Question about Hotpoint 24 in. HDA1000Z Built-in Dishwasher
I have a 15 year old Hotpoint dishwasher. It has been making horrible noises for several months now, but it kept working until tonight. Yesterday my DH broke a glass in the dishwasher and tonight (he apparently) broke a long plastic orange peeling stick in half when loading the dishwasher. Now it won't drain the water after the wash cycle. I think that the other half of the orange peeling stick is stuck somewhere in the pump since we can't find it. Also, there may be a piece of glass stuck in the pump as well, if he didn't get it all last night. Where is the pump, and how do we get to it to find out if it is jammed? Thanks so much!
Trace it back along the outlet pipe and you will find on the pump a unscrewable plug be carefull as you are going to get a few litres of water over the floor

If the washer is not used regularly the shaft can stick to the seals and prevent the motor from spinning. This happens quite regularly for me if I don't use the washer often. You can just take off the bottom panel - after shutting off power to the dishwasher - and access the motor. you should see some fins and then just try to spin the motor by hand. It usually takes about 90 degrees of rotation before the motor breaks free from the seal. You'll have to fight through the spring-like resistance created by the seal-shaft adhesion. After it breaks free the motor spins freely and you should be all set to go. I haven't found a more permanent fix for this other than running the dishwasher more regularly.

Here are the eco related error codes for your washer..
1)Light 3 (eco) flashes. Water is present in the flood catching tray at the bottom which usually indicates that there is a leak somewhere. More often than not this is just a pipe with a poor fitting and simply tightening the clip is enough to stop the leak. Our machine had a very slow leak from one pipe (not enough to trigger the alarm) which was fixed in this way. The leak is detected by a small float switch located in the flood catch tray.
Undo 4 screws on the metal plate under the dishwasher 3 at the front 1 at the back, this reveals The pump check the seals are in place on the waste pump.
2) Wash indicator lights 3 + 5 (eco + pre) flashing rapidly. Filter is clogged. Pull out the filter and clean it.
3)Runs for approx. 3 minutes and then stops. Lights 3 + 4 (eco and fast) flash. Probably caused by being plumbed into a hot rather than cold water supply. The incoming water is hotter than required for the wash which causes the machine to cut out. Plumbing the machine into a cold water supply will fix the problem with no apparent long term problems.

To fix your draining problem you need to check the air gap(if you have one) , check if there is voltage going to your drain pump during the draining cycle. If there is voltage coming to your water pump and the dishwasher is still not draining then the problem could be a clogged drain hose, a clogged air gap or a bad drain pump. if there is no voltage detedcted on the drain pump during the drain cycle, then it could be a water level-switch/solonioed , wiring, or a control board problem.

What you will find is that the plastic nut fixed on the back panel that the top drawer pushes into has lost the rubber inner layer. Replace and your problem is solved
