I bought a new Whirlpool dishwasher 3 years ago.  the top rack collapsed today.  I called the dealer and he is coming Monday to repair it free of charge.  This is a small dealer who has been in business since the 1950s.  He will make it right.

That's too bad. There are a lot of reviews of Whirlpool dishwashers that mention the top rack breaking. Did you figure out the cause of the failure?

My WP is going on 2 years and 5 months of service. The top rack feels pretty cheap and wobbly. I'm wondering how long it will last...

Sorry to hear about that.

Any idea what made it collapse? Couldn't be rust at just 3 years old. Must have something to do with the rack sliders.

What quality rack sliders do these dishwashers use - including the maytag units?
