Whirlpool adp 6515ix dishwasher start button is flashing in 4 time cycles-what does this tell me please. None of the manuals indicate what the flashing could be signalling.


Error CodeConditionCheck/RepairShop PartsClean light blinks 7 timesHeater circuit failure. Control didn't detect the expected rise in water temperature.Check the heating element and related components (wiring and control board) in that circuit.
Heating element, Electronic control board, Thermistor, Circuit wiring
Console light blinks rapidlyThe control detects a stuck button on the control panel.A failed control panel or a malfunctioning electronic control board can cause this code. Check the buttons on the control panel using a volt/ohm meter. In most cases, the control panel must be replaced. If that doesn't solve the problem, the electronic control board might be at fault.
Control panel, Electronic control board
Start/Resume light blinks slowlyIf the dishwasher door is opened or power is interrupted during the cycle, the dishwasher won't start again until the door is detected as closed and the Start/Resume button is pressed.Check the door latch and switch assembly. A failure in the Start/Resume button also can cause this problem.
Door switch assembly, Control panel, Electronic control board
Clean light stays onThe dishwasher won't start a new cycle unless it detects that the door opened after the previous cycle.Turn off power to the dishwasher by shutting off the breaker and restarting. If that does not work, the door switch assembly is stuck and must be replaced.

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!
