I have a hotpoint fdl570 dishwasher, not working, machine pumps out sump water, starts to fill, and all the lights start flashing, and water pumps back out. any ideas?

It may be having water level sensing issues, so it drains to avoid an overflow... break out your multi-meter or call a decent technician

I have a Hotpoint BF71 dishwasher. I put it on but it hasn't worked, it filled with water which won't drain not will it even start now. I took out the filter but I couldn't find any blockages Help!

Reset the power at the breaker, but you may need a new pump and motor assembly. The same pump washes and drains on most Hotpoint models- a solenoid is used to open a drain flap and let the water out, but a bad pump will equal no wash or drain...

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.

Dishwater goes from sink to bottom of dishwater

you need to tie up the drain hose under the sink above where it connects to the drain spigot to stop the sink water flowing down into dishwasher instead of the drain. A blockage in the sink drainage can also make the condition worse.

Hi Bob,

Yeah! I'm a Texan! Cool!

I'd almost bet that your dishwasher drain line is NOT clogged but simply installed incorrectly. If I'm right, some water from the sink will drain (siphon) back to your dishwasher making you believe that it's not draining properly. (BTW, I've had a thousand service calls run for just this problem, so I know of what I speak)

Look under your sink and take a gander at your dishwasher drain line... if it looks like this, it ain't right.

This allows sink/disposal water to siphon off to your DW. All you gotta do is loosen the clamp (in the pic), remove the drain line, pull as much slack as you can (without pulling to hard... like it'll break if you do that) and put a loop in it like this...

OK... after you get your loop, you'll need to tighten your hose clamp. As an extra measure of security (to keep the loop in place), secure the drain hose to your sinks water supply line.

There ya go! 15 minutes, no parts, no head-aches and you're done! Cool, huh? All you gotta do now is kick back and wait for the Cowboys pre-season! (BTW... if your drain is installed properly, write back and we'll go a little deeper into a diagnosis, OK?)

My hotpoint won't drain

to check pump is ok, cancel cycle and restart - first action is to pump out.
could be that appliance is in fact sticking in cycle usually due to not heating so check if this is the case

Check your air gap on your kitchen sink. If equipped, you will most likely find it clogged. Pull off the metal cap, then unscrew the white or clear cap. You should find your clog there. Replace both caps and remember to pre-rinse the dishes better before loading.

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
