Do not know about a recal. But you can buy the racks at your local Sears service senter or on line at www.Sears.com

How to Stop the dishwasher from breaking my glasses


This shelving costs $16 plus $20 for powder coating.
Very easy to assemble taking about 2 hours.
It will stabilize your dishwasher trays so glasses wont fall over. Therefore wont break.
Buy 2 large Baking racks with 1 cm holes from Myers for $8 each.
Use your Angle Grinder to cut to size, making sure the cross wires running from left to right are on top of the long runs. This is because your glasses would slip all the way to the front, if you mounted the racks up the wrong way.
Basically I cut off only one side of the rack, using the cutoff piece for the middle hole.
Next flatten those legs that wont let the rack sit flat down, by using your vice and hammer.

See the diagram below how wide the framing supports wires are apart, that is why nothing stands up on them.
You may have to discard other supplied movable racking.
But the inserted racks, with a hole cut in the middle rack to allow a raised support wire some space, are very stable.

Now after cutting hammering and bending the racks loose some coating and will rust with little rust marks appearing on the edges of all your crockery and cups.
Therefore you will need to powder coat them any colour for years of protection.
Just find a powder coater in the yellow pages and give him the cutout racks.
To save money I told him to coat my Black racks to any colour in his machine, which turned out white.
Note the glass which now stands up stable and straight.

Rust spots on bottom rack


You may need to replace the rack. Dishwasher soap is aggressive and once an area is exposed, it will rust fast. Make sure you don't place sharp objects in direct contact with a rack. The action inside the washer can cause them to move and rub through the metal rack coating.

My viking dishwasher does not rinse the soap scum off the dishes


Maybe . . . remove the lower rack and invert it. Look for cracked or missing plastic coating, exposed, rusted & possibly "swollen" inner steel rod/wire. If found, remove the upper rack and look for more of the same. What you think is "soap scum" is probably rust and other iron compounds leached by the dish soap out of the rusted steel onto the dishes and the dishwasher interior. The following worked for me . . .

To clean the interior (with both racks removed), set to "No Heat" dry, then "Pot & Pan" wash and allow to fill. Open door, dump in a bottle of "Lime A-Way", close & latch door and allow to complete cycle. This should remove most rust and iron-sulphate deposits from interior. If not, scrub them with Lime A-Way and a ScotchBrite pad, then cycle again.

Racks must be replaced (Viking are very expensive, Asko, Bosch, or other lower racks may fit: check your neighbors' racks for fit), upper rack must be Viking unless you can exact-match the Asko or Bosch equivalent.

Possible fix: remove the loose plastic coating and flaking rust with a knife, ruff plastic coating with ScotchBrite, clean with rubbing alcohol, then treat metal/rust with "rust converter" (hardware or home imp store), wash with soapy water, rinse, then clean with rubbing alcohol, dry fully, coat with "high temp" (orange or yellow) silicone sealant (auto part store), covering exposed metal and a half inch or so over the plastic coating. Let set for a day or two.

A trip through the dishwasher for all your stained stainless, glasses and non-metallic coated or non-metallic decorated dishes with Lime A-Way as above (on new or "rebuilt" racks) should get the metallic scum and rust off them.

Maytag portable dishwasher, dish racks are very rusted in 2 years


This is Maytags solution


Do the dishwasher racks have chips or scratches showing exposed metal underneath?
If minor rack repairs are needed, a dishwasher rack repair kit just might work. To review this product or purchase the kit, click here.
Should you purchase the kit online, enter Promo Code F9A75Q4 in the Review Order screen when you check out to receive a 10% discount on your order.
For more severe rack damage, a replacement rack may need to be purchased; call the Maytag Customer eXperience Center toll-free at 1-866-616-2601, Monday-Friday, 8AM-6PM, Eastern Time.

I would call the toll free number and see if a free replacement is available. If not at least try to get a big discount on replacing them.

Good luck and thanks for using Fix Ya, please take the time to rate this solution (from Fix Ya, not Maytag, I didn't like their solution).

Rusty dish rack


Clearly a design or manufacturing flaw. I have the same model and the rack is disintegrating after 6 years. I believe it is a manufacturing flaw. Our previous dishwasher rack lasted over 20 years in the same conditions. Same construction, vinyl covered steel. New upper and lower racks cost over 200.00 and there is no guarantee that this won't happen every six years. I recommend a new non-Maytag dishwasher as soon as you can. Meanwhile, limp along with the defective racks.
