Having problems with your Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher ?

Top tray of Kenmore Quietguard3 dishwasher not cleaning!


Answers :

The top rack is not cleaning because of low water pressure from the wash motor to the upper spray arm.
Assuming\015\012the top spray arms are clear of debris, remove the lower spray arm and lower feed tube to\015\012access the wash motor. Remove the 4 torx screws and the filter\015\012(accumulator assembly). Remove the torx screw and the inlet protector\015\012that covers the chopper assembly. Make sure the chopper is not broken\015\012(broken chopper will fill with debris and block water flow). While\015\012holding the chopper blade, reach inside the "D" shaped opening on top\015\012of the motor and spin the wheel/motor by hand in each direction to make\015\012sure either the chopper gear or the motor gear that drives the chopper\015\012is not broken. Replace the chopper if necessary (part # 8268383). If\015\012the motor gear is broken, replace the sump and motor assembly (part #\015\0128535150). Remove any debris from the sump area in the process.
You\015\012don't have to shut the power off to the dishwasher because the door will be open, but if you feel more\015\012comfortable, do so.
Good luck!

I have a Kenmore Ultra Dishwasher. The bottom arm spins, the top doesn't, although water drips out. The water fills up under the heating element. The top dishes aren't getting clean and the bottom aren't as clean as they used to be. I also noticed that the soap dispenser is open, some of the soap is gone, but there's still some soap in left in the dispenser. This never happened before and it happens all the time now. Thanks for any help you can give me!

I just bought a used Kenmore standalone dishwasher and ran it for the first time. The dishes on the top did not get clean and the soap did not come out of the closed soup dish. at one point I took a shower and was wondering if that might have influenced the water pressure enough to cause the problem. Is the soap supposed to open during the wash and could the poor water pressure prevent the top shelf from getting properly washed?

My Kenmore Elite model # 630.16302402 dishwasher isn't getting the dishes clean. A lot of food is still on the dishes after cleaning, especially inside the glasses. There is a white film on glasses and the inside of the appliance. I also just noticed that the upper arm isn't turning. There is about 1/2 cup of water standing in the drain area (not visible until removing the filter tray at the bottom of the appliance). Is this normal? The obvious problem is the upper arm but it seems like the rin

Hi experts! The middle wash arm in the dishwasher (underneath the top tray) does not seem to be spinning resulting in dirty glassware etc. I have checked the arm for debris which is clear and clean. The only thing I can think off is there is not enough pressure being pushed through the pipe from the back of the machine. Unfortunately I do not know where to go from here? Please help! Thanks Paul
