Question about Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

BABHMJ's dishwasher husband

Tannerdis, I followed your instructions. The motor disc rotates freely. I see no valve in the hose, which exits the motor, then snakes around above the floor of the dishwasher, above the floor of the sink, and enters the side of the garbage disposal, which is old. The dishwasher seems to operate normally on the wash cycle. On the drain cycle, it does not drain, then quits. Removing the hose from the disposal shows a trickle of water being pumped out during the drain cycle, but not the flood expected. It ends when the drain cycle ends. The frame of the motor is corroded, but it seems to operate OK. Ideas? Could the drain or the hose be blocked? Is there a valve which shunts the pumped water either through the dishwasher wash syster or out through the drain? It might be stuck or broken. Can I find a schematic for the thing somewhere? Sears used to include an exploded view of their gear, with the components all numbered, and a numbered component list for that device, with it's respective part nuimbers, so you could order replacements. Where could I find such a thing? If I could understand how it works, perhaps I could fix the bloody thing in time for Sunday's feed.

You need to pull out the D/W so you can get access to the water pump and remove the hoses to see if its clogged.

Whirlpool gu1200xtls2 wont drain just stopped


Hello

your Whirlpool dishwasher stopped draining mid-cycle, check your circuit breaker or fuses. The cycle won't complete if the power is interrupted. Reset the circuit breaker if tripped, or change out any blown fuses. Fully close the dishwasher door, and restart the cycle if you opened up the door. If you have not used the dishwasher in a while, the motor may be stuck. Open up the main housing, and rotate the motor until it turns freely. You must replace the motor if it's corroded or won't move since it's unlikely that you can fix it.

Pump

The pump is located underneath the lower rack and spray arm. This component is responsible for pumping water out of the dishwasher once the cycle is complete. If the pump isn't working, verify that it is not clogged with debris. Use a toothpick or plastic utensil to remove food particles from it. Check the pump impeller. If a section of it is broken, get a new pump since the impeller is difficult to fix.

Clogs

Clogs in the air gap or drainage hose prevent water from leaving the tub. Clean these components and the water inlet filters, if dirty. Examine the drainage hose, and straighten it if it's kinked. If the hose is badly crushed, you must replace it. Unscrew the drainage hose from the dishwasher to clean it, but reattach it before you restart the cycle. Run the food waste disposer if it's connected to your Whirlpool dishwasher. Remove the knockout plug from the disposer if you have just installed the disposer or dishwasher.

Drain Valve/High Drain Loop

Whirlpool dishwashers have drain valves with an internal solenoid. This valve opens and closes to drain water out of the tub. If the drain valve is stuck, lubricate the lever, and remove any debris clogging the valve. Remove any objects that are preventing the drain valve from freely opening and closing. If the valve is not working properly, you must replace it. Always install a high drain loop to prevent water from the sink entering your dishwasher. Create a loop of the drainage hose that is at least 18 inches high. Attach this hose beneath a section of cabinetry.

Baumatic BD1631 dishwasher isn't washing the top tray. The rotating sprays are clear and hoses appear ok. The 'salt needed' warning light is on even though I've filled it with salt. Any ideas?


Try rotating the arm manually. Check whether its freely rotating. Clean the rotating axis area.

Check whether the pressure reaching the top spray arm hose.

Hi,

F8 would indicate a water level failure.

Check that the drain hose hasn't dropped down too low and also check that the water isn't siphoning out because the drain hose is too far into the stand pipe.



Check that the filters, especially the fine mesh one, is clean and clear.



If neither of the above, take the filters out, clean out the black grid on the right side of the sump.. Pour a kettle of boiling water into the sump getting as much as possible into the black grid. Select the hottest wash and try the machine again.

You could also look at the below points :-

Main tub seal

Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly. The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the: Lower rack Spray arm Spray arm support Wash/drain impellers Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.

Door gasket or seal

Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.

Water-inlet valve

The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary. The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

check the following:---- Check for hose kinks or food plugging drain hose. Start at the drain port exit
  1. Check the check valve and drain hose for debris.
  2. Check pump motor for reversing during the pump out make sure the dishwasher is pausing between the wash and drain cycles letting the pump/motor reverse for the drain cycle.
  3. Check timer for not letting the dishwasher pause. ( not all dishwashers )
  4. Check pump motor assembly for a drain solenoid, during the pump out make sure the solenoid makes that distinctive "clunk" noise

The dishwasher will not drain after its' cycle.


Your dishwasher uses one of two ways to drain. It either opens a valve on the main pump while it's running to let it pump the water out, or it turns off the main pump and uses a smaller pump with a separate motor to drain the water. You'll know which method it uses by the sound it makes when it drains, provided it's working properly. If it sound like it's running normally when it drains, but maybe quieter, it uses the main pump motor and opens a valve to drain. If it sounds completely different than it does and sounds like a different motor running when it's draining, it's using a separate pump to drain.
If your dishwasher uses the main motor to drain, you'll need to check the drain valve to see if it can open. Pull out the dishwasher, with the power turned off, being careful not to damage the sometimes fragile water line, and find the drain valve. It'll probably be located in between the big motor the drain hose. The valve's electromagnetic operator will be on the outside of the tube where the valve is. Make sure it's connected to the wires and make sure the valve isn't blocked with gunk.
If the dishwasher uses a separate pump motor drain, pull out the dishwasher with the power off, being careful not to hurt the sometimes fragile water line, and locate the drain pump. It'll be connected between the big motor and the drain hose. You may need to disconnect one of the hoses and make sure the impeller can turn freely. It may be blocked with gunk. Make sure the wires to the pump's motor are connected properly.
You may also need to check that the wires are plugged into the dishwasher's controller properly.
If the problem is still happening and you checked either the drain valve or drain pump, it'd help to get an electrical meter, disconnect the the wires from the drain valve or pump, and check to see if you can read a voltage on those wires when the dishwasher is trying to drain. If you can read a voltage, the drain valve or pump probably needs to be replaced or repaired. If the voltage doesn't show up, the problem is in the wires or the dishwasher's controller.
If it uses a mechanical knob that rotates and controls the cycle, you need to make sure the drain wire is connected properly. You could take apart the knob timer box to and replace the switch behind the control wheel that turns the drain function on and off.
If the dishwasher uses a digital controller, with buttons and lights and stuff, Follow the drain wires to the control board in the door and make sure they're plugged in. If you see a small black, blue, gray, or white box cube on the circuit board close to where the wires connect, tap it firmly with a screwdriver. That is a switch controlled by the microprocessor that turns the drain function on and off.

Leaking Dishwasher Help!


hi there,
dishwasher leaking might be due to either of these causes, check these:

Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom
of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you.
But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the
entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from
leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher,
remove the:

* Lower rack
*Spray arm
* Spray arm support
* Wash/drain impellers

Then try the seal out of its housing and replace it.

Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly.
You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.

Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the
rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten
or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues
to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the
dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the
leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.
