Lower Wheel Assembly

This lower dishrack roller is less than two inches in diameter. It is made entirely of white plastic. If you find that your dishwasher is making loud noises or the lower rack is getting stuck when you are moving it in or out, it could be that the lower wheel assembly needs to be replaced. The dishrack wheels allow for easy movement of the dishrack in and out of the dishwasher. These rollers tend to wear down at the same speed, so it is recommended to replace both pairs at the same time. Open your dishwasher and remove the bottom rack, locate the locking tab, and rotate until it easily slides out of place. Slide the new wheel over the shaft and locate the locking tab to snap back into place.

Inner Door Foam Insulation Strip

This genuine inner door foam insulation strip, sometimes known as bottom seal foam, is used to create a waterproof seal that helps prevent leaking from the door area of the dishwasher. The existing insulation strip may leave a sticky residue or leftover disintegrated strip that must be scraped off before installing the new strip. Residue can be scraped off with a putty knife. Be sure to remove all residue and clean surrounding areas of the dishwasher build. It is strongly recommended to check other sealant parts on the dishwasher door such as the door gasket and dispenser grommet to ensure the leaking issue is fully solved.

If there is breakage in your part you will know quickly, as the most common symptom of needing to replace this piece is leakage from your dishwasher door. Once this piece has been installed it is best to close the dishwasher, and leave it in that position for several hours. This will allow this new seal to properly sit.

Door Cable Link

This is a part for your dishwasher. The door cable link helps to keep the door steady and give support to the weight of the door when it is being opened or closed. If you notice the door latch has failed or the door is not closing properly, this might indicate a need to have the door cable link replaced. To perform this repair, you will start by turning the power off from the appliance. You will need to pull the unit out of installation. To access the cables, you will need to remove the side panel. You should be able to see the cables underneath the panel once removed.
