Removed the lower rack and upper rack after removing the end caps on the rail. Order new replacement end caps. The originals will likely break because the plastic becomes more brittle over time. Unsnap the upper washer arm from the original upper rack and snap onto the new one before inserting it into the rails.

The trick is replacing the end caps. Using needle-nose pliers, bend the indented edge of the rails out so you can attached the new end caps without trouble. After they are in place, use the tip of the needle-nose pliers to restore the indentation on the edge of the rails to lock the caps in place.
