Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Bathtubs was not listed in the "pick an expert" list, so choose dishwashers as closest thing to a bathtub. I have a whirlpool bath tub (don't know the make, but it is only 4 years old) It works fine but have a question - near the top of the bathtub there is a screaw in cap type of thing. It is a disk with a threaded bit on the back. The disk is about 1-1/4 inches in diameter and the threaded bit on the back is about 1/2 inch diameter and 1 inch long. Is this for allowing extra air into the system, or what is its use? The bathtub has just a push button for activating the motor that drives the water out of the various jets.would appreciate some help in knowing what the valve type thing is near the top of the tub (olong the side). thank you

Dishwasher lights show "washing, drying, clean" like normal, but when it's finished I open it to find that the DW Detergent Pack never dissolved.

Make sure water is at least 120 degrees F.
As a test run water from the kitchen faucet closest to the dishwasher until it is a hot as it will get, put some in a cup then you can then check the temperature with a thermometer. OR you can just run the dishwasher to see if that helps.

Its easy to do. The out cabinet comes off and the components get switched over to the new tub. Before you do anything. Check your warranty. Many of the whirlpool tubs are warranty for life and will be replaced free of charge for a defect in the tub. IF you cannot find your booklet call whirlpool directly

Whirlpool Dishwasher power surge results in flashing clean button

I'm not sure what the sequence would be on your particular model as Whirlpool dishwashers can differ in operaiton. However, if you remove the lower kick panel under the dishwasher door, there should be a tech sheet either directly behind the panel, or tucked inside the door. The tech sheet will list all troubleshooting tips and any fault codes that the owner/operator's manual does not list. This is the SAME sheet the repairman will reference when they come to your home on a service call. Please let me know if you still require assistance. I hope this helps you.
