What are the dimensions of this insulating shield? I'm in need of 84" x 20" for my maytag MDB4409PAW0 dishwasher.
Answer Hello Amy! We do not have the exact measurements available from the manufacturer. However, searching online I've found the cabinet shield is approx. 73"L x 48 1/2"W x 32"H. Searching your appliance model number the shield required for your dishwasher is part number 8573240. Thanks!
I need to replace the sound shield or cabinet shield surrounding my Whirlpool dishwasher; WP P/N 8573242. How does this attach to the dishwasher or does it just lay on top and then drape down the sides? Will it stay secure when sliding the dishwasher back into place?
Answer Hi Karen. The insulation/sound barrier part # 8573242 usually is carefully pushed back with the unit loose. Some better technicians will take the time to make sure it is taped in place. On the top at the front there is a wrap around steel frame behind the latch strike area. Place the top of the insulation taped to the back of this frame. Make sure it is centered on each side. Tape it just behind the door springs so they do not get wrapped internally. Thank You.
