I bought the replacement rack which fits, accommodates the cutlery container but does not come with clips and hits the spray arm. Too bad they can't make an arch over the arm. Also, why did they stop making the clips for the rack pieces? We are trying ties for now. But have to be carful to not hit the spray arm.

Replaced the inner door foam insulation strip and door gasket.I believe the "secret" is not to push the door gasket in all the way. Let the door find its own seat. Problem fixed.

This was as simple a repair as you will ever get, at least on a 16 year old Maytag like we have. Literally just take the old gasket out and put the new one in -- just make sure to look at the old gasket to ensure you are inserting the proper end of the new one into the channel, I almost put it in wrong, but then again I'm brain damaged where home repairs are concerned. The door is more difficult to close after I put the gasket in, so I may have to adjust the door closing mechanism just a tad.

Dishwasher Leaks

Installing the door gasket is relatively easy, it just pushes in place without any adhesive. Just make sure it is even on both sides
You can to pull it out and reinstall to even it all way around the door if needed.
You may also find a new gasket will make to door a little harder to close. I presume it will be easier to close over time.
I also installed a new float at the same time but that repair is very difficult, takes specialized tools and lots of patience.

After I got the new springs, I pulled the dishwasher out and the springs were fine but the little plastic piece that attaches the spring to the door was gone. So now I had to order the that piece and wait again.

At first I was confused on how to repair this, but once I was able to unscrew the large cover to reveal the inside area, it became clear on which part to replace. The screws were a star type, in which I was able to use an old IKEA hex wrench. There is a small plastic tip that unscrews in the center of this part. Once you unscrew that, the part comes right out. This is my second time ordering a part from these guys for this washer. They are awesome!! The part came in 2 days, so happy!!

We first ordered the wrong part, but thankfully partselect was happy to return the item. I first got to say identifying the right part is a lot easier if you know what it looked like before it broke! Upon receiving the corrected part much faster than we expected (2 days on a saturday!) I began to assess the situation. I needed a star-type bit for a screw driver to remove the screws. Thankfully it was a standard size that comes in most cheap screwdriver kits. I removed the 3 screws on the round lid at the bottom that covered the piece, removed the old center spray nozzle. I then tried to put the old one on and later discovered the small plastic piece I thought was the place to mount it on was actually the old part broken. I unscrewed the old piece and put the new one on, made sure it was tight. I replaced the round lid that covered the other piece up, put the spray arm on and the center spray jet inside, screwed it down tight. Rotated the spray arm to make sure it moved freely. We then turned the dish washer on to make sure it was spinning and pumping water, etc. Everything appeared to be working fine, so we loaded it up with dishes and the dish washer washed much better than it had in the past. The dish washer came with the trailer, so we don't know how old it is for sure. We had a problem with the dishes on the top not getting washed properly if you don't load the bottom rack just right. We later noticed on a previous comment that others had a problem with the top rack not getting clean because of this part. I highly recommend this site to anyone fixing any home appliance! Lately we've been having a lot of repair expenses and this site saved us some serious money! We expected to have to buy a new dish washer, because the cost of a repairman to fix it would likely to exceed the cost of a new dish washer. We've been researching doing fix-it jobs ourself and any time we can safely repair something ourself, we try our best to do it. I especially love the breakdown of the parts. I'm not a mechanic, plumber, etc. I am a Ham Radio Operator who used to work as a Cashier. I don't know what you call all the parts, and some I have no clue what they do, but I can look at the picture and find a part that looks like what I need! I can look at the break-down page and see what must be removed to get to the part. In short, I'm an average guy who used the information available to me to fix the dish washer myself. When a company like partselect can enable a average guy to repair something for a fraction of the cost of paying a professional, that's definitely an innovative idea! A lot of the instructions on this site really lack the description of how to fix it. Granted, this job, once you look at it is incredibly simple! The only thing I have to say is make sure you have a star bit to take off the screws before you begin. Having the right tools to begin makes it go much quicker.

Gasket on my Maytag dishwasher was not making a good seal. I found PartSelect online. Entered my model number and make. Placed my order and received it the next day. The cost of the part reasonable. The website user friendly. Love PartSelect.
