Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

My dishwasher, a Whirlpool ADP 931, has stopped working. Possibly because the door was opened during operation, right after it was started. There is some kind of error condition indicated through a blinking Start light, but I don't know how to analyze this. This is a quite simple model with very few buttons to press. When I turn the program knob right to start it, the only thing that happens is that the green Start lights begins to blink continuously. There is also another green light

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

This light is reset by pressing two buttons in sequence 3-4 times, to reset your dishwasher press these buttons in sequence:

High temp wash-heated dry-high temp wash-heated dry

After this if the problem is back then check the door latch mechanism, if bad try replacing it. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Hello Llamaman -\015\012

\015\012The flashing start LED simply indicates an error to the user, i.e you. It does not specify what the error is. It may be the NTC, but you'll need to run the test program and observe which wash program LED - or combination of LEDs - flashes. This will give a better indication of the error, although further manual testing is generally required for which you will probably need a multi-meter. \015\012
\015\012
\015\012To run the test program: \015\012
\015\012
\015\0121. Start a wash cycle as you would normally.\015\012
\015\012
\015\012It will fail and the start light will flash, but this needs to be done so the error is stored in the control unit memory for the test program. Do not reset the washer, i.e. do not hold the start button in.\015\012
\015\012
\015\0122. Switch the dishwasher off by turning the program selector dial so the zero is at the 12 o'clock position \015\012
\015\012
\015\0123. Push the Start button and hold it.\015\012
\015\012
\015\0124. While still holding the Start button, turn the program selector one position clockwise, as you would when setting it for the prewash program. (Continue holding start.)\015\012
\015\012
\015\0125. When the LED above the Start button begins flashing, release the start button.\015\012
\015\012
\015\0126. Observe the program selection LEDs.\015\012
\015\012
\015\012Which LEDs are flashing now? (Start may or may not flash as well - this is part of the error code.)\015\012
\015\012
\015\012Thanks,\015\012

I have a Gallery 900 series GLDB958AS dishwasher. The cycle status lights (just right of the "time remaining" status window) continually blink. None of the buttons on the front panel work and every 10 minutes or so the water pump starts up for about a minute then shuts off. No water enters the dishwasher. I tried turning the power off then on but there is no change. Every so often a random cycle light will blink or light up for a minute, then turns off.

Once the "start" is pressed, the "reset" option on the same button will not turn it off. This dishwasher is in a new place we're buying, and we're not ready to run a whole cycle to see if the machine works because there's a minor plumbing repair needed under the sink which can't be done till the closing, and there could be a leak. Meanwhile the two green lights and beeping can't be turned off.


Just un-plug it for now,....then of coarse when you can run it plug it back in for test,....ya never know, just un-plugging it could very well reset itself and work fine. this is the way with alot of the newer things,....good luck ... GE GLD5800L Dishwasher

My Whirlpool Dishwasher ADP931 has stopped working. It stopped in the middle of the cycle with 2 to 3 inches of water on the floor of the compartment. I mopped out the water and tried to restart the dishwasher. The green "on" light now comes on when I press the start button. but nothing happens (no motor comes on,no water enters).Repeating the above action several times does not help the washer to restart even though the other function lights will come on when the knob is turned. saturn1914
