Question about Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher
The dishwasher is only two years old, but does not clean well and leaves dirty and greasy dishes. I don't think the water is getting hot enough and may be a bad heater coil?
Replacement parts for this type of dishwasher can be found on amazon. here: Amazon com Whirlpool Gold quiet partner III parts (You can ask sellers for particular problem, they know the best.) I hope this was helpful. Cheers

You need to clean out the trap in the bottom. It's a little involved to gain acess. You need to remove the bottom dish tray and set it aside. Then use a pair of pliars to hold the nut on the bottom spray arm and unscrew the arm from the nut. When you do it right, the spray arm will come off. Then you need to unscrew the two #2 phillips screws that hold the white water passage in the back and top. You can then turn it to the right and it will come out when you line up the 3 tabs. Then there are 4 Torx T20 screws that hold the screen on. Remove the screws and the screen. You should find all kinds of gunk, food, and who knows what else inside. You're not done yet, remove yet another T20 screw to acess the food grinder way at the bottom. You'll have to clean all the gunk out of there and make sure the screen and grinder aren't broken. Reassemble, and try doing another load, it should work much better. I found small chicken bones, wrappers, even a toothpick in mine.

Ifixall is correct. I also learned several things with the apartment buildings I maintain.
1. the screen or pump trap must also be cleaned regularly to make sure there is no debris, food etc stuck in there.
2. The spray arms must be free of debris or obstructions.
3. Jet dry solution must be filled or has some solution in it.
4. Water must be hot
5. Scraping dishes and prewash them before putting them into dishwasher.
6 install water softner sometimes helps. (I don't know how true this is, since I am unable to do this in our buildings)
7 drain line must be picked up, or secured to prevent backwash.
8. MAKE sure that the lower rack is not obstructing the sprayer arms. Sometimes overloading dishwashers will cause dishes not being cleaned properly.
9. if all else fails, a service technician can come out to determine if the dishwasher is operating properly.

Anyone that can address the water pressure issue?
"small grinder over the stainless inlet grate has fallen or broken off."

You need to check to make sure the dish soap you are using is not over a year old as they have a shelf life and become less effective the older they get! Call the manufacturer and they will issue coupon for new product!

You probably have already figured this out, but if you havent, try seeing if the small grinder over the stainless inlet grate has fallen or broken off.. this was a cheap part to begin with, but if it falls off the grate accumulates various garbage, and then suddenly no pressure, and greasy dishes. good luck.
