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.

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

Replaced all 8 of the wheels and axles (the old axles wouldn't hold the wheels in place any longer). Replaced the tub gasket because of cuts from knives. Both fixes were relatively easy to do, although directions for the tub gasket would have been nice!

We had to replace the soap dispenser. My husband is not very handy & this was a snap. You take off the front panel (cover) of the sishwasher & simply unscrew the old one & screw in the new one. I probably could have done it myself.

Remove all wheels on one side. Use pliers to remove broken axles from wheels. Pop in new axles, then go to lower rack and attach to rack by pushing axle pinch mechanism onto rack support. New axles do not look like old ones—they are improved.

We ordered 4 wheels and axels, took off the old wheels, assembled the new wheels by popping the axel into the wheel (really simple) and then snapping them onto the post. It was incredibly simple. We waited 3 days for the wheels to arrive,the mailing cost was more than the parts! The result is amazing, the lower rack now runs smoothly and sits inside the washer as it should do without falling down all the time. Well worth the small amount of effort to find the right part and much cheaper than buying a new one!

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!
