    Hi.
    I have the same problem.
    I put it on for an ecowash, however after about 20 seconds there is a beep and the first light starts flashing. The dishwasher makes the normal noise for those twenty seconds but it doesn't kick in with the water.

    Any solutions please let me know.

    1st indicator light flashing, tried to reset, no joy. Problem started when kitchen fitter had replace door panel. Possible he had banged it and disturbed wire in control panel?

    Manual does not give fault code and directs you to call in a Hotpoint engineer £££££. Would be cheaper to buy a new one if no one can help!!!! PLEASE help as I have to pay the kids to wash-up!!

Just had the same problem... Apparently this is a small design fault with the overflow. Pull off the front black panels at the bottom of the dishwasher and check for water in the tray. Drain off with a sponge and try again. This can happen when a plate is positioned over the overflow (gray plastic thing sticking up inside the dishwasher next to the lower spray arm), when in use. This causes water to run down the plate directly onto the overflow, which leaks and allows water to escape into the tray below

Zanussi dishwasher ZDF601M 1 in 3 red light comes on and programme doesn't work through


26269906-aipk5px1bmfkdpsmrgevaqwn-3-0.jpg "3 in 1" function
This appliance is equipped with the "3 in 1" function, that
allows the use of the "3 in 1" combi detergent tablets.
This function can be selected with all washing programmes.
With the selection of this function the inflow of rinse aid and
salt from each respective supply container is automatically
deactivated and also the indicator lights for salt and rinse aid
are deactivated.
Select the "3 in 1" function before the set of a washing
programme.
Once this option is selected (indicator light illuminated) it will
remain active also for the following washing programmes.
With the use of the "3 in 1" function, the cycle durations may
change. In this case, in the digital display, the indication of the
running time of the programme is automatically updated.
NOTE: Once the programme is running, the "3 in 1" function
can NO longer be changed. If you want to exclude the "3 in 1"
function you have to cancel the programme setting (see
chapter "Starting a washing programme" - "Cancel a washing
programme in progress") and then deactivate the "3 in 1"
function.
In this case you have to set a washing programme (and
options) again.

Activation/deactivation of the "3 in 1" function
(The dishwasher must be switched off)

1. Press the On/Off button. The On/Off indicator light
illuminates (setting mode).If a programme button indicator light is on, this means that a washing programme is set. The programme must be cancelled: press simultaneously function buttons 2 and 3
for about 2 seconds. All the indicator lights will turn off (except for the On/Off indicator light and eventually salt and rinse aid indicator lights) indicating that the set programme has been cancelled and the machine is now in setting mode.

2. Press simultaneously function buttons 2 and 3, until the
indicator lights of function buttons 1, 2, 3 and 4 start
flashing.

3. Press function button 4, the indicator lights of function
buttons 1, 2 and 3 turn off while the indicator light of function
button 4 goes on flashing.

4. Press function button 4 again, the "3 in 1" indicator light
illuminates, indicating that the "3 in 1" function is active.
To deactivate the function press function button 4 again, the
indicator light turns off.

5. To memorise the operation, switch off the dishwasher by
pressing the On/Off button or wait about 60 seconds after
which the dishwasher will automatically return to setting
mode.

Zanussi zdt 6053 usually will not run full cycle (on any cycle) but stops with constant error beeps. But it is draining ok and sometimes goes full cycle (not often) Any ideas?


Could be anything!
If you suspect that there is a fault then it will be displayed by blinking LED "END OF CYCLE". As the display of failure in hexadecimal code it can flash up to max. 15 times than short pause and after that repeat fault code. You must to count the number of times the LED "END OF CYCLE" flash up.

Example from user manual: Anti-flood device is activated.
- continuous flashing of the indicator light of the running programme
- 3 intermittent audible signals
- 3 flashes of the END OF CYCLE indicator light
(which means "i30" fault code, the cycle is interrupted and the
drain pump switches on).
Possible causes:
Water leakage from the tub - sump and various connections
(pump, upper spray arm duct etc.); floating sensor blocked
mechanically; microswitch faulty; fill solenoid blocked
mechanically; circuit board faulty (solenoid triac short-circuited);
wiring faulty.
26226179-aipk5px1bmfkdpsmrgevaqwn-3-1.jpg Could be also:
To cancel a washing programme in progress:
- Open the dishwasher's door.
- Press the programme selection/cancel button for about 3 seconds,
until the indicator light of the running programme turns off and the
END OF CYCLE indicator light flashes, indicating that the running
programme has been cancelled and that the machine has
returned to setting mode. It is now possible to select another
washing programme. If a new washing programme will be
selected, check that there is detergent in the detergent dispenser.

