Heard a grinding noise when the dishwasher was running

  • Customer: Robert from Key West, FL
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

I twice watched the 5 minute video on PartSelect on how to repair the Discharge Pump Housing. I disassembled as instructed. One thing I did that the video did not suggest is that I marked the alignment of all parts with a pencil before removing any screws. In the end it only mattered on the main housing that covers the filter. That has to be put back on the way it came off. The repair is complete and for under $50 the dishwasher is running great and quieter than I can ever remember.

Replacement part has only 6 wheels. The original part has 8 wheels. The lack of the two extra wheels allows the dish rack to get stuck in the space between the inside of the dishwasher and the door. The extra set of wheels allows the rack to bridge the gap. It is a problem even if you put the rack in the other way around only a bit worse to deal with. The part was designed with four sets of wheels for a reason.

It took less then 10 minutes to rplace the new gasket. I think that Maytag is way ahead of the competion on this. The Dishwasher is now back to working and no more leaks.

Broken wheel on upper rack and missing rack stops

  • Customer: Robert from Madison, AL
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Bought extra parts incase I messed up. Fitted the wheel to the rack fairly quickly. Had to remove one rack stop, with a pair of pliers, in order to completely remove the rack from the moveable tracks. Folded over one of the rack stops and locked it in place completely. This is the wrong thing to do as it will not slide into the end of the moveable track. The trick is to partially fold the rack stop and start it into the moveable track. Then when the rack stop is inside the moveable track you can finish completing the folding of the rack stop. Once folded completely it is impossible to get the part unfolded.

I followed the video provided with the Order Acknowledgement. Very Very simple and easy to do. This is without a doubt the best company I have ever dealt with online. Prompt, quick delivery and very professional. The only mistake I made was not ordering the O ring for the soap dispenser. I am in the process of ordering that right now. This is the go 2 place for appliance repairs for sure. You won't be disappointed in any way.

The gasket is press fit in a channel around the door

Orient the gasket so that the more squishable hollow side of the gasket faces the door, and check that the length is sufficient to fill ths entire channel. The less compressible side goes into the channel, which requires some skill and strength to seat well. The flat portion of the more or less square gasket has two edges to it. What works best is to put the edge that is toward the inside of the dishwasher into the channel with your fingers, and then press in the other edge firmly with the small spatula of about 2 or 2and 1/2 inches until you can no longer see that edge. This is the visual indication it is seated. in the corners you may only be able to use a corner of the spatula.
