Question Maytag DW - Scratch Repair Possible on white door

Topic says it all.

I have a Maytag Dishwasher, Quiet Plus 2, that I just installed. It is from 1998. It has an ugly scratch on the front about two or three inches long. it isnt extremely deep, but it is noticable. Is there any way of repairing this short of buying a new cover?

Hi fish_taste_good,
- almost every appliance maker including Maytag, sell touch up paint bottles for their appliances. If there's a Maytag store near you get it there, or many good appliance stores may have it

Do it Right -Do it once.

Where on the front? If on the control panel, then you may be able to replace the plexiglas panel cover (and personalise the panel markings while you're at it ). If on the door face, then you may be able to replace that part. Sometimes it's just a flat rectangle of sheet metal, held on with easily removed trim. I took one of these out to be custom painted just last week (Miele brand). I know some Maytag dishwashers have fronts designed for optional decorative panels.

It is on the front door panel, not the control panel.

The front panel is 34 dollars. I can look at the scratch for that price.

I just went to the maytag store to pickup a knob for the DW, so i think i wll be giving them a call about touchup paint.

I have no idea why i didn't think of that. I only looked in the appliance section of HD and Lowes.
