Question about Hotpoint Dishwashers

Open Question

Water remains in bottom of Hotpoint dishwasher.

Just bought a used (very new-looking) Hotpoint dishwasher & started it at Normal wash cycle. It goes thru like everything is OK, except leaves water in bottom of washer when it completes its cycle. Water remains to a height of the bottom of door, though no water leaks out of the dishwasher itself. I ran it thru 2 Normal wash cycles and it leaves water in the bottom section each time. Is this normal? The appliance guy I bought it from does not service the d/w (???...don't ask me why).

Most common reason is that the lower spray arm splits on the seem and sprays water under the door, to proove if it is this remove lower spray arm and run through program if no leak fit new arm. Regards Advisor

SOURCE: greasy bottom in dishwasher

Hi there, you can get a product that has extra cleaning power designed for dishwashers to clean stubborn grease and calcium deposits. It works great and also clean up the waste hose and pump and valves in the machine. If the door seal is covering the grease in the front corner, you may have to clean it yourself as theat places it outside the washer.

Graeme

SOURCE: Dishwasher leaks water

hi there,
dishwasher leaking might be due to either of these causes, check these:

Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom
of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you.
But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the
entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from
leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher,
remove the:

* Lower rack
*Spray arm
* Spray arm support
* Wash/drain impellers

Then try the seal out of its housing and replace it.

Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly.
You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.

Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the
rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten
or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues
to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the
dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the
leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

Cycle starts, but does not fill with water


When I start a new cycle, I first hear the pump run to empty out all remaining water, and after that I hear the motor run for the regular washing cycle, but there is no water in the dishwasher. After a few minutes, the cycle stops, and the washer claims the dishes are 'clean'. When I try starting a new cycle over and over again, about one in 20 times, the cycle will run normally with water. But then the next time, the problem starts all over again. Once a cycle starts correctly, everything works fine, including the rinsing.

Bf72 not doing the wash cycle correctly


If you are using hot water connection then check the temperature of incoming water is hot enough. If cold water inlet only is used then most likely the heater element or thermostat in the dishwasher is faulty and the water is not heating enough.
