The detergent dispenser latch was broken

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.

The repair was very simple. I removed all eight wheels and discarded the old axles by pinching them out of each wheel and replacing them with the new (and improved) axles. I then turned the rack upside down and simply snapped the wheels back on the spindles. It took me longer to explain this than it took to make the repairs.

Dischwasher door would not open.

The repair was fairly simple. I unscrewed all of the screws holding the inside door panel from the outside door panel. I then removed the old (broken) door actuator with the new one, and then screwed everything back together. I used the exploded drawing of the dishwasher from the PartSelect website which helped considerably, and also don't forget to put the spring on the actuator before you install the new one. If your door actuator broke, then you should by the spring that attaches to it, because you have about a 1% chance of finding the new one.

wheels kept falling off

It was very simple to install. At first my husband thought I had ordered the wrong part. I guess they just revamped the part and it worked out really well. And I didn't have it mailed special but I got the parts in about 2 days. My only problem is that the shipping cost as much as the parts.
But the parts are installed and the wheels don't fall off anymore!! If I need anything else I will use your company again and I will tell friends and family about you guys.
Thanks

wheels were not staying attached to bottom rack

I only had to repair the wheel axle. Since I read another post stating you don't have to change the wheels, I ordered only the axle and they popped right into the existing wheel and attached to bottom rack better than original design.

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.

Wheels keep falling off dish rack.

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.
