Whirlpool Dishwasher Problem
« on: December 04, 2014, 05:49:03 PM »
Hey Everyone,

Very glad to have found this forum. Hopefully some of you appliance guru's might  know whats going on.  A week ago  I noticed that the dishes were not looking very clean after running through our normal wash cycle with our Whirlpool DU1055XTPQ4 .  I noticed that there was probably 20% of the liquid detergent we have used for years still in the detergent tray.  I have run the dishwasher several times since and same problem.  Any suggestions?

Inside the pump is a screen behind the chopper blade that can be plugged up. This restricts the amount of water being pumped up through the spray arm resulting in soap being left in the dish.

Thanks for the quick reply.  Is there somewhere I can find the service manual or is this not a DIY job?
