Re: Broken dishwahser

Check to see if there is a waste basin at the bottom of your dishwasher. Some models have them and they require regular maintenance / cleaning every 6 months or so. If one does not exist, try to purchase one of the JetDry Dishwasher cleaner and set your dishwasher to run at its hottest (usually "pots and pans" or "extra hot") for about 2 cycles. That should clean the drain of the large food particles that have accumulated in the dishwasher drainage. Should the above not provide satisfactory results, you may want to try a VERY SMALL AMOUNT of drain cleaner in the middle of an empty cycle to try and remove the debris. (CAUTION: too much drain cleaner will damage the waste bin if not rinsed properly and render your dishwasher useless..please only do this at your own risk)

This is for a dishwasher 15 years old Whirlpool Model series 920. It is very hard to get the Normal button to work. Have to mash it really hard. Do we need to wait a few minutes for it to start?

If you're having problems to that degree. Either the parts are going to cost an arm and a leg, or will be unavailable. i used to work at the Harrisburg PA Sears Parts & Repair center. I know. You're better off replacing the whole dishwasher.

If you have power going to the dishwasher, meaning the breaker, switches, wiring and fuses in the home are okay, the most common cause for your symptoms is the thermal fuse.

The thermal fuse is a small disk shaped device that is behind the control panel on the right side it is snapped on to the electronic module. The part number for your model is W10258275

Hi, my whirlpool ADG7560 dish washer does not have any water passing through the spray nozzels, they are all clean, could this be a pump problem? the machine is only 3 years old

Yes , if the pump under the spray arm is broken and not spinning with the motor it won't spray. Need a different model number for more help.

Water on floor after Kenmore dishwasher runs

you could fix this, however the price of repair will be 1/2 of the price of a new dishasher.  I would suggest you buy a new oneand not waste money on a six year old dishwasher.  find a good scratch and dent model.

Get package of unsweetened limonade drink mix and put in machine and run a cycle, this will clean all parts of hard water deposits. Cascade powder is the manufactors choice, till they get ad space and samle giveaways

Model gu2700xtss1, upper rack not clean at all,

I am here for the exact same reason. Mine is less than 3 months old. This may be a recall item. I bought, and paid more for a kitchen aide for the name and reputation.....Where can I find the model number?

Model numbers that are worn or missing are hard to find. When you go to whirlpool's website you might find your dishwasher there, other wise it might not have them listed because it is obsolete.

One place to look is on the panel below your dishwasher door. In some cases it is stuck there, or somewhere else under the dishwasher.
I have seen them inside of the dishwasher housing (under the cabinet between cabinet and dishwasher.

Very rarely will you find the model numbers inside of the dishwasher doors. However according to Whirlpool, if you open your door, you will find a sticker or a riveted plate on the right hand side of the dishwasher's frame, near the seals.

One thing I suggest however once you have discovered the model number, write it down and put it someplace safe.

Good luck

Mine also started leaking. Element also too hot. Mine has a 20 year warrenty on the tub (which I was NOT aware of) Repairman came today and the whole tub unit and element will be fixed for free! Look in your whirlpool instruction book to see if yours is warrentied. BTW, my dishwasher is only three years old.
