Top Tray clips on diswasher broken

The clips holding the top tray in place have broken (one by one) over the years. I need to replace all four now, as the top tray cannot support any weight.

Does someone know where I can buy them?

    One top tray clip is broken on our Westinghouse 920 Dishwasher. Where can you buy replacements. (which shop?, Bunnings?) Any idea what they cost?

I have the same problem and there is an inherent design flaw. You can normally buyt these at most outlets, however you can buy more than 4 to support the tray, or I have cut a small diameter aluminium tube (1/4" diameter) and threaded it through the tray from the side and into the sliding rails. It is not an ideal solution, but will last a lot longer than the silly grey wheels! Doi two bits ( one at the back and one at the front.) You have to play around a bit to get the drawer to move in and out, but it is much stronger than before. Good luck Charles in Australia

Top tray wheels keep falling off


I feel for you! I have been tortured by the blasted wheels falling off every time I go to put something into the dishwasher, or want to empty it. To add to it all, this part is no longer available to replace, which I need to do as one of the clips finally snapped off. It is a highly frustrating design flaw in this machine.

Hello there, I have a Bosch Logixx dishwasher which I purchased just over 2 years ago. My upper dishwasher tray is not fitting properly into the hose pipe holes on the inside of the back wall of the...


Hello Deepak,

You can definitely fix this yourself, but I'm not entirely sure from your description which part is "dropping off". It may be a simple fix where something needs to be clipped back into place or you may need to replace something. Please can you take a look at the images below and identify which part you are having trouble with.

Below is the back of the upper spray arm which clips on to the upper rack. It has a grey plastic cover behind which is a large white plastic washer / gasket. The washer simply slots in to the back of the spray arm and the grey cover clips in over the top.

Your description suggests the grey plastic cover and/or the white washer are dropping off. If the grey plastic cover is missing, it may have fallen into the bottom of the washer under the lower rack, in which case you should be able to find it and clip it back on. If it's missing or wont clip back on, you will need to replace the upper spray arm as the cover and washer are not available separately.

This is the water delivery tube which clips to the back wall of the washing compartment. There is a metal clip which secures the tube to the wall. The open hole and one of the spigots slot in to the two holes in the back of the upper spray arm above. The spigot used depends on which height setting the upper rack is on.

Basically, everything simply clips together. If nothing is broken, you should be able to fix this at no cost by simply clipping the offending part back into place.

Hope this helps. If you need further assistance or help locating replacement parts, please let me know what needs to be replaced. Nearly all Bosch parts are available and in stock direct from Bosch.

Regards,
BElectric

Hello. The problem is most likely in the rear of the top drawer. Pull out the drawer and empty it of all dishes. In the very rear you will see a tube that will align with the water supply tube on the rear of the machine. there are little clips that hold this tube in position. Sometimes the tube gets disconnected due to a large pot or tray on the bottom and must be reattached by merely pushing the clips onto the tray. Regards, Joe

Frigidaire dishwasher - upper spray arm trouble?


I do not have a problem w/the upper arm not spinning. Rather, the upper arm keeps falling off of my frigidair dishwasher. The owner's manual suggests the upper arm is a single unit. However, the upper arm component is comprised of 3 parts. The parts are an arm that distributes the water, the base that screws to the top of the dishwasher, and a small plastic type washer that rides in the base and literally holds the arm to the base. The plastic washer has two small clips that tend to wear or contrast with age; thus letting the arm fall off on a very frequent basis.

Potentially, the small plastic washer piece may have broken in the base assembly and is not allowing the arm to turn. As water flows into the arm from a hole in the base; suggesting the plastic washer may be jammed with a foreign item seems less likely. The base unit screws to the top of the dishwasher and can be removed by hand (the base is a little tight). There are no mechanical pieces to my third (upper) arm; movement of the arm is accomplished with water flow.

You may wish to remove the arm assembly and check for a broken washer or a foreign item in the assembly. As a side note, I found that I can unscrew the base and remove the assembly without removing the top dish tray. The fit is a little tight but the tedium of pulling and reinstalling the top tray can be eliminated by unscrewing the assembly w/the tray slid forward for assembly access.

Hope all you have is a foreign item that is locking the washer.

Spray arms clogged


Top: Remove the upper tray by releasing the clips on the ends of the runners. (Squeeze the top of the clip and pull upwards). Remove the spray arm by holding the round plastic clip that holds the arm and turning the arm. It will unscrew.

Bottom: Grab spray arm in centre and pull sharply upwards to unclip.

Wash in warm water and solvent-free detergent.

GE Dishwasher makes loud banging noise


Check the stainless steel cover on the bottom of the lower rack sprayer. If it has been bent downward on either end, it will hit the inside panel of the door near the bottom. It may score the panel as it hits on each rotation of the sprayer.

Just bend it back in position, carefully, with a pair of pliers. The technique required is similar to bending the pocket clip of a fountain pen back into the proper position after it has been sprung out too far. You might practice on a pen or mechanical pencil clip to see what I mean.

Dirt left on dishes on top tray; bottom tray washes fine


The broken bottom arm is probably preventing any water / water under pressure to get to the upper arm.
After you replace the lower arm, you should have much better cleaning in the top shelf.
While you are in there replacing the lower arm, recommend you remove the filter under it and clean the filter and any debris you find. Be careful of broken glass!
Good Luck!

I can't reatach top( glasses) rack I can't figure out where the clips go into.


The clips attach to the upper tray assembly...you clip the little roller assemblies (all one piece) onto the bottom of the tray...along the lowest part of the tray...when clipped in place...(I'm not sure but there will be an even # on both sides) you then put the tray back into place and it will roll inside or along a silver track...which may have a slot cut out where the rollers drop down into and then the tray is pushed back...into place and the last roller drops into the slot and the tray will extend along with the arm that the rack is sitting in/on.
I hope this helps...any more ??...just ask....good luck...thanks for rating my effort...The Fang.

SHU 9922 UC Top wash arm came off


We've just had the same problem, after a little frustration trying to get it to fix on to the back wall of the washer, we realised that it fixes onto the underside of the actual tray. When you pull the tray out, the arm comes with it, and then when you push it in, it engages with the holes.

Easy when you know how!!

Flood protection is activating


Had the same problem on a Miele mashing. In my case trying to clear a drain blockage in a kitchen sink had probably forced water back into the washing machine and caused an internal leakage. Rather than remove the whole machine and tip it over, I opened the small panel at the front bottom (behind the skirting panel) (needs 'special' screwdriver for the 2 screws) and removed the water that was lying on the base of the machine. Not much (less than 5mm) but enough to lift the white polystyrene float (a round disc about 10cm diameter) which was activating the micro-switch and causing the F70 message.
