It sounds as if the pump is the problem, it may be blocked or more likely seized or the motor is dud.

My Hotpoint DWF40 Dishwasher flashes wash and rinse lights. Water fills and drains fine. How do i fix it?

Heating Element

If lights are flashing on the control panel, the heating element might have burned out. The heating element heats the water up to operating temperature. After a set amount of time if the temperature isn't reached a light on the control panel might start flashing. The heating element can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter.

Water in dishwasher, will not pump out. Noise when machine is turned on


Hi


Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller.
Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat.

Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Glasses in top rack not getting clean anymore.


-Have you changed the dishwasher soap recently? What are you using? Is the powder remaining behind in the soap dispenser?
-Have you removed the filter in the sump area, cleaned it and removed any debris under the filter. (watch out for broken glass that is almost always found in 5 year old dishwashers.)

-You are running water at the sink until it gets hot, but you may still have problems if the heating element has failed. Recommend you check that element. If you can get to the element, check resistence of the heater to see if is has any at all.
If heating element checks out good, the next common problem is a failing wash pump motor.

WIRLPOOL DISHWASHER COLD WATER CLEAN ONLY!!!


HI Nick- the element in the dishwasher dries the dishes and sometimes boosts the heat of the water. Your water should come in already hot, so the problem is either your hot water heater or that the plumbing line was switched to cold by mistake. Or that people are bathing, laundering, etc. and using all available hot water right before you run the dishwasher.
