Having problems with your Whirlpool Dishwashers ?

Runs and cycles, but no water is dispensed - Whirlpool Dishwashers


Answers :

Hi Jmaher300,
\015\012
\015\012If you are certain that there is water present to the dishwasher then you may have an inlet valve problem where it is not opening to allow water into the system. Try disabling power to the dishwasher for a few minutes and then return power to it. Sometimes a power cycle will reset the control logic that activates that valve and it will begin working again.. If that doesn't work then you may have go thru additional fault diagnosis to determine the root cause. If that is the case, and depending on your skills... you may be best served by calling in an appliacce repair man... Hope the power reset solves your problem...

My WHirlpool dishwasher won't drain - basin is full of water. Machine starts and runs the drain cycle, but something is clogged. I opened up the bottom, and pulled off the drain hose to the disposal, and that had no water in it, so the clog is somewhere before the water gets to the hose. If I run the dishwasher drain cycle, it is not pumping water into the hose. What next?


The clog could be in the hose,or on up in the mouth of the drain,air pressure might dislodge the clog,or dissasible of the drain pan in the machine. ... Dishwashers

Our Whirlpool KUDP01ILBS2 dishwasher isn't working like it used to. Dishes seem to be getting partially clean, they aren't getting dry at all and it seems they may be being rinsed/washed with dirty water. There is plenty of water in the machine when I interupt the cleaning cycle. I always run the hot water in the sink before I start the dishwasher so the first water into the dishwasher is as hot as possible. Also the sani-rinse light is flashing when the cycle "completes".

Excessive foaming when using Rinse Only Cycle in Kitchenaid Dishwasher. I've had this dishwasher only 3 weeks. There is no detergent in the dispenser. Rinse Cycle should be only water; no soap. Rinse Aid should not be dispensing either. What could be the problem? Normal wash cycle leaves residue on glassware. That is why I run the Rinse Only Cycle. I have done this over and over with the same results? HELP!!!

Kenmore dishwasher My Kenmore dishwasher model 630.16302401 is not successfully completing wash cycle. When I hit "normal" and turn it on, water enters the d/w, and the sprayers (both top and bottom), spray water. Approx. 10 mins. later, the water is drained. At that point, it appears that water never again enters the d/w to complete the wash cycle. In fact, the soap in the dispenser does get released, and the door opens.

I have a brand new whirlpool DU1055XTV5 dishwasher, installed two days ago. After the cycle completes there is about 1/2" clean standing water left in the bottom. It is not just down in the well area, the whole bottom is covered with water. This is after running a normal cycle with no other options such as sanitize or heat dry. I called Lowes, the store that sold/installed it, and they said this is normal in new dishwashers to keep the parts wet. They said as long as the water does reach th

It appears that the dishwasher is not getting enough water.

Have tried both powder and liquid detergents. Ran a sani clean cycle with the Jet Dry product for dishwasher used in the rural. I also run the hot water in the sink prior to starting the dishwasher to ensure the water is hot when it comes into the dishwasher. The detergent

I have a Miele G868 dishwasher. It is 15 yrs old. 8 months ago the soap dispenser wouldn't close, so I got another dispenser from Miele and replaced it myself. Everything worked fine until 3 months later, when the soap dispenser did not open. After 3 restarts, it began to function as it should. Now 5 months later, the soap dispenser is not opening at all. Here are my observations: 1. Economy wash cycle should run 35 minutes but only runs 13 now. 2. Water in machine is not hot, even though I run

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 DU810SWLQ0 that will not drain. I've pulled the unit out, snaked the drain tube, pulled the motor/pump, and pipe assemblies, and cleaned the food trap, which I also removed. I've run the dishwasher with a bit of bleach, and the water will pump in, get processed by the agitator, and be heated. When the rinse cycle comes, dishes get covered in food, and are never clean. Waste water was being used for a clean rinse. I've run the dishwasher with the drain dangling in a bucket,

I have no power to the dishwasher. I tried the circuit breaker, flipped it. No lights on, nothing. It must have been running when the power might have gone off, may be the power surged or something and it wasn't able to finish running the cycle.

We have a Whirlpool ADP962 Dishwasher that will not fill. I replaced the inlet hose as I thought the solenoid was faulty. It's gone a step further and now sounds like it fills (continuously) however it soon drains without any water entering the dishwashing compartment (this remains dry). I believe this issue was caused by running it through a cycle without the water mains turned on. Any ideas?

Bought a Whirlpool Energy Star-rated DU1055XTVS0 four months ago. Have had intermittent problems with the water not running during the cycle. Have read instructions, done the trouble-shooting, etc. Even when the water runs, very often the dishwasher tablets don't totally dissolve. (And the tablets work better than liquid and Jet Dry -- I've had etching problems using that combo.) Very disappointed with this product so far.

Lately the soap remains in the dispenser, dried and caked in (I have to dig it out with a sharp object, as it becomes a solid piece). I have also tried gel soaps, but find them in the bottom of the dishwasher, partially intact. The mistery is this does not happen all the time, but most of the time! I've checked the water pressure and the water temperature: both seem to be fine. The dishwasher does run a full cycle. Is it time to buy a new one? Would you also be able to tell me what year this mod
