Question about Dishwashers
Problem: 30-year old hotpoint dishwasher
posted by ibkc on 01/13/2008
will run cycle but no water
checked float and float swith tested ok on multimeter. Will fill with pressure on float inside tub. but will not drain even though motor is kicking on in drain cycle. should I troubleshoot more or just buy a new dishwasher. Sears and others can not cross reference model number or they only have a few parts in catalog
#1. If you have to put downward pressure on the float in order to fill, then float switch is not OK.
#2. It would seem as though your pump impeller is missing some, or all vanes. (Not pumping water out).
#3. It will become even more difficult to find parts as time goes on.
#4. 30 years...It has done it's job. It has paid for the trip, It's time to move on, What else can I say.
