Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers

16 year old whirlpool dishwasher model no. DU8950XY-0

16 year old whirlpool dishwasher dumps water out of the door occasionally. It has happened twice in the last three weeks. Will flood the kitchen very rapidly as if there is a catastrophic failure of several components at the same time. I am also a plumber and have checked the water connections which are fine. Thanks for any solutions you can offer..Joe

Sounds like it is a bad door seal. Recommend replacing the door seal and making sure the door is shutting square and not bent.

SOURCE: whirlpool dishwasher drainage problem..

This sounds like a bad timer. The timer is what tells the pump to drain at specified times. If it gets a bad contact, that timed cycle won't happen.

PS: Do you know for sure that the drain is occurring in mid-cycle? If not, you may just have an obstruction in the drain and/or anti-siphon valve (where the hose connects under the dishwasher.

SOURCE: won't turn on

The door switch is definitely not the problem if the indicator lights are not coming on. These lights are supposed to come on when the door is open.
The problem is 1 of 3 things:
1) No power to outlet that DW is plugged into;
2) Bad connection where power cord is connected to dishwasher (see very bottom front, under kick panel)
3) Some problem internal to the DW (eg., bad switch, shorted wire, etc., )
Our SHX46A is definitely having problem 3, but Bosch's manual gives zero help. So, off to find more info online or, lastly, to call Bosch repair person. Sigh.

SOURCE: Dishwasher will not drain

Hello Tom_Simmers,
Here is a link with exploded views and parts lists for your dishwasher for reference however based on your description, have you made sure you don't a blockage in the check valve? That's part of the pump drain assembly. http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php

You may also have a problem with the pump itself so the documentation on the website will help you evaluate that.
In many instances, its just a blockage of food byproducts inline with the drain system so chances are thats what you will find.. Good Luck on that.
Regards,
Rick

Hello Tom,
Glad that you were able to find something out of place in the check valve ( like the gasket) which in turn was restricting the ball in that check valve from being in the right position. I'd be willing to bet that your problem is solved..
Regards,
Rick

Dishwasher will not turn on,


OK check Fuses/Breaker.
Check there is actually power to the outlet, try another appliance in the actual outlet.
Try this below...
Ok so your dishwasher won't do anything... it justs sits there and "Hums" you can't make it respond to any controls, and the ONLY way to Stop it. is to unplug the unit, replugging back in it simply "Hums" again and will do nothing.
Now this happens because, the STOP Button, is pressed and the "Door Opened", during the Wash Cycle.This should NOT be done. You should NEVER TURN IT OFF MID-CYCLE. you should instead, Simply, pull on the handle, to Open the door, the system will take care of everything, after, you close it,and pick up where it left off. The turning OFF, makes the machine "Think" that a New Cycle, is going to be done, before the old one is finished, and resets itself to do it all again. But it still has water, that's not meant to be there so it must dump it out.
Now, the FIX. Take the Dishwasher, out, and tip over on it's side, tip to about a 45' angle. Water will come out from underneath, this is from a small "Overflow" reservoir. this reservoir has an "Anti-Flood" switch. The removing of this water will "Reset" this Switch, and allow the dishwasher to work again.
So what happens, is this, when the STOP button is pressed Mid-Cycle, the machine must "Dump" whatever water is still in the machine, into the "Overflow Reservoir". This water then causes the Anti-flood switch to jam, and this stops the machine, until it is reset,by the above method,


If none of the above work etc, then my advise is to get a serviceman to call. Contact a Whirlpool agent, and when they call, ask for a "quote" before allowing any repair work to be undertaken.

I have whirlpool dishwasher model dp840 it is one week old it not draining water everything else seems to work


Where is the drain hooked up? is there an obstruction where it drains into sink. You will have to remove drain line where it runs into drain under sink and see if line is clear. I have seen where they dump into the disposal and they never removed the disposal plug

The cover of the detergent dispenser does not latch properly and will flip open. The dishwasher is 6 years old and I think we need to replace the dispenser assembly but don't know how to take it off the...


I've posted this before. The latch just needs a good cleaning. In the past, something placed in the washer kept the door from opening properly, which caused detergent to dry under the latch. This has happen several times until I figured it out. Don't block the opening with tall objects. Soak or repeatedly apply hot water and a little brushing and it will be fixed. It doesn't happen anymore.
