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

1 Answer

I have a Whirlpool GU2500XTPQ3 dishwasher that is about 5 years old. The dishes in the top basket do not get clean. I checked the water tube that feeds the upper spray arm and the top spray and there aren't any obstructions. Our water pressure and temperature are suitable. Could the pump be plugged or otherwise lose its ability to circulate enough water to adequately feed the upper sprayers? How can I check on that?

    Thanks for the help. The video of the fix was perfect. My dishwasher had a pile of broken glass in front of the intake shield and the screen behind the chopper was nearly completely plugged up. In addition the interface spline on the chopper assembly had broken so it wasn't chopping the debris. I am replacing the chopper assembly for under $20. It cleans like a champ now.

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa,

Based on your description as well as all you`ve done on your own I`d suspect you`re on the right track with the plugged pump suspicion.

The place to start for that is to pull the pump filter, spray arm and check for food deposit, broken glass, undesolved detergent and general water deposit built up in the sump well.

The key is to get in there and clean it all out, I`ve attached a link at the bottom that will show you how to go about it. It is not really referring to the heating issue, or maybe even your model, ( Most Whirlpool, Inglis, Kenmore, Kitchen-Aid, Jenn-Air ) but it is the same procedure.

When you`re finished run it through a test cycle and see how it goes.

Let me know how you make out and what you find.

Top shelf dishes aren't getting clean in my 5 year old Whirlpool dishwasher. Any suggestions?


Hello,

The most likely reason the dishes in the uppper rack of your dishawasher are not getting clean is because the filter on the pump is built up withe debris and the water is havinga tough time circulating through the pump. This tip i wrote will show ya how to clean that filter.

My dishwasher is not cleaning the dishes on the top rack. there seems to be water dripping from the top inside of the dishwasher but the dishes are not being cleaned. I am making sure the funnel on the top...


There is a pipe/tube that runs up the back of the inside of your dishwasher. This provides water for the top spray arm. The spray arm has a feeder tube that covers the pipe in the back. If for some reason the feeder tube has come dislodged, the water just drips back down into the dishwasher, never touching your upper shelf. My kids used to jam cutting boards and other large items into the lower shelf and in so doing, would dislodge the upper spray arm feeder tube. Just pull out the upper shelf and check to see that the tube is in the correct position. This should solve the problem.

If not, then the spray arm may have debris in it that keeps the water from being forced through the jets. You'll need to flush the arm with the spray attachment on your kitchen sink. I sometimes use tweezers or a toothpick to dislodge bits of peelings, paper, or bone that manage to get into the sprayer arm.
I hope one of these tips helps. If it does,please come back to fixya and rate my answer.

Inside of dishwasher was dirty after cycle, baskets had black in between the screen...took out all bottom and found dirty water, a couple of inches and slime in bottom...cleaned it all out and put it back...


Check the food grinder (small blade spins against a screen) in the bottom of the dish washer drain. I found the grinder to be inoperative and clogged which reduced / stopped flow of the wash water. Also, small pieces of clear plastic food wrap can block flow.

The dishes don't get clean


Dishes not cleaned properly....
 
  1. Check the water temperature. Should be 125 to 140 F.
  2. Check pump re-circulation., Listen, see if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.
  3. Check water level when the fill cycle has completed. Should be just under the heating element. If not, possibly need to replace the water inlet valve.
  4. Check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks.
  5. Check to make sure dishwasher is draining after each cycle. There should only be a little water in the bottom of the tub.
  6. Make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.
  7. Possibly try a different detergent. Some liquid-gels will bubble and a pump cannot pump bubbles.

Whirlpool Dishwasher Model: GU2500XTPQ3 making loud whining noise


It's most likely coming from the wash motor bearings. Based upon the age of the dishwasher it might be time for a new one. Although it can be fixed by replacing the motor. It's usually easiest to change the entire sump assembly with the motor. You will have a new wash system. Part number W10782773 Dishwasher Pump Motor Part Number 8535150 Sears PartsDirect

My Whirlpool dishwasher is only 2 years old and I started having the same problems. I dismantled everything I could and washed and scrubbed the entire unit with EVERYTHING..to no avail, dirty dishes!! But I discovered a remedy! Try using Lemi-Shine for about a week with your regular wash-soap. If you are using the tablet form of soap, stop and try the powdered form. Follow the instructions on the Lemi-Shine container. You can find it just about anywhere for around $3.50. I was within "5 seconds" of replacing my 2 year old Whirlpool dishwasher when this caught my eye and I figured why not try it too? After the first wash I noticed a big difference the cleanliness of the dishes..and now it is running GREAT after 2 weeks!
