It is driving me nuts.  My Dishwasher (G.E.) had those wheels on the side of the bottom rack that roll in the track.  They keep popping off.  I had another dishwasher that did the very same thing and it was not a G.E.  Does anybody else have this problem?  If so, do you find it as maddening as I do?  Has anybody figured out a fix for this?  I am so sick and tired of fishing around on the bottom of the tub for the run away wheel and lifting the rack loaded with dishes to put it back on.  It is not one particular wheel, very democratically distributed.  HELP PLEASE.

I don't have that problem with mine, but the silverware holder falls off sometimes. Its kind of irritating because sometimes the easy open side opens and the silverware goes all over the place.

Not sure which is more annoying, in my case it hurts my back, in your case it is flying knives. Both are terrible. A bad testament to the quality of the products available. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful thanksgiving.

>> "in your case it is flying knives." yes I have almost had a few knives go thru my feet. I think they try to make things as cheep as they can get away with.

And they do get away with it, we are both putting up with the crappy product.

About Me
I am a retired registered nurse. I have two fabulous grandchildren ages 10 and 7, they live only 1 mile from me so we cook together often.
My favorite things to cook
I like one pot meals, slow cooker, rustic fare. Lately, I am cultivating recipes for soup and have turned out some really good results, especially using curry seasoning. I am not a baker.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I make many of my mother's dishes. I like to entertain with just a wide array of appetizers sometimes, even though it is labor intensive.
My cooking triumphs
My Italian spaghetti sauce. My famous pot roast made in an oven bag. Appetizers.
My cooking tragedies
My latest debacle is making Pho, Vietnamese beef soup. Very labor intensive, many exotic ingredients, cook all day. I went to strain it through a cheesecloth lined colander and forgot to put anything under the colander. Down the drain it went; 7 hours worth of broth. Oh Well!
