Question about Hotpoint Dishwashers
Keeps overflowing not draining
If you will open the door on the front of the dishwasher, you should see two small screws going through tabs holding the dishwasher to the countertop. They are in the front, and above the door.
If you will remove those screws, you should be able to pull the dishwasher out about halfway into the room.
Do not pull it farther, because there are 3 important components you want to leave hooked up. The electric wires, the drain hose, and the fill hose.
Remove the front lower panel that hides the bottom of the dishwasher, and you should see a water pump made of plastic maybe the size of your fist, maybe on the right side.
The drain hose should be attached to that pump, as should electric wires. The drain hose goes to the sink drain in most cases
Find a way to catch the water and or sludge that may come out of that hose, and remove the hose from the pump that goes to the sink drain. You may need a pan that holds a quart or more liquid.
See if that hose is clear of being plugged up.
Sometimes too much food left on the dishes can plug up the pump or the hose. Examine the pump to see if it is plugged.
If the hose goes to the garbage disposal, perhaps that is where the plug-up is.

SOURCE: Dishwasher drains into sink
As background, the dirty water typically goes from the dishwasher to a small tube within a tube, and that goes to the disposal. This ensures that your dishwasher does not back up in the event of a clog.
The problem is likely that the tube that links the thing you see next to your faucet to the disposal is either totally or, more likely, partially blocked.
I recommend taking the entire flex pipe off and inspecting. In my case it was about 80% blocked, so a simple test whereby water was pored down failed to show the issue.
Once I took it apart and gave the tube a plumbing version of an angioplasty all was well.

Usually the sink connection is not an overflow, it is the main drain from the dishwasher. It is more likely your s-bend is blocked under the sink- try putting a bucket under it and unscrewing the u-shaped piece and cleaning out (remember don't wash it in that sink while the pipe is off)

SOURCE: my dishwasher wont drain out
Start checking drain hose first.
Check water level switch.
If water level is ok check drain pump lines , and test drain pump.
If everything else is ok, test the control board (uncommon).

Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump.
Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.
