Replacing Rollers on GE 725

I ordered replacement rollers for broken rollers on my GE 725 dishwasher upper dish rack.

Now that I have the rollers I can't see how to get the old ones out or the new ones in. I am worried that if I forced the plastic piece out at the front of the steel rail I may bend the rail.

It is a GSD725X - but I didn't see it on the product list.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
Brian

Hi bklink_2000,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: Now that you have the rollers you can't see how to get the old ones out or the new ones in. You are worried that if you forced the plastic piece out at the front of the steel rail you may bend the rail.

You're on the right track! The plastic end caps should pop off, that,s what they're for.

Feel free contact me again!

2 upper rack rollers cracked in Maytag #MDB7600AWS - cant find simple replacement rollers for inside track - 1 1/4" - of upper rack.


JP Weld works great on repairing these junky Maytag parts. Note that they don't have a replacement for these upper wheels and a guy is selling expensive stainless steel replacements. The round connector broke off of ours that holds the wheel to the rack. My wife found a plastic button that fit within the space and we glued it with JP Weld epoxy (water and temperature resistant). 10 washes later, still working great! I expect it will "heal" any other plastic parts. NEVER will I buy a Maytag again!

I need the upper and lower rack rollers replaced but do not know the part numbers. I am looking for a parts diagram on the internet but have been unable to find one. GE Nautilus, Model GSD2200G00CC


http://www.myapstore.com/Omega/Dispatcher?REQUEST=HOMEPAGE

Start at the link above, enter your model number in the box near lower part of screen, you will then be asked to verify by clicking it on the next page.

When you have done this, the next page should default to a choice of "body parts", see if your rack roller assemblies don't appear in the list you will find there.

I did this and seemed to work well at finding the upper and lower rack assemblies. ( I am pretty sure you have to buy assembly and not just rollers.

Hope this help.

How do you remove the caps from the upper rack glides? I'm replacing the rollers that attach to the upper rack because one is broke.


Caps on the front ends of the glides can be pulled out. Sometimes they are hinged at the top and have a tab at the bottom to pull out. With the caps out or open you can roll the upper rack out of the glides.

Top rack rail contently comming off the rollers. The rollers are wobbly, tried to tighten but will not go any tighter. are there better rollers available? PLD2850RDC2


Typically the roller wheels and the post tabs that hold them onto the sliding rack/guides will wear over time and depending on how heavily your family loads the racks, the sooner you'll need to replace them.

You can order new ones and do the job yourself which is the best solution for the situation you're describing. The only other thing to check is for the rack section that is attached to the inside dishwasher walls to make sure those screws are snug (don't overtighten and strip them out!) other than that, you still will need to replace the rollers on the extendable portion of the rack supports, etc. Hope that helps.

GE Adora Dishwasher Upper Rack Binding Issue


I have a GE Profile model PDW7800.... and just replaced the rollers on one side since one of them had broken. There is a 'magical' way to reinstall the rack so the side guides ride inside the roller guides without touching. I suspect that the rack has not been reinstalled in the precise manner - which I am still trying to figure out. The new roller assembly which attach to the rack fit differently than the original ones. I found that you do have to remove the rollers screwed into the wall to get the glides out and that could also cause rough gliding. Part of the 'binding' is designed, I believe, to keep the racks from coming out too easily.

hi Problems with the dish racks usually occur because the racks have been jammed back into the tub housing after they're fully loaded. Careless handling can exert enough force to crack or break the roller wheels or throw the racks off the tracks. The solution is easy: Stop jamming the racks. 
The repair is easy, too. Remove the racks by pulling out the tiny metal pins that hold them in the tracks. Or simply lift up on the racks and pull them out of the tracks. Then reinstall the racks on the tracks so that they roll smoothly. If the rollers are cracked or broken, replace them with new ones of the same type. The rollers may be friction-fit to their hubs. Pull them off for replacement. Or, if they are held by tiny spring clips, pull the clips out with pliers, or pry them out with the tip of a screwdriver. If you can't pull the rollers off for replacement, remove and replace the entire rack.
