Whirlpool Dishwasher Error Codes

Code Error Solution
whirlpool dishwasher F1 error

F1 (or 1 flash)

The code is triggered by the temperature sensor

The dishwasher’s thermistor shows this code when the water temperature is either too hot (above 85°C) or too cold (below -3°C). But keep in mind that the temperature sensor could also malfunction and cause this kind of error. Consequently, if the sensor is broken, think about replacing it. Request Service

whirlpool dishwasher F2 error

F2 (or 2 flashes)

Your dishwasher is leaking

There is a high probability that you have a leak that needs to be repaired if the system displays this error. First, you should drain the water from the dishwasher. After you check the appliance for leaks and take measures to eliminate them, the code will disappear. Request Service

whirlpool dishwasher F3 error

F3 (or 3 flashes)

Issues with the heating element or system

If you experience this problem, you may want to check if the machine is heating the water properly. If the water is not hot enough or the machine is taking too long to heat it, you may want to look at the following factors: The thermistor is broken, the heater is defective, and the connection between the heater and the main electronic control unit is broken (check all wiring and connections). Request Service

whirlpool dishwasher F4 error

F4 (or 4 flashes)

Dishwasher drain system malfunction

When your dishwasher doesn’t drain water as it should, the code appears. Try to determine if the drain pump is obstructed or has malfunctioned to eliminate this issue. You will need to clean or replace the pump if this is the problem. Additionally, you should definitely check for any potential obstructions in the drain hoses in your machine and the drain pipes in your house drainage system. Another factor is that the dishwasher drain line is located at a level that allows water to drain out before the wash cycle is complete. By raising the drain hose to the proper level, you can solve this problem. In addition, the probability of a malfunction of the optical sensor or the primary control unit is negligible. Request Service

whirlpool dishwasher F5 error

F5 (or 5 flashes)

Rotor obstruction has occurred in the drive

This error appears when there is an issue with the drive rotor (the rotating component). You almost certainly need to get the dishwasher drive replaced. Request Service

whirlpool dishwasher F6 error

F6 (or 6 flashes)

There is no water in the dishwasher

This error code indicates a problem with the dishwasher’s internal water flow when it appears on the display. You might need to examine other probabilities at this point. We advise you to inspect the intake valve that allows water to enter your appliance to see if it is in good functioning or clogged. Replace it with a new one if it is broken. Then, if there is any form of blockage in the inlet hose, you may want to clear it. A problem with the water supply is another possible explanation. At this point, it is best to check the tap to which the dishwasher is connected with a hose. It may be turned off. Turn it on to solve the problem. Call a specialist if none of these tips helped. Request Service

whirlpool dishwasher F7 error

F7 (or 7 flashes)

The flow sensor is broken

According to this error, the flow sensor has failed. Some of the difficulties listed for error F6 may also appear, such as the following problems: Your water supply tap may be blocked, the water supply hose may be blocked or bent, the water inlet valve may be defective, etc. Request Service

whirlpool dishwasher F8 error

F8 (or 8 flashes)

The water level is too high

When the water level in the dishwasher is too high, this code appears. The potential causes of this malfunction may be as follows: Due to a clogged filter and problems with the water supply system, the dishwasher cannot drain the water because the water is excessively soapy and foamy (add less detergent during the next cycle). Request Service

whirlpool dishwasher F9 error

F9 (or 9 flashes)

Your dishwasher continuously lets water in

The water pump in the dishwasher continues to circulate inside the tub. You may be dealing with either a faulty inlet valve that cannot be closed or a short circuit in the main electronic control unit. Check both parts for problems and then replace the one that has stopped working. Request Service

whirlpool dishwasher F0 error

F0 (or 10 flashes)

Some of the machine sensors have failed.

Check the sensors or their connections to the main electronic unit to determine the cause of the malfunction. Request Service

whirlpool dishwasher FA error

FA (or 11 flashes)

A problem with the optical water sensor

This code will appear on your dishwasher’s display if the optical water sensor is malfunctioning. The sensor may be faulty, but it indicates that the water in the dishwasher is very dirty. In such circumstances, an additional rinse cycle is started. If the problem persists, you may need to clean the optical sensor, which may be clogged with debris. If this does not help, check the sensors to make sure they are securely connected to the dishwasher control panel. Request Service

whirlpool dishwasher FB error

FB (or 12 flashes)

The diverter valve in the dishwasher is broken

If the diverter valve in the dishwasher is faulty, the code will light up. The upper spray arm receives water flow control from this valve. Check for problems with this valve and replace it if necessary. Request Service

whirlpool dishwasher FC error

FC (or 13 flashes)

Issues with water hardness sensor

This sensor will alert you if the water in your area is hard so you can add additional dishwasher salt to your washing cycle to soften the water. The specific sensor may have malfunctioned and needs to be replaced, nevertheless. Request Service

Kathryn Bragg

Superior Appliance Service is reliable. My range was recently repaired. Wow! The technician came on time. He’s accurate and gave a fair estimate. This is a team I’ll remain with and recommend.

Jimmy Smith

Satisfied overall. After a few days with a leaking washing machine, I booked a next-day appointment with them. A technician arrived the following day and did his best. He also performed some maintenance on my dryer and didn’t charge me for it, plus provided tips for maintaining them in excellent shape. I’d utilize them again since their charges appeared industry-standard.

Derrick French

Andrew from Superior Appliances came out within three hours of our call. The engineer was courteous and explained everything before starting. Bravo!

Jack Nunez

Fair prices, money-saving incentives, and qualified personnel are offered. To sum it up, I’m delighted with Superior Appliance Service and would suggest them. Well-informed and customer-focused. They care about everyone they’ve helped.

Calvin Summers

My front load washer gasket needed replacing, but Scott suggested a much better and less expensive solution. So pleased. My advice is only given by people who value their customers. Excellent appliance repair specialist.

Jimmy Rivera

If they can repair my damaged Bosch washer, they can do anything. My washer broke for more than a month, and other firms told me to purchase a new one. I had no doubt theycould fix any appliance until they did.

Maria Vargas

Excellent service! On time, the professional explained everything. He spent many hours replacing my faulty washer and dryer, yet the service charge was still extremely fair. Unexpected? I’d hire Superior Appliance Service again and confidently share positive feedback about them

Whitney Livingston

During the installation, the technician suggested that I put on shoe covers. He was extremely professional and knew what he was doing. He also advised me to throw out the first batch of ice produced by the refurbished ice maker (which I already knew, but the mention was so professional). The company communicates quickly and expertly. Everything was an A+. I’m a difficult customer, but working with Superior Appliances made it simple to keep my gas appliance in good working order.

Theresa Welch

A repairman told me my washing machine’s motor was dead and I shouldn’t try to fix it. Great advice was offered on buying a second. Because I’m so appreciative, I’ve suggested two friends. I’ll use them for another repair. They’re amazing!

Michelle Joyner

After repairing the washing machine, the technician further checked his work. Yes, he remained for the whole wash cycle. He was extremely professional and quick to my first inquiry, getting as much information as possible before coming to our home to fix our new fridge. The specialist came on schedule, disguised the issue and solved it promptly.

Donald Teresa

Best appliance repair. They mended my oven and helped me with other equipment. Affordable and competent staff. Outstanding service!

Matthew Reid

Called this company to do some work on my dishwasher in my house they came in a timely fashion. They tried there best to repair my dishwasher but they couldn’t so I had to end up buying a new one and they refunded me my money. Great customer service I would highly recommend this company.
