Having problems with your Whirlpool Dishwashers ?

The start button flashing continuously and the filter area seems to be full of water but when I take it out it is perfectly clean. I have switched the machine on and off several times but each time the start button indicates a fault. I have tried holding down the on button so as to stop the start button flashing so that I could select a program - this did work once and I selected my program but 10 mins in it stopped and started beeping... I have a ADG7460 machine - HELP! I'm going crazy!


Answers :

Please clarify what you mean by "..but when I take it out it is perfectly clean.." are you saying the water in the filter area is clean.

Hi, I have a Dishlex dishwasher. It's an electronic model, from about 92 I think. The model I thought was B8557WW. It is very hard to see the model number because it's almost washed away. Is the model number maybe located anywhere else on the machine? Could there be a manual or circuit diagram hidden somewhere on (in) the machine? The fault is that it wont start. It reacts to some of the front buttons, and beeps, but not all, and not the start button. Before it stopped working completely, some o

Hi, I have had a few issues with my ST663 machine. The current problem: the rinse cycle light keeps flashing and it doesn't start when you shut the door. I have tried holding down the right button but it beeps twice and nothing happens? Also tried holding both buttons down for a while and still no success. I got a new electrical board installed not that long ago so not very happy hoping it not a big issue. Do you have any other things that I could maybe do?
