Question about Whirlpool DU1055XTS Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

I have a whirlpool dishwasher, model DU1055XTSS2, only 1 1/2 years old. The detergent dispenser doesn't open and the jet dry dispenser doesn't seem to be working either. Any ideas for us to check so we don't need to call for service?

SOURCE: Dry Dishwasher Soap Still in dispenser after wash.

so here it is...
get a screw driver (you may need a "star" head driver as well), get in there and take out all that you can and clean it (it all comes out pretty easily)...you will find a lot of undisolved soap and hard water build up...rinse it, scrape it, vacuum it...just get out as much as you can...keep note of how you took it apart so you can put it back together...then put 1/2 to a whole gallon of vinegar in and run a cycle (hi-temp if you have that option)...if it was like mine most of your sprayers were gummed up and the water just wasn't moving through the machine...

to avoid this problem...use half of what you have been using of your detergent...and only fill the "pre rinse" section if you are doing pots and pans....and then only fill that half way as well.
after that run a few cups of vinegar through on an empty cycle once a month...
whole job (not including the wash cycle) 1.5 hours...

Hi puretonedoug,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: Beaumark Whisper Wash IV dishwasher jet dry dispenser does not appear to be working ( not using any jet dry) do they plug up or malfunction, if so how do you get it to repair or unplug?

The liquid jet dry dispencer only dispences a few drops in the last rinse. It is not uncommon for it to go a few months before needing refilling so it may not "appear" to be working. Are there spots on your glasses? That's the real test. If there are then just buy the jet dry that comes in a little basket that you hang from the top rack. Replace when it's empty and forget about the auto dispencer. If the glasses are clear then it's working and don't do anything..

Feel free contact me again!

I'd check the spray arms it may be there is not enough water or the wataer is not getting where it needs to be to disperse the soap. that is where I'd start.

I have a whirlpool dishwasher DU920PFGZ0 and the detergent dispenser door doesn't open all the way to release the soap


Is there a tall dish/cookie sheet/pan blocking the dispenser door from opening fully? Check inside the rack of the dishwasher to see where the dispenser door lines up.

Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner IV issue with soap dispenser


This happened to me as well. I think I solved the problem. It started when I first lowered the top rack. In doing so, the door doesn't open all the way. It also won't open all the way if your cutlery rack is in the front and you've put large utensils like a spatula. Consequently, detergent dried under the latch and it wouldn't firmly catch. For months I put up with it never emptying completely. The other day I took a tooth brush and very hot water and cleaned under the latch. After, I could feel a difference in the way the latch operated (with greater pop on opening). So far its been doing fine. Hope this helps.

I've posted this before. The latch just needs a good cleaning. In the past, something placed in the washer kept the door from opening properly, which caused detergent to dry under the latch. This has happen several times until I figured it out. Don't block the opening with tall objects. Soak or repeatedly apply hot water and a little brushing and it will be fixed. It doesn't happen anymore.

Dishwasher not cleaning well


The detergent cup itself can become clogged with old dried detergent that prevents it from opening. Sometimes just cleaning the cup takes care of the problem. Good luck!
