Hi, I'm Daniel welcome to JustAnswer.

Sorry to hear you are having trouble with your dishwasher. Lets see if i can help you on this.

Is the new basket you have got the same as the old one or does it look different?

It looked the same apart from the runner attachment on the sides

Looking at the picture there doesnt seem to be the adjustment setting on it. So its a one setting basket.

The issue is Tecnik has gone bust so theres limited parts out there so with the basket they may just sell the one type now that doest have the hight adjustment on it,

Sorry but if thats the case then thats the only basket they sell.
