The middle (plates and silverware) rack of my maytag dishwasher broke. The supports for the wheels were plastic hubs that bore the weight of the rack.

About a year after owning the dishwasher, the front two plastic wheel hubs that support the rack broke.

I ordered the left and right Rack Adjuster Assembly which included the main T shaped support rail including the two wheels. The good news is that these hubs are METAL which should not break like the weak plastic hubs of the previous version.

I removed about 4-5 screws from the original assembly, and installed the new rack adjuster assembly and replaced the screws. About 20 minutes total for both sides.

I also replaced the tracks since mine were somewhat bent after the original supports broke.

Very nice to have a fully operational / sturdy middle rack again on this dishwasher.
