    I had a problem with the whirlpool APD5966 showing a fault code F8.
    If you clean the bottom of the dish washer , unplug it for 10minutes, turn it on .. it will show the fault code F8 .. then just hold the start button in until the dishwasher starts... it worked for me.

Error message f8

Hi girijyo,

F8 means you have a blockage in your drainage pipe, try cleaning all the filters and the drains, then closed it up, held the start button until it restarted. let us know if this works.

Error code F4

The F4 error code on your washer indicates a problem in the electrical circuits of the washer... and not end-user repairable.
This problem requires a technician to test the wiring circuits to diagnose the problem.

F3 on Whirlpool dishwasher ADP7949

F3 error fault code
The heating cycle is not working. The error is indicated after several electronic checks are done over a 25 minute period. Therefore if the heater heats too slowly or the heater is open circuit or indeed the electronic control PCB is defective, each of these will indicate F3. The twist is, if the NTC is fluctuating in its reading it also can indicate F3 and not F1.

if this is happening right at the start of the cycle, then fault will be drain pump jammed. if it is happening after filled with water, then fault will be the circulating pump jammed
