Having problems with your Hotpoint 24 in. HDA3700G Built-in Dishwasher ?

I have a hotpoint HDA 3700 dishwasher that is about four or five years old. I has stopped rinsing thourghly, do you have a suggestion where I should start looking?


Answers :

Make sure your water temperature is hot enough to dissolve the detergent, because the unrinsed residue could be undissolved detergent. If, however, it's food residue, you probably need to check your sprayer arms. The upper arm attaches to a tube in the back of the dishwasher. If the support clamps come loose, the upper spray tube will not be flush with the tube and can't carry water to the sprayer arms. Also the sprayer arms can become clogged with paper remnants, bone fragments, or pieces of peeling. You'll need to remove the sprayer arm and flush it at your sink. If there is a jet that is clogged, tweezers will help remove the residue.
\012Finally, the bottom of the door INSIDE the washer often get covered with gunk. Be sure and gently wash the bottom of the door INSIDE. You can open the door, spray some window cleaner on the bottom and then gently brush away the 'gunk.' Rinse with hot water from a pitcher or your sink sprayer and this can eliminate some of the residue that is showing on your dishes.

My sound conditioned Whirlpool dishwasher is real old. It fills up completely with water. It looks like it will overflow, so I stop it. I thought it always started washing from the start. Do they always fill completely up with water, then start washing. I never noticed. I am afraid the water will overflow. Can it? Last time I ran this, it had a real loud motor. I used to hear the motor running from the start, but now I don't, just water filling up to what looks like overflow if I let it. I baile

Hi, Zanussi dishwasher DE6344, when starting any program the machine start pumping (draining) for a while and then stops, lights start flashing saying that the draining is faulty.

We have a stainless Frigidaire Dishwasher model FD882040FC3 that is 2 years old. When we hit the "normal wash" button and then "start" button, as soon as the water is in and starts to wash, the dishwasher immediately stops and both "Hi-Temp Wash" and Air Dry" buttons begin flashing on and off. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Kind regards, Greg

My TDK795 (not 3, 13yrs old!) starts beeping constantly at the start of any cycle or in the middle (I guess before the rinse) then stops without finishing. There is no water left at that point, so I guess there are no water blockages or any other visible faults. I wonder if it is an electronic fault?

I have a MDB4630AWS1 series dishwasher that is only a couple of weeks old. Suddenly, it now starts the wash cycle but then the Cancel/Drain light turns red, and it drains and stops the cycle. Check for items blocking the sprayers and looked for anything clogging the interior. It does this with all the settings. Seems to work for a few minutes, but then it just drains and stops. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Should I have a plumber check it out?

SMEG STX dishwasher does not complete the wash cycle, stopping after 3 minutes on all cycles displaying error code E1. The machine seems to start with the usual whirring noise but then stops after 3 minutes without pumping in water. The machine is a few years old now but has needed 2 new control panels already although this does not appear to be the problem this time. Any suggestions? Thanks DW

My Kenmore 16533 dishwasher all of sudden started running really loud on the wash cycle. I stopped the cycle, drained the unit, and looked for something obstructing--found nothing. Started it up, and the problem persists. The dishes do come out clean, however. The dishwasher is 6 yrs old. Is this a problem I could fix, or do I need a repairman? Is it worth the expense of a repairman, or is it time for a new unit?

Our moffat quiet 2 dishwasher has recently developed the problem that the dishes are not cleaned properly. It does drain water. We've opened the drain cover to check that. There does not seem to be a problem there. We've also started hearing a buzzing sound that lasts a minute or so between cycles. (Not between every cycle though) It's random. We rinse our dishes thoroughly before running a cycle. This unit is approx. 5 years old. Any suggestions?

I have been negligent in not cleaning out the filters and after the unit more or less stopped, I pulled the two filters finding them full of what looked like soap scum. I cleaned them best I could (but noticed the inner filter still had most of the small holes blocked) Started the unit and it cleaned alright for a couple of days. Last night after running a load all the water did not empty from the bottom of the tub? Any suggestion on what wrong? Bought the unit on 1/19/05. Thanks

Dishwasher just started leaving food residue on dishes after washing. We usually don't rinse beforehand but even when we do this it's still happening. Can I run something thru a cycle to give the washer a good clean out? I've cleaned the filter (nothing there), tried to clean the spinning arm as well as I could and looked for any other food that might be clogging things up. Dishwasher came house - think it's about 6-8 years old. Otherwise works great.
