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.

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.

Control panel on door of dishwasher was mostly unresponsive

With the dishwasher door open, remove the screws around the inside edge of the door, then carefully separate the outer door enclosure from the door interior. Release the ribbon cable attaching the control panel to the interior connector socket. There is a hole in the top edge of the door enclosure allowing access to the underside of the control panel, push up through there to start forcing the old panel off. Unthread the ribbon cable, and scrape off any old remaining adhesive. Remove the adhesive backing paper from the new panel, thread the ribbon cable through the appropriate hole in the door enclosure, then line up and press the new panel firmly into place. Join and secure the enclosure with the screws. Done!

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.
