Hello,

Carefully pou of the machine for some time from the wall allow it for some minute then put on the operate it as expected carefully.then if the problem remain then apply the below tip to solve the problem if you have the bass tools to olve the problem as recommend.

Remove the front access panel (see step 1, "Tightening the fittings"). This will give you access to the dishwasher's adjustable feet.
  • Open the door completely and remove the bottom dish rack.
  • Unscrew the dishwasher from the kitchen countertop so the dishwasher can move freely as you adjust the feet.
  • Check to see if the dishwasher is level side to side. Place a small level inside the dishwasher so it's sitting on the bottom pan and facing parallel to the front lip of the dishwasher. If the dishwasher is not level, use adjustable pliers to turn one of the dishwasher's front feet up or down until you hit level.
  • Check to see if the dishwasher is level front to back. Turn the level perpendicular to the door, and place it on one of the bottom ledges that run along the side of the cabinet. Check the level again. If the dishwasher isn't level, use your adjustable pliers to turn the back feet up or down until you hit level.

    Water leaking at the bottom of the door


    Tightening the fittings
    1 Remove the service panel that runs along the front of the dishwasher just below the door. If it is screwed in place, remove the screws with a screwdriver. If the panel hangs on hooks, pull the panel out and swing it up to remove it from the hooks.
    2 Check the end of the drain hose that connects to the dishwasher. If it's leaking, tighten the clamp with a screwdriver.
    3 Check the drain hose connection to the kitchen sink drain. Again, if it's leaking, tighten the clamp with a screwdriver.
    4 Check for leaks around the water-inlet valve. If necessary, use an adjustable wrench to tighten the compression fitting that connects the water-supply line to the valve. If the fill hose is leaking, replace the spring clamp that is on the hose with a worm-drive hose clamp. It produces more clamping pressure. Use adjustable pliers to compress the spring clamp so you can pull the clamp and hose off the valve. Remove the spring clamp from the hose. Buy a worm-drive clamp at your hardware store, then install it and tighten it with a screwdriver.

    Leveling the machine
    1 Remove the front access panel (see step 1, "Tightening the fittings"). This will give you access to the dishwasher's adjustable feet.
    2 Open the door completely and remove the bottom dish rack.
    3 Unscrew the dishwasher from the kitchen countertop so the dishwasher can move freely as you adjust the feet.
    4 Check to see if the dishwasher is level side to side. Place a small level inside the dishwasher so it's sitting on the bottom pan and facing parallel to the front lip of the dishwasher. If the dishwasher is not level, use adjustable pliers to turn one of the dishwasher's front feet up or down until you hit level.
    5 Check to see if the dishwasher is level front to back. Turn the level perpendicular to the door, and place it on one of the bottom ledges that run along the side of the cabinet. Check the level again. If the dishwasher isn't level, use your adjustable pliers to turn the back feet up or down until you hit level.
    6 Reattach the dishwasher to the countertop and reinstall the front access panel.

    Fixing a leaking door
    1 Inspect the door gasket. As it ages, the gasket can crack or become hard, preventing it from sealing completely.
    2 If the gasket appears solid, adjust the door latch so the door seals tightly. Loosen the screw that holds the door latch to the cabinet. Push the latch in slightly and retighten the screw. Test the door and readjust the latch if necessary.
    3 Replace the gasket if water continues to leak after you've tightened the latch. Most gaskets are held by compression in a groove on the door or on the dishwasher cabinet.
    4 Pull the old gasket out of its groove, using adjustable pliers (see illustration). Take the gasket to an appliance store to get a replacement.
    5 Soak the new gasket in warm water to soften it, then press it into the groove. Start at the top, then work your way down the sides and across the bottom.

    Hotpoint BF1620 Integrated dishwasher not working


    Lets try the following hope this works

    1.- unplug the appliance, isolate it from the electric supply.
    2.- Remove the kitchen unit plinth and check inside the inspection panels below the door to see if there is water in the base.

    If there is, sponge it out and then try the machine again.

    Programme jumps from one to another and sounds like the motor is just running on and wont start again for a while. It's not completing the programme.

    I have a Zanussi Fitted dishwasher and I notice that the board under my kitchen seems to be getting black,I think it is the dishwasher leaking water from underneath.. Is there any common problems with this...


    Yes sounds like some kind of water leak. Take of the front plinth and check underneath the units and DW. I presume you DW is adjacent to the sink so please cheak all pipes including waste asap. Also opening the DW door whilst it is running can splash water, over a period of time this could effect wood material and cause your problem.

    E4 shows up when i turn on my dishwasher


    E4 is an overfill code caused by water pressure problem.

    On the base of the unit - (underneath the kitchen plinth) there are 2 black plastic clip panels - each these of with a blunt knife or screw driver and turn off the appliance at the mains. In there you will see lots of wiring etc. Simply get a dish cloth and mop up any water that is in there, particularly at the back left as that is where the sensor that detects the over flow is. Its simply a rubber valve that is boyent and so lifts when water is present. then once most of the water is removed, turn on.The problem would be solved.

    TO PREVENT THIS HAPPENING - when you take off the kitchen plinth you will see 2 small clear pipes in the centre - between the 2 plastic panels. These are cable tied. Simple cut the cable tie and feed the pipes out of the dishwasher - place a bowl under tehre if you whish. This will prevent overfloww water enterin the base. BE WARNED BY DOING THIS THE DISHWASHER WILL NOT HAVE ANY OVERFLOW PROTECTION CAUSING POSSIBLE DAMAGE TO KITCHEN AND APPLIANCE. My advice would be to leave it in place but try to prevent overflow - i.e rinse plates first or try a different brand of wash tablets. If it does happen then the fix is simple and you definately do not have to remove the unit as many people imply.
