Question about Hotpoint 18 in. DC28 Slim-Line Built-in Dishwasher
Part way through wash cycle there is an intermittent bleeping noise, when you open the door the rinse light is on and the machine has stopped mid cycle. Nothing I do rectifies this problem. Any ideas welcome.
I had the same problem with my machine - ie lots of water coming out front about two thirds of the way through the cycle - engineer (local and very reliable) knew as soon as he came in that I had started bying Powerball 5 dishwasher tablets - they produce too much foam (try opening the door during the cycle and see the amount of foam) and it therefore comes out of the overflow parts on the door. I tried Magnum 5 and got the same problem. Now I stick to either Asda's own basic (not the 5) or I buy the Magnum ones and cut them in half. Has never leaked since!

if the problem faults within the first 1 minute the first check the connections on the main module behind the control panel,as you you look at the control panel there is a pink connection to the left,if this looks like it has got hot then theres yopur problem(you will find that the joint on the board has come loose from the soldered joint,module requires replacing.
if this connection looks ok then the heater is open curcuit and will require replacing.

Lets try the following hope this works
1.- unplug the appliance, isolate it from the electric supply.
2.- Remove the kitchen unit plinth and check inside the inspection panels below the door to see if there is water in the base.
If there is, sponge it out and then try the machine again.

hi, just found this forum after searching the web 4 a solution to my hotpoint DWF50 problem.
I came down this morning to a machine which base tray was full of water and lights 3 ECO & 4 Fast flashing.
Anyway my solution was as i had seen a hotpoint engineer do once before was to press the start/reset button trip the catch, to fool the machine into thinking the door is closed then put in a program, press start, the machine hums slightly but doesnt do anything then after removing the large filter from the tray at the bottom underneath the lower basket insert a length of wire, with a loop on the end (Tip i used a wire coat hanger from the dry cleaners) poke in ythe hole that the dirty water drains from, after a bit of poking about the pump started working and the water drained away. Tip place a hook at the other end of your wire impliment to put your finger in to stop the wire getting caught in the pump mechanisim. After wards u have to hook back the door catch to the normal position, Tip another piece of the coat hanger with a right angled piece at the end will do this. This worked for me, saved me some money esp as D & G insurance ran out 2 weeks ago.....stu

Apparently there is a sensor above the normal water level where it drains. The water level rises above the sensor if the filter is full of gunge and the water cannot drain properly. The sensor is activated and stops the cycle. You have to remove the filter mesh, clean it, drain out the excess water (I did this with a turkey baster!) and replace the filter. Then everything works again!
