Sorry to hear that your having issue with your dishwasher.

Once they come off you normally have to replace it because the little locking grooves have been warped (bent the wrong way)

But the part is NO longer available from the manufacture.

So your best bet is to fill the groove with RTV silicone and then install it ,let the unit set for 24 hours for the silicone to set then you should be fine.

This will of course glue the shield onto the bottom of the door liner.

If you have any questions just reply back to me
