Question about Whirlpool 24 in. DU920PW Built-In Dishwasher

Open Question

Whirlpool DU900,09,10,11,15,20,30,DUL100 Hi, I'm not sure what exact model mine is, but those are the models listed on the manual. I opened the washer and the whole upper part of the wash tower was laying on the dishes! I took everything out, and began trying to think logically, and re-assemble the thing; nothing appears to be broken. page 17 of the manual is the only place that even shows this set up, but it's just a part description. As I am looking at the picture, I realize that the spray tower is missing....I mean gone! I thought I was nuts, then, i remembered there was this weird plastic piece in the cabinet when we moved into the apartment, it was being used as a paper towl support! I looked, and sure enough, it has to be it! I can't understand how it worked without it, but dishes cleaned....but how was the upper spray part supported? I am totally boggled on this one, and can't understand how to rejoin these parts. again, none seem broken off, but how do I attach the spray tower to the rubber piece that attaches to the lower spin sprayer piece? Then, how the heck does the skinnier end of the spray tower attach to the suction cup shaped piece of the third level tower portion? Any help or advice as to how to at least find directions on this assembly are greatly appreciated. Have a good day. JJ

SOURCE: installing part

there should be a clip half way up the back and on the top. release those and the old tub should come out with out to much difficulty. the peice that attaches from the feeder arm to the lower spray arm turns clock wise and lifts out. the lower spray arm will unscrew if you use a pair of pliers.

SOURCE: Whirlpool dishwasher float 'assembly' model-DU810SWPQ2

Enter your model number into a site like partselect.com to get a parts diagram for your dishwasher so that you can see what the part looks like. The float just extends through the base to close a micro switch so the dishwasher shuts off the inlet water valve.

SOURCE: The bottom spray arm gets jammed in lower dish rack.

I would unscrew the cap and remove the whole thing... you might have something clogging one side, which makes more water come out on one side than another, causing it to wobble... or you may find something else causing the problem.

If there is a blockage, clearing it out can be tricky. really long pipe cleaners work well. Craft stores have them.

Need owners manual for a kenmore elite washer that is free


What is your model number..also to let ya know Sears does charge for manuals. HOWEVER Sears doesnt make that washer that have it labeled for them..so with the model number i can determine exactly who made it..very likely Whirlpool and send ya a manual for that exact equivelent machine which will be identical except on the front where yours says Kenmore that one will say WHIRLPOOL

Whirlpool does not charge for manuals
or even if is made by General Electric their maunals are free as well..only Sears charge to send ya hard copy in the mail and wont allow a pdf electronic versoin of it to be downloaded free

How to shut off dryer end of cycle beep. Can u run


If the model number is correct, the dryer End of Cycle signal cannot be adjusted or turned off. The informatrion is listed on page 11 of the Owner's Manual:

http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/16695/WHIRLPOOL-Laundry-Centers-L0710382?brand_name_search=LTE5243D

The only way to turn the signal off, is to remove the operator console, locate the signal (buzzer) module and disconnect the wire(s). The buzzer is listed as item 32 under the "Washer/Dryer Control Panel" parts listing:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Whirlpool-Parts/Washer-dryer-combo-Parts/Model-YLTE5243DQ2/1198/0152000/W0702346/00001?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

CAUTION: If you choose this option, make sure you UNPLUG the washer/dryer before servicing anything inside. If you disconnect any wires, make sure you cover them with heat shrink or electrical tape to keep them from coming into contact with anything else.

The washer and dryer use a common power source, but the rest of the functions operate independently of each other. You can safely run both units at the same time.

If need further assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

When do i add soup to the machine?


If you are referring to how/when to add "SOAP" to the washer model number you listed this question under, here's a direct link to a FREE owner's manual:

http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/12125/WHIRLPOOL-Residential-Washers-L0710131?brand_name_search=WFW8400TE

The dispenser use and instructions begin on page 13.

If this is not your model, please post back with the correct model number (located on a nameplate around the door opening) and let me know. I hope this information helps you.

Washer starts agitation during water fill up and after spin cycle ends washer fills back with water and leaves clothes very wet.


I also have a Whirlpool top load Model # WtW57ESVW auto sensing load washer. I have it it almost a year and it has started to do exactly the same as described above. The repairman said today that it needed a "auto load sensing switch" which he has ordered for me.

Note - you can use your washer until the problem is fixed, but you have to make sure you manually stop the spin cycle prior to it just finishing, for that is the time period that the water starts to fill again.

I also noted that my local Lowes store does NOT sell this model anymore - probably too many customer complaints about this exact same problem. As soon as I showed the problem to the repairman this AM, he immediately diagnosed the issue - said that it was a recurring issue with this particular model.

Whirpool Duet Washer Model GHW9150PW1 Control Locked


I had the same exact problem, the answer is in the User's Manual for this model Dryer, also here: The Users Manual reads: "TO UNLOCK": Press and hold the END OF CYCLE button for 3 seconds to turn this feature off. I did this and it worked perfectly the first time! My first load is drying now after months of being without the dryer (too busy to investigate!). Good luck.

Where can I find a repair instucton manual for a kenmore series 90 washer?


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Following is the Whirlpool / Kenmore installation and service manual for top load, direct drive washers.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

Following is the Whirlpool / Kenmore parts list for commercial washers although the consumer model is basically the same.

Operator and parts manual for a Sears Kenmore washer 400 series


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

The model number usually starts with 110.########

To the right of the sub-components list is usually a section where you can see and download PDF operating manuals.

If this is a basic Whirlpool / Kenmore top load, direct drive washer, following are two Whirlpool PDF locations.

The first is the installation and operations manual and the second is a parts list for their top load direct drive commercial washers, (consumer models use the same part numbers).

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

Whirlpool Quiet Wash Dishwasher will not drain water


You can get the manual from the Whirlpool website.
Go to the Customer Support, Owner Information, Manuals link and enter your model number. Your exact model is not listed, but any of those listed will be close enough.

Check that the drain line is not kinked in any way, leading to the disposal, and make sure the line is routed up to the top of the cabinet, just underneath the counter top. Otherwise water can flow back into the dishwasher from the sink.

Make sure all filter screens are clean.

You can probably find an exploded view breakdown on SearsPartsDirect.com
