    My dishwasher has error messagr E1 which is not mentioned in the fault finding manual. Do you know what this means?

  • MickPark May 07, 2009

    I too have a E1 error, then the door is closed you hear the drain pump start and then stop, it then waits until a beep and you open the door to find E1 displayed. i think E1 is a timed out function for filling, my guess is the valve which opens to let water is is not working.

    I'm stripping the m/c out to check.

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.

Poor water supply, check the supply hose is not kinked. Check the supply tap is fully on. Check the debris filter in the hose to machine connection is clean.

What does error message E1 mean?

E1 error is "water supply" related. It might be water pressure or pressure switch issue

Is your water supply (in) in the off position? Your in hose is kinked?

Hotpoint built in dishwasher model no BF72 switches on for a couple of minutes then bleeps and showes error E8, can you tell me what the problem is. Many thanks Phil

This seems to be the "anti flood" device at the base of the washer is triggered due to water at the base of the washer. This safety device consists of a polystireene float and a micro switch that detects water leaks/spills and automatically puts the washer in pump out mode. You need to find the leak (hose or clamp)dry the base and rectifythe leak it before the washer works.

The door lock on BF72 integrated dishwasher will not release

the best way is to try and break in, use flat screwdriver push it in the uper area from the handle part (right above) and try to pull the hole mechanisam down, this will cose miner damage to your door but it wont'e be visivle
