Question about Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Whirlpool Sound During Drain

The 2400XTPT cycles properly and works normally until the drain cycle starts. When draining first starts there is little noise but as the water is emptied from the unit the sound becomes unusual from that of when it was first installed. It only makes the sound when draining. The sound is not so much a grinding as it is the sound of a defective impeller or bad bearing. With the kick panel off I can reach and feel the drain pump and feel vibrations matching the sound. I highly suspect something is wrong with the drain pump. How difficult is it to replace the drain pump on this unit? And do you agree with my idea as to what the problem may be? There appears to be an electrical lead to this drain pump. Just wondered if the lead could be pulled during this noise to see if it is indeed the drain pump. What I really need is a master repair manual for this particular Whirlpool dishwasher.

Re: Whirlpool Sound During Drain

Yes, you can pull one of the pump's leads to find whether the noise comes from the pump. You should unplug machine's power cable first and be sure that the disconnected wire is isolated. Before replacing the pump look that it clean from any foreign object/ Good luck!

Why is my whirlpool dishwasher making a loud noise during drain, wash and rinse cycles?

They can be complicated to re-assemble. Best solution is to video the procedure (if you have a video camera) during disassembly and make notes and diagrams to orient things properly and make sure the correct screws go back where they shoud. Takes more time, but you'll be glad you did, it will save you a lot of aggrevation in the long run.

Hi it is unlikely to be a fuse, more likely it is the pump, the outlet hose or the internal hoses are blocked.

There is still water on the dishes and in the dishwasher after the heated drying cycle. Not a lot but enough to wet the kitchen floor. What can we do?

check the kitchen drain is clear - looks like the drain cycle is not working efficiently.

Also make sure the filters at the base of dishwasher are clear.

Try a short cycle (like rinse only) and see if water drains at the end. If problem is occuring only during the normal wash cycle, then drying fan may be the problem.

Doesn't drain after "normal cycle" is run

It does sound like you have a switch problem or like the knob is simply getting stuck. Try taking it off and cleaning it if possible. Most common hardware problems with draining you have water at the bottom and it will not drain no matter what untill you clean the drain hose or a valve. Good news is that it doesn't sound like an expensive fix. Good luck.

Whirlpool Dishwasher won't drain during normal cycle

As you say a clogged line or valve does not make sense.

Try running it without the heated drying and see if it empties or if the cancel button will work then.

The dishes should air dry quickly if you empty it and open the door.

It could be a defective thermostat allowing it to get too hot during the heat cycle

GE Nautilus won't drain after Rinse Cycle

Check disposer plug. If a garbage disposer has been recently installed, it is possible the disposer drain plug was not removed. The drain plug is a plastic piece in the disposer that blocks the hole where the dishwasher hose connects. Also check the hose connected to the disposal. Mine apparently had a kink in it. When I straightened the hose the dishwasher drained at full speed (I recently had a plumber re-route a hot waterline. He must has bent the hose). Hope this helps. If not go to the GE website. That's where I found my answer.
