Whirlpool Corp. is not only responsible for marketing various appliance brands all over the world, it also manufacturers its own line of home appliances, including dishwashers. This Fortune 500 Company has been manufacturing home appliances since 1911 and has several dishwasher models on the market. Whirlpool distributes user and care manuals with its dishwashers to explain model-specific operating instructions. Although no two models of Whirlpool dishwashers are exactly the same, there are some general operating instructions that apply to all of them.
Unlatch the dishwasher’s door and pull it open. Place your soiled dishes inside the Whirlpool dishwasher, positioning the soiled sides to face the middle of the dishwasher compartment. Add the dishwasher detergent to the dispenser located on the inside of the door and turn the cover on the dispenser to the lock it into position.
Close the dishwasher door and latch it into place. Select the cycle you would like to use on the dishwasher load, which will vary depending on the dishwasher model. Adjust the default washing, rinsing and temperature options as desired. Press the Start/Pause button to begin the cycle.
Return to the Whirlpool dishwasher when you hear the buzzer or chime indicating the dishes are finished. Unlatch the door and open it. Stand back if there is steam coming from the dishwasher.
Remove the dishes from the washer. Check the drain at the bottom of the dishwasher for debris from the cycle, such as food particles. Use a damp wash rag to wipe it out if necessary.
