I have a Whirlpool ADF951, it has power to it and was working fine, the power light is on and the green light to the far right of the cycle lights is flashing, I can only get any response if I hold the start button in for about 10-15 seconds, The machine stops the light flashing and makes the noise like it is starting , that goes for about 20 secs then returns to the flashing light stage, any idea's please

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the light flashes, pauses, and then repeats. When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...


-high temp wash

-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry


All the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cycle finish (1-2 minutes). You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal. If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (i.e. element, thermostat or wiring). It rarely happens but it could also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed (slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door when you close it).



Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee
