Had some difficulty taking off the old platsic clips that secure the wheel assemly to the shelf because they are all snap-on/snap-in assemblies and could be broken easily. So extreme care as well as careful examination of what to do to what was required. I suggest that when you buy the wheel assembly you also buy the two clip-on/clip-in as well. That way you really don't have to worry if you break one or both and you could just "horse" them apart/off. Putting it back together is a "snap"........literally.

Printed the expolded diagram for the upper rack asembly when I ordered the part and retained to use as a reference for replacing the rack adjuster. Part arrived within three days or ordering. Used screwdriver to remove clips holding broken adjuster in place and referenced the diagram to attach the new adjuster to the rack. From start to finish was no more than 10 minutes.

Disconnected the water and drain lines, pulled the washer out of the cabinet cavity. At that point, the work area was fully exposed. Then just a matter of removing the old assembly and replacing with the new. Stretching the spring so the other end of the cable could be attached to the door was the only part of the project that took a little bit of effort. It took more time to disconnect the water lines and pull out the washer than replacing the broken parts on each side of the door.

The repair was very simple and would recommend that both the left and right side be done at the same time as this was the second one I had done in less than a year. I believe there is a design fault and the stem on the wheel is subject to wear and breaks quite easily. I would recommend that you leave one side on to provide guidance while replacing the other side. Watch for the "u" shaped clip when you unsnap the assembly as you will need to use it in the repair and it is not a part of the replacement assembly.

When opened the door had to be carefully lowered, would not stay up!

Removed screws from under counter supports with Phillips head. With small flat head screwdriver removed the bottom plate, adjusted the support feet upwards . Very gently pulled out dishwasher from cabinet , about 2-2.5 feet exposing lower sides and springs and old balance parts. With a nut driver 5/16 removed first side old part keeping nut screw, placed the dual wheel part keyhole notch into the hole and positioned the bottom and loosely secured the lower portion back into the hole with the nut screw.Then with the cord replaced the narrow part over the metal holder the way the old one was. Carefully feed the cord over /under as before , tighten the nut screw into place take the ring end and and hook it on to the spring that is very tight and hard to pull into place. This was the hardest step as I needed help because of the heavy duty spring. My 7yo granddaughter hooked the ring as I need both hands on the spring. I checked the part for being screwed in correctly , then repeated on the other side. Carefully pushed the appliance back into cabinet making sure any cord, hoses had not been pinched, adjusted the front support legs back into place , secured the upper braces, replaced the lower plate and it is perfect! It works better than after I had a handy man do this a few years ago. I am a 64 yo woman!

I watched the video on the web site and made the very simple repair. It was so easy that almost anyone could do it. Also, the parts arrived 2 days after I ordered them. The whole process was very easy and saved the cost of a service call.

Upper Rack wheel "axle" or support failed- very poor design

  • Customer: Robert from Delmar NY

You have to remove the upper rack from the appliance by releasing the stops at the end of the rack slide ( turn them outward). Slide out the upper rack in total. The wheel assembly is held on to the rack by three "clips" Depress the height adjuster to lower the assembly away from the top of the rack. Two of the three clips easily detach and slide off ( slotted attachments). The third is a bit more of a challenge as it snaps into the rack in several places. I very carefully used a small screwdriver to free it from the rack. Be careful as the clip costs as much as the wheel assembly ( go figure). I suspect if the clip broke , you could use plastic ties instead- not esthetic but cheaper. reassemble in reverse- good for two more years . I think I will probably epoxy the wheels to the assembly if they break again. It will slide just as easily and probably much more durable.
