Hotpoint BCI 450 error message not in the manual

Hi, dishwasher (BCI 450) was running on a 'Rapid & Dry' cycle but stopped. On checking, there are two steady lights on 'Normal' and 'Eco' to indicate a fault but this isn't in the manual for the BCI 450. The water hasn't drained out. I've checked and the pump looks ok and not blocked..?

I had this on my machine.This indicate the drain pump is broken. Probably due to a leak from the heating element pipe joint above it. You can easily replace the drain pump yourself. Costs around £30. I got mine from Curry's partmaster in the UK.

How to reset Kenmore Elite 665-16572202 Dishwasher...clean light blinks 7 times pauses then repeats. My model does not have a Heated Dry button it has an Air Dry button.


Here's the key sequence(s) to use, depending on how your keys are labeled:
Heated Dry - Normal - Heated Dry - Normal; or
High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry; or
Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry; or
High Temp Wash, Heated Dry, High Temp Wash, Heated Dry.

This will start the diagnostic cycle. Let the dishwasher run for a few minutes, and then press Cancel to stop the dioagnostic cycle and clear the error. Please note, that this clears the error, but if you haven't found the cause (water-not-heating error), the condition will come right back the next time you run the dishwasher.

It sounds like you just need to reset the controller. This is done by running (or partially running) a diagnostic cycle, which will clear the error. Here's how to do it: Depending on the model, and the keys you have, press the following sequence of keys quickly (with less that 1 second between key presses:
Heated Dry - Normal - Heated Dry - Normal; or
High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry; or
Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry; or
High Temp Wash, Heated Dry, High Temp Wash, Heated Dry.
You will know that you have entered the diagnostic cycle when all the lights light up. Let it run for a few minutes, and then press Cancel to stop the diagnostic cycle and clear the error.

Note: On some of the newer Whirlpool, Kenmore, KitchenAid dishwashers, you start the diagnostic cycle by rapidly pressing the 3 left-most keys in the following sequence: 1 2 3, 1 2 3, 1 2 3.

Green light flashes on clean. Will not run wash cycles. Will drain, Is there a reset button somewhere?


To reset your dishwasher, press the buttons [heated dry] [normal] [heated dry] [normal] to initiate the diagnostic cycle. This should clear the error message from the system and allow it to run again. If the problem persists, check the causes found here : http://bit.ly/gitWix

Error caused by a leak which fills the plastic base tray and operates pressure switch to stop machine working, easy to check by removing metal panel under door (2 screws) and feeling for water. Make sure its switched off first. If pool of water found like i found dry out remove side panels and run on a short cycle to locate leak. Mine was from a joint with a oring on the RH side of the m/c which was a odd size decided to silicone joint which worked.

POWER ON-PROGRAM WONT WORK


1. No power to the dishwasherMake sure there's power getting to the dishwasher. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the dishwasher (inside the junction box, behind the bottom kick panel), if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

2. Door switch
Replace if defective.

3. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

4. Selector switch
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).
