SOURCE: Intake/drain light flashing

I have (had) the exact same problem with my Miele. Here is what (appears) to have fixed it:

1) Disconnect the inflow line at the water source. Its the connection that looks like a garden hose. Use a screw driver to remove the washer inside, the pull out the little filter with needle nose pliers. My was clogger with particles from the washer. Clean with soap and a tooth brush.

2) Disconnect the outflow line at the garbage disposal. My was moderately clogged with food (Note: my son overfilled the garbage disposal before running. It may have backed up).

This worked for now at least. Remeber, as irritating as red lights can be, it prevents the motors and pumps from burning out when you have clogged plumbing.

SOURCE: flashing light

I had this problem at home too, it turned out to be a kink in the water outlet pipe. I straightened out the kink in the pipe, put duct tale around it to strenghten it and the dishwasher has been working perfectly since.

SOURCE: Whirlpool dishwasher clean light flashing

That means the control sensed that the heater in the d/w did not operate 3 times in a row. so the unit locks out. First remove the kick plate and you may have to pull the unit out from under the cab, but check your heater. use a meter to see if it reads open, if so order a heater assy it will come with a new control replace it to. If your heater checks good press in sequence normal wash , heat dry ,normal wash,heat dry , normal wash , heat dry three times within 6 sec all the lights will come on then hit cancel. What that did is reset the control and clear that fault. Keep in mind that d/w does not heat it's own water your incoming water temp should be 120. the d/w will maintain that temp. when starting your d/w first turn on your hot water till it gets hot then start your d/w this insures your unit fills with hot water and not cold

Try running a cleaning cycle with no dishes. If you have hard water, try adding a little CLR, or cleaning solution. Check the bottom of the washer for clogged bottom drains. Also check the manual if you have it. Sometimes holding down the button for almost a minute will reset the systems alert for cleaning. Unplug and let it set for a few minutes. Good luck

Hi Jodie,

An F6 fault code - indicated by the green light flashing in sequence next to the start button - is indicative of a water inlet problem.

First of all check that the water tap the dishwaher connected to is fully open. If this does not work check that the feed pipe from the water source to the appliance is not blocked.

If neither of these two things are the problem then you will need to order a new flow meter/ reed switch and this will sort your problem out.

The Whirlpool UK spare part number you'll need is 481241868368

Hope this helps

How to reset whirlpool dishwasher adp4501/5


whirlpool dishwasher problem adp 4501 - I had a problem with this machine not starting properly, hunting, with the start light flashing apparently continuously the pump also going on and off in time with the flashing.
After looking around a number of forums I cleaned out the sump gently with a sponge which did not help, then followed this up by pouring a kettle of boiling water into it. This had no immediate effect, but after a few hours the machine started and ran properly again.
Cost no money and saved me the hassle of taking it out and stripping it down - well worth a try.

My dishwasher model adp 941 won't start - start led flashes


exactly the same problem today with an AD9520

Don't know the cause but from reading other posts re dishwasher problems I tried holding start but on for 5 - 10 seconds and it seemed to clear the symptoms at least. It ran for a short while and stopped but the flashing had stopped and I could start a wash cycle which is now running!

I have a whirlpool ADP4400 the green light is flashing and the pump continues to pump but the cycle will not start


I had this exact problem with my dishwasher but i managed to fix it today. It was such a simple problem, the water outlet pipe had a kink in it and wouldnt let the water drain. I straightened the pipe, put duct tape around the kink to strenghten it and the dishwasher worked straight away. I hop this helps.

Whirlpool GU2548 green light flashing, nothing working


I have had the same problem with my the same dishwasher. The manual says that "the dishwasher has malfunctioned. Call service to check heater element". I called service and they are saying that replacing the heater element and possibly the electronic panel may be required. Total cost (part + labor) = $350-400!! I am very very upset with Whirlpool right now.
