Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Whirlpool chopper blade completely inaccessible

\015 I would love SO VERY much to be able to even check the ''chopper blade'' for my whirlpool quiet partner gold dishwasher (which no longer cleans the top rack).However, every site in the world gives the most nonsensical instructions which usually include a magic middle part that is never specified. Like: ''remove the screws, move that thing out of the way, then..... a few other things we can't describe but we'll give you these spec sheets which in no way describe the process nor even match what you have'' and then voila you can check the chopper blade.Is there anyone capable of giving step by step, logical, simple instructions on how to disassemble what should be a straightforward mechanical assembly short of removing the entire machine and throwing it off of a balcony?Please?I've removed the arm. I've unscrewed the 800000000 completely unnecessary over-kill star screws that held the first bit of the contraption down. Then.... no visible screws, no nothing. It's just a giant lump of ridiculous nonsense that cannot be disassembled by anyone. At this point, on every message board, people magically find the chopper blade by just lifting out something. THERES NOTHING THAT CAN BE LIFTED BY ANYONE ANYWHERE!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT THE HELL??????I'm assuming someone somewhere with a sense of logic designed the thing? ahhahahahahahahaha. Someone somewhere with a sense of logic must know how to DISASSEMBLE this nightmare.HELP ME BEFORE I TAKE A GIANT SLEDGEHAMMER TO THE THING. And please, for the love of all that is holy in the universe, do not link me to some ridiculous picture of the parts that in no way describes how they're held together. I've seen those. They might as well say that magic fairies live in there and hold all the parts together with their loving kindness. Because they show no screws, no directions for removing anything.... just a breakout of parts that nobody can access.I have lost my mind. I am ready to become a violent sociopathic mass murderer.\015

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.

My Maytag MDBH965AWW Legacy Series 300 is making a loud grinding noise. I took off the lower spray arm and other parts below it to see if something was lodged near the chopper blade. What I found was broken plastic pieces from the bottom of the filter/flowplate assembly. It appears that the chopper blade is coming in contact with the filter/flowplate assembly and therefore the chopper blade is chopping away at the bottom of the filter/flowplate assembly. What do you think the problem is? Ho

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

My sound conditioned Whirlpool dishwasher is real old. It fills up completely with water. It looks like it will overflow, so I stop it. I thought it always started washing from the start. Do they always fill completely up with water, then start washing. I never noticed. I am afraid the water will overflow. Can it? Last time I ran this, it had a real loud motor. I used to hear the motor running from the start, but now I don't, just water filling up to what looks like overflow if I let it. I baile

Whirlpool DU1101 Hello, My Whirlpool DU1100 is only 1 year old. The dishes are dirtu and the soap doesn't disolve completely My husband is convinvced it is low water pressure, primarily from a leak in the sprinkler system in the park behind our house. I think it is just a clog of some kind preventing the water from getting into the dishwasher fill and/or spray arms. The maunual says you need 20 120 PS to run the dishwasher I doubt it is below 20 PS because of a leak in the park. Is there anyway
