I am allways amused that people have problems w/ all manner of things and never just modify the thing ! FIX IT ! eg cars, dishwashers office chairs! ( my office chair was top heavy so I took the old brake disc fr the wifes car, sanded, painted it put it on the bottom of the chair base voila' lower center of gravity and not so many tip overs! ) I think the bottom rack issue could be fixed by altering the wheels /track so it would not come off ! and you could ballast weight the rack w/ stainless steel pieces of metal wired in w/ stainless steel safety wire ! as I was told by the salesmen the racks are changeable? and you could bend, cut off (and re-seal the edges ) prongs so there was more room for whatever! The same skills I use to modify, improve every vehicle I've ever owned can transfer to all appliances too ! as far as the filter ? can you just fit a larger hole size screen? guys have sure done it to the oil pickup assy on the Saab! Are we talking simple fabrication skills eh? Boy am I sorry for the younger generation that never got to take shop class!,Auto shop, metal shop, machine shop I had wonderfull shop class teachers that taught us to think outside the box and we would fix REAL issues like this! our parents were amazed! we felt useful and wise and it inculcated, empowered in us a lifelong ability to modify, repair, improve everything in our lives! these classes should be REQUIRED! I was considered an odd fish as I, son of a Doctor, Honors society, obviously, college material, insisted in taking all these too!
