You could have a couple things going on here. It could be either related to water temperature, build up in the sensor area or poor washing.

If the dishes are coming clean then you can discount the poor washing.

1st thing to try is clean out the dishwasher, a build up or residue can form on the sensors in the bottom and they can be fooled into thinking the water is cloudier or cooler than normal and it would take longer to heat the water and wash. Here is a link to some instructions I put together on how to clean it out.

2nd thing to try would be to run the hot water in the kitchen sink until it is hot before you start the dishwasher. By doing this the dishwasher will not have to slow down and pause while it is heating the water enough to clean the dishes

Sounds like the timer module is going bad. Might be getting moisture on contacts. That would explain why it works one time and not the next.Just trying to help!

Hello ! We have a Whirlpool "Quiet Wash Plus" dishwasher that is approx 12yrs old. It has performed exceptional over this time, but notice recently it does not get the dishes as clean as before....


Is the water level ok? Check your water temp into the tub. It needs to be a minimum 120 degrees. Check for plugged spray arms. Do they turn freely? Does dishwasher drain completely?

Hi karen_kinzer,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

The d/w was a recent purchase?

Then my advise to you is don't worry about it! The unit should be under warranty. It's time to make the call. Let the warranty repairman worry about it. If he can't fix it, he has the authority to condemn it and you'll get a new one. Anyway, this is one problem you should not have to worry about.

Feel free contact me again!
