Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Upper and lower racks of Beaumark dishwasher purchased in mid-1990s (model and serial number available) need replacing. Coating on metal racks has worn away and resulting rust is getting on dishes. Replacement racks (new) cost more than the dishwasher itself (figure that!). Can anybody help out with a suggestion?

Our Whirlpool dishwasher, DU1145XTPBA, has almost quit cleaning the dishes. It started with dishes on the top rack. My husband was told by rep to replace the top unit. That did not help at all. Now the bottom dishes are almost as dirty and gritty as the top rack. This dishwasher is too new to have to be replaced and we've already spent $50 on the top rack. Is there anything else to check at this point?

I am not happy with the racks in my new Bosch dishwasher! The bottom rack is not right! The silverware basket is in the back right corner and the silverware catches on the seal on door and it is hard to get to. The tongs are two close together and point the wrong way? The upper rack's tongs are also to close together also. I don't seem to be able to get larger dishes in with these tongs in the way. Having never used the mdl 9000359119 Rev B I had no idea.

Have a Kenmore Elite Dishwasher (66513123K701). Was not cleaning dishes very well so we ran diagnostics on it and found a problem with the diverter motor (W10155344) so we replaced it. Now, the dishwasher is leaking from the diverter. There was a o-ring from the original diverter that we had to keep since the new motor did not come with it. Wondering if we should get a new o-ring/seal, but I cannot find mention of such a part anywhere. Is there a certain way to seat the o-ring? Is it ok to

Our Maytag model MDB4010AWW (8 1/2 years old) is leaving food stuck on the dishes and glasses on the top rack consistently. We've run several bottles of Dishwasher Magic through in the past few weeks which has only helped the problem a little. We posted this question to a similar forum a few weeks ago, and it was suggested that the wash pump might need replacement. What's the average life expectancy of a lowend dishwasher like ours? would it be more cost effective to replace it rather than to sp


It would cost you at least the 200.00 to have it replaced since the pump cost 150.00 and you would have labor added. It should last longer than it did if that's what's wrong with it. I would first observe to see if the upper spray arm is spinning and ... Dishwashers

Dishes in the upper rack no longer get cleaned. I've been using this dishwasher since 2004 (purchased new), and have not changed the way I loaded the dishes or the detergent. I called the Kitchen Aid help line, and the rep simply read the owner's manual to me (e.g., stand a glass of vinegar in the dishwasher and run a cycle), which did not address the problem. Any idea what I need to do? Thank you!

The flimsy plastic guide wheels on the rack for my (ca. 2000) GE monogram dishwasher have been breaking. Six so far. GE wants $25 - $30 per wheel to replace and $235 for a whole new rack!! I will not reward this rapacious corporate behavior. Is there an appliance graveyard (like an auto wreck yard) where one can get a used rack? Are there wheel manufacturers/suppliers that will sell reasonably wheels of similar dimensions to the breaking wheels? Preferably in nylon or stainless steel, not the cr

Dishwasher I am getting a run around with getting my LG dishwasher fixed properly. We had a tech more than once come in and look at our dishwasher. It has not been fixed and never dried the dishes properly. It is now leaking and going to a "del" level when we attempt to wash the dishes. It is also leaking on our fairly new tiled floor and under our new kitchen cabinet. Your tech stated the dishwasher was not installed properly. The installation dept , Francine stated it is not their problem
