Replacing the door switches was easy. The video & directions are spot on. This did not fix my problem. Called a repair man. He came and found a broken wire right in the hinge between the main unit & the door. It was very easy to see if you were looking for it. Once you have the inside cover off, check the wire bundle that runs from the unit to the door. He just butt spliced the wire back together and I’m up & running again. He said this is very common in older machines.

Removed the old door gasket. Adjusted the new gasket to fit evenly on both sides. Removed the seven hex screws. Two nuts holding the cover over the backside of the cover for the soap dispenser. Removed the old grommet, replace the new one. Cleaned up the inside and replace screws. Truly was easy.

Got all info from your site, thank you. I replaced the door gasket and water deflectors and I still had a small leak. Replaced the gromet and the o ring in the soap disp. And still had a small leak. I adjusted the door latch to close a little tighter and that solved the problem. You have a great site. Keep up the good work.

The hardest part was figuring out how to get the dishwasher out from the cabinet. Your instructional video said "no tools are needed" but that turned out to be untrue.

I had to get my son to twist off the spray tower, the otherwise the transition to our new racks was quite easy. I did have to look up on the internet Maytag site how to get the spray tower off and how to install a side piece on the upper rack. Easy to do however.

Ordered parts and referred to exploded component drawings on the website to install replacements. Videos were helpful. Be careful to check all plastic parts for deterioration so that you can order them all at once. I had to make two additional orders for rollers and retainers that looked fine, but were brittle and needed replacement.

Followed the video on your site. Removed old gasket, put in new one...easy, breezy! For good measure, since we weren't sure where the leak was coming from, installed a new water deflector as well, which was also extremely easy. Out with the old, in with the new and no leaks!!

I made the repair easily by watching the step by step video supplied on the web site...easy peasy! Thank you so much. Saved me lots of money I'm sure. Could have saved $5 more if my dog hadn't chewed up the wheel from the rack! HA! Thanks so much. My dishwasher runs more quietly than it has in awhile!

It was very easy. Simply remove old seal with a pair of needle nose pliers. Clean or scrap any build-up from old seal location and then push-in the new door seal. Close door and let the new seal form to the door.

rusted plastic coated steel rack needs replacement

replacing the rack was easy - but first we had to swap out the plastic spay tower that twist-locks onto the new rack. My smart wife figured this one out, despite the lack of any trace of instructions (the less astute amature repairperson would have mangled the whole shootin' match attempting to make the change); that said, the rack was not a "one-to-one" match, as it lacked the original's high left sidewall and a few other minor differences that did not affeect the overall performance of the part - a not uncommon occurance in the aftermarket parts world.
