I have a older Whirlpool 1989-1990 Model DU7216XS-2 or DU7216XS2 that works better than anything I have seen NEW.
I have replaced a few parts on it. Upper spray-bar Lower Spray-bar - plastic bearing - spray bar cap and Filter Guard oh
and a new soap dispenser Solenoid switch - switch gasket and soap cover. Everything works great so far and the wife is
I noticed that the water level was short or shallow than usual. It wasn't even touching the float switch. So I opened the door
cycled the timer to start again and it started to fill with water again.. almost the the top of the float switch. I repeated the same
thing one more time. It then raised the float and the water stopped.
My Question is: Should I replace the Water inlet Solenoid/valve or should I replace the old fashioned timer. The timer is around $156.00
and the water inlet solenoid valve is like $23.00. What can I do to fix this problem, am I correct with my assumption to these parts or
could it be something else. The HOT water valve is fully opened under the kitchen sink, so there is plenty of water pressure to both
the faucet and the dishwasher. The water just comes out slowly to the dishwasher but not like a trickle but like medium pressure.
The inlet line set is 1/4 copper line compressed fitting to the water valve. Should I change this out to a larger appliance hose type or is this
adequate. I have never touched the line or replaced it before. The dishwasher was installed way back in 1989.
I am out of suggestions.. so that is why I am here. I have experience fixing appliances, but this is my first dishwasher experience and
I must say.. it is very interesting...
