Having problems with your Whirlpool DU840CWD Dishwasher ?

DU840 Whilpool dishwasher is making a screeching sound off and on throughout the wash and rince cycles. Sounds like a loose belt but could not find a belt in the parts list for this model. Spray arm does not appear to be clogged. Not sure if float valve has anything to do with this either. Thank you!

Hi,
\015\012Take the kickplate off and then run a cycle... you should be able to tell then whether the sound is coming from the fill valve... usually in the front left of the machine... or the motor bearing which would be further back and center of the machine...
\015\012
\015\012The sound is like coming from one of those two sources...

Whirlpool DU900,09,10,11,15,20,30,DUL100 Hi, I'm not sure what exact model mine is, but those are the models listed on the manual. I opened the washer and the whole upper part of the wash tower was laying on the dishes! I took everything out, and began trying to think logically, and re-assemble the thing; nothing appears to be broken. page 17 of the manual is the only place that even shows this set up, but it's just a part description. As I am looking at the picture, I realize that the spray tow

The top spray arm of my Frigidare model FBD4315LFC0 Aqua Surge dishwasher fell off. Their appears to be a missing part. I've been searching online for a schematic and can't find one thorough enough to use. The parts I have are: 1. The top sprayer arm (the one in the top of the tub) 2. The two piece plastic keeper ring that appears to fit into the top of the spray arm. 3. A small white grommet looking item that fit inside the keeper nut. 4. The keeper nut that screws directly onto the wate

My LG LDF7810ST dishwasher does not spray water from the middle or upper spray arms, therefore the dishes don't wash properly. Even when I ask for a top load only, the bottom spray arm is the only one moving (which I would expect that it shouldn't move at all since I've requested a top load only) I checked the spray arms as best I can to make sure that they're not clogged.

Hi I have a Kenmore model 13742k. The dishes in the upper tray are not getting cleaned. The upper spray arm is not circulating. I dissassembled the components from the base leading up to the spray arm but there is no clogging. Water does flow out of the spray arm but prob not enough to turn it. The turbo components are clear as well. Any ideas? Thanks Richard

I have a GE Profile, GSD4930X73WW, dishwasher. The upper wash arm is not spraying well at all. I checked the water line from the pump to the upper arm and it's fine. I cleared the filters and cleaned the float. I also took the inlet valve off and cleaned the screen. Although the washer works better overall, the upper arm still does not work well. Nothing appears to be in the upper arm assy to clog water from spraying out. All seems clear from the turbid sensor (next to the pump) through t

- the dishes and glassware on the top rack are not coming out clean - I checked the course strainer to see if it is being blocked but don't see any thing there - I also took out the spray arm that sprays up into the top rack and ran water through it with a hose - it also appears to be free of clogs. - I don't see the spray arm spinning when I open the door during the wash cycle - - lastly, it may be unrelated, but the dishes are not coming out of the washer as hot as they used to be any i

It appears that water is not running through the dishwasher or that the sprayers are not working correctly. There doesn't appear to be a clog. However, I did find a round rubber "washer" (I think that is what they are called) laying in the bottom of the dishwasher - where does this part go. It was working fine until this wash. The heating element works fine but like I said it appears that something may be wrong with the spray tower. Please advise Model number of Hotpoint: HDA3420Z01BB T

I have model DU810SWPU3 Whirlpool dishwasher that is 1 yr old. Plastic dishes appear to have a film on them when cycle is complete. The water also seems to drain slowly. I assume that what appears to be the filter needs to cleaned but I'm not sure how to remove it to clean it. Is the plastic area with all of the square holes on the bottom of the appliance the filter? That part is what seems to be clogged. Thanks!

I have a Quiet Guard Standard model #587.151524 that is not cleaning the dishes. I took the bottom spray arm and screens out and cleaned them, (they had a heavy buildup of what I would say is calcium. The arm cleaned up fine but the screen still has some areas that will not allow the water to drain. I tried CLR and it helped but the screen is still probably 60% clogged. Do you think this is the problem getting the dishes clean and if so do you have any suggestions about how to clean the screen?

I have a GE Dishwasher model #GSD4134Z02WW. I am trying to remove the lower spray arm. Mine is cracked. There are no screws or bolts holding the arm in the dishwasher that I can see. The new piece appears to have threads on it as to indicate that you would just screw it in place. The old piece doesn't screw/turn. How do I remove this piece?

I have a GE dishwasher with the following model number: GSD3230F00WW. Last night, while the dishwasher was in the clean cycle, a buzzing/grinding sound came from underneath the dishwasher. I removed the access panel to try to isolate the sound. It appeared to come from a solenoid that was connected to an arm that opened and closed something. I am not sure if the solenoid is bad or if there was something that was preventing it from operating properly. I moved the arm to which it was connected


The part you are referring to is the pump out solenoid. ( part # WD21X10071) When the dishwasher is suppose to pump out, power is applied to the solenoid and it swings a flap inside the pump assembly to divert the pumped water out the ... GE Dishwashers

It appears that the spray arm is not moving, or at least not moving much. What can I do myself to check this out and possibly take things apart to see if something is clogged?

The machine does not seem to rinse properly. We have checked the water fill level, water temperature, spray arms are not clogged, have determined it is not a hard water problem and have tried Glass Magic and CLR to verify the lattter. What else can we check to stop getting a film on everything in the machine? Plastics come out terrible, glasses and dishes foggy and sometimes still greasy.

Yes it can get plugged. Any debris pumped up to the arm can get lodged into the tiny holes. Also, sometimes the arm itself becomes split along the joint between the lower and upper half.
