Short time lurker, first time poster here. The top rack+track assembly has finally fallen to dust. Also, the bottom rack has rusted through far more extensively than I realized.

Checking every parts site I could find has made it clear that racks (and most parts) are really no longer available. I'm waiting for a guy with a KDS-19 parts donor on Ebay to get back to me, so I figured I'd take a shot here.

Does anyone know of any such racks in reasonable condition anywhere? I've also tried Craigslist to no particular avail.

I'm assuming I'm out of luck, but I really hate to retire a machine that's older than me, and never needed any repairs of any sort...

Lovers of vintage Hobart/KA machines are welcome here. I would imagine that either John LeFever (Combo52) (an appliance repairman for over 40 years) or Stevet (Hobart service tech) can help you. I have a good knowledge of Hobart DWs as does Toploader55 and several others. You have come to the right place.

We have good used racks available for pickup, the lower rack is $50 and top racks are $55.
