Sounds like you have a heating problem. Machines with a timer are controlled by the thermostat, so it wont click on until the machine reaches the correct temperature. Is the water hot? If yes then you need to replace the thermostat and high limit stat. If not hen it will be either the stats or element. Most likely the stats.

They typically look something like this, but if you visit an online spares site and select your make and model it will give you a breakdown of all the parts. To change put machine on its side and remove the bottom panel, this will give access to the components. If not then tilt machine back and remove the front kicker plate and the the panel in behind. The stats will be at the front of the appliance for access. Hope this helps

Whirlpool Dishwasher ADP 252 model (old) It will start with the program and then just stopped. I have to turn the knob to carry on with the next step of the program. Maybe dirty? Can I clean it somehow?

My whirlpool adp 4552 keeps on flashing 7 times...whats the problem?


This is not a solution, but a start. There should be a tech sheet somewhere with the dishwaser. Often it is stuck to the back of the kick plate. In this, or possibly in your owners manual, there should be a list of "error codes" This should explain what the seven flashes mean.
Good luck

Whirlpool dihwasher adp 4552. Water comes into dishwasher, appears to start cycle then water is drained out again and light flashes to show a problem!


This is a typical anti flood activation due to the anti flood device (polystireen float and micro switch) at the base of the washer detecting a water leak / spill. This device puts the washer in pump out mode. Check to see if water at the base is causing the polystireene float to activate the switch. Dry the water and rectify the fault (normally a leaky pipe or pipe clamp) and this should solve the problem.

Ice won't dispense, suspect switch in door cover. how to remove door cover to check? Oddly enough, my ice maker stopped working AND the switch in the door (or other circuit problem for dispensing) failed...


Insert a small putty knife between the dispensor plate and the dispensor cover about 1-2 inches from the sides and press down and inwards . Do this carefully because there are 2 plastic "clips" at the bottom . Once bottom is free , lift upwards and the cover will come off . Remove the plug and it's free . There is a white contraption , large , that have 2 rods the micro switches clip onto and sometimes , the switch on the left , has the broken rod holding the micro switch . This causes no ice dispensing .

Dishwashwer not cleaning properly


You can try one of the cleaners sold for this purpose like glisten, dishwasher magic or jetdry dishwasher cleaner. It may not be getting enough water due to the fill valve clogging up. You can check this by small amounts of water slowly with a cup in the wash cycle and quickly opening the door to see if the upper sprayarm is turning. If more water helps you need to replace the valve.
