Question about Whirlpool 24 in. DU1100XTP Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Holding water There is water in the bottom of the machine after the cycle is done. There is definitely draining going on throughout the cycle, but it's not draining completely at the end -and the water that is left is murky. Spoke to a friend who tells me it sounds like the dump valve, but in checking on line, that doesn't seem to be a part that even exists any more. Do I need to buy a new dishwasher? This was not in the budget this year... Thanks for any advice! Nancy

    The new dishwasher works great! However, there is still water in the bottom after each cycle is complete. The second wash did have less water than the first wash. I am running a rinse cycle now to see what happens....

Are the dishes getting clean at the end of the cycle, if not then there could be foreign debris in the pump housing that can cause this, needs to be dismantled and cleaned out, if dishes are clean then the pump impeller will need to be replaced

Bosch tassimo T65 - water draining in to drip tray possible cause and resolution


I had a problem on my Tassimo T65 where water was entering the bottom drip tray through the small hole at the rear. It seems many people have this problem but after researching on line there is little help although I found on this sit how to take the coffee maker apart and from that thread the possible cause for my own issue.
So if your machine seems to be leaking from the small drain hole to the rear of the drip tray try this before you think it is either in need of specialist repair by Bosch at a cost almost the same as a new machine or before you start to take it apart and have a look yourself.
CAUSE - The water is coming from the drain hole because the pressure valve at the top of the machine is blocked with calcium deposits through prolonged use without descaling sufficiently.
SOLUTION - Purchase a good quality coffee machine descaler. Sit the whole coffee machine in a tray or large oven tray so you can collect the overflowing descaler throughout the process, it's not economical to waste this solution. Remember to clean down and dry the coffee maker each time.
Use at least half strength descaler do not water it down more than 1:1
Follow the descaling process by inserting the yellow disc and holding the start button down for 3 seconds.
Repeat this process several times, recovering the fluid leaking in to the tray and cup or container. If you start to see small lumps being dispelled in to the cup try to remove these for further descaling.
After several cycles you should notice that the leaking or flow of water from the bottom drain hole becomes less until it stops. To force the dissolving scale out of the pressure valve try running the normal clean cycle but with the descaling solution, the flow is longer and will help flush the restriction.
After a number of descaling and clean cycles the leak or flow from the drain hole will have stopped, if not continue till it does.
Note: I ran cycles for about 2 hours with periods of rest to allow the solution to do its work.
Now the leak or flow has stopped clean out the reservoir and replace with clean water and run at least 4 clean and rinse cycles.
i hope this works for you and now enjoy your coffee.

Bosch washing machine fills with water throughout any cycle


Just a guess but could the fill valve be defective, not shutting off completely when it should?

Water won't fill


it's syphoning caused by the drain hose in the stand pipe (wall) too far.
pull the drain hose out and stick in 6 inches only and secure to one of the fill hoses so it does not go back down too far. This will solve your problem

Ge triton won't drain


Well, I haven't heard from anyone from this site yet, but I did talk to Mike Anderson of Anderson Appliance Repair in Clinton, Ten. He told me how to test the solenoid (should read 40 ohms at 1X on a multi tester). Check that the float at the bottom left corner is working and finally test the wires going into the motor (my motor shut down the moment the machine hit the drain cycle). Sure enough, I get 110 volts throughout and 0 at the drain cycle. He says it needs a new timer. If you try to clean it you'll have little springs and things shooting out. Good luck. and Thanks to Mike Anderson (865-945-3808)

Tromm lg washing machine keeps having an OE error and the machine shuts down. We have cleaned the little filter on bottom front and also cleaned the little black drain hose, used a vac pump so **** out,...


The OE error is really a DE error. (Drain error) Drain all water out of machine as you have done before and remove the square recess around the filter by removing one screws and using a putty knife from the side of the recess. Now you will be able to remove the two more screws holding the pump to the front housing. Tip machine back (best to just lean it against an object like a wall that's about a foot and a half away) and reach under machine to remove pump. Pump is held by a plastic tab which should be depressed to release pump. If you take off wires to pump and the two bigger hoses you can pull the assemble completely out. Take the three screws out which are holding the pump motor on. Replace pump motor with a new one. Reinstall pump assembly.
If you list a model number I can look up a part number.
Not too sure how you got water to come out vent, as machine should not spin with water in drum. Possibly you may also have to clean out the water level hose. Remove four screws holding back cover, take off cover, remove and clean out thin black hose from bottom back of machine and the nipple it was pushed onto.

Why does my washing machine have 2 drain outlets?


This is a water saver or previously known as a suds saver model. The bottom one is the drain. The top one would go to a suds tub. If you set the machine on save, the wash water is pumped out of the top hose into the holding sink next to the washer. The rinse water goes out the bottom hose to the drain. The next cycle you could set the washer to the very beginning of the main wash cycle and the washer would pump the water from the tub back into the washer to be used as wash water for the second load of laundry. Yea, used water. But the first load would be lightly soiled stuff, and the next load would be old barn clothes or play clothes. It was designed to save water (about 65 gallons used for 2 loads vs. 90 gallons) and soap. (now, front load machines with larger tubs would use as little as 25 gallons for two loads.) Just hook up the bottom hose to the drain. Leave the save / drain switch set to drain and you'll be fine. To be extra safe (in case the switch was accidentally set to save) disconnect the wires at the solenoid where the drain hose splits into two at the back bottom of the washer. (right where the hoses exit the machine.)

Dishwasher confused


i suspect this is nothing to do with switching off during the cycle.
take the bottom plate off and check if there is water leaked into the bottom pan. alternatively, if you can, tilt the machine back to 45deg and see if water runs out.
most machines have a float switch in the base so that if water leaks, all that will happen is that the drain pump runs and i think this is what you are hearing
