WHIRLPOOL DWF A10 LIGHT FLASHING WHEN START BUTTON PRESSED MAKES NOISE FOR A COUPLE OF MINUTES THEN STOPS LIGHT FLASHES 4 TIMES

    The User Manual says that this will be due to either water supply or drain being blocked but we have checked both of those. Both clear and it's still happening.

    I think it is probably a problem with the rotary switch or the control electronics.

Hi Sharon , Im not finding your model number dwf415. See if you have high temp wash and heated dry buttons on your dishwasher. If you do, press high temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash, heated dry in that order. This will run the service mode and reset the board. If you don't have those buttons post the cycles you have or the full model number. Catriver

SOURCE: flashing light

I had this problem at home too, it turned out to be a kink in the water outlet pipe. I straightened out the kink in the pipe, put duct tale around it to strenghten it and the dishwasher has been working perfectly since.

SOURCE: ''clean'' light flashing (whirlpool Dishwasher GU2300XTLS1 model)

I had the same problem recently and a repair person came to my home to fix the dishwasher. He said he had to reset the control panel. He did this simply by making sure the soap dispenser door inside the washer was closed, then making sure the main dishwasher door was closed and locked. Then he quickly pushed the Heated Dry button and the Hight Temp wash button alternately. He said each button needed to be pushed twice within five seconds. After he did this all the lights on the control panel came on, then turned themselves off before the washer went in to a test cycle. This simple reset fixed the whole problem. Works great so far.

SOURCE: I have a whirlpool DWF

Most of the time when this happens you have a bad NTC (Feeler) device. It is the thing that looks like a finger sticking up near the sump. (it is a twist fit from underneath)

SOURCE: DWF 415 Ikea Whirlpool Dishwasher as constant

DWF 415 Ikea Whirlpool Dishwasher has constant green blinking light. Drain pump works ok (as it will pump out a jug of water if I tip it into it!) but no water comes in. Cycle stops about 30 seconds after thre is no more water to pump. Any ideas on how to fix?

Start light flashing,rince light on.machine will not start cycle


Hello. I really need the make/model number to help you accurately. However, from the symptoms you're describing, it sounds like the drain pump is jammed. A lot of dishwashers turn on the drain pump first to remove any stagnant water sitting in the bottom of the pump. Then, fresh water is let into the tub, fills to the proper amount, then the main pump starts. The lights flashing are an error code--different combinations of buttons flashing mean different things. On some models, a button light will flash a certain number of times, pause, then flash another number of times. This is a binary code telling the user what is malfunctioning. That's why I need the model number and any other info to help diagnose the issue. Thanks!

Anyone got an answer to this, as I have exactly the same fault.

Dishwasher appears to switch on OK, then after a short time (20 secs?) the pump noise stops and the green light flashes - it seems to e a sequence of 7 flashes, then stop... 7 flashed then stop.

The sequence could indicate a fault detected?

Anyone know anything about these units from IKEA, made by Whirlpool?

Thanks!

'clean' light flashes


Press the normal wash then heated dry buttons in the same sequence two to three times. The unit will enter diagnostics mode, but can be stopped by pressing the cancel button.It will clear any existing faults and makes the dishwasher to operate normally.

To prevent the issue from recurring, run your hot water faucet first to ensure that hot water is present in the entire supply line before starting the filling.

Start light flashing wont start cycle, what does it mean


count the number of flashes- this indicates fault ie will flash 4 times stop, flash 4 times stop. To clear fault, hold start button for 3 secs. Try running another fast cycle- if fault reoccurs count flashes: Number of flashes:1=NTC fault, 2=Flood switch activated, 3=Heating fault, 4=drain fault, 6=water inlet fault, 7=flow meter fault, 8=water level fault
