Hotpoint Dishwasher Problem

Our Hotpoint Dishwasher is an older model, HDA465-01. It takes water in when you turn it on, but does not engage the washer motor. It just hums. I've heard some possibilities are drive belt, jammed motor, bad motor. Anything else it could be? Most importantly, is it worth it to fix it if it needs parts, or should I get a new one? Thanks.

Certainly sounds like the motor is seized. If it is quite old it may not be worth fixing, you should call your local appliance parts dealer with the dishwasher model and serial number and get a quote for a new motor.

I have a Hotpoint BF71 dishwasher. I put it on but it hasn't worked, it filled with water which won't drain not will it even start now. I took out the filter but I couldn't find any blockages Help!


Reset the power at the breaker, but you may need a new pump and motor assembly. The same pump washes and drains on most Hotpoint models- a solenoid is used to open a drain flap and let the water out, but a bad pump will equal no wash or drain...

Hotpoint Built-In Dishwasher HDA3600DWWmy dish


there is an electronic solenoid near where the drainhose connects to the sump that changes the waterflow direction from recirculate(washing), to evacuate (draining). this is electronically controlled by the timer. you can test the power leads at the solenoid for voltage when it sould be draining. if none then the timer is faulty. if there is voltage then the solenoid is faulty. if the solenoid is engageing, then the water diverter is faulty. if the water diverter is broken, replace the dishwasher.
overflowing is another problem of its own. the water level float/ sensor is not working and could be caked with detergent. work the float from the inside of the dishwasher, it should move freely. if so, then there is a switch connected to the float on the underside. test it with an ohmmeter. if bad replace it. if it is an electronically timed water level control then it could be a problem with the timer as well, but with hotpoint they are usually manual.

Hotpoint dishwasher 4th & 6th lights flashing


You will need to provide the model number of the dishwasher. However, the likely causes of the lights flashing are many, including water inlet failure, blocked drain filter, leaking seals causing flood switch to trip. You may want to go to the Hotpoint site and find the manual for your model.

Installed an older model dishwasher for a friend power works oes throuth the cycles but its not pumping water into the uniT there is no clogs and i hear the pump turn on. unsure why its not getting water...


You will need to disassemble the bottom part where the bottom rotary spray nozzle is(the part that shoots water upwards). The impeller might have come loose or it is clogged in that area.

My hotpoint LFT114 switches on, has all four wash cycles, has water but will not work even when the door is fully engaged. What could the problem be


G.E. motors (G.E. and Hotpoint) have an issue with the impeller seizing. Turn the electricity to the appliance off. Remove the lower front panel(s) to gain access to the motor and its impeller. Take a flat head screw driver and carefully insert it within the motor impeller area and try to turn the impeller clockwise. If stuck or hard to turn, keep trying until it loosens (turns freely). If it turns freely, activate the dishwasher and see if it works for you. If the motor impeller does not turn, contact an appliance service company.

Hotpoint is not taking water inlet


If your thinking air in the water supply line, air won't be the cause. I would look to make sure there is not mineral buildup inside the valve, and that the valve is good.

Turn the water off, disconnect the line at the water valve, then carefully tirn the water abck on to make sure there is good flow from the water supply line. If there is, then look toward the dishwasher side. If not, look toward the water supply side.

Hotpoint dishwasher full of water after cycle complete


If the motor is running, the diverter solenoid valve is probably not functioning. It is attached to the pump. With the power off, take the solenoid apart and remove whatever is jamming it. Toothpicks are a favorite as are any large food particle. It may also be bad. Not the problem...you may have a defective timer or your outlet hose is clogged or kinked.

My older hot[point dishwasher will not drain why?


clogged drain or faulty pump would not cause the appliance to leak which it is if understand correctly. if amount of water is considerable, then it is likely a perished pipe or similiar. older hotpoints do not have a base so tilt it and have a look come back to me if you like

NO WATER


if an older machine, suspect the wiring loom where it turns at the bottom of the door. take outer door panel off and carefully examine the loom and pull each wire to make sure it is intact
