    Plexiglass on the inside of the washer fell off. No easy way to make it go back on, as the plastic feet/pillars that held it in place broke off.

Another thing that has worked acceptably well for me in this case is 'gluing' the plastic window back into place with a generous layer of GE Silicone II Kitchen and Bath sealant.

it works on both metal and plastic.

make sure the surfaces are all completely dry and apply a layer around the rectangle area where the plastic would normally meet the stainless steel (remove any plastic bits from the holes so that the sealant can squeeze in a little), place the plastic window back into position and put some weight over the entire surface of the window....not too much, but enough so that it'll squeeze the sealant out to the edges and seal entirely around.

let 'cure' 24 hours

mine has held together over a month now and doesn't appear to be coming apart (although i think i could've used a bit more sealant)

My older model had cheap plastic type rivets around the window. Of course they broke and water leaked out the window. I took the door apart and put in a new gasket the siliconed the heck out of it!
Put dishwasher on a counter or floor and put a nice thick phonebook under neath the opened door for support. Carefully replace window with gasket and a bead of silicone. Put enough weight on top to press it down and seal it. Leave for 24-48 hrs. I've replaced the window 3 times and this fix has lasted 2 years now. total cost about $10 and a little effort. make sure you use heat tolerant silicone.
Don't bother phoning Danby. They customer service dept. is a joke. They just don't care. Don't take my word for it though. just read the comments and reviews from other people and look on Craigslist and see how many people are desperate to sell the "Like New" Danby dishwashers. there's a reason why and make up your own mind. Seriously. Pay more money for a better product. Don't buy Danby

Drill out the plastic feet. Get some stainless steel machine screws and stop nuts. Attach the plexiglas panel with the ss. machine screws. Put some very high quality waterproof silicone caulking under and around the nuts and/or get some rubber washers and put them under the head of the s.s. machine screws. I had the same thing happen and that is how I solved the problem and it now no longer leaks at all. The other problem I have had is a chipping and then rusting dish rack. I solved that by putting rust converter on the metal exposed and then covering it with white epoxy putty but this is only a temporary fix as, in time, the entire rack starts to lose its plastic coating and you have to order another rack from Danby. I also had trouble with the rinse aid dispenser plastic wearing so thin that I had to remove it and then patch it back together with white epoxy putty. Last night, I got a very ominious sound from the motor. I have had this dishwasher since Aug. 2006 and it has been in use every night since then to now, March, 2009.

There are several durability issues with this dishwasher. I notice that now Wal*Mart appears to have stopped selling it since I put in a review like this one but much more detailed and they did not post my review ! I suspect they took my review to Danby in Findlay, Ohio and told them they had to solve the problems before Wal*Mart would continue to sell the product.

My brother-in-law sold me a Saab 900 convertible, the window rear window was broken out (glass) He said it broke when he put the top down... So just wondering if the window should be removed before putting...


Plexi works fine, but it doesn't have the embedded heating wires. To replace the glass normally requires that the hood section below it be replaced with it. This usually means removal of the hood material from the back of the car, and reattachment by staples to the mounting strip. Most suppliers have instructions on how to do this.

If you get a good used rear window, you might be able to simply 'unglue' the feature strip (that's the hood material below the glass) and reattach it to the 'new' window with 3M's special adhesive for this.

How do I remove the outer protective screen on my Mitsubishi WS-55315?


There are trim pieces around the edges that can be removed by sliding a knife underneath and lightly prying. They should remove fairly easily, don't force them as they may break. Use the knife on the cabinet side and pry toward the center of the screen.

The tear on the inner screen may be best left as is.

lexan would be better than plexi as it is tougher, but try to get anti-glare if possible. Anti-glare plexi would be better than regular lexan.

Panasonic HDTV 1080i Screen


Usualy Panasonic have 3 layers on the screen. From inside to outside is: fresnel, lenticular and protective. If only the one from outside is broken don't wory. It;s just protective and the film it's just a filter to improve the black level. You can use it like that but be carrefull because the lenticular it's not protected anymore and if you scrach it ... And do not try to clean it with anything else just dry rag.
