You will have 2 pipes and a flex, Or 1 pipe 1 flex and a connection for a inlet pipe.
Connect the gray, larger pipe to the waste out let(drop in a stack or connect to a "spiggot", then connect the smaller pipe to the water inlet, you can usually connect to the washing machines inlet using a "y" piece, remembering to shut off the water before disconnecting. Then plug in the flex and away you go.(remembering to turn the water back on and a quick check for any leaks)

The dryer for the dishes on the whirpool doesn't come on


My God? If you had it installed yesterday.....1) read the manual. 2) try again and 3) Call store you bought it from and/or Whirlpool for warranty Service Call.
Why if you bought something new would you post here for a obvious operation or Warranty performance issue?

I'm trying to install a new mount in my whirpool dishwasher. The spray arm does not turn freely and is hitting the dish basket.


The screw types rarely give problems - so I'm presuming it's the clip type with plastic prongs.

First make sure the replacement part is the same as the old. It should press - fit with a click when in position.

Make sure the back supply tube is in the correct position and not lifted out too much.

Whirpool dishwasher does not go into wash cycle


you will need to replace the control bd. if it is not washing. I think that it is probably just filling and not starting the washing process and this would be a bad sump/mtr. assy.

Whirpool dishwasher


Ours does the same thing. I have been suspicious that it is the melting plastic stuff used in the dishwasher tabs that the wife uses.

Let me know if you use that same tab to wash you dishes.

We dont have any problem with the stuff getting on dishes (and we use all white diner type dishes.).

Does Not Drain ... We Don't even Use it


I know you're probably not needing this anymore, but for anyone else who has a similar problem...

Your dishwasher is installed wrong. You should never get water back into it from washing dishes in the sink. (of course - unless it is installed wrong) The "drain air gap" that you should see on top of your sink is to prevent water from back-flowing into your dishwasher. Sometimes plumbers put in a "stand pipe" (a pipe that goes way up in your sink cabinet underneath, but just is actually the pipe from the dishwasher and they loop it up higher than the bottom of the sink level in the cabinet. That way if you see water in your sink, most likely you can figure out why it is backed up before it gets higher than the stand pipe and goes into your dishwasher. Since you don't see the air gap device on top of the sink then I'm guessing whoever installed your dishwasher either put in a stand pipe and didn't put it up high enough, or more likely didn't put one in at all and therefore you are getting back-flow into the dishwasher.

587 Doesn't work well


AS ABOVE SUGESTION ...PROBUBLY NOT GETTING ENOUGH WATER. NOT LIKELY THE FAULT OF THE DISHWASHER PROBUBLY SEDIMENT FROM THE WATER PLUGED THE INLET SCREEN OF THE FILL VALVE. MANY TIMES THE MOVING OF A FLEXIBLE PLUMBING LINE BRAKES LOOSE ANY SEDIMENT AND DEPOSIT DURING THE INSTALATION OF A NEW DISHWASHER WHICH IS WHY MOST ADVISE REPACING THIS SMALL FLEXIBLE LINE WHEN INSTALLING A NEW DISHWASHER. YOU WILL HAVE TO DIS ASSEMBLE VALVE TO CLEAN SCREEN ...IF YOU BOUGHT THE PROTECTION AGREEMENT OR HAD SEARS INSTALL IT THEY SHOULD COVER A SERVICE CALL TO CLEAN THE VALVE.

I have this same model Smeg dishwasher. 1 = Soak - pans and dishes awaiting completion of the load. 2 = Strong - Very dirty pans and dishes dirt dried on. 3 = Normal - Normally dirty pans and dishes. 4 = Rinse - Dishes requiring "refreshing". If you would like a full copy of the user manual, send your address to "brockjack@g-node.com.au" and I will photocopy our manual for you.
