Whirlpool Gold Dishwasher

My whirlpool GU1500 dishwasher is not cleaning properly, it runs through the completee cycle but does not clean anything. We just had the pump replaced and still no clean dishes. How can I check to see if the motor blades are turning? Could the motor be bad?

Re: Whirlpool Gold Dishwasher


Did you get your Whirlpool dishwasher working. Mine quit cleaning so I took the lower spinner out, pulled the motor and pump assembly (very easy to do) then cleaned out the strainer which was full of glass and debris not allowing the water to recirculate. Works like new now. Cost....$0.00. Clean dishes...priceless.

Whirlpool Gold dishwasher not cleaning dishes. It runs through the cycles and rinses, but dishes are not completely clean.

I had a similar problem with my last two dishwashers, with food still left on the dishes at the end of the cycle. What a nightmare. The most recent dishwasher is new, now the problem is solved. Here's what the manufacturer told me. Pour white vinegar (approximately 2 cups) into the dishwasher and run through the cycle. Buy some Cascade Complete and only use this type of soap for the dishwasher. Make sure you run a cup or two of the white vinegar through the dishwasher cycle once a week. My dishes are now clean and clear!!

My Whirlpool dishwasher is stuck on the clean cycle?

If it continues to run without any alarms or flashing light, I would assume the heater is packed up. It is looking for the water to reach the correct wash temperature.

Try to run on the cold water cycles and see if there is any difference.

I have a Whirlpool gold dishwasher. It may be 6-7 years old. It is cleaning properly. Any suggestions?

I think you want to mean it is not cleaning properly..

First perform a vinegar cycle wash in the dishwasher. Pour a cup of vinegar into the bottom of the dishwasher. Keep the temperature at the highest setting possible and perform a wash cycle.Then start using a dishwasher most probably that would solve the problem. If this does not solve the problem then there must be some parts worn out or faulty creating the problem.

There are many probable causes of failure .

To clean the dishes the water temperature is essential.It the water is not hot then the dishes will not be cleaned properly.So check the water temperature.

Also check the filter in your dishwasher.Clean the filter if there is accumulation of debris in the filter

If you are in an hard water zone , then try reducing the amount of detergent used and then try cleaning the dishes

Hear a humming sound when the dishwasher turned on. The panel seems to be ok. Model is GU1500'

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

If the hum sound is coming from the bottom panel then it is the moto that has gone bad and needs replacement. However, if you hear the sound from the control then it can be due to a bad relay in the control and it is recommended to replace the control completely. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Water does not drain out completely on our model GU1500 Whirlpool Gold dishwasher. This happens about every 4th time we run it. Water is cloudy and about 2" deep in bottom after cycle ends.

there is a PROBLEM with the is most likely clogged,in which case,it must be removed and cleaned.the pump might also be faulty,and so must be replaced.

Whirlpool Gold GU1500,water leaks under the door on to the floor

Examine the door gasket. If it is crushed or caked with detergent use some vinagar and a sponge to clean it up.
