Hi, i am about to order replacement "rack adjuster kit" (ps10064063) as our wheels have broken off (which appears to be a common problem with these units). My question: As we have taken the top rack out we notice that at the connection end of the under-mount "manifold" for the "sprayer" there are two water intakes that have these 7/8" round screens (filters?) that appear to be hinged flap type things. One screen springs back while the other side remains half open. We assume the sprayer is operating ok but wonder if the filter things are critical and if its a necessary (or wise) to to replace the manifold and sprayer (parts ps11753224 and ps11754873) while we replace the rack adjusters? We love our dishwasher and want to keep it good condition. Thanks!

Thanks for your question.The screens are there to prevent food and soap build up inside the spray arms. If they dishes are still coming clean then there is no immediate issues but over time it will cause the spray arms to become blocked and the dishes will not come out clean. It would be best to replace them before it becomes and issue.
Good luck with this repair!

Upper rack slides out since day one. I watched the tech level the hell out of the dishwasher and when i noticed this happening i checked too. It's level!!! when the upper rack is in the bottom most position it is not a problem. when you pull the rack out it has a positive retaining feel to it. when it is in the upper most position (which we need for the size of our dishes) it slides out. i put my finger to the opening of the manifold and the door swings back and probably gives the rack enough resistance to stay put. when it is in the upper position the door is wide open with no resistance at all. does it seem reasonable that replacing the manifold will fix this?

Hello Seth, Thank you for your inquiry. The manifold attaches to the upper rack so if it is not in the correct position or loose, it could cause the rack to slide out. We would advise checking the rack adjusters/wheel assembly as well. Hope this helps!
Keep searches simple. Use keywords, e.g. "leaking", "pump", "broken" or "fit".
Sorry, we couldn't find any existing installation instruction that matched.
rubber flaps on the end of the manifold were worn - no pressure
Ordered the "right" part according to the diagram. The part I received was about 1/4" too long so I couldn't use the whole manifold. Took the rubber end off and - fortunately- it fit the old manifold. Dishwasher works fine now. Wish I could have ordered just the rubber valves.
