How can I reuse or recycling broken dishwater parts?

dishwasherAt the start of the year, we had an email from Matt about his parents turning old broken dishwashers into compost bins and we got thinking what else could be done with them.

Chez has just emailed to offer some further dishwasher recycling suggestions:

We recently bought a new dishwasher and the old one (which has served us well for 23 years) has been taken by the local scrap metal merchant, but before it was taken, I rescued the interior fittings.

The “drawers” are on rollers and have made excellent storage in the bottom of the wardrobe.

There were 3 removable plate racks which I am using for plate storage in my kitchen cupboards.

The removable cutlery basket is now by the computer with an assortment of pens, rulers etc in it.

Any other suggestions for the various fittings?

    My husband uses an old dishwasher plate rack that he got at a yard sale (for free) to hold LPs near his turntables.

    I plan to use old racks in drawers when I move into my new kitchen (drawers built for the racks). When we first moved into the current place and didn’t have the dishwasher hooked up or the cabinets cleaned and lined, I stored dishes in the d.w. You can store an incredible amount in a d.w. You just put multiple plates per section, etc. They’re not all spaced out for cleaning.
