To clean the Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner 3, gather all of the materials, empty the dishwasher and wipe down the appropriate components. Clean the dishwasher on a monthly basis to prevent the build up of debris and dried food.
Take all dishes out of the dishwasher, and remove any food that has settled in the bottom of the unit. Cleaning materials should include distilled white vinegar, baking soda, a sponge, a screwdriver, a toothpick, dish soap and a multipurpose cleaner. Note that certain Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner models have different door panel types and may require a different cleaning solution.
Remove all of the racks from the dishwasher, and ensure that all of the holes in the spinning arm are clear so water can run through freely. Use the toothpick to remove any debris that has built up in the holes of the spinning arm. Afterwards, wash the filter if necessary. This filter serves as a screen that catches large food particles to prevent them from clogging the drain. Wipe the door seal with a vinegar-soaked cloth. Clean the utensil racks, and then load them back into the unit. Run an empty cycle with baking soda and vinegar to wash out all of the cleaning chemicals. Finally, polish the front panel with an appropriate surface cleaner.
