Question about Dishwashers
SOURCE: 30 hotpoint dishwasher
#1. If you have to put downward pressure on the float in order to fill, then float switch is not OK.
#2. It would seem as though your pump impeller is missing some, or all vanes. (Not pumping water out).
#3. It will become even more difficult to find parts as time goes on.
#4. 30 years...It has done it's job. It has paid for the trip, It's time to move on, What else can I say.

to check pump is ok, cancel cycle and restart - first action is to pump out.
could be that appliance is in fact sticking in cycle usually due to not heating so check if this is the case

two things could be the problem. 1 the solenoid that activates the drain is bad and needs replacement or 2 the pump motor has jammed. To unjamm the motor you need to take the lower panel off the unit and usinmg a flashlight look inside at the back of the motor. Turn your unit on and if possible advance the timer to the drain cycle. Once you get to the drain cycle the solenoid should activate you will hear it click. If you dont hear it activate then the solenoid is gone. If you do hear it activate then look at the back of the motor to see if it is turning. If it isn't turning then unplug the unit take a small flat head screwdriver and using the screwdriver move the fins on the motor shaft they should spin without too much effort. Once you have done this replug the unit and check to see if it now drains. If not then the drain motor has gone out and will need replacement
Hope this helped
