F3 on Whirlpool dishwasher ADP7949

My dishwasher starts out fine, but after appr. 45 minutes it stops and shows error F3.
When I open everything seems to be okay, except it hasn't finished (no water in the bottom or anything like that), but the soapdispenser is still closed.

I do not know if these incidents are connected, but the first time it happened we came home and one of the relays had gone out (electricity to the kitchen plus more).

I hope someone can help me. :-)

I assume it is most likely the heater element has failed, or wire connections from the control board to the heater have frayed (in the door hinge), or to a lower probability a fault in the PCB or thermister

F3 error fault code
The heating cycle is not working. The error is indicated after several electronic checks are done over a 25 minute period. Therefore if the heater heats too slowly or the heater is open circuit or indeed the electronic control PCB is defective, each of these will indicate F3. The twist is, if the NTC is fluctuating in its reading it also can indicate F3 and not F1.

F3 error showing


F3 means the Dishwasher thinks it's water temperature in the tub is over 80oC. So when the unit stops see how hot the water is. The unit has a temp sensor which is part of the element which maybe faulty, the element maybe faulty or the Motor controller module is faulty. I'd try the Motor Controller module first as replacing the element can be a tricky job if you haven't done one before. If you have a double dishdrawer you can swap over the Motor Controller modules (main computers in the front of each drawer) as the top and bottom are the same part, inturn you will prove 100% if this is the fault or not without buying a new controller. Cheers

Open the dishwaser while still filling now keeps going to error


After reading a few of the other Haier models troubles, I pulled the unit out and tip it at 45 degrees backwards for around minute. Water pored from the back of the unit, once cleaned water up reinstalled unit and all seems to be back in working order.
