Question about Hotpoint 24 in. DF55 Free-standing Dishwasher

1 Answer

Hotpoint DF53 will not start.

I have purchased a fairly new DF53, which I think is almost the same as the 55.
All connections are good, water, electric and drain, but when turned on, the light comes on but no water enters.
When water is added manually, it just tries to wash with what is in the machine; will not progress, fill, heat or empty.
The running light is on all the time and is not affected by the on-off switch.

Re: Hotpoint DF53 will not start.

When you say fairly new , i assume its been used before , so you probably dont have warranty . You could have a programme problem , in which case its cheaper to buy a new one or check the solenoid at the water entry point to the machine , this has to activate and stop in order for the machine to proceed through the programme.

I have a Hotpoint BF71 dishwasher. I put it on but it hasn't worked, it filled with water which won't drain not will it even start now. I took out the filter but I couldn't find any blockages Help!

Reset the power at the breaker, but you may need a new pump and motor assembly. The same pump washes and drains on most Hotpoint models- a solenoid is used to open a drain flap and let the water out, but a bad pump will equal no wash or drain...

Our hotpoint fdw60 won't wash properly if at all water goes in but it does not seem to wash and we get a code of AL10 too

AL10 means open circuit in heating circuit. ie not heating which will also explain poor wash results.

can be a fairly involved job and should be left to someone who knows what they are doing.

on other hand could be as simple as a broken wire inside the door skin, just remove and give all the wires a good tug.

I did not put salt in my new dishwasher just used a tablet. DIshwasher started up and then stopped saying water flow problem was this my fault? Rang service desk who were very rude and made a big thing...

absolutly not your fault robert. nothing to do with salt atal. if its water flow problem could be a faulty flow meter in which case if ur dishwasher is under 28 days u can refuse a repair and demand a replacement.

hotpoint cal centre famous for their rudeness and i hear this complaint regulary about them. they will look for any way to blame you for breaking dishwasher. just be firm with them

Hotpoint 7844 very slow to fill. Takes half hour after initial pump out before it starts. Water just trickles in very slowly, with the solenoid valve humming faintly the whole time. But works fine...

Water fill problem on Hotpoint Dish Washer Deluxe Model DF 31

Pl check the small filter fitted near the water inlet hose. Probably you may have to pull this filter as this is housed in the threaded pipe attached to the body.

Remove the hose from the machine and try flushing. see whether you get sufficinet pressure from over-head tank!

Clean the filter with tooth brush or reverse clean. Do no for get to fit rubber washer.

wow, slow down. you should be looking for something simple. make sure your door lever is in the off position and or the timer at the off position for safety's sake. take bottom cover off. turn the fins on the motor counter clockwise. the seals in the motor pump assembly may be stuck. this is a very simple design washer. good luck.

Hotpoint dishwasher DF51, no water getting through

possible clog in screen on inlet side of water valve. This is a blue plastic assembly that the water line connects to. Remove the water line from machine look at screen inside water valve to see if it is clogged. If not, you need to check to see if there is power being delivered to water silenoid by dishwasher ( use an electric meter ) during the fill/rinse cycle the dishwasher will send a current to the silenoid toi activate it during those two cycles If silenoid does not open water will not fill dishwasher. Silenoid is bad a new one can be purchased at low cost and is easy to install. Purchase it at a appliance parts warehouse.

Hotpoint is not taking water inlet

If your thinking air in the water supply line, air won't be the cause. I would look to make sure there is not mineral buildup inside the valve, and that the valve is good.

Turn the water off, disconnect the line at the water valve, then carefully tirn the water abck on to make sure there is good flow from the water supply line. If there is, then look toward the dishwasher side. If not, look toward the water supply side.

My Hotpoint FDW60 dishwasher - I select new programme (normal 55 degree wash) and it defaults to 45 degree wash green light flashing and just making a whirring sound but nothing else happens. I have tried pressing the restart button, holding it in until I get the continuous sound and then restarting the programme but the same thing happens
