BE Sure you are not using detergent that has the softener/rinse agent already included. The electrasol 3in 1 tablets will cause an over abundance of suds if you use the two together. The water becomes very soft. You have locked up the pump with suds.
use 1/2cup salt to flush followed by 1/4c oil.

Thanks

You have to replace the rinse aid compartment if not the whole inside door shell ,the reason for the coating is because your not using rinse aid.If you are using the same soap than you need to replace the leaking dispensor.

SOURCE: Whirlpool dishwasher will not start

I have a quiet partner I and it is doing the same thing!
I have only had it for 3 months. It did it once before, then after about a week, I tried it again and it worked fine?
I can't find my warranty anywhere. I bought it at Lowes.
Does anyone have any kind of solution? Looks like it is a common problem.

Sounds like you've diagnosed the solution on your own.. Most of the inlet valves are spring loaded so that if power is removed or disabled.. it defaults to a closed state and doesn't allow water int the wash basin. To open, they need to be energized by the control system so you may have one of two issues.. a faulty inlet valve that doesn't spring closed when it is not energized or a controller that is comanding that valve to open ( less likely of the two) For a quick test.. make sure the DW is dry inside and open the door. wait and watch for water to enter the basin.. If it does begin to fill up.. your inlet valve could be the root of your problem.. It is also possible that you are back-siphoning waste water in from the drain system. If the water looks dirty then that is more than likely the problem so you may have a clogged pump, kinked drain hose or your drain system itself is not draining as fast as the DW pump forces the water out.
You should routinely clean the pump filter so that the pump can remove all the wash water without having to draw it thru food debris caught in the filter.. Hope someof these ideas will help you solve your problem..

SOURCE: Dish washer over filling?

The first thing you should do is clean the level probes in the unit. There are two probes sticking through the back of the unit and the water completes a circuit between these two telling the machine when it is full. If they are clean, you may have a faulty sensor or wiring.

Fills and drains but will not wash


Hello, If you sprinkle Baking soda all around the floor of the machine, pour some "jet Dry" and use the "Diamond" Dishwashing liguid to squirt in hole. The key is to NOT close the little door on the hole where the liquid goes in to. Also, leave the "jet-dry" knob off! Make sure your Garbage disposal is cleaned and freshly sharpened with some ice cubes and lemon wedges. Then turn on your dishwasher ! Let it run its Full course and your dishes should sparkle!!

I have a Model #DU960 Pwkq1 Whirpool dishwasher leaking


It is probally leaking from the vent assembly, rinse aid or soap dispenser. You will need to remove the door panel. Do this when the dishwasher is dry. Look closely for staining where the water is running down the inside of the door. Replace the gasket. Here is a couple links that should help with this.

Whirlpool gold diswasher - sudddenly dishes/glassware/silver are all cloudy. rinse aid doesn't help. have tried running machine empty to "clean out" pipes, etc. plz help.


alot of people think the rinse aid is full but, its not. how to properly fill unit.
1. open compartment
2.fill with jet dry
3.close compartment
4.lower and raise door 3 times
5. open compartment
6.add more jet dry
7. lower and raise the door to see if it still looks full.
the reason for this is there is air in the dispenser and this process will take out the air to be completely filled the dispenser.

every bosch dishwasher unit is different. you can get odor from different source. #1 solution to fight odor is the proper maintenance. every month run the cycle with just a cup of vinegar on a hot wash. i am a old bosch tech and alot of people dont add the jet dry properly. this is for drying,spots and-cleaning you must add the jet dry or rinse agent (same thing)into the compartment. close compartment,then lower and raise door 3 times,then fill again repeat until you cant add anymore then it is filled.if this help please send me a 4 thumbs up post. thanks

make sure when you fill the jet dry that you make sure it is completely filled. you must add jet dry,close door,lower and raise the door 3 times and then check normally you could add more jet dry because the air is now pushed out by this process. and finally b4 you turn on your machine make sure tolet your faucet run until it hot and then start machine. that should handle the problem. let me know if this helps by sending me a 4 thumbs up post . thanks

Does not dry adequately particularly plastic containers. Tried keeping door closed and opened after cycle . Dishwasher itself is also wet


your probablem is that your jet dry compartment is not full. im a old thermador tech. here is the trick: add jet dry until it is filled then close the door and raise door up then down then up then down 3-times what this is doing is taking the air out of the dispenser and making space for more liquid to be added by you. so add more until fill repeat steps until it cant take anymore. then run the faucet until the water going into machine is hot then turn the unit on . you will see a big difference. let me know how you made out with a 4 thumbs up if it works

We have the Whirlpool Gold quiet partner III dishwasher and lately have noticed residue on the dishes after the cleaning cycle is complete. Where is the trap to clean?


Make sure your water is hot, at least 120deg f. Also, use least amount of soap you can get away with. Usually around 2 tablespoons for soft water. Use powdered soap not gel. Gel leaves a tiny residue each load and will clog up plumbing in dw after 4,5,or 6 years. Rinse agent such as Jet Dry is highly recommended.

Try the "Tang" trick. Orange Tang drink mix is mildly acidic. With an empty dishwasher, start and fill, then normal drain. On second fill, add a full jar of Tang then let the dishwasher run for a few minutes. Crack the door to stop the dishwasher and let it sit for several hours or overnight. Then close the door, push start and let the dw run through the remaining cycle. This will sometimes clean out the crud in the water lines.

Hope this helps! Ken

Not Drying


I found that if the rinse agent (Jet Blue) has run out the dishes stay wet.
