Question about Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

I have a Whirlpool Gold GU98OSCGZ2 - low water level and dishes not clean

The top rack never comes clean and it appears the level of water is not filling up to where it should. The amount of water only circles the base of the spinner and that is all. I was told the amount of water should be higher. What could be causing the problem?

    Chris,

    I was told the same information from an appliance part store. When I had someone remove the valve it was free of corrosion. Can the valve still be the issue if there is no visible corrosion? Thanks.

    Chris,

    Your solution was the best. The inlet valve was the problem and now the washer is working great.



    Thanks a bunch,

The water inlet valve needs to be replaced. remove the bottom panel. the valve is located on the left side behind the panel. pretty easy to replace

Detergent not dissolving therefore some items not clean.


Jerry had two good First Checks with the water level and the temperature. Turn on the dishwasher and open the door after it completes filling and check the level and temperature.

A third possibility if the level and temperature are correct is that your dishwasher is not spraying enough water around. This could be due to a faulty pump, but more often I see a reduced spray from a clogged filter on the input to the pump.

You can check the amount of spray by waiting until it starts the wash cycle and open the door quickly. Water should be pouring off the upper rack and you should either have water come out of the door or have it be very close to spraying out.

Some dishwasher models have an easily accessible filter, others take some tools to get down to it.

Top Rack not cleaning


Hi,

Your concern "Top Rack not cleaning" often would indicate that the unit is not receiving sufficient water and the basin does not reach full level. Based on this, it may be required to check:
  • incoming water pressure;
  • water inlet valve;
  • incoming filter (if one is installed);
  • other areas to check are: heater (125 to 140 degress reached?, does the pump work? visually inspect the spray arm for any cracks, splits or possible leaks;
  • you may also want to verify that: the dishes are loaded properly and/or try a different detergent.
Additional insights may be sourced from here.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

We have a Whirlpool dishwasher 8575637 and the top wand seems to have stopped spinning-even butter is not getting cleaned off of the butter dish. We tested it by running it with an empty bottom rack a


Kristy
Sorry to hear about your problem. If a butter dish does not clean I expect little or no flow from either wash arms.

Need to check the water level after the fill cycle. Open the door after 90 seconds after starting the machine. The water should be about two inches deep.

For testing a small amount of water can be added by hand into the bottom of the wash tub to confirm that the wash problem is no or low water. Add water and continue cycle to determine if that is the root cause.

No or low water check the overfill float switch in the front bottom of the machine. It can get stuck in the up position. The float in the at rest position(down) operates a switch that allows the fill solenoid to actuate.

Second culprit for low water is the stop valve at the sink connection. The valve has a rubber seat that has known to come lose and plug the fill line to the dishwasher. This is a common failure of the valve. If so repair valve (repair of the valve does not require removal of the valve it can be done in place).

If Stop valve is OK and dishwasher is not filling check the water fill valve in the dishwasher. Also a common failure. It is located behind the lower front cover and requires someone who is qualified to service. A replacement would be specific to your machine because of calibrated flow rates. Low water could be an indication that the screen in line at the valve is plugged.

If water level is OK than I would check for plugged water filter screen or pump inlet.

Good Luck

Hi

If the top rack of the dishwasher doesn't get clean, check your appliance to see if you can fix the problem.
First check the spray Arms to make sure the holes in the spray arms are free and clear of debris. Your dishwasher should have several spray arms, including one at the bottom of the tub, one under the top rack, and possibly a third spray arm on the top of the tub. Sometimes food and mineral deposits can block holes in the spray arms, preventing water from spraying effectively. If this occurs, warm some white vinegar and pour it into a spray bottle. Spray the holes with the vinegar and dislodge debris with a toothpick or large safety pin.

Then check to see if your dishwasher has clogged filters. Filters generally cover the drain valve area to catch debris as the water drains from the dishwasher. Many dishwashers have maintenance-free filters, but your dishwasher may have filters that need cleaning. Read your owner's manual before you perform any filter maintenance to avoid damaging your dishwasher.

Check your water temperature to make sure it's hot enough. Water that is under 120 degrees Fahrenheit may not be hot enough to clean dishes effectively. Turn your kitchen hot water tap on and wait until the water warms up completely. Fill a cup and measure the water temperature with a kitchen thermometer. If the water is less than 120 degrees Fahrenheit, turn your water heater up to 120 degrees.

Load the top rack properly. Place cups and bowls upside down in the rack and don't nest dishes because this can prevent water from reaching dishes. Don't overload the top rack. Instead, position each item so the dirty areas of the dishes will receive full contact with water spraying up from the main spray arm located beneath the top rack. Prevent items from hanging below the top rack, which could prevent the spray arm from rotating.

Is there special directions to put coolant in?


Welcome to FIxYa.com



How to Fill Coolant

If the coolant system has been flushed, first add 100 percent ethylene glycol in

the amount listed for the appropriate engine application. Then slowly add clean

water to the system until the level of the coolant mixture has reached the base-of

the radiator neck. Wait for two minutes and recheck the level of the coolant

mixture. add clean water if necessary to restore the coolant mixture level to the

base of the radiator neck

When refilling the engine cooling system, add three engine coolant supplement

sealant pellets, GM RN 3634621 or equivalent, and GM approved new Ethylene

Glycol Coolant DEX-COOL GM RN 9985809.

If the cooling system is being refilled ONLY (no flush), a 50 percent ethylene

glycol and 50 percent clean water mixture should be used to fill the system. Fill

the system until the level of the 50150 mixture has reached the base of the radiator

neck. Wait two minutes and recheck the level of the coolant mixture. add a 50/50

ethylene glycol water mixture as necessary to restore the coolant mixture level to

the base of the radiator neck.

Install the radiator cap making certain the arrows line up with the overflow tube.

Close all air bleeds. DO NOT over torque the air bleed valve. The air bleed valve is

made out of brass.

Fill the coolant reservoir with a 50 percent ethylene glycol and a 50 percent clean

water coolant mixture. The proper amount of this mixture to be installed into the

coolant reservoir is listed below:

Add 0.65 liters (0.68 quarts) of a 5010 mixture of ethylene glycol and clean water

to the coolant recovery reservoir.

CAUTION: The low coolant indicator lamp may come on after this procedure. After

operating the vehicle so that the engine heats up and cools down three times. if at

any time the "TEMP' warning indicator comes on. Immediate action is required.

Air bleed vent is at the thermostat house

Tiolet not flushing right. Water not coming down the side of the bowl when flushing and 90 percent of the water is gone from the bowl.


1- Check ports out under rim all round bowl.

2-Check tank fill level for required amount to with in 5/8" to top of over flow tube.

3-Make sure 1/4" fill tube is connected to over flow tube. From fill valve to overflow tube.

Below is a few details to go by I hope will be helpful for you to take care of this problem.


Under the rim of the bowl check the ports and make sure they are not stopped up. You can open them up with nail or pin to clean out ports.
Next check tank level and make sure the fill valve has a line run from it to top of the overflow tube. This line allows water to goe to bowl and tank to fill required amount needed.
Water in tank should be within 5/8" to top of over flow tube.

Our Whirlpool Quiet Partner III cleans the bottom rack fine, but the top rack does not seem to have any water pressure and thereby does not clean. Any solutions?

make sure the spray arm is not clogged in any way.
the other is simply replace the main wash motor
