make sure the float or metal probes in the unit are clean.they sense water and if anything is on them it will cause a malfunction in the unit.

SOURCE: DWF 61 wont end programme

After a number of visits by an engineer, who just guessed at what it could be, and then ordered a part, changed the part on another visit, I insisted that a 'senior Engineer' visit, and be allowed sufficient time to make sure the problem had been solved. The senior engineer visited a week ago, and finally diagnosed what I had been saying for six months, " The water heater is not getting hot". The senior engineer visited yesterday and changed the 'HEATER UNIT DWF61' part number MS-1801925 (UK). Just before he changed the heater unit he found an electrical connection disconnected, so it may have been the cause of the heater unit not working, although he changed the unit anyway. All working fine now, so will renew my maintenance policy.

Lets try the following hope this works

1.- unplug the appliance, isolate it from the electric supply.
2.- Remove the kitchen unit plinth and check inside the inspection panels below the door to see if there is water in the base.

If there is, sponge it out and then try the machine again.

Float Switch

The float switch may be hung up and this can cause the dishwasher to be stuck in a cycle.

Timer / Control

If your dishwasher gets stuck in a cycle first try shutting off the breaker for at least 5 minutes if this does not correct the problem you will need to replace timer/control board

How do i reset my whirlpool adg 7460 dishwasher ? programme seems stuck on end cycle?

Unplug it, move timer to start and plug back in. If it still seems stuck at the end it is almost certainly the timer. If it starts as normal, suspect the drain pump or pressure switch

Hi I have a Whirlpool dishwasher ADP5740, Condenser. My grandson pressed the start button before I had set a programme, now the light is stuck on the pre-wash and the start light is flashing and it...

If you have a reset or cancel button try that. Look in your manual for a reset
procedure or troubleshooting section. It is just stuck in a cycle and needs to be reset
or cancelled.

You can cancel the programme at any point by holding down the last button on the right hand side for about 10 seconds until it clears (its the same button you use to get it going again when you open up the door).
