The "cable", which is actually nylon had broken. The kit had two sets of cables and new pulleys, one for each side. I simply pulled out the dishwasher, unscrewed the single pulley mounting screws and then reused them to screw in the new pulleys. The hardest part was pulling the springs to have enough slack to attach the cables. The best method involved a vice-grip pliers holding an "s" hook. The "s" hook grabbed the springs, I pulled on the pliers and then had someone assist to keep the dishwasher from sliding forward. Then cable attachment was easy and quick.
