I have a brand new whirlpool DU1055XTV5 dishwasher, installed two days ago. After the cycle completes there is about 1/2" clean standing water left in the bottom. It is not just down in the well area, the whole bottom is covered with water. This is after running a normal cycle with no other options such as sanitize or heat dry. I called Lowes, the store that sold/installed it, and they said this is normal in new dishwashers to keep the parts wet. They said as long as the water does reach th

My Professional series dishwasher does not work properly. It is only 1.5 years old and glasses on top rack get sprayed with fine layer of particles every time I use it. Other items, top and bottom, are often not clean as well, but glasses are the hardest to re-clean. I have tried evacuating the water left at the bottom of the dishwasher before running, pre-running the hot water in the sink and ensuring that the disposal was run, removing and cleaning the filter at the bottom of the washer.

My KichenAid KUDS011 has functioned well until this morning. When I push any of the buttons on the keypad, nothing happens. I noticed there is still water in the bottom of the dishwasher from the last dish washing. Also, I've heard there is a screen or similar part in the bottom of the dishwasher that needs to be cleaned occasionally. I haven't figured out how to remove the bottom center of the dishwasher to access this for cleaning.


If the drain or screen are clogged, the machine may no operate.Unscrew the the 2 long screws on bottom, remove the basket, there may be a flapper under the basket, For pics, see here: http://www.contractorssolutions.com/dishwashers. ... Dishwashers

Dishwasher: Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner. Has worked fine until had a house plumbing blockage which made water pool in the bottom of the dishwasher as well as kitchen sink. Tried to get it to drain at first using keypad. Drain light clicked on and then off because there was nowhere for water to do. Manually emptied most of the water, then "Cancel/Drain" worked if I held it down quite a while. House plumbing is now fixed. However the keypad only works sporadically now. Some buttons do so

I stopped using my dishwaser because it left crusted on food particals even tho I rinced them well(so I thought) before loading. It was as if they were just being dried crusty. After a couple month I noticed a bad smell. I looked in the dishwasher to find standing water in the bottom. I ran a little CLR through and it cleared out. But a couple weeks later again there was water in the bottom. It seems as if the water from the sink is draining into the washer. If I run it it runs thru just fine, n

Cycle begins and we can hear water filling up, but the arm doesn't spin, and water isn't being "sprayed" around the washer. We can hear the dishwasher "clicking" throughout the cycle, but nothing else is happening, and about 10 minutes through the cycle water just comes pouring out the bottom of the door. There is a bit of a burning smell as well.

KUDS30 leaking my kitchenaid dishwasher (about 1 1/2 years old) had a leak bottom left side and had gasket replaced. It worked well for approx another 6-9 months without any leaks and now the same problem is back. The dishwasher isn't overloaded. A repair person came last week and ran the dishwasher empty and it didn't leak when she was here. The 2 loads after continue to leak approx 2 cups of water each cycle.
