Resolved Question:

Hi, have a whirlpool adg 9540, randomly when I press start it does not want to work, this has become more critical in the last days and it is not possible to make the dishwasher work. All the way to the left light is solid red, start light blinks green, any ideas?

I will be helping you today.
Please be patient as these are technical issues and take some back and forth until we can be sure of all the details.
We want to be sure we can resolve your issues correctly and as fast as possible for you.
How old is your dishwasher?
Also did pressing the start button repeatedly eventually cause it to run?
Thank you for your patience!

I am not sure how old it is as I rent this place and this is the landlord's dishwasher. It looks pretty old though.

When we press repeatedly the start button we hear water running, and it seems it will start working but it takes some seconds for it to stop running again

Thanks Armando,
This is a sign that the main control board has failed.
its easy to replace and I can help you at no additional cost.
Its in the door.
The best place to get a replacement is Espares. They should ship to you on this.

ok Michael thanks for that. One last question, when the board fails is it still common that the machine sometimes work? It still does, now the thing is it is getting less and less frequent.

Hi Armando,
yes it is a symptom of failure for this model.
It can become intermittent as yours has.
I will be here, but please rate kindly at this point and have a great weekend Armando!
