Corroded rack and broken basket

Although the (top) dishrack assembly included the nylon wheeles, it was easier to replace the old one by disengaging it from its wheels and installing the new rack on the old wheels kept in the slider track. The snap hook that held each wheel to the old rack was popped loose (finger pressure) and the old rack removed. The new rack was held in place and each of the four wheels snapped to it. Each wheel fits into a wire post on the basket and the plastic hook snaps onto the wire frame. The most difficult part of the 'repair' was removal of the handle from the old silver ware basket. I used screwdrivers to simultaneously pry the four tabs of the halde out of the slots on the basket and pulled (hard!) the handle off. It snapped easily into place on the new basket.

Bottom of silverware basket broke

received new basket without a basket handle; had to remove handle from old basket & attach it to new basket; took 2 separate tries to remove old handle & each try took about an hour; used screwdriver & pliers but had to be careful not to break handle; eventually used dimes to pry open & hold the attached sections of the handle open in order to free the handle from the old basket; we sure hope the new basket lasts a lot longer than the 2 years that the old basket lasted before it broke.

Broken top rack roller

I simply looked at the other side (which was still functioning) and put the new one on but in reverse (left side/right side) I also was missing the end stop to the slide and simply popped that in and snapped closed. Two simple parts and 15 mins. solved a whole lot of aggrivation,
without any aggravation! wish I had found this site sooner!

My old silverware basket was wearing through on the bottom and silverware was sticking through

Replaced with the new basket. However, the part had been replaced, and I do not like the new setup. One basket has been replace with 2 that are hooked together. Each basket has a cover, but it covers the whole side, not just a part. In my old basket, I had a part of the basket with a cover that could hold plastic lids and measuring spoons that can easily wash out of the basket and hit the heating element on the bottom. My "fix" was to remove both lids and use the lid from the old basket to cover one part of the new basket. It's not very satisfactory, as it is not hinged and had to be removed and tucked in each time!

The silverware basket needed replacement since there were cuts in some places on the bottom which caused utensils to fall partway through.

Some of bottom wire in the silverware basket had rusted out allowing silverware to fall through and interfere with rotating arm.

The "repair" was actually a replacement. My wife did it. She took out the old, damaged basket and dropped in the new, replacement basket. She removed the slotted lids because she doesn't think they are necessary and she doesn't like them. I got the old basket for holding small items in my workshop. The lids will be thrown away, unless I can come up with a use for them.

Broken bottom on silverware basket and broken hinge on rack

I removed old hinge and snapped in new one.The new basket was identical to the original and PartSelect.com was the only source I found that had it in stock. I took the old handle off the broken basket with a screw driver and snapped it in place on new basket, job done.
