Dishwasher Whirlpool adg 6966, light showing 20 mins even 4hrs and more after finishing

I have a Whirlpool adg 6966 dishwasher. I turned it up this morning to wash the dishes, but when it finishied, the screen that showes minutes left showed 20 minutes. And it stayed there 4hrs after I started it! When I turn around the wheel for degrees it always shows 20 minutes, no matter what I do. I tried to reset it by shutting the power off and on, but nothing... Now I have cleaned the filter, resetted it and started it up again. It mumbled for a few seconds/minutes, then I turned it up again, and now it's working like usual. It's working empty. Can someone help me? I don't know what's the problem.

I just read this for the same problem: push sanitize, then heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, cancel, then open and close the door. It worked. The dishwasher is running correctly even as I type this.

I suspect for either of these units that the timer control boards are bad.

SOURCE: LG dishwasher ld14aw2 error

G'day
I had the same problem. With the help of a friend of mine we carefully pulled apart the dishwasher until we got to the pump.
In this location we found a small piece of white plastic had appeared (about one quarter the size of a 5 cent piece) and this was obviously stopping the impeller blade from spinning.
Once this tiny piece of plastic was removed and the dishwasher was reassembled, it now works like a dream.
Hope this helps someone else.
PS. a normal handyman/girl can do this, just take your time and carefully pull it apart, loosen the bottom, flip it over - so that the base unit can be assessed and then you can assess the pump and whatever problem lies within.

Whirlpool dishwasher adg 642 not working start light flashhin 4 times


Hello Faye,
The F4 error code is a drainage error and it means that the control board did not detect a drop in the water level in the tub so it thinks it didnt drain.
The things that could cause this are a clooged filter on the pump asm, a blockage in the drain pump or hose or even a defective control board if in fact all the water has seemed to drain out of the tub.This is how ya set the diagnostic test to clear the codes and see if it reoccurs
  • Make sure the appliance is empty of water before running Diagnostics as it does not pump out before starting to fill and therefore you could overfill the appliance.
  • Open the door and set the program to the first program. (Normally rinse).
  • Turn the power off.
  • Press and hold the start button and while holding turn the power on.
  • After a little while the start button will flash, release the button.
  • Press the start button once and close the dishwasher door.
  • The machine will now run through a diagnostic routine.
  • Diagnostic takes about 20 mins.
  • The machine will stop during diagnostics if an error is found and will display the error code. If no error is found it will complete the diagnostics and end the program.
  • To exit diagnostics at any time just press and hold the start button till the program is cancelled.

    My Whirlpool ADG 7550 Dishwasher trips out all my electrical sockets as soon as its plugged in. It failed whilst in mid wash. Any advice?


    It is possible there is a short in the electric system in the dishwasher. There are two possibilities

    1. there is a leak to the earth due to some water leakage and this causes the earth relay to trip.
    2. the dishwasher motor coil or capacitor is shorted and drops the circuit breaker.


    If it is related to 1, then best to take the dishwasher out from the cabinet and check with multimeter if power plug Live is showing short with Earth connection. You will have to find source of the water leak onto the power board.

    If it is related to 2, then isolate the motor capacitor and try again. But 2 is unlikely if the breaker trips even if the dishwasher is not turned on.


    Please post a comment if you find anything.
