Question about Dishwashers
I have a hotpoint dishwasher (HDA460-03AD). When I turn the dial to start the cleaning process I can hear the motor run but the water is not coming out of the machine.
I have checked the main water supply line and there is water going thru the main valve into the machine.
Any thoughts on how to diagnose the problem?
SOURCE: dishwasher not working
Nothing by the sound of it. The humming may mean the main pump is stuck. If you are able, remove the pump & turn the impellor by hand (or screwdriver) just to make sure its free moving. Put it back into machine & see what you get. Could also mean that the capacitor on the main pump (if it is a capacitor start motor) has failed.

You have a problem which will need some knowledge of how the machine works and some test meter.There may be a problem with the motor.It may not beworking,jammed or dead -burnt out.The motor does the work after the water-cold,hot or medium-has entered.
The timer-you say works- will connect power to the motor to do its job,power to solonoid for the valves to open at the right time to let water in and out-pushed out by the motor.Remove the water with a cup and rags from the machine and then see if the motor turns by hand.This may mean you have to get under the machine.ALL WAYS REMOVE THE POWER CORD AT THE WALL POWER OUTLET--Jay

sounds like there may be something caught in the drain pump itself.
can you provide me with the complete model # on your dishwasher please?

Hi, you need to test voltage to the water inlet valve. If you are getting voltage (120V) replace the valve. If you are not getting voltage check the water level switch located in the front corner of the tub.
If I can assist you any further with parts or part #'s, please let me know.

if the water is not draining at all in any of the cycle it is probably the discharged line at the bottom of the pump has become blocked. there is an access panel at the bottom of the dishwasher which will allow you access the line. take the line off of the fitting , use a set of vise grips to remove the fitting from the base of the pump.You will probably find corn or rice lodged in the diaphragm within the fitting, remove debris and reinsert the fitting and hose. Hopefully this is helpful to you.
