Whirlpool dishwashers are very easy to use and do an extremely simple job. Although it may appear complicated, dishwashers are actually quite simple. The control mechanism, intake valve, and pump are the main components of a Whirlpool dishwasher. Each of these components plays an important part in the Whirlpool dishwasher's operation.

The control mechanism is usually located behind the control panel. It's basically an electronic-mechanical system that controls almost everything. Higher-end brands use a computerized system.
The Whirlpool dishwasher's water supply is located at the intake valve. This valve is only for letting water in. The pump does, however, "pump" the water. The pump is powered by an electric motor and works in two ways. The pump directs water towards the spray arm when the dishwasher is in the wash cycle. The pump directs water to the drain hose when the washer is in the drain cycle.
These parts can often be broken but are easily replaceable. The dish rack is the most common part that gets damaged. Many times people mistakenly place the wrong dish on the right track. Keep in mind that plates, cups, and mugs have a different rack to those of plates. It can cause rack damage if it is misplaced.
