Really all it took was removal of the old wheels which would not stay on anyway and the installation of the new ones. That required the axle and wheel being put together and the installing both of those on the lower rack. I was about to buy a new dishwasher when the salesmen told me about a product called Lemi Shine it saved my hundreds of dollars and the inside of my dishwasher looks brand new. With my new wheels I am good to go again.

Took the screws out of the inner panel to open it and expose the latch area. Found the door spring stuck to the insulation so we saved it. Used the part's list picture to figure out how to put the latch parts together (wish the picture was better). Reattached the inner panel. The latch works better now than when it was new....which makes us wonder.

Rack does not roll correct, falls into tub

Removed old wheels and axles, installed new axles in wheels, clipped into place. I purchased new wheels and axles. Probably only needed the axles. The front wheels are narrower than the rear wheels. This probably contributes to them falling off the track. Since I purchased 8 new wheels (all wide, now I know what the second part number was for)I put all wide on. Seems to be more stable that way. New straight style axle clip appears more robust than the old side clip style. Thanks Parts select

Replaced all 8 of the wheels and axles (the old axles wouldn't hold the wheels in place any longer). Replaced the tub gasket because of cuts from knives. Both fixes were relatively easy to do, although directions for the tub gasket would have been nice!
