Question about Maytag Dishwashers

The top rack does not move smoothly.

It pulls out about one-third the way, is hard to pull that far. This just happened today, had worked fine before.

SOURCE: GE dsd 6700 top rack glider wheels not turning,

remove the tray and look at the wheels to be sure they are completely attached to the tray itself. If they are spray them with PAM or another cooking spray product to lubricate them.

SOURCE: Upper rack travel sticks and jams.....

you have a bad bearing retainer. you will need to call an asko parts dealer and order 8 upper rack ball bearings, and two ball bearing guides (they are grey plastic and break over time, causing the rack to jam. To replace tham, you must take the upper rack out by turning the plastic retainers on the front of both rails 90 degrees towards the outside of the machine. The slide the whole basket out. Now look at the back of the rails inside the dishwasher. there shoul be 2 more grey plastic retainers with bumpers on them in the rear. These must be pried out wiht a screwdriver (be careful, have cut myself several times on this job till i figured out the best way to do it. cover the bottom hole in the dishwasher with a rag, as you are likely to drop the old bearings when you slide the rails out. Slide out both the rails. Put your new (or old if youve got all 8) ball bearings into the ball bearing holders, then put the holders into the rail thats attached to the dishwasher. slide the rails back in, andthen put all your retainers back in and your rack. you may have to slide the rack in and out a few times before it will center the bearings and work smoothly. Should cost you about $12 in parts. Good Luck!

SOURCE: top rack will not pull out all the way

Replace the upper basket wheels - these are available as spares. If the metal runners look angled - it may be the wheels on the side of the dishwasher that need replacing. These are also available as a spare part.
Ebay is actually a good place to shop for spares of this type.

Why is my hand wheel difficult to turn on my Singer Tradition machine? It was working fine and then just stopped working smoothly. Any suggestions?


This happen to me I left the bobbin in lock position. when I fill up my bobbin on the top I push toward the right to lock in place. and when your finished.you forgot to push it back to un lock it. And that will cause also the wheel not to move..

I recently rec'd Singer Curvy 8770 as gift. Trying to use for first time and thread on underside of stitches is loose. Have tension on top dial as far as 9. I hve been sewing for forty+ yrs.


Try this, totally rethread with the presser foot up, then pull the top thread, it should move smoothly, then lower the presser foot, now pull the thread, it should barely move. This seats the thread in the tension discs.

Bobbin tension is far to loose I tried adjusting the screw but no luck


Are you sure that it is not in your top threading instead of your bobbin? Try this test, totally rethread your machine with a fresh needle inserted (flat side facing away from you). Make sure that your presser foot is up (when threading and the first part of this test) , now pull on the top thread, it should move smoothly, then put the presser foot down, now pull the thread, it should barely move. This usually seats the thread in the discs.
You will find that bunching up of thread underneath is usually the opposite of what you thing, ie. top threading. Top thread issues are the bobbin causing the problem. Good luck

Sewing on top is fine but bottom bobbin keeps sewing messy on the underside domesco sewing machine how do i fix?


It is in your top threading, it is not threaded right. Make sure that there is no tangles in your thread, no bent needle. Check your threading by, presser foot up, pull thread, it should move smoothly, put presser foot down and pull thread again, now it should hardly move. This will seat the thread in the tension discs.

I have a MieleG2142. One of the racks is not sliding smoothly which I believe I have narrowed down to one of the wheels in the rail guides not turning. How are the rail guides removed?


Hi dear.Try this.Pull the top basket towards you.Check on the side (if you can) back of the basket two of the wheels on top row should be on rail guide & third one just under the rail guide to support the basket.It should be even on both side of basket to run smoothly.If not pull the basket all the way towards you & lift up the basket you are holding.Basket will be free to come out of rail guide.(Please check,are the rail guides running in & out freely without basket?If not there are two plastic wheel inside of the each rail guide one or two of it must be damaged.That needs to be replaced.Please also check side wheels on the basket,they sould be freely turning.If not needs to be replaced.) If that did not work out,try to put back the basket even way to rail guide the way took it off.Contact Miele for assitants.Thanks.Goodluck.

MOUSE SCROLL HELP


Check that you are not using this on a shiny or smooth surface. i am assuming this is a laser mouse and not a ball type. These types prefer surfaces that are different, like top of a desk where this wood grain. This is how the mouse knows how far it has moved by comparing one part of the surface to another.

Loose, loopy, understitching.


Generally caused by lack of tension on the upper thread. Thread machine normally and pull the needle thread sideways from the needle with the presser foot up. It should pull smoothly. Lower the presser foot and it should become hard to pull and the needle will bend. If this doesn't happen, the upper thread is not in the tension assembly and you should rethread properly. Also, make sure thread is in the take up lever that moves up and down on the front of the machine while sewing.

hi Problems with the dish racks usually occur because the racks have been jammed back into the tub housing after they're fully loaded. Careless handling can exert enough force to crack or break the roller wheels or throw the racks off the tracks. The solution is easy: Stop jamming the racks. 
The repair is easy, too. Remove the racks by pulling out the tiny metal pins that hold them in the tracks. Or simply lift up on the racks and pull them out of the tracks. Then reinstall the racks on the tracks so that they roll smoothly. If the rollers are cracked or broken, replace them with new ones of the same type. The rollers may be friction-fit to their hubs. Pull them off for replacement. Or, if they are held by tiny spring clips, pull the clips out with pliers, or pry them out with the tip of a screwdriver. If you can't pull the rollers off for replacement, remove and replace the entire rack.

Whirlpool dishwasher


The very first thing to check is the float inside the tub. Most of them look like a mushroom in one of the front corners. Raise it up and drop it back down. It should move easily and you should hear a slight click as it sets back down. It is common for the float to get knocked out of place by something sticking through the rack when you pull the rack out.
Post back and let me know if this helps or not and we will check other things if needed.
