(54)Glasses rack for dishwasher


(57) A glasses rack (20C) for a dishwasher may be configured to hold glasses in an inclined position. The glasses may be inclined at a predetermined angle relative to horizontal to allow draining of treating liquid from the glasses yet achieve a reduced overall height of the dish rack relative to a conventional dish rack. A bottom wall (66C) of the dish rack may be inclined at an angle that matches an effective inclination angle of an upper, tiered dish rack (22C), and the bottom wall inclination angle may correspond to the glasses inclination angle. A sprayer (90C) may be mounted to the dish rack (20C) and arranged to spray treating liquid into the interior of the glasses.
