Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers

1 Answer

My whirlpool GU2455XTSS1 is not draining. What might be the problem.

I have taken out internal parts to see if there is a jam no luck, then replaced the drain pump, also without success. Tried a rinse cycle and it ended up doing the same thing, leaving water in the bottom. Also tried to do the drain/cancel multiple times. Now i am stumped as to what might be wrong.

First have you installed a new garbage disposal unit in the sink if so does the drain hose for the dishwasher go to the garbage disposal unit? if it does then you may have to remove a knockout tab in the pipe on the garbage disposal. its there because not everyone uses a dishwasher. if that not it check the drain hose for a grease clog get a long wire run it through the hose and try to clear it. Check the filter inside the dishwasher it needs to be clean to suck the water out. Also on the left side of the unit is a housing that the drain hose goes to befor going to the main drain that could be clogged. If the pump has power and runs and hoses are clear im not sure what going on without see it.

Grinding noise in spin cycle


It sounds like the drain pump needs replacing, its bearings have failed or there is something from the wash jammed in it. But before you buy a new one, get the machine checked by an expert in case lots of parts are damaged.

What causes Cabrio washer to get unbalanced in spin cycle?


Try making sure that your draining hose isnt jammed all the way down the hole. When you installed it the u shaped accessory was needed for the draining hose. Try pulling the draining hose out...curve the front and zip tying it to your cold water valve. This will allow it to drain properly and not get water push back into the drum causing it to be unlevel

The machine not draining the water.and some certain point the thing{where you choose the programme}keeps turning around without stoppingt at all


If there is a drain issue, sometimes there is an obvious solution. Check the drain hose for any kinks, as well as checking any lint filters in or on the drain hose. Is there a lint sock on the end that's full? Perhaps the drain line itself is plugged. You will want to make sure that the house drain system is not backed up or plugged. Always make sure that the washer drain hose is above the level of water in the drain tub. Some Whirlpool/Kenmore washers make use of a side-check valve near the tub outlet which may get clogged. A standpipe should be at least 1 1/4 inches in diameter, and never seal a drain hose into a standpipe. This can lead to back-siphoning. You also want to make sure that the standpipe is less than 96 inches in height. Pump problems show various symptoms. Sometimes the pump will lock up and seize. If the motor is running, it will continue to try to turn the pump. In the case of belt-driven pumps, the belt may break or burn through. The pulley may shear off. If there is enough tension on the belt, and the motor continues to try to turn it, you may wind up with a seized motor as well. The pump itself may have seized bearings, be jammed by clothing or another object; or the impeller blades may be broken off. The usual fix is to replace the pump.
If you think your pump may be jammed, drain out your tub and remove the hoses. Look inside the hoses and see if there are any obstructions. Feel around inside the pump inlets for anything that may be jamming the pump itself. You can also use long-nosed pliers to feel around inside the pump for any items that may be causing a jam. If you haven't found a jam, and you still believe there may be a jam in the pump, you can completely remove the pump from the washer and inspect it more closely.
Occasionally, transmission gears may become worn, or some other internal part may go bad. Some older washer models have an electric-mechanical shifter. If it won't shift, it's best to call a professional appliance repair person to address this issue. If your transmission is leaking oil, there are really only two options at this point, either run it until it dies completely, or replace it now.

Drainage blocked on Whirlpool ADG 450 slimline inbuilt dishwasher, have taken out filter and cleaned it. Still blocked.


two things to check
if drain is plumbed nito a spigot on the sink trap, check that ther spigot and drain hose are not blocked - this is very common
also see if you can get to the drain pump and check there is nothing jamming the impellor. also if you have access to a multimeter, check if the drain pump is powered up
