Thank You for Submitting your question to ManageMyLife.com

I can understand your concern with the basket numbers being different. After reviewing both part numbers I'm just showing a small difference in color. 8562043 is a darker grey than the 8531288. So it is safe to order either part. Both will work just fine with your model.

upper rack area cleaning ? KUDS01FLSS3 Kitchenaid Dishwasher
by Manage My Life

Dirty dishes coming out of the dishwasher would be unacceptable. First make sure the upper spray arm is not blocked and moves freely.



There are two things needed to clean the dishes well. There must be enough water and the water should be hot. The water level is normally just below the element. The water should be close to 135 degrees. You can check the water level and water temperature in the wash and final rinse cycle.



Check the upper spray arm for cracks or splits. Make sure that the upper rack is pushed all of the way in before starting a cycle so that the manifold will dock properly to provide spray to the upper arm. If there is any hard mineral buildup on the spray arms, soaking in some white vinegar can help clear it away.



Place a cup in each corner of the upper rack. Start a cycle and let it fill with water. After a minute or so of washing open the door and check the cups. Each should have an identical amount.



If there seems to be less water, then try moving the rack to a different level. The feed tub up the back wall has two docking ports, one for the top rack upper position and one for the top rack lower position. When one is in use the other should be blocked off.



The sump and pump housing should be cleaned and checked for debris or detergent buildup.  Either can limit water pressure through the water tube and spray arms. Use the image below and this

can help check the drain and recirculating pump.

If parts replacement is needed, I do recommend having a technician make the repairs. This

I know that it can be very frustrating when you can't find the parts that you need. It looks like the manufacture has stopped producing this type of part completely, so I was not able to find a substitute part for them. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

The new rack should fit once you install the wheel assembly. The following link of a previous answer provides some instructions for a similar bottom rack installation in the third image:

The basket pictured is the one I received. It is too wide for the rack but has the same dimensions as the old basket. The old basket will not fit the new rack either. Your advice is appreciated.

Why is only the bottom rack getting clean in my KitchenAid Superba dishwasher model KUDS01IJBL0?

Check the upper spray arm for cracks or splits. Make sure that the upper rack is pushed all of the way in before starting a cycle so that the manifold will dock properly to provide spray to the upper arm.

You could have debris stuck in the chopper blade area of the sump or a problem with the drain check valve that is causing your dishwasher to not clean well. I provided an image below that shows how to access this area of the dishwasher sump. Your dishwasher will look slightly different but the basic procedure is the same. Access the chopper blade area and check for a foreign object or debris that could be clogging the sump area. Check the drain check valve to make sure that it is operating properly. This will likely solve your problem.

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.

I need detailed info on part #8268735. It's one of three parts in the top rack of my kitchenaid dishwasher
by Manage My Life 
August 3rd, 2011

I don't have detailed information about those components beyond the parts diagram (shown below). I suspect that you have already seen that drawing. The adjuster housing (KEY 2) should have clips or holes that the retaining pins (KEY 15) stick securely into . I recommend that you order a new adjuster housing (KEY 2 - part 8268735) and see if that fixes your problem. You will need to rely on your personal observation of the components to determine how to assembly them. You may be able to see how they fit together by looking at the assembly on the other side of the rack.

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will try to assist you further. If you can send us some digital pictures of the problem, we may be able to provide additional help.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:

The best way would be to take a picture of the existing rack.  The tine row and adjusted clip onto the rack.  The iamges below of a similar rack may be helpful.
