Question about Danby DDW1805W Designer Series Free-Standing Dishwasher

3 Answers

Broken casters (wheels)

Two of the four casters (wheels) that make the dishwasher mobil have broken off at the back of the dishwasher. It looks very complex to fix them. How do we do this. The wheels are plastic and they snapped off with out any force. I just moved the dishwasher in a straight motion and the dishwasher was not over loaded. I would prefer to replace all four casters with non-plastic ones to ensure better durability.

    Great little dishwasher but one wheel arrived broken.

    my movers broke the wheels. They cost $6.75CAD to replace, but the service will cost $100 for the house call. Can we safely repair it ourselves? We're pretty handy.

    DDW1805W - maybe 1802W, which is the portable one. Some of them may have been mislabelled, I was told.

This is definitely something that you can do yourself. Remove the back of the dishwasher and the front kickplate. This will give you access to the wheels. The wheels are held in place with a U shaped clip. Remove the clip and the wheel will come out. replace with the new wheel.

This happened with my Danby DDW1805 and I fixed it myself. I used two step stools at the side of the dishwasher to raise it off of the floor.

but Turn it UPSIDE DOWN
There should be a Drain Plug (if you got water there)

If a wheel breaks
1) use pliers to pull whats left of the plastic wheel off the metal fixed shaft
2) buy replacement wheel from Home Depot
Shepherd 2 in. Twin-Wheel Stem Casters 2 Pack
3) use pliers one again to pull the shaft of out the Home Depot plastic wheel (takes some works)
4) attached the new plastic wheel to the Dishwasher's metal wheel shaft (if the wheel is loose, add some tape to the metal shaft to make it tighter fix)
5) your done, simple as ABC123
6) clean your dishes and smile :-)

In case you haven't fixed this yet, I had the same problem and called Danby. They shipped out a new caster right away for no charge, and it's been fine ever since (2+ years now). So try giving them a call.

Caster broken

Some caster wheels are a press fit on an axle. That's why they frequently fall off.

How do the wheels install

10. You will find four casters (Figure B) and a dolly (Figure C) with your wet/dry vacuum. Assemble as follows:
11. If the casters are not already installed in dolly, insert casters into bottom of dolly by placing stem of caster into holes provided. Ap- ply pressure and twisting motion until casters snap into place (Figure 1).
12. With cord disconnected from receptacle and tank cover removed, turn tank upside down so that bottom is facing up.

Where can i get a set of wheels for my five gallon brute vaccuum?
emailthispage.gif printthispage.gif 1" Dual Wheel Caster (Set of 4 6774200 casters with retainers) Catalog No. 420-63-96

Four (4) casters. Set of 4 Replacement Caster Wheels with retainers. This item is the replacement for the plastic, non-hooded casters shown. These casters you will receive are an upgraded dual hooded caster that are a perfect replacement but offer superior performance.

Four (4) casters. Discontinued. Order this item and we will send you an upgraded, superior dual hooded set of casters. A = 1-12/16" B = 1/4" C = 1-9/16" D = 3-7/16"

You can also look at your local Lowe's who sometimes carry a generic wheel.

Changing the dual axle on an Invacare recliner to lower seat

You will need to remove the rear tires and front casters. If you look at the front caster fork there should be some extra holes where you can re-position the caster wheel. Likewise on the hole where the rear tires mounts there should be a hole above it where you can re-mount the tire. So just move the caster and wheel up to the next hole. If there are no holes to move up to then you cant lower the chair. The only other options would be to install a drop seat which you`ll have to purchase from a dealer or install smaller wheels and casters. So, for instance,say you have 8" casters and 24" wheels you would then install 6" casters and 22" wheels. Good Luck and let me know how it turns out.
