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!

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!

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

The parts came really fast, I did not even have time to think about them...when they came I was like what? They are here? WOW! anyway, I just changed the wheels with the new axel and perfect! now it works wonderful...and it was so easy! I can't believe I dealt with that for as long as I did.

wheels that allowed racks to roll on were broken

Removed broken wheels & clips from the lower rack. Easily replaced the clips and wheels with the new clips & wheels which are better built then original. The dishwasher now operates better then in its new state because the bottom rack sits higher and the bottom arm swings more efficiently and the dishes are coming out cleaner.

Very annoying problem with wheels falling off of the bottom dishwasher rack. Thanks to good advice here, purchased wheels AND wheel axels. Axels snap into the wheels, and the wheels snap on the bottom rack. Wheels are wider that the originals, and these snap ons are a much better design. Rack rolls in and out better than brand new!!

Wheels kept coming off dishwasher basket upon pull out

  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

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.

put the wheel on the axle clip, then attached the assembly to the rack, snapped on. Much better design but may still need replacing down the line.
