Dishwasher Rusting Help.......

Hey guys and gals. I have a 6 year old Maytag that's running fine. Only problem is some of the coating on the wires that make up the lower and higher racks have come off and the wire underneath is rusting.

Is there a replacement epoxy coating I can apply to it? Any help is appreciated.........

Consult with your own advisor or representative. My thoughts should not be construed as investment advice. Past performance is no guarantee of future results (love that one).......:)

Look for Uber Goop Dishwasher Rack Repair. I think has it.

If the goop option isn't working out, then hit Craigslist for cheap Maytags and bring your rack (or a tape measure) along to compare them.

Sounds kinda silly to discard the rest of the used dishwasher but it's cheaper than buying a new rack.

The book written on, "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement", on sale now! For more info see "About Me" in my profile.
I don't spend much time here anymore, so please send me a PM. Thanks.

I had this happen with a Whirlpool dishwasher a few years back. I called their 800 number and gave them the model number of the dishwasher. They shipped me a brand new rack. As I recall it was about $30 including shipping. No muss, no fuss, no goop, just took the old one out and put the new one in. Worth the cost to avoid the bother.

Yup...they can send men to the moon but you can't stop the dishwasher racks from rusting. I have gotten good results using 3M 4200 marine sealant on those dishwasher rust spots.
