Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

I just bought a Whirlpool quiet partner II and it's leaking. It appears to be coming from a dome shaped thing at the front of the basin. It only leaks when the dishwasher stops and there is water in the basin. It appears to be a valve of some sort but i can't tell. Nothing in the manual even mentions what this thing is. Any ideas?

    What should I do to look at it...I noticed the switch? Will this be a warranty issue or is it something I can look and see what it wrong?

  • headshrin498 Jun 03, 2010

    I lifted the float a few times and heard it clicking on the up and down strokes. I am running it now. It only leaks when I open the door while it is running...as soon as I close the door it still leaks but if I turn it on again the leaking stops. I may have to call lowes and get them to look at it.

I think what your looking at is the fill switch float there should be a switch located under it on the bottom of the tub it might have came loses or not hitting it properly

    if it keeps filling and over flowing yes i would call for waranty if you have it but sometime if you lift the float it realigns on the microswitch that is needed to cut the water flow off. you can take the kick plate off and see if it is hitting it or if the arm from the dome is pressing it

    i would if you just got it . make sure you talk with a aplliance manager though or they will route you to frigidiare most store have servicers that they work closly with that can get it fixed for you under warranty

My whirlpool dishwasher wont fill with water, any ideas ??


Assuming the lights come on, the pump likely has gone bad and needs to be replaced. I had the same thing happen a few years ago on my Quiet Partner II, and replacing it solved the problem. I was able to find one online for $20-30 and do the job in under an hour.

Whirlpool quiet partner ii dishwasher has quit working. Power is getting to the dishwasher but it is not coming on at all. There is water standing in the bottom of it and a very foul smell is present.


This dishwasher has a thermal fuse that attaches to the main control board that may have failed, it can be tested with a meter for continuity if it does not have continuity then it is your problem.

We purchased a white Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner need it black


You can purchase door panels to replace the existing one to match your other appliances. The part number for a BLACK panel is W10073200. The cheapest I found the panel listed was appliancepartspros.com for about $96. Only you can decide whether or not the cost is too much. I hope this helps you.

I have the Whirlpool Quiet (??) Partner II. My


Have this same problem with my Whirlpool DU1145XTBA. Found out that when you start the unit, it fills with water. If the water does not rise above the filter mesh in the bottom center of the unit then the pump doesn't have enough water to supply pressure to the upper sprayer. Had to replace the Flow Meter. It tells the unit how much water to supply to the unit.

Whirlpool Quiet Partner II not washing or sensing.


I have a whirlpool quiet partner II and for some reason it does not drain the water out any more and I cannot figure out why....people say that it is the filter but that is unbelievably hard to get to and I cannot find any instructions online or paper work that tells how to break it down. If anyone has any insight please let me know
