Pieces of the lower dishrack were loosing the plastic coating and snapping off.

First of all, I removed the existing lower dishrack. That was a piece of cake! The part that was tricky was getting the spray arm out of the center so that it could be placed into the new dishrack. I finally figured out that I simply had to twist this piece (I think to the right) to remove it. I reversed this step to place the spray arm assembly into the new dishrack. And then VOILA...I just slid the new dishrack in place!

Lower rack had rusted and tines were breaking off

The lower rack of my dishwasher was falling apart right before my eyes. Tines were breaking off and there was so much rust that my dishes were beginning to become stained. After reading the comments posted at PartsSelect, I decided to try replacing the rack instead of buying a whole new dishwasher. From the posted comments I was able to figure out that the spray tower could be easily removed if I pressed down on it and turned it counterclockwise. After removing the old rack and sliding in the new one, I simply reversed the order, pressing the plastic tower down and turning it clockwise. It was SO simple I was embarassed that I had waited so long to attempt it, and that I had considered replacing a perfectly good dishwasher just because the lower rack was falling apart! I'd also like to add that the rack came in two days! Great service, great price, great web site. Thanks!

Racks were rusted and the tines were breaking off

The bottom rack was easiest, just picked it up out of the dishwasher and moved the sprayer and the silverware holder from the old rack to the new rack and set it back in the dishwasher. The top rack was a little tricky, it took a minute to figure out to remove the little end-caps on the runners and then it just slid out. Slid the new one in, replaced the caps and moved the upper rack basket. It took less than 15 minutes to fix and now it's like a brand new dishwasher!

Rusted upper and lower racks, broken tines

Read the experiences here, very helpful. Bottom slides out first - really easy. The new part comes with rollers, you don't need to remove the old ones. Now the only problem, getting the sprayer off the bottom basket. Look carefullty, you must use a screwdriver to release one side of the sprayer, then it works off easily. Make sure you note the orientation of the base of the sprayer. Reverse steps above and you are done. New tray slides in. Our new tray was a bit wider than the old one so we needed to use a bit of pressure to "shrink" the back just a wee bit.

The upper is easy also. Since the rails are uneven, make sure you put the high rollers on the high side no matter what your wife told about how it is supposed to go in. The end caps snap inward and slide out of the rails. Easy once you know. The uneven rails are obvious once you notice. Total time was 45 minuts, 30 of which was figuring out how to get the sprayer off without damage.

Would be nice to know the factory recommendation for removing the sprayer.
