Question about Hotpoint 24 in. HDA2130Z Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Not draining and washer arm not spinning

My Hotpoint HDA2130z dishwasher starting having a intermintent problem and now has it constantly. I will shut door, lock it and turn dial to start wash. Where normally I would here it click on and start running water, now nothing happens. I hear a humming, but the rotating arm does not spin. When I tricked it to run with door open, I could see the arm bearly **** when I turned the dial and I heard it click for the arm to normally spin. Also will not drain the water that does come into the washer. The washer will hum and run through the entire cycle and the dial turns and water goes into washer tub, but like I said the washer arm does don't spin and the water does not drain. Don't know what's wrong with it. Please help.

Have you cleaned the drain filter? The symptoms you describe indicate that the filter are totally clogged.

Cleaning filters should be done every other week to maintain good function in dishwashers, it is not uncommon people forget that.

You access the filter by removing the perforated stainless steel plate at the floor of the washer tub, usually there is a round plastic knob in the middle that you turn counter-clockwise then lift it up. Underneath this plate you will find the main filter, take it out and clean with a soft brush under running water.

Good luck!

Slow or no drain of water. cleaned out sump covers and ran drain cleaner thru cycle. looking for possible secondary filter.


Hi, if the water doesn't drain from your dishwasher, check the drain line and pump..

A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.

Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support.
Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up the pump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replace them.

Hope it helps...

Is it a dishwasher a washing machine or a drier? Washing machines don't have rotating arms and you said "I've managed to get the drier to drain"

I will assume it is a dishwasher in which case it sounds like your pump has failed.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

Have a Hotpoint Aquarius FDF780 dish washer. I have checked everything that I can but still there is no water being passed through the two revolving arms


Check that the jets at the ends of the wash arms are not clogged with food particles. This is a constant problem. If they are clean and the machine pumps out water, the other problem could be the selector valve which changes over water flow direction

My hotpoint aquarius dwf30 will not drain so will not wash...


Do you hear the motor run or is there deadly silence when you select drain.
Does the wash cycle start - do you hear water getting in and washer arms move?
Are there any lights flashing?

Water sitting in bottom of washer after the dish cycle is done. How to fix?


If the water doesn't drain from your dishwasher, check these:
  1. Drain line/air gap--A clog in this part is the usual reason that a dishwasher doesn't drain. Remove the drain line to clear any debris from the hose or hose connection at the household drain line connection. Reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.
  2. Pump--You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher. Remove the lower rack, spray arm and support. Look for an impeller, a device that spins around and forces water through the spray arm. This is the wash impeller and beneath it is the drain impeller that pushes the water into the drain port. Replace it if found defective or worn out.
  3. Drain valve/solenoid---The drain valve may have a solenoid with lever that sticks or frozen and prevents the dishwasher from draining. Free up the solenoid and lubricate the lever.
  4. Belt---A certain brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. Replace it if broken or worn out.
  5. Motor---Check it if turning or working.Turn the rotor manually to see if stuck and free it up. Replace if defective, it is not serviceable.
