Dishwasher around here are offered under various brands, but they are all pretty much the same unit.
The wire basket that holds the dishes has wheels that clip on to the basket. These wear out sooner than most of the rest of the unit.
These clips replace the original wheel bearing clips with a tighter tolerance.
PLA prints have held up well after several weeks, with no sign of failure.
Measure the wire on the basket where the wheel clip on.
Adjust the SCAD file.
Print with support. The part will need filing.
Clip on wheel, then clip to basket. Notice the wheels no longer fall from the track.
