Question about Dishwashers
Hello, I just moved in to a new flat and there is a Whirlpool ADP 4544 dishwasher. I can't get it running. The salt indicator light is steady red and the dishwasher initially makes a deep sound as if it was starting the cycle but then the green light starts flashing and nothing happens. I checked the water connection and it seems ok.
Hello there. There are three possibilities as to why your dishwasher is not starting up. Here they are:
Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.
Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.
Timer or selector switch Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.
