Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

My whirlpool ADP 8540 starts, fills, then stop and flashes 6 times, pauses, and flashes 6 times repeatedly, until I end the cycle. What is this error code for? Can I fix it myself?


Answers :

6 Flashes means water valve is switched on but flow meter senses no impulses (less than 10 impulses in 10 secs) and the water indicator is at a low level. Water Valve Closed or blocked.

\015\012Water inlet valve defective. Flow meter defective (leads to FM failure).

\015\012\015\012\015\012-------------------------------------\015\012Sounds like when the heating element cracked and shorted, the surge going backward may have taken out the control board.its the heater problem for the six blinks which you are referring.  Replacing the control should solve your problem. get the part at http://www.affordableappliance.com   
\015\012---------------------------------\015\012A clean indicator that flashes/blinks 6 times and then repeats, indicates a problem in the dishwasher which should be investigated and not just the control 'reset'! That is why the control will not let the dishwasher start once such a condition is detected.
If the dishwasher's electronic control doesn't detect a water temperature increase during the main wash cycle, that symptom can occur. No water temperature increase could be caused by a problem in the heater element, its in-line thermostat, the related wiring or a problem in the electronic control.
It is also possible just the washer not spraying properly (possibly from blockage in the filter or problem in the pump), the dishwasher not filling sufficiently or draining prematurely or even a problem in the door latching mechanism's switch(es) could cause it.Once corrected, the error display may have to be cleared from the control manually. That can usually be done by putting the unit into diagnostic mode by pressing the key sequence 'Heated Dry, Normal, Heated Dry, Normal' and then pressing cancel.

Model#lds5811bb--started making noise coming from the water inlet area(bottom left). 3/4's of the way through the cycle, noise became louder and then an error code "le" came on. We tried turning breaker off, then we tried in the rinse only cycle, but 5 minutes into it the "le" code error came on again. I'm fairly handy, so I'm not sure what part I can replace to maybe solve the problem. I can't afford to spend a couple of hundred dollars for a repair man to fix it. I'll appreciate any suggestion
