I have the solution! Had error 4 and had the repair guy come....he said its caused by too many suds...if you are using tablets that have rinse aid as well as rinse aid, it causes to many bubbles, these get sucked down the two little outlets (located at the bottom of the dishwasher door, easy to see if you open the door completly) and make the water level in the base seem higher than it actually is which triggers the over flow button. Now to fix it is SUPER hard....NOT! Just pull out your dishwasher, and tip it back slightly. The water stuck in the base will trickle out...not much but will take 5-10 mins. Then turn it on, run on a rinse cycle to be sure its all gone! Easy Peesy. I called whirpool about this, and why they could not tell me how to fix it is beyond me......they told me to press and hold the start button...i dont think even they know how to fix it! So...I got to do this under warranty, now hopefully you get to fix it for free and we all win. Yay!

SOURCE: my dishwasher is coming up

I just had the same thing, same model. After cleaning the filter out, the problem remained. I then read on another forum that it helps if you tilt the machine backwards for a few minutes (which involved pulling it out of the cavity in the kitchen). Did this and it now seems to be working. Hope this helps you.

Im getting error PF when trying to start my whirlpool carbio. Also getting error code f25 what does this mean?

There is or should be a booklet on the inside of the machine between the tub and on the front panel. Tells you what the err codes mean. First thing to check on these machines is the drive belt pulley located on the bottom of the machine. I went through a lot of headache and confusion trying to run diagnostic modes and watching how to videos to get my machine to start going through the cycles until the end. The lid lock keeps coming on and off so you think it's that and try fixing it to no avail. And on and on trying to find the err code in diagnostic. I finally gave up and when I was loading it on to the truck to take it to the scrap yard I notice the drive belt has come off and cut completely through the guard. Causes problems the err codes don't catch. The belt pulley comes loose causing this. Start there. Trust me on this one.

Whirlpool adp6000ix not cleaning properly

I would suggest getting a de calcifying agent and putting the washer through several cycles. Sounds like the dump valve may be getting plugged up.

Can or how do you test an oxygen sensor 2000 Hyundai Accent to find out if it is working properly? I keep getting error code P123. I have changed the oxygen sensor, but still keep getting the same err

There are two oxygen sensors. Change the other one. Make sure you are installing the correct sensor in the correct location. One is before the cat the other is after the cat. (upstream and downstream)

ADP6000WH/ADP6000IX--Whirlpool Dishwasher.(new) My problem--Water not getting hot--i have it connected to the cold water--should it heat the water ?

9d561c5b-7c7e-4515-8a01-fbfa8f762c34.jpgerror 3 not heating..on wix6000 /or / ADP6000WH
same boards .
rip out the the main mother board with all the black boxes ,and the transformer on it,,there is 1 black box its the biggest of them all ,next to the fuse with the blue cover on it ,with care take the black cover off with a screw driver carefully, not to damage the lower half of the internals,the lower section must not be damaged all ,once the cover is off you will see a copper coil on one side and on the other a set of breaker points ,at the end of the points ,get a screw driver and push in the outter point inward just a fraction,and bingo it will work again,of coarse its a temp solution,you will need to get a new breaker box from tandy or dick smith or simlar place to keep it going long term ..
hope this helps guys and gals ,please take extream caution when working on such dangerous power sourses ,and always make sure the power cord is removed before and repairs or tweeks..

Hello - I have a Compool 3600 system and recently I started getting an ERR 1 message on my control center. After doing some research, I ordered a replacement temperature sensor (TS5L with red and green...

With the information that you gave above I come up with this.
1. You got an error 1 message which indicates a bad WATER TEMPERATURE sensor.
2. You installed the sensor and you got the same message
3. To test it you removed the sensor and got an error 3 instead.
This is what identifies the problem.
The sensor that you swapped must have been the FREEZE TEMPERATURE sensor and not the WATER TEMPERATURE sensor.
The error 3 code only comes on when the FREEZE sensor is diabled or disconnected.

Solution: Trace the TEMPERATURE sensor and replace this sensor. The original freeze sensor is probably still good if you still have it.
Check out this manual and refer to page 38 "problem solving"
Refer to page 18 for the low voltage wiring diagram to find and trace the water sensor

F5 error code

when F5 comes up on the Duets it means "water temperature Sensor Error". what you need to check is the sensor, (which you have indicated has been changed), the heating element and the element relay. check all the connections to the Sensor, element and the relay first. hope this helps.
