Question about Dishwashers
The roller that seats in the track for the top diswasher rack of our maytag (mdb-5 model)...not those rollers mounted on the sidewalls....has broken out in the center piece of the roller. We tried epoxy and then when that failed, putting a screw through that center broken section, but that keeps backing out and won't hold long. The dishwasher is 5 years old, and short of replacing the entire top rack I need help with a solution. We are unable to find replacement rollers and I've read comments on some internet sites from other people with the same problem, getting no help from Maytag service. Can you help, we're retired and on limited income so we're trying to be economical about this fix? Thanks, June

I found an engineer who has made stainless steel axels for the rack...www.fifengr.com/maytag/....a cost of $40...but well worth the one time solution....

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!
