Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers
Does not filling up with water. I can hear it is trying to fill but it then stop and give 1 flash every time. The dishwasher have no display panel. I turned it 45 degrees backwards. some water ran out but it is still doing the same. I check both the inlet and outlet hoses and could not see any damage. I tested the machine with the door open and with the filter in the middle. I could see that there is water coming through as the machine try every time to start in the hole where the filter goes. I also could see little bit of water going out via outlet
Thanks for the detailed description of the symptoms that we should make it easier fault detection.
I conclude that there is a mistake F1 (1 x flash,1s pause,1 x flash).
Before anything, erase the failures by pushing the START button for longer than 1.5 second.
F1 - NTC break
Temperature out of the normal value (-3°C till +85°C)Temperature inside higher than +85°CNTC defectiveDishwasher is frozen, less than -3°C If temperature is less than -3°C, fill the appliance with a cup of warm water to warm it up before you start it. The failures F1 (NTC break) and F9 (continuous water inlet) are checked and indicated immediately after start program. Because that, too small quantity water is taked.
First, I suggest to measure the resistance of the NTC, which must be about 58,1 kOhm at temperature 20°C. Also, check wiring between NTC and board.

a.1) water never reached the proper fill/run level so the computer prevents the heater from starting and alerts the user. There should be a code list in the troubleshooting section of the user manual describing the blinking lights and what they mean.Solution- verify by sound if water flows at the same rate as the sink tap, if not then shut off the water and check the inside the connection hose for debris against the screen inside the hose end or insid ethe machine end where there is a intake valve. The debris keeps sediment out so it works but there's no auto cleaner for the screen.
a.2) Otherwise the heater itself is faulty meaning it does not conduct an electrical path or maybe overheating (could be dry) and the computer senses the wrong temperature either too high or too low.B-- Now, if you do NOT hear water filling for those first 3 minutes, 3 things could be happening;Solution- A service call to determine the reason why; heater continuity, water valve, heater relay, hi-temp fuse, etc.
b.1) House water supply is turned off.
b.2) hose is clogged (see solution a.1 above)
b.3) Drain pump inside dishwasher was clogged during the last run and old water didn't drain out (maybe some water is evident in the tub bottom).
Solution- Most dishwashers start each wash cycle with 30 second drain pump running to make sure the tub is completely emptied so the next fill cycle can't overfill. This ensures that if the user finds a 3 liter pot that flipped over during the last wash and if they dump that full pot of water into the unit to make it lighter, that the water will get drained before the new water enters the tub.
If the drain pump is clogged reset the power and restart the wash cycle. Note how much water is in the tub and see if it goes down any during those 30 seconds by opening the door afterwards. Find the clog either a bone or plastic bag or some small pice of a childs toy is stuck in the drain pump or the other end is clogged maybe by grease or bones if you have a sink disposal unit. The things they grind up drop into the drain 1" inch above the hole for the dishwasher drain tube.NOTE: There is also an overfill [float] switch if the water inlet valve gets stuck open and the water keeps filling, the drain pump is switched on until someone comes and shuts off the water supply. When the tub drains the float drops and the drainpump stops. This will also make lights blink so check the user manual for codes or call the factory service reps [1-877-337-3639].Either way, there should be instructions to reset the machine for restart. If it doesn't reset you need someone to fix the control that tripped the unit, maybe a safety fuse or a broken piece of the puzzle.
