This kit comes with the wheels, bumpers, fold down tine and flexrow retainer.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
I ordered the part and was hoping to just take out one rack and put in the other, there were NO instructions or even a diagram of the rack. There was a fold down rack that was not attached and a few parts that I have no idea what they are. This was very discouraging. The main thing is that the rack is quite a bit lighter than the original one so I doubt it will last very long. The price was more than I wanted to pay but I didn't have any options in replacement parts.

The dishrack came in one box I opened the box snapped on the rollers and the bumpers and put it in the dishwasher, could not have been easier Thank you partselect
I pulled off the old clips and easily replaced them with the new clips and popped on the wheels. I replaced 8 clips and 8 wheels in less than 15mins
There were no instructions with the part, but looking at the old rack it was simple to see how the parts should be assembled. Took the center part from the old rack, twisted off, and applied it to the center of the new rack. Snapped on the wheels and was done. Very simple assembly.
Repair went OK but there were no instructions at all. Just boxes full of parts. Otherwise,assembly went smoothly. The dishwasher works like new. ( I feel that the parts were way over priced)
This is the second time I have replaced a rack. You just pop on the new rollers and you're good to go!
We took the rollers off the old one (new ones came with the dishrack also) and put them on the dishrack (they snapped on). There was also an extra piece that we figured out how to put on. Then slid it in place and it was fine.
It was a piece of cake, just slapped together and slid it into place!
First, I checked the ripped box for damage to the dishrack. Fortunately, there was none. Then I looked for the instruction booklet. Unfortunately, there was none. And the parts bag was ripped and I did not know what was supposed to be in it. So, I rechecked the photo of the dishrack on the website and found that either parts were missing or the dishrack was different than illistrated. After a few moments of thought, I realized the latter was the case. I then figured I would have to use some deep thought to do the installation since neither the missing instruction booklet nor the unzoomable photo would help. So, I pulled out the tall thin thingamabob from the old dishrack and put it in the new one though it did not secure as tightly. Then I put the wheel units on just like the old one. What I could not immediately figure out was where the collapsible rack row was mounted. I eventually realized that the rod went into a hole in the wheel units and the latch mounted above one unit. I still have no idea where the two other tan clips go. Though the dishrack is different and thus requires different science to fill it, it appears to do the job.Thanks for asking.By the way, it was not blue.
The lower dish rack rolls directly out of the dishwasher without problem - there is no permanent attachment. The new rack comes as a kit, which includes the 4 required dish rack wheels (Part # 6 in the diagram). One part (only) from the original dish rack needs to be removed and re-installed on the new rack - the upper spray arm tower (Part #5 in the diagram). That is easily removed from the original rack with a 1/8 counterclockwise turn, to disengage the 'feet', and installed on the new rack with a 1/8 clockwise turn. The kit is designed to allow for use on multiple models, so there are 'extra' parts left over, after it is used for the DU8500XX-2 dishwasher. These can be discarded.
Kit didn't have the center conical piece. Easy to switch tho. I am impressed at the speed of which the part arrived.
Since there were no printed instructions, we looked at the photo schematic.Reassembly using the photo was easy by putting the old rack alongside the new one and adjusting the new rack spacing to match the old one.We also had new wheels which snapped on.We were delighted to repair and replace this good, older dishwasher rather than purchase a new one!
installed a new rack
The rack came with pictorial instructions which were fairly veg, however they were to the point. The wheels snapped into place easily, and the center water transfer tube twisted off the old one and twisted on the new one just fine. It is a very good idea to keep the old one out to look at as a guide. There were no instructions on how to remove the transfer tube, I was lucky to have already worked on these before. After that it fits and works just peachy.
Assemblies snap on, no tools needed
