You need to take the blades that spin out and clean them off they have grime on them, is there water still in the bottom of the dishwasher when done> if so there is a plastic grate in the bottom rear of the dishwasher you need a 1/4 inch nut driver take the cover off and clean the debris out, there is a small stainless steele cutting blade in there be careful, it is to cut up foods that might not be washed off before putting dishes in the washer, also it is pressure that makes the detergent door open make sure you are getting full pressure comming into the waher, if non of this works the pump should be replace or it;s new dishwasher time

Hello ! We have a Whirlpool "Quiet Wash Plus" dishwasher that is approx 12yrs old. It has performed exceptional over this time, but notice recently it does not get the dishes as clean as before....


Is the water level ok? Check your water temp into the tub. It needs to be a minimum 120 degrees. Check for plugged spray arms. Do they turn freely? Does dishwasher drain completely?

Suddenly not getting dishes clean. Also drawers squeek when opening and closing


If your dishes arnt getting cleaned anymore most likley your sump motor assy needs to be replaced and the squeaking is prolly the door cables. Ive enclosed the part numbers you would need. Whirlpool has a 5 year warrenty on the sump motor. So maby whirlpool could send it to you and you would just have to get someone to install it. Save yourself some money. I hope this helped you any questions feel free to ask.

Does not get dishes etc. clean no matter how loaded. Must pre-wash by hand to get all food off or will not come out clean. Why have a dish washer? Is there any secret to how to get it to clean? Or do we...


Hi,

This is a good washing machine if it is working properly. There could be a couple things that have happened to make this not work well. You should not have to pre-wash or rinse anything, just scrape and load.

First thing is look below the bottom rack, there is a ring that looks kinda like a horseshoe. This is the heat element. If it is dark in color you are okay, if it is white then it may be coated in hard water deposits, if this is the case that means the inside of the pump and wash arms are plugged up too. If so all you need to do is clean it out using a dishwasher cleaner. Here are some good ones that you can find at the store near the detergents, follow the directions on the label. Lemi Shine, Rinse aid dishwasher cleaner, finish dishwasher cleaner, Glisten. Here is a link to a few more details on that.

The second thing and most common is a plugged sump, debris can restrict the water flow to the pump. I have put together some instructions on cleaning this out. Follow the link below and let me know if this helps.

I have a Whirlpool GU2600XTPS7 dishwasher - long washing time


You could have a couple things going on here. It could be either related to water temperature, build up in the sensor area or poor washing.

If the dishes are coming clean then you can discount the poor washing.

1st thing to try is clean out the dishwasher, a build up or residue can form on the sensors in the bottom and they can be fooled into thinking the water is cloudier or cooler than normal and it would take longer to heat the water and wash. Here is a link to some instructions I put together on how to clean it out.

Clean Out Procedures

2nd thing to try would be to run the hot water in the kitchen sink until it is hot before you start the dishwasher. By doing this the dishwasher will not have to slow down and pause while it is heating the water enough to clean the dishes

I have the Whirlpool Quiet Partner 1 the wash cycle starts and about 20 Min.'s into it the clean light starts flashing or the the start light, one or the other each time and it wont dry the dish's anymore...


If the clean light blinks 7 times thats you heating circuit. Test the heater with an ohm meeting to see if it has open. If so order the heater kit and it comes with the control board.
