The top rack began to fall out of the track on the right side. Replacing it into the track was not a permanent fix. I could not visually see anything wrong but obviously something was. A web search quickly brought up a picture of that area of our machine. I ordered the part and upon installation,

I had to getto the side of the machine. After that, it was simply removing 4 screws and removing the old part, replacing the screws and putting the rack back in the track.

CustomerJerry from Peoria IL

Upper rack would not pull all the way forward.

I removed the stops on both sides of the rack, and removed the rack. I then pulled the rail on the right side as far forward as possible, and then used needle nosed pliers to slightly bend upward the stop in the middle, allowing the bearings to clear and fully removed the track, leaving the housing in place. I then slid the replacement track into the housing, being sure that the bearing bracket cleared, and bent the stop back into place. I then repositioned the rack into the track and put the front stops back into place. Job finished!! My choice of terminology may not be accurate, but it worked, not once but twice. A few months ago, I had to do this with the left side.
