Whirlpool Silent Partner 1 Dishwasher running too long in wash cycle
I just bought a brand new dishwasher and hooked it up yesterday. It ran in wash cycle for more then 1 hour 30 minutes , got tired of hearing it run and drained it. I had a old one that if I recall only ran about 45-60 minutes total. This new model is suppose to be a energy star product, how in the heck can it be saving money running so long?
And whats up with paying so much for a appliance and you dont even get the hoses or electric cord anymore. $425 for washer, $18 for hoses, $10 for electric cord.(Husband even went to lowes to buy a cord and they said they didnt sell them, he asked do the cords come with your dishwashers?, they said NO...Stupid huh?) I find this to be totally unexceptable, and a BIG rip off. The maker can buy these parts a lot cheaper then we can, so why not add the parts for a few bucks and keep the customer from running all over town trying to find the parts that should of been with the product to begin with. I don't know about you all, but I'm about feed up with companys nickel and diming us to death.
Just need to blow off some steam....... Grrrrrrrrrrrrr

I had the same problem with my dishwasher. After hearing that the motherboard was the problem I decided to take a closer look. There were two capacitors (1000 microfarads, 6.3 volts) that looked a little suspect. The tops of capacitors should be flat...these looked like soda cans that had been left in the freezer. Got on eBay, located the capacitors for roughly $3 and $4 shipping, for approx total of $10. Soldered the two new capacitors into the motherboard and put it back together. As soon as I closed the door, the dishwasher started draining the water. When I ran a Normal cycle it completed successfully. Saved myself over $120!
Test by restarting the cycle and see if water drains if it does not then there is either a blockege in the pipe ,pump,or in the machine where the water passes out normally through a filter if you have checked and cleaned out filter and drain pipe and there is still no draining then listen to the pump if you can hear a humming niose then there is something in the pump itself and you need to take it out and inspect the impelar houseing remove what ever is there put back and enjoy if there is no noise and pump is clean then it is proberly fualty and nedd replaceing.
hey you..I have a whirlpool dishwasher too that would not stop the wash cycle...it would run for 2-3 hours, and then run thru the whole wash cycle again!
so..I had a whirlpool factory trained repair man come to the home. He ran a diagnostic and it was 100% good, so he called Whirlpool headquarters spoke to them;
said...........every 250 hours the dishwasher will RE-CALIBRATE itself! running for 4-4 1/2 hours straight, in order to re-calibrate itself. I was interupting this by opening the door before it had run the full 4 -41/2 hours of it's self-maintenance program.
Perhaps that your dishwasher is doing too? p.s. always make sure you get a repairman that is factory trained in your specific brand, otherwise you'll waste $$$ money with a repairman who doesn't have access to the corporate tech's and direct access to their parts/inventory.
good luck with your dishwasher! mine is the whisper quiet with computer control on front of the door.
