I took it abart but am afriad I did not put it back together right.

My DD603 has been working perfectly well until recently when the top draw stopped working as though the power had been removed.

I have a Maytag model DWU9502AAM dishwasher, took out the top rack (easy) to wash furnance filters, and cannot get the rack back in rightly! Where are the rollers on each side supposed to be placed to hold the rack? Do the snap supports face up or down on the rack? I broke two of the roller snaps and replaced them, still no luck.
