My dishwashers won't fill correctly

If your dishwashers does not fill then please check to see if the water taps at the back of your dishwasher are turned on, and that the pipes are also not squashed or kinked.

In order to be able to fill, it must firstly be able to drain. Please see the issue below "My dishwasher wont empty" for more advice on plumbing drainage.

My dishwashers won't empty correctly

Please check to see if your waste hose has been installed correctly. If your dishwashers empties into an under-sink waste system, then please ensure that the capped end of the waste spigot is removed. Please also check to see if the filter at the bottom of the dishwashers is free from any blockages and is clean.

Check that the pipe has not been kinked or even trapped somewhere, as any of these two can result in the waste water failing to empty out of the dishwashers correctly.

My dishwashers has a smell coming from it

If you are finding there is a smell coming from your dishwashers, then we recommend running your empty dishwashers on the hottest setting you can, using our Limescale and Detergent Remover which will hygienically clean your appliance and will also stop the smell from reoccurring. We recommend that you carry out the above, once a month to maintain it.

My cutlery has become rusty / brown

Pots and pans can become rusty or brown when they are cleaned in the dishwashers.

Rust can also spread onto other items like the tub of your dishwashers or other cutlery. We would recommend that you refrain from washing pots and pans that are made from cast iron in the dishwashers.

My glassware / dishes are being left with white / cloudy marking

If you are noticing, that at the end of a wash cycle, your dishes and / or glasses are appearing to be cloudy or white, then this could be due to a possible deposit of calcium. We recommend that you use our dishwasher salt. This salt, improves wash performance and at the same time protects your dishwasher.

My dishwashers has no electrical power supply

Check that the socket your Whirlpool dishwashers is connected to is live by plugging in and testing another piece of equipment such as a radio.

Your Whirlpool dishwashers comes fitted with a 13 amp plug and lead, please ensure that the correct rating of fuse is being used. If you are using an extension lead you might want to try testing your machine with a different one.

Always ensure that your on/off or start switch is in the correct position and that the door is closed firmly at the 3 o’clock position.
