How to remove water input assembly

There is an assembly on the side on my whisper quiet dishwasher, it has a buildup of water deposit in it and I am trying to remove it. I removed the hose off it and I thought I should be able to remove it by turning the piece on the inside of the diswasher a quarter turn or something. I can't get it to turn at all... Is there a trick to removing that?

    Thanks for the info jsrock516, that is what I was talking about, so I guess if there is a little leaking water through it also, you should just use some silicone on the outside to stop the leak as it can't be taken apart to replace the gasket?

If you are talking about the plastic molded piece on the outside of the dishwasher tub where the water inlet hose runs to, this piece does not come off. Its a permanent molded piece of the tub. If you break it, you have to replace the entire tub. The build up of water scale and deposits is a common problem in this area. If you remove the rubber hose and use a small screwdriver or small brush (the kind you would use for cleaning gun barrels) this is sufficient to get most of the deposits free. Flush with distilled vinegar and hot water. If I'm wrong in assuming this is what you're talking about, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

    That might work. What happens sometimes is that it can give the appearance of a leak as sediment builds up inside the assembly and creates a blockage. As water tries to enter through the hose and into the tub, it is partially (or fully) blocked and sprays out the sides. Thats why I suggest that you take the hose off and try pushing a small screwdriver or stiff small brush through to see if there are any deposits, first. I had a customer with this problem and it ended up leaking and ruining their kitchen floor.

My dishwasher drawer is not draining the water well after the dishes are washed and then is smells. How can unclog the drain so that it will drain? the filter is clean.


The pump may be worn so it doesn't pull all the water out.
Or a bad check valve so it allows water back into the washer after it was sucked out

I have a Kitchenaide Whisper Quiet Ultima dishwasher. It will come on, but no water comes in. Is there a reset button or something that may be clogged?


Are you able to provide the model no. of your dishwasher please.

NO water coming in could be either due to water inlet solenoid not working, the controller not working or the flood switch being triggered.

Need the actual model no. to confirm likely situation.

My Maytag Qriet Series 100 Dishwasher won't drain


Check the drain hose connection at the sink drain for local blockage. If ok, you may have to tear down the lower spray arm assembly down to the deck (noting orientation and position as you remove parts). Look for clogged screens and clogged openings in the deck. You can use a vacuum hooked to 'blow' to make sure these openings are clear. Wash the screens in hot water, detergent, and white vinegar to remove water and food deposits. Make sure upper and lower spray arms have open spray holes and no split seams. Hope this gets you running again!

Child lock blinking on a Kitchenaid ultima diswasher.


Try holding the E.S. button down for 30 seconds. Does not work, you need an Electronic control assembly which can be ordered online from Repair clinic .com for $146 for your model plus shipping. This is apparently a common problem with Kitchenaid dishwashers. Just repaired one the other day. Tried everything, but as soon as the new Electronic control assembly was installed, everything was Okay. This is an easy repair for anyone who is handy at all. Please shut off power to the dishwasher by switching the breaker off or removing the fuse.

Kitchenaid Whisper Quiet + dishwasher making loud humming noise


Very likely pump motor shaft seal leaks water into bearing casing buildup of rust and consequently noise. I just replaced $112 worth of pump assy and it's back to normal. I would also buy repair manual for $10 on-line to be sure how to disassemble the sump to get to the pump.
