If the machine switched to demo by itself, you may have a software issue and will need a new board. Try calling Hotpoint as they will be aware of the problem. Some boards can be re-programmed, but I guess they will just replace it. Electrolux had exactly the same issue a while ago.
If YOU accidentally turned on demo,


Power Off at the mains.
Now press and hold the On/Off button together with the Start/Cancel button.
While pressing, power up the appliance at the mains.
Keep the buttons pressed down until 'D off' appears in the display.

Are the spray arms turning? check for blocked jets at the very end of the spray arms, blocked with food deposits or paper from lids, or fruit pips etc.
Or may be vanes on wash pump rotor have stripped off because a piece of broken glass or pot has found its way into the pump chamber - that might account for the funny noise. If the vanes have stripped off, the motor may well turn but too fast, and not pump. sometimes you can remove the internal filters and covers to examine the pump rotor - otherwise remove the pump assembly completely and check. Not a job for the faint hearted on this model lol isolate supply and remove plug first.

They are often part of the element, so check for resistance in the element and this should tell you if gone or not. It might be worth checking if parts are still available for your model, as you say It is an older model

Possibly not getting sufficient amount of water. Faulty water valve would cause that

Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

you gotta send the full model number,open the door and look at the very front of dw where the door closes into the machine,usually the tag is on the left side at 9 oclock,first are you positive that's where it's leaking remove the bottom kick panel and see if the motor or anything isn't leaking there too.if it is the door gasket it's an easy fix

Clean it by running a cycle with hot water and 2 cups white vinegar, I suspect you have mineral deposits built up and causing it to stick closed and this causes the problem

There should be an upper spray arm to wash the upper rack, it may be stuck. Look at its position, run the machine a few seconds and see if it moved. The spray nozzles on the arm often get clogged with food particles. the pipe feeding the spray arm has to extend when you pull the rack out and retracts when you push it in. Make sure it works properly and has not disconnected.
