I think if you push the heated wash and heated dry button several times until all the buttoms light up this will fix your problem.

 A clean light that flashed repeatedly 7 times then off. Reset as above with the heated wash and heated dry buttons. You may then noticed a reduced flow from the pump so dissasemble the lower arm and water inlet assy.You may find it mostly plugged with foregin matter and some othe junk. Upon removal of that stuff and reassembly,It may work as new!

My BF162 runs with the door open. I also cannot


Yup, could be that pesky door latch, or even the control panel board. This could be a case for a repair man or replacement, depending on the cost.

The program light goes off and the BF162 doesn't start...


When you keep the button pressed for a few seconds the lights go off, this resets the dishwasher. Then press the p button again to the program you want 1st light is heavy soil 2nd light is normal soil, 3rd light is eco wash, 4th light is rinse. At the end of the cycle the program light you have selected will flash.

You will have to reset the console. To do this, close the door and press these buttons in sequence...

-high temp wash
-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry

...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

BF162 Hotpoint intergrated dishwasher


consult manual under troubleshooting.
if no manual, or if it does not address this, consult service center.

one likely cause you can try first is to disconnect it from power via the cord or a breaker. after a brief period, it may reset itself.
otherwise you likely have a logic board issue.

logic boards seem to be very vulnerable in dishwasher environments. the type of issue you have is very common among most brands. don't feel alone.

good luck

Dishwasher just draines and nothing else??


this sounds like it could be the heater element has gone faulty, it is quite difficult to get to test it with it being built in, but basically gain access to the underneath of the appliance and you can test it with a test meter for open circuit, it is also possible that a wire has either come off or broken, the pump pumping out is like a safety mechanism, the eco wash may work because this uses no heat? (some models) the answer i have given you is based on the info you have supplied if i have helped please rate me, thank you, please work safe unplug when working on appliances

Cycle wont run and lights on main washes flash


When you switch it on can you still select the wash type ?
If you can, when you shut the door does it start the cycle normally by pumping out the sump, but then when the wash pump (the cause of the main noise during the cycle) would normally start it stops and beeps - opening the door then shows the flashing error code ?

If your symptoms are the same as above or similar, suspect the heater is stuffed. My BFI62 did the above and it turned out to be a faulty (open circuit) heater. As I had no knowledge of dishwashers at the time, I called in a repair guy. As soon as he saw the fault code he suspected the heater - seems a batch of heaters (from the USA) had proved very unreliable (apparently Hotpoint got compensation from the manufacturers because of the number of problems it caused them). The replacement was made in Germany and the repair guy said he'd not known one of those to go faulty !
The repair guy diagnosed the heater open circuit from the control panel inside the door without even removing the dishwasher from it's location. Unfortunately, I didn't have a chance to note which wires ran off the board to the heater. Changing the heater needed it out and on it's side (be prepared for quite a lot of water on the floor).

Finally, when he'd fitted the new heater, it took him two goes to get the pipes either side of it to seal properly - quite common apparently and the source of even more water on the floor !

Hope this helps.
