Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers

Before I started my dishwasher, it was hooked up to water and garbage disposal and water was not coming into DW. I started dishwasher and water came on but will not turn off even when I open the DW front door. What is wrong?

The water inlet valve is faulty. When you open the door, it should cut power to the valve, so your valve must be sticking open.

Replace dishwasher


Is your DW plumbed into the garbage disposal as many are? Or does it have the drain line running into a pvc opening in the sink drain line? Remove the drain line to see if water gushes out. If no or minimal water leaves your drain line from the DW, then the problem is internal in the DW. Most likely cause is a plugged screen at the inside bottom of your DW, or the pump is blocked. Best way to resolve is to get a wetvac and just suck all the water out of the inside before you remove the DW. Otherwise you will have water splashing out on your floor. If you can see the screen is plugged up after doing so, then pull the screen out and then turn the DW on. If operating normally it will go into the pump out mode first before adding any water. Turn off the water to the DW under the sink first to eliminate any concern about adding additional water into an already filled up DW. Good Luck!

Dishwasher smells like a dirty auto repair shop


Do you have an airgap valve on top of your sink or counter? Some times routed through an exterior wall. Their purpose is to prevent dirty water coming back into the DW and sitting. You can tell by looking under the sink as well. Your DW drain should never go directly to your garbage disposal or peetrap.

Dishwasher LD-1420T1 tripping power in the house?


Okay, this could be tricky because depending on who installed it, they might have wired into it. Check your garbage disposal and if you have anything else plugged in nearby, check that wiring too. Some installers have a nasty issue when it comes to hard wiring. They don't like doing it. So instead of hard-wiring your garbage disposal, they'll cut it in to your dishwasher. If your garbage disposal or anything else is wired to your dishwasher the load on the washer and the current the washer is using is too high. That's going to trip your breakers. You should probably contact an electrician and have them check the breaker box to make sure it's wired correctly. You may need to upgrade the breaker or have the dishwasher circuit upgraded. If it's an old house, it could be anything but first, check to see that nothing is wired into your dishwasher. You can tell if you have a few switches in the same outlet and turn them off. If your garbage disposal won't work and the DW won't either, then you have a wiring issue. That's the easiest way to start.

When dishwasher is emptying it is backing into sink


there is probably nothing wrong with Dishwasher itself.
Your Sink drain is stopped up or your Garbage disposal is clogged.
usually, dishwasher drain is connected to the Garbage Disposal, but if the dishwasher empties the water into the Garbage disposal, if its clogged then water will come out of the sink. Same if sink is clogged between sink and sewer.


If you fill up your sink and then water drains away, then you know your sink itself is not the problem. If its only the Garbage disposal side that does not drain, its the garbage disposal that is clogged.

Water does not drain.


If this is your 1st dishwasher and you have a garbage disposal installed, quite possibly the dw inlet fitting on the disposal still has the knockout in place. Remove the dw drain hose from the disposal and check to see if the knockout has been removed.

Can i connect my Hoover HD73M Dishwasher to a cold feed?


First off, you need a hot water feed line for your dishwasher, not cold water

Secondly, if you have a garbage disposal installed on your sink you can connect the dishwasher drain hose to the side port on the garbage disposal. That's what that little port is for anyway. If you do have a garbage disposal and hook the dishwasher hose to it then make sure you take a hammer and screw driver and knock out the little plastic plug that's inside the garbage disposal port before hooking up the hose to it, if you don't you'll flood your kitchen.

If you don't have a garbage disposal on your sink, then you're going to have to replace a piece of your sink's drain piping with a wye (Y) tailpiece. The tailpiece has a small branch that comes off it to where you can connect the dishwasher drain hose.

Regardless of which way you hook up the drainage and water lines, make sure you test out the work you did by running the dishwasher and keeping an eye on it. I can't tell you the number of times i've seen people hook up stuff like this and not test it and then when they go to use the dishwasher it floods the kitchen..... usually when people are sleeping at night. Test your work.

The drain in to the garbage diposal is clogged.  Remove the drain hose from the dishwasher and clean the hose.  Also check the inlet to the garbage disposer and clena it.

Not draining


Cat, did you remove the knockout on the disposer? If not, take a long screw driver where the drain hooks up and give it a whack. Pull the knock-out out of the disposer. It sounds like too much of a coincidence. Catriver.