NOTE: only during the drying phase, if the dishwasher's door will be opened and remains open for more then 30 seconds, the running programme will be automatically cancelled and the machine will return to setting mode. This will happen, always only during the drying phase, also when the machine is switched off by pressing the
On/Off button and remains switched off for more then 30 seconds.

The start button doesn' come on when I select a programme? Any thoughts why not


could be a door latch problem, trytry pushing on the door when selecting cycle. also try disconnecting the power either by unplugging or cutting power at the breaker switch. leave te power off for 1 minute. this is to reset the control board, also check for water under the unit by removing the kick plate located below the door. most high end dishwashers have soid botom enclosures and a sensor that will cut off most if not all functions when water comes in contact with it. with the kick plate removed you should be anle to see the bottom of the pan and if water has leaed into it.

Model ESL 499. Why doesn't it start?


You have activated the delayed start function. Please read following instruction from user manual.

8. Delayed Start button

Allows the start of the programme to be delayed by a minimum of 1 hour, up to 9 hours. How to set the delayed start When the button is pressed, the number appears in the display (4). Press the button again to select the number of hours by which you wish to delay the programme start, up to a maximum of 9. E.g.: if you have selected number , the wash programme will start in 2 hours' time. To cancel the delayed start set, press the button until the number appears. Close the dishwasher door to start the countdown: a long audible signal (about one second) informs you that the function is active. If you open the door again you will see, in the display (4), how long there is to go (in hours) before the programme starts. A flashing dot in the digital display means that the delayed start function has been activated. Opening the door has no effect on a countdown which has already been started. If, during the countdown, you wish to see the programme number selected in the display, press the Programme Selector button (5). If, after having started the countdown by closing the dishwasher door, you wish to cancel the delayed start, press button (9) (Cancel) for about 2 seconds until the short «instruction accepted «signal is heard».

Modifying a wash cycle in progress:

If a mistake was made during the wash cycle selection process it is possible to change the cycle, provided that it has only just begun: open the door, taking care to avoid the escaping steam, and press and hold the ON/OFF button; the machine will switch off with a long beep. Switch the machine back on using the ON/OFF button and select the new wash cycle using the SELECT WASH CYCLE button; start the cycle by closing the door.

Can I turn the beeper off on the end of the washcycle on the DDY062 Hoover dishwasher. I want to put it on timer delay and dont want to be woken in the middle of the night.


These are the instructions taken directly from the DDY062 manual:
Alarm mute for the PROGRAMME END
The alarm for the programme end may be muted as follows:
IMPORTANT The dishwasher must be ALWAYS off before start this procedure.
1. Hold down the "PROGRAMME SELECTION" button and at the same time switch on the dishwasher by pressing the "ON/OFF" button (a brief audible signal will sound).
2. Keep the "PROGRAMME SELECTION" button pressed for at least 15 seconds (during this time, 2 audible signals will sound).
3. Release the button when the second audible signal sounds (3 "PROGRAMME SELECTION" indicator lights will come on).
4. Press the same button again: the 3 indicator lights (which indicate that the alarm is activated) will start flashing (to indicate that the alarm is off).
5. Turn off the dishwasher by pressing the "ON/OFF" button to confirm the new setting.
To turn the alarm on again, follow the same procedure.

Our F&P DD601V2 double dishdraw is showing error 'U3' and the water does not totally drain out after a cycle, any ideas? Thanks


This applies to all DD601 and DD603 dishdrawers.
U3 is either one of the following:
- Drain pump is blocked.
- Drain hose is blocked.
- Sprayarm or rotor not turning freely.
- Motor electronics have failed.
- Machine set to 'LP' on a high pressure water supply.

Often it's just the last one, "Machine set to 'LP' on a high pressure water supply.", as this can be unintentionally changed by a user from an uncommon course of events. Sometimes, due to the technical design of the way the buttons work, if water bridges the 2 "Programme" and "Eco" buttons (inside on the top right of the tub), pressing either one, or both, (or just having your finger in the water) for longer than 5 seconds brings up a special mode that a user, in their ignorant attempts to get out of it, can erroneously change the pressure setting, subsequently causing a U3 error. It happened to me once when I was cleaning the machine, wiping around the Programme buttons.

To change to the proper High or Low Pressure settings:
1) LCD Display on. Hold the Programme and Eco touch switches simultaneously for 5 seconds.
2) Machine beeps and "HP" or "LP" is displayed in the LCD.
3) Push the Start/Pause button to toggle between them.
4) Push the Power button when correct selection complete.

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.
