Remove the upper dishrack
Press the release tab and pull the rack stop off the inside track of the rail. If your dishwasher has different rack stops, follow the instructions in your owner’s manual.
Pull the dishrack out and set it upside down.
Replace the broken roller
Release the locking tab and pull off the broken roller assembly.
Push the new roller assembly on the dishrack until it locks.
Some assemblies use a retaining latch to attach the roller assembly to the dishrack.
Push in the locking tab to release the retaining latch, then push down and remove the broken roller.
Position the new roller assembly and push the retaining latch up to attach the new roller.
Reinstall the upper dishrack
Once the new roller is on, slide the wheels into the track rails and push the upper dishrack into the dishwasher. Reinstall the rack stops.
