You don't state a brand or model number, so this is a bit generic: Look for a float switch which may be hanging up from accumulation of gunk on it. (generally an upsidedown plastic can shaped thing on the bottom of the dishwasher tub. (you have to take the cover off to get to the float) Another possibility would be a bad water inlet valve. (electrically open coil on valve)

AEG OKO FAVORIT 40300 When switching dishwasher on no water is flowing into the the dishwasher?


It should first be checked for correct water inlet hose with safety valve. After connecting the double-walled water inlet hose, the safety valve is next to the tap. Therefore the water inlet hose is only under pressure while the water is running. If the water inlet hose starts to leak during this operation, the safety valve cuts off the running water and the draining pump in the dishwasher is switched on. If the inlet hose with safety valve working correctly than could be some of following faulties.

  • The door of the dishwasher is not closed properly.
  • Mains plug is not plugged in.
  • House fuse in defective.
  • In the case of dishwasher models with start delay
    timer: A start delay is selected.
If you look at the lower electrical diagram then you can see that all electrical components are located in a circuit inlet valve which can be also faulty.

  • ON/OFF Switch
  • Door switch
  • Program controller (Timer)
  • Pressure switch
  • Inlet valve
  • Float switch
  • Wiring between all this components

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

Dishwasher not washing or drying dishes properly


F7 - Flow meter failure
Water inlet valve (WVI) is switched on and water indicator (WI) is on (full).
  • Flow meter (FM) sends too few impulses (less than 10 imp. in 10 sec.).
  • Water tap closed during water inlet
  • Water inlet hose blocked
  • Water inlet valve (WV1) defective
  • Flow meter (FM) defective
To erase the failures, you must push the start button longer than 1,5 seconds.

What is error message e15


What brand dishwasher? Model number might help too.
If it is a Bosch this might be the answer.
The E15 fault code means that the dishwasher is not receiving water through the water supply hose, or at least that what the machine thinks anyway.

E15= Check Water Inlet supply*


This can be caused by several reasons.

1. The filters in your inlet hose or inlet valve are blocked and need cleaning.
2. The inlet water supply valve is faulty and worn out, not allowing water in fast enough in relation to the set amount of time it takes to fill the machine for washing etc..
3. The water supply isnt turned on fully underneath the sink?

You will need to undo the water inlet hose from under the sink and check to see if there is a filter in that end of the hose and check to see if it needs cleaning. It will be of the wire Gauss type.

If not, then you will need to uninstall the dishwasher and pull it out from the cabinet to check the inlet valve where the inlet hose connects to at the bottom rear of the machine.

The valve itself will have a filter, where the hose attaches to. Undo the hose and visually check the filter in the valve for blockage/restrictions.

If the above brings no results, then you probably need a new inlet valve for the dishwasher.

What does F6 mean?


The dishwasher can't take on water. Check that the water inlet is properly connected, the stop tap valve is open and that water supply is otherwise available to the dishwasher. Also check for kinks or blockages on the water hose.

F6. means "Water valve (WV1) is switched on but flow meter (FM) senses no impulses" (less than 10 impulses in 10 secs) and the water indicator (WI) is at a low level
Water Valve Closed. Water inlet hose blocked.
Water inlet valve (WV1) defective. Flow meter (FM) defective (leads to FM failure)

We moved our sons 5 year old GE pss 26lg to our house yesterday. Plugged in and attached water. Runs fine for refrig and freezer but isn't making ice and water flow is weak. We've put rocker...


Rocker should be down but check to see if there are any kinks in the hose or if the water pressure is good before you hook the hose to the refrigerator inlet. there may be a block somewhere, including the shoot that the water comes out in the refrigerator, That may freeze up with ice if there is a slow valve leak.

Error code 16 on winterhalter gs302, any ideas please?


Error 16 on (E) versions is low water flow, recommend checking the water inlet pipes and water supply is fully turned on, that the water solenoid valve is functioning ok and that it is not blocked with debris (they have a filter on the water hose connection side), and that the inlet water pipe is not blocked, squashed or kincked.
