Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers

Open Question

I have a Whirlpool ADG937 dishwasher (9 years old) which will not complete a 65c wash cycle. It starts Ok and runs for a long time but then continually bleeps, when I open the door the programme indicator light is on the rinse cycle. If I reset the programme to 65c it may do the same or occasionally it will finish the cycle. I have tried salt top-up, descaling and filter cleaning all to no avail. Is the programmer faulty (can I bypass it?)or should I replace the washer?

I had a hotpoint engineer try to fix this type of problem.
He insisted that there was something stuck in the bottom of the pump.

Sure enough there was.
1. Unplug your dishwaser at the wall.
2. Remove the grill under the bottom rack.
3. Ensure that the filter is free from food and other obstacles and clean the filter.
4. Before replacing filter etc, get a piece of metal coat hanger wire and care fully insert it down the channel under the filter to free any lodged items. You may also see a small white impleller try to turn this with your finger or the coat hanger wire (this is the info from the engineer!).
5. replace filter and retry a wash.

This routine fixed or machine twice and will hopefully fix yours!

Don't forget to rate me!

fyi
The third time about 1 year later this occured again and even hotpoint gave up as they could not fix the machine. (after multiple visits). I think that the two flashing lights are were a red herring and the dishwasher had a separate intermitten fault. Hotpoint replaced the unit for a mimum charge. Callout + 40

Lets try the following hope this works

1.- unplug the appliance, isolate it from the electric supply.
2.- Remove the kitchen unit plinth and check inside the inspection panels below the door to see if there is water in the base.

If there is, sponge it out and then try the machine again.

Runs forever! even on Normal wash...help !!


Check to make sure you heating element has not failed. Dishwashers of today heat the water periodically through out the cycle and if the element has failed. The heating delay light is the indicator that tells you that it is trying to heat the water.

Will Not Run


I had the exact same problem. The tech came by and suggested to run the diagnostic cycle to clear up the error. Nice guy didn't charge for the time. He said Whrilpool has a poor software design. 
Problem - LED blinks 7 times when the temperature doesn't come up to the degree F required for the wash. This may happen if someone took a shower minutes before starting the dishwasher.
The Tech said, Whirlpool should have allowed a straight forward reset by the customer (instead of disabling the machine for a tech to come by and fix the minor issue).
Here is the solution. 
Solution - (is pretty much the same to clear up the other software glitches as well)
Try "resetting" the control board by running the diagnostic cycle. The cycle completes in 15 minutes.  
The details are in the service manual. The manual can be found hidden behind the tow plate (at the very bottom front of the washer). 
The diagnostic cycle may tell you the problem. It also helps clear up some of the software gltiches.  
It is easy to run the diagnostic cycle. 
Just the buttons in the following sequence. The sequence should be complete within 6 sec.  
heated dry -> Normal -> heated dry -> Normal 
This will trigger diagnostic cycle of 19 intervals. Pay special attention to the intervals 18, 17, 9, 6, 4. 
Interval 18 - displays your controller module number (should be letter 'd' followed by number 0 or 1 or 2 or something. Note that down for future reference. 
Interval 17 displays 'software generation number' Note that down for future reference. 
Then wait until you reach interval 9.  --- clean LED turns on - then an open or shorted thermister is detected. 
-- Sanitized LED turns on - then the washer detected greater than 100 deg F temperature 
Interval 7 
-- Soaking/sensing LED should NOT come on (unless food soil is present). 
Interval 4 -- Soaking/sensing LED should come on


Let the cycle complete and then try running the normal wash. Hopefully the possible glitches are cleared by now and you should have no problem.  
If this doesn't work, time to call the expert tech.

Soap dipenser


Try this... Wipe out the soap dish with white vinegar and a soft cloth.. make sure you get everything off the edges of the door and look for any nicks, blemishes or deformation of the dispenser door to make sure it is not mechanically binding up when it is cycled open. If Ok.. then.. clean your drain filter.. then.. start a wash cycle using the hottest setting ( without any dishes) .. and after about 10 minutes or so.. stop the process and open the door and add in 2 cups of white vinegar.. Let it complete the wash cycle.. When complete..try running a dishless cycle on any setting with detergent ( use about 1/3 less than you usually use) and see if that dispense adequately. If that works, then the next time you load the washer. make sure you don't have anything up against or limiting the door from opening. Hope this helps..
