Question about Whirlpool 24 in. DU1055XTP Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Response to suggestion.

Thank you for the suggestion and we would remove the dishwasher if we could. Unfortunately we had a flood a few years ago and the floor was replace and built up another 12 inch. We have tried to remove the dishwasher but it won't quite come. So consequently I have tried to unclog from within the dishwasher and agree with you that it could be the hose close to the pump at the back. My husband has put the end of the hose which is in the basement ( where it is connected to the water source) in CLR but this doesn't go up to where the hose connects to the dishwasher. He is going to try and fill the hose with Clr and see if it then reaches. Any suggestions would be appreciated

I was talking about the water inlet line going to the fill valve. The fill valve is located on the right hand side with the bottom panel removed. From the fill valve there is a water inlet line running into the SIDE of the dishwasher tub, NOT the pump in the back. The two pumps on the dishwasher are used for the cycling of wash water and/or draining the tub. Neither pump are used for the FILL cycle. Having an inlet line under the kitchen sink would make things easier. CLR would probably do the trick, but I'm afraid that gravity is going to keep you from accomplishing what you need to do.

unfortunately not, if the tank is leaking from the casing, it needs to be replaced. i would suggest, if your not paying water tax, you can run the tank for as long as you like, just divert the leaking water into a floor drain. but i do highly recommend getting a new tank. that drip can turn into a flood in a matter of days, all depending how bad the inner wall has corroded.

Anti flood system triggered Favorit 40660 dishwasher

The problem was solved by opening the machine and finding that the bottom "Y" pipe that has 3 inputs is of extremely poor quality and perforates with pin holes allowing a small amount of water to squirt out. This triggers the anti flood and error status lights flash. The outlet pump is activated and machine does not do anything. You need to replace this hose or like I modified it to work from a 32mm Y plastic junction available from most hardware shops. The wire clamps for this was replaced by "jubilee" screw tight clamps.
I worked on a table and also removed the "Brick" placed at the bottom for balance purposes by cutting the back plastic down with a saw. This made the job very easy...

Most water supply lines are attached to the hot water supply under the kitchen sink. If not it may be accessible from the basement somewhere under where the dishwasher is located.

Regarding the issue with the dishwasher, the inlet water valve is no longer closing because of the limescale that has built up inside. That is why it fills on it's own even when it's off. Instead of replacing the dishwasher you could just replace the inlet water valve if you want to get a few more years out of it.

Dishwasher motor runs (even with door open), but no Water

I believe the problem is in the electronic board. It is getting a different signal thus not allowing it to run properly. You can have a local service technician for the company look at it but this is probably the cause.

We have a Maytag MDB7601AWW Dishwasher that is not filling with water. We've checked all the hoses and water is getting to the machine, just not in it. What do we do now?

Just inside the dishwasher usually on the bottom right in the front is a mushroom shaped "float" lift it up and down a few times making sure it ends up in the down position. if you move it slowly you should hear some clicks. do that and try to run the dishwasher if that does not fix the issue then your going to have to get a meter and see if you have 120v to the fill valve when you start the dishwasher. if you have the 120v then replace the fill valve

That would be bad news. That plastic thing is the pump, and a bad seal means motor / pump replacement or a new dishwasher. Average life of a dishwasher is about 9 years.
