Hotpoint Dishwasher Blues... HDA469M-03WH

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?

Sincerely,
Catriv Superfan

    Hi Superfan, does the timer advance at all? When you start it, does it fill and just sit there or does the wash motor start? Number one would be the timer itself. I had cases of these GE-Hotpoints where the contacts go bad and they keep sending voltage to the drain solenoid and burn them up. Ohm out that timer motor, the motor that is advancing the timer cams. Should be around 3300 ohms. Let me know how you make out. Catriver.

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.

SOURCE: Fault with Hotpoint BCI45 Dishwasher

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.

SOURCE: GE Nautilus GSD4200 Dishwasher will not wash/drain

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.

SOURCE: door lock assembly Hotpoint dishwasher

Hello.
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.
Cheers

My 24in built-in hotpoint dishwasher leaves particles and film on dishes on the top rack


The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com to find out more info.

Hotpoint DWT10 Dishwasher error codes/lights


food stuck in drain pump remove and clean out or scoop out - soak up all water then fill with 3 or 4 hot litres of water . cancel programme , start new one ( first thing unit does is switch to drain cycle ).
Then rock machine back and forth - this sometimes frees jammed debris thus pumping out of machine.
This works for me i have done it several times and it works
