    Yes. All I had to do was press the Air Dry button for 10s and this unlocked the controls.

We have a whirlpool ADG 7800 dishwasher ,getting a beeping sound and start button flashes 12 times? Any help


Hi
.
Ok try this and see what happens.
.
Hold the start button again till it beeps
Then select the first cycle on the left which should be the rinse cycle
Then turn the dishwasher off
Then press and hold the start button and with this held in turn the dishwasher on.
Once the start light is flashing let go
Now press the start button once and close the door.
.
Now it will run a 12 minute test cycle. If it goes wrong it will drain the water out and beep. So open the door and count the number of flashes from the start light inbetween the pause and let me know.
.
Regards

If the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it will stop working and lock the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, all buttons are non responsive).
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

all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle 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 (ie. 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).
I Hope this works for you.

DISHWASHER was locked now unlocked but won't run. Goes to drain/Cancel when you push the Normal Cycles


Wondering how you unlocked the dishwasher. Normally you would have pressed Heat Dry for about 4 secs.

I don't this action would have caused the problem. For dishwasher to run you need the door lock switch to operate. If door is not closed it will go to Cancel.

Check item 12 in this diagram.

I have a Bosch dishwasher purchased in 1996 or 97. The dishwasher stopped working part way through the wash cycle. The on/off light does not come on. The on/off light does come on, at times, when you...


It sounds like the problem maybe with the door lock circuit. This is a safety feature that is the door lock mechanism, it completes the circuit to allow the dishwasher to run when the door is locked. Reading your trouble note you state the light goes out when you attempt to close the door. Light out means there is no circuit through the door lock mechanism so the dishwasher will not work. Take a look at the lock with the door open, make sure it seats properly, though it maybe opened internally, this would require a professional to fix.

Willnot start just flashes twice then pause then twice again when wash cycle is selected but it does empty the base of water if you manualy put some in then it goes back to flashing its code or thing


most problems with dishwashers stem from abuse of the door locking switch because it gets used so often. I would check that switch on the door does something keep it from latching ,does it work or if it lartches does it close the switch when the door closes. I would venture to say that is your problem

Whirlpool Dishwasher power surge results in flashing clean button


I'm not sure what the sequence would be on your particular model as Whirlpool dishwashers can differ in operaiton. However, if you remove the lower kick panel under the dishwasher door, there should be a tech sheet either directly behind the panel, or tucked inside the door. The tech sheet will list all troubleshooting tips and any fault codes that the owner/operator's manual does not list. This is the SAME sheet the repairman will reference when they come to your home on a service call. Please let me know if you still require assistance. I hope this helps you.
