Question about Whirlpool 24 in. GU1200XT Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Water returns to tub between washes

Water fills in the tub for no apparent reason. After cycle, there is not water. The next day, I find water on the kitchen floor. I suspect a water inlet valve is bad. Can this be removed from the front without pulling the entire dishwasher out?

    When I am done using the dishwasher everything is fine but in a day or two there is water in the bottom of the tub and when you open the dishwasher door the water will get on the floor. What do I do to fix this problem?

It may not be a inlet valve at all possibly. First, does the water seem to be clean? You could possibly have a back flow situation coming from your plumbing. There are check valves between the drain line and the pump that may have come loose. This valve could possibly be letting water back flow into the unit over time. Just something to check out while your under there. If you do find it is your inlet valve, you should be able to remove and install by just removing the front kick plate. Turn the water off to the unit, and remove the water line running to the inlet valve. Most of the time, the valve is held in place by 1 or 2 screws. These are usually 1/4" or 5/16" sizes. You can then remove the inlet valve, un-hook the wires, then replace.

Whirlpool thin twin lt7100xvn0 wont complete the fill cycle

sounds like a bad water pressure switch not to difficult to do and not to costly. if its defective it will continue to fill and overflow never going into wash cycle. ( u can check it by having it set to wash and removing the long clear plastic tube hose from the tub not the switch, and blow into it, or u can use another small tube and insert it into the pressure switch & blow into it. if it starts the wash cycle the diaphram in the switch is ok if it doesnt the switch is bad) and u may want to check ur inlet water valve as u may have a bad water inlet valve. which can also keep water flowing no matter what u do even when unplugged from wall. Have u ever noticed water in the tub for no reason like the next day? these can be checked with a multimeter.

Set it going, fills up ok, goes through washing cycle but after spinning and then filling up for next cycle it overflows

Rather hard to understand your problem from the wording in the question but what I understand to be the case is that your tub fills up with water and overflows after the cycle is finished. Perhaps overnight water slowly fills the tub. This is due to the water inlet valve not shutting off all the way. The Inlet valve assembly needs to be replaced.

Washer tub filling with water - after returning from a weekend trip, we found water in the tub of the washer. Used the "Drain/Spin" cycle successfully, but two days later found the same problem...

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call ;-0(
Good luck,

Hi, After the first cycle, and after it drains/spins, does it start agitating when the next load of water is suppose to be filling?
Please let me know so I can assist you further. Sounds like the pressure hoe from the tub to the water level switch is plugged.

Dishwasher will not run after filled with water

The float switch in the tank is bad,also if water only trickles in your fill valve is going bad which will not let it fill all the way to start wash cycle. Fill tub with pot of water to raise float, if wash cycle starts,replace fill valve,if not,replace float switch.

Whirpool Duet won't spin clothes at high speed

Thinking of 2 things either the transmission is out or the clutch is burnt out and the drum basket and possibly the drive shaft broken as well. Prices vary greatly by how many of these things are broken but should run between 100-200 including labor.

Won,t drain on rinse cycle

There could be several causes for this, but probably a bad timer. One test for this...when it to turn it off...and turn the timer slightly the middle of the rinse cycle...and turn it back on. Does it run then?? Try advancing it to the spin cycle after the rinse. If it runs okay after you manually advance the knob...the timer is probably defective.
