Having problems with your Hotpoint 23 in. BFI62 Built-in Dishwasher ?

The program light goes off and the BF162 doesn't start...

\015 Hi, we've been given a BF162 but don't have a manual. We tested it once and it worked fine, but now when we try and work it it won't start.If the door is open the saucepan with one line under it program is lit, if you push the "P" button there is a long beep for as long as you keep the button depressed, but the dishwasher doesn't cycle through the programs, it stays on the same one. If you close the door, the light goes out but the dishwasher doesn't start. We tried unplugging it, and looking under the black plastic covers under the front door but it was dry. Thanks in advance for any ideas?\015

Answers :

When you keep the button pressed for a few seconds the lights go off, this resets the dishwasher. Then press the p button again to the program you want 1st light is heavy soil 2nd light is normal soil, 3rd light is eco wash, 4th light is rinse. At the end of the cycle the program light you have selected will flash.

My Baumatic BDW15 won't start - you push the power button, all the lights come on for second, it beeps and then goes dead. You can't program it or anything.rnThis started yesterday when we came to empty it, it was full of water and the detergent tablet holder hadn't opened. I've tried turning it off and on again at the wall but it makes no difference - any ideas?

When starting my Bauknecht GSFP 5586 dishwasher the program is set for rinsing and the start light flashes two blinks, then again two blink etc. I cannot get the program to change. When I hold the Start button for 2 seconds, the progress light flashes at END for a moment then reverts back to the double blink sequence. I have checked the filter and it is well seated and clean. What can I do to start the program selection again?


Ok, so I had the exact same problem with the exact same model. NOT 7 blinks and to buttons that you do not have.\012I will tell you what I did as I do not know what (if any) of what I did fixed it (it could be luck but I do not think so).\012 ... Dishwashers

My Miele G641 displays the Salt PC light even after filling it with salt. I have to cycle the main power switch 3 or 4 times before the Start light will come on. Then when I press the Start button it momentarily pumps out water and then stops. Sometimes the Start light stays on and I can get it to give the pump another brief spurt, but often the Salt/PC light comes on again and the Start light goes out. I then have to re-set the power switch. How do I tell if the logic board is fried?


Hi.This is not a PC, when logic board is fried the machine does not start at all rather than doing weird thing.The logic board is not fried, in the worst case the salt sensor is jammed. Try first pouring a couple of litres of hot wa ... Miele 24 in. Novotronic G641 Plus Built-In Dishwasher

On my whirlpool ADP962 dishwasher the start light is flashing but nothing is working. I can change the programme type (ie rinse, wash etc) but the programme will not start. I can't select either half load or a time delay. By holding the start button it will start the pump but when this stops it goes back to a flashing start light. The programme progress lights are not lit. What is this telling me and how can I reset it?

My dishwasher, a Whirlpool ADP 931, has stopped working. Possibly because the door was opened during operation, right after it was started. There is some kind of error condition indicated through a blinking Start light, but I don't know how to analyze this. This is a quite simple model with very few buttons to press. When I turn the program knob right to start it, the only thing that happens is that the green Start lights begins to blink continuously. There is also another green light
