Removed the existing stud rollers with the wheels attached. Then removed the wheels from the stud roller. Then snapped the wheels on the new "Better Designed" stud rollers. Then easily snapped the new stud roller assembly in place. Piece of cake...works like a charm.

Thanks,

Randy

wheels kept falling off bottom rack

Man, if you need help doing this repair, you shouldn't even own a dishwasher, much less a house. This was the easiest repair in the entire galaxy. First, I removed the old wheels, which was easy becasue they were always falling off by themselves. I then had to use pliers to squeeze the old studs to remove them from the wheels. All the wheels were still in good shape. Then I snapped the wheels onto the new studs, and snapped the studs onto the lower rack. And then, it was like I was in heaven. Bluebirds were singing, the sun was shining, my lower rack was sliding in and out and in and out like it was new. O happy day.

Basket Wheels Were Falling Off

This was a simple part swap. The stud rollers are the small peg-clips that hold the wheel on the lower dish rack. Removing the old stud rollers from the wheels required a pair of pliers. I then popped the new stud rollers into the old wheels and snapped them back onto the lower dish rack. I scored some major points from my frustrated wife -- easy, fast fix!

Turned off the power at the main box. Removed the six phillips screws and two bottom hex screws holding the front panel. Removed the two solenoid wires on the old dispenser (Label wire polarity). Removed the eight screws holding the old soap dispensor and took it out. Cleaned the area around the hole. Laid down a bead of silicon caulk around the hole edges. Placed the new dispenser in the hole and replaced the eight screws (do not over tighten). Replaced the two wires on the dispenser solenoid (check polarity). Replaced the front cover (Do not over tighten. Turned on the power and job complete.

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.

I removed the old rack and saved the flatware container. Then I put the new rack in.

The difference between the old one and the new one is that between a busted grocery cart with one wheel that always wants to return to the parking lot, and a well-trained dog that does exactly what I ask it to. The new rack was worth the $95 I spent to get it.

The new rack came with wheels and axles, so I didn't need to order more.

I took out the old rack and rolled in the new. I thought I was going to have to take the rollers off the old one and put them on the new, but they were already on the new rack. The hardest part was getting into the box. I am an 80 year old female.

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.

Took screws out that hold front panel on, unplugged wiring, changed soap dispenser, and put everything back together. Not a bad repair at all.

After removing the screws, the front of the dishwasher easily came off. I put 2 screws back in to hold the control panel in place. I did not want that to dangle while replacing the part. The part came off easily after removing the screws. Everything went together easy.

The repair was easy. Removed all the screws from the inside door panel, approx. 11. Watch out for that last screw as there isn't anything else holding the outside panel, inside panel and control panel together other than those screws. I then unplugged the old dispenser backed out another 6 screws and replaced the old dispenser with the new one. Put it all back together within about a half hour.

Old rack was rusted out and missing most of the wheels.

Easiest repair ever. My new rack arrived in three days, opened the box and slid it in. Better quality than the original. Excellent service!
