SOURCE: I have Kitchen Aid Dishwasher

I removed the tracks from inside the dishwasher.  Then I was able to carefully remove the endcaps (something I had not been able to do previously) carefully.  The existing broken wheels slid out and I slid two new brackets into each track.   If I attached the tracks to the rack first, I would not be able to clip them into place, so I first replaced the endcaps and then returned the tracks to their positions inside the dishwasher. Reattaching the upper rack is not difficult, but takes two people while I connected the left side, my assistant supported the rack on the right side.  I then connected the right side of the rack.  I slide the rack back and forth to macke sure that is worked smoothly.  We then loaded the dishwasher and washed our dishes as we had in the past.

the only way you can tell if the upper rack is not getting enough water is to turn a glass right side up in each corner. then run for 2 minutes and see if there is water in each cup.
if you still dont get water, then you have checked the pump, the only thing left is that you are not getting enough water into the unit.
start the d/w at a normal cycle, let it fill and go into the wash cycle, takes about 3 minutes, then check to see if the water level is just below the heating element. if so then it has to be the wash pump being plugged.
if not enough water then you should change the water inlet valve. some times they do get plugged but also make sure you are getting full water pressure to the unit as that could cause not enough water into unit. the faucet under sink could be at fault i have seen valve work but not let enough water in, so dont be surprised if you need a new valve.

It is rusting from the inside out.

SOURCE: How do you remove the upper dishwasher rack? It's

The upper rack is held by four side brackets. They are not removable unless you pull the dishwasher out from under the cabinet. Not very homeowner friendly.

Kenmore elite dishwasher top rack falling


The end of the track facing out has a plastic cap with a half circle molded into it. Slide the half circle sidways to release it from the track. Remove the basket. It will be obvious from that point how the adjusters are attached.

Two grey plastic pieces came loose. Don't know where they belong inside the dishwasher?They are both the same. They apparently hook onto something on the rack, but I don't have a clue?


If these two grey pieces are about 1 1/2" long and a 1/2" wide. They are used to retain the upper rack onto the tracks to prent the rack from falling out and used as a rack stopper. There are two on the front and two on the back of the top rack. How to insert them may differ dependant on the model. look at the two still attached and you may be able to re-install them.

At an appliance spare parts shop or by calling a number in the booklet that came with your dishwasher that you probably don't have anymore.

2 upper rack rollers cracked in Maytag #MDB7600AWS - cant find simple replacement rollers for inside track - 1 1/4" - of upper rack.


JP Weld works great on repairing these junky Maytag parts. Note that they don't have a replacement for these upper wheels and a guy is selling expensive stainless steel replacements. The round connector broke off of ours that holds the wheel to the rack. My wife found a plastic button that fit within the space and we glued it with JP Weld epoxy (water and temperature resistant). 10 washes later, still working great! I expect it will "heal" any other plastic parts. NEVER will I buy a Maytag again!

hi Problems with the dish racks usually occur because the racks have been jammed back into the tub housing after they're fully loaded. Careless handling can exert enough force to crack or break the roller wheels or throw the racks off the tracks. The solution is easy: Stop jamming the racks. 
The repair is easy, too. Remove the racks by pulling out the tiny metal pins that hold them in the tracks. Or simply lift up on the racks and pull them out of the tracks. Then reinstall the racks on the tracks so that they roll smoothly. If the rollers are cracked or broken, replace them with new ones of the same type. The rollers may be friction-fit to their hubs. Pull them off for replacement. Or, if they are held by tiny spring clips, pull the clips out with pliers, or pry them out with the tip of a screwdriver. If you can't pull the rollers off for replacement, remove and replace the entire rack.

The bottom rack of the dishwasher is always coming off the "track" or what passes for one. The wheels seem too small or the rack isn't wide enough Makes it very diificult to push in or pull out.

A noisy wash cycle or water that won't drain are problems that, for the most part, can be handled yourself. We'll discuss how you can pinpoint these water-related problems in the next section.
