Question about Dishwashers
I have twice replaced the complete racks and the problem continues to happen. I have tried calling the manufacturer but because there is no recall on product and I am no longer under warranty (although problem originally started when product was still under warranty-they replaced racks once but warranted those racks from date of replacement). Please let me know what I can do to prevent, stop or get a replacement as I am expecting a baby soon and worry about the rust getting on the baby bottles.
Getting a replacement set is not hard www.partselect.com has the part. If you don't want to spend the money you might try scraping the rust off of the prongs and then use a high temperature rated epoxy product to dab a new covering over the exposed steel. That might last for awhile. I'm guesssing. I think it needs to be a covering that can stand high temperature with a rating of at least 200 degrees or better and a chemical and humidity resistance rating. An electrical conductivity rating and thermal conductivity rating are not required. Its a patch but it might work Ok. I don't think the rust will get on your bottles but the prongs will weaken and break after awhile so if you can stop the rusting that will help you get more life out of the racks.

I've cleaned off the rusted areas and just put shrink tubing over the rusted prongs. Shrank down tubing and all is well and waiting for next fix.
