It was very easy to install, took maybe 5 mins if that, and works like a charm -
*Remove "caps" from ends of the slide rails by pressing in the tab, this will allow you to remove the rack entirely -
*Remove the rack from main dishwasher body -
*Remove original torx screws -
*Remove the assembly, which comes apart in 2 sections, and note location as you do it ( I counted how many "rungs" from the nearest corner -
*Keeping the "inner" section, replace the "outer" section with the new piece -
*Fit the new piece and the original piece back together with the rack in between -
*Screw the torx screws (which you kept right?) back in -
*Slide the rack back intothe slide rails -
*Replace the end caps on the rails -
***Et voila! you're done, and happy to not be ripped....again.
Many outfits in my area would NOT sell the part and wanted to come install it themselves for as much as $250, what creeps!!
Any housewife could and should do this, and although I'm pretty handy, this is very definitely the kind of thing homeowners should do themselves if for no other reason than to have the satisfaction of knowing they didn't get ripped off by callous and immoral repair services.
