Re: Spinner support - HELP
Really???? your trying to get this off yourself? i cant believe you have the courage to try this repair!!! when these units are making an airplane taking off noise then you are at the right place. also sometimes the support will break and make a thumping or banging noise in spin. seriously if you dont have warranty on this then you should just go buy a new washer, if it is under warranty, maybe a lifetime warr on the innertub, then we dont try to remove the bearings, just replace both the inner and outer tub. the outer tub comes with the bearings in it already. be carefull to install the seal properly so the new one wont leak. also if you call maytag they may help you with free parts but you might have to pay for labor to have it done by an authorized repair company.

how do you put the lid together just below the area of the top? Friend went to wash spinner and pulled on top and now I can't get it to sit flush anymore. It seems there a two plastice prongs inside top that must be released. Help please. Love this spinner but now can't use!
You should have 3 parts. The spinner, a cone shaped insert and the snap pin. The cone shape insert is the first part to install. Look at the upper spray feed tube in the top of the dishwasher where the old part used to be. Place the cone shaped insert on top of the spray tube through the hole with the flat part on top. Now take the spinner and snap it into the cone shaped insert from the bottom of the hole. Be sure that the swirling vanes are facing upwards. It should snap in. With the snap pin, push it into the insert underneath the spinner. This is what holds the spinner to the insert. Good luck.
First check - ensure that the jets at the end of the spinner blade are not blocked. Check that the spinner is not siezed by turning it by hand, other than a cracked or disconnected pipe, there can not really be another reason for the spinner not rotating (if the bottom one rotates).
Try twirling the spinner by hand to see if it is binding. If it looks ok then there could be something plugging the water passage to the spinner. If you have access to a water hose you could run water into that verticle passage pipe and see if there is an obstruction. If so it can be taken apart for cleaning.
the medium sized plastic piece slides into the spinner and you put it upto the manifold. you have to remove the manifold so that you can push the smaller piece of plastic through the top of the manifold into the medium sized piece which would be holding the spinner up.
I had the same problem, the 3rd level spinner falling off. Without getting into my saga story, save yourself some $$$.
-You will need a screw & washer to replace the plastic thumbtack. The screw will have to be able to screw into the female part of the spinner; the washer will keep the screw from falling out of the hole in the flat hose on the ceiling of the dishwasher.
-If you look closely at the spinner(the part that keeps falling off), you will notice it comes apart. With a flat head screwdriver, separate the 2 parts. (there are 3 parts all together; Keep the round center piece sticking out of the top peice)
--Remove the top drawer of the dishwasher to give you some room to work
-Remove the screw on the "ceiling" of the dishwasher(it is located further back from where the spinner goes) to allow the flat pastic tube to come down low enough for you to get in behind it.(set that screw aside in a safe place; you will put it back later)
-Remove the pastic thumbtack from the hole in the flat plastic tube if it is there & replace with a washer and screw.
-Take the top 2 peices of the spinner, together as assembled & screw the screw into the female portion of the spinner.
-snap on the 3rd piece of the spinner
-replace the screw you took out earlier, securing the flat plastic tube.
-place top drawer
Voila, you are done!! You just saved yourself $20+
