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.

FAST and EASY SOLUTION that WORKS!
DO NOT TAKE THE DISHWASHER APART!!!!!
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
http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1v/R-100082918/h_d2/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053
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 holder broken and won't auto-stop after shred

I see you posted two questions on the same issue, and the other one was disjointed with no indication what the caster wheels were on.

Check the switch, they normally have On, Off and Auto.

Remove the head and clean all paper debris from underneath. You have a small piece of paper over the sensor and it is sensing that there is still paper for be shredded. Some have a small lever and if so, yours is stuck. Spray with WD40, and all the blades as well.

https://www.google.com/search?q=Ativa+MDM+8000

The caster wheels could all be removed and have it sitting on its base. The wheels are for use if you keep it in an office cupboard. You just replace the whole caster wheel or the whole set for $14..

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.
