Replace rack adjusters - wheel were broken

Replacement was pretty easy after figuring out how to unsnap/unlock the old pieces. Tools only used to do a little prying and poking, but really aren't needed. Everything either snaps or slides together. Piece of cake

Broken rollers on upper basket

I took the broken basket adjuster off and then attached the new one. It wasn't too difficult, however some removal instructions and re-install instructions( or just a picture supplied) would have been helpful. This isn't an issue for a mechanically inclined person, but would be a challenge for someone that isn't. Thanks.

Top rack adjuster on left broke. Wheels part of adjuster

Took apart broke piece and disassembled parts. Ordered new main part but used old clips to reassemble. Part arrived swiftly (2 days), put together and works fine. Saved repair bill and house call. Used screwdriver to pry apart main clip that attached adjuster to top of rack. There were 5 clip type pieces in total and analyzed right hand adjuster as model for reassembly.

Guide wheels broke off

Pulled upper tray out. Removed old adjusters and replaced with new. The pictures in the installation instructions were bad (blurry and hard to distinguish). Had problems with the first side button. Put it in before installing the wheel base on the second side. Went much easier that way. You did need a star tip for the screws.

The tabs that held to wheels on the adjuster broke off on 3 of the 4 wheels. The rack would not stay in place when pulled out.

I took a picture of the old assemblies position. Then I removed one side. It was original and held in place by plastic snaps. We followed the instructions on the first side. The metal wheel assembly and the housing have matching channel & grove so the metal fits into the channel on the housing. We accidentally placed the metal wheel assembly in the adjustment housing backwards then could not get it out and broke two small plastic tabs getting it back out. Turns out that was not a fatal error. We had a bit of difficulty determining the exact positioning of the actuator in the housing and how the housing fit to the rack. One has to really look hard at the instructions. !!!A YouTube video would be very nice for this!!! Once we had the positioning then the assembly went together very easily. The two screws went in easily with a ratchet nut driver and star bit. (an adapter is provided for those who don't have the star bit). The second side was incredibly easy since I knew exactly how to put it together the second time. First side: 20-25 min. Second side 5 min.

Wheels broken off top rack.

Watched the u tube video. Very clear! He said up front what kind of screwdriver to use and it was necessary to have that kind and size of screwdriver.

Broken wheel on upper rack slider assembly

The left side took 20 minutes the right side took 3 minutes. The instructions do not describe how to remove the old assembly but rather just assume you have already done it. It takes one minute to see how the six parts fit together and then you just have to begin disassembling the easiest piece. The final cover removal required a flat head to pry apart two pieces held together in a pressure fit with round tabs locking them in. I was worried about breaking a piece in case the new parts didn't fit properly and I would have to reinstall the old pieces temporarily but you just have to keep the faith and open it up for final removal. Installing the new parts was simple however it would be nice if the images on the instructions were of better quality. The result was perfect and the kit feels more robust than the original parts. There is nothing here an average person can't do with a screwdriver and a little patience.

Roller wheels on rack broke-- needed replacement / repair

"level of difficulty" and "time to repair" are very tricky. IF I'd have relied on the supposed detailed photos sent with the parts, the "level of difficulty" would have been "impossible" and the "time to repair" would have been "takes forever; still trying to figure it out." However, as another commentator mentioned, there is a Youtube clip from KitchenAid that walks you through it. With that-- "difficulty" became "very easy" and time to repair became "10 minutes". Definitely watch the Youtube clip!!

Wheels broken, top rack kept falling off

First, this replacement kit seems to be of much better quality than the factory original. I was able to remove the old adjuster from the top rack with my hands - did break a little more in the process, but as this was destined for the garbage anyway, I wasn't delicate about it. The new adjuster kit snapped together easily with clear instructions and pictures in a matter of minutes, even with a 1, 3, and 5 year old "helping." Last step requires a screwdriver. I only replaced one side, for now, and it took longer to get the old adjuster off than it did to install new. Done in under ten minutes start to finish and works perfectly!

Upper rack wheel supports broke

Fairly straightforward install of the kit parts. I was glad to see the new parts were stainless steel and not the weak plastic. I wish I would have known this - I ordered two kits instead of one because I figured it would break again soon. I was very glad to finally find the included screwdriver to torx adapter - I forgot my torx set.
