the F4 problem in the Dishwasher is common, and the solution is often to replace the Water Indicator unit. This is because the light-action microswitch attached to the unit often loses its spring.

Replacement is HERE if required.

Also, dismantle the sensor unit to get all the "gunk" out. There can be a carpet of white goo covering the rubber diaphragm, get the thing out of the machine though the front bottom inspection cover.

Does anyone know what the F4 fault is on my kitchen aid dishwasher? I can reset it and then start over or select another program, although after approx 1 minute the F4 error code comes up and I cannot see...


Check the drain hose. When you turn on a dishwasher, the first thing that it does is check the pump. If there is a drain issue then it stops.

I have an error code f4 on my whirlpool adp 8966 dishwasher can you tell me what it means please


F4 indicates draining failure.Your washer drain pump starts and after 4 minutes the OWI(optical water indicator) detects that mashine is 'not empty'

Posible mailfunction reasons:
The drain pump must be defective/blocked
The siphon would have got closed
The control board would have got damaged
OWI defective

Fisher & Paykel Nautilus Dishwasher


F4 is a fault code telling the controller that the water is not heating up. This can be caused by either a faulty heater plate, a bad connection between the plate and controller, or the controller itself. If you wish to fix this yourself, changing the heater plate is a fairly involved repair and should be done by someone with a high degree of mechanical ability.

What is F4 error on fisher paykel dishwasher?


Hi, 
It means your filter is dirty. Remove metal plate at bottom & scrub with a toothbrush. Clean arms as well.
Clean all around the door & pull out the lift out filter, scrub clean with a toothbrush.

CODE F4 and washer not working


Not too sure on that code, could be timer error. One thing to try would be to turn off the AC power to the unit and let it stay off for 15-30 minutes and then turn it back on. Sometimes if the unit takes a voltage spike it hashes the memory and resetting the power will clear it up, but to do this the voltage needs to turned off at the fuse/breaker box and not just the switch on the front. If you have the manual it may give ideas. I could not find the model no. you listed. Check to see if it is correct if resetting the unit doesn't help.

F4 Fault indication


F4 is a water inlet fault. It doesn't make sense if you have this fault indication with water flowing into the unit. Does the dishwasher drain properly? Usual suspects for an F4 indication would be a clogged inlet line, water supply turned off, bad fill valve, or a control board failure. Let me know if this helps, or give me a little more information on what you have done to correct so far.
