OK, I figured out what was wrong with it! One of the hoses, the one lined in a metallic mesh, was twisted to the point where it was chocking the water flow. There was no need to bring out the dishwasher, just remove the small doors under the front door and I was able to spot the twisted metallic hose. Just cut the power before touching anything and then straighten it and make sure it doesn't bend. Put the small doors back, connect the power and run it. Dishes came out clean as a whistle.

SOURCE: Maytag Dishwasher Leak

HI. this is a inlet assembly issue. The water inlet valve can be identified by the water hoses connected to it. One hose will lead from the valve to the pump/motor assembly in the center of the dishwasher. Check that the hoses are securely connected to the valve and that there are no kinks in the hoses which could restrict water flow. There are two wires (four, if it has two solenoids) connected to the water inlet valve. Label the wires and connections so that you can properly reconnect them later. The wires are connected with slip on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire itself). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced.

Use a continuity tester or multimeter to test for continuity. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each terminal. A reading of infinity indicates a bad solenoid that must be replaced. Different brands and models will have various measurements, but the valve should show some resistance if it is functioning properly. If your valve has two solenoids, test the second one in the same way as the first.

If the solenoid is working properly, but water leaks through the valve even when the dishwasher is off, then the valve itself is the problem. Debris may be preventing the valve from closing. If the valve cannot be cleaned, it will have to be replaced. The valve can also fail mechanically. So even if it passes the electrical test, it may still require replacement. If you have ruled out all other possibilities, go ahead and replace the valve.

***(((NOTE-- It i possible that the valve housing has cracked as well. make sure that the hoses are connected properly during your testing. If there are no hose issues, this will be a defective valve assembly)))

SOURCE: whirlpool disher

Whirlpool Corp. manufactures and sells dishwashersmag-glass_10x10.gif and other home appliances under its own name, as well as under the brands Kenmore, Maytag and KitchenAid. Whirlpool has been in business for more than 100 years. Whirlpool dishwashers carry full warranties for one year, and limited warranties for longer periods on some of the parts.
Not all issues with Whirlpool dishwashers require a service call from a dishwashermag-glass_10x10.gif repairperson. You can solve some of these with the troubleshooting tips given below. Some dishwashing problems, however, cannot be solved yourself, but require a qualified plumber.

    Has Your Whirlpool Dishwasher Been Recalled?
  1. In 1996, about 500,000 Whirlpool and Kenmore dishwashers were recalled because the wiring within the door latch could potentially overheat and catch fire. The dishwashers in question were sold between June 1991 and October 1992. Affected Whirlpool brand dishwashers have model numbers beginning with DU8, DP8, DU9 and GDP, such as DU8700XY-1. Affected Kenmore dishwashers have model numbers beginning with 665, such as 665.1665591. In addition to model numbers, both Whirlpool and Kenmore have serial numbers ranging from FA2400000 through FA5299999 or from FB0100000 through FB1899999. If your dishwasher is affected by this recall, do not use it or try to repair it yourself. Contact Whirlpool at 800-874-9481 or Sears at 800-927-1625.
    About 162,000 Whirlpool and Kenmore under-the-counter plastic tall tub dishwashers made by Whirlpool and sold between June 2004 and January 2005 were recalled because of an overheating problem in the wash motor. To find out if your dishwasher is affected, call Whirlpool at 866-769-7260. In the meantime, do not use it or try to fix it.
    If your dishwasher is not included in the recalls, you might be able to repair it yourself.
  2. Troubleshooting Whirlpool Dishwasher Problems
  3. If the dishwasher does not fill, check to see that the overflow protection float is unobstructed and can move freely. Press down on it to release it.
    If your dishes are filmy or spotty after they've been washed or you see that the detergent is not completely dissolved, the water temperature might be too low. First, check to see that the dishwasher is connected to the hot water supply. Although the dishwasher heats water automatically at certain times, it will not heat cold water enough throughout the cycle to work properly. Whirlpool recommends that water be 120 degrees Fahrenheit coming into the dishwasher.
    If you're sure the incoming water is hot enough and you're using the correct amount of detergent, but you still have problems with spots on dishes or a dishwasher that won't fill, insufficient water pressure might be to blame. Water pressure must be 20 to 120 per square inch for proper functioning of a dishwasher.
    If the dishwasher isn't draining well, you might need a drain air gap. This is an external part that keeps drain water from backing up into the dishwasher. Plumbing codes in some jurisdictions require the installation of a drain air gap.
    To avoid dishes getting chipped in the dishwasher, make sure you load the dishwasher in a way that the dishes and glassware stay stable in the rack. Do not put delicate china or anything not known to be dishwasher-safe into the dishwasher.
    If you see brown stains on dishes and on the inside of the dishwasher, it is probably because your water is high in iron. The remedy for this is rewashing the dishes, the first time without detergent. Put one to three teaspoons of citric acid crystals into the detergent compartment and run a full wash cycle. Next, run a normal dishwashing cycle with detergent.
  4. Replacing Dishwasher Parts
  5. If the solutions above do not work for you, it is possible that you need to replace one or more dishwasher parts. Whirlpool recommends that you use only factory-specified parts to ensure correct operation and fit. Make note of your model and serial number and call the Whirlpool Customer Interaction Center at 800-253-1301.

Samsung dishwasher sprays gunk all over my glasses. When the cycle is over they are coated with dried bits of gunk. Dishes are dirtier than when they went in.

I have the same problem with gunk and spots on dishes. I took apart the parts at bottom covering the heating element. There is all sorts of gunk on everything. I cleaned it all, even under gaskets and filter screen. I am neither sure what caused it nor how to prevent it. My thinking maybe the water source. Water in my town has gotten worse in quality and has bad smell. I use a major water filter system for drinking water. My thought is that the heating element is drying the water up and leaving sediment from water.

The dishwasher doesn't seem to be cleaning very well any more. The glasses are always dirty and the dishes just don't seem to be clean like they used to be. Does the dishwasher need some maintenance? ...

Check the following:
- The Salt Container - Found at the bottom of the Dishwasher. (If required, replenish salt)
- The spray arms (They usually get clogged at the small holes where the water should spray out of)
- Us less heat (High heat can leave white visible stains on glass)

Hope this helps :-) - J.Q

Glasses not clean and shiny

Dishwashers have a part usually called a separator or accumulator which traps the dirt from the water during the wash cycles while the water is continuously recycled to clean the dishes. At the end of the cycle the separator is flushed out and the trapped dirt goes down the drain. If it doesn't get flushed out the dirt builds up till it starts showing up on the dishes. Some separators have a hole on top and one on bottom with a valve which stops up one hole or the other depending which cycle it's running. The valve can be stuck or broken causing the problem.

Dishwashwer not cleaning properly

You can try one of the cleaners sold for this purpose like glisten, dishwasher magic or jetdry dishwasher cleaner. It may not be getting enough water due to the fill valve clogging up. You can check this by small amounts of water slowly with a cup in the wash cycle and quickly opening the door to see if the upper sprayarm is turning. If more water helps you need to replace the valve.
