After finding the leak source I have targeted the piece part on your web. It came 2 days after and I replaced the defective part by the new one. I switch off the water, untied the nut to release the pipe, take out the part.

The plastic wheels kept falling off the bottom rack of the dishwasher

The old wheels and attachment brackets were easily removed since they were always falling off. I ordered all new brackets and wheels, but it turns out I didn't need new wheels. If your original wheels are in good condition, they are the same size as the new ones and fit the new brackets. The new attachment brackets are built differently than the ones that came with the dishwasher, but (a good thing considering the originals only lasted 1 1/2 years). The new brackets and wheels snapped together and snapped into place on the dishwasher in minutes--no tools were needed. It took longer to cut the parts out of the packaging than to install them. The bottom rack now rolls out like it did when it was brand new. Definitely worth the few dollars in parts.

Easy repair-removed hex nuts and and screws to pop out old part and replace with new one. New part works better than the original! 1st replacement part arrived with a broken piece, a quick, courteous phone call got a replacement sent out. It took a 2nd phone call to obtain the refund, but the customer care reps are efficient and friendly. I would order from them again for positive service reasons alone.

Simply remove broken wheels and clip on replacements. No tools are necessary for this fix and the replacement was inexpensive and easy to install. The kit worked beautifully.

The lower dishrack connectors on the original roller axle parts had loosened so the rollers kept falling off

  • Customer: DONALD from PORTLAND, ME
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required:
  • 2 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
1. assemble each of the new rollers and axles by inserting the axle through the roller from the back side; push until the two parts snap together; 2. remove the cutlery basket, take the lower dishrack out of the dishwasher and turn it upside down; 3. remove the old rollers from the dishrack and send them for recycling; 4. push each roller on the corresponding wire shaft of the dishrack, with the axle connector arm against the vertical part of the shaft, pushing the roller assembly against the shaft until it snaps together. NOTE: the new rollers are wider than the originals and fit snugly on the tracks; no wobbling; the connector snaps are an improved design that should last as long as the dishwasher.

lower arm lifts off and new sets right on. The upper arm needed a "holding" screw removed (from under the shelf) and replaced with the new arm.

Bottom dish rack would not roll in and out because several wheels were off because of broken axles. It had to be lifted to get in and out which resulted in many chipped and broken dishes.

I removed the bottom rack from dishwasher. Took off the wheels with the broken axles. Put the new axles on the new wheels and slipped them on the rack. They fit perfectly and rack now glides in and out smoothly. Easy as pie, and took less than 10 minutes. Parts arrived in just two days. Thanks for the great service.
