Whirlpool adp 8540 - 7 flashes

I have a whirlpool adp 8540 dishwasher, when I start the cycle it runs until it begins to fill, then it empties and the start button flashes in sequences of 7 flashes
I have cleaned the water inlet pipe, but no change

    I found on another site that the fault code indicates that there is a problem with water flow, so I removed cleaned and tested the water inlet valve - this worked ok, so I removed and cleaned the reed switch on the water flow meter (cockroach gunk), I also bend it closer to the impellor - it has just finished a cycle, so as far as I am concerned it was a problem with the water flow meter

    The cycle mentioned above was the only cycle that the dishwasher ran for, so I went to an electronics store and purchased a reed switch (bought 3 since they are so delicate - $1.50 AUD each) and compared this to the one in the dishwasher.  This showed that the one in the dishwasher was always 'on' (closed circuit), and not 'pulsing' on each pass of the magnet in the impellor.  I have replaced the original reed switch with the one purchsed and the diswasher has been working ever since.

    it wont spray water, ,,,,it starts puts a bit of water in then goes through the cycles with no water spray? i got heaps of water pressure goin in.



    sometimes is flashes then nothing? so i was told to hold the start button down for a few seconds, it then emptys the water inside then nothing?

    Is the fault a ntc? heat regulator?

    Cheers

If this is the machine with just a knob for the wash cycles, and one button to start the wash cycle, you will have to replace the timer. There is no reset that I know of.

A symptom like this is commonly caused by a failing wash pump motor. If you are having this problem and the dishes are not getting as clean as they used to, the motor is most likely the problem.

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!
