If youll check with a local appliance part store in your area they should have a repair kit for that so you wont have to replace the racks

How do I change the 3 prong wall mount to a 4 prong wall mount for a dryer?


Since you are asking, I would not suggest you try it. 240 volts is deadly. It would be easier to change cord to 3 prong and then add grounding wire from back of dryer to cold water pipe. The 4th prong is a ground connector, new standard for safety. Your house wiring may not be set up for it, or it might be. Unless you know what you are doing, let someone who does do it for you. Be safe pls

Kenmore Dryer Model #11060932990 Proper grounding when changing 4 prong cord to 3 prong.


According to the National Electric Code, you will need to install a grounding strap from the frame to neutral in a 4- to 3-wire conversion.

Kitchen Aid SS Dishwasher KUD102CRBS1 - Top Rack has 3 rusty spot


Looks like you can get the upper rack for about half that, direct from Sears-
Dishwasher Dishrack Upper Part Number 8539234 Sears PartsDirect
Still kinda pricey if you only have a few bad spots.

There is special touchup coating (never tried it myself, but looks like it gets good reviews, and the price is right)

Or prong covers if you just have rust or damage on the tips (I've used ones like these, the long ones stay on good)

Rusty dish rack


Clearly a design or manufacturing flaw. I have the same model and the rack is disintegrating after 6 years. I believe it is a manufacturing flaw. Our previous dishwasher rack lasted over 20 years in the same conditions. Same construction, vinyl covered steel. New upper and lower racks cost over 200.00 and there is no guarantee that this won't happen every six years. I recommend a new non-Maytag dishwasher as soon as you can. Meanwhile, limp along with the defective racks.
