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.

Top roller screw hole stripped


1)make certain all is clean and very dry
2)apply gorilla glue into stripped plastic hole and insert screw.
3)rig something up to keep it from moving for 6 hours or so

careful gorilla has a nasty habbit of pretty much destroying clothes and staining skin so be carefull. don't get carried away when applying it and maybe set down a disposable rag to catch drips.
but it is very permanent. Its what I would do

good luck

Replace shower door


Hi

You did not mention any additional information about your problem except replacing shower door.However use basic hand tools to complete the job.

Try this following general steps :-
1. Remove the doors by lifting up on one door at a time and then pulling each out. The top of the door has rollers attached to it, and the rollers rest on the inside of the top rail of the frame. Set the doors aside.
2. With your drill, remove the two screws on each end of the top rail, located on the inside of the shower frame. Then lift off the top rail of the shower frame.
3. Use your box knife to cut the caulk on the side and bottom rails of the shower frame. Shower frames are caulked on the outside where they meet with the walls and floor of the shower.
4. Use your drill to remove the screws from the side rails. There will be two screws on each rail, securing it to the shower stall. Then, take the rails out. Remove the screws from the bottom rail and take it out.
5. Use your tape measure to measure the old side rails, top rail and bottom rail. With a pencil, mark the lengths on each new rail. Use your hacksaw to cut each rail. Hold a side rail in the exact location where the old rail was located. With your pencil, mark the screw holes on the shower wall. The new shower frame screw holes may not line up with the old shower frame screw holes. Use your drill and 3/16-inch drill bit to drill new holes if necessary. If the shower walls are ceramic, use the concrete drill bit. If the shower walls are fiberglass, use the multipurpose 3/16-inch drill bit.
6. Insert the 3/16-inch anchors into the holes that you drilled. Put the side rail into position and insert the screws into the holes. Use your drill and Phillips head drill bit to tighten the screws. Place the bottom rail into position and mark the holes. Drill new holes if necessary and install the anchors. Insert only one screw at the end where you installed the first side rail. Lift up the loose end of the bottom rail and slide the second side rail into place. Mark the holes. Remove the side rail and drill the new holes using the 3/16-inch drill bit. Insert the anchors and put the side rail back into place. Insert the screws and tighten with your drill using the Phillips head drill bit.
7. Set the top rail directly onto the side rails. In each end of the top rail, insert the two self-drilling screws until the top is secured to the sides. Insert the tube of clear caulk into the caulking gun. Cut the end off of the tube with your box knife. Caulk the side rails and the bottom rail to the shower walls on the outside of the shower. Re-hang the shower doors by lifting each door and placing the rollers on the inside of the top rail.
Also giving you some links from where you can find a detailed information regarding replacing shower doors.

I had the dealership address the rattling of the sliding passenger door on our 2002 Honda Odyssey. The removed the inner panel and adjusted the door striker which didn't stop the rattle. Any suggestions...


The sliding door has upper roller, lower roller, and center roller mechanisms. These rollers can become damaged and rattle in their respective tracks. The upper and lower rollers are easy to inspect, as they are at the front of the door (top and bottom) and in plain sight. But the center roller cannot be inspected until the center rail cover (an exterior narrow long panel) is removed.

To remove the center rail cover, first remove the tail light assembly on the affected side. (That procedure can be found by doing a fixya search for "2002 Honda Odyssey brake light replacement"). Now open the sliding door. Notice at the front of the rail cover there is a small bolt. Remove this bolt. Go to the back of the center rail cover and remove the two screws (only accessible when tail light assembly is removed). Then slide the center rail cover rearward to remove it. Now you will be able to inspect the center roller mechanism and door cables. Look carefully for damaged rollers which will let the door wobble in the center track and rattle.

How do these rollers get damaged? When kids climb onto the doors and "slide along". The door guide rollers and latches were not designed to carry much more weight than the door itself.

The top rack is very stiff pulling in and out, at a certain point.


Check that the rollers on the rack are correctly seated in the sliding rail, and that all the rollers are ok and intact and turning.Also check that you haven't bent or dislodged the sliding rail and that it is fixed to the dishwasher properly, ie nothing has come loose.
hope that helps

The slide on the upper basket keeps falling out. It's been fixed twice but doesn't hold. The second repair man who put the slide back in the rollers said he couldn't see anything wrong with it, but it...


One option is installing stainless steel washers on the rack supports that screw into the side of the tub. The rack falls down because there is too much "slop" with the rack...a couple small washers to space them tighter normally does the trick.

I can't put back the top dishwasher rack. The railing does not seem to hold it, even though there is no damage in the railing. The top rack could not be held by the rollers


There should be plastic stops at either end of the rail that prevent the rollers of the rack from coming out of either end.
