42U is the most common height for computer racks. U is a unit of measurement which equals 1.75 inches. so 42U means that it is 73.5 inches, which is a little over 6 feet (6' 1.5")

I have a whirlpool dishwasher DU920PFGZ0 and the detergent dispenser door doesn't open all the way to release the soap

Is there a tall dish/cookie sheet/pan blocking the dispenser door from opening fully? Check inside the rack of the dishwasher to see where the dispenser door lines up.

My dishwasher is not working water is making to the dishwasher and is getting pumped out but it is not going through the jets

There's aspray arm at the bottom of your dishwasher--it may have a tall spray tubemounted to the center of it. There may also be a spray arm located directlybeneath the upper rack of dishes and/or above the upper rack. If debris is blocking the holes inthe spray arms where the water comes out, it could cause cleaning problems.Regularly inspect each of the spray arms and clean out the holes as necessary.

Soap dispenser will not open during cycle

I have the same dishwasher, have for about 2 years. It took me about a month to figure this out... But, you cannot run it with the flatware rack hanging on the bottom dish rack, you have to move it to hang on the door and you cannot have anything in the compartment under the soap dispenser that is tall enough to block it from opening. Annoying design for sure!

My 2004 GMC Yukon has a roof rack, but came without cross pieces. I purchased some that fit, but cannot get them on. Can you guide me to a manual with instructions to install them?

Everything I'm reading indicates there are "rack fitment points" where you will have the room to insert the cross bars. I'd get a tall ladder and look carefully along the entire rail and maybe feel with your fingers for a point that is slightly different. That should be the place you can insert the slats.

How do you fit the upper spray arm to the back of the dishwasher

The upper spray arm does not fit on the back of the dishwasher. There is a separate "Extra Tall Item Sprinkler" piece (about a 3-4" round gray piece that looks like a shower head) that mounts in the back of the dw.
Note that this option is only to be used with the top rack removed (i.e., for washing tall items in the lower rack). Refer to page 37 of the Use & Care Manual that came with your dishwasher.

An extra part inside the dishwasher

I have a Bosch dishwasher with the same "mystery" part. According to my manual,this part is an Extra Tall Item Sprinkler (select models). Apparently, if you are loading in extra tall items, you take out the top rack and insert this part into the top rack spray outlet (located a the back of the dishwasher). Turn it clockwise to lock it into position. Put your extra tall items in the bottom rack. Hope this helps!

Dishwasher leaking from top of door

The round hole with a grate on it located mid-way up the right-hand side inside the dishwasher must not be blocked by any tall items in the lower dish rack.
