Washing light is flashing and dishwasher won't start


Hi

First make sure that nothing is blocking the drain pump assembly located inside the lower front panel of the dishwasher. If the issue returns after its cleaned then it means that the control board has gone bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

I have a double draw dishwasher . the child lock key comes up and the dishwasher does not start


The lock button activates/deactivates the Keylock or the Childlock functions. This button has either a key or a padlock icon. I believe that on this model it is a padlock

Keylock

The Keylock feature disables all the buttons on the control panel.

To activate, press and hold the button until you hear one beep (3 seconds). The symbol

appears in the electronic display when the Keylock feature is activated.

Childlock

The Childlock feature locks the drawer and disables all the buttons on the control panel.

To activate, press and hold the button until you hear two beeps (5 seconds). The symbol

appears in the electronic display when the Childlock feature is activated.

To cancel the Childlock feature, press and hold the button until you hear one beep and the
symbol disappears from the electronic display.

This information can also be found in your product's Use and Care manual. If yours has been misplaced you can download or print one from Fisher and Paykel's website. http://www.fisherpaykel.com/customercare/userguide/index.cfm

If this doesn't work... And I've seen these units do some odd things. Try unplugging it for about an hour (if plug is not under sink you can turn of the breaker that powers the unit). Then plug it back in and see if that works. These dishwasher like many modern day appliances have solid state microprocessors in them which sometimes need reset just like a computer.

Hope this helps.

I have a Whirlpool dishwasher model ADP951. the green light is continually flashing and will not run, help with this would be most appreciated.


Have a look underneath dishwasher by removing front bottom access panel, the one touching the floor. Look for a round plastic disc about size of 4 jam lids together, centre front of dishwasher. Inside of it is a foam disc that will float up off the base of the dishwasher if water causes it to do so. This floating up will trip a switch. Clean base of dishwasher of water and maybe test the switch with multimeter. Reset fault by holding down start button.

Pushing and holding the 'Heated Dry' button should turn off the light over the padlock symbol and get you going again.
