Whirlpool quiet partner II top rack sprayer doesnt work


Answers :

The top rack spray arm doesn't work because of low water pressure from the wash motor or it's clogged with debris.
If the top spray arm looks clear of debris, remove the lower spray arm and lower feed tube to\015\012access the wash motor. Remove the 4 torx screws and the filter\015\012(accumulator assembly). Remove the torx screw and the inlet protector\015\012that covers the chopper assembly. Make sure the chopper is not broken\015\012(broken chopper will fill with debris and block water flow). While\015\012holding the chopper blade, reach inside the "D" shaped opening on top\015\012of the motor and spin the wheel/motor by hand in each direction to make\015\012sure either the chopper gear or the motor gear that drives the chopper\015\012is not broken. Replace the chopper if necessary (part # 8268383). If\015\012the motor gear is broken, replace the sump and motor assembly (part #\015\0128535150). Remove any debris from the sump area in the process.
You\015\012don't have to shut the power off to the dishwasher because the door will be open, but if you feel more\015\012comfortable, do so.
Good luck!

I have a Whirlpool Quiet Partner II model DU1100XTPQ7. The top rack is not clean after the dishwasher runs. We cleaned both sprayers with pipe cleaner & ran water through the lower sprayer with a hose. Then we let the dishwasher soak overnight with a gallon of vinegar in it. After running that through a cycle, we still see no improvement. We do have very hard water here; I add 1/2 cup of vinegar to every load. Any suggestions? Heather

I have a Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner III that is 8 years old and recently stopped cleaning top rack dishes. I remember finding a mylar like piece in the bottom of the tub and threw it away thinking it came off of something we washed (I know, bad thinking.) The mylar piece measured roughly 3-4inx2in and was folded in half. Anyways....the upper arm does not spin and the detergent doesnt get fully dispensed so dishes dont get fully cleaned. I am guessing not enough water pressure to upper arm. Wou

I have a whirlpool gold dishwasher model Quiet Partner 3. The top rack is not cleaning the dishes very well. We live in the country and have hard water. I am wondering if there could be a buildup of some sort inside the water arm and causing it to block some of the water. I am wondering if I could put something like C L R in the washing cycle to loosen up the buildup. Do you have any other ideas.


If it is just affecting the upper rack i doubt it is just a plugged spray arm (though i could be wrong). more likely than not you have a blockage on the intake of your spray pump motor. a series of bones, toothpicks, foreign material, etc could be bl ...

We have a built in GE dishwasher. It has worked fine for about 4 years but now the glasses in the top rack will not come clean. I have cleaned all the holes where the water comes out but I think the sprayer that is beneath the top rack (the one that is attached to the bottom of the top rack) is not rotating. We had someone out to take a look at it and they said it was fine. It isn't fine as it is not cleaning the dishes. Is there a reason that the bottom sprayer is not turning?
