Whirlpool Gold quiet partner III, leaves dirty, greasy dishes

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?

    I agree, I have this unit and it is only 2 years old. it also leaves dirty, greasy dishes. It must not be a good unit for cleaning. I have turned up my hot water but that didn't help.

    I had exactly the same problem but I did some digging on the i-net and found that the solenoid that activates to let the water in sometimes has it covering swell from the heat and gets bound up a little bit so it is not fully opening and not putting enough water into the washer. I just pulled out the washer and took the solenoid off and plunged it in and out a few times and spun the plunger a around a few times, reinstalled it and it works like new again.

    The solution is to not buy one of these design-flawed, overpriced, plastic rip-offs. So many corners have been cut making these things that the whole production is a circular argument. DON'T buy the exorbitant parts. Get rid of the thing and buy an old metal used unit with mechanical on/off buttons. Or, clean the dishes in the sink with a drainer. It's a racket; don't be a ****** and a part of it.

    Hello,

    My Whirlpool DU1100 is only 1 year old. The dishes are dirtu and the soap doesn't disolve completely My husband is convinvced it is low water pressure, primarily from a leak in the sprinkler system in the park behind our house. I think it is just a clog of some kind preventing the water from getting into the dishwasher fill and/or spray arms. The maunual says you need 20 120 PS to run the dishwasher I doubt it is below 20 PS because of a leak in the park. Is there anyway to tell if it is the water pressure versus a clog befere we spend 200.00 to find out. We live in the middle of nowhere and I don't want to even know how much they'd charge. We might as well buy a new cheap dishwasher THX!

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.

    jeremy2141.........Thank You!! If it wasn't for you I would have taken a hammer to this dishwasher. I followed your directions however taking it apart was the easy part. Putting it back together a *****. I am so happy you took the time to make the effort to share. Because of you my dishwasher is now getting water to the upper arm. I didin't find chicken bones however I did find a 2 inch piece of plastic blocking water circulation along with all the calcium build up from the heating element breaking off making obstructions of water. Thank you. Alot of work but well worth it...from a 45 year old female with no one helping...It works...

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.

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.

The dishes coming out dirty on my Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner IV. Cycle seems to complete. The soap is being used. Not sure how old it is ... it came with a house I just bought. Any suggestions?


Clean the jets on the unit. Jets are the small openings the water comes out of. Contact Whirlpool, follow their recomondations, or add some CLR or Lime Away to the washer without a load of dishes. Both products remove Calcium Lime and Rust deposits which impede the flow of water, causing your dishes to come out dirty

Dirty dishes, pump acid wash.


I would not recommend using acid in a dishwasher it could lead to premature seal failure and damage the internal components.

There are cleaners that can be used that are dishwasher safe such as Lemi-Shine, Glisten, Rinse Aid dishwasher cleaner etc. Vinegar works pretty good too.

Depending on what the symptoms were a pump cleaning may be needed, before you act check out these tips I put together, feel free to send me a message back with any questions.
