This sounds like it could be the heater element has gone faulty, it is quite difficult to get to test it with it being built in, but basically gain access to the underneath of the appliance and you can test it with a test meter for open circuit, it is also possible that a wire has either come off or broken, the pump pumping out is like a safety mechanism, the eco wash may work because this uses no heat? (some models) the answer i have given you is based on the info you have supplied if i have helped please rate me, thank you, please work safe unplug when working on appliances

Set my dishwasher on the wrong program pressed the start button then change mind it was on the wrong setting switch of changed setting now will not start


Try throw the breaker off for 15 min then back on. That may clear the program. If not restart it on the "wrong" cycle and let it finish out.

Purple light is on and cycle won't start


It's possible that you have put the dishwasher into delay mode. Try powering off at the powerpoint as this will force a reset of all programming.



The pause/start button also sets the Delay Start feature which can delay the start of a wash program
from 1 to 12 hours.


To cancel Delay Start
Press the I button.

Pull the power plug or turn off the circuit breaker for about 30 seconds, plug it back in or turn the breaker on and the diswasher brain should have reset. Good Luck.

Hotpoint BC1450 Light 2 normal flashes


Flashing lights, pump running even when turned off. Had to switch off at the socket. The vibration from the machine had managed to give a quarter turn to the appliance gate valve, the type with the little blue handle. I could see the indentation in the rear rubber panel on the back of the dishwasher. Unscrewed the little blue handle, pushed the machine back in and started working as normal. :)

DIshwasher stopped during wash and won't run or drain.


Sounds like a drain motor startup capacitor, or stuck pump. Try disconnecting power and turn the water pump manually. Some disassembly required. Then after a few good hand spins replug and try again.
