Question about Whirlpool DU1055XTSQ Built-in Dishwasher
I have major corrosion on the red wire connector to the post that connects the heating element. The sleeve of the molded plastic tub where the connection is made has melted slightly.
The is where the heating element passes through the unit and connects to the electrical lead (the one with the red wire). You can see where the water is dripping from inside the clear plastic sleeve that goes over the connection post.
These seems like a manufacturing defect, likely a faulty seal?
What can I use to seal from the inside of the tub so it does not leak any more? Silicon?

decrete, you want to get down to the chopper and screen. If the screen is plugged up with gunk there won't be enough pressure to reach the top spray arms. Check out the posted pics. Remove the lower spray arm. Rotate the rear feed arm to the right until it unsnaps from the tube going up the back. See the 4 torq screws holding the filter on. Remove them. Lift the filter up. Now you will see the chopper inlet cover. 1 torq screw holding it in. Lift it up and there's the chopper and screen. Catriver..post back

SOURCE: Water Leak
is the pump gray or white? if it is gray then replace it.look where the pump mounts to the ,otor and see if there is a black line coming from the middle.this is probably where your leak is.
just change the pump.

Replace the water inlet valve. That is where the hoses connect.

my repairman contacted whirlpool about my washing machine staying on
wash.. to his surprise.. and mine.. and his co=workers.. this is the answer,
it worked.. and we have never heard this before.
In your original istallation booklet it tells you to let the dishwasher run til its complete
the first time you use it as it may rinse twice... my original installation man told me this also.
however.. if you suffer a "blip" in your electricity.. it could put the little dishwasher "brain"
out of whack.. it can run as long as 3 to 4 hours on wash to reset itself.. if you stop it
(like others have mentioned.. and which I did also).. it doesn't complete the reset and it
will attempt to do it the next time..
answer?.. just let it go once as unnerving as this is.. it works.. They did mention that
if it went to 5 hours.. call your repairman because you need a new mechanism.
