Good morning
I refer to my Whirlpool dishwasher that has stopped in the middle of a cycle and "F3" is flashing on the programme screen. How would I fix this?
Many thanks.

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! That error means that there is an issue in the heating circuit. The element may be faulty, a wiring issue, etc. Do you have a meter to test with?

Hi Kelly, I don't have a test meter, I have been told that the u board has to be replaced at a considerable expense by a technician here in South Africa?
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

It could be the board, but also may be a heater, thermostat or wiring/connection issue.

What would you advise as I really do not want to have to spend R2 500-00 on a new board? Could you recommend a Whirlpool technician here?
