Question about Whirlpool 24 in. GU2500 XTP Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

My sound conditioned Whirlpool dishwasher is real old. It fills up completely with water. It looks like it will overflow, so I stop it. I thought it always started washing from the start. Do they always fill completely up with water, then start washing. I never noticed. I am afraid the water will overflow. Can it? Last time I ran this, it had a real loud motor. I used to hear the motor running from the start, but now I don't, just water filling up to what looks like overflow if I let it. I bailed all the water out myself, afraid to go on. I live on the second floor, afraid to soak the neighbors if why I don't want to keep running it if it isn't normal operation. Should I try again?

SOURCE: Westinghouse SB907 - Water draining out right after filling up

The drain hose has to have a loop in it. In other words as the drain hose exits the dishwasher, it must go up at least 18 inches before it goes down into the drain. If not, the water will siphon out of the machine.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Gold dishwasher water overflowing and will not shut off

There should be a dome shaped float switch on the inside bottom of the washer. Make sure it is free to move up and down, or is able to float (possibly cracked or broken).

Larry,
The float is generally for overflow conditions and will interrupt power to the fill valve solenoid.
If you are not filling completely in the time allowed by the timer, it is most likely a flow restriction in the water supply. Barring other obvious restrictions, the fill valve has filter screens on the inlet side of the fill valve, which is generally the cause of your symptoms. Be careful if you attempt to clean the screens, as the fill valves are very sensitive to debris, and can become stuck open if sediment gets past the screen. I usually replace the fill valve to avoid future problems.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Dishwasher fills and heats water, but doesn't wash.

I disassembled the bottom spray arm assembly to find a piece of chicken bone wedged against the motor gear. There was also lots of food debris lodged in every crevasse One main hole in the spay arm had paper lodged in it. So it was beneficial to do the extensive cleaning.
The dishwasher fired right up after I put all pieces back together.

check on the floor of the dishwasher on front left side. There should be a round float that is the overflow cut off. \make sure that it will go up and down. This is what shuts off the water.

The machine is not filling with water than it shows F09 and then FA on screen. Its a 6th sense and about 4 years old



Hi,

Error F09 means Overflow Condition

If the Overflow contact on the pressure switch is Closed for more than 60 seconds and Overflow condition will occur. In an Overflow condition, the Door will remain locked, and the Drain Pump will run constantly, even if PAUSE/CANCEL is pressed twice and the Display is cleared. Unplug the unit to service.


Thank You

New Whirlpool Dishwasher filler overflows.


New Whirlpool Dishwashers will NOT accept the same "volume" of water that was desired by the same products of 25 years ago. Therefore the old 3/8" ID copper supply is too large and will overflow the tub filler/aireator (out the air vent holes). I just installed a new dishwasher supply kit consisting of a new 3/8" OD stainless braded hose with an ID of about 1/4". This delivers less volume than that recommended (in the installation manual) and therfore does restrict the flow a bit. However, the flowrate is adequate and the new dishwasher now works perfectly with no water overflow on the floor . . .

Dish washer fills and then drians without washing


If you're sure it is heating the water, then it sounds like the wash motor/pump has failed. If you've worked on washing machines and/or dish washers before, this is potentialy a DIY job - the Haynes Dishwasher manual is very good, and parts can be found on the internet.

The reason for cheking it is actually heating the water is that the symptoms sound very similar to those of a failed heater = fill, pause, empty, stop usually accompanied wth an error code. Error code will be presented by a number of flashes of a lamp, or a number on a display panle depending whch machine you've got.

Bosch dishwasher fills with water after cycle is completed


Sounds like you need a new water inlet valve. It's not shutting off completely, so water slowly enters the machine even while it isn't running.

The clean water fill will not shut off and water overflows from the dishwasher onto the floor. We had to turn off the water supply to the dishwasher to get it to stop.


Fill valve is shot , new one required

Ps

Does it still run when you remove the power if so the above applies

If it shuts off then the problem sits with the pressure switch

Dishwasher will not fill


EE,
The most likely culprit in a "no fill" scenario (especially after you've replaced the valve) is the Overflow preventer. It's designed to kill power to the valve if the water level gets too high. It does this by floating up as the water level rises.
Open the dishwasher door and remove the lower rack. You'll see it in the tub on the left side (the round thing that looks like a little hat). If it's stuck in the up (overflow) position, you won't get water. Raise and lower this device a few times... you should hear the "click click click" of the kill switch. Now just make sure it's in full down (ready for water) position and fire up the dishwasher. You should get water now.

If this helped, please rate this solution as "FixYa". BUT if this didn't fix the problem, don't rate it just yet. Write back and we'll go a little deeper into a diagnosis, OK?

Can you be more specific? Does the dishwasher fill and then overflow?

Unit never washes...


Check water level:
Run the DW and wait for the main wash to start (water will fill. pause then complete fill) The water should be about 1/4 to 1/8 inch below the heating element. If not there..replace water inlet valve.
