Where can I buy replacement dishwasher racks for an ancient machine?

Rack question.....we have an ancient dishwasher - which is integrated and still works perfectly (though obviously I've jinxed that now!). The model number/make is: Philips Whirlpool DW721/1 w .........really could do with replacing the upper and lower racks due to rust.....is there any chance these are a) available or b) would current model racks fit? Thank you x

The racks are probably no longer available new but if you check with appliance repair shops they shouls have something that will work because several brands are made by the same mfg and parts wioll interchange.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Our Maytag dishwasher, mod MDB9150AWS,

Yes, I resolved the problem after thoroughly studying the assembly. It was relatively simple; all I had to do was turn the spray tower 90 degrees and it came free of the rack.

Thanks for the web site, nonetheless.

SOURCE: model gu2700xtss1, upper rack not clean at all,

I am here for the exact same reason. Mine is less than 3 months old. This may be a recall item. I bought, and paid more for a kitchen aide for the name and reputation.....Where can I find the model number?

SOURCE: LG dishwasher does not seem to clean items on lower rack

Can you tell me if the problem was fixed by the original posters?
The multi-level wash direction feature uses a check valve just below the mesh filter asembaly and is driven by a vario motor underneath the check valve. By removing the mesh filter (10 screws and the lower spray arm) you expose the check valve. It is very close to the pump that empties the water through the drain hose.

High probability problems: -The Check Valve could be jamed/stuck. -Also, the Vario Motor could have failed
Please respond back with the findings on this problem. Thanks!

How do I remove the top rack?


Good Morning friend, thank you for your post!

Based off what your have described you need assistance in removing the top rack off your Electrolux dishwasher. In order to remove the top rack you would need to remove the caps from your rail and you should be able to pull it up and out. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

We have got the machine for approximately 2 years and the top dish rack has corroded so badly that I think it might collapse with a load on it. What could be the cause of it?


The causes are usually poorly coated rack combined with rough usage (coating pierced
by cutlery, broken stemware, etc., combined with hard (mineral-laden) water, which
corrodes the steel of the rack quickly.
Luckily, the upper rack is replaceable, so check:

I have a GE profile dishwasher. The wheels on the lower rack have all come off and I can't seem to get it back on. On some, the piece that snaps to the rack is either broken or melted off somehow. Do I...


You just need the wheels. I have bought the upper rack wheels before, now I need the lowers. I have found a site selling them at 10.00 each. I am going to keep looking, I think I can do better, considering I need 4. I might just buy a new washer if I have to spend 40.00 plus shipping! I will post back if I find a better deal.
