    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

    Very useful to know what these error codes mean!

    well done.

    Mine is an F6. Water inlet hose not blocked as that was easy to check, the other stuff may be a call out if it is :

    Water Valve Closed. .
    Water inlet valve (WV1) defective.
    Flow meter (FM) defective


    will let you all know what happens.

    Mine didn't do anything when I opened the door and held the start button could I be doing anything wrong?

    It did stop mid cycle yesterday flashing 3 times though. It has never worked right since we bought it so I think it needs to go back.
