The rear wheel on the lower dish rack broke at the axle attachement. The wheel then feel inside the dishwasher against the heating element causing the wheel to melt. I ordered the new parts and they arrived very quickly. I attached the axle to the wheel with hand pressure, no tools required. I then attached the wheel assembly to the verticle support of the lower wash rack with hand pressure and was done. Very easy and the new design of the axle seems to attach better to the rack.
