Re: My older hot[point dishwasher will not drain why?

Clogged drain or faulty pump would not cause the appliance to leak which it is if understand correctly. if amount of water is considerable, then it is likely a perished pipe or similiar. older hotpoints do not have a base so tilt it and have a look come back to me if you like

My dishwasher suddenly won't wash hot on either the normal auto setting nor the eco one.

Do you find water left in the dishwasher bottom at cycle end???? It sound like your drain line is partially or completely blocked or possibly a bad drain pump depending on model. If it can't drain completely it can't refill with hot water. That will also explain an increase in the cycle time. Some dishwasher add time because it is trying to heat the water up. Its a loosing battle if the water isn't partially hot to begin with.

Dishwasher won't drain at the end of the cycle

Whenever an appliance does operate its pumps/valves heaters correctly for part of a cycle then doesnt at another point, it is a problem with the controller of the sequence in the cycle.. On older devices this can be a rotating knob that slowly runs to end of cycle triggering events as it turns, by tripping blade switches near the rotating item. On these the switch trigger points can be inspected and sometimes repaired. On newer items the cycle is controlled electronically, and you have to replace the whole control unit, which is usually a large expensive part that includes the display and all buttons. Try getting a used control unit from Ebay and swapping it out, or consider replacing the whole appliance.

Dishwasher not working.... when i close the dishwasher and turn it on i can not hear any water running and there is a pool of water at the bottom that will not drain

Hello, How long has your dishwasher been do this? Have you washed dish's in it? Also, these German made dishwasher run on less than 2 1/2 gallons of water. These German manufactured dishwasher machines run really quite. Because of the German water conservancies laws. They limit the amount of water dishwasher and washing machine can use. Also, there is no storage hot water system in there homes, it on demand hot water. You can't hear the motor running and about the only thing one can hear is maybe the water washing the dishes.

Now, the water at the bottom of the dishwasher, if the drain isn't connected up under is the sink drain and trap area or the garbage disposable in the sink. but some place lower on the drain pipe. You will not have a spiffing effect on the the bottom of the dishwasher, it the same with washing machines. One the discharge pump starts sucking air, it will not drain the dishwasher. The siffen effect works if the water is below the outlet for the drain. Example: Home owner have the new washing running and continue fill with water. Why, because the drain pipe end is below the the bottom of the washing machine tub. It fill up with water and siffen action continues emptying the tube will it still filling. One heck of a water bill.

Water didn't drain, left in bottom of washer tub

I had similar problem and it ended up being a clog at the point where the drain hose meets the garbage disposal. I had to unhook the hose and clean out the food that had accumulated (horrible smell). You may have to stick a screwdriver into the garbage disposal hole where the hose fits and clean the food out there also. Then put the hose into a bucket and run a few cycles to ensure the hose is free.

Water won't drain from my hot point dishwasher

Your drain/waste line under the sink is clogged with grease and soap scum.
Remove the P-trap and connecting drain lines, route out the drain and lines.
If you have a air gap mounted on the sink, clean that too.

Fisher & Paykel Dishwasher leaked

From what you describe, drain water from the top drawer is getting into the bottom drawer or waste water from the disposer is backing up into the bottom drawer.

1. Each drawer has its own drain hose. Each hose should terminate at the drain point with a 'Y' adapter.
2. Inspect the drain point (under the sink where the drain pipes are) to make sure this 'Y' adapter is present. (you should see two drain hoses from the DW). If not present, then the DW drain lines are not installed properly. (Someone took a shortcut and installed the 'Y' adapter behind the DW)
3. If terminated properly, make sure the drain hoses extend upward as they leave the drain point.

It is important the drain lines are connected properly to ensure proper drainage from the DW. Consult the installation manual for complete details.
