Your dishwasher most likely needs to be re-leveled.
Remove the toe-kick plate at he bottom front of the DW. Use a wrench to lengthen the front leveling legs to raise the front of the dishwasher.

ASKO 1375 Dishwasher top rack keeps rolling out


Your dishwasher may have sagged since being level when installed.

Top rack automatically slides out upon opening door


Hi,

This is actually a feature to allow the user easy access of sliding out the top rack. A look at the parts diagram disclosed that there is no mechanism activating this and therefore could be assumed to be gravity driven. It would stop a few inches due to the action or rather inaction of the rollers which would require user intervention (pull).

The only modification I could think of is to change how the inner rails are attached by inclining it to prevent the sliding out. The idea would be to lean in the upper rack to prevent gravity from sliding it out. Am not sure if inclining the entire dishwasher would affect the overall performance but it is also a possibility.

I have taken the liberty of including the diagram of the upper track should you wish to reference it.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Top rack slides all the way out


Most likely your dishwasher is not level, but is tilting forward. Just extend the front leveling legs down further to raise the front end of the dishwasher. Otherwise, the rack glides may be damaged or bent.

Water is not spraying on top rack


Assuming the rotating assembly comes out when you slide out the top rack:
Verify the nozzle mates correctly when the top rack is slid back in
Verify the holes in the rotating assembly are clear and open
You can remove the rotating assembly and pour some water into the nozzle to see if water comes out of the holes in the rotating assembly. Perhaps you have something plugging the nozzle.
If the holes are plugged, there is a product that you can put into the dishwasher to clean it - Home Depot, Lowes, Menards, and many grocery stores here in the states sell the stuff.

My kitchenaid dishwasher won't stay shut. It pops


Check that there isn't something still in the very back of the rack (top or bottom) that's sticking out and keeping the rack from sliding all the way in. Similarly, if the problem goes away when you take the racks out, the problem is with the racks. Otherwise, it's the latch: either the eye (attached to the top of the machine) is bent/broken, or the hook (inside the top of the door) is broken. Good luck.

Top Rack always slides out fully


Well, you are right on about the level. It is tilted just slightly forward. The only parts to go bad are the plastic ball bearing guides, and usually when they go, you get a rack that wont come out and gets jammed. You 've got the problem, you just need to remove the screws hidden in the holes that are sometimes coverd with rubber plugs so that the dishwasher may move freely, andjust it till it no longer rolls out, then screw it back to the counter to hold it in place. There are no springs in that rack, so either its still tilted forward, or the tank is bowed or bent somehow, and that would mean new dishwasher. Hope this helps!
