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.

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!!

Broken Lower Spray Arm Support & replace Upper Spray Arm and Nut

  • Customer: John from Sedona, AZ
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
This part broke when I was attempting to remove the Spray arm to check below for debris etc. What also turned out to be the case was that despite semi-annual white vinegar cleaning wash cycles I'd done over the years to keep the unit fit - the top screw assembly had frozen to the Lower Spray Arm Support by hard water calcium build up. I eventually had to use channel grips to separate the broken off Lower Spray Arm Support screw head from the upper screw plastic piece and clean out its threads to be sure that I didn't need to order a replacement for it as well. After ordering the Lower Spray Arm Support part along with the upper spray arm and holding nut I proceeded to remove the 3 screws with the appropriate Allen wrench that hold the large water filter cover - only to find about a 1/4-1/2 inch build up of calcium in the well of the washer. I used the back side of a table spoon to carefully remove the massive calcium build up - making sure not to hurt the spring loaded water control mechanism in the front. Added a gallon of hot water and had the washer drain itself several times until it was more or less free of white calcium. I replaced the Lower Spray Arm Support making sure to include the original floater washer ring from before replacing the unit and thumb tightening down the plastic screw that holds this into place. The blades of the Lower Spray Arm Support need to be turned so as not to be hit by the large water filter cover's spring loaded mechanism on the bottom. If you forgot which side of this goes forward look for the arrow on one of the 3 screw holes that hold it in place - this one should line up with the most forward screw hole. Replace the 3 screws that hold the water filter in place. line up the Upper spray arm so that the notches on the bottom match the Lower Spray Arm Support arms. be sure to replace the inner pop-up water sprayer before lowering and screwing the plastic holding assembly onto the Lower Spray Arm Support firmly. Last but not least I gently removed the Upper Spray Arm; unscrewed the Upper Spray Arm Nut - replaced the new Upper Spray Arm Nut by screwing it in firmly and gently replaced the new Upper Spray Arm. I ran a long pots and pan heated wash cycle with a gallon of white vinegar (NO SOAP ETC) before starting to use the machine - AWESOME results - dishes are again all clean - no calcium fog on the crystal, plates or dishes - ALL GOOD! ;-) Highly recommend replacing the Upper Spray Arm AND Nut if you are doing anything else - this really helps and the cost is low.
