Removed rack from dishwasher, put axles in wheels and replaced onto lower rack. Used new design axle in replacement, seems to be an excellent fit.

Just pulled the old axles out and snapped the new ones in and slid them on. Wish all household repairs were this easy.

Replaced all 8 of the wheels and axles (the old axles wouldn't hold the wheels in place any longer). Replaced the tub gasket because of cuts from knives. Both fixes were relatively easy to do, although directions for the tub gasket would have been nice!

The two lower right wheels kept falling off, then one fell down and was partly melted by the heating unit on the bottom. I went on line,read some of the do it yourself repairers to see what they did. Looked up the parts, (used the back wheels to put on the front)ordered it, delivery was just a few days and within 10 minutes done. It was just that easy. Thank you for making it that easy, a lot of us are trying to save where we can these days and that helped a lot.

When we tried the door wouldn't open and the door handle actuator fell out in our hand

Took the screws out of the inner panel to open it and expose the latch area. Found the door spring stuck to the insulation so we saved it. Used the part's list picture to figure out how to put the latch parts together (wish the picture was better). Reattached the inner panel. The latch works better now than when it was new....which makes us wonder.

Rack does not roll correct, falls into tub

Removed old wheels and axles, installed new axles in wheels, clipped into place. I purchased new wheels and axles. Probably only needed the axles. The front wheels are narrower than the rear wheels. This probably contributes to them falling off the track. Since I purchased 8 new wheels (all wide, now I know what the second part number was for)I put all wide on. Seems to be more stable that way. New straight style axle clip appears more robust than the old side clip style. Thanks Parts select

My husband took off all the wheels and changed the axles. We had friends who had the same problem and they led us to your web site.

Wheels were broken, continually fell off

Actually, given the lack of instructions, I installed the wheels incorrectly. Ordered a complete new bottom rack. What a difference! GE re-engineered a poorly designed product and the new rack with improved wheel installation is great.
One complaint. My product information tells me the racks are guaranteed for 5 years. My rack also had some rust.I tried to call GE but got only very unhelpful voice prompts. Do not have GE rapairmen in area. Rack was just under 5-year warranty when I started trying to contact GE.
But it was worth the money to get the new rack.

So impressed! I got my parts 2 days after I ordered them. Installation was super easy. I wonder why I waited so long to order! It was such a quick easy fix. The wheel axel is redesigned from the original ones. No more fighting to get my lower rack pulled out! Thanks for great service Parts Select!

Ordered on a Friday and parts arrived Sat. No tools required. Pieces easily slipped into place. Dishwasher is all fixed. This site is much easier to use than GE's. Will use PartSelect for all future replacement parts.

So easy and the posts on the site were incredibly helpful in determing what part i needed. The wheels on the dish rack inside the dishwasher kept falling off. I had to keep lifting the dish rack in and out of the dish washer to load and unload it. Unbelievably annoying. I popped the old wheel axels out of the exisiting wheels and replaced them with the new wheel axels I ordered from PartSelect. Then I attached the wheels back on the dish rack and it was right back to normal.
