Hi, the reset switch is located on the inside of the dishwasher. its on the actual motor. here's a tip to keep the motor operational during low usage cycles.


If you do not use your dishwasher often, set it to fill and pump out once every week.
This will help keep the seal moist, and the garbage disposer clear. it will also keep the motor form deactivating itself.

    Heres a quick way to reset the control panel. this may power up the motor without disassembling. press and hold the on/off button for 2 mins.

    if that panel reset didn't work, you will have to manually reset by disassembling and pressing the on board button on the motor.

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...

Hotpoint LFT 228 A dishwasher not making any sound


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/PUMP MOTOR/DRAIN to work when it is commanded .If this does not happen then the voltage at these points must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage/drive from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

Check how to remove the control panel: http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/dishwashers/a/3/1287/how-to-replace-a-hotpoint-dishwasher-fascia-p.html

If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor. The water pressure must be good and the spraying must be seen to be good. If there is low pumping or pressure then the spray arms will not turn around to inject with pressure. If so the pump must be checked for clogging.

To replace check this link:

http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/dishwashers/a/3/1293/how-to-replace-the-spraying-system-on-a-dishw.html

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water.

Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

. The dishwasher fills with water but will not


Same problem here. It's been a while since we used it. HDA 3440GO2SA. I think I've narrowed it down to the motor seizing. I get 12.2 ohms on the windings and a local tech says the windings are good then. Some decent troubleshooting videos here http://www.appliancehelponline.com/dishwashernotrunning.html. Turn the breaker off for the unit (so you have no power), remove the bottom panel and kick plate. take a screw driver and try to turn the motor fan blades. If it turns really hard keep turning it until it loosens up. If it turns freely, pull the plug, test the power coming in with your multimeter (requires turning breaker back on, of course, but after the leads are inserted in the plug). You should have around 120 volts with the door switch activated and wash cycle on. Anyhooo...I plan on trying to pull the hub and clean it up, put some di-electric grease on it and re-assemble. If that doesn't work then I'll debate whether to spend 150+ on a new motor or just get a new dishwasher...lol.

I'm trying to find out info on Hotpoint dishwasher catalog # 40mc20


That number is not a factory Hotpoint model number, you need to get the Hotpoint model number, which starts with #HDA*******(example#HDA1100NWH) then go to www.hotpoint.com and you will find info on the dishwashers.
GOOD LUCK !

My dishwasher starts fills water and never starts wash cycle?


If you hear a hum when it should be washing, the motor has seized. Replace motor. If it fills with water and stops quite, run it through a test using the tech sheet under the bottom panel to access. These dishwasher have had issues with the motor.

Hotpoint dishwasher full of water after cycle complete


If the motor is running, the diverter solenoid valve is probably not functioning. It is attached to the pump. With the power off, take the solenoid apart and remove whatever is jamming it. Toothpicks are a favorite as are any large food particle. It may also be bad. Not the problem...you may have a defective timer or your outlet hose is clogged or kinked.

FDW60 dishwasher


I've just (as of 10 minutes ago) had the same problem. I followed the advice given elsewhere in this forum and removed the bottom cover - water running out so needed a big towel to mop it up. I stood the machine upright and restarted it - no problem! it started straight away.
The question now is where is the water coming from? It seems there is obviously a leak somewhere and water is gathering in the undertray setting off the microswitch.
