Re: whirlpool dishwasher will not drain model #...
Usually it is one of two problems. If you put the knob on spin and there is no noise, it is usually a bad lid switch. This can be easily checked by lifting the lid and listening for a click noise when you put it back down. If you hear a humming noise, I would check your pump for an obstruction. (Tilt the machine back and look for the white plastic with 2 black rubber hoses towards the front, center of the machine. Remove one of the hoses with a bucket and some towels at the ready to catch the water. After getting the water out of it, check inside the white plastic (pump) for any forign objects)

Most new dishwashers will try to heat the water after filling, if the heater doesn't respond, can't sense the temp, or the wash motor doesn't respond to a full tub, the control will abort the wash cycle and drain out... What is the model number? I can get more specific.
You have actually posted your Dishwasher problem onto the (garment) Washing machine forum!
However I have checked my Whirlpool list for dishwashers and for some models 'F4' stands for 'drainage' (as you have checked) but for others it mentions (quote) 'no heat, relay, NTC (thermostat), connections, underfilling are all possible'(unquote).
When there is an NTC problem with washing machines we often suggest pouring the contents of a couple of boiling kettles into the washer as it sometimes kicks the NTC into life! Might be worth doing that with your dishwasher before calling for service ;-0)
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.Start by running a bottle of dishwasher magic through it and make sure the drain line is clear.

Hi dear.According to your explanation,it's drain problem(F2 code).Please get access machine filter.Check it for any obstacle(Rug Fluff etc...)clean it & run the machine.It should get back to normal.Also check for any kink in drain hose.If that does not work you may need to replace the pump.I hope that helps.Thanks.
HI, this seems to be an obstructed hose(drain). i recommend inspecting the hoses before replacing the pump.
To access the drain hose remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to reach the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel.
The drain hose connects to the pump and runs to the sink drain (or to the air gap on top of the sink). The pump has a second hose that recirculates the water back into the dishwasher. The drain hose is roughly 1 1/2 inches in diameter. While inspecting the drain hose, check the recirculation hose as well.
When checking for blockages, disconnect the drain hose from the pump, pinch the wire clamp with pliers and slide it up the hose. Place a shallow pan beneath the pump to catch any spillage. Remove the hose from the pump; wiggling the hose may help to loosen it.
Check the hose and nipple to the pump for any debris. The only way to be certain the drain hose is completely clear is to disconnect it from the sink and run water through (such as spraying a garden hose through it at full pressure). Disconnect the recirculation hose and check it in the same way.
Reconnect the hoses and replace the clamps. Replace the lower panel and restore electricity to the dishwasher. If there are no obstructions found or debris, this will confirm a damaged pump and, it should be replaced.
