Having problems with your Whirlpool DU1055XTS Built-in Dishwasher ?

The door would not shut. We checked all around and nothing was blocking the door from shutting. We determined the latch on the door was not releasing. I forced the door shut. The touchpad works...lights come on but unit will not operate. The release handle on the front just wiggles back and forth without effect. Lowes says it is one of three parts...none returnable. Any thoughts on what part and whether this is something average consumer can self fix? Thanks.


Answers :

Hi,
\015\012 Lowes is right regarding the parts needed.
\015\012
\015\012First check the strike part is ok - that's on the body of the machine not the door.
\015\012
\015\012Unplug the machine.
\015\012
\015\012Remove the front door panel by removing the visible screws on the door.
\015\012Check the door catch for broken parts, and order those required before using again,
\015\012It is a fairly easy fix once you've identified the part required.

I have an electronic operating Kitcheaid Dishwasher. It has a tendency to stop in the middle of a cycle without warning. This can happen at different times of the day and at different stages of washing. We open the door, make sure the racks are pushed in tight and close and hold the door tight for a few moments. The dishwaser comes back on, but this can repeat in the course of one wash.

I have a KitchenAid but model # KUDI24SEWH1. Can not find it on your list although another model without the last letters 'WH1' is on it. Anyway, my nephew ordered the parts he said needed to be replaced. One was the top water feed tube and bearing which he had no problem replacing when the part came in. But, he is having a very difficult time opening up the front door to replace the soap dispenser. Removed the 6 screw (three on each side) and the two at the top of the door but that is as far

Low Pressure with no hose attached, pressure is good, attach hose without wand and pressure drops 50%. Have had pump apart 10 times, have checked bypass valve, have even removed bypass and filled passage way so water could not bypass wihout any change. Am down to thinking pump casting is cracked allowing bypassing to happen. Does each of the three piston chambers have a check valve so one piston is not pumping back into another piston chamber?

Bosch Dishwasher I have a stainless steel Bosch dishwasher, I made the "mistake" to try to see if I could fix the jammed handle from the door. Unfortunately, (did not realize the top panel comes off without opening the entire door). I removed the screws from the door frame (Inside panel), and the door springs/latched got loose. I would like to put it back together, but I dont have any diagrams on the door to make sure all parts are in place to put the door back together. I have been havin


Hi ED,\015\012\015\012It sounds like a real problem here. If the springs are still in one piece, my best guess is to to remove the springs from the door.

I have a Bosch SHU8805UC/14 dishwasher. I took the front door panel off to install it better but ended up with two extra pieces that look like either part 935400 Door Guard, or 935526 Support. I cannot seem to find any place on the inside of the door where these pieces would fit. The dishwasher works fine but seems like it got noisier after I put it back together without these two parts. Can you help me locate the proper place for these 2 plastic parts?

The three lights for Pots & Pans, Normal Wash, Econo Wash are all flashing. When I hold the start button down for four seconds, just the Normal light is on. However, once I close the door, all three lights are on again, and the dishwasher does not start. We have tried unpugging it and then plugging it in again. It worked once then went back to all three light flashing. Before this, only the Normal Wash and Econo Wash lights were flashing.

I have a bosch SHU8815UC dishwasher. It was already installed when i moved into my apartment - so I'm unsure of the age. The dishwasher isn't functioning. When I open the door, the "Clean" light and the PowerScrub button are red. When i close the door, the light go off but nothing happens. One time I closed the door, it started to rev up but would shut off and beep three times after about 1 min. No water comes out. Any ideas? Thanks! June

The dishes are not clean when we run the wash cycle. It looks like the water flow from the top sprayer is NOT working. The door, when we open it, has undesolved soap stuck in globs on the top of the door. The top dishes are not clean and some of the botom dishes are not clean. We've run some clear washes to see if we can find the problem. The water flow looks suspect. Is it in the electronics or in the water mechanics.

16 year old GE built-in dishwasher, model GSD900. Springs that prevent front door from falling disconnected. ALL parts APPEAR to be in good condition. I say appear in good condition because I don't know what they are supposed to look like. But I see nothing obviously broken. The 2 springs appear intact. The connecting cable is good. However one of the 2 springs is shorter than the other. It may be shorter because one is supposed to stretch to the other side of the dw? So number 1

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model 66574362K2. It has worked fine until tonight. I opened the door before the end of a cycle, closed the door, and pushed the cancel drain button. There was still water in the bottom but the dishes were basicly finished. Now I can not seem to get the dishwasher to come back on. The lock button seems to be on and it usually is not on. The manual says to push and hold the button for 4 seconds to turn it off. I did that. But now it is flashing between the Heate

I turned on the dishwasher tonight and noticed nothing was happening, but I was getting a clicking sound. I moved the dial back to off and started over. Some water went in, but then nothing happened again. I clicked forward one click at a time. Sometimes water came in. THEN WATER STARTED LEAKING OUT. I clicked back to off. After water stopped leaking, I opened the door. There is still water in the bottom. What do I do???

Bosch #SHU9955 Integra dishwasher for the last three uses, the soap dispenser door was open with the powder soap caked in the lowest one half of the pocket dispenser. The dispenser door locked and unlocked easily with the trip lever.

Cranky dishwasher I have to admit my wife's solution is the only one that works. Our ten-year-old Superba built-in usually starts a normal cycle part-way through, at the wash part, without filling or opening the dispenser door. Therefore the dishes come out with the soil now baked on. Closing the door, selecting normal and start results in a pump-out sound, or at least just the pump running to wash the dishes. The dishwasher ignores any cancel button push,and the light does not come on over t

My power button cover broke on the dishwasher and I figured out the part number I needed, but when I put it back together I got the wires crossed on the board and door switch. Now the control lights up , but the dishwasher will not run a cycle. THe question is does the plug on the door switch have to be a certain way, because there are three wires and you can connect the plug both ways. I did turn the plug, but it still does not run. Did I break the switch? Bosch SHU9956uc/14


The wires do have to be a certain way on the door. Otherwise a door open can tell the board that's it shut and vice versa. The easiest way to do it, is test the switch with an ohmmeter, place the meter on the switch, push button in and see if the rea ... Bosch SHU9956 Built-in Dishwasher
