Having problems with your Whirlpool 24 in. ADP6940 Dishwasher ?

Have a Whirlpool Dishwasher 6ADP 5540. Starts cycle - fills water then about a minute into it the start buttons flashes 6 times and will not continue on. Very rarely, the cycle does continue on. Have turned off at the main switch. But still have this problem. Look forward to your reply. Cheers, Jodie


Answers :

Hi Jodie,
\015\012
\015\012An F6 fault code - indicated by the green light flashing in sequence next to the start button - is indicative of a water inlet problem.
\015\012
\015\012First of all check that the water tap the dishwaher connected to is fully open. If this does not work check that the feed pipe from the water source to the appliance is not blocked.
\015\012
\015\012If neither of these two things are the problem then you will need to order a new flow meter/ reed switch and this will sort your problem out.

I have a AEG OKO_ FAVORIT 4040 dishwasher which has had very little use despite its age. The problem is that the switch that detects an over-fill is activated all the time and the pump continues to try and empty an already empty dishwasher even when the main switch is turned off, the only way to stop this is to turn it off at the power point I have had some sucess deactivating this switch by tilting the dishwasher forwards however because of the angle it sometimes overflows when filling.

My old Neff dishwasher S4132 is constantly taking in water even when switched off! I can drain it ( every hour!) by putting it to drain cycle but have to turn off the mains supply when leaving it even for a short time. Awaiting a plumber as the tap to isolate the supply has broken but am interested to know if a new aqua stop will solve this problem or could it be something else??

Bosch SHX46A (6 years old) Selected regular cycle, pressed On and closed door. Cycle did not start normally. Pump runs, but no water is coming into the DW. I confirmed the water supply line is turned on. I opened door, turned off On/Off switch, then poured water into drain. Then turned On/Off switch on. DW began pumping water OUT of the DW. Also, it doesn't matter if the door is open or closed - if you turn the DW on, the pump will run. I suspect a problem with the electrical controls, or perha

Hi - my Viking dishwasher has developed a problem where the pump runs continuously, whether the power switch is ON or OFF. After the power is turned ON, the troubleshooting guide indicates that there is too much water in the dishwasher. (One of the pot symbols on the display flashes continuously to show this indication.) I am unable to switch between programs, e.g., from quick rinse to pots & pans. I cleaned all the filters to no avail. I had to secure the circuit breaker in order to turn t

My wife opened door during cycle. When she closed door it would no longer run. Looking at problems and recomendations on similar models, I replaced the board. Did not fix the problem. I have checked the fuse and the door switches for continuity and all seem ok. The only lights on the panel that come on are: under cycle- Pots & Pans, Light. Under Options - Heated dry. No other lights work and the dishwasher does not operate.

GU1500XTLS3 Periodically won't start. Dishwasher has power because pressing cancel causes dishwasher to start draining (even though there is no water). Door switch works because opening door prevents starting drain cycle. No other button on control panel will work except for the 'air dry' / 'lockout' button.

I actually don't know what type of Bosch I have. I know that is a problem, but maybe you can still help. It has a simple panel that says: Pot Scrubber, regular wash, quick wash, rinse and hold. When I turn on quick wash, sometimes it says 38 min. 45 min. 56 min. We want to keep it at 38 minutes and we don't know why it varies. If we have to open it mid-cycle, it switches to a higher cycle time. How do we set it for 38?

The dishwasher won't stop cycling now, everything seems to work normally other than it won't stop cycling. I've attempted turning off the breaker- no luck.

We'll turn it off and on again a few times to reset it and it will start up again eventually. We've had an appliance guy look at it multiple times. He's replaced a part or two for it but the problem continues and he isn't much help. Anyone else had any similar issues with this model of dishwasher?

We have a KitchenAid KEBC147KSDS06 24" conv. oven. After putting it through a clean cycle, I tried to preheat it to conv, bake @ 350 deg. The display comes up normally and the fan runs, but after 5 sec. the temp disappears from the display and 'Lo' appears in its place. The conv. fan continues to run but neither upper nor lower element heats. Following a suggestion, I tried to reset the oven by turning off its circuit breaker and powering back up, but it did not correct the problem.


It depends how long you had the self-clean function running. The oven is known to overheat and damage the thermostat during self-clean.\015\012\015\012See postings on some user forums.\015\012\015\012 ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDS02SRSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Dishwasher - Bosche - SHV43A03GB - When the main power switch is ON, even with the door open the pump/motor continues to run (ie. Stop-cycle does not operate). However, the wash-program itself does not run, even with the door closed (ie. No water entering the dishwasher, even though water supply is on and feed lines are clear - not kinked). It is like the program is 'stuck' and I cannot seem to get it to reset.
