Whirlpool DUB400XB-0 -- Insufficient Water

\015 Our Whirlpool Model DUB400XB-0 does not appear to be allowing enough water to enter to sufficiently clean the dishes. I have checked the supply and the valve is open. I believe some switch or valve may not be working correctly. Is this something I can fix?\015

Tricity Bendix DH090 water valve closes too early. Insufficient water causes program to stop before first heating cycle. If I switch off, open the machine & pour an extra pint of water in, shut the door & switch on again the wash takes place and completes perfectly to specification. OK so the problem seems to be that level detector No 1 switches off the water inlet valve early and level detector No 2 (apparently) halts the cycle since it detects insufficient water in the machine. I cannot see t

Previous wash cycle worked perfectly. Next morning , dished not washed. Water pressure is insufficient to spray. Checked sprayers and clean. Removed bottom sprayer arm and tested. Water flows barely. Water fills but pressure insufficient to spray. Actually 'bursts' slightly on shutoff. All other functions work perfectly.

Good morning! My Whirlpool dishwasher (I'm at work so don't know the precise number) leaves about an inch of water at the bottom after washing. I called a Whirlpool representative soon after my purchase (post Ike devastation of previous dishwasher that drained fully) and was told that this was rather normal for Whirlppol. I live on Galveston Island in Texas, and adding any more sources of water and humiditiy to my household seems counterproductive. Is there anything that I can do to cause

Whirlpool DU1101 Hello, My Whirlpool DU1100 is only 1 year old. The dishes are dirtu and the soap doesn't disolve completely My husband is convinvced it is low water pressure, primarily from a leak in the sprinkler system in the park behind our house. I think it is just a clog of some kind preventing the water from getting into the dishwasher fill and/or spray arms. The maunual says you need 20 120 PS to run the dishwasher I doubt it is below 20 PS because of a leak in the park. Is there anyway


Well you should have water up to the heating element. if there is more than likly your chopper is the culprate. do you make sure that there isn't big food particles on your dishes because that is a lot of stress on that chopper and that is what help ...

Maytag Dishwasher I would like to know the proper water level after DW fills. Older Whirlpool units a quick guide was when water just covered heater. I have a new D/W and the water supply is difficult to access, there is a kink in the water line slowing the water flow. The D/W fills to bottom of heater, but because the unit is so quiet I can't determine if it is timing out or working properly. I intend to repair water line when counter work is done. Thanks for any help Gary


Newer Maytags should fill close or up to the heater not over. Sounds like your alright for now but I would get that water line fixed. ... Maytag 24 in. MDB8951AWS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Whirlpool dishwasher doesn't seem to fill with enough water despite good water pressure. Therefore, pump sounds like it is cycling from pumping water for about 2 seconds to going dry for 2 seconds to pumping water for 2 seconds to going dry for 2 seconds, etc. Spray arms rotate only for the 2 seconds when pump is actually pumping water. Dishes do not get clean.

Dishwasher I have a whirlpool dishwasher that does not appear to be getting hot water. The washer water is cold initially and only seems to get warm once the heater in the base of the machine heats it. The hot water supply line does not get hot so I presume no water is being supplied. Is the water supposed to be hot at the start. If yes could this be caused be a faulty inlet valve and if so how can I check. The dishes are dirty especially on the top rack. Thanks for your help.

My WHirlpool dishwasher won't drain - basin is full of water. Machine starts and runs the drain cycle, but something is clogged. I opened up the bottom, and pulled off the drain hose to the disposal, and that had no water in it, so the clog is somewhere before the water gets to the hose. If I run the dishwasher drain cycle, it is not pumping water into the hose. What next?


The clog could be in the hose,or on up in the mouth of the drain,air pressure might dislodge the clog,or dissasible of the drain pan in the machine. ... Dishwashers

Item: Whirlpool Ultra Dishwasher Age: 3 yrs Problem: Not enough water to effectively wash the dishes. State: When the dishwasher is started, the fill valve opens as normal. Only about 1/2 the amount of water is let in when the pump turns on and the washing cycle begins. Opening the door shows that the water level does not reach the bottom of the float. When I close the door, the wash cycle begins again but stops after a few seconds. This is when the water begins to fill again. This time, the wat

We have a IKEA Whirlpool DWF 407 dishwasher that suddenly stopped pumping in water. It's just stuck in a loop where it sounds like the water pump is dryheaving and soon after it starts smelling a bit burnt and smells a bit like a battery. I've checked the overflooding breaker and there's no water down there and I can hear the switch turning on if I move the floater upwards. Also checked so that the water hose up on top of the machine is securely fixed. Any ideas?

Whirlpool Dishwasher GU2548XTP- Dishes still dirty after it has run, especially the top rack. 5 (?) yrs old. Runs and grinds intermittently, no water seen under unit. Sometimes I add more water when it grinds, then it runs very quiet. Sometimes it doesn't seem to fill enough. Water supply good, inlet screen inspected not clogged.

My sound conditioned Whirlpool dishwasher is real old. It fills up completely with water. It looks like it will overflow, so I stop it. I thought it always started washing from the start. Do they always fill completely up with water, then start washing. I never noticed. I am afraid the water will overflow. Can it? Last time I ran this, it had a real loud motor. I used to hear the motor running from the start, but now I don't, just water filling up to what looks like overflow if I let it. I baile

My whirlpool quiet partner II is not quiet at all. When I start the cycle it starts humming and a little vibrating and I open it up and no water. I close it and wait it out every 10 minutes I open it back up and no water. The heating element is hot and stinky since there's no water.

Whirlpool dishwasher: Model DU920PWKT0; 8 years old Lately, have noticed not full drainage of water at end of cycle... about 1 inch standing (thus 2 inches at the sump). Glasses have had noticeable film on them. Ran the rinse cycle a number of times to explore problem. When I interrupted the cycle, the water on the bottom was soapy, yet no new soap had been introduced. I even colored the water "left" in the tub to see if it was replaced by fresher water.

Our Whirlpool KUDP01ILBS2 dishwasher isn't working like it used to. Dishes seem to be getting partially clean, they aren't getting dry at all and it seems they may be being rinsed/washed with dirty water. There is plenty of water in the machine when I interupt the cleaning cycle. I always run the hot water in the sink before I start the dishwasher so the first water into the dishwasher is as hot as possible. Also the sani-rinse light is flashing when the cycle "completes".

Whirlpool Quiet Wash Plus dishwasher Model DU920PFGZ3. Worked fine until I replaced the insinkerator and forgot to punch the drain plug leaving water standing on the bottom of the machine. I punched the drain opening, and pushed the cancel/drain cycle button. It drained fine but since no water comes from the spray arms. I have removed the arm all the way down..NOTHING!! Some research indicated it could be the water inlet valve. When the buttons are pushed, it cycles but no spray or water.

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.

My Whirlpool Gold Series 980 dishwater no longer fills up with enough water to drive the washing arms, so the dishes do not come out clean. I cleaned the filter on the water intake valve (which was really clogged) and it still did the same thing. Replaced the inlet valve and still no change. The water does not reach the level of the overfill float switch, so that’s not it. Its been working fine for 4-5 years, what else could it be? Thank you.
