The end caps on the upper rack of my GE dishwasher do not pull off, they "rotate" off by turning the top of the cap toward the center of the dishwasher. In order to make this rotation, you need to slip a small screwdriver in the track to the inside of the nipple at the top of the back of the end cap and force the nipple toward the middle of the dishwasher.

Dear friend,
ngfam at you service! happy to assist!

Use a small channel lock wrench and wiggle it gently while pulling it out not to crush anything!

If you can't free it , better to call service than cost more money breaking it!



Perhaps you should try service!
We sell appliances for 65 years and I recommend this nation wide Factory repair service!

Call A&E Factory Service /They service nation wide
And are available 24/7 for making appointments!

If the appliance is 10 years old or more,it may make sense not to invest any money to fix it!

Happy to assist you,
PLEASE GIVE ME A GOOD RATING BEFORE YOU SIGN OFF!

How do I get the upper rack arm back on the rollers?


The back endcap on the slider has snaplocks that has to be squeezed then pull off. This should allow you to pull the slider out and then guild it back over the rollers and into its proper place. Just had to do this, and it's hard to get to with the door down, but can be done.

Remove upper rack


When you pull the upper rack forward, the two metal glides on each side move forward. On the end of each glide is a white plastic end cap. If you look through the rack to the inside of each glide, you can see that the upper part of the end cap has a upper tab. I put my thumb on the end cap then press the upper tab forward with my index finger. Then press upward with your thumb and the end cap should slide totally upward and then out of the glide. Once both end caps are removed, the upper rack slides fully out of the washer.

Install upper rollers to Westinghouse dishwasher


Without much more to go on, I am assuming you are trying to install the "rack" onto the guide with the wheels. Usually there there are "end caps" on the guides that need to be removed first. Sometimes there is a small "tip" sticking out the top or side that has to be pushed in to release the end. Sometimes they are just a snug fit and will pull out.

I have always had good luck in going to a manufacturer's web site and or a site that sells replacement parts. There is usually a schematic of the area that you are working on and it will give you a better idea of where the part is that you need to remove.

Also, I have gone to the parts department of an appliance store and showed the parts guy what I had and they usually just tell me for free what I needed.

Good luck.

Water not getting to upper wash arm / glasses on top rack are dirty after the cycle - I do not know how to take out top slide basket to check water flow in tube at rear of machine-


remove the roller rack plastic end caps this will let you remove the upper rack,then you can replace the whole wash conduit from the bottom sump all the way to the top,also if theres a middle(center arm) this has a horn on it that is to seal when the rack and door are in and closed,but after while the water wears out the plastic o-ring and they leak and you lose water pressure to the top wash arm

How do you install the end cap #wd12x344


Use a pair of needle nose pliers. Gently bend the end of the rack opening out just a little. The cap will snap in place. Gently bend the rack tubing back in.

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.

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.
