Question and Answers

Q:

Own a Maytag Dishwasher (Model #DWU8260AAX). Upper rack does not pull out smoothly; seems to stick and is squeeky. DWU8260AAX Maytag Maytag dishwasher

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issue you're having with the upper rack rolling and the noise it's causing. 

I have seen instances where the upper rack rollers have been lubricated with vegetable oil. Pull the rack out and scrub the rollers with a brush in warm soapy water to remove any mineral deposits. You can then spray the rollers with vegetable oil while spinning them so it coats the shaft or spindle as well. Wipe off any excess of vegetable oil. Make sure the track is wiped off and clean. 

Put the assembly back together and check operation. It should be a big improvement. 

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.
