Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

My whirlpool dishwasher soap dispenser is apparently not opening during cleaning. I find dirty dishes and clumps of soap in the hopper. Whirlpool quiet partner II


Answers :

I bet your clumps of soap began with the beginning of the use of a different DW detergent powder.

Try this (trust me) Go buy a box of brand name Dishwasher powder (e.g. Electrosol or Cascade) Use it for two loads of dishes and report your results back here. OK?


Symptoms:
\012
Dispenser lid is open. Caked powder at (what would be during normal \012operation) bottom edge of soap dispenser or caked powder fallen onto \012dishes or dishwasher bottom. There may be loose powder in rest of \012dispenser or spilled down inside door or onto dishes underneath \012dispenser.
\012
\012Solution:

\012Keep the area around the soap dispenser lid clear when loading the top tray.
\012
\012Explanation:
\012The soap dispenser needs to swing open during the wash cycle. In many \012dishwashers the top tray has an indentation as wide as the lid of the \012dispenser. This allows the top tray to be as large deep as possible \012while still allowing space for the dispenser lid to open. People often \012pack their dishwasher with things overhanging this gap.
\012
\012During the wash cycle the catch will release but the overhanging cutlery\012 or crockery prevents the lid from opening all but a few degrees. Some \012water will splash in but not enough to wash out the soap powder. The \012soap powder at the bottom of the dispenser will then cake.
\012
\012When the front door is opened the spring loaded lid, which is partly \012open, will of course swing fully open and you'll be convinced that the \012lid opened normally during operation. If this is the problem then if \012you're very careful and open the door very slowly you can actually hear \012the lid flip open. Also, depending on when the lid opens, how far it \012opened during operation and how fast you open the door you may find soap\012 powder spilled down to cover the dishes at the front or down the inside\012 of the door. This happens when you first open the door and obviously \012there couldn't be loose powder there if the powder had emerged while \012there was water washing around. Seeing the lid open as you open the door\012 is a lot harder but can be done on some machines.

I have a Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner III that is 8 years old and recently stopped cleaning top rack dishes.

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.

After the last wash I noticed the bottom of my dishwasher (Whirlpool quiet partner 2) was filled with water. After unloading the dishes I closed the dishwasher and pushed the Cancel/Drain button but the button didn't work. None of the buttons work. It's as if the dishwasher became unplugged. I looked at the nearest outlet beneath the sink, but did not find anything unplugged. I wasn't able to drag the dishwasher out of its area beneath the counter by myself and figured I better ask first be

I have a Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner III dishwasher. When I unload the "clean" dishes, there is some type of film or crud on the dishes. I have to hand wash them to get this off. It seems like a lint-type trap might be backing up and then not rinsing the dishes cleanly. Amy ideas what might be the problem? Thanks

GU2400 whirlpool gold quiet partner iii. Won't clean dishes. Dishes don't get wet. Water seems to accumulate at the bottom but no spraying sound during cycle. Cancel causes the system to drain completely. Possibly plastic utensil under the filter screen at bottom. Can't figure out how to remove it or the filter screen. Might be preventing impeller blades from rotating.
