Removed the old door gasket by pinching it and slowly pulling it out of its track. Used a small headed bristle brush to clean any remaining rubber particles from the old gasket to insure a clean track. Carefully placed the new gasket in place starting at the left bottom corner and working around the track to the bottom right corner. Perfect fit . . . no leaks.

The upper spray arm kept falling off.

The part is on the bottom of the washer. You have to remove the front panel at bottom (four screws)The part is on the left side of the washer. First thing to do is to remove the water inlet hose, using an open end wrench. There are two screws that hold the part to the sideof the washer. I used a multibit screwdriver with no bits in it, it the right size and works very good. Disconnet the electic from the part. Turn part so you can the see outlet hose & clamp, use a pair of plyers to open and slide the clamp up the hose, and pull the hose off the part. To reassmble reverse the procedure.To show how easy this is I'am a 76 year old man and had no trouble at all. The hardest part of the job was finding the leak in the first place

Easy- just ordered the new basket and swapped out the old one. the new one I received is sturdier and better made than the old one that the machine came with. I think I read somewhere the Maytag redesigned it because the original one did not hold up well. All repairs should be this easy!

Leakage from the front of the door

  • Difficulty: Easy

Using the information from this site on what could cause the problem, I ordered the door gasket and the detergent grommet. Silly to do the door gasket, which helped slow down the leak but didn't fix all of it, and then have to go and order the grommet and wait for that to show up when it is less than $5. I need of a door gasket really bad anyway. I peeled the old door gasket out with a screw driver and replaced the new one in less than 5 minutes. Test ran the dishwasher and found that it still leaked some. Removed the inner door panel as shown in the help video, 7 hex screws, very simple, no suprise pieces falling out, removed the detergent latch, (2) 1/4" screws, and slide out the piece. The grommet was almost gone. Slipped the new one on, replacing all the pieces the way they came off and test ran again. One little drip but I think it left over moisture from before. Have it twice since with no leaks. Perfect solution.

Removed the rack by unlocking the slide stops on each end. That was a bit of a chore until I figured how to remove the stops. Then fairly easy. Removed the 2 small pivoting side rack attachments from the old rack and installed them on the new rack. Installed the new rack in the two sliding side rails and the job was done.

I took out the old basket and dropped in the new one. No tools were needed. I am really glad that PartSelect carries this item because Maytag does not. Getting this part will allow us to get a few more years of use out of the dishwasher. The bottom of the old basket was disintegrating to the point where it would soon have become unusable and without the replacement basket, the dishwasher itself would not have been worth keeping.
