Fix A Stuck Dishwasher Rack


  1. Remove the top rack (you likely need to push up on the assembly at the top of the dishwasher to allow it to be removed).
  2. Remove the metal clip from the dishwasher assembly that is loose at the top of the dishwasher.
  3. Add two strong, stainless steel magnets to the top of the metal clip.
  4. Carefully place the clip back in place in the top dishwasher assembly.
  5. Push the assembly back to the top of the dishwasher to allow the magnets to hold it in place.


I used these rust resistant magnets, they were small and strong!
