Question about Hotpoint 24 in. DWF32P Free-standing Dishwasher
Hi, Hotpoint DF31 leaks in fresh water when idle,after every wash I shut water inlet off which seems to cure the problem, could you please help,also best contact for parts, many thanks
You need a new inlet valve. Axcessed through bottom panels below door there are screws in the four corners of the upper one. Inlet valve is where the water line meets a plastic body with wires going to it. www3.sears.com for parts.

Tips for a great answer:
When the Dishwasher won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the float switch assembly. When the water fills your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the float switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.
