Question about Kitchen and Much More Dishwashers
My Whirlpool Dishwasher ADP 4601 has a constant flashing light and does not appear to be heating up, i have cleaned out all the filters and checked the waste, can anyone help me please ?
There is a switch attached to the door latch that may need to be replaced. (the switch is inside the door).

The number of flashes indicates the fault. Reset machine by holding down the start button for 3 secs, then start a new cycle. If fault reoccurs, the number of flashes indicates fault eg 3 flashes, stop, 3 flashes stop, indicates F3 fault.
Faults listed below- advice on repair depends on which fault your machine is indicating, but may give you an idea of what to look for
1flash=NTC (temperature sensor) break- NTC outside normal range.
2flash=water leakage-float switch in base activated.
3flash=heating fault(check element.NTC,control board).
4flash=drain error-blockage in pump or drain system,or faulty water indicator switch.
6flash=water inlet fault-check inlet valve, check inlet hose not kinked
7flash=flow meter failure (flow meter measures water intake volume-large plastic weir located on left hand side of machine-reomve side panel to access)
These a most common faults, but further advice on repair requires counting flashes when fault occurs.

Managed to track down a copy of the manual from the Whirlpool website. The red light is an electronic indicator to show that there is no rinse aid.
