Watched video, very helpful. Pulled dishwasher out a foot from counter, which was the most difficult part due to tight fit, carpet, and copper tube water connection. Once the washer was out it was easy to replace the linkage and while it was out did both sides.

I slid the dishwasher out about a foot and easly replaced the Door Spring Linkage. I took more time to remove and replace the screws than it did to replace the Door Spring Linkage. Very easy repair that anyone can do.

I watched the video when I ordered the part and then watched it again just before installing the door gasket. I pulled the existing gasket out of the channel. The air space inside the new and old gasket is triagular so make sure you take note which side of the gasket goes into the channel first(you'll understand when you see it). I wiped out the channel and gently fed the gasket into the dishwasher's channel with my fingers. Before I installed the new gasket the door latch closed with no resistance. Now I have to push the door in hard with my thumbs at the top of the door in the middle to get it to latch when I run the dishwasher. It all was so easy and there is not a drop of water leaking. The week before I ordered the door gasket I ordered and installed the tiny little gasket that seals the detergent door latch. I didn't realize anything was leaking at that time. The only reason it was discovered was because the detergent door wouldn't pop open to release the detergent and we were working on that issue. When taking the dishwasher door apart we noticed that the cardboard insulation was wet as well as the other insulation and could tell it was coming from the circular opening in the metal. We dried out the cardboard. Then cut off the bottom that had been wet. We cut a double thickness of cardboard to size from a large box. Then taped it on to the bottom of the piece that hadn'et gotten wet. It's important to have that cardboard intalled because it protects the outside of the door from getting dented as well as for sound. When the new little gasket was delivered we installed it and the detergent door worked fine again. We ran the dishwasher through a cycle and that's when we discovered that the door gasket was leaking. I wish I would have ordered both gaskets at the same time. If I would have read the postings on this website when I ordered the detergent door gasket, I would have ordered the door gasket. Oh well, everything worked out. I just spent an extra shipping charge. Still an enormous savings over hiring a Maytag repairman.

lid came loose and lost the spring

The hardest part was getting the lid back off. I had tried using the dihxeasher while waiting for the spring. Once I figured that out, it was fairly easy. Once I got the longer pin out, it was just a matter of figuring which way to put the spring in. Took me a few tries without the instructions

The hardest part was figuring out how to get the dishwasher out from the cabinet. Your instructional video said "no tools are needed" but that turned out to be untrue.

It was very easy. Simply remove old seal with a pair of needle nose pliers. Clean or scrap any build-up from old seal location and then push-in the new door seal. Close door and let the new seal form to the door.
