I have a KitchenAid dishwasher - KUDM01TJBS0 with a broken

Customer Question

I have a KitchenAid dishwasher - KUDM01TJBS0 with a broken tine row. The original part number is(###) ###-#### When trying to order, it says there is a "guaranteed to fit" manufacturers replacement part(###) ###-####- this does not fit as the spacing of the tines does not allow the placement of the tine clips to secure it to the basket. People say, "It's the approved part, it should fit." It doesn't. Any suggestions?
Thanks,

The recommended one, the "guaranteed to fit"(###) ###-####one that I received when I previously ordered a replacement and the clips don't fit because the spacing on the tines is different that the(###) ###-####and the spacing relationship between the bars on the upper rack, the clips, and the bar on the tine bar don't give enough space for the clips to fit. If you compare the one I'm replacing with the(###) ###-#### ***** notice that there is not enough space on the ends to attach a clip, and the spacing of the tines is way different. I already knew which one is "recommended," the issue is that the(###) ###-####doesn't seem to fit, or I'm not smart enough to figure out how to make the clips work.

The link above is to the(###) ###-#### ***** one that it calls for, not the(###) ###-####

The tine row displayed on the site you sent is, indeed, listed as part number(###) ###-#### ***** it is actually the(###) ###-####- it is different than the picture I sent you. I already ordered it this way, received the part noted in the website you sent me, and can't make it fit with the clips and the original upper rack. Sorry this sounds frustrated - it is.

Ok I can show you how it goes on if you have the new tine rack do you have a picture of the upper rack and do you at least know where it went in the rack?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I sent the tine row back a week ago because nobody could tell me how to make things fit. If you can tell me how to make it fit I will order another one. The tine row goes down the left side as you face the dishwasher. I tried different positions for the clip and couldn't get them to fit.
