Question about Whirlpool DP940PWSQ Free-Standing Dishwasher

1 Answer

Missing "turnscrew" I just purchased this as a floor model from Olum's in Vestal, NY. I brought the unit home and the "turnscrew" that fastens down the lower spray arm is missing. Please email me the part # so that I can have them secure one for me and I can start using my dishwasher! Thanks. Joe Roma

SOURCE: Whirlpool dishwasher model gu1200 not working

I checked. There is no sheet of any kind inside or below the door of my Whirlpool dishwasher.

In any case, opening up the non-washing washer revealed that the filter behind the chopper assembly was clogged with food. I cleaned it off, put the thing back together again, and it was washing dishes again, until about three days later. I took it apart again and found food clogging the filter behind the chopper. I thought the chopper wasn't chopping, so I replaced it. It was around $16. About three days later it wasn't washing dishes again.

Further examination (dis-assembly of the sump motor and impeller) revealed that the end of the impeller (which is designed to engage the chopper) had broken off, thus the chopper no longer spins with the sump motor. The impeller costs about $20 and isn't too hard to replace, as long and you keep track of what you've dis-assembled and put it back together in reverse order.

On whirlpool dishwashers, the sump motor drives the impeller (it's connected via the threaded end of the motor shaft) and the impeller, in turn, drives the chopper. The chopper you can replace from inside the tub, without removing the dishwasher from its home or taking apart the sump assembly. But save your $16, as that probably isn't what is wrong... The impeller, being screwed onto the motor shaft, requires complete removal of the dishwasher so that you can completely remove the base assembly that holds the motor assembly.

If you have a GU-series whirlpool washer, the tech manual can be found here:

It has complete instructions for the replacement of every part.

The illusive technical repair sheet that isn't there...

Turn the thing a little further and pull UP. It'll come out. You've got to put some muscle into it!

The manual for the GU1000/1200/1500 is here (it's almost the same and as close as I can get you to a 3200)

SOURCE: lower spray arm will not spray water

I just had a simliar problem with all spray arms and solved the problem by cleaning the food screen. Basically, it takes water pressure to make the spray arms rotate. Before assuming there is a failed part, make sure the spray arms are getting max water pressure by checking the food screen. Here's how I serviced my Kenmore dishwasher.

The lower arm assembley is removable by twisting the center plastic piece. It's not very tight and should come off easily by twist with a pliers (but gently). Then remove the tubing to the upper arms (Two screws). Then remove the bottom drain cover (4 star screws).

Under the drain cover are two more things to remove. One, a plastic plate over the bottom of the water drain (1 screw). Two cover to the food screen (1 screw). After removng the screw to the cover of the food screen, it will be a little difficult to remove that cover. The side opposite the screw requires releasing a catch with a screw driver. It's hard tell which way it releases, just keep trying different ways until it pops up. The cover may stick a little beacuse of the food stuck in the screen.

Once you have access to the screen, the screen can be removed by pulling on the center shaft (spring loaded) with a needle nose pliers and lifting the screen straight up. (Note: there maybe a blade next to the screen used to braek up the food.)

After removing the screen, clean it (I used a plastic scrub brush).

Reassembly is performaing these steps in the reverse order.

Hope this helps!

Hi Margarita,
  • It depends on which Vestal Watch model you have. Look on the back of the
  • caseback and it will have the model name. Then go to the Vestal Watch website
  • (www.vestalwatch.com) and look for your model name. Click on it and then click
  • on the instructions manual link to the right of the watch image. You can also
  • request a PDF of the instruction manual by emailing info@vestalwatch.com. If
  • you've done both of these things and still no luck, then call 949-631-7036 and
  • ask for instructions on how to set that specific model.

Hello Amelia;

My Name is peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You have a brand new unit off the floor. You do not have component failure problems.

You purchased a floor model. Floor models are set in the; "Demo Mode". In this mode your unit will not cool. Taking a unit out of the demo mode depends on the model. You need to contact your place of purchase to determine what buttons you need to press to get the unit out of the demo mode.

The people who deliver the units for Sears are contractors. Physical contract laborers. Most can not speak English.

I should know, I am a former Sears Home Service refrigeration/ A&E factory Service technician; all under the same umbrella. I have heard all the complaints about Sears deliveries.

Missing parts


The canvas on the Ab Lounge is NOT replaceable, and you will be treated rudely by anyone at the manufacturers phone number if you request this. They have designed this so that when the canvas tears or deteriorates you have to throw the entire piece of equipment away and purchase a new one! DO NOT buy their products! They do not care about what happens after their brief 90 day warranty!!
