Hotpoint dishwasher bf1620 - 1st light indicator (heavy soil)flashing. information from hotpoint and manual useless


Answers :

I have had this problem twice now and the problem is water in the drip tray. The guys at Hotpoint eventually told me what the light meant as he wanted me to have an engineer and the manual does not say.!!

\015\012So if your up to it uplug from the mains and turn water off to the unit, pull the dishwasher out and lay it on its side (first putting down towels as the water will spill out depending where it was in the cycle when it stopped).
\015\012
\015\012At the bottom of the dishwasher along both long sides there are 6 screws ( 3 each side) remove these easy peezy. Gently remove the tray/plate as it has connections there. You will probably notice the water on the tray or in the gubbins (nice word). Get a dry towel and dry what you can not forgetting the tray itself. Then and this is the important bit, use a hairdryer on all the gubbins and the metal insides DONT FORGET TO DO THE TRAY ITSELF. Take at least 20 mins to do this getting everything completly dry.
\015\012Then put together again, stand it up gently and try it.
\015\012
\015\012You may or may not notice the water in the drip tray or on the gubbins, it does not take much for it to stop working.

\015\012This has worked twice for me. Also with the help of the internet and costing me £5 I was able to remove broken glass from the drain pump. I have saved myself a fortune.
\015\012
\015\012This is from a woman who knows NOTHING about this sort of thing so if I can fix it anyone can.

Hello!

I found out from hotpoint that the first flashing indicator means that the 'float switch' has been activated meaning that the base tray 'may' be leaking. I don't know whether this is a tactic to get their repair man out to fix it.

I was wondering whether there is a way to reset the switch and try re-running a programme as my base tray doesn't seem to be leaking.

I hope this helps a bit

Hello My Haier DWI 5212P (also known as Proline DWI 5212P) dishwasher is not working. The indicator panel has 3 nights flashing so I realise these are warnings, but do not know what they are telling me. In order from left to right the 1st, 2nd and 4th LED's are flashing. Those are the ones that I would normally press for Heavy Duty, Normal Wash and Glassware. Any advice you can offer? Thanks in advance. Cheers Davie

I have a SMEG dishwasher. Can't find the model number on dishwasher or manual. Had two flashing lights and referred to manual - indicates a blocked filter. Cleaned that out, but now when I try to put it on "light" cycle (indicated by wineglass symbol), that light flashes (but no others as would indicate a problem).. All the other cycles work fine. Any ideas? Thank you!

The manual says that this may indicate "a technical fault" and we should contact customer service. Unfortunately, they are closed for a three-day weekend. Any suggestions?
