    Bottom rack gets clean, top rack and utensils do not. Spary arm are NOT CLOGGED, food is obviously trapped in the filter, very difficult to clean the filter

Motor-Pump Drive assembly is defective.Hey while you have this machine apart pull the drain pump off and look for a jammed flap,it's rare but check it anyway.(to remove the drain pump just twist it and pull it off).For the non believer's out there ,this will be a learning experience.You will NOT resolve this "not clean dish" problem unless the Motor -Pump assembly is replaced with the one they now make that works. THIS to some repairman was called POWER DRIVE ASSEMBLY. Quick note: motor - pump does NOT include the drain pump.Think about that for awhile.Any way the drain pump will not be the problem,the Motor-Pump is!

Whirlpool quiet partner ii dishwasher has quit working. Power is getting to the dishwasher but it is not coming on at all. There is water standing in the bottom of it and a very foul smell is present.


This dishwasher has a thermal fuse that attaches to the main control board that may have failed, it can be tested with a meter for continuity if it does not have continuity then it is your problem.

Quiet partner 1 top rack does not get clean at all


Hi,

I would suspect you have debris in the pump that is causing a pressure drop so the water is not spraying well in the upper arm.

Try this procedure to clean out the sump. Let me know if it helps.

I do not seem to get sufficient water pressure in the machine.There is sufficient pressure at the faucet adjacent to the machine. Is there a filter that could be removed and checked for debris in the water...


there is a screen in the water control valve try disconnecting water line at the d/w with water turned off after line is off get a bucket and turn water on to see if there is good pressure if there is good pressure I would say it is the water control valve

Quiet partner ii just stopped


Most likely it has an internal fuse or relay gone bad. Check the curcuit w/ a "glow stick" power identifier available at Lowes or Home Depot.

I have the Whirlpool Quiet (??) Partner II. My


Have this same problem with my Whirlpool DU1145XTBA. Found out that when you start the unit, it fills with water. If the water does not rise above the filter mesh in the bottom center of the unit then the pump doesn't have enough water to supply pressure to the upper sprayer. Had to replace the Flow Meter. It tells the unit how much water to supply to the unit.

Whirlpool quiet partner II top rack sprayer doesnt work


The top rack spray arm doesn't work because of low water pressure from the wash motor or it's clogged with debris.
If the top spray arm looks clear of debris, remove the lower spray arm and lower feed tube to access the wash motor. Remove the 4 torx screws and the filter (accumulator assembly). Remove the torx screw and the inlet protector that covers the chopper assembly. Make sure the chopper is not broken (broken chopper will fill with debris and block water flow). While holding the chopper blade, reach inside the "D" shaped opening on top of the motor and spin the wheel/motor by hand in each direction to make sure either the chopper gear or the motor gear that drives the chopper is not broken. Replace the chopper if necessary (part # 8268383). If the motor gear is broken, replace the sump and motor assembly (part # 8535150). Remove any debris from the sump area in the process.
You don't have to shut the power off to the dishwasher because the door will be open, but if you feel more comfortable, do so.
Good luck!

Whirlpool Quiet Partner II not washing or sensing.


I have a whirlpool quiet partner II and for some reason it does not drain the water out any more and I cannot figure out why....people say that it is the filter but that is unbelievably hard to get to and I cannot find any instructions online or paper work that tells how to break it down. If anyone has any insight please let me know

Dishes not thourghly cleaned on top sheelve


generally dishwashers rely on the pressure supplied by the water supply line. check to see if it is enough or if inlet pipe is of sufficient diameter for needed flow.in some instances i know of seperate lines needing to be run directly instead of coming off of supply to sink area.
