1 Answer

DISHWASHER NOISE I HAVE A HOTPOINT DISHWASHER MODEL HDA3420Z02BB SERIAL # TT813162Y. IT IS ABOUT 10 YEARS OLD AND JUST TONIGHT DEVELOPED A CLICKING/ GRINDING NOISE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE DISHWASHER. I REMOVED THE LOWER COVERS AND IT APPEARS TO BE COMONG FROM THE MOTOR AREA OR I GUESS THAT IS THE PUMP ATTACHED TO IT. JUST WONDERED IF THERE IS A PATTERN FAILURE WITH THIS MODEL AND IF SO IS IT FAIRLY EASY REPAIRED?

    I have the same problem! It makes the sound immediately when you turn the knob.

    Great solution BUT... How do I go about removing something from the motor-pump assembly?

A noise could be created by something getting down into the motor-pump assembly piece of glass, piece of bone, wire tie anything really. If this is the case and you can remove it before it causes further damage problem solved. At ten years old the problem may be the motor and or pump one thing to consider before putting money into it is disheashers average 7-10 years these days. Good Luck.

How old is my Hotpoint dishwasher, model HDA3400G02WW Serial SG8047194 is??? My dishwasher humms, but doesn't runs at ALL. What could be the problem????


The motor is stuck. If you remove the lower cover and see a square aluminum motor it is less than 7 years old. Make sure power is off at breaker and rotate the motor shaft
by turning the fins inside the motor.
If the motor is black and round you have to turn
the fan blade which is located in a slot between the metal pump and the plastic
pump. Also once freed, a light shot of silicone or WD-40 (silicone works better) at the
bearing ends. Also check pump for leaks around the drain solenoid (shiny shaft attached
to a plastic triangle). If it's leaking during pumpout, the seal has failed. The pump runs
around 100 dollars typically. Hope this helps.

We just bought house that is five years old and the previous owner told us that the dihwasher had never been used. It is a Hotpoint Model 3400G02WW, with serial # LG804739Y. It will not come on, and...


The dishwasher should be plugged into a GFCI outlet, most likely in the cabinet under the sink. Check to make sure the outlet has not tripped. There should be test and reset buttons on the outlet. Reset it and try again. The GFCI outlet has a finite life span and I have seen the outlet fail. If there is no power after a reset, then try to replace the outlet with a similar one. If the outlet is not under the sink, it may be behind the dishwasher.

Dishwasher trips the fusebox.


You have a obvious short circuit.
Remove the lower panel and inspect the drain valve solenoid attached to the pump beside the motor.
These GE solenoids will stick and melt causing a short circuit.
If not that, open the front panel and inspect all wires for a break.

Dishwasher running on a short cycle, not cleaning


It is hard to be specific without knowing the model number of your Hotpoint dishwasher and approximately how many years old it is...

If your dishwasher has a mechanical timer knob that you turn to get the dishwasher started, I would suspect that it is failing (not advancing after a certain point.)

Please report back with what you find, OK?

Hotpoint Dishwasher Problem


Certainly sounds like the motor is seized. If it is quite old it may not be worth fixing, you should call your local appliance parts dealer with the dishwasher model and serial number and get a quote for a new motor.
