Replacing drainage hose on Whirlpool dishwasher?

Hi there

I have a whirlpool GU 180 dishwasher. The drainage hose (a gray plastichose) has a hole in it, near to where it enters into the dishwasher. Sowhen the dishwasher is draining, water leaks out everywhere.

What do I do to fix this?

I need to replace the hose; but I see it goes inside the dishwasher -replacing this hose means (I guess) I need to disassemble the dishwasher. Andeven then, I don't know how this hose attaches to the internal plumbinginside the dishwasher.

Are there any instructions on what I need to do, and how to do it? Idon't want to take a trial-and-error approach here, of trying to guesshow to take it apart and how to fix it.

(Ordinarily I'd call the service guy, but right now I can't afford it,and this thing has been fixed and re-fixed so many times by him already...)

thanks

Just follow the hose to the other end, it goes under the dishwasher and it usually just clamped to the drain pump. Should be able to buy a replacement hose at repair clinic dot com. Installation is the reverse of removal, just pay attention to how the hose is routed, they need to be reinstalled the same way. Hope this helps.

Gu 120 es


there is a "smartclean" sensor that measures dissolved solids in the water in an attempt to shorten the washing cycle. however if the dishes have much food left on them, then the washer will continue to run untill it gets a "clean" reading, or it reaches the max run time (180 minutes). all energy star dishwasher require the dishes to be throughly rinsed before washing in the machine. trust me, i know how counterproductive this is.

Whirlpool dishwasher does not drain. Wash arm operates correctly


Check the drain hose under your sink make sure its not crushed or kinked if you have a garbage disposal the hose should go up into it at a 90 degree angle if not 180 degrees into your sink drain line

Dishwasher Whirlpool quiet partner 2 will not drain


Check your drainage hose going to the kitchen sink. It should be routed up to an air gap on kitchen sink, or ran to the highest point as possible under the kitchen sink counter and then slope down into the disposer or branch wye tailpiece on your drainage piping depending on what your drainage configuration is. Not going up to the highest point, or an air gap, before draining into your drainage piping allows the water inside the dishwasher hose to drain back into the unit.

Whirlpool gu1200xtls2 wont drain just stopped


Hello

your Whirlpool dishwasher stopped draining mid-cycle, check your circuit breaker or fuses. The cycle won't complete if the power is interrupted. Reset the circuit breaker if tripped, or change out any blown fuses. Fully close the dishwasher door, and restart the cycle if you opened up the door. If you have not used the dishwasher in a while, the motor may be stuck. Open up the main housing, and rotate the motor until it turns freely. You must replace the motor if it's corroded or won't move since it's unlikely that you can fix it.

Pump

The pump is located underneath the lower rack and spray arm. This component is responsible for pumping water out of the dishwasher once the cycle is complete. If the pump isn't working, verify that it is not clogged with debris. Use a toothpick or plastic utensil to remove food particles from it. Check the pump impeller. If a section of it is broken, get a new pump since the impeller is difficult to fix.

Clogs

Clogs in the air gap or drainage hose prevent water from leaving the tub. Clean these components and the water inlet filters, if dirty. Examine the drainage hose, and straighten it if it's kinked. If the hose is badly crushed, you must replace it. Unscrew the drainage hose from the dishwasher to clean it, but reattach it before you restart the cycle. Run the food waste disposer if it's connected to your Whirlpool dishwasher. Remove the knockout plug from the disposer if you have just installed the disposer or dishwasher.

Drain Valve/High Drain Loop

Whirlpool dishwashers have drain valves with an internal solenoid. This valve opens and closes to drain water out of the tub. If the drain valve is stuck, lubricate the lever, and remove any debris clogging the valve. Remove any objects that are preventing the drain valve from freely opening and closing. If the valve is not working properly, you must replace it. Always install a high drain loop to prevent water from the sink entering your dishwasher. Create a loop of the drainage hose that is at least 18 inches high. Attach this hose beneath a section of cabinetry.

I have a Whirlpool Gold Dishwasher Quiet Partner IV. GU Series. It has stopped working and there are no lights on the panel. We have checked the power supply and that is fine.


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Press and hold the AIR DRY/RINSE ONLY button to reset the control, if you have already tried this and it is possible that the door was opened while in cycle then the first thing that should be checked is the door switch/lock assembly. You can take a hair dryer and try to blow air on that, if the problem returns then replacing the door switch/lock assembly is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

DISHWASHER WILL NOT DRAIN EVEN AFTER WE PUSH THE CANCEL/DRAIN BUTTON. I DON'T KNOW WHETHER TO CALL A PLUMBER OR WHIRLPOOL REPAIR.


First of all, if you have been using the gel pacs...stop! They don't dissolve completely and cause a buildup. This happened to me and we replaced the hose and solved the problem (about $25). I also had to take apart some of the assembly and scrap off the powdered substance that solidified around the drainage holes. Good luck!
