Hi, my Hotpoint BCI45 won't finish its program.
The other day it stopped during a cycle. I removed all the dishes and cleaned all the filters. Turned it on again and the water drained.
I then ran a programme with no dishes to clean the washer. Half way through it seemed to stall! I switched it off and on, it beeped a lot and still nothing. Now when I press the power button on the door no program light lights up.
Any suggestions?
Thanks

1. No power to the dishwasherMake sure there's power getting to the dishwasher. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the dishwasher (inside the junction box, behind the bottom kick panel), if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

2. Door switch
Replace if defective.

3. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

4. Selector switch
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Power on but mechine not start


If you are able to select the program but start button is not responding, then the door latch switch is not detecting closure of the dishwasher. Need to check this out.

Sometimes the machines get out of cycle and you have to remove power from the board to rest the electronics. After a while the code on the board gets corrupted and you need to reset. Try uplugging for 30 minutes to clear the board of power.

No error message, topped up rinse aid, turned off power at wall for 45 minutes, unable to press program buttons - it's like they are stuck - which would be unusual as it worked perfectly a few days...


Hi.

Turn off power again tripping circuit breaker or disconnecting the power cord. While power is off clean the drain well and remove any water present inside the tub using a sponge. Check also the door lock.

Connect power back and try starting a cycle.

If still no luck, let me know the appliance model number. In that case the dishwasher is probably faulty. A defective door switch or faulty control module may result in appliance not responding to commands.

Regards.

My dishwasher does not take water after switching on. I know that it has an Aquastopper. But I dont know where is it to activate it. I have Siemens Lady 45 Dishwasher.


@xronis69:
Probably the problem is to solve as easy as mine.

Did you ever consider that the error may be in front of the dishwasher? I didn't until I disassambled the washer and checked how it works. (As you also eventually tried to check the internet for a usermanual - you won't find maybe also none.)

This Lady's are build that easy, as every man would whish that all ladys work. ;)

You 've the round knob at the front of the dishwasher, this is some kind of "switching-clock".
This dishwasher (I don't know if model 45 is exactly the same, but it looks quite similar to mine) has no different washing programs, just ONE.

I always tried to "use" program "3", like the symbols suggested to me, that this would be for what I want to wash.
If you do so, the dishwasher starts in the middle of the washing-cycle and doesn't fill itself with water. It just wants to wash without water, as the water filling process starts in with the first step you can turn it to.

And what is also a bit "strange" for normal people, but maybe not for the real technical people. The "time-switching-device" rotates counter-clockwise. I thought it would do it clockwise, but never took the time to watch what it's doing. Mathematicaly speaking the clockwise direction is in technicians eyes the "wrong" direction, as it is mostly defined as the negative direction.

So, maybe you're the same "blind" than me. Maybe I'm just a bit stupid. ;)


Just ONE program, and counter-clockwise rotation of the "time-switching-device". Starting with the "1 program" fills the dishwasher with water, 2,3, and the following stuff don't do so (except the flushing symbol, but it doesn't wash, it just flushes the dishes.)

Long story short - mine works now like expected - without anything beeing broken.

Regards,
Harald

Hotpoint BCI 450 error message not in the manual


I had this on my machine.This indicate the drain pump is broken. Probably due to a leak from the heating element pipe joint above it. You can easily replace the drain pump yourself. Costs around £30. I got mine from Curry's partmaster in the UK.

Indesit dishwasher DI 450 wont work


I had this problem and you have probably resolved it by now but I thought i would respond so that anyone else searching would get some help!!!

If program 2 and 4 are flashing it means that the filter is clogged and needs to be cleaned. Switch the dishwasher off - take out the filter and clean it and ensure all debris removed from in the filter housing. Pop it back in and switch back on and now the machine should work.

Mine is now running good as new!!

To clear the fault you need to remove the two baskets from the dishwasher.

Slide it out from under the worktop and lean it forward to about 45 degrees.

If it is already full of water, turn on the power whilst pushing the programme button, this sets up a pump out program
