SOURCE: Drainage blocked on Whirlpool ADG

two things to check
if drain is plumbed nito a spigot on the sink trap, check that ther spigot and drain hose are not blocked - this is very common
also see if you can get to the drain pump and check there is nothing jamming the impellor. also if you have access to a multimeter, check if the drain pump is powered up

SOURCE: whirlpool adg 7550 starts cycle then beeps and

6 flashes indicates water intake fault ie machine is saying it has not filled with water within the required time.
-Check inlet hose not kinked or blocked.
-Next, check inlet valve is OK (check with ohm meter-should read approx 4k ohms). If no circuit thru valve, replace.
-Could also be fault with water indicator switch (much harder to access and diagnose- located underneath sump on right hand side).
-I have also had this occur because of a faulty flow meter. Flow meter measures the volume of water as machine fills. Flow meter is large plastic chamber located on left hand side of machine (accessed by removing left hand side panel). It has a sensor on the bottom with 2 blue wires. Unfortunately again, very hard to test this component without specialist equipment.
Hope this is some help- not sure how technically minded you are, but checking inlet hose for kink/obstruction is a good place to start, then advise calling service technician unless you are a confident DIYer

We have a whirlpool ADG 7800 dishwasher ,getting a beeping sound and start button flashes 12 times? Any help


Hi
.
Ok try this and see what happens.
.
Hold the start button again till it beeps
Then select the first cycle on the left which should be the rinse cycle
Then turn the dishwasher off
Then press and hold the start button and with this held in turn the dishwasher on.
Once the start light is flashing let go
Now press the start button once and close the door.
.
Now it will run a 12 minute test cycle. If it goes wrong it will drain the water out and beep. So open the door and count the number of flashes from the start light inbetween the pause and let me know.
.
Regards

Clean light stays on and will not run on our Kenmore 665 dishwasher.


if you have a whirlpool/ kenmore dishwasher and the clean light is flashing 7 times then pauses and then repeats, it is a problem with the heating circuit.
follow this keypad operation: push the high temp wash, air dry, high temp wash, air dry. this will put the unit into a service mode and it will run a short diagnosis cycle. after it gets done, about 5-7 minutes, then it will reset and allow you to use the unit again.
make sure the water is hot enough at your faucet at least 120 degrees, and the door is getting closed tight.

Start light flashing wont start cycle, what does it mean


count the number of flashes- this indicates fault ie will flash 4 times stop, flash 4 times stop. To clear fault, hold start button for 3 secs. Try running another fast cycle- if fault reoccurs count flashes: Number of flashes:1=NTC fault, 2=Flood switch activated, 3=Heating fault, 4=drain fault, 6=water inlet fault, 7=flow meter fault, 8=water level fault

F7 error


Raise your water supply temerature. Next open door and within 3 seconds hit hi-temp scrub, then energy saver. Do this again. Close door and latch, then push reset button.
