United States Patent 3,167,183 DISH lBASKET AND UP RACK STRUCTURE FUR A DISHWASHER Jack W. Qlaywell and tanley 0. Peterson, Wisconsin Rapids, Wis, assignors to Preway 11163., a corporation of Wisconsin Filed July 6, 1962, Ser. No. M7 304 2 Claims. ((Il. 211-71) This invention relates to a dishwasher and more particularly to a dish basket and cup rack structure therefor.

An object of this invention is to provide new and improved structure for holding dishes, cups, glasses, and

the like during washing and drying thereof in a dishwasher.

Another object of the invention is to provide in a dishwasher in which a water spray is circulated from the sides of the dishwashser tub by spray arms, a basket with a dish holding structure which holds dishes in a generally vertical position and angled relative to the sides of the dishwasher so that sprayed water impinges on all surfaces of the dishes and one dish does not interfere with the flow of water to another.

A further object of the invention is to provide a cup rack supportable on the dish basket which has a plurality of holders spaced along the length thereof with each holder having an upwardly extending rod with an upward bend intermediate the length thereof to engage within a glass and hold the glass by two-point engagement therewith so as to limit the glass surface on which water might be retained and in which each holder has a locking member to engage Within a cup supported on end to firmly hold the cup in position generally facing the emitted water spray of a dishwasher.

Another object of the invention is to provide a dishwasher having a tub with side walls in which a dish basket is mounted with means for holding dishes in a generally vertical position and angled relative to the walls to face a water spray emitted from spray arms mounted on the side walls and one or more cup racks supportable either at the sides of the basket or positionable within the interior of the basket and supported from the front and rear of the basket to hold cups and glasses facing the Water spray.

Further objects and advantages will become apparent from the following detailed description taken in connection with the accompanying drawings in which:

FIG. 1 is a perspective elevational view of the dishwasher with the front door opened to show the dish basket and cup rack structure therewithin and in association with a water spray arm;

FIG. 2 is a vertical section on an enlarged scale taken generally along the line 2-2 in FIG. 1;

FIG. 3 is a vertical section taken along the line 33 I in FIG. 2;

FIG. 4 is a fragmentary plan view of the front end of one of the baskets; and

PEG. 5 is a fragmentmy perspective view of a cup rack.

While this invention is susceptible of embodiment in many different forms, there is shown in the drawings and will herein be escribed in detail an embodiment of the invention with the understanding that the present dis closure is to be considered as an exemplification of the principles of the invention and is not intended to limit the invention to the embodiment illustrated. The scope of the invention will be pointed out in the appended claims.

As shown in the drawings, the dishwasher comprises a casing indicated generally at with a front opening door 11 and having a top wall 12 and side walls 13 and 14. Located within the cabinet is a tub having side walls 15 and 16, a top Wall 17 and a bottom wall 18 3,167,183 Patented Jan. 26, 1965 The door 11 constitutes a closure for the front of,

the tub and the back is closed by a wall 21.

Water is circulated within the tub by means of a pair of rotatable spray arms 22 and 23 mounted on walls 15 and 16 respectively. Each of these arms receives water pumped from the sump througfh conduits as disclosed in the application previously referred to. The water is emitted through nozzles 24 formed in the spray arms so that a water spray emits from each arm toward the center of the tub. The arms are caused to rotate about the bearings 25 and 26 due to the action of the water emitted therefrom.

The dishwasher has a pair of dish baskets indicated generally at 39 and 31 for upper and lower baskets, respectively, with each of the baskets being mounted for movement to a loading and unloading position overlying the open door 11. The dish basket and cup rack structure disclosed herein are equally useful with a portable dishwasher openable from the top and the disclosure of a front opening dishwasher is not intended to limit the invention contained herein, but is only for illustrative purposes.

The upper basket 31) has rollers 32 mounted in association with a track structure 33 at each side of the tub for withdrawal and the lower basket 31 has rollers 34 at the sides thereof for engagement with a track structure 35 located at each side of the tub for coaction in a known manner.

