Question about Hotpoint Dishwashers
This is a common fault if your drain hose or the drain pipework after it is blocked by tissues or fluff etc remove the drain hose from the vertical drain pipe or u-bend connection and check that all are free of obstructions. Also a lot of machines have a filter located at the bottom of the machine either behind a flap at the front or located near the pump at (usually) the back of the machine underneath. This can be got at by either removing the back panel if there is one or tilting the machine forward to access it from underneath chock the drum with wood to avoid drum suspension damage or re- attach the drum bolts which were removed when the machine was delivered if you still have them. The pump will have a rubber hose attached before it and the pump is connected to the machine end of the drain hose, often the rubber hose is large bore and incorporates a hard plastic filter designed to trap buttons coins etc before entering the pump and damaging the impeller blades, remove any debris.
In essence you are making sure the the whole drainage route from the drum to the final drain point is clear and free flowing.
