First I took apart and went to local appliance store. The wash impeller was broke for sure, but I could not figure how it worked. Their diagrams were not accurate and they only sold a kit for $40 just to get the wash impeller. I went online and found your site. I also could tell by your diagram(which was accurate) that the discharge pump housing was broke also. I found this on your site since it was under the problem I was having. I ordered the parts from you for $32 with shipping (included wash impeller and discharge pump housing). I received the parts on the second day, watched the video, and put back together. It works excellent. I am very impressed and will use your site for anything that breaks, and tell everyone about it. Thanks

Followed the excellent video instructions provided for each part but did all part replacements at the same time. I'll use this website for all my appliance repairs from now on - I was very satisfied by website's ease of use as well as the clear & supportive instructions.

The roller on the top rack was broken and rack wouldn't move in and out

It was fairly simple. I watched the video on the website that told me exactly how to install the part. I had some difficulty popping the part onto the rack so I enlisted the help of my son-in-law and he used a small screwdriver to pry the clamp open just a little and it popped onto the rack. It is so nice now to be able to pull the top rack out the whole way and slide it back in.

The rail stops broke in my dishwasher, so we had to replace them and the wheels on the shelf.

The wheels that originally were on the dishwasher were one piece, but the ones from the replacement were two parts. Snapping them together was a bit difficult,especially since I have nail extensions, but I was able to do it. Once that was completed, I snapped them on the side of the shelf as indicated in the schematics. Then, I put the rail stops on the back and installed the shelf. Finally, the front rail stops were installed. Dishwasher was back in action!

the repair was so easy. I called my local maytag repair man and they want 85.00 dollars for the call and 6.00 a piece for the parts. well really. so i thought how hard could it be? I ordered the parts from Part select and fixed it myself. it took a whopping 5 minutes, 1) un snap the clips at the end of the sliding metal bars and slide out the top rack and remove it.2) take old parts off slide bars by unsnapping them and pulling them off replace them with the snapped together new parts each part has 2 pieces and they will slide one in the designated place there are 2 on each side3) Replace the upper rack swing the clips to secure the rack and then replace the plastic pieces at the ends of the metal bars. Saved 88.00 bucks took me 5 minutes .

Water Leaking from pump hose

  • Customer: Robert from De Pere, WI
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

We discovered water leaking from the underside of the dishwasher. A closer inspection revealed that a pinhole had opened up in the rubber coupling at the bottom of the top shower pump hose. This piece is permanently attached to the pump hose, so you have to replace the whole thing. Repairing the dishwasher was an easy and straightforward affair as many other reviewers have described. The biggest difference between my experience and others was the presence of a cloth-like covering over the entire tub of the dishwasher. I assume this was either a thermal or sound insulation of some kind. To access the shower pump hose, it was necessary to remove the covering just enough to reach everything. The cover was held in place by some flexible black plastic pins. All that was needed was to work these back and forth until they slipped out of the underlying metal structure. Once I had the insulation pulled back it was a few quick minutes and the dishwasher was up and running.

Water was leaking from the side and bottom of our dishwasher

Our dishwasher has two gaskets, one around the top and one on the bottom. We ordered these two pieces with the help of staff at PartSelect who were very helpful and savvy. The gasket around the top part was very easy, had to be pulled out and replaced with the new one. We made sure the gasket went in exactly as we pulled it out with the thicker side inside the groove. We had to struggle with the bottom gasket that was stuck due to lots of hard water deposits. We cleaned first with lime-remover and then pulled out the rubber gasket from the bottom and pushed in the new one in the same direction. We had to do this twice before we got it situated. Then we loaded the dishwasher with cleaner and ran the cycle. No more water leaking out the sides.! Success!

I replaced the mounting strip and plate. Then I pressed on each mounting strip wheel and reinserted the rack onto its rails. Replace the rail end caps and the rack slide in and out as it did when it was working properly.

Washer would not fill

  • Customer: Randy from Angola, IN
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set, Wrench (Adjustable), Wrench set

I changed all of the switches first because it looked easier than the fill valve under the unit. After all of the switch changes (which were simple and quick) the washer still didn't fill. I removed the water valve and cleaned it, but still wouldn't fill. I reinstalled the old valve for practice, and then ordered water valve. It went alot smoother the second time around. I found it easier to disconect and connect the rubber water line with the hose clamp if I removed the valve from the sidewall of the wahser. Easier to get my fat fingers where they nedded to be. Used a shallow round 1 layer cake pan to catch drips. Works gtear now, and since I had earlier replaced the racks and silverware basket, it's pretty much a "new" twenty year old dishwasher. I went with the rehab instead of just replacing it because it has wood front panels which match our cabinets and wouldn't fit a new unit.
