Hotpoint bf162 built-in dishwasher error codes

When I start my dishwasher on a wash, just after it starts it fails and two error lights flash they are the dailywash light ( second from the left) and the eco wash light ( fourth from left). This combination isn't in the user manual so if anyone can help I would be grateful. Me too, never completes a cycle and stops in various stages, before and after the tablet has been dispensed, within minutes and then other times when itseems to have gone for ages.

It smells too, when it's hot, of cigarettes! I have quite a sensitive nose, but it does, it's awful. Today it seemed to go white too, in the door, whereyou would imagine the powder to dissolve down it, but a finger wipe removed nothing!!!

It's been a bad pup this dishwasher!! Has hotpoint out loads of times under warranty but now no longer is.

To reset the dishwasher push in this order the,

HIGH TEMP WASH- HEATED DRY- HIGH TEMP WASH- HEATED DRY - CANCEL/OFF

the control will be reset...but more importantly how many times ina row does the light flash..it will indicate what error code its displaying??

7 flashes then pause then 7 flashes its displaying the error code#7 ect ect

My BF162 runs with the door open. I also cannot


Yup, could be that pesky door latch, or even the control panel board. This could be a case for a repair man or replacement, depending on the cost.

The program light goes off and the BF162 doesn't start...


When you keep the button pressed for a few seconds the lights go off, this resets the dishwasher. Then press the p button again to the program you want 1st light is heavy soil 2nd light is normal soil, 3rd light is eco wash, 4th light is rinse. At the end of the cycle the program light you have selected will flash.

2+4 - Heating circuit not working. Possible causes - Heating element, connections, timer relay.
Maybe too late a response.

BF162 DISHWASHER HOTPOINT


I think if you push the heated wash and heated dry button several times until all the buttoms light up this will fix your problem.

 A clean light that flashed repeatedly 7 times then off. Reset as above with the heated wash and heated dry buttons. You may then noticed a reduced flow from the pump so dissasemble the lower arm and water inlet assy.You may find it mostly plugged with foregin matter and some othe junk. Upon removal of that stuff and reassembly,It may work as new!

BF162 Hotpoint intergrated dishwasher


consult manual under troubleshooting.
if no manual, or if it does not address this, consult service center.

one likely cause you can try first is to disconnect it from power via the cord or a breaker. after a brief period, it may reset itself.
otherwise you likely have a logic board issue.

logic boards seem to be very vulnerable in dishwasher environments. the type of issue you have is very common among most brands. don't feel alone.

good luck
