Question about Hotpoint 23 in. BFI62 Built-in Dishwasher
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.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello Stephanie Shcherban - Try resetting the unit by unplugging it for flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes. Restart unit and first confirm that the "child lock" option is not selected. However, if it proves to be ineffective and from what you have a described it sounds like the unit has a defective door lock switch, which will need replacing. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.
