Question about Frigidaire Dishwashers

Open Question

The top rack in my dishwashers gets stuck at the second set of caster wheels. The bracket that holds the rack clears the first set very well but for some reason doesnt fit through the second set unless you force them.

SOURCE: 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,

SOURCE: Just installed new dishwasher top rack will not slide in

I had the same problem with my new GE. They installed 2 brand new upper racks.$$ it worked ok for about a month and then I had to force it in again. on the 7th repair call in as many months my repair guy walked in the door stating that he finally knew how to fix the problem. It is caused by poor design in the wheels. they are porous and the detergent breaks them down and they swell. new wheels from an older model fixed the problem. they have RND on the case.

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.

SOURCE: Can nott remove the dishwasher from under bench.

Hi

You would need to remove the some parts before removing the dishwasher. Please check the schematic at this link (Page #22)---

Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603 Dishwasher Schematics

You would need Screwdriver & Wrench for removal of the dishwasher. Unplug your dishwasher to uninstall the appliance. Turn off the water, the electricity at the breaker and power to the dishwasher. Locate the wire nuts that connect the black and white wires from the power source to your dishwasher. Open the dishwasher door and remove the screws that hold it to the bottom of the countertop. Guide your dishwasher and the drain line slowly out of the opening.
Hope this helps... If it does please do not forget to accept the solution or post back for assistance.

How do I replace the rollers on the top rack of a kitchenaid dishwasher


Remove the screws holding the dishwasher to the cabinet. depending on how yours was installed you may be able to slid it out far enough that yo won't have to disconnect the water and electric. I would shut off the breaker though. Once out pull the insulation away from the dishwasher to get to the screws holding the roller brackets in place.

How do you stabalize dishwasher in installation?


All 4 feet/wheels usually have some sort of leveling feature. But, the most important thing to do is secure the bracket just above the open door to the underside of the counter top. This will hold the machine in place when you pull out both full racks. Without screws securing that bracket, the machine will most surely tip over. Good luck

Whirlpool dishwasher. dishes on top rack are not getting clean


Check the center sprayer is not clogged. The two arms should have clear holes and some of the sprayers have a center post that raises to clean the top rack. Make sure the center post lifts by hand and is not stuck with food or gunk.

Top wash rack doesn't get water


does the unit have a half load selection? if so then it may be stuck in half load due to a faulty solenoid in the base.

Tight steering - after cornering the steering will not return to neutral position. have already tried a steering rack


Steering rack isnt your problem. First question is has the car suspention been altered in any way. Lowerd or anything.

This more than likely is an alighnment issue. Inproper alightnment can cause a hard steering effort, Slow return to center after turning, and many other things.

Do you have any unusual tire wear?

The problem may be in your caster. Has the car ever been in a front end accident of a side collision tword the front end. If you caster between the driver and passanger side one wheel will be influenced more than the other, which will cause the wheels not to return to the steer ahead position giving you this tight steering issue. Dose you car have any pulling issues from one side to the other?

You will need to take it to a shop and get your alighnment checked. Alot of shops do a free alighnment check.

If your alighnment is bad Have them do the alighnment and ask the tech. and the manager to examin your caster settings. If Caster is way out then I would sugest getting a diagnostic alighnment done and checking the set back of the side in questions.

If the car was in a accident a bent lower control arm could be what is affecting your caster

I have Kitchen Aid Dishwasher Model # KUDMOITJBLO. We began having trouble with the top rack coming out of the brackets on the upper rack track. Kitchen Aid sent me 4 parts # 8268785. The problem is...


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.

GE dishwasher nautilus - bottom tray caster wheels come off daily.


I finally found a solution after 2 years! Appliancezone.com has wheels and studs to fix problem. WD12x10136 and wd12x10277. About $17.00 and rack is rolling perfectly. GE wanted 200 for an entire rack, no thank you!
