The pump is actually a self cleaning pump, but there is a filter located behind the bottom kick strip at the front bottom of the washer.
To access it you should see 2 screws in the panel, unscrew these and remove the panel, then you will see the filter,unscew it anti clockwise and remove the filter, clean as neccessary, see if you can see anything in the filter chamber. and refit it. This should solve your problem.
Plz leave feedback.

Hotpoint dishwasher 4th & 6th lights flashing


You will need to provide the model number of the dishwasher. However, the likely causes of the lights flashing are many, including water inlet failure, blocked drain filter, leaking seals causing flood switch to trip. You may want to go to the Hotpoint site and find the manual for your model.

check pump/filter/outlet hose for blockages. if ok, check pressure switch (disc shaped item at top of machine with 4? wires and a tube) by blowing into it gently - should hear clicks, then blow into tube to pressure chamber - should be clear.

Error code F05 indicates that the water level switch is stuck in the closed position, this is probablly due to a blocked filter or pump.
To gain access to the pump and filter, remove the lower rear panel of washer, locate and remove large black hose fastened to the bottom of tub.
Remove filter inside hose and clean, check inside pump for any blockage or restriction, and make sure the plastic chamber is clean where the small plastic hose is fastened to, as this goes up to the water level switch, and can sometimes get blocked.

Refit filter and hose, making sure it is securely on and fastened, and test, if fault still persists, then you will probably neeed to fit a new water level switch, or preesure switch as it is usually called.
Please rate my solution to your problem.
Thankyou.

Water wont drain from Machine or go onto spin cycle


either the level control switch has become blocked or faulty or the drain pump has become stuck.

disconnect from the mains and gain access to the rear look for a circular unit with two or three electrical connections and a plastic tube. this is the level control.follow the tube to its start and you will find a plastic connection that goes into the wash drum, remove the plastic tube from the switch end and blow into it. if there is no restistance then the system is OK at the drum end. next reconnect the tube to the switch and remove the opposite end, very gently blow down the tube and you should hear the switch operate. Test wether the switch is working by putting a meter across the switch and blow into the tube. if all of this is OK then the drain pump is at fault. locate the drain pump. it is connected to the outlet tube, try turning by hand. if it does not rotate smoothly remove the clips holding the pump body together and clear the obstruction.

Hotpoint sdw dishwasher


It is possible drain pump blocked, you need to empty d/washer manually, check inside drain pump which is at end of drain hose, always isolate d/washer from power before attempting any work on it.

Dishwasher error codes please help


I too had this problen today. Printed off a manual from the Hotpoint website. Very helpful troubleshoot section. Anyway, flashing eco and fast lights and beeping sound indicates 'water feed pipe blocked' You need to check the water inlet connections on your tap.However, when we pulled it out we noticed the blue water inlet pipe was slightly kinked. Straightened this out and hey presto! It works fine again. How this happens when its worked ok for 18 months will never know but still. Try it! hope this was helpful...shewoo
