Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

I have a whirlpool dishwasher. It has a silverware basket that is too small to completely clean the utensils. I wondered if it could be replaced by a bigger basket. I am not entirely satisfied with the overall cleaning of the dishes--any help

No bigger basket availble, thorough whirlpool any way. a few thingfd to try to improve cleaning:

1. make sure air dry/ economy setting is NOT selected
2. run your hot water in sink proir to starting d/w
3. use a quality powder dertergent ( powder breaks down better in hot water. liqiuid in cold0
4 using a rinsing agent such as rise aid will also aid in overall performance

I have a whirlpool gu2400 dishwasher. The spring loaded soap dispenser door does not open during the wash cycle to release the soap.


Whirlpool dishwashers use a wax motor or a solinoid to release the door at a specific time during the cycle. So for proper cleaning the soap cup is nessesary . The part isn't that expensive and fairly simple repair.

The dishes don't get clean


Dishes not cleaned properly....
 
  1. Check the water temperature. Should be 125 to 140 F.
  2. Check pump re-circulation., Listen, see if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.
  3. Check water level when the fill cycle has completed. Should be just under the heating element. If not, possibly need to replace the water inlet valve.
  4. Check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks.
  5. Check to make sure dishwasher is draining after each cycle. There should only be a little water in the bottom of the tub.
  6. Make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.
  7. Possibly try a different detergent. Some liquid-gels will bubble and a pump cannot pump bubbles.

Soap door does not open


I have a 1 year old whirlpool that had this problem ... items in silverware compartment were blocking the soap door. when we opened the DW, the soap door was open, but could not open properly during the cycle due to kitchen utensils in the way ... took a while to figure this our as it was intermitent (both the problem ... and us putting tall stuff in front of the soap door). Our soap door needs 3.5" of free space in front of it ... I think it's a design flaw. Good luck.

Maytag jetclean eq plus dishwasher: soap problem


This could be due to 2 problems: not enough water or water is not being pumped hard enough through the system. The 'not enough water' is easy to check - open the door in the middle of a wash cycle. If you have enough water (about 1" or more) then that is probably ok. The 'not pumping hard enough' could be as simple as plugged up filters and holes in the spray arms. Remove the racks and disassemble the lower spray arm and the filter assembly all the way down past the screen. Clean the arm holes, throughly clean the screen, clean everything. Pull the top spray arm and throughly clean the spray holes there. Put it all together and run a cycle. You should see a pronounced increase in the sound of the water spraying around. This should fix your problem - it did for me.
