Question about Hotpoint 23 in. BFI62 Built-in Dishwasher

Power is on but machine will not run

Power is getting to the machine and I can select programs but the door doesn't seem to lock when I close it. Had to slam it shut sometimes to get it to run but now it will not run at all. Is there any adjustment possible? There is a metal loop that seems to engage a plastic switch inside the door but the metal loop looks like it cannot be adjusted in any way. Any ideas? Thanks.

Thanks diyme for the feedback. I checked and the switch was in the correct position but it turns out that was where the problem lay. The rocked part was turning but there is a spring and microswitch and that wasn't moving. Hence the machine would not come on. Had to get a new switch mechanism for it.

Had a similar problem recently. The plastic switch you are mentioning has got stuck in the latched position. I had to open up the front door of the dishwasher to access this switch and disengage it. I don't think you can disengage it in another way.

Hi there, without some details of the make and model of your machine I can't tell you what buttons to press to perform a reset of the machine, however, this is a common problem, often associated with a momentary power failure when the controller doesn't get time to reset and return to an idle state before the machine gets power back and it gets "confused". Regardless of the cause, you will almost certainly find that unplugging from the mains (Not just powering off on the button, as some door locks have a sneak circuit, even when the power is turned off at the button) and leaving the machine undisturbed for a full 20 minutes will allow a reset, the door lock will disengage and all will be well when you power back up. Additionally, on older machines with analog program selectors, turn the selector to an end of program setting before you power it off.

Check power is at these Points.

  1. Mains filter at top right - Check for live and Neutral Presence.
  2. ON/OFF Switch - Check for Power in and Out when switched on.
  3. Door Lock - Check for Power down 1 wire and when Locked, Power ( Live ) present in 2 wires. The third wire is the Neutral for the door locking circuit. Check this Neutral is OK. - Let me know.
