Having problems with your Whirlpool Dishwashers ?

Whirlpool model GU1200XTLS3 - water doesn't flow in properly unless i put in a pitcher or 2 of water. In the initial sensing/fill process and during rinse, i have to pour in pitchers of water, then water flows in as it should.


Answers :

Possible that the inlet valve , the level sensors are faulty, Most likely that the water level sensors are not reacting and cutting off the inlet valve unless the water level pressure comes in with the addition of the water into the chamber.
\015\012You must check the pressure switch of the level sensor, the connections to the program sensor , remove and flush the inlet valve from all dirt and reset.

The problem is in the water inlet system. See this diagram.
\015\012
\015\012My opinion is the float system is playing up. This is stuck in dry condition and tells the controller it is full. So it stops taking water. But when you pour water manually, it frees up and start working normally which means the water inlet valve lets water in.
\015\012
\015\012You may have to replace the float or press it a few times to ease the sticky spring.

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,

Slow drain. My dishwasher is draining, but not enough to empty the water out after a normal cycle. This is also causing the rinse cycle to use recycled dirty water in the process. I've check the lines and there are no blockages there. Inside the dishwasher are 2 little white balls...where is the exact position they should be placed? Could this be blocking some of the draining process?

My dishwasher was moved for kitchen rennovations. When hooked back up again it would not fill up. It will run through a cycle but no water enters. If I squeeze the rubber hose that leads from the electronic valve to the tub it gets hot indicating that I am forcing hot water through the line. If I pour water into the tub it will wash the dishes but at the final 6 minute point it will go no further, I assume because it is not getting rinse water.

Mod #: MDB6600AWB Ser #: 16505148CG No water comes out of spray arms, checked and cleaned filter-OK. Wash impeller is cracked where it slides onto the hexagon rod but it you take the filter flow plate off and put the impeller back on, when you put the unit on rinse only and quickly open the door you can see it is still turning and moving the water. The unit still fills and drains. it just does not have enough force with the impeller to force the water into the spray arms.

I have a three-year-old Sears Kenmore Elite dishwasher. I find that despite the fact that we scrape and rinse our dishes before loading the machine, after each three months of use (two loads a day) or so, I have to take the machine apart (spray tower, racks, bottom impeller, bottom screen housing, food grinder cover) and clean-out the food grinder area, for it fills-up with sludge. The sludge restricts the water flow and there isn't enough flow to turn the impellers via that steering jets.

My GSD5940Do1ss leaks from what appears to be a tube that is in the middle left of the underside. There are no leaks from the hoses or pumps. It only leaks when it is adding water during the wash or rinse cycle. The part it is leaking from looks like a plastic tube that is part of the tub enclosure. There are four of them and I think they are really the mounting guides for the tub enclosure, which means the water is probably flowing down the tub to this spot. I'm assuming that means my seal arou
