How to Keep the Basket Washer from Popping Out
If your basket washer, keeps coming out, push up on the outsides and down on the center when closing the lid.
Sometimes the reason that the basket washer keeps falling out is due to the stiffness of the hinge pins on brand new Ions. Because there is less play in new hinge pins, the rear edge of the basket can touch the rear edge of the basket washer and pop the washer out.
To close the lid without the washer popping out, push down on the wide center of the hinge that is attached the Ion itself with your thumb and pull up on the two narrow outside parts of the hinge that are attached to the lid with two of your fingers. As you are doing this, gently close the lid. As the hinge pins wear, this problem typical resolves itself.
