Question about Whirlpool 24 in. DU1100XTP Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Du1100xtpba The top rack of dishes doesn't get cleaned at all. And when we switched from a powder to liquid detergent (to see if it affected anything) the liquid detergent now stays gooped in it's compartment, and doesn't dissolve.

I do most of my shopping online and liquid bleach sometimes doesn't ship without breaking. Is it OK to use dry or powder bleach? I have the whirlpool cabrio top load large capacity model.


It should be okay to use dry bleach, if you follow the instructions on the bleach. Some bleaches require dissolving in water first, others can be used dry.

There is always detergent left in the compartment and my dishes don't seem clean. It doesn't seem to matter if I use powder or gel detergent and I don't overfill it.


I expect your filter is clogged which does not allow sufficient water to get from the pump to your spray arms. Thus they do not clean out the detergent nor do they clean the dishes. You might test this by placing a glass right side up in the top rack and run a normal wash cycle. The glass should fill at least half way with water.

The top rack is not longer getting clean


Using liquid detergent is the worst detergent to use. One possible solution to your problem could be as follows...pour 2 cups of vinegar in to the tub and run it on the hottest longest cycle with no dishes in it. May need to do this several times (3 to 4). This will clean the residue out and what ever "gunk" may be in the internal parts. Use Only powder detergent. No gel, no liquid and no tabs. These 2 cause a build-up over a period of time of use and reduce the performance of your machine. This should take care of your problem.

Dishes not getting clean


the problem is hard water leaving the residue. go to www.dishwasherfilter.com and get the dishwasher filtration system. it will reduce the hard minerals that leave the residue and your dishes will be clean as can be. it is very affordable and fits right under your sink.

Doesn't clean dishes completely, especially the top rack. also it doesn't completely empty out the detergent dispenser.


To the people here with the poor cleaning problems:
Try these steps:
Buy a small box of Cascade or Electrosol diswashing powder. Use only it for 30 days and report back. Do not use gel, tablets or ultra low end detergent. I have proven that ultra cheap powder WILL cause problems.
Also, fill a bowl or large cup with white vinigar, place it in the bottom shelf of of the empty dishwasher. Do not add any detergant. Run a normal or quick cycle.
If you still have poor cleaning, it is time to call for service or remove the filter beneath the lower rack and search for debris that will need to be removed.
Please report back with your results and the make/model of the dishwasher. Good Luck!

It not cleaning good


First detergents, make sure that its not expired. 2) some dishwashers do better with liquid or powder, so try each one, brands can vary also.

If hard water use more detergent soft less.

If only not cleaning on top rack you have a water pressure issue.

Also ensure you are properly putting the dishes on the rack, incorrect dishes restrict flow, pressure, and cleaning action.

cut back on the amount of soap and make sure you are not overloading bottom rack remember water has to get up through lower rack to do its job correctly
