Re: Dishwasher just draines and nothing else??

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

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.

Electrolux dishwasher delays before starting

  1. To cancel the the delay pad again when the delay is counting down. The indicator light will go out and the cycle will start or resume immediately.
  2. To cancel the delay and the cycle, press Start/cancel once to drain and turn-off the dishwasher.
  3. Press Start/cancel twice to turn-off the dishwasher without draining.

I have a Frigidaire built in dishwasher that won't start. There is a light on by the 3 second lock button

Your dishwasher is in the lock mode. If you press the button on the dishwasher that has the lock for maybe 5 seconds , the light will go off. Then put the dishwasher in a wash cycle (normal) and your dishwasher should start up working. Make sure the door is all the way closed. Hear the click of the door when it shuts. After about 90 seconds it should have water in it, press the start/cancel button 2 times and the water drains out.

I have a hotpoint bc1450 no water coming into machine

Did the problem start directly after the washine machine was fixed ? I wonder if when the washing machine was moved back, the hose to the dishwasher has become trapped and kinked behind the washing machine. Or maybe the supply to the dishwasher is separate to the washing machine and has been turned off by mistake.

Dishwasher doesn't want to fill

Hello Dianne...I'll take a shot here.. chances are that the door interlock ( switch ) is disabling the dishwasher from starting.. it may be damaged or disconnected.. and as long as you are sure you have a water supply to the dishwasher,.. that's where I would start...If that switch is NOT made.. the dishwasher will not start... Hope that helps
