Question about Hotpoint Dishwashers
ok, just a few minutes after posting this as a fault, I have opened the covers, the machine has a leak, the undertray has a sensor which has detected this, flashing light (prog 45 degC wash) flashing is a code to indicate leak sensor active.
Other prog lights flashing indicate a different fault, the following details each... this is a cut/paste from another forum site, copied without permission....

Cannot guarantee 100%accurate but you all might like what the flashing fault codes actually refer to, note what follows are pointers to what bit has gone wrong only. You should have the programmes running left to right: led1=intensive,led2=normal,led3=eco,led4=fast,led5=prewash,led6=delicate wash.ok so when this heap of western european tosh goes wrong one or two lights will flash this is what they mean:led3=m/ch has o/flowed water . ie the base underneath has sensed a leak.4=i/let h2o valve u/s or slow fill.5=thermister(electronic thermostat) is u/s or more likely the pcb .6=timeout heating which means the thermister senser between the door halves has become faulty or detached.3+4=no pump out,slow pump out,pcb u/s,blockage.4+5=tap off i/let valve.3+5=wash motor not coming on -seized,winding o/cic.but can also mean mesh plte filter badly blocked.1+4software fault with pcb.4+6=heating cic u/s (usually the heater tube )but can be the heater relay on pcb.3+4=pcb u/s.I don`t except any responsiblity for this being spot on or near spot on!! hope this helps someone.Try NOT to electrocute yourselves please!! If your not at all confident walk away and get "someone" who knows what they are doing.Cheers. jawa592

hi, just found this forum after searching the web 4 a solution to my hotpoint DWF50 problem.
I came down this morning to a machine which base tray was full of water and lights 3 ECO & 4 Fast flashing.
Anyway my solution was as i had seen a hotpoint engineer do once before was to press the start/reset button trip the catch, to fool the machine into thinking the door is closed then put in a program, press start, the machine hums slightly but doesnt do anything then after removing the large filter from the tray at the bottom underneath the lower basket insert a length of wire, with a loop on the end (Tip i used a wire coat hanger from the dry cleaners) poke in ythe hole that the dirty water drains from, after a bit of poking about the pump started working and the water drained away. Tip place a hook at the other end of your wire impliment to put your finger in to stop the wire getting caught in the pump mechanisim. After wards u have to hook back the door catch to the normal position, Tip another piece of the coat hanger with a right angled piece at the end will do this. This worked for me, saved me some money esp as D & G insurance ran out 2 weeks ago.....stu
