Machine is possibly not filling with correct amount of water if this light comes on early in the cycle

Do a "key dance" between normal and heated dry , going bak and forth six times. this will rester the heater fault. That is the clean light flashing code. Now you have to find the cause. Most likely is that there were suds in the last cycle or the door doesn't close smoothly. If the door sttrikes the cabinet in any way it will cause that problem.

Whirlpool adp 4404/5. Green light flashes 7 times !! Any idea ?


F7 - Flow-meter failure

Symptom: water inlet valve (WV1) is switched on and the water indicator (WI) is on (level reached).

Could be:
1. Water tap closed during water inlet
2. Water inlet hose blocked
3. Water inlet valve (WV1) defective
4. Flow-meter (FM) sends too few / much pulses (less than 10 imp.in 10 sec.)
Flow-meter counts wrong (or the sump is full in less than 30 sec. Causation: Hose felt down and slipped the disc of the valve. The effect is a displacement of the valve tappet).
5. Aquastop defective
6. Flow-meter defective

What does the F7 code mean for my whirlpool dishwasher ADG6230


F7 or 7 times flashing
Flow meter failure

Symptom:
Water inlet valve (WV1) is switched on and the water indicator (WI) is on (level reached).

Reason:
  • Water tap closed during water inlet
  • Water inlet hose blocked
  • Water inlet valve (WV1) defective (mesure resistor ca 3,5 kOhm)
  • Flow meter (FM) sends too few / much pulses (less than 10 imp. in 10 seconds). Flow meter counts wrong (or the sump is full in less than 30 second).

Causation: Hose felt down and slipped the disc of the valve. The effect is a displacment of the valve tapped.
  • Aquastop defective
  • Flow meter (FM) defective

I have a adg7560/1. the cycle starts but ends after a few minutes. the light flashes four times


Run the dishwasher through a test mode


Test Mode


Make sure the appliance is empty of water before running Diagnostics as it does not pump out before starting to fill and therefore you could overfill the appliance.
Open the door and set the program to the first program. (Normally rinse).
Turn the power off.
Press and hold the start button and while holding turn the power on.
After a little while the start button will flash, release the button.
Press the start button once and close the dishwasher door.
The machine will now run through a diagnostic routine.
Should take about 20 mins.
The machine will stop during diagnostics if an error is found and will display the error code. If no error is found it will complete the diagnostics and end the programme.

To exit diagnostics at any time just press and hold the start button till the programme is cancelled

My dish washer has started to flash Err 7 on the screen and will not work. I ahve cleaned everyhting out, put drainO down the drain, turned it off for 1 week then back on again, checked that the hoses


F7--7 Flashes--Flow meter failure. Flow meter defect. Water inlet valve defect or water inlet hose blocked

make sure water is getting to your machine, its possible that the hose is kinked and not feeding water sufficiently to the machine.

alternatively, Unplug the appliance.
Take it out of it's position.
Take the left side panel off.

In the large plastic tank on the left side of the machine is the flow meter.
It's a small pcb with a 2 wire plug on it.

Pull the plug off and push it on again.
Do this several times to clean up the connection.

Ensure the connection is dry and tight.

Try the machine again.

If it still doesn't work, you'll need to obtain and fit a new flow meter to try and cure the problem.

What does erroe f7 mean?


Hi


This error indicates a fault with the water flow meter. F7 means inlet flow meter malfunction
Remove the left panel and check the flow meter, try to unplug it and plug it again.
If not OK, change the part, If you have checked 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.


Pease get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.
Thank you for contacting fixya.com

Code F1, does not stop filling, water pours out of soap tray


Are you sure it's not an F/H error?

The F/H code means the unit isn't detecting water fill at the flowmeter. The flowmeter sits just in front of the inlet valve and is attached via a hose, and off to the left of the CCU. Part link to the flow meter==> http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Flowmeter/1381535?modelNumber=GHW9250MW2
If your washer is filling ok, check the wiring from the flow meter to the control board; I've seen this harness jiggle loose and cause problems.

Whirlpool adg 7550 starts cycle then beeps and flashes 6 times whats wrong?


6 flashes indicates water intake fault ie machine is saying it has not filled with water within the required time.
-Check inlet hose not kinked or blocked.
-Next, check inlet valve is OK (check with ohm meter-should read approx 4k ohms). If no circuit thru valve, replace.
-Could also be fault with water indicator switch (much harder to access and diagnose- located underneath sump on right hand side).
-I have also had this occur because of a faulty flow meter. Flow meter measures the volume of water as machine fills. Flow meter is large plastic chamber located on left hand side of machine (accessed by removing left hand side panel). It has a sensor on the bottom with 2 blue wires. Unfortunately again, very hard to test this component without specialist equipment.
Hope this is some help- not sure how technically minded you are, but checking inlet hose for kink/obstruction is a good place to start, then advise calling service technician unless you are a confident DIYer

Dishwasher adp 4601 when switched on the pump activates.and after 2 mins start lamp bliks and pump goes off


The number of flashes indicates the fault. Reset machine by holding down the start button for 3 secs, then start a new cycle. If fault reoccurs, the number of flashes indicates fault eg 3 flashes, stop, 3 flashes stop, indicates F3 fault.
Faults listed below- advice on repair depends on which fault your machine is indicating, but may give you an idea of what to look for
1flash=NTC (temperature sensor) break- NTC outside normal range.
2flash=water leakage-float switch in base activated.
3flash=heating fault(check element.NTC,control board).
4flash=drain error-blockage in pump or drain system,or faulty water indicator switch.
6flash=water inlet fault-check inlet valve, check inlet hose not kinked
7flash=flow meter failure (flow meter measures water intake volume-large plastic weir located on left hand side of machine-reomve side panel to access)
These a most common faults, but further advice on repair requires counting flashes when fault occurs.

Start light flashing wont start cycle, what does it mean


count the number of flashes- this indicates fault ie will flash 4 times stop, flash 4 times stop. To clear fault, hold start button for 3 secs. Try running another fast cycle- if fault reoccurs count flashes: Number of flashes:1=NTC fault, 2=Flood switch activated, 3=Heating fault, 4=drain fault, 6=water inlet fault, 7=flow meter fault, 8=water level fault
