 If the rack is not overly rusted, a bottle of rack touch up is available and can be purchased at most appliance parts depots. Also new tine ends are also available to cover the rusting tips. The tine covers just push onto the tine tips...very easy repair!!

    Q - I just installed my food waste disposal, now my dishwasher will not drain, what could be wrong??
    A - New disposals have a "plug" in the connection stub for the dishwasher drain hose. This plug MUST be removed or the dishwasher will not be able to drain into the disposal.

    - My dishwasher is full of soap suds....help!!
    A - You may have used detergent not designed for automatic dishwashers. You may be using too much detergent/tablets. Or you may be using liquid detergent. Some rinse agents and mechanically softened water will also makes suds. Putting 2 tablespoons of oil into the sudsy water at the bottom of the dishwasher will help break up the suds. Sprinkle ordinary table salt liberally across the suds to disperse them. Add a large quantity of ice cubes from your freezer to the tub. This causes the water temp to lower, thus degrading some more of the suds. Try to drain the unit as much as possible, soaking up any residual water or suds with a dry towel. Let the unit fill again, and repeat the salt and ice if necessary.
    I also use a commercial spa or water bed de-foamer, which is found at Home Depot or any pool supply store. This works as a surfactant to break down the bubbles almost instantly. (Only squirt a few drops in and run the unit)

    Q - The dishwasher is empty when the cycle is over, but the next morning there is water inside the dishwasher, what could be wrong ??
    A - Two things to consider....clean water or dirty water?
    Clean water usually indicates the fill valve is not shutting off all the way and the fill valve is "weeping" water in all the time = new fill valve time!!
    Dirty water usually is not a dishwasher problem but more of a plumbing issue. Often the sink drain that carries the sinks water outside is not fast enough and some of this sink water is backing up into the drain hose and filling up the dishwasher through the drain hose. The drain from the sink to outside needs attention as this type of a problem indicates a slow house drain for that sink.
    The dishwasher drain line should be clamped to the top underneath part of the counter before entering the sink drain plumbing, this may help the water from coming back inside the dishwasher.

Do you hear the motor run or is there deadly silence when you select drain.
Does the wash cycle start - do you hear water getting in and washer arms move?
Are there any lights flashing?

Where is the element on a Hotpoint Aquarius dwf30 dishwasher?


It sits in the base of the machine and you would need to remove the complete top section of the dishwasher to gain access to it, which involves removing the door first, then the balance weight and finaly the stainless steel top section

You can attempt to reset the water level, but it sounds like that system is malfunctioning and going to require service.

Hotpoint Aquarius 1100 WM63. fills with water...I dont think it is heating water...rarely rotates and spins (saw it once in early stage of J prog only) seems to fill and empty but no rotate or spin....


if it fill with water then stops it is the ellement the machine first fills turns the drum then heats up the thermostat cuts in and the it emptys rinses and spins so if it does not get to temp it will stop or continue to wash forever

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

Hotpoint Aquarius WD440: IT seem when it supposed to pump the dirty water out,the waters are not coming,but if i take the pump and put down on the floor ,the water are coming out and it run the whole spin...


If you are getting voltagae to the pump and the water is not pumping out then you have a bad pump, just replace it and you have the problem solved, If you do not have voltage then we would have to find out why.
