Question about Hotpoint 24 in. HDA3740G Built-in Dishwasher
My dishwasher, model no. HDA3740G02SA, decided to freak out on me tonight and flood my kitchen floor. I've never had this problem before, but the machine has always made weird noises when washing..sort of like a grinding sound? I've just recently moved into this apartment, the guy who I moved in with moved out...so I don't know if there where any issues with the washer before. I also don't know anything about these machines, but I do know that I now have stagnant water in the bottom of the washer, most of which I scooped out, but I not able to figure out if the thing is clogged or not. Can someone help?

Does water comes into the dishwasher all time, even when it doesn't operated?

In this case,it sound like a water level switch problem (doesn't show the "full" water position). The switch level is usually a diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. I am not familiar with your specific machine, but if you will open the rear panel you will find it easily. Clear tube first from any obstruction, In case it doesn't help, disconnect the wires from the unit (you should disconnect first machine's power cable !!!!!) and measure with a multi-meter on its tugs for continuity and disconnection while you are inhale and blow to its tube.
In case it doesn't react, you should replace it.
Good luck !
Did you use a detergent not intended for automatic dishwashers, i.e. dawn liquid etc.? If you do, it will over-suds on you and the suds will pour out of the machine in the middle of the wash cycle.
I know, because it just happened to us...! My wife bought some "eco-friendly" soap and the genius at the store said it was safe for automatic washers...but it is not (clearly states so on the bottle, and we didn't notice that until after the kitchen floor was half covered in bubbles...)
Hope this helps someone, its an easy thing to rule out/fix at the very least...

dishwasher makes noise, and water was left in the bottom. checked to see if food was blocking . none. bailed the water out.
