F5. 5 Flashes. Sprayarm Blocked (not present on VBL version. On 1 digit display will show as F and flashing start led).

F6. 6 Flashes. Water valve (WV1) is switched on but flow meter (FM) senses no impulses (less than 10 impulses in 10 secs) and the water indicator (WI) is at a low level

FB. 12 Flashes. Motorised Diverter Valve

FC. 13 Flashes. Water Hardness Sensor Failure

A fault with no fault code indication = faulty module

These codes should cover the entire range of Whirlpool dishwashers.

Test Mode


Make sure the appliance is empty of water before running Diagnostics as it does not pump out before starting to fill and therefore you could overfill the appliance.
Open the door and set the program to the first program. (Normally rinse).
Turn the power off.
Press and hold the start button and while holding turn the power on.
After a little while the start button will flash, release the button.
Press the start button once and close the dishwasher door.
The machine will now run through a diagnostic routine.
If memory serves me right it takes about 20 mins.
The machine will stop during diagnostics if an error is found and will display the error code. If no error is found it will complete the diagnostics and end the programme.

To exit diagnostics at any time just press and hold the start button till the programme is cancelled

Thanks a million . I discovered there was very low water pressure last night. I turned on the submersable pump in the attic and hay presto everything was perfect.

Thanks for getting back to me . I will save the list you send

Thanks

Hi Everyone,

First post here with a problem with my dishwasher. The whole wash cycle seems to complete and then it goes into this seemingly endless (hours long) cycle of a pause of a couple of seconds, then a brief pump sound and a single green flash from the lamp, then a couple of seconds pause, another pump and single flash and so on.

When this first happened a few weeks ago (during those few weeks of snow and generally freezing weather) it did seem to help to pour a kettle-full of boiling water into the bottom of the machine so I guess it may well be temperature related.

Is this the single flash as quoted below, and, if so, how can I test or replace the NTC?

Thanks in advance,


Stuart
