This is a case of weak OEM design. Substantial (cup) weight placed on the rack will ultimately cause these wheels to break under load stress. My fix went slightly beyond the design by installing 8 cents worth of washers between the wheel and the screw head. That way any slack was reduced so that the wheels were less stressed at an angle. The rack now sits square and the wheels more true than design. I picked up some lock washers at local hardware store and flattened them out to fit smooth. The parts supplied by PartSelect were perfect fits to OEM. This is a truly easy repair. If your top rack keeps falling off the guides due to broken tub wheels this will take care of the problem. I will add that the parts that you can obtain through PartSelect are adequate without improvising. I just went for a more robust fix to the original design with additional washers. Hope this is helpful.

Got the parts in a DAY! Wheels were broken and worn causing top tray to slip off runners- new wheels were easy to put in-used the screwsfrom the old ones and banged out the job in about 20 minutes, including letting my son help. Thanks Partselect, you've hooked a new DIY'er (my son)

Removed old gasket and clean surfaces on tub and door before installing new gasket. New gasket has a small notch in the middle for top center. Install top then down sides for best results. Door gasket snaps into existing groove so no tools are required.

There was an excellent "how to" video on the internet which also pointed me to the part I needed. I did not even remove the dishwasher as recommended. I removed the lower kick plate, removed the power connector at the leaking input, removed the bad nut and installed the new nut.

I removed the 2 screws that hold the dishwasher in place. Slide out the unit just far enough to access the brass nuts on the heating element. Pulled off the wire, and replaced the broken nut with the new nut. Replaced the wire, slide the unit back into place and reattached the 2 under counter screws. Done!!!

I only had one break, but bought both to replace. I don't agree with those that say you have to slide the dishwasher out to repair. I simply removed the lower kick plate, and replace the springs in no time. Very easy as was ordering the parts. I will return here for all my appliance parts in the future. Hope I don't actually need any.
