Hello,

\015\012Welcome to FixYa.
\015\012
\015\012With the symptom you`ve described ( specifically the clean lite ) this is an error of poor water circulation or a heating fault...many times manifesting in this manner but one in the same.
\015\012
\015\012The first place to look for a remedy is the sump well, wash pump area. You`ll need to remove the lower spray arm and then the filter below it.
\015\012
\015\0121 ) Remove the turbo wash tube if applicable to your model, it pulls off, i.e.
\015\012
\015\012a6dcf7f.jpg\015\012
\015\012
\015\0122 ) Spray arm removal. hold the center nut and spin the arm.
\015\012
\015\012f634f7c.jpg\015\012
\015\0123 ) Now you can remove the upper spray arm supply tub or referred to sometimes as "rear feed cap".
\015\012
\015\012a ) lift to depress the rear tab, i.e.
\015\012
\015\01287fb0d6.jpg\015\012
\015\012b ) Then twist the feeder to the right ( clockwise ), i.e.
\015\012
\015\0125f19a61.jpg\015\012
\015\0124 ) Now you can remove the center nut...
\015\012
\015\012
\015\012333a8e1.jpg\015\012
\015\012
\015\012Then remove the four # 20 torx head screws holding the filter in place, and lift the filter out.
\015\012
\015\012Below the filter you`ll find either alot of food debris, garbage etc. , but also a cover with either a single #15 torx head screw or it will simply be held with a lock tab which must be pushed to one side and the cover will pull straight up and out.
\015\012
\015\012Now you should see the chopper and screen assembly, it to can be clogged up pretty bad, clean it best you can...you don`t really want to remove this part.
\015\012
\015\012If my explanation is not clear enough, herre`s a link which provides a pretty good video of how to do this, these guys aren`t pro`s but the "how to" video is pretty thorough nonetheless.
\015\012
\015\012http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRCCrEwrst8&NR=1
\015\012The other posibility is the heating element or wires going to it. to access this you`ll need to remove the toe panel/kick plate...
\015\012
\015\012The element and wires are at the very back behind the sump assembly, so it is very tough to get at...I typically view it via a telescopic mirror and flashlight, or check it via the diagnostic attaching an ammeter to the live wire ( black ) near the junction box for amperage draw, below is an example...though your whirlpool will likely only pull about 7-8 amps.
\015\012
\015\0127892f31.jpg\015\012
\015\012place it here clamp on the black wire...
\015\012
\015\012f7b8a4e.jpg\015\012
\015\012If the element checks ok, the wires are attached ( if it draws amps, obviously the wires are attached ) then it is an issue with poor circulation as I alluded to initially.
\015\012
\015\012Let me know how you make out, please keep me informed if you need further assistance or anything is unclear.
\015\012
\015\012Thank you for choosing FixYa and good luck.

Hi, I have a Siemens SE24A230GB/17 dishwasher and it is not completing the wash cycle (any selected). It appears to be stuck on the 'wash' part of the program. I have done the reset actions as advised in the User Manual and tried another program, without success. I have found that the possible causes could be the timer or thermostat. The estimated time remaining display counts down, but the program does not complete the wash and move onto rinse and dry. Any help or advice you can provide would

My dishwasher spray arms were clogged with calcium buildup so I cleaned one and replaced the other. I also removed the fixed disc-shaped device underneath the lower spray arm and found the particle filter was clogged- so I cleaned it out. The dishwasher ran fine for a few times but then the filter clogged again, and again, and again. Now I need to make a routine of disassembling the parts to get at the filter every week because the filter no longer clears itself during the wash and/or emptying c

I purchased a Bosch dishwasher SHU43C02uc/22 about 4 years ago. Recently during the last 2 washes, the machine has been giving off a smell like hot rubber during the wash cycle. It otherwise runs perfectly (dishes are clean, drains okay, etc). I have done just the routine maintenance like checking for large pieces of food but have found nothing so far. Any suggestions as to where I should look for where the smell might be coming from?
