Hello,
This is common. You have two options repaint the rack, which is short term or replace the rack. Most of these racks have an extended warranty, check the use and care guide to verify.

Looking for part # for replacement of upper dishrack assy which started getting very rusty. Thank you


Rack replacement have been pricey for me. I have used a Rerack Dishwasher repair rubber repair adhesive with lots of success. I wire brushed the affected area overlapping the current coating. I applied with several coats making sure to overlap the current coating

Where some of the vertical posts had broken off I resealed the rack. I Made sure the rack was good and dry before applying.

This rubber repair is available everywhere I found it at Ace.

It has been in place for over two years holding up very well.

I need to put up a few coat racks in my new house but don't want to buy ones that are all the same. Where can i get cheap but fun coat racks?


You can get some really fun and funky coat racks these days and you don't have to spend a fortune on them.
Try looking at IKEA as they have some very traditional ones and also some more fun ones too.

Do all coat racks have umbrella stands?


Not all coat racks have umbrella stand. They are an extra embellishment. Most coat racks are a few pegs screwed into awall or a stand with a few outposts, often called a coat tree. While umbrella stands are nice, they are notprerequisites to coat racks.

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.

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.
