The apartment has all Whirlpool appliances- washer/dryer, stovetop/oven, microwave, and dishwasher. They all work fine (haven’t used the oven yet and don’t intend to) but it’s the dishwasher that has my panties in a twist.
When I moved in the silverware holder was sitting where you’d expect one to sit, in the lower rack, either front or right. But no matter where I placed the holder in the lower rack, it either fell over (front) or didn’t go in at all (right side).
I looked through the owners manual and saw no photo of where the silverware holder was to go. I felt stupid calling maintenance but I did anyway and much to my surprise, they said the silverware holder goes in the door! What??
You can only put silverware in the holder when the lower rack is pushed in, because this happens! 🤦🏻♀️
Here’s where my logic says the silverware should go but look closely…..
It doesn’t fit so you must acquit.. at least a full inch gap and do way to attach silverware basket to back of lower rack unless I do so myself with zip ties (which I very well may do).
Dumber than the location of the silverware basket is that tall pieces, like knives, don’t fit without hitting the place where you add detergent.
I used the dishwasher for the first time today and after the cycle, the silverware bin was wet with splashed water drops, ergo the silverware itself was also wet. Doink.
I think I’ll go back to hand washing. After all, Dixie paper plates don’t require washing!
