I know I shouldn't complain, I do have a dishwasher after all. However, I'm sure I'm not the only one who has this problem…holes in the basket causing the silverware to fall through, preventing the rack from rolling in or out.
Come on in and see how easy the fix is for only a few cents.
Here's the problem…pictured from the top of the basket. Parts of the plastic grid broke away.
This is a view from the bottom.
I outlined the culprit.
More than one piece of silverware slips through this hole and we can't roll the rack in or out. Not to mention the silverware that I've bent from this.
Here's the fix. My favorite zip ties.
Find a secure part of the grid in the basket and thread the zip tie through.
With your hand inside the basket, push the end up through another secure part of the grid.
Lock the zip tie and pull tight until it's snug.
It will look like this.
Snip off the left over end of the zip tie.
I added one more horizontal tie and then finished with one vertical one. Yours might be different according to your basket or how big your hole is.
This is the view from the inside of the basket.
All silverware up and in the basket with nothing slipping through. Woo Hoo!!
I have a feeling this picture will spark something in the comment section whether silverware should be up or down in the basket. Lol
I'm an "up" person, but at this point, I'm just happy my family gets it "IN" the dishwasher…up or down!
I'm hoping this will be helpful for anyone who has the same problem. It's a quick fix for next to nothing.
Thanks for stopping by,
