out and clean the dishwasher. All operations were normal. Piece of cake repair thanks to your troubleshooting guide. Thanks for including the tech data with the replacement control board. Lawrence Faison

rinse water very dirty leaving crud on dishes

I first ran a cycle of clear glass to verify that there was something wrong. I pulled an exploded parts diagram off the internet to see what parts there were and to give me an idea how everything came apart. I slowly took piece by piece< keeping all screws seperated with the part they belonged with. I set the parts in the order they came out so I knew what way they would have to be returned to the machine. I cleaned and inspected all parts to ensure they were in working order. When I removed the accumulator filter I noticed all the screens were caked with what appeared to be soap scum. I then noticed one of the screens was tore away from the filters body about a half inch long. I decided to order the part(which was a sunday). The part was on my door step by tuesday morning( with standard shipping). I had the part reinstalled in 10 minutes. The hardest part of the whole job was getting all the slats on the filter to line up with the ones on the cover to be screwed onto it. They need to be lined up or the screws will not go in properly, which would be a whole different bag of worms. The job was seriously simple and the ease of ordering and receiving the part made it that much better. Thank you for being a great service to the service industry.

This was so simple. I took the screws out with the Torx Bit. This allows you to open the inside of the door. You'll see the wires and the back of the handle. **Be Sure to note which side the wires hook up to. I wasn't paying enough attention and had to figure out where the black and the white wires went after the fact.** Then, simply remove entire "T" shaped handle assembly. The new assembly comes with white wire covers with black backs, shaped like a rectangle. There are two prongs on each that need to be squeezed and gently rocked back and forth- not enough to break them- until it pops off. Then replace with the white. Replace with new. ** The handle will NOT line up on the outside until the entire proess is done, and you close the door so don't waste your time trying to figure out why!** Replace screws around the interior door and close. Easy breezy, it only took about 15 minutes, including time to run to the tool box a couple times.

Used a phillips head screwdriver and removed all of the screws on the inside of the door. Once I removed the panel the latch was free and I use the pliers to unplug the wires. I put the wires on the new handle and latch assembly, put it back in place, put the panel back and screwed it back down. Piece of cake ,only took about 5 to 10 minutes.

Needed to change panel over to SS to match frig

Tried to follow directions on PS website. Two mentioned job was easier if door springs were disconnected. Mine were enclosed so it made the job really tuff. First was that other posters didn't mention that you had to take all the controls off the top piece. Further, didn't mention that you HAD to do that to get to two additional screws beneath controls that hold the front panel on. When all the screws are removed, then the next major problem is sliding the old panel off the spring loaded arms. This can't be done without severely bending the bottom curled edge to let you pull it off the two spring loaded arms. I did this with a small screw driver to bend the lip up first, then took bent needle nose pliers and "peeled" the sheet metal away from the spring loaded arm. Then I could pull panel off the arms. Then the biggest problem came when trying to put new panel on both arms which of course are spring loaded and wanted to flip back to vertical at the slighted twitch in you process. I finally got it on the arms. Then had to put controls back together...and discovered that ribbon connector to front control panel had come loose from control box inside. Used both hands with thumbs and index fingers to gently push ribbon back into box. Worked ok. After putting all back together, dishwasher worked ok so ribbon connector problem was overcome. Unless a person can find an easy way to disconnect the door springs, this is not a job for a rookie DIYer.

Dishes weren't coming clean cause the water wasn't staying hot.

To be honest it was a very easy repair it actually took longer to disconnect and remove the dish washer from the cabinet than it did to install the heating element. Be sure to have towels ready cause when you tip the dish washer on its front to remove and re install the heating element water will leak out on to the floor.

Upper Rack Wheel Eroded

  • Customer: Brent from Lafayette, CO
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers

Just one of the upper rack wheels in my dishwasher was in really bad shape for some reason, eroded away so it wouldn't stay on the track, causing the rack to jam up as was pulled out or pushed in. Simply popped it off with a little twist by hand, and slide the new one in, with the help of some needle-nose pliers. Easy.

I recently noticed an unusual part protruding from the track for the upper rack. The upper track has been balky for some time. When I removed the part it was clear it was the part which contained ball bearings to make the rack slide smoothly. Since I had difficulty before with the rack stops I was familiar with how to remove the rack. When I did so I decided to replace both ball cages, all of the ball bearings and the rack stops which were broken and poorly repaired (by me). The job required no tools. Your company was helpful when I ordered the parts; the exploded drawings were easy to work with; and the minor confusion I had with my order was quickly fixed. Good Job! (both of us)
