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.

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.

Unsnapped the wheel axle from the rack. Separated the axle from the wheel. Attached the new axle to the wheel. Snapped the new axle on the rack. Repeated for all 8 wheels. Solid.

Very easy, saw the parts I needed online, ordered them, and installed them. Easier than I thought. Saved probably $200 in having a repair man come to the house. Outstanding results! Thank you!

I ordered wheels on this wonderful site that looked like they made more sense and replaced all eight on my dishwasher and FINALLY the dishwasher isn't the nightmare it has been. It took seconds to pop in the clip to the roller and pop it on the rack. Thank you PartsSelect

The lower rack wheels kept coming off

I examined the wheels and noticed that they were actually fine, it was just the clip on axles that had worn out. I had recently used a dishwasher cleaner, I think that was the straw that broke the camels back. The replacement axles that I ordered were actually a bit different than the original. It turns out they had been greatly improved, so the new ones snapped easily into place by hand. The lower rack rolls perfectly, like new!

The replacement studs that were suggested fixed the problem that we were having. The fix was easy and took less than ten minutes to take the broken studs out and snap the new ones into place. The studs are designed to hold onto the rack much tighter than the original studs and completely fixed the problem of the wheels falling off anytime you tried to move the bottom rack.

Ordered on a Friday and parts arrived Sat. No tools required. Pieces easily slipped into place. Dishwasher is all fixed. This site is much easier to use than GE's. Will use PartSelect for all future replacement parts.

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.

All the wheel axles were broken or loose on the bottom tray of the dishwasher.

The repair was so simple a child could do it. It took less than five minutes and now the drawer rolls smoothly and is quite sturdy.

The repair was very simple. I removed all eight wheels and discarded the old axles by pinching them out of each wheel and replacing them with the new (and improved) axles. I then turned the rack upside down and simply snapped the wheels back on the spindles. It took me longer to explain this than it took to make the repairs.

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
