It took more time to open the package than to actually effect the repair. I snapped the wheel on the axle, then snapped it in place on the front side of the dishwasher. It took less than 5 minutes to end the aggravation that had lasted months!

went online to parts select. Looked at parts that could be leaking. Thought it was the sump. Purchased the sump and the pump connector. Almost bought the adaptor pump assembly, but it was $29.00. Parts arrived in about 2 days. Turned off water and power to dishwasher. Disconnected the copper water line. Hardest part was getting the dishwasher out of space. Once out, layed it on it's side. Parts held together with clamps. Took it apart like a puzzle. Replaced the parts, tightened the clamps. Pump connector hard to unscrew. Got a good hand grip on it and turned it loose. Sump did have a hole in it. Put everything back together. water, electric, etc. Turned it on and it was leaking. Leak coming from the adaptor pump assembly. Couldn't wait 2 more days.Found part at a local parts store for $40.00. Was able to change it by reaching underneath and not pulling dishwasher out again. All three parts needed to be changed. Dishwasher now working fine. If your leaking underneath and taking out the dishwasher change those 3 parts.

Twice I have ordered the wheels and axles from you, as more wheels broke at the axle holder. Now, all are replaced, and your upgrade to clip the axle to the wire rack on both sides was perfect. The wheels are thicker and stout too. Thanks for this and for quick, very quick, delivery.

At first I ordered just the wheels. When I received them I realized that I had to have the axles too. I ordered the axles and problem solved. To my surprise, they had changed the design of the axles and my problem may be solved forever.

Removed the door gasket and cleaned the track prior to installing the new gasket. The online repair instructions didn't mention a thin wire that is stored at the bottom of the tub near the door and is used to hold the ends of the gasket in place. Gently remove the ends of the gasket from the wire prior to pulling the entire gasket out of the machine track.

Wheels falling off lower rack of GE Dishwasher

The wheels kept falling off the lower rack making it difficult to pull the rack out. Examining the issue, it appeared that the axles in particular were breaking. I ordered the new ones which had a different design from the originals, along with new wheels just to cover all bases. The wheels snap onto the axles and then you just snap the axles in place. The new axle design was both simpler and more stable. Took 10 minutes, cost about $30 for everything, and problem solved.
