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.

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.

Simply pull out the old axle and snap in the new one. It is simple. Also the replacement axels were MUCH better quality than the originals. The bottom tray now slides in and out very easily. Note, if you have this problem, you do not need to replace the wheel, just the axle.

Really all it took was removal of the old wheels which would not stay on anyway and the installation of the new ones. That required the axle and wheel being put together and the installing both of those on the lower rack. I was about to buy a new dishwasher when the salesmen told me about a product called Lemi Shine it saved my hundreds of dollars and the inside of my dishwasher looks brand new. With my new wheels I am good to go again.

Wheels on lower basket kept falling off, axel worn out.

  • Customer: Robert from Lakewood, NJ
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers
  • 1 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
Removed empty basket from dishwasher. Placed basket upside down and removed remaining wheels from basket by detaching worn axel from attachment points. ie, No tools needed for this procedure. Once axel and wheels were removed, I squeezed the end of the old axel with needle nose pliers or regular pliers to relieve the outward pressure and pushed the old axel out of the wheels. Easy, popped right out.
Positioned new axel against the outer wheeel hole and applied thumb/finger pressure to snap in new axel. Took the wheel with the new axel and
attached it to the basket at the original position. New axel grips the basket like a clothes pin would.
Continued and replaced all eight axels at this time.
Replace basket in machine, stand back and admire work and parts!!!! Parts received promptly with no hassels. Excellent company to do business with, clear photos and ordering forms.
Will definately re order again if needed. Thank You.

I removed the screws inside the door. I removed the screw for the control module - on the side. I opened the module and saw the contacts were blackened from the over current. I ordered the module. It cost 1/6th of the dishwasher. It showed up three days later. I removed the module completely and re-installed the new module and put the door back together. It worked.

We received our parts for our dishwasher within 2 days. It was very simple to find the parts on your site, and very easy to install. Our dishwasher is back to normal and the racks roll in and out easily. I would recommend ordering from PartSelect to anyone.
