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.

Very easy - remove the screws around the inside of the door. 6 screws and 2 plugs to remove the assembly. Just be careful not the strip the sheetmetal screws when putting it back together. No screwguns...

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.

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.

slow leak from the pump while operating

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set

followed instructions that came with the part. My dishwasher had a slightly different configuration than what the directions said so disassembly took a few minutes to figure out. Once that was done, the removal of the old impeller assembly and installation of the new went quite smoothly. The replacement assembly had a "grater" which was not present on my original however it installed perfectly and no longer leaks.

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 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).

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.
