Basket Wheels Were Falling Off

  • Customer: John from Magnolia, TX
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers

This was a simple part swap. The stud rollers are the small peg-clips that hold the wheel on the lower dish rack. Removing the old stud rollers from the wheels required a pair of pliers. I then popped the new stud rollers into the old wheels and snapped them back onto the lower dish rack. I scored some major points from my frustrated wife -- easy, fast fix!

Removed empty basket from dishwasher. Placed basket upside down and removed remaining wheels from basket by detaching worn axel from attachment points. ie, No tools needed for this procedure. Once axel and wheels were removed, I squeezed the end of the old axel with needle nose pliers or regular pliers to relieve the outward pressure and pushed the old axel out of the wheels. Easy, popped right out.
Positioned new axel against the outer wheeel hole and applied thumb/finger pressure to snap in new axel. Took the wheel with the new axel and
attached it to the basket at the original position. New axel grips the basket like a clothes pin would.
Continued and replaced all eight axels at this time.
Replace basket in machine, stand back and admire work and parts!!!! Parts received promptly with no hassels. Excellent company to do business with, clear photos and ordering forms.
Will definately re order again if needed. Thank You.

After removing the screws, the front of the dishwasher easily came off. I put 2 screws back in to hold the control panel in place. I did not want that to dangle while replacing the part. The part came off easily after removing the screws. Everything went together easy.

The repair was easy. Removed all the screws from the inside door panel, approx. 11. Watch out for that last screw as there isn't anything else holding the outside panel, inside panel and control panel together other than those screws. I then unplugged the old dispenser backed out another 6 screws and replaced the old dispenser with the new one. Put it all back together within about a half hour.

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.

Old rack was rusted out and missing most of the wheels.

Easiest repair ever. My new rack arrived in three days, opened the box and slid it in. Better quality than the original. Excellent service!

plugged Detergenent Pump & noisy Blower

Access to the parts was easy. Simply remove the outer door cover.

The only problem was that I had to disassemble and reassemble the dishwasher two times. Other than that, the actual repair was very simple; remove the old, replace with new and test with the built in diagnostic.
