    Have tried that, it seems that the rack is no longer available, and there is no suitable replacement for it.

    In that case there is another, but more difficult way to do it and it won't look as pretty. But is functional.....

Yard sale barbeque... how to clean the racks in it?


I would start by turning on the grill and heating it up for about 5 minutes. Use a brush to scrape off any stuck on food from the top and bottom of the racks. Take them off the grill while warm, be sure to use oven mits, and put them in a plastic container. If you want, you can use one of the commercial products like Easy Off on the top and bottom of the racks, but beware, these containers are toxic and cause skin burns and eye irritation, so use at your own risk. You can also use a non-toxic and biodegradable product, which I would recommend, it will just take longer. No matter which product you use, let it sit and work for a while, then brush/scrub off the racks. Make sure you rinse them well with water, especially if you use a product like Easy Off. If the racks are enamel coated and the enamel is coming off, or if the racks are rusted, get new ones.

How to Stop the dishwasher from breaking my glasses


This shelving costs $16 plus $20 for powder coating.
Very easy to assemble taking about 2 hours.
It will stabilize your dishwasher trays so glasses wont fall over. Therefore wont break.
Buy 2 large Baking racks with 1 cm holes from Myers for $8 each.
Use your Angle Grinder to cut to size, making sure the cross wires running from left to right are on top of the long runs. This is because your glasses would slip all the way to the front, if you mounted the racks up the wrong way.
Basically I cut off only one side of the rack, using the cutoff piece for the middle hole.
Next flatten those legs that wont let the rack sit flat down, by using your vice and hammer.

See the diagram below how wide the framing supports wires are apart, that is why nothing stands up on them.
You may have to discard other supplied movable racking.
But the inserted racks, with a hole cut in the middle rack to allow a raised support wire some space, are very stable.

Now after cutting hammering and bending the racks loose some coating and will rust with little rust marks appearing on the edges of all your crockery and cups.
Therefore you will need to powder coat them any colour for years of protection.
Just find a powder coater in the yellow pages and give him the cutout racks.
To save money I told him to coat my Black racks to any colour in his machine, which turned out white.
Note the glass which now stands up stable and straight.

Rust spots on bottom rack


You may need to replace the rack. Dishwasher soap is aggressive and once an area is exposed, it will rust fast. Make sure you don't place sharp objects in direct contact with a rack. The action inside the washer can cause them to move and rub through the metal rack coating.

Rusty holes on drum


Hi
If you find a good plasticizing epoxy it should work great for this most plastic epoxies can withstand temperatures up to 500 degrees F. I dont see the hot water supply feeding the machine getting any warmer than this. Another option would be to find someone with a plastic fusion and filler welder and just weld the hole shut with a base material.

OR
Follow this easy steps...
Unplug the dryer from the electrical socket to avoid accidental electrocution.
Sand or scrub the rust spots using steel wool or sandpaper. Rust creates pits and these pits need to be smooth, like the rest of the drum areas, to prevent the rust from getting worse and to allow touch-up paint to stick.
Clean the entire inside of the drum to remove all the dust left from sanding/scrubbing. Mild soap and water will work well. Use old rags that can be thrown away.
Let the drum dry completely. You can run your dryer on the fluff dry cycle for a few minutes to dry the drum faster. If you use a heat cycle, the drum will become too hot and you will have to wait while it cools
Apply an appliance paint (see Resources) in the color that most closely matches your drum. Use the applicator that comes with the paint to dab the paint on the rust spots. You may need to add more than one coat, but make sure that you are letting the first coat dry before adding more to avoid drip marks. Allow all coats of paint to dry thoroughly before using the dryer.

There are some worn, rusty spots on the lower basket of our Magtag. These are small spots where the plates rest against the tines. Are there any products to repair the plastic finish?


You can buy tine caps and repair goop at an appliance repair shop, however once rust has penetrated it is generally hard to stop

My viking dishwasher does not rinse the soap scum off the dishes


Maybe . . . remove the lower rack and invert it. Look for cracked or missing plastic coating, exposed, rusted & possibly "swollen" inner steel rod/wire. If found, remove the upper rack and look for more of the same. What you think is "soap scum" is probably rust and other iron compounds leached by the dish soap out of the rusted steel onto the dishes and the dishwasher interior. The following worked for me . . .

To clean the interior (with both racks removed), set to "No Heat" dry, then "Pot & Pan" wash and allow to fill. Open door, dump in a bottle of "Lime A-Way", close & latch door and allow to complete cycle. This should remove most rust and iron-sulphate deposits from interior. If not, scrub them with Lime A-Way and a ScotchBrite pad, then cycle again.

Racks must be replaced (Viking are very expensive, Asko, Bosch, or other lower racks may fit: check your neighbors' racks for fit), upper rack must be Viking unless you can exact-match the Asko or Bosch equivalent.

Possible fix: remove the loose plastic coating and flaking rust with a knife, ruff plastic coating with ScotchBrite, clean with rubbing alcohol, then treat metal/rust with "rust converter" (hardware or home imp store), wash with soapy water, rinse, then clean with rubbing alcohol, dry fully, coat with "high temp" (orange or yellow) silicone sealant (auto part store), covering exposed metal and a half inch or so over the plastic coating. Let set for a day or two.

A trip through the dishwasher for all your stained stainless, glasses and non-metallic coated or non-metallic decorated dishes with Lime A-Way as above (on new or "rebuilt" racks) should get the metallic scum and rust off them.

This is Maytags solution


Do the dishwasher racks have chips or scratches showing exposed metal underneath?

RUST SPOTS


My 10 year old Kenmore (Whirlpool) top load washer is rusting under the top cover. The entire cover from the bleach dispenser all around is rusted under the lid. Periodically, rust dislodges into the tub and stains whites. You would have to treat the rust under the lid. I decided to try, using "Rust-mort" rust treatment on a rag. The rust would all have to be wetted with the rustmort after some scrubbing with a scuff pad. I have not attempted this yet.
I went to OSH and checked lids on new top load washers. The lip on the cheaper models was not properly coated with paint, and I could feel the rough partially exposed metal, which would rust. The more expensive models had a smooth well coated lip on the underside of the cover. Hope this helps.
