Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers

1 Answer

Our whirlpool estate diswasher will not drain the water after a wash cycle. I have removed internal parts down to the drain and cleared the path. Moreover, I have removed the drain tube and clean it. Still water will not drain. I assume it is the pump. Can the pump motor be easily replaced? Thank you, Jim

Whirlpool dishwasher du920pfgq3 will not drain


If you hear the drain motor running but water not draining then there appears to be a blockage in the drain sump or hose. Assuming your kitchen drain is clear you will have to check filters inside the dishwasher and worst the drain pump.
If you do not hear drain motor running then the drain motor needs to be checked.

My whirlpool dishwasher is not draining completely. It runs through the entire cycle with no problems, except that after it has finished, there is a layer of water on the bottom of the diswasher.


Hi, there will always be some water in the bottom the tub. This is called the sump. When your pump stops draining, all the water that's up in the hose will drain back into the sump. You failed to tell me how much water is there. If a small amount then it's normal, however if it's a large amount that covers 1/2" or so then you indeed have a problem and snaking out the lateral should clear it up.

The clean light is blinking diswasher won't start


Push these buttons in this order High temp wash > Heated dry>High temp wash >Heated dry all the lights will come on and this will reset the board and run it through a short test cycle but more than likely it will come up again,It's a failure in the heating cycle either the heater itself or the turbidity sensor which sits mounted up into the tub right behind the drain pump...hope this helps

Water remains in diswasher


HI. check the following areas for fualts.

1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Diswasher motor making noise during wash cycle


It could be the impeller on the motor. The impeller fits over the shaft of the motor and might have split/broken up. That funny noise is probably the shaft spinning inside the damage impeller. Fortunately the impeler is fairly inexpensive and easy to replace. I believe there are one or two parts/covers to remove that are held in by a roughly half dozen torx screws.

Water Will not Drain


It could be cause the water level switch. The level switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. I am not familiar with your machine,but if you will open the rear panel you will find it easily. Clear tube from any obstruction. Good luck !
