Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers
I am guessing that you have a regular dishwasher with 2 pull-out drawers and two rotating spray bars.
These are really simple machines, most having just a water pump as moving parts.
If you can answer these questions for me I might be able to help:
Does the water pump work - can you hear splashing from inside when it is turned on?
If No - the pump may be blocked or broken. Check the filter basket or any other filter mentioned in the instruction book to make sure they are clear.
If Yes - do the spray bars both rotate during the washing? You can check by setting them both so they are pointing at you, then swirch on the machine for a second or two then switch it off again. Open the door and look to see if the bars are in the same position as you left them.
If No - check the holes in the spray bars for blockage by food and crockery particles, jar labels, etc. If they are blocked unscrew the knurled nuts thst retain them and carefully remove them from the machine, noting the order of any washers, spacers, etc. One of the nuts - I think the one on the bar that turns anticlockwise as you look at the nut - is likely to be a left hand thread so you will need to turn that the opposite way to usual to remove it.
When you have got the bars off run them under a tap and get all the debris out. If the little jet holes are blocked the bar won't turn and your dishes won't get splashed.
If you can check those few things and let me know what you found I'll might be able to help you further.
If this "fixes ya" I'd be grateful for a suitable rating for my answer.
