Question about Dishwashers
Hi, Catriv! I just wanted to thank you for your amazing advice. By looking at other threads I determined that I, in fact, needed to replace my door switch on my Hotpoint Dishwasher HDA469M-03WH. And unclog my motor. But now I'm faced with another problem. Sigh. My machine will now run (yay!), but the timer will not advance through the cycles. I can manually move the knob into the various cycles, but I'm afraid I might be doing more harm than good.
Any (furthur) advice?
SOURCE: TIMER DOES NOT ADVANCE
At the point where the wiring comes from the bottom of the tank and rises up the door is prone to burning. Before doing the following remove power from your dishwasher. By removing the kickplate at the front and inspacting the bundle of wires you may note that some of the wires are lumpy or burned. These wires need to be repaired. Failing that there is a cycling thermostat mounted to the bottom of the tank above the water valve. These cycling thermos will prevent the timer from advancing there should be a wiring diagram inside of the door that will help your efforts.

This a generic problem with hotpoint dishwashers..
Water is present in the flood catching tray at the bottom which usually indicates that there is a leak somewhere. More often than not this is just a pipe with a poor fitting and simply tightening the clip is enough to stop the leak. Our machine had a very slow leak from one pipe (not enough to trigger the alarm) which was fixed in this way. The leak is detected by a small float switch located in the flood catch tray.
Undo 4 screws on the metal plate under the dishwasher 3 at the front 1 at the back, this reveals The pump check the seals are in place on the waste pump.

The average life of a dishwasher is 7-10 years. The symptoms strongly indicate a motor pump problem and my personal opinion is if that is the case youd be better to put the money toward a new dishwasher.

First switch off the power.
Get the cabinet door off, start by removing the side screws that hold the door (please have someone to help you, holding the door, because this doors are heavy.)
After you removed the door, remove the screws holding the fascia (about 2 on each side + 2 holding the door lock).
Remove the fascia and you wil get acess to the door lock, disconnect the wiring from the micro switch, connect the new par and reverse the process.
