    I've tried a reset by both holding the programm selection button down and by swithing the machine off. It doesn't help.

    resetting the machine does not help.

  • aphakey Jun 01, 2009

    filters in machine and the filter on the cold water supply are both clean.

    Any other ideas?

HI. this is a control fault. this control is unable to run a complete wash cycle due to this malfunction. the logic chips are damaged on the control/timer circuits. Replacing the control board will fix this issue.

You stated you have already initiated a reset sequence. this reset procedure will usually, fix a minor control glitch but, in this case, the control has major damage and, it should be replaced.

To confirm my diagnosis, i suggest you to unplug the unit for 5 minutes. if the unit continues to stop or cease to continue with the cycle, this will confirm control/timer failure. replace the control/timer circuits in this case as asap if possible.

    The flashing lights are a indication of a control malfunction.

This is most likely a blockage in the filter try thoroughly cleaning the filter and starting the cycle again as normal if this doesn't work then it will be the water solonoid valve alarm turn the washer off for 2 mins then on again and start cycle if it continues to happen you need to phone hotpoint on 07870066066 or www.theservicecentre.co.uk and they can help you. hope it's something simple.

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. :)

Why is my dishwasher flashing on the eco 45 button


This doe seem that the anti flood system has triggered. This device puts the machiene in pump out mode and shuts off the input water supply.
The device is a safety device that triggers once it detects a water leak (pipe / clamp) and consists of a polystireene float and micro switch at the floor of the washer. First check to see if the float has activated the micro switch and then dry the machiene floor and check for leaks.

Hotpoint BCI 450 error message not in the manual


I had this on my machine.This indicate the drain pump is broken. Probably due to a leak from the heating element pipe joint above it. You can easily replace the drain pump yourself. Costs around £30. I got mine from Curry's partmaster in the UK.

POWER ON-PROGRAM WONT WORK


1. No power to the dishwasherMake sure there's power getting to the dishwasher. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the dishwasher (inside the junction box, behind the bottom kick panel), if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

2. Door switch
Replace if defective.

3. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

4. Selector switch
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Hotpoint dishwasher bci450


Here are the eco related error codes for your washer..
1)Light 3 (eco) flashes. Water is present in the flood catching tray at the bottom which usually indicates that there is a leak somewhere. More often than not this is just a pipe with a poor fitting and simply tightening the clip is enough to stop the leak. Our machine had a very slow leak from one pipe (not enough to trigger the alarm) which was fixed in this way. The leak is detected by a small float switch located in the flood catch tray.

Undo 4 screws on the metal plate under the dishwasher 3 at the front 1 at the back, this reveals The pump check the seals are in place on the waste pump.

2) Wash indicator lights 3 + 5 (eco + pre) flashing rapidly. Filter is clogged. Pull out the filter and clean it.
3)Runs for approx. 3 minutes and then stops. Lights 3 + 4 (eco and fast) flash. Probably caused by being plumbed into a hot rather than cold water supply. The incoming water is hotter than required for the wash which causes the machine to cut out. Plumbing the machine into a cold water supply will fix the problem with no apparent long term problems.
