The sensor on our Maytag dishwasher model # ***** doesn't

Customer Question

The sensor on our Maytag dishwasher model # ***** doesn't work. can we install a new part ourselves or does this require a maytag person? By the time we pay we are 1/2 way to another one and this one was a lemon to begin with - needed a new motor months after we purchased!!!

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The sensor is actually very easy to replace. You will need to access the bottom of the wash motor sump to get to the sensor, that is the most difficult part. It can be done with the machine installed but is much easier if removed and laid on its back. The sensor will turn 1/4 turn to the left and pull out after the wiring harness is unplugged. The sensor is shown as number 20 in the diagram below. CLICK HERE The link below is to the part you will need from a highly recommended company rated A+ with the Better Business Bureau.
