SOURCE: Top Rack always slides out fully

Well, you are right on about the level. It is tilted just slightly forward. The only parts to go bad are the plastic ball bearing guides, and usually when they go, you get a rack that wont come out and gets jammed. You 've got the problem, you just need to remove the screws hidden in the holes that are sometimes coverd with rubber plugs so that the dishwasher may move freely, andjust it till it no longer rolls out, then screw it back to the counter to hold it in place. There are no springs in that rack, so either its still tilted forward, or the tank is bowed or bent somehow, and that would mean new dishwasher. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: My dishwasher is not washing dishes on the top rack...

HI,

The top rack is not cleaning because of low water pressure from the wash motor to the upper spray arm.
Assuming the top spray arms are clear of debris, remove the lower spray arm to access the wash motor. Remove the 4 torx screws and the filter (accumulator assembly). Remove the torx screw and the inlet protector that covers the chopper assembly. Make sure the chopper is not broken (broken chopper will fill with debris and block water flow). While holding the chopper blade, reach inside the "D" shaped opening on top of the motor and spin the wheel/motor by hand in each direction to make sure either the chopper gear or the motor gear that drives the chopper is not broken. Replace the chopper if necessary . If the motor gear is broken, replace the sump and motor assembly . Remove any debris from the sump area in the process.
You don't have to shut the power off to the dishwasher because the door will be open, but if you feel more comfortable, do so.


thanks,

SOURCE: top rack washer arm isn't spinning and therefore

You can replace the whole top assembly. And before you run the cycles again, try putting a cup of Tang (dry) orange juice through the cycle without any dishes or get some Dishwasher Magic and you'll have a sparkling new dishwasher once again! hope this helps you!

SOURCE: dishes on top rack do not come out clean. Bottom

Have you tried cleaning the filter? We had a similar problem. The repair man came and removed all the spinners and the other stuff at the bottom above the motor to get to the filter. It was blocked with all kinds of old food bits and pieces, the odd bit of plastic film etc. He cleaned it, replaced it and we havn't had a problem since but he said it needs to be done about every two years. It can be done by someone who has reasonable DYI skills.

Top rack automatically slides out upon opening door


Hi,

This is actually a feature to allow the user easy access of sliding out the top rack. A look at the parts diagram disclosed that there is no mechanism activating this and therefore could be assumed to be gravity driven. It would stop a few inches due to the action or rather inaction of the rollers which would require user intervention (pull).

The only modification I could think of is to change how the inner rails are attached by inclining it to prevent the sliding out. The idea would be to lean in the upper rack to prevent gravity from sliding it out. Am not sure if inclining the entire dishwasher would affect the overall performance but it is also a possibility.

I have taken the liberty of including the diagram of the upper track should you wish to reference it.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How do you get the top odff dryer?


I would try searching on Google for the model number of the dryer. It all depends on the model of dryer but many times you can slip a putty knife in the seam where the top meets the front panel. There can be a catch in a couple of inches from each side that you can push back to release and the top should lift up from the front.

Top rack slides all the way out


Most likely your dishwasher is not level, but is tilting forward. Just extend the front leveling legs down further to raise the front end of the dishwasher. Otherwise, the rack glides may be damaged or bent.

How to install dryer rack in kenmore HE3 dryer


Open your Kenmore HE3 dryer door. Look for the ledge on the inside rear of the dryer wall.

Insert the rear wire leg of the dryer rack into the drum, resting the wire leg on top of the ledge. The front frame should rest over the dryer lint screen.

Push down on the top of the front frame of the dryer rack to secure it over the dryer lint screen frame. Close the dryer door once you load your items on the rack.

Freezer rack


Without further info, this is just a guess; but generally 'Frig/ Freezer racks may be drop in, or slide in, or pinned. Does the fron or the back (or both) Lift? is Ice holding it in place. Some lift in the front & then slide out. Some lift in the back then you slide it sideways in the front and release one side, tilt it and slip the oter pin out of its hole. The ones that are adjustable usually have slotted bars in the back. You lift the front several inches and then pull it out of the slots in the back. Most of the time the door(s) must be fully open to get them out.

ADJUST TENSION DOOR


Just below dish loading door there is a panel. Remove screws (if applicable) to find tension adjustment. Turn screw to the left to loosen or opposite lifting door open or closed untill happy with tension. Some washers have no adjustment, I suggest opening door fully and pulling out bottom load tray, loading and then top tray or rack, pushing top in first then bottom rack. Use a glass fry pan cover or fry pan for weight on door while filling soap. Good luck, best regards

My kitchenaid dishwasher won't stay shut. It pops


Check that there isn't something still in the very back of the rack (top or bottom) that's sticking out and keeping the rack from sliding all the way in. Similarly, if the problem goes away when you take the racks out, the problem is with the racks. Otherwise, it's the latch: either the eye (attached to the top of the machine) is bent/broken, or the hook (inside the top of the door) is broken. Good luck.

HOW TO PUT DRYER RACK INTO WHIRLPOOL CABRIO #WGD6600VWO


If it is a dryer with the lint screen on top place the two ends of the metal loop into the two holes closest to the plastic clips on the bottom of the rack. The clip the metal bar down into the clips and the multi-bent part of the metal ring are now atteched to the bottom of the plastic rack. Turn it over and place the metal ring in to the back of the dryer and the front lip of th plastic rack then hangs loosly over the lip of the bottom of the opening of the dryer. It will all tighten up when you close the door. Hope this helps
