SOURCE: dishwater fills with water, hot...but doesnt wash?

when in the wash phase, listen for a low hum near the wash pump. if you hear this it indicates the wash pump capacitor is faulty or something jammed in the pump.after that you will have to access the wash pump and check if there is any supply to it

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.

SOURCE: Hi I have a Kenmore model

The top rack is not cleaning because of low water pressure from the wash motor to the upper spray arm.
Assuming the top spray arms are clear of debris, remove the lower spray arm to access the wash motor. Remove the 4 torx screws and the filter (accumulator assembly). Remove the torx screw and the inlet protector that covers the chopper assembly. Make sure the chopper is not broken (broken chopper will fill with debris and block water flow). While holding the chopper blade, reach inside the "D" shaped opening on top of the motor and spin the wheel/motor by hand in each direction to make sure either the chopper gear or the motor gear that drives the chopper is not broken. Replace the chopper if necessary (part # 8268383). If the motor gear is broken, replace the sump and motor assembly (part # 8535150). Remove any debris from the sump area in the process.
You don't have to because the door will be open, but if you feel more comfortable shutting off the power to the dishwasher, do so.
Good luck!

There are several reasons if spray arms doesn't spray water. First you need to check efficiency of circulation pump. If it works, then should check the turbine of circulation pump. Sometimes turbine blades can be broken and the pump does not produce enough pressure to turn the spray arms. Be sure to check that the filter is not clogged which can also causes same problem. Finally, check that the nozzles of spray arms are not clogged.
So, could be:
- motor circulation pump
- circulation pump
- filter
- spray arms
- electronic or power board

DISHWASHER DOES NOT CIRCULATE WATER


It means the spray arm is not moving correctly. Or there is something blocking it. Make sure you don't load tall glass, large plate or cutting boards. There is no waste basket in a dishwasher, only mesh filters. Unfortuantely, all debris ends up in the motor/pump assy. They do have something called a macerator, which breaks-up large food particles. If this macerator is clogged, you will have to replace it.

I have a whirlpool Adp8540 that seems to go through the wash cycle completely but when we open it up the water has not gone through the spraying arms and the soap is a solid mass at the bottom of the...


It is likely the water circulation system is faulty. This dishwasher uses a single motor to run the water pump and the drain pump. If you hear the wash pump operate during wash cycle then it is likely there is a blockage in the water circulation manifold which distributes the water through the arms.

If you do not hear the pump operate during wash cycle then the sensor is faulty. The sensor tells dishwasher to switch to drain cycle from wash cycle.

The wash spray arms are not turning the water line is free and not pinched water is on wiring is right whats up model its a ldf7920st


This sounds like your motor is not circulating properly, this will cause the spray arms not to operate properly, or at all. Are you receiving any kind of error code on the display? Also, how far is the dishwasher filling up?

I am having problems getting the soap to realease to wash my dishes,in my whirlpool dishwasher what is wrong with it?


Make sure u are not stacking anything in front of the dispensor, check that the spray arms are not full of food, restricting the water spraying out of them. and lastly check to see if the main wash pump is circulating the water properly.

Kenmore elite dishwasher 665 purchased in 2001


Sometime objects tend to build up under the screen and around the circulating pump. These objects will block the water ports and cut the ability of the spray arms to rotate. If you are carefull you can disassemble the unit under the bottom spray arm and inspect/clean the screen and circulating pump.

Spray arms


Sounds like the circulating pump is faulty or the spray arms hav become partially clogged. Loss of available water will stop the spray arm motion.
