Question about Hotpoint 24 in. DWF34 Built-in Dishwasher

Hotpoint dwf34 dishwasher

Hi, I have a problem with a dishwasher that has been sat in the garage for 5 months and I have plumbed it in today. When I switch it on, water comes in the bottom but does not heat up, it immediately starts to pump water out (cold) in little spurts, a second or so at a time and it continues to do this. The time remaining on the wash cycle does not decrease and it just stays in this loop. I have checked the impeller and that is not blocked. I would appreciate any help you can give me.

Thanks.

First I'm no expert. Second I have a DWF34. Try taking the left hand side cover off by removing the top (held on with 2 clips at the back) and then undoing the 2 torx screws visible on the left hand side when you open the door. On my appliance there is a red plastic bar attached vertically, located near the bottom just to the right hand side of centre which attaches the flood float to a micro switch. Check that the red bar moves freely and that the micro switch clicks on and off. If you have an electrical tester check that the micro switch works.
Beware close contact to electricity can often be detrimental to health ... unplug the appliance before you touch anything.

Here are the eco related error codes for your washer..
1)Light 3 (eco) flashes. Water is present in the flood catching tray at the bottom which usually indicates that there is a leak somewhere. More often than not this is just a pipe with a poor fitting and simply tightening the clip is enough to stop the leak. Our machine had a very slow leak from one pipe (not enough to trigger the alarm) which was fixed in this way. The leak is detected by a small float switch located in the flood catch tray.

Undo 4 screws on the metal plate under the dishwasher 3 at the front 1 at the back, this reveals The pump check the seals are in place on the waste pump.

2) Wash indicator lights 3 + 5 (eco + pre) flashing rapidly. Filter is clogged. Pull out the filter and clean it.
3)Runs for approx. 3 minutes and then stops. Lights 3 + 4 (eco and fast) flash. Probably caused by being plumbed into a hot rather than cold water supply. The incoming water is hotter than required for the wash which causes the machine to cut out. Plumbing the machine into a cold water supply will fix the problem with no apparent long term problems.

Hotpoint aquarius dwf30 dishwasher


you can plumb into hot but there are some snags
first hot water pressure is often a lot lower than cold so the machine may take a long time to fill
second if the water is too hot it will destroy the resin of the water softener and you will see brown marks on the crockery.
third it a bit uneconomical as you will use a lot of hot water
