Whirlpool Quiet Partner II Noise and Dirty Dishes...

I have had a Whirlpool Quiet Partner II for about 2 years. Recently (1 or 2 months ago) the dishwasher makes a whirring/humming noise right after it fills with water and through the entire cycle. At times it sounds like the noise pulses slightly. Now, as well, the dishes (especially the glasses) are not getting clean and have small food pieces on them. I have disassembled the dishwasher and check the chopper area which is fine.

Does anyone have an idea of what could be the problem? I saw something about checking the "flapper valve" and possibly cleaning the waste outlet. Are these possibilities or should I look for something else? Thanks...

SOURCE: Whirlpool Gold quiet partner III, leaves dirty, greasy dishes

Ifixall is correct. I also learned several things with the apartment buildings I maintain.

1. the screen or pump trap must also be cleaned regularly to make sure there is no debris, food etc stuck in there.

2. The spray arms must be free of debris or obstructions.

3. Jet dry solution must be filled or has some solution in it.

4. Water must be hot

5. Scraping dishes and prewash them before putting them into dishwasher.

6 install water softner sometimes helps. (I don't know how true this is, since I am unable to do this in our buildings)

7 drain line must be picked up, or secured to prevent backwash.

8. MAKE sure that the lower rack is not obstructing the sprayer arms. Sometimes overloading dishwashers will cause dishes not being cleaned properly.

9. if all else fails, a service technician can come out to determine if the dishwasher is operating properly.

SOURCE: Loud humming noise when dishwasher is filling up with water

your model is pretty new. just so you know your warrenty is 1 year parts and labor. 2 years on parts. it should not cost that much money.

there are two components that start before the circulation pump.(wash noise you hear)

first sounds you hear will be the drain pump. usually rattling noises if something is in it but it can make a hum noise if something is jamming the drain propeller up. which is accessible with a T20 torx driver. take the filters out and the mesh filter. and unscrew the screw in the base towards the left. pull out whatever is lodged.

the other humming sound can come from the next component that activates is the watervalve. make sure you dont have a kinked water intake line. otherwise its a bad valve. i have had to change a few of those water valves out already but not for a hum noise on your model. you have a new style water valve. when brands make new parts we get problems fast sometimes..

SOURCE: Whirlpool dishwasher chopper blade

you can replac the chopper as a seperate part, but will quickly clog, and destry ohter parts of the unit if removed. dont take this the wrong way but if you have a garbage disposer already rinse the dishes better to avaid further clogging of chopper

SOURCE: Maytag Quiet Series 300 dishwasher,

Our control panel is fine. For now. (The machine is only 3 months old). This is our problem--and I haven't yet seen this complaint at all over the internt: The lower wash arm is getting stuck on the bottom rack and stopping immediately. This seems to be a design flaw. The bottom rack is just built too low. A service man was out once. He tightened the wash arm. Didn't work. The service department at the dealership is now ignoring our subsequent calls!! So I wonder if the "not cleaning" problem you have is because of this.

SOURCE: my whirlpool dishwasher soap dispenser is

I bet your clumps of soap began with the beginning of the use of a different DW detergent powder.

Try this (trust me) Go buy a box of brand name Dishwasher powder (e.g. Electrosol or Cascade) Use it for two loads of dishes and report your results back here. OK?

I have the Whirlpool Quiet (??) Partner II. My


Have this same problem with my Whirlpool DU1145XTBA. Found out that when you start the unit, it fills with water. If the water does not rise above the filter mesh in the bottom center of the unit then the pump doesn't have enough water to supply pressure to the upper sprayer. Had to replace the Flow Meter. It tells the unit how much water to supply to the unit.
