Unsnap the end covers on the old sliding rack and slide the basket assembly out. This leaves the frames for the rack slide on the right and left side of the unit. Both sides snap out by twisting them downward. Remove the plastic brackets on the new racks by twisting them off. Snap new rack slide frames into the corresponding side of the diswasher. They are marked with an "up" arrow. Unsnap end covers on new rack slide frames and reinsert the basket assembly into the frames. Snap end covers over rack slides to trap the rollers into the slide. When you are finished you should dissassemble the strainer unit on the bottom of the dishwasher by the pump and remove all the small plastic balls that were part of the rack assemblies. They fall out and clog up the chopper assembly and pump.
