Question about Whirlpool 24 in. DU1148XTP Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Our dishwasher came without a manual . It runs FOREVER. Normal?

We bought a floor model Whirlpool DU1148XTPB dishwasher at Best Buy. Our dishwasher came without a manual or a hook-up kit (or anything else that might have come with it). Best Buy is doing nothing about that. On normal cycle, our dishwasher has been running for nearly 2 hours and it doesn't seem to be letting up. Is this normal? We were told to run it through a cycle before we put dishes in it but at this rate it may take several days! Also, the hoses leak like sieves. We took several trips to the hardware store today to try to find anything that would work to connect your dishwasher to our plumbing. None of it worked with the hoses that worked with our old dishwasher. Should it have come with some hoses that would have been compatible? We bought an attachment kit at Best Buy when we bought the machine but it didn't have anything that would work with the drain hose.

I've never had a Whirlpool but I've always heard good things about your company. Sadly, this has not been our experience. We have already put 2 days into trying to install it and it still doesn't work properly. The last time we replaced a dishwasher, it took about an hour.

Brand new whirlpool dishwasher starts on own

Because you cheated and filled it manually, it may be that the second running was actually resetting the programme. Do a normal wash, and if it does it again, contact the maker for advice.

My dishwasher just runs forever - washes and doesn't stop - what is the normal wash time?

Check the manual to see if the machine has a "Delime Mode".

What you described is exactly what delime mode does, If that is the case simply deactivate delime mode as decribed in the manual.

If this is not the case your machine's timer is stuck in wash mode.

On many commercial models the timers have microswitches that go bad and can be replaced however on a household unit you will probably have to replace the timer.

Our dishwasher has been running for over 2 hours.

Make sure the machine is in the normal cycle and the sani cycle is not selected. If the sanitize cycle is selected the machine will run for a long time while the water heats up . Go back to Best Buy and demand an owners manuel, don't let them get away with this. Also the machine is waranteed through Whirlpool and you should not have to pay for a service call if anything is wrong.
