Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Where is the food trap located in my dishwasher? I am having problems with residue being left on my dishes. Dishwasher is 3 yrs old. Whirlpool Quiet Partner II.


Answers :

They are usually located on the bottom of the dishwasher on the inside, towards the back. Some of them require you to unscrew the screws to access it. It will look like a small grid, and under that is where it gets nasty. Hope this helps.

Sometimes I add more water when it grinds, then it runs very quiet. Sometimes it doesn't seem to fill enough. Water supply good, inlet screen inspected not clogged.

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


You need to check the drain system completely, look for plugged screens, pump impellers, valves and the drain hose. You need to witness a large volume of water flow during drain. ... Whirlpool Dishwashers

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

The only number on the nameplate of my Costco-purchased "Quiet Partner IV" built-in Whirlpool dishwasher (steel insides) is 8575637. This dishwasher does not clean spoons right-they always have dirt left over even after use of "Powerscour" with "Pots and Pans" button. Even the pots and pans are not always clean. This is a very poor performance.
