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

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 instruction manual for whirlpool dish washer mod. DU930PWQ2


Are you sure about the model number? The Whirlpool dishwashers that start DU930 have 4 letters in the model number after the 930.

If your model is the DU930PWPQ2, the manual is available here: https://www.whirlpool.com/digitalassets/MLPDF/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%208575990.pdf . If you have a different model, try looking it up here: https://www.whirlpool.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/OCManualsLiteratureSearchView?catalogId=10561&langId=-1&storeId=10211&krypto=m3wLp9EUOpUUfCAXtvB5kw%3D%3D&ddkey=http:WHRHelpContactUsSendMessage .

I hope this helps.

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

Whirlpool Dishwasher power surge results in flashing clean button


I'm not sure what the sequence would be on your particular model as Whirlpool dishwashers can differ in operaiton. However, if you remove the lower kick panel under the dishwasher door, there should be a tech sheet either directly behind the panel, or tucked inside the door. The tech sheet will list all troubleshooting tips and any fault codes that the owner/operator's manual does not list. This is the SAME sheet the repairman will reference when they come to your home on a service call. Please let me know if you still require assistance. I hope this helps you.

CODE F4 and washer not working


Not too sure on that code, could be timer error. One thing to try would be to turn off the AC power to the unit and let it stay off for 15-30 minutes and then turn it back on. Sometimes if the unit takes a voltage spike it hashes the memory and resetting the power will clear it up, but to do this the voltage needs to turned off at the fuse/breaker box and not just the switch on the front. If you have the manual it may give ideas. I could not find the model no. you listed. Check to see if it is correct if resetting the unit doesn't help.
