This upper dishwasher dishrack roller, also known as a dishrack wheel, allows you to roll the dishwasher rack easily on the support rails. If your dishwasher rack is disconnected or the rack is broken, then replacing this part might be the solution. The first step in this repair is to remove the upper dishrack from the track, the next step is to remove the defective rack roller and replace it with the new one by sliding it onto the shaft and locking it in. No tools are required for this replacement and customers rate this project as easy. The roller is entirely made from plastic and is just over an inch in diameter.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
I opened the end stop of the rack, replaced the roller, and put the end stop back on. I can't believe I paid the repairman the last time $125????? An he put in a regular screw that rusted and broke the roller. Took me 3 minutes! Thanks

I watched the installlation video found on the wedsite and followed his directions.
Removed the old dishrack shelf by taking off the end caps. A screw driver was used to release the plastic end caps. The old dishrack shelf is now able to just roll out and the new shelf is rolled in and the old end caps replaced. Quick and easy plus it makes the dish machine look new. The new silverware basket requires no tools just replace the old one.
Once I figured out how to get the endcap off the roller track (allow several minutes, because it was designed by some dork), I slipped the old roller off the track, put the new roller on, and clipped it to the rack. Then I put the track cap back on (really easy once you've figured out how to get it off) and it was good as new.As for how the cap comes off, it's difficult to describe. But it may help you to know that the cap, despite what it looks like at first, is actually surprisingly long and folded on top of itself. Pulling it directly out doesn't work; you have to unfold it before there's any chance of getting it out.
snapped on new roller and job done
The sketches on PartSelect.com were very-very helpful, in picking up the parts to order and also while fixing the parts.For oven range. First I removed the two screws that hold the flat top in place and lifted the flat top. I then unscrewed the two screws that holds the element kit. Disconnected the three wires, and replaced the broken element with the new one. All done.For dishwasher, just snapped the parts in and all set.
First, removed end cap in steel sliding upper rail, second, removed broken roller, third, attached new roller, you can look at other rollers to see how it goes on, fourth, feed new roller into track, replace end cap. Takes less than 10 min, saved 85. 00 Bucks.
Took off old part. Modified new roller w'knife. Found a nut and bolt in scrap pile. Attached.
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!
Pretty much just snapped things into place. The new spray arms solved the problem. The old ones were clogged, and there's no way to clean them from the inside (dumb design, in my opinion). Happy times!
They just snapped in to place. Once I realized where they went. They are not the exact rollers needed but will do until I get the right ones. The rack will not come out as far as it should because of the difference. Other than that....easy.
I brought the rack to my computer and pulled up your diagram. It was relatively easy to follow the diagram to install the parts. They didn't need any tools, just snap them in place. Wife factor, very high, she can now use the dishwasher again.
The replacement parts were the wrong ones so I combined the old parts with the replacement parts to get it repaired.
1st you must remove the guide rail stop which I bought just in case I needed to destroy the original to get it out since others said it was a bit difficult to remove. Turns out that if you look at the large picture of the rail stop, you'll notice that you need to stick a screwdriver into the side right near the endcap in the slot and pry the endcap toward you/front of dishwasher. Once you pry the encap toward you, you'll see there is a plastic hinge on the back end of the rail stop that holds this clamshell style clip together after the endcap is snapped apart. Time to slide out the old dishrack roller, slide new one in clipping it is intuitive, but you can cheat and look at how the other side of the wash basket and see how the other one clips since chances are you did not break both sides (or did you?!?!). Clamshell endcap back and snap in place, done.
Remove end cap of guide. Remove broken roller. Install new roller, clip in place, replace end cap. easy peasy.
