ASKO Dishwasher Tip – The Stuck Top Rack – ASKO Review

Written by Appliance Dude | February 12th, 2015

When I brought my ASKO D5628XXLS home last week I noticed that the top rack was extremely stiff and somewhat unforgiving when I attempted to pull it out to load dishes. I also noticed the same situation in another ASKO that we have on display in our showroom. Hmmm..faulty racks? Bad tracks?

Neither.

I spoke to a guy who knows more about ASKO dishwashers than almost any human in NY.
He explained it like this to me….

One of the reasons ASKO’s clean so well is that they have multiple spray arms throughout the dishwasher that are directly fed high pressure water. If you notice the below picture there is a black ring around the end of the pipe which feeds water into the spray arms directly under the top rack in the D5628XXLS dishwasher.

That pipe and the orifice in the spray arm need to make a tight seal so there is good pressure and no water leaking out from it. The black ring helps with the seal but the flipside is that it sometimes it takes a little muscle to get the top rack to roll out smoothly.

The pipe running from the back of the dishwasher is now engaged with the spray arm. This seal can make the top rack a little stiff when trying to pull it out.

Solution – take some vaseline (or chapstick) and rub it around the black ring and the end of the pipe.
I’ve been told that it will completely alleviate the tightness of the rack.

Peace!
