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: My Whirlpool ADP 5550 dishwasher has a red light

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.

SOURCE: Error code F4

The F4 error code on your washer indicates a problem in the electrical circuits of the washer... and not end-user repairable.
This problem requires a technician to test the wiring circuits to diagnose the problem.

We have a whirlpool adp 5440 and the start button is flashing 8 times after a cycle. Dishes do not get properly clean. What oes that mean? Thanks Sonja

The start light is flashing. I checked the bottom of the dishwasher and saw a black pipe coming out of the electric motor is leaking.
Is it possible to replace only the pipeline or have to replace the entire engine?

Dishwasher not draining

if you hold the start button in it should reset,possible cause could be a blockage in the pump or drain outlet under the sink where the drain hose connects.hope this helps.

Start light flashing

start light on and no other action could mean that the door catch has gone faulty, test accordingly and replace if needed, no wash cycle will work if this item is faulty, the waste outlet pump may be the only part that will work on some models, this is a safety feature hope i have helped if so please rate me, work safe unplug when testing
