This sounds like a control board issue to me, possibly the board connected to the display panel.

The diswhasher won't stop running

The motor in the front is the dryer motor. This will keep running until the dry cycle is complete. If it is beeping and there is no other display or light flashing then this motor is faulty and needs replacement.

Check for obstructions inside in the bottom first and or the pump might be clogged. If it's not some type of obstruction or clog it is likely your motor has died or is almost dead. Start planning on replacing your dishwasher. I suggest to go with a higher end brand. Kitchenaid Superba EQ, Electrolux Wave-Touch, Bosch 800 Series for example.

F4 message on the top drawer, fisher paykel. I clean the filters and arm every week or two.

There 2 possibilities with this error:
  • Fault with water fill (only on machines with level-controlled fill)
  • Note: Lights blinking, pump running and controls dead indicates an over fill fault
2)--4 Flashes--Draining failure. Drain pump, control board OWI or water indicator defect

God bless you

We have water leaking out of the left side of the dishwasher occasionally. About 1 in 3 loads will leak. Most of the time it is a small leak 1/4 cup or less but once it was a spray out.

One (or possibly both) of your door seals needsreplacing. It's more likely to be the lower door seal as these usually go first. This seal isn't visible like the goalpost seal that runs around the sides and top of the wash compartment. If you open the door, you can feel this rubber seal when you run your fingers along the bottom of the door on the inside. Be careful though, as there is often a build up of dirt down there!

I don't advise buying any parts until you are certain of where the leak is coming from. Identifying the source of the leak (and therefore which seal to replace) is relatively easy but the best way is to run a wash cycle with the front panel of the door removed. It's quite easy to remove, but you might need a T20 T-Star screwdriver to remove it. Sorry, I can't remember exactly what the fixings are on this model.

A simpler - but not always accurate method - is to check by look and feel. If the water seems to be coming from the sides of the door panel at the bottom when you run a wash cycle, it's the "goalpost" seal that needs replacing. These are easy to obtain and replace - they simply push into a slot.

To test the bottom door seal, run any wash cycle and, when it's finished, stand to the side of the washer and open the door. There is a white plastic panel under the door. Have a feel around on top of this. If it's wet you probably need a new lower door seal. These are much harder to replace as it involves removing the door panel and partially releasing the hinges. I don't recommend this as a DIY fix unless you are competent, confident and have good instructions - i.e a service manual!

Whichever seal you need, they cost around $30 / £20 each.

Please rate this solution if you find it helpful. Thanks.

Error codes flashing

Hi, This is mainly due to control panel failure. This unit does not ventfrom the front like most do, so there needs to be some clearance above the top of the tub to avoid blocking the vent fan, otherwise moisture gets trapped in the machine and works it's way into the control panel eventually..

Ive got a flashing clean light and the dishwasher won't run. Is there a reset button or a common part that causes this problem?

Flashing clean light on a Whirlpool dishwasher is a heater malfunction (sorta) this failure code is generated when the unit does not sense a 5 degree rise in water temperature with in 15 seconds (give or take depending on model) some of the earlier models could show code under certain circumstances such as incoming water to cold.

With control off alternately press high temp scrub and heated dry till all the lights flash on and it will go into a diagnostic mode hit cancel/drain button twice and retry using the dishwasher if the code persists try running Your kitchen sink until water is hot then running the dishwasher if the code comes up again begin inspecting the heater in bottom of wash tub for damage or signs of shorting also pull out from under the counter to inpect wiring to the heater, if these look good test the safety cutoff towards the front bottom of the unit small black and silver button sized componant with two wires to it for continuity.

Still ok remove the thermistor from bottom of pump and clean it and test the ohms according to the tech sheet on the back of the toe panel on front of dishwasher, if this is ok test run the dishwasher with a high temp scrub option selected and test voltage to the heater at the two connectors directly at the heater if there is no voltage and You have properly checked the previous items the control has a bad heater relay and will require replacement.