Each of the dish baskets 30 and 31 is of generally the same construction except for the different mounting for movement and description of the basket 30 is be lieved adequate to describe both baskets. The basket is formed of elongate material in the form of wire lengths which are suitably coated with a plastisol with a pair of wire lengths 49 and 41 defining a front of the basket and a second pair of wire lengths 42 and 43 forming a rear wall of the basket. Each side of the basket is similar, with one side being shown in FIG. 3 and having lengths 44 and 45 connected by vertical sections 46, 47 and 43 defining an open side through which the water spray can readily pass. The bottom of the basket is formed by four sets of wire lengths 5t 51, 52 and 53 which run from front to rear of the basket and are Welded to the front and rear wire lengths 41 and 43.

Means are provided for holding dishes in the basket including a series of curved wire lengths such as lengths 54, 55 and 56 spaced from front to rear of the basket which are curved in the plane of the bottom. Each of these wire lengths supports a plurality of loops S7, 58, 59 and a spaced along the length thereof to engage both the front and rear of a dish and support the dish in a generally vertical position and angled relative to the side walls of the dishwasher to expose all surfaces of the dish to the water spray emitted from the spray arms. By the term dishes is meant not only dishes having depth, but also relatively shallow members such as plates and the like. As will be noted in FIG. 3, the spacing between the curved wire lengths 54-56 is greater toward the rear of the basket to provide for holding a variety of dishes of differing depths.

A plurality of cup racks are provided for holding cups, glasses, and the like with the cup rack being shown in perspective in PEG. 5 embodying an elongate base member 63* to which a plurality of holders 61, 62 and 63 are secured. Each of these holders has a generally vertical a l 7 r 3,167,183

- y Section G4 which is secured to' the base member 60 as by welding and anputwardly angled rod portion 65 having; an

inner section 66 and an outer "section 67 at an increased angle to engage within a glass as shown inFIG. 2 and provide two-point engagement-withflthe glass which r e 1' with the lengths at frontand rear being notched, a cup rack including anelongate base member, a pairof hooks adjacent the ends of the basemember to engage a wire length at a side of thevbasket, a pair of downturned ends duce'sto a minimumfthe' possible area which could retain water after the glassesare dried. -The,ver tical section 64 of a holder is providediwith a U-shaped protrusion 68;en-: g'age'able withina cup positioned onend on the inner secti'on, 6610f, a holder to secure a cup in position .facing the water spray'without anypossibility offthe cup beingforc'ed off the holder by the spray, The-spacingof this locking member protru'son is designed to eii'gage the. inner surface of the cup walljwhen'the cup rests on end on the holder section '66.. a h a The cup, rackmay be supported in alternate positions either on the. side of a basket or intermediate the sides of the basket by support from the front and rear thereof. Asfshown in association with the lower basket 31in FIG. 2, the cup rack is mountedvona side of the basket This on said, base member to hold the cup rack in alternate position resting inv said notches, a plurality'of holders secured spacedvrelation .on said basemember, each holder being int egrally formedwith a generally vertically extending section secured; to the base member and an outwardly extending rod portion: with an inner section at an angle to the, verticalsection andan outer portion of the rod being at an angle tofithe' inner section toengage within a glass, and a protrusion formed on the vertical section above theinner section. of the rod to engage Within; acup resting on end on said inner section; I

2. A dishwasher basketand cup rack combination, comprising, 'a basket formed of elongate material with lengths V thereofexte'nding along the'front, rear and sides thereof,

is accomplished byhaving the front and rear holder, of a the cup rack formed'with 21 11001970 formed attheupper end thereof which engages the top Wire member 440i a basket. The cup raek is held in. supported position by engagement ofa brace rod 71 secured theretowith the vertical sections 46, 47: and- 480i a basket side.

Arr. alternate position is shown for the cup rackin associa'tion with the upper basket 30 in FIG. 2 in which the basemember 66 of the basket rests in notches 75 formed in the; front and rear wire members 40 and 42respectivelywith the brace member 7 1engaging a series of plate engagingloops '59 to holdthe cup rack in upright I position. T hebase member 60 has its ends turned down as ind-icatedat 7 6. to limit rnovementof the cup rack from mm to rear. relative. to the dish basket.

In these various alternate positions of the 'cup rack it I will be seen that cups and glasses are always supported facing the water spray and areheld in an inclined posi-,

tion to make sure thatno moisture is retained within the vessel. This assures proper dryingof the cups and glasses by the dishwasher. I V i We claim:
