Product Description

Dishwasher Upper Rack Adjuster Specifications

This OEM Dishwasher Upper Rack Adjuster is a grayish-black, plastic part which will require a screwdriver to install. It fits onto the dishwasher rack and connects it to the track allowing it to slide in and out. If broken then the rack will no longer slide properly, and the part must be replaced. The installation has been rated as "easy" by customers. Before beginning any repair, you should unplug the dishwasher and wear gloves to protect your hands. Check your model number and user manual to see if this part is right for you! Your dishwasher should have a left and right upper rack adjuster, and both are the same part. These parts are sold individually, so if you are looking to replace both, you will need to order two parts.

A small plastic knob, that holds the top rack of the dishwasher to the slide rail, broke.
My husband called Part Select and described the problem. After we sent a couple of photos to the technician, she determined the part that we needed...a top rack assembly unit...and it arrived within a few days.
I watched the video that Part Select provided and it made the job so much easier than if the new part had been sent with a booklet of diagrams and written instructions. The video showed exactly how to dismantle the old part and then install the new part. It was also helpful to compare the part I was working with to the same part on the other side of the rack so that I knew for sure that I had it positioned correctly.
The part and shipping cost about $70. It would have cost more than 3 times as much if I had to call a repairman.

One side had broken
This was tricky, not so much the difficulty of the repair so much as finding the right instructions. There weren’t any on your website. YouTube videos were all over the place in terms of specific set ups. Eventually I found the right one. This would have been very easy and would have taken less than 15 minutes if I had the right instructions from the start. Most of my time was taken with searching for instructions.

Draw not sliding properly. Water manifold low pressure.
Remove entire top rack and place on a large flat work surface. A small screwdriver is needed to release several plastic clips holding the upper drawer slider brackets and manifold in place. Carefully pry the clips free of their mounting holes and remove the bracket. Take some time to study how things are held together before removing anything since one plastic clip is closely affected by the others. Without pictures, and a video, it's really difficult to put into words. I must stress, do not force anything. When disassembling, use the opposite side to as a visual aid to reassemble.

plastic parts degraded and failed
I pulled the rack and removed failed parts, then reassembled. I would note that the videos are helpful as dishwasher racks can be a bit of a puzzle.

Why manufacturers use so much plastic in a heated environment is beyond me. The heat cycle degrades the plastic to failure - poor design!

Attachments from tray to upper rack adjuster broken
Upper tray removed and each rack adjuster removed and replaced one after the other. Only tool was screwdriver. Only knowledge was from the online videos. Only took 30 minutes or so. The repair could have been done more quickly if I wasn't fearful that the smaller plastic parts would break when pulled or pried away from the rack adjuster. The only mistake was not making sure the adjuster tabs were fully engaged in back and clicked in the front attachment.

The small knobs wore off that hold upper rack on the "drawer" guides.
I watched online repair video for replacing the part. 3 different clips held the part in place. Video showed how to properly remove each clip & also how to put them back on once part is replaced. Video was immensely helpful because I was afraid I break something else trying o remove them! I ordered & replaced the part by myself without help from my husband. My daddy would've been so proud. :)

Upper Rack Wouldn't Close
Hardest part was figuring out how to release and remove upper rack as mine did not match the instructions. After that is was tricky but not overly difficult. The instructions on-line did not make sense, but it all was fairly intuitive process. Take some before pictures, lol. Dishwaswasher works great.

The Adjuster tabs broke on both sides
Two of the four small nylon/plastic tabs on the adjusters that support the top rack on the rack slides, broke off (one on each side).

Before the new parts arrived, I printed the limited (but definitely helpful) instructions that were available and familiarized myself with the adjuster assemblies.

As practice, I took one adjuster assembly apart making notes of any "gotchas." The main gotcha I found is that the nylon/plastic parts are easy to break (obviously) as prying is involved during removal and replacement. It took me about 20 to 25 minutes to take one side apart and about 10 minutes to put it back together again.

When the new parts arrived, I was able to do the first side in about 10 minutes (removal and replacement), and the second side in about 5 minutes, all because I had printed the instructions, familiarized myself, and practiced. I hope this helps.

