My hotpoint LSB 5B019B dishwasher is making random beeping noise during the wash cycle. A lot of stuff I've read on line suggests a reset. Does anybody have any idea how I do this?

I have encountered this problem a few times with this particular range of dishwashers and there are a few possible causes.

1.Low water pressure will cause the diswasher to beep during the wash. Check for kinked pipes or blocked inlet valve.

2.The waste hose being pushed too far down the standpipe or the standpipe itself being to low down causing the water to siophin out of the dishwasher. Check your instruction book for correct installation

3. Using poor quality dishwasher tablets can cause over sudding which has the effect of dropping out the pressure switch making the dishwasher think the water level is low

4. An intermitted faulty element can cause this

5. A faulty display board

The first 3 you can check yourself but the bottom two i strongly recommend getting a hotpoint engineer to carry out the repair.

Ensure that your filters are not blocked - these are inside the unit. remove the grey plastic filter and see if there any food or other items jammed in it.

Make sure there is nothing underneath the filter - if there is items of food (e.g seeds) may already be restricting the exit pump path.

You just need to switch the machine off for approx 30 seconds from the mains and switch it back on again!!

AL99 means that there is a communication error within the machines software.
