Removed 8 screws from inside door cover. Opened the door and pulled off two wires from the detergent rinse dispenser with a pair of pliers and removed screws that held the dispenser in place. Removed the dispenser, placed new part in place and put screws back in and put wires back onto the dispenser. Closed cover and screwed back down. Easiest thing I've ever done.

Suggest purchasing new wheels with the new axles.Original wheels had 4 of the 8 narrower. New wheels, all the same wider width, provides better rolling stability...these re-designed axles are superior to the original. Be sure to attach wheels to axles before installing on lower basket...I checked GE Parts Website..cost was higher and axles shown were the old style.. Lastly, PartSelect ships very fast and correct, as I have found in the past.

I bought 9 sets of wheels & axles & had them shipped to me. I snapped a wheel on each of the axles, repackaged them and then sent them on to a lady friend 800 miles away to install on the lower rack herself. They're still in shipment to her so I can't say if the approach was a success or not.

To remove the old circulation pump part please note it had a left hand thread that was not clearly identified in the instructions. Check the direction of all threads before trying to disassemble the old parts. ie check the new parts and thread direction to ease disassembly of old unit. Main ring has left hand thread.

My husband was so excited that I found I parts to repair the bottom shelf of the dishwasher! It was so annoying trying to load and unload the bottom shelf with broken wheels. I wasn't home when he repaired the parts but I think it was pretty easy!

Ordered a replacement wheel along with a new wheel axle (stud roller). Placed the new axle into the new wheel and then simply snapped the new wheel/axle into place onto the lower rack where the broken wheel had previously been. Very easy. If you are ordering a replacement wheel a new axle/stud roller is an absolute must. The part has been redesigned and is a vast improvement over the previous wheels axle resulting in a much sturdier wheel and allows the wheels to roll easier. I plan to order replacement axle/stud rollers for all my lower rack wheels because I have now realized the actual problem which caused my wheel to fall off in the first place was due to the design of the axle. Many thanks to previous reviewers who suggested ordering the additional part.

I have been very upset mwith the GE appliance(s) I have because they just keep breaking. If I didnt have a service contract from when we bought them we would have not been able to keep them up. Even the service men say they make things now days to break down. The wheels and axles were not on my service contract because "that part was not stopping the dishwasher from working." I found this web site for the parts and was very happy to find somebody that wasn't ripping me off. Shipping time and repair was very, very satifactory. It works great now. THANK YOU

The sight was not helpful. It had a suggested wheel that was listed twice. Then there was an axle listed.It is not an axle, it is an insert in the wheel that reduces the size of the hole so it fits on the prong from the rack. Then it locks on the rack keeping the wheel from coming off.When I called the "800" number the clerk had no idea how the whole thing worked. He told me to call GE. I did and ordered directly from them. Got both parts and they work perfectly
