Having problems with your Hotpoint Dishwashers ?

My hotpoint dishwasher after selecting programme will not start and the eco light keeps flashing


Answers :

The eco light flashes when there has been a leak detected. Water fills up a tray in the bottom of the machine and turns on a float switch; this turns off everything apart from the drain pump. Commonly a machine will leak when the bottom spray arm comes loose - bad design I say.

You may need to pull the machine out and tip it over to get the water out of the tray, then check the spray arm is tight before using the machine.

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?
