I'm sorry to have to ask this august forum a non computer question, but my dishwasher has stopped working. I know I am unable to repair it, but having had an engineer round to look at it I'm sure he doesn't want to. He has declared the machine is beyond economic repair.
The machine is a Whirlpool ADP 4501/5 Dishwasher. The machine does nothing when it is turned on, I have checked power, and water supply and they are both OK. The light on the front flashes in a sequence of four flashes, which I believe is error code f4.
I am not trying to deprive a tradesman of work, but I would like an explanation of what f4 is actually indicating as my engineer said he didn't know. This information is usually in code books purchased by engineers, to which I (probably rightly)have no access.
If it cannot be repaired economically, I will have to buy a new one.
John B, Thanks for the suggestions. I looked at many of the sites on Sunday morning. Most of the sites are either trade only subscription services, or they are advertising the sale of code books. I did manage to glean that f4 was associated with either the internal pressure/flow switch, or a sensor on the outlet valve. The engineer mentioned neither of these, but said it was probably the CPU board, (£200.00), or the main pump, (£160.00), or both. Plus fitting!! I just want to learn what f4, actually indicates.
