The new garbage disposer comes with a plastic cap in the drain port. Disassemble the drain pipe assembly and remove the cap/plug.

It fills with water and nothing happens

It can be disheartening to open your Whirlpool Gold dishwasher and find that the device is full of dirty water that has not drained from a previous cycle. Although you certainly would rather have no problems, having a problem with the washing machine not draining as well as it should is one of the easiest-remedied problems to have. Fixing this problem doesn't require you to pay a repairman; you should be able to do it yourself.
Open the cabinet under the sink.

  • 2 Unscrew the clamp that is holding the drain hose to the garbage disposal valve.
  • 3 Insert a screwdriver into the valve opening and tap the handle of the screwdriver with a hammer. Doing this will remove the knockout plug from the opening. The knockout plug is designed to be used for garbage disposals that are not connected to dishwashers. People often fail to remove the knockout plug when installing a dishwasher to the disposal.
  • 4 Insert tongs into the top of the garbage disposal opening and remove the knockout plug from the device.
  • 5 Replace the drain hose and screw the clamp back into place.

    Whirlpool quiet partner 1 won't drain all the way suddenly



    (A) Clean cloth(s)
    (B) Wrench (if necessary)

    Whirlpool brand dishwashers come in black, brown, stainless steel or white finishes and a variety of sizes as well. Most Whirlpool dishwashers are energy efficient, and many have features such as a sanitizing rinse, enhanced sound effects, large capacity tubs and adjustable shelves and racks. However, none of these features will help users much if the dishwasher is not draining. While this issue may require professional repair, some troubleshooting steps may help determine if there is a relatively simple cause for the problem.

    1 Verify that the Whirlpool dishwasher has not lost power due to a power failure or motor overload. Wait a few minutes to see if the motor automatically resets and resumes operation. Reset the circuit breaker or fuse if necessary.

    2 Press or select "Start" to resume the cycle if the dishwasher was stopped mid-cycle. Choose a new drain cycle if necessary to remove excess water from the unit.

    3 Turn off the dishwasher and unplug it from power. Examine the connection between the dishwasher and the garbage disposer, usually located underneath the kitchen sink. Make sure the disposer knockout plug was taken out between the two.

    4 Run the garbage disposer in the kitchen sink to remove potential blockages.

    5 Remove objects that may be blocking the drain on the dishwasher. Clean out the drain hose at the rear of the dishwasher.

    Machine won't drain. I have gone through an entire cycle.

    Take hose of garbage disposal and see if it drains into 5 gallon bucket. If no drain, hose is plugged. If drains, garbage disposal port is plugged.

    My Whirlpool Quiet Partner III is collecting dirty water after the garbage disposal has run. Is this problem the dishwasher or garbage disposal?

    The drain hose under the sink needs to be tied up,above the point where it enters the drain pipe or disposal,water is feeding back into the unit,run the disposal more often also this helps prevent this from happening.

    My quiet partner 4 will no longer drain, I recently replaced my garbage disposal & the problem began after that.

    There is a plug you have to remove on the garbage disposal where you hook up the washer drain hose.

    Check the instructions with the disposal.

    You'll have to deinstall the garbage disposal, remove this plug and reinstall.

    Water not draining whirlpool quiet partner ii

    Remove the drain line where it hooks into the disposal. See if the plug, which must be removed to let water thru, is still in there. I ran into this on a service call a few years back. Removed to plug and voila! Hope this helps!
