Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers
Sometimes because of water pressure the inlet valve doesn't allow enough water into the machine to satisfy the float switch so you don't have enough water to completely clean the dishes.Manufacturers install whats called a flow washer to control the flow of water into the machine in case of too much water pressure. What you can do is remove the flow washer from the valve itself to allow enough water to enter the machine. The other problem could be that the water is not hot enough. Some water heaters are set to 120 deg. to save on utility bills. To clean effectively the dishwasher water temp needs to be at least 160 deg. which is the temp restaurants use to clean and sterilize their dishes. Check to see if your dishwasher has a water heat switch on the control panel that will increase the water temp to 160 deg. If not just turn up your water heater temp. To check water flow just open the door when it is finished with the first fill right before it starts washing and check to see if the float switch is satisfied. You can check it by just pushing down on it and listening for a click. Either one of these should solve your dirty dish problem. Good luck
