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.

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!

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.

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

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).
