Good morning. I have a 3 year old Frigidaire dishwasher. The top rack roller broke, upon removign it, I realized the hole for hte roller screw is stripped, and thus the screw wont tighten and the roller won't stay in place to hold the top rack. It screws into plastic, great idea Frigidaire! any suggestions? thanks!!

1)make certain all is clean and very dry
2)apply gorilla glue into stripped plastic hole and insert screw.
3)rig something up to keep it from moving for 6 hours or so

careful gorilla has a nasty habbit of pretty much destroying clothes and staining skin so be carefull. don't get carried away when applying it and maybe set down a disposable rag to catch drips.
but it is very permanent. Its what I would do

good luck

SOURCE: water leak

Mine also started leaking. Element also too hot. Mine has a 20 year warrenty on the tub (which I was NOT aware of) Repairman came today and the whole tub unit and element will be fixed for free! Look in your whirlpool instruction book to see if yours is warrentied. BTW, my dishwasher is only three years old.

Sounds like you have 1 of 2 problems. Either your pump is clogged or you need a bigger drain loop.

Make sure the spout leading into the top spray arm is not obstructed at all. Maybe simplistic, but could be overlooked. Just thought I'd put it out there.

Dishwasher rack falls off


Could it be that KitchenAid wants you to replace the entire rack? Check with a local appliance parts supplier if you can because the roller must be a hot replacement item.

You can try to obtain the part from KitchenAid or an appliance parts supplier. However, you may only be able to get the complete assembly.

Upper rack roller axles are brittle and 1 has


Our upper wheel failed. It is part of the huge assembly called the "Rack Adjust" on our model # PLD4460REC Frigidaire Dishwasher and cost $88 to $120. Hey.. thanks to the guy above I was able to fix my machine without spending to much!! for a huge part when all I needed was the upper wheel. the part # for the upper wheels is = PS976006 and is for another model dishwasher (Sears located it for me first.. without trying to make me buy the huge assembly) but might work... I will order and give them a try. The model # referenced about seems to be incorrect... We used model # PLD2855RFC1... as google helped us fill in the missing part# letters. I asked frigidaire... why they encouraged customers to borrow this small part from the store display.. why not just sell it!! .;)

TOP RACK NOT CLEANING DISHES


Possible that the motor impeller has good particles in it, causing poor water pressure, which would be most evident on the top rack. You would have to remove the spray arm, then the filter, then the torx screws to get at impeller....unfortunately, that model of dishwasher isn't the greatest in the first place for washing, since it only has the one spray arm.

In my experience, you probably have a clog in the spray arm/arms for the top rack. Take the arm(s) out and see if the holes in them are clogged. Rice, plastic wrappers, and glass from dishes that broke in there are the most common culprits I've seen.

Top rack rail contently comming off the rollers. The rollers are wobbly, tried to tighten but will not go any tighter. are there better rollers available? PLD2850RDC2


Typically the roller wheels and the post tabs that hold them onto the sliding rack/guides will wear over time and depending on how heavily your family loads the racks, the sooner you'll need to replace them.

You can order new ones and do the job yourself which is the best solution for the situation you're describing. The only other thing to check is for the rack section that is attached to the inside dishwasher walls to make sure those screws are snug (don't overtighten and strip them out!) other than that, you still will need to replace the rollers on the extendable portion of the rack supports, etc. Hope that helps.

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,

Upper spray arm broke off


I hope it did not break, only came off. I had the same problem. You have to unscrew the round part from the ceiling of the dishwasher, put the three pieces together, easy, and then screw the whole thing back. No tools needed. Top rack can stay on while working. It helps if the dishwasher is empty. If the threading is good, this should solve the problem.

Frigidaire FDB740RCS0 Upper Armnot Turning


the motor stops and runs in the opposite direction to pump water up to the top rack. you first need to listen for the motor to stop and start. if you hear that open the door and try to tell if water was coming out of the top spray arm.
