Default The white balls - where do they go?
Model Number: DU945PWPQ2   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 5 - 10 years

Hi,

The dishwasher hasn't been washing good lately so I pulled it apart and was caked with dish-washing detergent we were using a while back (also messed up the detergent tray). I tried to clean as much as as I could and found two round white balls floating in the opening just under the top round thing you have to unscrew. I found a video on the Internet with the same model dishwasher and it showed one white ball on each end where the drain impeller is located - so I did that and it didn't drain well if at all. I see in the part sheet it should have 3 not 2 balls. Anyway, I'm going to put one on the right side under the black drain impeller cover and one above it???? Is that correct, or should I just put the two back above it? What will be the best considering I only have two balls, not 3?

Thanks.
