    Hi there, I have just moved in to a new house and can't get the dishwasher to work. The start light is continually flashing and when we try to commence a wash cycle it seems to want to continue to drain the machine before switching itself off. No instruction manual supplied with the dishwasher - Whirlpool Modulogic Model ADP951. Hope you can help because my wife wants me to manually wash the dishes!!!

    I had a leak of hot water under the sink, turned off the dishwasher at the wall and turned off the water. Had plumber come and install a new tap and hose. Now my dishwasher is flashing green light and will not work at all.

Have a look underneath dishwasher by removing front bottom access panel, the one touching the floor. Look for a round plastic disc about size of 4 jam lids together, centre front of dishwasher. Inside of it is a foam disc that will float up off the base of the dishwasher if water causes it to do so. This floating up will trip a switch. Clean base of dishwasher of water and maybe test the switch with multimeter. Reset fault by holding down start button.

follow this steps and fix it. GOD BLESS YOU

Heating Element

If lights are flashing on the control panel, the heating element might have burned out. The heating element heats the water up to operating temperature. After a set amount of time if the temperature isn't reached a light on the control panel might start flashing. The heating element can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter.

Check Fault Codes

If the display lights are flashing and there is an error code in the display window, check the wiring diagram and tech sheet in the dishwasher that will provide information on the fault.


Drain Pump

If lights are flashing on the control panel, the drain pump might not be working properly. For two-wire drain pump motors check them for continuity using an Ohm meter. If it's defective You'll need to replace it. Drain pumps are not repairable.

Touchpad and Control Panel

If the lights are flashing on the display the entire touchpad and control panel assembly might be defective. If the display works but the dishwasher functions are all out of synch, or some of the buttons don't respond properly the entire touchpad and control panel might need to be replaced.

Touchpad

If the display lights are flickering for no reason, the touchpad might need to be replaced. Sometimes when the touchpad is defective the display lights are flashing randomly.

Try running a cleaning cycle with no dishes. If you have hard water, try adding a little CLR, or cleaning solution. Check the bottom of the washer for clogged bottom drains. Also check the manual if you have it. Sometimes holding down the button for almost a minute will reset the systems alert for cleaning. Unplug and let it set for a few minutes. Good luck

Whirlpool ADP951,not operating


My advice, go buy a new one. If money is tight, go to the clearance aisle at Home depot and look for a scratch/dent discount model to replace it.

Old dishwashers were never good from the beginning. No point in fixing it - it was never designed well.

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!

Whirlpool ADP951 modulogic - not working


try holding down the on button for three seconds and sometimes it will complete the cycle. ours doesn't start the whole time. check your water regulator valve under your sink, as it may be leaking which may cause the problem, in the process of replacing mine, but can't find the psi value

Whirlpool ADP951 Dishwasher


Processor board sound bad. May be a loose plug ( or corroded connection on the plug ) . Unplug the dish washer from the wall plug before servicing. The open the front panel to expose the panel control board. Unplug the panel plugs and inspect them to assure no corrotion is apparent. If you see corrotion, use a pencil erracer to clean all contact points on the board and clean the plug the best possible. Plug the dishwasher plug back in the wall and check the unit for proper operation. If the operation is not correct, replace the circuit board. I hope this helps

Whirlpool GU2548 green light flashing, nothing working


I have had the same problem with my the same dishwasher. The manual says that "the dishwasher has malfunctioned. Call service to check heater element". I called service and they are saying that replacing the heater element and possibly the electronic panel may be required. Total cost (part + labor) = $350-400!! I am very very upset with Whirlpool right now.
