The front guide wheel on the right hand d side of the up rack has broken off. From looking at it the molded plastic clips that attach the wheel to the rack are broken off. Can anyone help with a part number and possibly a good online source for ordering one?

Thanks

Brian

Thank you for the quick reply, it does appear to be part of the adjuster. The linked part has the portion with the wheels attached as metal. The part on mine is plastic. I took a picture and pointed to the part that is broken. The broken side was to close to the cabinet so I took a picture of the side that still has the wheel attached. The wheel is located behind the track that slides the upper rack out

The replacement part in this link differs from what is currently on my DW. Just wanted to verify before I order that I don't need to order something else? On mine the portion that holds the wheel is plastic and not metal.

Thanks

The kit I linked to was for your model# and the newest version, so it may differ from the original one.
