Jeff Willener: Hi Angelo,
I'm not an appliance technician but after doing some digging here are a few
things for you to check according to the troubleshooting section of your
1) Water is turned on.
2) Overfill float is able to move, release by pushing down.
3) Using the correct soap (i.e. no dish soap or hand soap)
Outside of the above I do not know. Keep digging and may have to call an
appliance repair person.
Karin Gregor: I hate the silverware basket! Has anyone else had trouble with it? So far
that is my only complaint with it.
BroccoliBeefed: @Karin Gregor, I can't tell you how many times I just wanted to take that
silverware basket and throw it on the patio when I had my Whirlpool
dishwasher. Worst dishwasher I've ever had, and not just because of the
stupid placement of the silverware basket
Jeff Willener: Hi everyone, it's been over a year now and I want to give a quick update.
So far we haven't had any real issues. For a while the dishes would not
dry very well. I called Whirlpool Support and they said try the drying aid
first. Since starting the use of the aid that hasn't been a concern.
Beyond the minor drying issue, the lights and buttons have not bothered us,
cleaning has been great as long as we don't overfill the silverware caddy
with unrinsed silverware. The front does get pretty dirty from closing and
has to be wiped down frequently; also I have only had the clean the filters
once. All-in-all, so far good buy.
janine boswell: Thanks for getting back to me. I looked at the model again in the store.
The light does seem far back but I think that we'll be ok. I purchased it.
Skeeter Verasammy-Parsons: I have this Dishwasher and it is 1 year and 5 day old today. Today it
started to make a loud noise when I open the door. It sound like the
springs. Any suggestions.
Rich Alexander: How is the noise level?
Floord ford: A small feature I would like to see on this washer is bottom rack fingers
that fold down like the top rack. It would be ideal for washing things such
as a saute pan that needs to be washed on its side.
Jerome Davis: Try the high temperature wash option on normal wash.
Jonny Cee: Have you found this dishwasher doesn't dry very well? There is still lots
of water puddled even on heat dry.
Kontata10: whirlpool gold dishwasher.........heating coil has burned a small section
of the interior wall so that the water is going into this hole.....can this
be repaired or should I start shopping for another dishwasher.....H E L P
janine boswell: Is it a problem viewing the indicator light that shines when cycle is
complete? Some reviews say that that is a problem, they can't tell when
dishwasher is done and have to keep opening the door to find out..please
respond ASAP as I am purchasing today... Thanks!!!
Dave Garofalo: I have a problem with my current dishwasher where the cups flip over and
fill with water--drives me crazy. Do you have a problem with cups flipping
Jeff Willener: Every now and then with items which don't weigh much, small tupperware for
example. So generally no, but that could be how we load the dishwasher by
placing heavier items on top of or against those lighter items. I've been
using this now since January 2013 and I'm still quite pleased. It's quiet
and still cleans very well.
Dave Garofalo: Thanks! Oh, one other thing, how often do you have to clean that filter at
the bottom of the dishwasher?
Jeff Willener: We generally pre-rinse and the filters after four months of use are still
clean. Here is what manual says: * 1 - 3 loads per week, scrape dishes only
- twice per year, scrape and rinse - once per year. * 4 - 7 loads per week,
scrape dishes only - every 4 months, scrape and rinse - once per year. * 8
- 12 loads per week, scrape dishes only - every 2 months, scrape and rinse
- every 4 months.
Jerome Davis: I'm very disappointed with Whirlpool. They've done away with the hard food
disposer models. My mmom has a Kenmore dishwashe, which is a rebranded
Whirlpool dishwasher. It too has the filtration ssystem. I just normal and
heat dry. Dishes come out clean. Heat dry is weak.
BroccoliBeefed: Whatever you do people, please don't buy this dishwasher or any dishwasher
Whirlpool makes (Nutid, Renlig, KitchenAid, Jenn-Air, Whirlpool, Estate,
Amana, Kenmore) 1. Rack wheels will disintegrate and fall off 2. Silverware
rack in door is the dumbest thing. You'll hate it 3. Within 2 years or so
it will start redepositing food debris on dishes. (Sani-Rinse just bakes
that stuff on harder) :\ 4. They don't last. Within 4 years, you'll want a
new dishwasher. By this time it won't clean well
BroccoliBeefed: Some people have a lot of plastic dishware - not a good idea for
dishwashers. They won't dry, and they have a tendency to flip over. Glass
and ceramic work much better in dishwashers
