Question about Kenmore 16602 / 16604 / 16609 Built-in Dishwasher
My wife showed me the lower rack of our dishwasher. The spikes that separate the plates/bowls etc. look like they were subject to extreme heat as the plastic on the spikes look melted and blackened. A replacement rack will cost me in excess of $80. I don't want to replace the rack and have the same thing happen again. What is causing the melting/burning of the separator spikes on the lower rack of this dishwasher?
Age/ poor quality plastic/sharp objects making contact/these are all common examples,I know there is a liquid plastic that you can purchase that really works and is safe to use.You wipe on the damaged areas and let it dry .

have an older dishwasher also and recently my wife also complained
about it not cleaning right... so me being the man I am tried in vain
to clean the things... Bought new spray arms online and installed
them in minutes...now the thing works like new... However I have also
found that if the heating element goes bad then that also can mess
things up bad... So I would buy new spray arms, and also check out
the heating element to make sure it is working... Here is a tip that
