A simple do-it yourself project. All I had to do was unsnap the old broken roller and snap the new one in place. The hardest part was getting the plastic cap off the arm that the roller glides in, and even that was not difficult at all.

I had some extra problems with my water supply line since this is an old house, but I won't dwell on that. If you have an older model like mine (probably 80's) the only trick is with the drain solenoid. The kit uses a newer style solenoid that is a little different. Without getting too technical here, let me just say that if the old solenoid has a little metal lever that is actuated when the plunger goes down do not discard it. From what I have read, the dishwasher will shut down with an error code if you don't use this part and you will also have 2 wires that are just hanging there with nothing to plug in to. You will need to use an included metal plate and screws to adapt that part to the new assembly. It takes a little mechanical aptitude, but after you figure it out it works perfectly. I did not see this mentioned in the instructions but the necessary parts were included. Replacing the pump and motor was fairly simple, and all the needed parts were included in the kit. I did remove the unit from under the counter and lay it on it's back for easy access to the pump and motor. It helps to watch some You-tube videos if you are unsure about how to do this, but make sure they are working on the brand you have. All dishwashers are NOT the same.

with a dishwasher. Someone had 'packed' the silverware basket and there wasn't one in my dishwasher! Ordered one from here, when it arrived, opened the box, opened the dishwasher and placed it in the correct place. Closed dishwasher - DONE!

2 screws to remove valve, turn water off, detach water line, detach plastic water outlet line, and put the new one on, reattaching everything in reverse. Electrical hookup was just two wires to solenoid. Slipped them off and back on new valve solenoid. Some difficulty getting support screws back in.

This was a rent house. The top rack wasn't cleaning well and the bottom rack was missing the wheels. The spray arm w/ tower was missing the tower. Removed the bottom rack, snapped the wheels in place. unscrewed the damaged spray arm from its base by twisting the bottom non-mobile part, and screwed the new spray arm w/ tower in. Took 15 minutes tops for everything.

1. Pulled the upper basket out. 2. Removed the end caps on the tracks supporting the basket. 3. Cussed a little - used a small flat screwdriver to force a flange on the end cap to move far enough to free up the end cap. 4. Removed all 4 wheel assemblies. 5. Snapped 4 new upper wheels and axels into place on the basket. 6. Slid the upper basket into the tracks. 7. Replaced the 2 end caps. 8. Works like a charm.

The 4 rollers and axles needed to be replaced for the upper rack. First, I had to remove the end caps from the upper tracks. This was the most difficult part of the repair. I intially tried to pull the caps towards the front of the dishwasher which did not work. In the end, I twisted them towards the center of the dishwasher. Once this was done, I pulled the upper rack from the tracks, replaced the old rollers and axles with the new ones. Put the rack back on the track. Put the end caps back on. The repair took less than 15 minutes, for something that has be getting worse over the last year.

The only thing I would add to your instructions. Hold the shaft tight while pushing the lock nut on. Pull back with a slight pressure, then push on nut. If you don't you could be placing to much tightness on the drain valve making it so your dishwasher won't fill properly.
