Question about Hotpoint 24 in. FDW60 Free-standing Dishwasher
I have had my Hotpoint dishwasher for 18 months and only use a couple of times a week. Yesterday, in mid cycle water started pouring out of the bottom of the dishwasher (front, right side). I pulled out the dishwasher thinking that a hose may be disconnected but was mystified to discover that the back of the machine was bone dry!! When the cycle is stopped the water also stops leaving the machine although the actual machine is still full of water. Any help will be much appreciated

To fix your draining problem you need to check the air gap(if you have one) , check if there is voltage going to your drain pump during the draining cycle. If there is voltage coming to your water pump and the dishwasher is still not draining then the problem could be a clogged drain hose, a clogged air gap or a bad drain pump. if there is no voltage detedcted on the drain pump during the drain cycle, then it could be a water level-switch/solonioed , wiring, or a control board problem.

I had the same problem with my machine - ie lots of water coming out front about two thirds of the way through the cycle - engineer (local and very reliable) knew as soon as he came in that I had started bying Powerball 5 dishwasher tablets - they produce too much foam (try opening the door during the cycle and see the amount of foam) and it therefore comes out of the overflow parts on the door. I tried Magnum 5 and got the same problem. Now I stick to either Asda's own basic (not the 5) or I buy the Magnum ones and cut them in half. Has never leaked since!

It's seems that the water come out through door's gasket. Your problem is with a blockage drain line (probably filter) or with a defective pump that doesn't drain the water out the machine. Good luck !!

Have exactly the same problem with my Hotpoint of about the same age. Seems to be all along the front and actually started just minutes into the cycle. Definitely not a door seal problem, have raised the legs (before reading all this) and only temporarily helped. Now have a dishwasher full of water that I cannot move!! HELP!!
my hotpoint stopped mid cycle and now wont drain. the rinse and prewash buttons are flashing green. What can I do?
i have a maytag dishwasher. Same problem. I use my dishwasher once a week. Water drains out ok - but also leaks from front right side
Stopped dishwasher mid cycle and now water will not pump out
