That is a lot of bother and shipping costs. I have a Kenmore ultra wash series 17777990; FJ4303607; Model 665 : F or E71195. I obtained the numbers from the side of the door of the washer. The lower rack has an indentation on the lower right side of the rack to allow the detergent door to pop open during the second wash. I purchased a spray can to put on the rack, but it just came off in the first wash. I purchased from Sears a bottle of FSP 676453 viny touch up paint. Will this work? No directions came with the bottle.l

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes, if it possible>

The touch up bottles of vinyl are not typically very successful, especially if the rust is more than slight. The lower rack for your model is available below. Is this the one you have been receiving that did not work?

The rack you showed me is the same one that Kenmore sent me 3 times. The rack does not have enough indentation on the bottom right side to allow the degetergent door to open in the wash cycle.

Hmm, can you post a picture of your rack?
