To help me decide weather to return it before I install it, I have 2 questions; How quiet is this dishwasher without a blanket? (subjective...I know. Also can I install the blanket from the old dishwasher over this new model without adverse consequences? I tried to get these answers from Whirlpool but all they could tell me was that it doe


Answers :

Hello. I have been installing dishwashers for 35 years. Whenever the new one lacks a blanket I take the blanket off of the old unit and apply it being careful to trim it if necessary. I always use a good quality duct tape to make sure the blanket is firmly attached and that it will stay put when I slide it into place.

\015\012ANY dishwasher will be quieter with an insulating blanket. Go ahead and install it. If by chance you think it noisy you can always disconnect your fittings and return it. I doubt that you will feel a need to do that because Whirlpool engineers are pretty bright folks. Joe
DU1014XTXQ is not coming up as a valid model for whilpool.

most newer units have internal insulation that absorbs alot of the noises associated with washing. insulating it with the old washer's jacket will not harm the washer - it will just have added sound absorbing.

The real key, however is the door. If the door is not well insulated - no matter how much you stuff under the counter - the sound will radiate through the door.

Be sure the old blanket does not interfere with air flow underneath so the motor does not overheat and fail prematurely.

Thanks for using FixYa!

I am trying to replace the GUIDE RAIL BRACKET ASM on my GE dishwasher (model no. GSM1800JWW). How do I either: (a) remove the old brackets, and then install the new ones; or (b) remove the rollers from my new brackets, so that I could slip these rollers onto the old brackets still in the dishwasher, saving the trouble of removing the old brackets in the first place? Either solution would be acceptable, but right now I can't figure out how to do either one without breaking something. Thank you v

My catering boss has installed a new midi 50 but the drain is to high and it won't drain. I'm I right in thinking this is a manual drain machine without a drain pump.our old machine had a drain pump. Is there any legal height that a commercial dishwasher has to be installed off the floor in regard to health and safety. thanks.


Lower height can be a violation, higher won't be. Pumps are only used to drain in a high volume environment. Many commercial clippers and washers don't have them. ... Dishwashers

I just installed a new Whirlpool dishwasher (model DU1301XTV) and have run three loads. Each time, the glasses, silverware, and plastic, come out with white, chalky residue. There are also water spots. I have tried it with both Cascade detergent, and with a Quantum Finish tablet. I have also filled the reservoir with Jet Dry. Do I have a defective dishwasher? Do I have a clogged line?

Our Maytag dishwasher, mod MDB9150AWS, has abad lower rack due to rust and prongs coming loose. Maytag sent me a replacement BUT without the center spray tower. It looks like trouble to remove the old one and install it in the new lower rack. Any help would be appreciated.

Whirlpool dishwasher model DUB700XB has quit cycling. Fills with water but will not start wash cycle. Making intermittent humming noise unless the door is open to disengage the switch, even when on stop. No LEDs lighting when rotating the dial through the various cycles.

Just had a Bosch dishwasher installed in my new kitchen. The plumber who installed it ran it and it worked. Now we cannot get it to run. We have tried everything. Restarted several times, turned the circuit breaker off and on, changed the cycle and nothing works. The light comes on but it does not get water or run. What are we doing wrong. The dishwasher is brand new out of box but we bought it 4 years ago and remodeling was delayed. Model #SHU5314UC/U06 FD#8001


Test the door switch. It can be faulty or misaligned. You can also check the back of the unit and/or remove the rear panel and take a look at the thermal fuse. It may be bad not allowing enough current flow to operate the machine. ... Bosch SHU5316UC Dishwasher

Our GE dishwasher (5 yrs old, Model GLD4250L00CS) only fills with water half way when the unit is started. The inlet valve was replaced with a new one, but that did not solve the problem. When started, the dishwasher fill cycle runs for 41 seconds before the wash cycle begins. Repair workers told us we probably need a new ECU (Electronic Computer Unit). My questions are: Is 41 seconds the correct time for the fill cycle for our model? What else could be the reason for the unit not filling pr
