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

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

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.

It was an install. My problem is that the drain tube is not standard to other dishwashers,so I could not get it at either of the local home improvement centers. The good news is that it is larger than the standard, and offers better discharge.

Very easy, saw the parts I needed online, ordered them, and installed them. Easier than I thought. Saved probably $200 in having a repair man come to the house. Outstanding results! Thank you!

I ordered wheels on this wonderful site that looked like they made more sense and replaced all eight on my dishwasher and FINALLY the dishwasher isn't the nightmare it has been. It took seconds to pop in the clip to the roller and pop it on the rack. Thank you PartsSelect

Contacted PartsSelect online on Thursday. Saturday the parts arrived. My son and I pulled the old connectors off the wheels and snapped the new ones in place. Then he snapped all the wheels onto the rack. DONE. I still find myself wanting to lift the rack now but the wheels are on and I am happy. All around EXCELLENT. Thank you.

Wheels kept coming off dishwasher basket upon pull out

I hand removed the snap in wheel axels and replaced the axles with new ones, by hand, no tools needed. On this dishwasher basket the wheeel axels just snap onto the metal cage "wires" of the roll out basket holding the dishes. Very simple. Used pliers to squeeze each old axle retaining nubs,from each of the eight wheels, , then just slipped (pulled the wheels off the axles) and discared only axles (that here the problem, detaching frequently from grasping the pull out dish basket, due to heat taking the temper out of their gripper (to basket).

Lower rack wouldn't roll because axles were broken

I first tried the local appliance shop i got the wrong parts twice. I then wrote the model and serial #'s of my unit and found parts select. Got the right parts quickly and all I had to do was pull the old rack out and slide the new one in. Viola she was done ! Thanks Part Select !

Only one axle was broken, but I replaced all 8 because GE had redesigned the axle to prevent future problems. Decided to just replace them all and be done with it. Took 10 minutes, start to finish and all is well.
