Whirlpool DU1100XTPS dishwasher leaking from front door panel

We recently purchased a brand new DC1100XTPS dishwasher and did self installation. The dishwasher seems to work fine and we are very happy with wash quality for the dishes, particularly Sani-Rinse feature.

However dishwasher is leaking from the front door. I have already checked the level, door seal, door latch and everything seems to be fine.

I couldn't figure out what is wrong. The hoses and pump under the dishwasher are just fine. There's something wrong with the door which is causing this leak.

Could this be a loose Door Latch ?
How do I adjust door latch on this model ?

Thanks,

    mine is an older model # DU840CWDBO, but i'm having the same problem. of course, i don't have the option of a free warranty service call!

    I had the same problem and solved it. Check your installation screws where you anchored the dishwasher into the underside of the countertop. In my case, I had installed the unit slightly backward to much, resulting in the door not closing tight enough against the unit main frame. Good luck!

Hi karen_kinzer,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

The d/w was a recent purchase?

Then my advise to you is don't worry about it! The unit should be under warranty. It's time to make the call. Let the warranty repairman worry about it. If he can't fix it, he has the authority to condemn it and you'll get a new one. Anyway, this is one problem you should not have to worry about.

After the last time I ran the dishwasher there is standing water in the bottom of it and now the dishwasher won't come on.


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.It sounds like the thermal fuse failed.Open the door remove the screws around the top and flip the control panel open.There is a white fuse with two wires coming from it check it for continuity or jump the two wires together to see if it powers back up. If it does replace the fuse with part #8193762 install the whole kit just follow the directions that come with it.And remember tu turn the power off before checking and installing the fuse.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance.

Roaches in circuit board of whirlpool dishwasher


They are there for the food supply of course.

Take the front panel off and spray the interior where no electrical connections are with a contact killer roach spray. Do the same with the inside of the dishwasher and then leave for a couple of days with the door closed.

Before using the dishwasher again run it empty with detergent and about 3 cups of vinegar. Do this two or three times to make sure you get all the insecticide out.

You may have to do this more than once as they lay eggs which are not affected by the contact spray.

Read the label on spray or powder to see what company says about toxicity. Boric acid is probably one of the safer things you can use and is effective against roaches (at your pharmacy in powder form). And don't skimp on cleaning the dishwasher after as the idea is to kill the roaches not yourself.

Either that or replace the whole unit.

Whirlpool dishwasher won't start


I have had the same problem with my dishwasher. I.e., the buttons don't respond (no LED) when you press them. Only the "Cancel/Drain" light works and the dishwasher reacts to cancel/drain. I found a diagnostic in the kick panel that has you press; "heated dry, normal, heated dry, normal" within 6 seconds and the washer goes through a diagnostic. All of the tests perform as they should and at the end the washer works again. I don't know why unless doing this resets the circuit board. Does anyone know?

Watch the light closely. If it blinks 7 times then pauses, this indicates a heater or door latch issue.
Press the following buttons in sequence: Hi Temp Wash, Heated Dry, Hi Temp Wash, Heated Dry, Hi Temp Wash.
If this doesn't work, check the tech sheet. (should be stuck to inside of the bottom toe panel)

All lights should illuminate then a diagnostic sequence will start.
Listen carefully, as soon as you hear the water begin to fill, open the door and feel the heater. if cold, check the heater for continuity (should be around 10ohms)
Also, bend the door catch on the dishwasher tub downward, this will engage the door latch better. Don't bend too far as it will hit the door while closing.
