The wheels kept falling off the lower rack making it difficult to pull the rack out. Examining the issue, it appeared that the axles in particular were breaking. I ordered the new ones which had a different design from the originals, along with new wheels just to cover all bases. The wheels snap onto the axles and then you just snap the axles in place. The new axle design was both simpler and more stable. Took 10 minutes, cost about $30 for everything, and problem solved.

we followed the instructions as posted on your web site. Once the dishwasher was apart it was self explanatory. We did however need pliers to separate the wires from the old soap dispenser.

Latch on soap dispenser broke

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

Replacing the soap dispenser was relatively easy, But a word of caution.when I removed the front panel, as it fell off, it pulled the electrical tape out of the door. That of course ruined the electrical panel. Even better, that panel is no longer made. So unless you really want a new dishwasher, be sure you support the front panel when removing. Probably the easiest way to do that (I found out later) is to sit on the floor with the front panel on your legs as youminscrew it. Do read other reviews about how to do the repair as the part comes with no instructions and GE is of virtually no help.

My husband followed the directions included with the replacement part that we ordered. It was so great to read of others' experience installing the part! It works great and we will certainly use this site again. Thank you so much. We saved $100.00 doing it ourselves.

Cut power and water flow to the appliance. Laid appliance on its side, removed the electrical lead from the motor. Remove the mount from the back of the motor and loosened the two clamps- one to the sump and one to the discharge tube. Removed and replaced the pump/motor assy. with the new one, reinstalled the clamps, rear mount and electrical lead. Righted the unit and fired it up. Worked fine.

The parts arrived one day after shipping, and two days after the online order. The axles and the wheels slipped on easily, and the axles were actually better designed than the old ones that were still oo the rack. Now the rack rolls back and forth very smoothly. My daughter is very happy.

dirty dishes wash after wash

We noticed our detergent door was not opening on cue to dispense the soap and it was leaving our dishes dirty. It came to be that our spring was sprung on the detergent door. I researched it and I could either buy the spring or the whole detergent contraption (installing the contraption was one wrench easier but cost $35 more). Knowing my husband the way I do, I decided to do the more costly route. I followed the instructions from previous installers on here and me and my husband did it in 30 minutes! I do agree that it is a two man job for some of it as I stressed to him NOT to take the front off haphazardly, as it was $400 to replace that! We took the 12 or so screws off, detached the line to the detergent dispenser, reattached, screwed it into the door and replaced the front 12 or so screws again. Easy peasy! Unbelieveable!

Soap dispenser door wouldn't close

I've never done this before, so I took my time and it took 25 minutes. Now that I know what it looks like inside, it would only take maybe 15 minutes. There are 12 Phillips head screws to remove the front of the washer door. Once off, you need to unplug the large electrical plug to the "dashboard". Remove the screws holding the detergent dispenser, and unplug the two electrical plugs attached. Plug the two plugs back into the new dispenser, and replace the screws, being careful to not tighten to tight. Replace the front of the dishwasher door, with the 12 screws and you're done. Easy job!

I ordered new wheels but had to reorder the axle rods after finding out the axle rod clips did not come with the wheels, no big deal, the representative from Partselect.com was very helpful. It was nice to speak with a real person on a Saterday morning. Thanks Partselect, Jason-Snowmass Village

Took off the old wheel. Popped out the broken axle with a needle nose pliers. Snapped the new axle onto the wheel. Snapped the new axle/wheel assembly onto the rack. Repeat as needed. Done!
