Upper Roller and Axle - Kit of 4

The dishwasher roller assembly attaches to the dishrack located in the upper level of the dishwasher. It allows the dishrack to slide and roll easily. If the upper rack keeps falling off the track in dishwasher, the door will not close, the door makes noises, and/ or dishes are not cleaning properly, then it is best to replace it for more security. A flat-blade screwdriver is the only tool needed for this installation. Slide open the upper dishwasher rack and remove retaining tab from both ends of the rack and slide it out. Locate the older roll assembly, remove it, and replace the rollers. Remember to put back the tabs on each side before sliding it back in. Make sure the dishwasher is off before starting this installation project.

Rollers broke

First, let me say that I was amazed at how fast my part ariived. I ordered it on a Sunday evening and it arrived Monday afternoon. When the part arrrived, I got all of my tools out so that my wife would think I was doing a really big project. Then, when she was not looking, I used some needle nose pliers to snap off the straps from the old broken rollers on the rack. Then I used some regular pliers to slide off the old, broken rollers. Then, I snapped on the new rollers with my hand and placed the new strap onto the rack also with my hand. Then, even though it was done, I told my wife I had to go to Home Depot to get a tool that I did not have but really I just went to get a chili burger - It took longer to get the chili burger then it did to get the dishwasher fixed. We had some friends over the next day and my wife was bragging about how I fixed the dishwasher and saved her hundreds of dollars.

One roller failed. Shaft disconnected from roller. Basket would drop down partially.

First, I was impressed by how easy it was to identify the parts needed for repair. The one inch grid and 3 pictorial projections is great.
In the process of removing my upper basket to gain access to the defective basket roller, I broke one of the Rail End Caps. At first I thought that I would have to replace the whole upper basket, but then I realized I could order a set of 4 rollers and an End Cap.
I ordered the parts on a Sunday night, got email confirmation on Monday. On Tueaday I checked the shipping status on-line to learn the parts shipped on Monday and arrived in a depot about 30 miles away in the middle of the night. They were put on a local truck Tuesday morning. My doorbell rang about 6 PM Tuesday night. Nobody was at the door but my package was there!
I retrieved the package with four Rollers and two End Caps.

About 15 minutes later I installed one roller and one End Cap. I carefully removed the remaining End Cap, slid the basket out, popped off the old broken roller and snapped the new one in place. I slid the basket back on the guides and replaced the End Caps (one new, one old). It took me about 15 minutes to do the job. Now that I'm "experienced", I think I could do it in about 4 minutes next time!
Decided to save the extra parts I ordered until next time something breaks! The other old rollers were in good shape but were a little stiff so I gave them a shot of Silicone Spray. Works absolutely great now!
Of course I have told my story to a few friends and they were impressed!
Thanks

Rack rollers were broken, so the upper tray didn't work

I removed the end caps from one end of each slide, then put the rack rollers on the slides, snapped the rack rollers onto the tray, installed the tray in the machine, put the end caps on the slides, and voila, done.

Upper roller and axle were broken

Initially it was difficult to figure out how to remove the stopper, but after watching the video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJ_q7toNGHQ) it made easy to do the replacement.

Clips on roller and axle had broken

Putting the new roller on the self was extremely easy - getting the end of the rack off to remove the shelf was a bit difficult, but I did accomplish it in just a minute or two.

Broken rollers on the top rack

Removed the end caps on the rails (push in the retaining clip and pull towards the front), removed the rack from the dishwasher, unclipped the old rollers, assembled the new wheels and retaining clips, installed the new roller assemblies and finally installed new retaining clips for the rails. (bought new clips just in case the old ones did not remove cleanly) Entire repair was too easy. I imagine a serviceman would have charged $75 for that.

Broken axle

I removed the end cap (PS2370502) which, if your DW is as old as mine, will probably break (and it did), and slid the metal track back out of the way. I then twisted the broken axle loose with pliers. Snapped the new axle/wheel assembly in place, slid the metal track over the wheel and replaced the end cap. NOTE: If you read this prior to ordering, the axle/wheel assembly comes in a package of FOUR. I needed TWO assemblies so now I have TWO PACKAGES of FOUR and have opened an appliance parts distributor.

One of the roller axles broke

I removed the cap end of the upper slide. That was the hardest part of the job. The rest was easy. Removed the old roller and snapped on the new one and replaced the cap. The removing and putting the back the slider cap the the key and most difficult part of the job.

One of the four wheels broke

Easy fix. Works much better now. Followed one of the other repair stories and worked like a charm. Pulled the front slide stops out by twisting slightly then pulled the rack out. Snapped in new wheels and axles and put it all back together.

Roller pins worn out, broken

Simply had to remove the stopper blocks from the rails (needed pliers), pull out the rollers and slide in the new ones, then replace the blocks and straighten the now slightly bent metal on rail ends. Parts arrived within a few of days, repair was extremely easy and parts work great-- now the wife is happy...so everyone is happy. Will certainly look at PartSelect.com for future fixes!

Two of the pieces that held the top rack broke

I googled the question, "How do I get the top rack end piece off?" and the answer appeared on someone's blog. We were surpised we were able to get the repair done ourselves, as we usually rely on our son. I I had ordered two kits thinking that there would be only one piece that I needed.

Replaced wheel on upper dish rack

Tough part was removing the two end clips. Arm on back pulls back to allow the clip to pivot and come out. Wheel replacement was a snap (literally). Old wheel unclips from the rack and the new clip snaps on. Very easy!
