Question about Whirlpool 24 in. DU1148XTP Built-in Dishwasher
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.
Ok ...you have a wee bit of a problem...a new dishwasher even a floor model has a warranty..just call for service...best buy will send someone,,,now all units come with everthing accept electrical cord,,,i could only find drain hose part number 8269144,,but for owners manual go to servicematters.com..last just go back to best buy and find your model and see if you can get part number off installation kit..inside new unit.../

I have an older dishwasher also and recently my wife also complained about it not cleaning right... so me being the man I am tried in vain to clean the things... Bought new spray arms online and installed them in minutes...now the thing works like new... However I have also found that if the heating element goes bad then that also can mess things up bad... So I would buy new spray arms, and also check out the heating element to make sure it is working... Here is a tip that will help you with the online buying...
