SOURCE: Dishwasher WHIRPOOL WP 79 LYMPIA F4

Hi,

F4 is typically related to a drainage problem.
If the water is not draining from your dishwasher, verify the following:

Verify that there is not a clog in the drain hose or air gap. This is typically the reason that a dishwasher won't drain and the clog is usually where the drain hose attaches to the garbage disposal or sink drain pipe. Remove the hose and clear any clogs, then reinstall.

Verify that the pumps drain impeller is working. You can reach the impeller from inside the dishwasher after removing the lower rack, spray arm, and arm support. This typically involves removing a few screws. Once upper parts are removed, inspect the drain impeller, which pushes the water toward the drain port, for any cracks or missing blades. If the impeller is defective, the water will not drain properly and you would need to replace it. Inspect the sump area for any debris or broken glass that could be blocking any ports.

Verify that the drain valve is working; many are controlled with an electric solenoid that opens the valve, sending the water to the drain. There is a chance that the solenoid or the diverting lever could be stuck which would prevent the water to drain. If so, try to free up the solenoid and lubricate the lever. Otherwise the solenoid or pump assembly may have to be replaced.

Verify that the motor is turning/ working and verify that there is power to the motor. If the motor hums but doesn't turn, it may need to be replaced. Motors can get stuck if not used regularly. If the motor is defective, the water will not drain and you would need to replace it.

There are ways to test the pump and motor with a multimeter. If you are not comfortable with doing this, you may want to have a plumber test it for you.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

My dishwasher whirlpool wp 79 lympia keeps on beeping due to a drainage block. But now I can't stop it beeping or to reset the dishwasher in order to start the program from scratch


Unplugthe power cord to your dishwasher. You can do this by manually removing thedishwasher from the wall and unplugging it, or you can flip the power switch toyour kitchen at the circuit breaker (although you will need light to drain thedishwasher hose). 2 Put on your gloves,and, using your screwdriver, unscrew the screws from the kick plate of yourdishwasher. The kick plate is the panel just below the door of your dishwasher.3 Place your bucket on the floor in front of the dishwasher. 4 Unhook the drainhose by pinching the ends of the clamp and sliding it down the hose. Remove theother end from the pump. There will be two hoses in your dishwasher. The drain hoseis the one that leads from the pump to the underneath of your kitchen sink. 5 Pointthe hose into your bucket to drain any debris. Twist and scrunch the hose tohelp remove the waste. 6 Test the hose by running water through it, and thenreattach your hose in the same manner in which you detached it from yourdishwasher.

In my dishwasher Whirpool ADP 8967 after the washing cycle start the drying cycle when start it I got the error F7 and the machine stop the cycle. Can some one help me?


Hi simone_b_630,

F7 is known as a fill fault.


1) Remove the filters and the mesh filter, clean out the black grid in the bowl carefully. Don't burst the membrane inside it.

2) Try the machine again after resetting it. (Reset it by holding the start button for 8 - 10 seconds)

3) If the fault persists, take off the left hand panel and unplug the flow-meter, located bottom front of the large plastic water matrix.

4) Plug it back on, reset the machine and try it again.

Also make sure the fill hose isn't kinked and that water is actually entering the machine.

* If you found this solution helpful, please rate 4 thumbs up and leave a small testimonial. :-)

I turn on the dishwasher you hear a cycle of water and then turn on the light F7 and the dishwasher stops.


f7 means a water flow meter problem. Either your dishwasher is not getting proper water pressure, or the flow meter is bad. Check to make sure you have good water pressure to the dishwasher, and then check that your water is coming in at a good flow rate. If both of these are ok, then replace the flow meter. If your house water pressure to the dishwasher is good, but your water flow coming into the dishwasher is slow, then your dishwasher water valve is probably plugged. Some valves you can take apart and clean out, and some you will need to replace. Good Luck,

F7 error indicates a fault with the water flow meter .

Check the sump filter at the bottom of the dishwasher, then close the door and turn on the power. then hold the start button with the + and - buttons under the LCD display, until the drain pump starts. This should then reset the dishwasher.

Hope this helps .

Whirlpool dishwasher ADP5962 F7 error code


emmanuelr is spot on with this advice. The dishwasherr had been idle for a few months so as advised disconnected and reconnected the connection to the water flow meter and job done. My friend you are a scholar and a gentleman thank you so much. You are not an apprentice to me.
