Question about Dishwashers
Hi folks hope you can help.
basically our Whirlpool ADP4542 won't work - it makes a mumbling noise and the info light flashes 7 times.
we know what MIGHT have caused it - the outlet pipe had frozen solid but this is now defrosted and when we retried the machine it flushed all water out and drained successfully.
i have confirmed the inlet pipe is not frozen and the outlet pipe is also clear.
however the machine now fails to function at all - jsut 7 flases on the info light and that mumbling sound.
If that's the clean lite flashing that is a fault code. That means the control sensed that the heater in the d/w did not operate 3 times in a row. so the unit locks out. First remove the kick plate and you may have to pull the unit out from under the cab, but check your heater. use a meter to see if it reads open, if so order a heater assy it will come with a new control replace it to. If your heater checks good press in sequence normal wash , heat dry ,normal wash,heat dry , normal wash , heat dry three times within 6 sec all the lights will come on then hit cancel. What that did is reset the control and clear that fault. Keep in mind that d/w does not heat it's own water your incoming water temp should be 120. the d/w will maintain that temp. when starting your d/w first turn on your hot water till it gets hot then start your d/w this insures your unit fills with hot water and not cold.
