SOURCE: problem with whirlpool dishwasher ADP6000IX

Hi I had the same problem with a whirlpool adp6000ix. Although it looked fine from the inside, the base was full of water. I managed to fix the problem by pulling the dishwasher out and then tilting it gently to the side. All of the hidden water in the base poured out which cleared err4. It is now working fine. Tip: Make sure you have a couple of towels spread around before you tilt it. Good luck!

SOURCE: New Whirlpool Dishwasher filler overflows.

Actually, the thickness of the pipes should not be an issue. Simply, i think your drain pipe could be set to low.and is siphoning outand It needs to be raised about 1/4 the height of the dishwasher, so that the water stays in while filling. There is either a pressure switch or a pulsator that counts the amount of water comming in by rotation. When the correct level is reached, the inlet would automatically close and the cycle will proceed.If water is spilling on the floor however, then you have a legitimate problem which needs to be referred to the supplier.

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.

Hello,

The #4 error code on your dishwasher says it's a drainage error and that the computer didn't detect that all the water drained out of the machine. Sometimes that can be caused by a blocked filter on the pump, a blockage in the drain hose or a water level switch failure...also it can be just a electronic anomalie and the board can be reset then the dishwasher will work as normal. Or of course it could be because the filter is clogged and needs to be cleaned so water will flow through it and drain out.
I have written tips both covering how to clean the pump filter and resetting the control board,refer to them and see if they will resolve your dishwasher troubles.

Hi! I have Whirlpool ADP6948 dishwasher. It's


Hi.

F4 points at at a drain problem, often the problem is caused by a dirty or defective pressure switch. Before replacing the pressure switch it is necessary to test the drain system.

First try turning power off from circuit breaker for few minutes and see if that is enough to clear the error code.

Turn power off from circuit breaker (or disconnect power cord) and clean the drain well inside the tub. Remove any water present in the tum. Check also the drain hose at the back of the appliance and make sure it is not kinked or blocked.

If that does not work remove the kick panel at the base of the dishwasher, locate the pressure switch and clean the hose connected to the pressure switch. The pressure switch is the device that detects water level, determining when to start and stop the drain pump. The pressure switch is a small plastic switch connected to a long rubber hose. If the hose gets blocked with detergent or if the switch is defective you get f4.

Resuming:

Try resetting the appliance to clear the error code.
If that does not work clean and check the drain system.
If still no luck check the pressure switch.

Disconnect power before doing any maintenance.

Regards.

What dose e5 mean on my dishwasher


Hello tom.... e5 is a drain error - machine is not draining - check drain hoses. If your trap under the sink is blocked, or even if your garbage disposal is blocked, interfering with the proper draining of the machine, you will get this error.

Another cause is often a blockage or a partial blockage somewhere between the machine's drain pump and the sink trap. To check this remove the lower front panel on the machine [usually just 4 phillips head screws need to be removed], and then disassembe the drain hose from the pump in the lower front of the machine. Also unscrew the pump from the frame and physically check it for debris, sometimes even a chunk of glass or bone.

Once you locate and remove the blockage, and reassemble everything, the machine should work once again. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

Miele dishwasher doesn't work.error F70


When this problem happened to our machine, it was simply the pipes under the sink where the dishwasher drain pipe fits were blocked with muck. This was preventing the one way valve connecting the drain hose to the household waste from fully opening thus preventing the machine complete its drain cycle.
Solution was to thoroughly clean the sink drain pipes - plunger, power plunger and then a dose of chemical cleaner. Dishwasher is as right as rain now:)

4 flashes and beeping


4 flashes indicates a drain failure. Could be obstruction in drain system-first check drainhose for kinks, check where drain hose attaches to wastepipe spigot for blockage. If OK blockage may be in pump- disconnect from power, remove bottom panels to access under machine. Drain pump located front left- remove plug from pump, then there is a plastic tag on top of pump you must push down, then drain pump will turn and come off (it comes off easily if tag pressed correctly, so don't force it!!)
If pump OK, fault will be with water indicator switch-sometimes get full of muck. Open dishwasher door, remove filters and clean out any water from base. Right in the bottom right hand side of sump you will see a round black grill- this is water level indicator switch. If it looks blocked up, advise replacing (you can try cleaning, but replacing is best). To replace, access from under machine-again, this switch turns and pulls out, but can be quite difficult due to it being located behind the heating tube.
So, check hoses and pump, then press and hold start button for 3 seconds- this clears fault and resets machine. Try another cycle-if OK, problem solved. Recommend expert assistence to replace water indicator switch.

Whirlpool dishwasher adp550


f4 is a drain error, machine is still sesing water has not pumped out after 4 minutes of draining
1st check and see if water is still in bottom of machine if so check for blockeges under sink where drain hose cnnects to drain pipe.
if water has drained out you may have an water sensor fault or worst case an electronic control board fault
to reset machine hold the start button in for at least 3 seconds and it should do a drain and stop
