Hotpoint Built-In Dishwasher HDA3600DWWmy dish

there is an electronic solenoid near where the drainhose connects to the sump that changes the waterflow direction from recirculate(washing), to evacuate (draining). this is electronically controlled by the timer. you can test the power leads at the solenoid for voltage when it sould be draining. if none then the timer is faulty. if there is voltage then the solenoid is faulty. if the solenoid is engageing, then the water diverter is faulty. if the water diverter is broken, replace the dishwasher.
overflowing is another problem of its own. the water level float/ sensor is not working and could be caked with detergent. work the float from the inside of the dishwasher, it should move freely. if so, then there is a switch connected to the float on the underside. test it with an ohmmeter. if bad replace it. if it is an electronically timed water level control then it could be a problem with the timer as well, but with hotpoint they are usually manual.

Dishwasher wont drain

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.

Hi i have an hotpoint ultima its 2years old, it was working fine untill the council fitted new kitchens. then it started not draining right then when it was draining water was comming up the sink now no...

Sounds to me like therte is a problem with the draining of the washer due to the way it
is connected to your sink waste.
Get that sorted, and you will probably find that the other problem will disappear.

Pegasus Push Button Vessel Sink Drain with overflow

Put plumbers putty around the flange that will be in contact with the sink. When you put it into the hole, try to line up the overflow as good as possible. The nut that goes onto the bottom (tailpiece) has a rubber gasket that will go between the nut & the sink. Adding some plumbers putty here won't hurt. After all is secure, just remove the putty that squeezed out from tightening.

I have an Hotpoint Aquarius washer dryer WD61.I moved my machine from one house to another in the car but led it on its side.After it was re-installed the washer worked fine until it come to pump the water...

take bottom panel off at back. there is a large diameter hose going from the bottom of the tub to the pump. disconnect this hose at the tub end and you will find the filter inside (carefull, water may come out)
also, put onto drain program and check the pump is actually turning
if drain is connected to a spigot on the sink trap, this spigot may be blanked off if iot has never been used

Hotpoint ultima 1200

Kirsty - There could be an item like a hair clip Jamming the pump impeller. Or then it can be only a blockage in the filter or in the waste pipe or if the waste is connected to your sink drain check that the blockage is not there - either in the end of the pipe or in the sink connection.

Try disconnecting at the sink, holding the waste pipe into a bucket see if it will pump out then. If it does then the problem lies in the sink plumbing - if not then it lies in the machine.

If the pump and filter and hoses are definitely clear you could have a Pump, PCB or wiring fault. Hope this helps.

you are probably plumbed in under the sink for the drain hose. a common problem is water coming back down the drain hose when you empty the sink. if so take the drain hose up as far as possible in a swan neck. other possibility is a leaking fill valve
