I usually use my dish washer once a month. When I use it, it does a good job and at the end of its programe there is no water left at the bottom of the machine. But after 6 or 7 days the water comes back to the bottom of the machine. and I have to reset the machine to drain the machine. Would you tell me what is wrong with it? It is Hot Piont DWF33. Thanks Marzi

Re: water comes back
I assume you mean that water is coming into the machine when not in use. a common cause of this is if the drain pipe is connected into a spigot on the sink trap. every time you empty water from the sink, some goes down the drain pipe and fills up the machine. the cure is to take the drain pipe up in a swan neck as high as you can under the sink

If your dishes are coming out of the dishwasher covered by a removable
dirty film, your water may not be hot enough, or you could be using an
inferior brand of automatic dishwashing detergent. If you have tested
your hot water and find it is between 140 degrees and 160 degrees
Fahrenheit, consider how long it takes for the hot water to reach the
dirty dishes in the dishwasher. If the hot water has to travel a long
distance to reach the dishwasher, chances are the water filling the
dishwasher starts out cold. To alleviate this problem, run the hot
water nearest to your dishwasher until the water coming out is hot.
This will guarantee the water filling the dishwasher is as hot as it
should be to properly clean dirty dishes.
To remove this type
of film from dirty dishes, after running the dishes through a basic
rinse cycle, set a bowl filled with a cup or two of white vinegar on
the lowest rack of the dishwasher. Remove any metal pans or utensils,
and with the vinegar on the bottom rack, wash the dishes as usual.
Dirty dishes that were once covered in film should come out squeaky
clean hope this help? thanks.
The problem is hard water. www.dishwasherfilter.com has a product to solve this problem once and for all. It filters the water going into your dishwasher and removes the hard minerals that leave those spots. It is very affordable and even has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look with this product.
This is due to one of two issues, either the water from the house is
restricted or the valve in the machine needs replaced.
To determine which it is, you will need to turn off the water to the dishwasher, the valve for the dishwasher water is usually under the sink. Remove the hose/pipe from the dishwasher inlet valve. The image below shows the water valve as part 744, it is accessible on the front left corner once you take off the lower kick panel.
With the hose taken off of this valve (744) put the hose in a bucket or put towels on the end and turn the valve back on from under the sink. We want to make sure you are getting good water flow to the dishwasher, if this is slow then you will need a plumber to find out why the water in the home is slow if this is flowing good then you will need to replace the valve on the dishwasher (744), the part number to use when purchasing the new valve is WD15X10003
The problem is hard water and your softener must not be taken it all out. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system.It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee.You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com to find out more info.
Sure its redeemable if you have the time and money. If I understand you correctly when you move the lowewr spray arm the water drains out? If this is the case then more than likely its a pump motor or solenoid. Reason I say this is on the bottom of the spray arm is a impeller and under that is filter and then pump impeller that drains the water. If its not draining but will by hand then its your pump motor or solenoid. When you start the washer then press cancel/drain do you hear anything? Maybe a humming sound. One more thing could be a thermal fuse for the motor. These are usually not resetable its a one time fuse if it blows you have o buy another one.Hope this helps
sounds like your heating element is not working prtoperly or you are not washing in very hot water stop washer in middle of cycle and open it if steam come out hot steam be careful keep face away when you open itif not hot that could be the problem,A appliance serviceman once told me if water is hot enough and end of wash and rinse cycle not to run the dry cyvcle just open dryer a few inches and let the steam out Run hot water over a plate or a pot and set it in the drain tray in your sink notice how fast it dries itself while draining in the tray very hot water in a dish washer dopes the same good luck with this problem I hope my advice helps you oh yes one more thing always run the hot water till it get hot before you turn your dishwasher on
1. not enough water gets into the dishwasher. open the dishwasher 3-4
times during cycle, you should see some water at least once, if not -
check water valve, water level float and water pressure.
2. the pump is clogged - there is water, the motor will run but no
water is circulated. Check pump filters, check chopper and impeller.
