Hi,
\015\012 Remove each spray arm and check it is clear of food particlesat the jets. The next problem may occour at the rotating joint . If the seal is not good, you can loose a lot of water out of this point.. If both of these seem reasonable, then yes the circulation pump may need checking. First check for any debris in the impeller, and that it is not worn or damaged, and that it is attached to the motor or the coupling is still good. If these are ok, then the motors='s capacitor may be faulty - causing it to buzz more than normal usually, and it looses efficiency, getting hot in the process.

Noticed dishes on top shelf not entirely clean. Ran machine empty and opened many times during wash. Noticed that Lower Spray Arm works as expected, but Middle Spray Arm turns only 1/8 or less, then Lower Arm spins again. Schematic with Use and Care manual just says pump motor switches from one to the other in certain cycles, but I don't see this happening. Looked for obstructions to water flow and pressure seems normal. Is control for this function part of the pump, or in the control panel?

The dishwaasher was not cleaning. the top and middle spray bars seemed starved of water. I removed the lower spinner and covers until I got to the pump cover and can't see how to remove the cover.

Whirlpool dishwasher top spinner and top rack spinner is not putting out water or very little and not spinning.

Is the Pump or Motor done? how can that be it's less than 5 years old? Its a Whirlpool Quiet Partner I Model DU1055XTPQ3


First, confirm that the holes are not blocked on these arms. (I did not want to assume you have done this.)Then check the impeller on top of the motor stem for being loose or worn/damaged - to rule the impeller out. If it is fine, then ... Whirlpool 24 in. DU1055XTP Built-in Dishwasher

Whirlpool Gold Dishwasher - GU2700XTSB The top rack of the dishwasher is not cleaning. The bottom rack dishes clean fine. There are no clogs in either the bottom or top spinner arms, the plastic tube feeding water from the bottom pump to the top rack spinner arm is clean, the spinner arms all rotate freely and do not bind. Water pressure is correct and water temperature is correct. There are no lime or hardwater deposits or clogs. What could be the issue?

Problem with AEG 24in Favorit 40630 Free-Standing Dishwasher When I'm turn on the machine the top and middle signal light are flashing and the pump working for some time and stop.

The unit goes through its cycles but the top rack is not getting clean. The bottom spray wheel works, the middle and top spray arms are getting water but it seems not enough to make them rotate. The pump screens are clear and there seems to be enough water. Whats going on?


The problem is likely to be that the jets in the rotor arm are blocked.\012\012To check this, remove the arm (it is easy to do, as it is intended for the user to do this) and clean out all the holes. Try running water from you tap through ... Dishwashers

We have a Fisher& Paykel dishwasher with 2 drawers -- one on top of the other. Model DD603. The bottom drawer works fine. But the top drawer is not working properly -- it repeatedly stops in the middle of the cycle and there is water left in the drawer. Previously when this happened, we called a repairman; he removed the top drawer from the machine, said it was "off track", flipped some lever, and put the drawer back. He seemed a little embarrassed by having to charge for a service call for

I have a Whirlpool DUL300XTLQ3 Queit Partner III. The cleaning blades stopped moving-started it-waited awhile-opened it-the blades were in the same position. Took the bottom blade+filter cover off. Then I held down the metal piece on the case and switched on the micro switch on the door to see it running with the door open. The water shot straight up about 4-5" that's it. This does not seem to be enough pressure for the water to get all the way up to the top spinner. Am I looking at a new pump


If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. Thiscould be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (locatedunder the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at thebottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, ... Whirlpool Dishwashers

We are getting a grit on the dishes on the top rack. We have done many things to solve the problem. Running tang crystles, runing CLR through it, taking it apart to check for blockages, checking the impeller on the pump, blowing comprssed air through it, scrubbing the inside many times. The funny thing is it only happens about every third wash cycle or so. The upper spray arm is free with no obstruction. The dishes on the bottom rack are clean. We use Electosol and jet dry. Our water is softened

Water stopped pumping so ordered new pump. Upon removing the old I discovered it had a few straws twisted up into the pump. Removed and reinstalled pump and it sounds great and throws water all over with force. PROBLEM: Now there is ZERO water coming through top tube to spray arm. Pulled pump back off and noticed what seems to be a "white diverter ball" that moves a little in front of the inlet for the upper water tube. Any guidance to where the ball should be prior to installing the pump

I have the two drawer dishwasher. It's about 10 years old. The top drawer continues to work OK but for the last three attempts when I run the bottom drawer water gets out into the drip pan below and gives the F1 signal. I can dry the drip pan out and clear the F1 signal so the top drawer works. But running the bottom drawer causes water to leak again with the resultant F1 signal. There is very little water in the bottom drawer (just a little in the filter bowl) so I think the pump is pumping

No water pressure coming out while ingine is running. hoses/ attachments not clog. Pulled and opened pump, didn't see anything broken although noticed pump was filled with oil/lubricant but about 1/4" below top surface. Is it suppose to be filled to the top? What kind of oil is used on the pump? And how come there's no water pressure coming out while the motor is running and handle trigger engaged?

Hello, I have a Kitchen Aid (model # KUDMO1T JWHO) dishwasher that runs the motor in all cycles, with water fill & drain working fine, but the pump is not pumping water during any cycle, as the spinners and the inside of the washer are dry when I open the door, except for the water sitting in the bottom. Also, no normal swishing sound of water when the motor runs in any cycle. Looks to me like a mechanical break in the pump drive. How do I check the pump drive on this model? Do you have any
