Tip for dishwasher repair (by Susan [FL]) Posted on: Jan 20, 2023 11:59 AM

My current update project list included the dishwasher - Whirlpool - 3 years old. The racks tips inside rusting, the tips are broken off.

Contacted Whirlpool parts. The top rack $225. Bottom rack $575.

What???

Youtube saved me. I didn't know this quick fix was out there.

There are tips that slide right over the damaged tips. And there is adhesive to secure them. Total project cost: under $30.00.

Just thought I'd pass this little tip on to my Tribe.

There is also a product called liquid tape.

Black, heavy body sold in electric and electronics supply stores. Electronic store probably has small sizes.

Electric supply probably has pints and quarts.

Tape it off for neatness, then rhree or four coats.

Done

if your equipment in the rentals are that bad with that kind of rust-- the tip is to put in a new one and jack the rent. --108.239.xx.xx

This one from Roy-Al has been around awhile, drop in a few vitamin-c tablets and run a short cycle to make it smell nice and take away rusty looking edges. --76.190.xxx.xxx

Great tips. Also, don't buy parts from the manufacturer unless you have to. I needed to replace a broken plastic shelf in a Frigidaire. I saved $90 on Amazon, and that doesn't even include the free shipping with Prime. --107.141.xx.xxx

If you get the part number, you'll usually find them on ebay (new and used) for a lot less. --108.201.xx.xx

Most appliances use common parts. Keep you eyes open at the dump.

I've "repurposed" dryer/stove electrical cords, ice trays, dishwashers rinse caps .... the universe provides! --198.168.xx.xxx

Thanks for the tip (pun intended)! We have used plastic tips in the past - the type that are intended for covering the ends of protruding bolts and screws. They help, but something with adhesive sounds great. --96.245.xx.xx
