Question about Hotpoint 24 in. DF55 Free-standing Dishwasher

1 Answer

Hotpoint DF53 will not start.

I have purchased a fairly new DF53, which I think is almost the same as the 55.
All connections are good, water, electric and drain, but when turned on, the light comes on but no water enters.
When water is added manually, it just tries to wash with what is in the machine; will not progress, fill, heat or empty.
The running light is on all the time and is not affected by the on-off switch.
Help.
Richard.

    I have a D53 dish washer sparingly and rarely used. Now the programme does not function properly. When I turn on the machine it immediately starts spray function before it gets water. And it keeps on 'spraying' without any other functions. I believe the timer got stuck in the spray cycle. In fact No filling water, no draining, no hot air blow.....(If I fill water manually then it sprays OK, but no other functions)



    Anybody can suggest any remedy against this problem. Note that I have checked all the connections, outlets for blocks etc. Everything is OK

When you say fairly new , i assume its been used before , so you probably dont have warranty . You could have a programme problem , in which case its cheaper to buy a new one or check the solenoid at the water entry point to the machine , this has to activate and stop in order for the machine to proceed through the programme.

After fitting a new time to a hotpoint CDT00


Sometimes even one connection can make the circuit non functionable and so it can be due to a wrong connection. I request that you check once again and logically check the lines to go in order to start the cycle, INLET, cut off from the water level sensor, Start motor, stop and drain, spin and rinse, fill water and then for final dry and drain pump.
Check for all leads to be correct, check if the stepper motor works in circuit to move forward after the main power is switched.

Can i plumb hotpoint wma 50 with just cold water supply, if so what do i need to do with hot fill point


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
In a word- YES!
You will need to purchase, from a hardware (?) store, a 'Y' adapter. Upside down the single end screws into the cold water supply and the hot and cold washer pipes screw into the double end. The washer is fooled into thinking it has hot and cold! When it expects hot, it opens its hot valve but instead gets the cold water and has to heat it up. It will therefore take longer for the machine to do the washing. When it wants cold for rinses, it opens its cold valve and gets the same water! Simple ;-0)
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,
John C

Excessive compressor shut down noise on our side by side Hotpoint refrigerator freezer-getting worse Is there a solution short of purchasing a new appliance


This is usually a sign that the compressor motor inside the compressor housing has broken loose from its mounts. It will probably fair soon and require replacement. The compressor is a sealed unit and can't br repaired. Use the refrigerator until it quits, but keep an eye on it.

Hotpoint dishwasher DF51, no water getting through


possible clog in screen on inlet side of water valve. This is a blue plastic assembly that the water line connects to. Remove the water line from machine look at screen inside water valve to see if it is clogged. If not, you need to check to see if there is power being delivered to water silenoid by dishwasher ( use an electric meter ) during the fill/rinse cycle the dishwasher will send a current to the silenoid toi activate it during those two cycles If silenoid does not open water will not fill dishwasher. Silenoid is bad a new one can be purchased at low cost and is easy to install. Purchase it at a appliance parts warehouse.

Maytag Neptune Part Change?


I haven’t had to change the water inlet valve but is this the valve assembly you purchased?
http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-fav6800aww-%3d%3dc292i1032809&PartID=1032809
It looks like they throw in an install instruction sheet at this parts supplier site. If you have this do they speak to adapting the wiring harness to the H/C valve assembly. I’m sure you are not lucky enough to have male spade connections on you replacement inlet valve. If they are spade lugs this would be a piece of cake to interface too. Looks like a molded connector on the inlet valve to terminate the 120VAC power to the valve assembly.
I called the supplier above and if your machine starts with serial number 18 or above you need to purchase an upper LED wiring harness p/n 1185286 $55 to interface to the replacement H/C valve you purchased. Or you can purchase p/n 1404313 wiring info for $7.50 for the DIY’er. I know this is a bit frustrating. I don’t have the valve in hand so I can’t offer a quick solution. I’m willing to bet the wiring harness they are selling for $55 is nothing more than a cable with proper female/male mating connector transitions to interface to the factory 120VAC connections to the inlet valve. If my water inlet valve fails I would be in the same boat as you but I would make up an interface cable before spending $55. Maybe a more knowledgeable forum member can offer a better solution. Good luck to you.
