Thanks for your continued help – I have not had time to work on this today and I probably will not until Monday night. I think a solution is near. I checked the air gap, it has one – so that is not the problem. I fixed one problem last night, with the drying liquid dispenser. I am not sure if it is fixed, because all my dishes are fully hazed, so I can’t tell if it is still hazing / clouding them or not
Drying liquid dispenser:
When I replaced the soap and drying liquid dispenser before I did so at Chile’s authorized Whirlpool dealer, bringing the defective part to them and receiving a new piece. It was a different color but it fit perfectly. I assumed they had given me the correct piece.
Last evening I removed it and inspected it very very very carefully against the original broken one (fortunately I had kept the original one). This time I noticed that the new replacement has an extra electrical connection – therefore it must be for a different model. Some of the numbers printed on it are identical and some numbers are 1 digit different. I think they gave me a wrong part, a part which requires a different electric circuit to operate.
I rebuilt the original unit, using some parts from both. I will test this.
I did hook it up to the hot water circuit. If the liquid dispenser does not fix the problem then I would like to change the ion-exchanger. I cannot find the ion-exchanger on the parts diagram. Are you sure it has one? Could you tell me what is the number of the piece please?
