Two tub wheels were broken on my dishwasher

My Repair & Advice
I ordered the new tub wheels on Thursday and they arrived Friday! My husband and I both watched the repair video provided by APP together several times. A few days later we started pulling out the dishwasher after disconnecting the water line. It did not want to come out easily. I lowered the dishwasher by turning the height adjusters on the bottom front of the dishwasher. It took some tugging, but it finally slid out. We rolled back the insulation and proceded as directed by the video. Easy! Now we slid the dishwasher back in a little so I could reconnect the water line. It was a copper line and one nut would not slide off the ferrel because of the tiniest crimp. We feared not getting a tight connection, so I went to Lowes and bought a flex-line for dishwashers. We put the line on (easy), turned the water back on to check for leaks, and pushed the dishwasher completely in place, readjusted the height adjusters, reattached the screws, and ran the dishwasher. Perfect! I do recommend fles-lines over copper. Copper is so hard to work with, and we did not have to worry about loosening the connection at one end while connecting the other end with a flex line. The water line was why our repair took so long.
