Question about Dishwashers

Whirlpool chopper blade completely inaccessible

I would love SO VERY much to be able to even check the ''chopper blade'' for my whirlpool quiet partner gold dishwasher (which no longer cleans the top rack).

However, every site in the world gives the most nonsensical instructions which usually include a magic middle part that is never specified. Like: ''remove the screws, move that thing out of the way, then..... a few other things we can't describe but we'll give you these spec sheets which in no way describe the process nor even match what you have'' and then voila you can check the chopper blade.

Is there anyone capable of giving step by step, logical, simple instructions on how to disassemble what should be a straightforward mechanical assembly short of removing the entire machine and throwing it off of a balcony?

Please?

I've removed the arm. I've unscrewed the 800000000 completely unnecessary over-kill star screws that held the first bit of the contraption down. Then.... no visible screws, no nothing. It's just a giant lump of ridiculous nonsense that cannot be disassembled by anyone. At this point, on every message board, people magically find the chopper blade by just lifting out something.

THERES NOTHING THAT CAN BE LIFTED BY ANYONE ANYWHERE!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT THE HELL??????

I'm assuming someone somewhere with a sense of logic designed the thing? ahhahahahahahahaha. Someone somewhere with a sense of logic must know how to DISASSEMBLE this nightmare.

HELP ME BEFORE I TAKE A GIANT SLEDGEHAMMER TO THE THING. And please, for the love of all that is holy in the universe, do not link me to some ridiculous picture of the parts that in no way describes how they're held together. I've seen those. They might as well say that magic fairies live in there and hold all the parts together with their loving kindness. Because they show no screws, no directions for removing anything.... just a breakout of parts that nobody can access.

I have lost my mind. I am ready to become a violent sociopathic mass murderer.

Motor spins but blade doesn't


If there is a shaft sleeve available from Kitchen Aid you will need to replace that and most likely the chopping blade if there is any damage up inside it.

My Whirlpool Quiet Partner II will not drain at the end of the final cycle.


Hi
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Whirlpool quiet partner II top rack sprayer doesnt work


The top rack spray arm doesn't work because of low water pressure from the wash motor or it's clogged with debris.
If the top spray arm looks clear of debris, remove the lower spray arm and lower feed tube to access the wash motor. Remove the 4 torx screws and the filter (accumulator assembly). Remove the torx screw and the inlet protector that covers the chopper assembly. Make sure the chopper is not broken (broken chopper will fill with debris and block water flow). While holding the chopper blade, reach inside the "D" shaped opening on top of the motor and spin the wheel/motor by hand in each direction to make sure either the chopper gear or the motor gear that drives the chopper is not broken. Replace the chopper if necessary (part # 8268383). If the motor gear is broken, replace the sump and motor assembly (part # 8535150). Remove any debris from the sump area in the process.
You don't have to shut the power off to the dishwasher because the door will be open, but if you feel more comfortable, do so.
Good luck!

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

Could be a a couple different issues.. Not filling with enough water or food chopper broke or food chopper filter screen clogged.

Check water level:
Run the DW and wait for the main wash to start (water will fill. pause then complete fill) The water should be no more than 1/4 inch below the heating element. If not there..replace water inlet valve.

Inspect food chopper:
Remove lower spray arm and rear water supply tube to upper spray arm. Remove torx screws that secure the sump cover. Remove the rounded cover on the left side to expose the chopper assembly. Inspect for breakage of blockage. There may be an additional plastic screen to remove first.

Dishwasher Making Loud High Pitched Noise.


A loud high pitch whine while running the dishwasher means that there is something caught in the chopper assembly. To get to the chopper assembly you need to take the racks out and take the pump apart from the inside of the dishwasher. The chopper assembly looks like a metal grate with holes in it. And it might not even be stuck in the grate but somewhere in the pump area due to the water being pumped out, so the best idea is to take the whole thing apart and clean everywhere. However I do not recommend doing this unless you are completely certain you will remember where the screws and gaskets go, otherwise you risk damaging your pump or house from a leak or improper installation. You have been warned.
