HOW TO – Making a Replacement Dishwasher Basket Wheel

Wmw01Nick writes in via the MAKE forums“Someone, quite probably our 3 year old Henry, was monkeying with the dishwasher basket (or whatever the heck that part is called) and one of the wheels came loose while the machine was working. I found it partially melted against the heating element of the Dishwasher when I unloaded the machine. I could have just chucked it and accepted that the basket might wobble, or I could have gone through the process of tracking down a replacement if one could be bought without buying the entire assembly. What I chose to do was make a replacement on my Taig lathe.” Link.

  1. Cool project. FWIW, Sears (yeah, that Sears) has a great online site for appliance parts like this–4 million of them, and for any brand of appliance (well, many brands, anyway) Good search engine, blow-up drawings so you can find your part, etc. Good prices, very fast shipping. www3.sears.com/
