On my unit, the float is underneath a small half sphere (I presume the LHS cover - whatever that is) to the right side of the door at the bottom. One small screw holds the cover on. Just take the cover off and work the small float/switch up and down a couple of times to free it up. This will allow the float to open the switch so the water line can fill the dishwasher.

There is a small float and micro switch behind the LHS cover which if activated will stop the water flow. you will need to remove the top cover(dont forget to unplug from the mains first !). then remove the side cover, you should find a clear plastic unit with a red float in side this maybe gumed up with scale. if so you should clean to allow the float to be free. this float activates a micro switch via a red arm. if this switch is stuck in this will stop the water flow. or the switch maybe faulty.

I have a Hotpoint BF71 dishwasher. I put it on but it hasn't worked, it filled with water which won't drain not will it even start now. I took out the filter but I couldn't find any blockages Help!

Reset the power at the breaker, but you may need a new pump and motor assembly. The same pump washes and drains on most Hotpoint models- a solenoid is used to open a drain flap and let the water out, but a bad pump will equal no wash or drain...

My Hfdw80 dishwasher wont start.There is a motor winding noise but no water?Hotpoint

Hi First you have to check the water valve to see if it has power during the time it should be filling the washer , Set the unit to fill and wash you know where it normally starts filling with water , remove the two wires from the water valve and check to see if you have power going to the valve , you have to eleminate things to find out what the problem is , if you have power then check to see if you have water to the valve, if you have water and you have power but you arent getting water then the water valve is bad , and this will be a cheep easy fix , have a good day

Hotpoint dwg60 does not fill with water

If the water overflow circuit has been triggered then it can lock the inlet valve. Check if the float device at the base of dishwasher is moving up and down when pressed.

Alternatively, the inlet valve may be faulty.

After commencing a programme my Hotpoint BF71 dishwasher takes in water but overfills, filling the whole of the tub nearly to door level. The waste pump starts for a short burst and then more water comes...

Check for a float switch that senses the water level. It may have two level sense of filled and overfill the latter would trigger the waste pump to avoid a flood. If the filled switch has failed, that could cause the problem. The waste pump MAY also be triggered on the basis of the filling taking too much time before the filled switch actuates... if it has failed, the time would be exceeded.

The tank where the salt goes should that be filled with water, never used a dishwasher before

Yes it should. Mine is always full of water when I fill it with salt. If there is no water how can the salt dissolve?

Hotpoint dishwasher DF51, no water getting through

possible clog in screen on inlet side of water valve. This is a blue plastic assembly that the water line connects to. Remove the water line from machine look at screen inside water valve to see if it is clogged. If not, you need to check to see if there is power being delivered to water silenoid by dishwasher ( use an electric meter ) during the fill/rinse cycle the dishwasher will send a current to the silenoid toi activate it during those two cycles If silenoid does not open water will not fill dishwasher. Silenoid is bad a new one can be purchased at low cost and is easy to install. Purchase it at a appliance parts warehouse.

My Hotpoint dishwasher won't fill with water. I have not used it for quite a while and last time I've used it (about a year or two ago) it worked fine.

abviosely check that there is water going into it but also check the float switch. There should be a bobber type of thing that goes up and down when the water fills in there. Move that up and down to see if it's stuck. You should here a click of a switch when doing that. If that doesn't do it let me know.

Hotwater runs continuously

It sounds like a little piece of trash (precipitated solids in the water line) have gotten in the water valve, or, the fill switch has failed.

If you know how to use a voltmeter, then see if there is voltage always applied to the water solenoid. If not, the water solenoid valve is bad. If it does have voltage all the time (when it's not supposed to be filling) then it's the fill switch.
