Door Latch Broken, Door Stuck Shut

Ordered the latch part Friday A.M., Saturday afternoon it arrived. My wife repaired it while I supervised. (She doesn't have a tool belt yet). It took longer to pry off the 2 switch connectors than it took to remove and replace all the screws. They were on there pretty good, so we used extra care. Now she's my "Handygirl". Works great. The price was lower than I could find locally too. Thanks for great service.

Dishwasher Not Cleaning Correctly

Hey I hope this helps someone. . I was quite frustrated with out little dishwasher. It almost seemed that the dishes would come out dirtier than when they went in. Turns out we have hard water and it did a number on the parts of the dishwasher. Luckily, the parts were cheap enough that I thought I would give em a try. Between that and something called "dishwasher magic" I had success! One thing I wished I did differently was that I should have purchased two (2) wash arm retainer clips. . . I re-used an old one but it would have been nice to have all new parts inside. Needless to say, our dishes now are super clean. I have 6 young kids so our dishwasher gets a real workout. I may have to purchase a water softener down the road but for now we'll roll the dice. Hope this helps!

I did not receive any instructions -- removed the screws from the unit - along the side - the big discovery was removing the black lining and finding additional screws to loosen. These are probably the only ones I needed to remove.Raised the feet on the dishwasher and then placed the new brackets. Re tightened the screws and I was the hero with my wife.Thanks Gene

Unplug electric, removed interior screws on door. Handle and door assembly simply unplugs, wrote down connection location description, model number, serial number. Went online to partselect.com and ordered. Within several days the new part arrived and installed part, reassemble and complete in a total of 7 minutes. I saved over $10 through partselect.com. Ken

My boyfriend easily took out the existing handle/latch and replaced with the new handle/latch. Partselect made it very simple to locate which handle/latch I needed, as I had the model # of my dishwasher. I called Customer Service to verify this part would fit with my model # and they said, 'yes,' with confidence. They were right! I will definitely use Partselect again.

My son-in-law made quick work of it - less than 10 minutes. Being a master mechanic he did beat the time of the 67 year old female but not by much! Seriously the part was quickly delivered, easy to install and everything went very well.We are very satisfied and pleased to save a repair bill.

Our dishwasher was not heating up to dry dishes

  • Customer: Claude from Helotes, TX
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

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.

Replaced electronic control board burned out. Service representative was extremely helpful. All husband did was check power, shut it off, took out old electronic control board and put in new and replaced screws. Working like a charm.

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.
