Removing the GE Dishwasher Top Rack

Over time, your GE dishwasher’s top dish rack may corrode and require replacement, or you may not like the loading style of the top rack. Whatever your reason for changing out your dishwasher racks, GE dishwasher dish racks are removable, and replacement racks are available for purchase. Removing the top dish rack only takes a few minutes, and removing it will allow you to replace or repair the dish rack.
