My Hotpoint BF1620 not getting rid of water

It starts ok fills and washes the dishes on the 1st part. It made a loud girring sound then stopped. I noticed the dishes quite warm and half washed but with water still at the bottom of the machine. I cleaned out the water as it would not start again. When I did this it did the same again. Do you think it is the drain pump at fault??? Is this something I could fix myself ?? I've never had the back off it or anything so no idea how big a job that would be. A glass had broken in the machine about a week ago so I don't know if that has anything to do with it. I don't mind having a go as hubby is useless at that sort of thing where as I don't mind trying (just fixed my bissell carpet cleaner). Apart from that I tried to ring 10 appliance repair centres and not one of them answered the phone. Thanks Ferretface from the UK

Re: My Hotpoint BF1620 not getting rid of water

I would assume the culprit is the glass in the pump housing. Taking out the pump is a teadious and time consuming task but can be done. Varies from model to model. Usually when hard debris gets into these pumps, unless there metal, it demolishes the plastic impeller blades and the pump must be replaced. If you wish t tackle this let me know ^_^ ill find you a new pump n the net fr the cheapest price if needed. Try taking the punp out first and cleaning it out as much as possible and let me know !

Dish water is not working. Water fills but no noice after that.

it's obviously sounds like your pump has gone, but considering the age of the machine, it would probably be best to get a new machine, that way you would have a 5 year warranty with it aswell so it's win/win really!

Water fill problem on Hotpoint Dish Washer Deluxe Model DF 31

Pl check the small filter fitted near the water inlet hose. Probably you may have to pull this filter as this is housed in the threaded pipe attached to the body.

Remove the hose from the machine and try flushing. see whether you get sufficinet pressure from over-head tank!

Clean the filter with tooth brush or reverse clean. Do no for get to fit rubber washer.

What you will find is that the plastic nut fixed on the back panel that the top drawer pushes into has lost the rubber inner layer. Replace and your problem is solved
