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.

How do I put the dishwasher into diagnostic mode?


Hello friend, thank you for your inquiry!
From the information you have provided you would like to place your Frigidaire dishwasher into a diagnostic mode. I have reviewed the dishwasher and do not show a diagnostic mode available. Based off the information you have provided you may be experiencing an issue with your timer or knob. I would suggest performing a factory reset on your dishwasher and you can do that by flipping the breaker off for at least ten minutes. Since it could be an issue with either electrical components you may need to seek guidance from a professional technician. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

LG LDS581 dishwasher HE error mid cycle


HEATING (ELEMENT) ERROR // Water heating error
The manufacturer has assigned this error or fault code to indicate a problem with the water heating circuit. Turn off the circuit breaker to the dishwasher for 30 minutes, allowing time for the appliance to cool; then restart the cycle. If error returns, check the heating element for continuity and check the wiring harness for any obvious signs of damage. If the heating element shows infinite resistance after testing with an Ohm meter, replace it.
