The track roller on your dishwasher allows the tracks that hold the upper dish rack to slide in and out effectively. If you notice that your upper dish rack is struggling to slide in and out, you may need to purchase a new track roller kit to replace the damaged one. This kit comes with the roller, one screw, and a washer for easy assembly. The roller is approximately 1-1/4 inches in diameter and the screw is approximately 1-1/2 inches in length. To complete this repair, you will need to remove the upper dish rack, as well as the rail.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
The repair was easy. A couple turns of a screwdriver was all that was necessary to remove the rollers and slide assembly. The I simple installed the new rollers. Slid the slide into place between the rollers and then added the back caps to the slide. Replaced the rack rollers on the top basket and then slid it into position between the new slides. Once in place, I attached the end caps to the front of the slide. Simple and quick.

Unscrewed the old roller. But it was difficult to replace the roller as the rim of the roller would not fit into the slide mechanism and allow the screw to engage the hole. What I thought would be a 2 minute job turned out to be more like 20 minutes. I suspect there is a way to release the slide stop so that the top basket could be removed with its slide bar, but I did not see how to do that. I finally was able to "force" the screw into the hole
I installed new rollers and rack clips. The old ones had cracked and would not keep the rack in the tracks. I went to buy a new dishwasher which would have cost around $500. I bought $60 worth of parts although I probably could have just bought the clips for $15 and now the dishwasher is good to go! A real money saver.
