Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

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


Answers :

We have just solved the problem with our wheels falling off! For .75 cents a wheel we purchased new wheel "clips". The connect straight into the wheel instead of "rotating" on. Big differnence and so easy to change out! 5 minutes and the problem is gone. The item number is WD12X10277 and it is a GE product. Hope this helps!

Maytag Dishwasher Model #MDB7600AWB One of four plastic WHEELs mounted by screws to a 10 inch metal bar located on either side of the top rack has broken where the wheel meets the screw shaft. (These wheels run along the guide tracks for the upper rack mounted on the inside of dishwasher.) Please provide me with a part number so I can order a replacement part. Thank you.

Maytag Dishwasher circa 2002 - Defective Plastic rollers The plastic rollers that slide the arms of the dish rack keep breaking. I have had this dishwasher for 6yrs now and go through 1 a year. This defect is really annoying for two reasons one; the cost - $50 each - X's 6 years = $300. Secondly, the inconvenience of having a delapitated dish rack that crashes sideways - with the weight on only one side. Presently, I'm about to order my 6th one. I'd like to know if you are aware of this d

The upper rack side rail is loose where it attaches to the side wall of the dishwasher. It allows the upper rack to wobble. When the dishwasher is turned on, the force of the water pushes the rack forward so it detaches from the water supply and the arm does not rotate. The arm and connection are all clear and the arm is able to rotate, so those problems are not a factor. The wheels are in good condition. The left rail is a little loose; the right one is very loose. There must be a way t

Whirlpool DU920PWKB0 Dishwasher We may be in need of a lower dishrack assembly. I noted that this part does not come with the pressure cone. How can one remove the pressure cone from the old rack to insert in the new? I don't want to break it. (Even if I ordered a new rack and a new cone, I'd still have to insert it -- a round part in a square hole.)

The bottom rack of the dishwasher is always coming off the "track" or what passes for one. The wheels seem too small or the rack isn't wide enough Makes it very diificult to push in or pull out.

One I can see to recieve the top rack nozzle when the rack is slide into place, but should the other one be covered to prevent all the water from dumping out before getting to the upper nozzles?

Are the top rack adjusters on the Whirlpool GU2400XTP dishwasher an owner-serviceable item? Do most Whirlpool parts stores sell the top rack adjusters for the Adjustable 2-position top rack? My dishwasher is five years old and one of the adjusters has broken. The two-position rack seems like a good idea but the plastic part doesn't look like it was built for high-temperature durability.

Racks corroding. The dishwasher works great. Just had recall repair done. Problem is the racks are slowly corroding away and new ones cost as much as a new dishwasher.

I want to remove the white plastic wheel that propels water into the circulating arms. It is held with one screw which I cannot seem to be able to loosen. This white plastic wheel has 2 small holes in the surface which are perhaps there for some special tool to hold the wheel stationary in order to loosen the screw holding this wheel in place. Underneath this gray plastic housing is the heating element. I want to remove it in order to clean accumulated deposits of gunk.

TOP ARM HANGING DOWN-Dishwasher's working fine, problem is that the wash arm/spray thing at top is lower than it used to be, we only noticed because when pulling out the top rack the top arm/spray thing at top gets hit by the rack. Work around has been lifting rack up at angle to get past this, but everyone at some point forgets to do this and we are worried eventually something will break. HELP???

Hello, bought an Hanseatic DW12/BFE in Germany approx. 5 years ago and moved with it to Sweden. Now one of the springs (assisting the front lock opening/closing) did break. I've tried to get a new one via a specialised shop dealing with home machines but withour success. They can only support with spare parts out of their ordinary supply chain. Can you help me? Do you have partners in Sweden or can you send me one or two springs? Thanks in advance for your reply, Petra

My kitchenaid dishwasher has a bottom rack allignment problem. Especially when it is fully loaded the right rear pair of wheels often slips down off the bottom track and makes rolling the loaded rack fully in very difficult. I've already had a serviceman come out and he sent me a new bottom rack and set of four rollers and that improves the situation but does not eliminate it. Any similar complaints? Any easy fix before I call the service guy again?

We have a built in GE dishwasher. It has worked fine for about 4 years but now the glasses in the top rack will not come clean. I have cleaned all the holes where the water comes out but I think the sprayer that is beneath the top rack (the one that is attached to the bottom of the top rack) is not rotating. We had someone out to take a look at it and they said it was fine. It isn't fine as it is not cleaning the dishes. Is there a reason that the bottom sprayer is not turning?
