SOURCE: Dishes not drying and mildew growing in dishwasher

I've been researching Whirlpool issues for awhile now and the solution would appear to be not to ever buy anothere Whirlpool appliance.

Most of the dishwasher they've put out have broken down in one way or another within the first 3 years. Some start fires. Lawsuits, website complaints, calls, letters, NOTHING seems to change their policy as to simply have one of their repair people come out and offer to fix it for nearly the cost of the unit.

This mildew issue is fairly common...ditch it. Get a new one. Avoid Whirlpool. Don't believe me? Try calling them to fix or replace it.

I sincerely hope it works out for you one way or the other.

SOURCE: streaks on glassware/silverware

usually indicative of clogged spray heads, or spray arms not spinning, too much detergent for your water type, wrong detergent, and low water temp.

Check the manual for amounts of detergent to use based on your water hardness.

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.

Door will not shut when upper silverware holder is in


Make sure you are installing that silverware holder properly. The little tabs of the silverware holder are supposd to go over and around the mating bars of the upper rack. Barring that, your upper rack may be pulled (bent) out, and you may have to push it (hard) to get it back in shape.

Soap door will not open


Chaney,
Make sure there is nothing in the way of the soap door when you close the dishwasher.
Close the dishwasher door slowly and look down in side with a flashlight, are any of the rack brackets or silverware basket directly in front of the dispenser door.
Take a look and let me know.
Regards.

Silverware container


If we are talking about the quiet partner 3 the silverware container can actual hang more effectively on the lower dish rack itself as opposed to on the door. The flap also does just snap on. Hold the back side of the metal with your thumb while pusing with even pressure on the plastic flap. I still reccomend though hanging the whole assembly on the outside of the lower rack.