How do you remove the broken part installed a new one? Part ps11756150
For model number Model kude60hxss1
PartSelect logo
Hi Val, Thank you for your inquiry. Before beginning any repair please unplug the dishwasher and wear gloves to protect your hands. Release the track stops from the upper dishrack rails and pull the upper rack from the dishwasher and place it upside down on a work surface. Raise the wheels to the maximum height. Release the top of the long rear clip from the dishrack tine and push the clip down to the release point and remove it. Press the tab down on the front clip move the clip up to pull it off. Release the locking tabs on the clip in the middle of the height adjuster and remove the clip. Using a slot screw driver pry the housing cover down and out to release the upper tabs on each side. Pry the bottom of the housing cover out of the 2 lower locking tabs. Pull the housing cover off the rack. Remove the adjuster housing and wheel assembly and repeat the procedure on the other side. Slide the vertical portion on the new wheel assembly between the fourth set of vertical tines from the back of the dishrack and rotate the wheel assembly so that it lays flat against the side. Insert a positioner clip above the rear wheel and snap the tab into the slot. Install a positioner clip on the front wheel. Position the adjuster body over the vertical portion of the wheel assembly and push in into the slots. Locking tabs at the bottom of the adjuster body engage the the wheel assembly once it is fully inserted the tabs. Insert the actuator lever into the adjuster body with the thumb pad facing the front of the rack. Two half circle cut outs on the adjuster body hold the actuator in place. Push the adjuster body down and install the adjuster cover. Install the adjuster cover mounting screws. Repeat this process on the other side of the rack. Push the upper dishrack onto its tracks. Close the track stops on the rails and the repair is done. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Are there video installation instructions for replacing the adjuster part w10546503
For model number KUDE60SXSS3
PartSelect logo
Hello Mark, Thank you for your inquiry. At this time, we do not have a video for this exact part number but I have found instructions for you. Use a small flat head screwdriver to depress the retaining tabs securing the rack adjustors to the tracks. Fully remove the upper rack. Using the flat blade screwdriver, release the tabs to detach the adjuster housing cover and remove the housing. Next detach the front and rear adjuster support straps from the tines and remove them from the rack adjuster. Note the orientation of the rack adjuster, then pry off the stop clip to detach the old adjuster. Install the new adjuster by aligning it on the rack and snap the stop clip into place to secure. Next replace the front and rear support straps. Position the adjuster housing by aligning the locking lever in the adjuster slot then snap the cover on to secure. Then put the upper rack back into place. Hope this helps!

The part that i'm finding on line for a upper rack adjustment mechanism does not look the same as the one on my dish washer and we could not locate the model number on the dishwasher where would we locate that on the unit
For model number KDFE104DSS
PartSelect logo
Hello Violet, Thank you for your inquiry. You would locate your model number on the left edge of the dishwasher's door, on the upper left hand corner of the unit's frame, on the top of the door jamb-to the left, right, or in the center, on the door itself, to the left, right or in the center, or on the underside of the control panel. Hope this helps!

I have a Kenmore dishwasher. The little plastic piece that sits inside of the roller has broken off and the rack is now sagging on one side. It looks like this adjuster piece is what i need to replace it but, it does not have Kenmore in the list compatible brands. Will this piece work for my dishwasher? Thank you so much and i look forward to your time!In him, havilah
For model number 665.13543N412

Hello Havilah, thank you for your question. The upper rack roller is part of the T shaped adjuster that attaches to the rack itself. The new rack adjuster kit provided by the manufacturer provides all the replacement parts for the right and left sides of that rack. The part number PartSelect Number PS10065979 will be the adjuster kit you need to order. I hope this helps!

I used the adjuster to lower the right side of top rack. Now the door will not close. I can't turn the dishwasher on.
For model number KDFE104DWH1
PartSelect logo
Hello Rochelle, Thank you for the question. I suggest putting the rack back to the normal setting in height to see if the door will close. If the door closes you may need to replace the adjuster. It might be causing the rack to come forward and not allow the door to close properly. Hope this helps!
