    Thanks for sugesting replacing the water inley valve. I have found that to order the correct valve I need to know if the machine is a DWF33N a
    DWF33P or a DWF33S. I can not find this on the machine. The serial number is-
    5600041012/03/56/10:11 can you help identify the type of machine it is?

  • crumblebee Jun 30, 2008

    Thanks for that. The number was inside the door , on the top edge. The number is DWF33P. Now I can buy the water valve as you recommended. But the machine looks all sealed up at the back. Where is the valve? How do I get to it?
    Thanks Paul

  • crumblebee Jun 30, 2008

    Where is the water inlet valve situated in a Hotpoint Aquarius DWF33P? What must I remove to see the valve?

  • crumblebee Jul 01, 2008

    Which panels do I take off to get access to the water inlet valve and the float switch?

  • crumblebee Jul 01, 2008

    Thanks for your help

    Hi
    The machine seems to be all sealed up with no way to see switches, pumps or motors. I took off the plastic kick plates at the front of the machine but there is no access panel at the front. I never did find the float switch. The water inlet valve is at the rear of the machine. The water inlet valve is mounted on the only removable access panel that I found on the machine. It is a small plastic panel. I replaced the water inlet valve and the machine filled OK. Job done. Thanks for everyone's help.

1) First make sure the water is turned on. Check the hot-water supply stop valve, normally located under the sink. Open it all the way by turning it counterclockwise. If there is no reason this would have been turned off since the last time the dishwasher worked, go on to the next step.
2) Turn off the power to the dishwasher.
3) When the dishwasher is cool, look for the float inside the dishwasher; this is usually a small plastic dome or cylinder mounted inside at the tub's base, near the front. When you move most types of floats up and down, you can hear them click because they trip a lever (they are spring-loaded).

Lift out the float mechanism, and clean around the float tube. Many floats must be disconnected from below; to do this you'll have to remove the lower access panel. Rinse off the float, replace it in the tube, and make sure it moves up and down freely.
4) If you're experienced with minor repair work, shut off the hot-water valve to the appliance. Locate the water intake valve, behind the dishwasher's bottom front panel; disassemble the valve to reveal the screen; clean debris from the screen; and reassemble. If the screen doesn't appear to be blocked, call a repairperson (he or she will probably need to replace the water intake valve).
5) If none of this helps, call a repairperson. Any of several parts—including the water inlet valve, pressure switch, and the timer or selector switch—may be faulty.

At the bottom left or right of the dishwasher, there's a water-inlet valve behind the access panel. This valve lets water flow into the dishwasher for the wash cycle. It is usually attached to the hot-water supply line, and to a tube that is then attached to the left or right side of the dishwasher. When the timer sends electricity to the valve, it opens and lets water into the dishwasher. The valve stops when the water level trips the float switch or when the timer stops sending electricity to the valve.

You will have to access this by removing the door from the front, not from the back. Here is an illustration to help you:

Most washing machines have the rating plate behind the door, either on the inside of the door (don't forget to check near the hinge) or on the door frame of the cabinet. Some hide it behind the kickplate at the base (front) Be careful if removing the front kickplate on cheap machines as they are often thin and the lugs easily break.
If you still can't find it, check behind the pump filter flap or door (if fitted) at the front of the machine. Other than that you would need to check the sides and back of the machine.

Hope that helps........

Hi,

If your dishwasher seems noisy, check these:

Water-inlet valve
Motor
Heater fan
Pump
Water-inlet valve An aging water-inlet valve can sometimes fail slowly, rather than all at once. It can shudder on and off rapidly, causing the incoming water lines to shake, rumble, and rattle--sometimes violently. If yours is doing this, replace the inlet valve.

Motor If it's the motor that's noisy, either of these may be the "culprit:"

  • As motor bearings wear out, they can become quite loud when the motor runs. They wear out quickly if they frequently get wet, because the water washes away the motor bearing grease. Bearings can get wet if the spin seal is defective. Then there will also be water leaking onto the floor beneath the dishwasher. Replace the seal if it leaks (read about the main tub seal in the "It leaks" section, later).


  • If, from beneath the dishwasher, you can see a round, plastic disc that's mounted to the top of the motor (a "slinger"), it may have broken free of the motor shaft. If so, it could be rattling around the shaft while the motor is running. If that's the problem, you need to replace the motor.


Heater fan If the heater fan bearings are rusted or worn, they may squeal, or scrape loudly during the drying cycle. If this is the problem, replace the fan motor. Alternatively, the fan blade may be loose. If so, you need to replace it.

Pump Small fruit pits, toothpicks, and fragments of glass sometimes get stuck in the pump. When this happens, open the pump and remove the debris. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher.

To get to the pump, you usually need to remove the lower rack, the spray arms, and the spray arm support from the inside of your dishwasher. A dishwasher pump isn't obvious. Look for an impeller--a round, plastic fan blade-type device that spins around and pushes the water toward the drain. When you can see the drain impeller, you should be able to see the clogging debris.

    If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these:

    Water-inlet valve
    Float switch



    Water-inlet valve

    The
    water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is
    defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located
    behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the
    device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a
    rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.




    Float switch

    The
    float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below
    the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the
    dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the
    dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets
    caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the
    dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

It's probably the heater element that has gone, but it could be a simpler fault like the pressure switch not activating. See this video it should give you the general idea

Our hotpoint DWF33 Aquarius seems to be going through it's cycle normally but at the end of the program the dishes are not clean, the tab drawer has opened but the tab is still hole. and there is no steam...


i removed the drain cover in the bottom of the dish area ( near the salt fill cap )and cleaned it out. poured boiling water in and closed the machine and ran it with the hottest setting, empty.
this seams to have cured it

Hotpoint aquarius dwf30 dishwasher


you can plumb into hot but there are some snags
first hot water pressure is often a lot lower than cold so the machine may take a long time to fill
second if the water is too hot it will destroy the resin of the water softener and you will see brown marks on the crockery.
third it a bit uneconomical as you will use a lot of hot water
