If you have a Hotpoint dishwasher, you are probably happy with its performance most of the time. Like other dishwashers, it can beep from time …
If your dishwasher door won’t close, make sure there is nothing inside the dishwasher obstructing the door. Remove or adjust any utensils or dishes that are too large or that might be obstructing the door. Make sure both the top and bottom loading racks are correctly aligned.
In general, the dishwasher door will not open if the door strike is loose or bent. It is rare for the door strike to become defective but with repeated use, the strike can become bent or loose. A loose or misaligned door strike will prevent the dishwasher door latch from releasing.
Having a dishwasher can be great—you don’t have to get your hands wet just to clean the day’s dirty dishes and there are no family …
To reset your Hotpoint dishwasher, the easiest method is to press the start/reset button. This will alert your dishwasher to stop its cycle and begin to drain. Let it sit for at least two minutes before you try and run a cycle again. If that solution doesn’t work, you may need to perform a manual reset. To do this is simple. Disconnect your Hotpoint dishwasher from all power sources for at least 60 seconds. Once you restore power, you should see that the alerts are no longer flashing and that your dishwasher is working again.
If your Hotpoint dishwasher is having problems turning on and off, be sure the door is latched completely and that there is no damage to the latch, confirm power is being supplied to the unit through a working outlet, and reset the device and drain it of all water.
Common problems with Hotpoint dishwashers will cause the lights to flash or blink. You may have a faulty circulation pump or burnt-out motor. Heating elements and the heating element assemblies also cause problems that result in the lights flashing, as does a faulty door latch.
Overall, there can be a blockage, the drain pump can have failed, or the drainage hose can be installed incorrectly or have a kink. These can cause the seals to not close completely and allow water back in after it has been removed. Or, the water can’t get through a blockage.
