The plastic wheels kept falling off the bottom rack of the dishwasher

The old wheels and attachment brackets were easily removed since they were always falling off. I ordered all new brackets and wheels, but it turns out I didn't need new wheels. If your original wheels are in good condition, they are the same size as the new ones and fit the new brackets. The new attachment brackets are built differently than the ones that came with the dishwasher, but (a good thing considering the originals only lasted 1 1/2 years). The new brackets and wheels snapped together and snapped into place on the dishwasher in minutes--no tools were needed. It took longer to cut the parts out of the packaging than to install them. The bottom rack now rolls out like it did when it was brand new. Definitely worth the few dollars in parts.

Simply pull out the old axle and snap in the new one. It is simple. Also the replacement axels were MUCH better quality than the originals. The bottom tray now slides in and out very easily. Note, if you have this problem, you do not need to replace the wheel, just the axle.

Really all it took was removal of the old wheels which would not stay on anyway and the installation of the new ones. That required the axle and wheel being put together and the installing both of those on the lower rack. I was about to buy a new dishwasher when the salesmen told me about a product called Lemi Shine it saved my hundreds of dollars and the inside of my dishwasher looks brand new. With my new wheels I am good to go again.

We received our parts for our dishwasher within 2 days. It was very simple to find the parts on your site, and very easy to install. Our dishwasher is back to normal and the racks roll in and out easily. I would recommend ordering from PartSelect to anyone.

Purchased new $1400 dishwasher from sales floor for $699. Cosmetically perfect, but missing drain tube and clamp. Seemed like a good deal... and it was. Needed parts were $34. Install of this machine was a breeze, and it is suoer quiet...I need to get down on the floor and listen for water flow to know that it's working. Really.

I simply removed the old (broken) stud rollers by pinching them with a needle nose pliers and pushing them out, snapped the new stud roller in the wheel, and snapped the wheel onto the lower basket unit. If you have all of the wheels and they are in good shape, you do not need to buy new wheels, the new stud rollers work just fine with the old wheels.

The soap dispenser would not close.

This was simple. I took the door apart with a portable screw driver. Then I detached the wires and unscrewed the old module and replaced it. I then put the door back together, loaded the dishwasher and it cleaned my dishes. Even for this `old dog' it was easy.
