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.

It was super simple, the web site was excellent in helping me purchase the proper parts, even when a slight error was made in my order(2 parts bags were ship that were empty)I contacted the service department an they immediately sent out the parts at no charge. I replaced the dishwasher cover in about 10 minutes. Probably saved a couple hundred dollar from a service call. Thank you.

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.

I looked through the pictures of parts and discovered I could order just the worst of the broken tines...front bowl tine with sleeves and rear bowl tine! I ordered them one day and they were delivered the next day....no special shipping! I was very happy with this solution and was able to install them very easily. My dishwasher is not perfect but it is much better than it was and I am sure this "repair" will mean Ii can use the dishwasher for several more years! Thank you!

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.
