HI. this is just a control fault. you can try to reset the core program by unplugging this unit for 5 minutes. this will drain all power and reset the core on the timer/control.

If you experience the same situation after this reset, simply replace the control/timer module.

Tip

Tips For Dishwasher for its safety and getting dishes cleanest


A) If your household is small, try gradullay accumulating a full load of dishes and rinsing as you go, instead of stacking dirty dishes in the dishwasher.

B) Cleaners and some elbow grease will always get pots and pans cleaner then the pots and pans cycle on the dishwasher.

C) Good crystal and china should be hand washed and not placed in the dishwasher since the detergents and jostling can damage them quite easily.

D)It can take several hours for dishes to dry when using the no-heat dry option the dishwasher. Try propping the door open to speed the drying process.

Long cycles


Hello Shawn, thank you for your question!

If your dishwasher is taking too long to complete a cycle, first you need to make sure the water is 120F at the sink. If water is less than 120F it causes a delay in the performance and advancement of the timer until proper water temperature is reached. Run the sink to its hottest point, start a "pots and pans wash cycle". If that cycle runs over 4 hours, then I recommend reaching out to a service technician since more than likely the issue lies with the control board. If it runs under 4 hours it is possibly fine, it is only heat delays causing it to run so long.

Hope this helps!

Manual for hotpoint how to work it


  • Load the appliance with dirty dishes, placing soiled pots and pans on the lower rack where they will be subjected to the most vigorous cleaning. Glassware and dishwasher-safe plastics should go on the top rack. It is not necessary to rinse dishes before loading them in the Hotpoint appliance, unless the dishes have been sitting for awhile and the food particles have dried.

  • Fill the detergent compartment with your preferred brand of dishwashing detergent, and add glass rinse solution to the rinse reservoir on the inside of the door if your model is equipped with one, then close the door to lock in place.

  • Select the cycle you wish to use and press the button. For pots and pans, use the heavy-duty cycle. Normal wash is fine for dishes and utensils.

  • Save on your energy bill by running the dishwasher only when it is full and by allowing the dishes to air dry instead of using the heat dry function on the appliance.

    The washing cycle takes 2 hours to complete


    Make sure the sani cycle is not selected, or pots and pans, also with the dry cycle most will take about 2 hours, if your dishes are not that dirty use the short cycle. Be sure your water is at least 130 F. Run hot water at faucet before starting the machine.

    Not enough water in tub


    Mderford, on a normal fill, the water should be just above the filter screen. 1.8 gallons first fill, 1.7 on all other fills. Don't think it would be a siphoning problem as you are not having this on the pots/pans. Check the float, make sure it is not sticking. You can check the inlet valve filter screen to see if it is not plugged. Run it through the diagnostics cycle by pushing high temp-air dry-high temp-air dry. Some models it's heated dry-normal-heated dry-normal. It will run through a self test for about 20 minutes. See if any error codes come up. Fill time should be approx. 1:30 to 1:40 seconds. If any of the aformentioned doesn't turn up any results, then it's possibly a faulty fill valve drive circuit on the control itself...Catriver..post back.
