Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Whirlpool error code "F7" is indicative of a failed "inflow of water". Simply stated, the water is not coming in. There are various possibilities that could lead to this error message:

  • low water pressure (check to be sure);
  • defective water in valve (most likely);
  • defective water level sensor (likely);
  • faulty controller/logic board (unlikely but a possibility).
Repair/corrective action would require checking the:
  • water inlet valve. This page would show examples;
  • inlet tube/hose;
  • inlet filter;
  • all other components in the water IN area.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

    I think to remember that F7 on whirpool is a filling problem.


    Start checking that the drain hose is not clogged, and that water supplies are filling water into the machine.


    Remove the filters and the mesh filter, clean out the black grid in the bowl, be very careful and do not damage the membrane inside .


    Try the machine again after resetting it by unplugging again for two mins.


    If you still get the error, remove the
    panels to access the
    flowmeter and unplug it, that should be located at the bottom front of the plastic water matrix. Plug
    the machine power back on, and try it again.

    If you have not worked on a large appliance before, better calling a technician.

    Always unplug power cord when you service the machine.

    Try entering model number here to get schematics.

    Here is also a general diagram :

Dishwasher not washing or drying dishes properly


F7 - Flow meter failure
Water inlet valve (WVI) is switched on and water indicator (WI) is on (full).
  • Flow meter (FM) sends too few impulses (less than 10 imp. in 10 sec.).
  • Water tap closed during water inlet
  • Water inlet hose blocked
  • Water inlet valve (WV1) defective
  • Flow meter (FM) defective
To erase the failures, you must push the start button longer than 1,5 seconds.

Dishwasher won't start - I get an F7 message on my ADP5966


Remove the filter on the floor of the machine, including the metal grill. Press & hold the start button (like you do when you want to cancel a programme). this will drain the water out of your clogged up drain outlet. Clean your filter and grill and replace it. My guess is that the sensor in the drain (a little glass tube) measures whether the water going out is clean enough to decide that your dishes are now rinsed correctly. If your filter's clogged, the water going down the drain is still dirty. After a while it gets sick of trying and stops the machine. F7 in whirlpoolese may mean "Clean my filter

Error code F4


The F4 error code on your washer indicates a problem in the electrical circuits of the washer... and not end-user repairable.
This problem requires a technician to test the wiring circuits to diagnose the problem.

I had the same problem. Indicator flashing. F7 displayed. Nothing seems to work.
The following worked for me:
Remove the filter on the floor of the machine, including the metal grill.
Press & hold the start button (like you do when you want to cancel a programme). this will drain the water out of your clogged up drain outlet. Clean your filter and grill and replace it.

My guess is that the sensor in the drain (a little glass tube) measures whether the water going out is clean enough to decide that your dishes are now rinsed correctly. If your filter's clogged, the water going down the drain is still dirty. After a while it gets sick of trying and stops the machine.
