The top rack of the dishwasher is rusting out. It creates debris on the bottom of the dishwasher - why would the rack start to rust? Do you know if they sell replacements?

I noticed water coming from underneath my dishwasher so I pulled it out from the wall and found that underneath the factory installed installation there was a screw missing that holds the top dishwasher...


Speak with who you purchased the dishwasher from. They will be able to point you in the direction to get a replacement and file a complaint. All of this is provided you bought the machine in the last year.

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.

Rust and scratches inside door


Call customer service. This should not happen; especially after only two months. Get the door (or entire unit) replaced.

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.

Maytag portable dishwasher, dish racks are very rusted in 2 years


This is Maytags solution


Do the dishwasher racks have chips or scratches showing exposed metal underneath?
If minor rack repairs are needed, a dishwasher rack repair kit just might work. To review this product or purchase the kit, click here.
Should you purchase the kit online, enter Promo Code F9A75Q4 in the Review Order screen when you check out to receive a 10% discount on your order.
For more severe rack damage, a replacement rack may need to be purchased; call the Maytag Customer eXperience Center toll-free at 1-866-616-2601, Monday-Friday, 8AM-6PM, Eastern Time.

I would call the toll free number and see if a free replacement is available. If not at least try to get a big discount on replacing them.

Good luck and thanks for using Fix Ya, please take the time to rate this solution (from Fix Ya, not Maytag, I didn't like their solution).

Maytag dishwasher model #PDB3600AWX prongs rust & disintegrate


Getting a replacement set is not hard www.partselect.com has the part. If you don't want to spend the money you might try scraping the rust off of the prongs and then use a high temperature rated epoxy product to dab a new covering over the exposed steel. That might last for awhile. I'm guesssing. I think it needs to be a covering that can stand high temperature with a rating of at least 200 degrees or better and a chemical and humidity resistance rating. An electrical conductivity rating and thermal conductivity rating are not required. Its a patch but it might work Ok. I don't think the rust will get on your bottles but the prongs will weaken and break after awhile so if you can stop the rusting that will help you get more life out of the racks.

Rusty racks


Check your warranty to see if it covers your racks. Some models have a longer warranty against rack rusting if you have Duraguard racks. If they are Dura guard racks and still under warranty, Maytag will replace them at no charge.

Rusty dish rack


Clearly a design or manufacturing flaw. I have the same model and the rack is disintegrating after 6 years. I believe it is a manufacturing flaw. Our previous dishwasher rack lasted over 20 years in the same conditions. Same construction, vinyl covered steel. New upper and lower racks cost over 200.00 and there is no guarantee that this won't happen every six years. I recommend a new non-Maytag dishwasher as soon as you can. Meanwhile, limp along with the defective racks.
