If you are handy, contact an appliance parts store that sells retail. You should find them in the yellow pages. Brand and model number will be needed usually on the inside edge of the door.

If you are unsure, Look in Repair and Service link at Fixya.com for a repair service in your area.

Good Luck,

DFUD142 Dishwasher. Plastic clips holding Cutlery/Utensil Cradle sliding tray have broken. Looking for new clips or an alternative solution. Thanks


Hello, welcome to fixya

Here's what works for me, take the lower basket out and set it aside to give yourself a more work friendly environment. Now move the rack stops to the left if you haven't already and then the rack itself...example

and

cb82cce.jpg

Now you'll need to remove the bumpers at the back of the rack rail, example...

push down on the bumper as shown

a6e3c04.jpg

and pull it down and out at the same time...it takes some force, you can use a small screwdriver.

Now you'll need to slide the rail all the way out as shown, but careful not to let the ball bearings fall into the sump area in the process.

I usually hold the broken piece in place while removing the rail...

...( they come in a kit at "repairclinic.com" under number 1394379 like shown here individual holders # 8058638-77 from the link I pasted below at allvikingparts )

http://www.allvikingparts.com/Guide_Rail_Ball_Holder_p/pd110003.htm

The trick now is to install the balls into the holders first

and the holders into the stationary part of the rail on the inside wall...

9c58331.jpg

The inside wall rail will keep the holders in place as you slide the inside rail into place...this will usually require holding the holder with one hand while pushing the sliding rail back into place...

Once this is done, re-install the back rail bumpers followed by the rack and then finally the front rack stoppers and that should do it.

Hope that explain it for you or gives you an idea of how it needs to be done. Please take a moment to rate the assistance I provided here today favorable and a brief testimony is also appreciated when providing free solutions.

Thanks for visiting "fixya" today for your repair help and good luck. Let me know if you require further assistance.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

P.S.

I should also mention you as I alluded to, be sure none of the old 8 ball bearings didn't fall down into either the drain pump or circulation/wash pump. This is something I've seen far too often on Asko dishwashers with the end result being a broken impeller in either pump...or both, yikes ! I use a telescopic magnet to fish around as it will be the only object made of metal...unless something else has fallen in the sump well area, it's good to check.

Hello there, I have a Bosch Logixx dishwasher which I purchased just over 2 years ago. My upper dishwasher tray is not fitting properly into the hose pipe holes on the inside of the back wall of the...


Hello Deepak,

You can definitely fix this yourself, but I'm not entirely sure from your description which part is "dropping off". It may be a simple fix where something needs to be clipped back into place or you may need to replace something. Please can you take a look at the images below and identify which part you are having trouble with.

Below is the back of the upper spray arm which clips on to the upper rack. It has a grey plastic cover behind which is a large white plastic washer / gasket. The washer simply slots in to the back of the spray arm and the grey cover clips in over the top.

Your description suggests the grey plastic cover and/or the white washer are dropping off. If the grey plastic cover is missing, it may have fallen into the bottom of the washer under the lower rack, in which case you should be able to find it and clip it back on. If it's missing or wont clip back on, you will need to replace the upper spray arm as the cover and washer are not available separately.

This is the water delivery tube which clips to the back wall of the washing compartment. There is a metal clip which secures the tube to the wall. The open hole and one of the spigots slot in to the two holes in the back of the upper spray arm above. The spigot used depends on which height setting the upper rack is on.

belectric_192.jpg

Basically, everything simply clips together. If nothing is broken, you should be able to fix this at no cost by simply clipping the offending part back into place.

Hope this helps. If you need further assistance or help locating replacement parts, please let me know what needs to be replaced. Nearly all Bosch parts are available and in stock direct from Bosch.

Regards,
BElectric

The upper spray arm is not spinning


Make sure that when you slide the upper tray back into the machine that it engages in the water supply that comes up the back. The tube that goes to the spinner hangs in a little plastic clip and these often break.

How do you replace the window regulator and motor on the driver front side on 98 dodge grand caravan


Remove the two Phillips head screws that hold in the power master switch in the door. Gently pry it upward. Push the red clips aside on the plugs and squeeze the release on the plug and pull them off. Remove the screws from inside the door panel. Lift the panel up and away. Peel back the plastic to reveal the inner door. Duct tape the window over the upper frame a few times to keep in up. Peer inside the door for two metal clips that hold the regulator to the window and slide them out. Unbolt the front and rear vertical tracks that slide the window up and down. Take out the three torx head bolts that come through the door and hold the motor in place. Check tor plastic anchors (ribbed pointy things) that hold the cables (from making noise) going from the front and rear vertical tracks. Twist and wiggle the tracks and motor out the hole at the bottom rear of the door. It's a little stubborn to finagle out, but it'll come. Patience will overcome.

Frigidaire dishwasher - upper spray arm trouble?


I do not have a problem w/the upper arm not spinning. Rather, the upper arm keeps falling off of my frigidair dishwasher. The owner's manual suggests the upper arm is a single unit. However, the upper arm component is comprised of 3 parts. The parts are an arm that distributes the water, the base that screws to the top of the dishwasher, and a small plastic type washer that rides in the base and literally holds the arm to the base. The plastic washer has two small clips that tend to wear or contrast with age; thus letting the arm fall off on a very frequent basis.

Potentially, the small plastic washer piece may have broken in the base assembly and is not allowing the arm to turn. As water flows into the arm from a hole in the base; suggesting the plastic washer may be jammed with a foreign item seems less likely. The base unit screws to the top of the dishwasher and can be removed by hand (the base is a little tight). There are no mechanical pieces to my third (upper) arm; movement of the arm is accomplished with water flow.

You may wish to remove the arm assembly and check for a broken washer or a foreign item in the assembly. As a side note, I found that I can unscrew the base and remove the assembly without removing the top dish tray. The fit is a little tight but the tedium of pulling and reinstalling the top tray can be eliminated by unscrewing the assembly w/the tray slid forward for assembly access.

Hope all you have is a foreign item that is locking the washer.

Spray arms clogged


Top: Remove the upper tray by releasing the clips on the ends of the runners. (Squeeze the top of the clip and pull upwards). Remove the spray arm by holding the round plastic clip that holds the arm and turning the arm. It will unscrew.

Bottom: Grab spray arm in centre and pull sharply upwards to unclip.

Wash in warm water and solvent-free detergent.

Bottom Draw Wont Close


Check the sides of the drawer on the dishwasher and make sure that the sliders that the drawer rides on are not locked in place you will notice on the front of the slider near the door panel there are plastic clip like press in tabs that hold the drawer securely in the tracks try to put your hand up under the door and move the track if the track moves in the slider you will need to hold the door secuely with one hand while sliding the track to the most open position on the slider track. if the sliders are not locked in you will be able to pull the slider forward and the slider should clip into place.Repeat this for both sides and the door should operate like new once again.
