Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers

1 Answer

We built a home last August and our appliances are Whirlpool. We were very happy to know that we would be having Whirlpool applicances bacause we've always heard how great they are. But, we have not been pleased with our dishwasher. We called Metro Builders in Tulsa, Ok who provided the dishwasher for our house and asked several times to come check on it because it will not dry our dishes. They told us to just use Jet Dry and that would take care of it. I told them we use Jet Dry and make sure that we have it on heat dry. They said they didn't know what would be the problem. I have to hand dry each item before I put them in the cabinets. If I don't want to hand dry them, then I let them sit in the dishwasher for at least a day to air dry. We, also, purchased a new refrigerator to match our appliances and it has a high pitched ringing sound to it when it runs its cycle. We've have an appliance repairman from Hahn's Appliance Store in Tulsa to come out several times. The last time they replaced the motor part, I think, to see if that would help and it didn't. It is very annoying when we have guests and they have to listen to the ringing noise, also. So, if you could help us in any way, we would appreciate it. As of right now, we have not been pleased with Whirlpool Appliances and have told friends that are in the process of getting new appliances to maybe look at other brands. Thank you!

    The dishwasher model # is DU810SWPU3

    The serial # is FU2045867

    The type is # 280-0

    The dishwasher is less than a year. I think it was the compressor that they replaced. They had to order one from Texas. We bought the fridge before we moved in the house and they kept it in storage for us. So, it's over a year old.

    We appreciate you returning your suggestions to us in a timely manner. Please let us know what we need to do.

    Thank you!

Hey guys, what is the model number of your dishwasher?The people/person that installed it could have wired it wrong.There is also a high limit (saftey device) that has tripped therefore not letting the element heat.As for the refrigerator it sounds like the compressor making that noise as they do tend to whine but not noticeable.If these appliances are less then a year old the should be under warranty.Let me know.

It depend on what you want in appliances; such as, top quality, the most expensive, mid level appliances, and many other factors involved in your choices of replacement appliance.

Mrs Alecia William you need to talk it over with your husband and friends, do your research on appliances on the internet. Just remember this....Everybody will give advise on what appliances to buy but the final decision will be left you and your husband. I could recommend different types of appliances, but who am I!

Whirlpool glass door exploded in my face! A serious defect!

I would go to a Lawyer unless you have a serious voltage problem. Whirlpool makes pretty good appliances. To have probems with all of them is very unusual. Look for a comon problem. You have not stated your outher problems. I have heard about oven glass breaking with no reason.
