Whirlpool Quiet Partner DU943PWK00 not draining
« on: March 10, 2014, 08:21:37 AM »
I have replaced the pump assembly and the check valve, and the dishwasher still does not drain. Anyone had this trouble?
I was wondering if the solonoid switch may not be engaging. I check for voltage and have it to the solonoid. There is what looks to be a vacuum line from the switch to the tub. Not sure what would activate it. Looks like it plugs into a solid recepticle. Any help? RWF

What happens during the drain cycle?
Can you hear the motor running when it should be draining?
Hope you find our site helpful.

Today I observed the motor running forward and reverse. The dishwasher was draining quite slowly. I'm wondering if the two white balls might be obstructing the water flow. How are the balls supposed to be placed? RWF

The white balls just sit in there, if this is the unit I think it is, I have had a lot of problems with the skinny white drain port that threads into the pump above the motor getting clogged, and of course take the drain hose and blow threw it towards the drain to make sure it's not obstructed, hope this helps.

It does thanks. It drains very slowly. I was wondering if a white ball may be blocking the drain port. That's what it acts like.

No the white balls wont block the drain port. Locate the drain outlet under dishwasher just above the motor, remove the drain hose and unscrew the plastic port from pump and inspect.
