Whirlpool GU1500 Quiet Partner is REally Loud

My 3 year old Whirlpool has not been the greatest to us...about 1.5 years ago, the soap dispenser corroded and started leaking. I ended up getting Whirlpool to send the replacement part (and I installed it)...Now, all of a sudden during the wash cycle, the motor has become super loud. It sounds like the motor is going out, but I find that hard to believe on a 3 year old dishwasher. I am not very handy, but I can follow instructions pretty well. Suggestions on what to look for?

Thanks in advance!

My 5 year old GU1500 suddenly started making a very loud noise during the wash cycle. It sounds like the motor, and also produces a burning smell. Before I buy and replace the motor, I want to make sure it’s not a problem with a component driven by the motor. Has anyone had this problem before?
Thanks,
Rob...

SOURCE: Soap film on dishes

Hard water "filming" is caused primarily by the higher deposit content in hard water clogging up the jets and nozzles. Therefore, there is not the normal pressure for washing or rinsing. This can be eliminated by turning on the dishwasher, while it is empty, and waiting for it to fill and go into it's wash cycle. They open the door and add 3 cups of white vinegar and finish running through the cycle. This will open the nozzles and jets to their full capacity. After that, use a rinse aid for sure.

SOURCE: Dishwasher Making Loud High Pitched Noise.

A loud high pitch whine while running the dishwasher means that there is something caught in the chopper assembly. To get to the chopper assembly you need to take the racks out and take the pump apart from the inside of the dishwasher. The chopper assembly looks like a metal grate with holes in it. And it might not even be stuck in the grate but somewhere in the pump area due to the water being pumped out, so the best idea is to take the whole thing apart and clean everywhere. However I do not recommend doing this unless you are completely certain you will remember where the screws and gaskets go, otherwise you risk damaging your pump or house from a leak or improper installation. You have been warned.

Yes, you can buy the whole assembly and replace it. Replacing the assembly should fix your problem.

SOURCE: my whirlpool dishwasher soap dispenser is

I bet your clumps of soap began with the beginning of the use of a different DW detergent powder.

Try this (trust me) Go buy a box of brand name Dishwasher powder (e.g. Electrosol or Cascade) Use it for two loads of dishes and report your results back here. OK?

SOURCE: Liquid soap mistakenly used - bubble explosion

Fill the detergent cup with fabric softener for a full cycle. Don't be alarmed if bubbles seep out.

Finish off with a white vinegar wipedown of the insides if it still feels soapy.

I have a whirlpool Gold quiet partner III that is about 14 years old. It is no longer getting dishes consistently clean.Is it something fixable or is it time to get a new one?Could it be cleaned out?


There are many places and parts for dirt to remain after washing. Clean all parts as per manual. Spray inside with vinegar and lemon juice, place tablespoon of bi-carb soda in dispenser and put through cycle without dishes

My 6 year old Whirlpool dishwasher is loud


This is a bad wash pump. Looking at about $175 for just the sump assembly. You could do it yourself, but unit would need to be uninstalled.

Not cleaning properly


Our Whirlpool Quiet Wash plus is 20+ years old and was on its way out the door because of erratic white residue, spotting, and film.  Nothing worked: vinegar, different soaps, more soap, less soap. Today I opened it up and started digging behind covers and checking the insides - multiple places were clogged with a soap/mineral film - ugly! I sprayed the insides with Restore 4 (a tile cleaner) and scraped and brushed and broke loose the hidden deposits. The only thing I didn't open was the sump pump - but now know how to do so. (thanks FixYa) Then I added about a 1/2 quart of vinegar and ran it full hot on the heavy wash cycle, added more vinegar between each cycle and let it dry.  It looks super inside - the gunk is gone.  I am now washing a load of glasses and am hoping for the best!

Cannot unscrew cap on rinse aid compartment in door of Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner III


the cap doesn't come off, you just have to open the door all the way. then, when you pour the rinse aid into the dial area, it will get sucked into the dispenser. but if the door isn't open all the way it won't go anywhere and will overflow on you.
