Dishwasher filling correctly?

We just bought a whirlpool gu2700 dishwasher and installed it ourselves. it ran very long cycles and we realized the dishes were not coming clean. we found that a valve in our kitchens plumbing was restricting the water flow to the dishwasher. that is fixed and we have great water pressure to the machine now. but i do not know if the machine is filling properly. the water entering the machines tub is at a much lower pressure and only fills recessed hole in the center of the machines floor (where the sensors and drain are) and does not fill the entire floor of the tub. Is the water supposed to fill the floor of the tub when the cycle starts?

Dissassemble the fill valve and verify that the plastic screen is clean. If so, look undr the screen and remove the black rubber washer (but leave the white plastic restrictor in place).

Re: dishwasher filling correctly?

John, the dishwasher has a timed fill, make sure you are using 3/8 inch line. If you are using 1/4 inch, that would be your problem. The fill should be just below the heating element. If you are using the 3/8 inch line, the next suspect would be the fill valve itself. Make sure nothing is kinked, Catriver.

New Whirlpool Dishwasher filler overflows.

New Whirlpool Dishwashers will NOT accept the same "volume" of water that was desired by the same products of 25 years ago. Therefore the old 3/8" ID copper supply is too large and will overflow the tub filler/aireator (out the air vent holes). I just installed a new dishwasher supply kit consisting of a new 3/8" OD stainless braded hose with an ID of about 1/4". This delivers less volume than that recommended (in the installation manual) and therfore does restrict the flow a bit. However, the flowrate is adequate and the new dishwasher now works perfectly with no water overflow on the floor . . .

Ok. Mine has started working again somewhat. I ran a rinse cycle and the pump motor started working again. I then drained it, and started a regular cycle and it's working again for now. The motor still does not sound right though.
