Having problems with your Whirlpool DU1055XTS Built-in Dishwasher ?

My dishwasher is not washing. It runs water in and out, but is not washing. I hear the motor. The repair man told me that I would need top get to the chopper inside the dishwasher. I am not sure how to do this. Is there an illustration of this somewhere?


Answers :

Appliance repair parts stores carry service manuals for individual brands if you need step by step instructions. The basic procedure is to disassemble the lower spray arm assembly down to the deck. If you attempt this, keep track of the placement of all components as you work downward. The chopper is right at the bottom under all of this. The usual problem found is the large screen at the bottom that becomes plugged with hard water and food deposits. Clean the screen in hot water, white vinegar, and detergent. The vinegar will take about an hour to dissolve the hard water scale. Check the spray arms for plugged spray holes and possible split seams. Look for blockage of any holes in the deck itself. Re-assemble in reverse order. Hope this helps!

The items on the top rack never come out clean. there is always food residue left. it seems that the final rinse doesn't get to the glasses. we need to rinse them all out before the drying cycle starts or else the dirt dries up inside the glasses and we need to make them soak to remove the dirt!

I have a whirlpool GU2700XTSQ1 dishwasher. I have the typical top rack not cleaning problem. I have removed the rear washer tube that leads to the top sprayer, no clogs. Upper arm is clear, lower arm is clear. I also removed the lower cover, checked the chopper screen and inlet, no clogs. There is a screen inside that I cannot get to. It appears to have some sort of paper or cloth sticking through the screen with a 50% block. Perhaps a sticker or label from a dish. I see this screen when looking

I have a frigidaire dishwasher 4000 series aqua surge with speed clean. The small spray arm on the ceiling of the washer came off. I found it sitting on top of some cups in the top basket. There is a loose part inside the retainer in the ceiling that moves back into the retainer when I try to put the spray arm back on. How do I fix this and how do I get the top basket out to work on it?

Need a service/repair manual for a Bosch SGS0905AU/01. The machine is completely dead (no display) after a burnt smell came from it. On the pump motor is a broken/melted brown attachment with a broken ceramic(?) disc inside which looks like some type of capacitor. I really need to know what this is/was so I can replace it. Also, need to know whether there is another fuse somewhere in the machine as that has most likely blown as well. TIA

My SGS55M72AU/65 does not get rid of its drain water, although that wee pump in the bottom is clearly working (which I could see after removing filters and pump cover). There is no blockage near the drain pipe connection, so I infer there is a blockage somewhere inside the dishwasher, in a place I can't get to without further instruction. I've removed most of the drain water and pulled the unit out, so I could lay it on its side and start taking screws out. But I much prefer to have some guidanc

My 5-year old Bosch dishwasher leaves a somewhat fine grit on dishes? especially obvious on the inside of glasses. I use only Cascade detergent, use a rinse aid, don't overfill the machine, and always make sure that the filter at the bottom of the dishwasher is clean. I also make sure that the spinner is able to move freely. But, after all of that, I sometimes get very clean dishes; even more often, not. I see no rhyme or reason. I am presently looking at an entire load that has gone through
