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.

The repair was so simple a child could do it. It took less than five minutes and now the drawer rolls smoothly and is quite sturdy.

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.

The parts arrived promptly following my order. I needed to replace four wheels on the dishwasher slide-out basket. It was easy to order using the visual parts-explosion images on the site. I needed to order wheels and saw they each required a hub, so the ordering was easy.
The assembly needed no tools, and the repacement parts were better in fact than the original parts they replaced, as they snapped easily onto the basket.
The entire process, from ordering to assembly, was a good experience, and I bookmarked the site for my future parts-replacement requirements.

Wheels were broken, continually fell off

Actually, given the lack of instructions, I installed the wheels incorrectly. Ordered a complete new bottom rack. What a difference! GE re-engineered a poorly designed product and the new rack with improved wheel installation is great.
One complaint. My product information tells me the racks are guaranteed for 5 years. My rack also had some rust.I tried to call GE but got only very unhelpful voice prompts. Do not have GE rapairmen in area. Rack was just under 5-year warranty when I started trying to contact GE.
But it was worth the money to get the new rack.

So impressed! I got my parts 2 days after I ordered them. Installation was super easy. I wonder why I waited so long to order! It was such a quick easy fix. The wheel axel is redesigned from the original ones. No more fighting to get my lower rack pulled out! Thanks for great service Parts Select!

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.

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.

We ordered 4 wheels and axels, took off the old wheels, assembled the new wheels by popping the axel into the wheel (really simple) and then snapping them onto the post. It was incredibly simple. We waited 3 days for the wheels to arrive,the mailing cost was more than the parts! The result is amazing, the lower rack now runs smoothly and sits inside the washer as it should do without falling down all the time. Well worth the small amount of effort to find the right part and much cheaper than buying a new one!

wheels would not stay on

poor engineering design of lower basket wheel attachment. With time the c-clips designed to attach wheels to basket axles lost their 'torque-grip' strength allowing the wheels to fall off into the bottom of the dishwasher and melt against the drying element. The replacement clips for the wheels have a very different design and attach to the basket axles in a manner that makes it almost impossible to come off without forcing/breaking them off. I don't know what the name of the new design is, but my hat's off to the engineer(s) who developed it. Amazing how something so simple can make life so much easier. WBB

The original design of the axle made it susceptible to coming off

Removed old wheel and axle. New wheel pops on to axle, then put hole in wheel on wheel stud and align clip to attach to vertical support behind wheel stud. Push wheel on and clip attaches. Easy!
