Thread: Please Help! Hotpoint BF1620 Dishwasher

    Default Please Help! Hotpoint BF1620 Dishwasher

    Ladies and Gents, please help! I have a Hotpoint BF1620 dishwasher which I have had for about 5 years and it has been troublefree....until now. The fault I believe is known as a timeout draining fault. If you look at the panel lights from above from left to right, the two left lights flash together. The dishwasher does run for about 10 mins, but then I guess it comes to the part of the cycle where the machine tries to drain. But it doesn't and then stops, with the 2 lights flashing. I have had it out, bottom off (so to speak!), dismantled it looking for blockages, but can't find anything. Have bench tested the pump which purrs like a ***** cat. Any ideas what I can try next?? Cheers.

    Hi,

    Hotpoint BF1620
    I got no where with this #...is this a North American appliance?

    Someone has checked the drain all the way from the d/w to the house drain?

    Yes; the dishwasher uses the same outlet as the washing machine which is all OK and draining fine. Is it the electronics? The programmes? Cheers.

    Apologies, forgot to answer your original query Jeff; no, I think this is a UK appliance. Well, I certainly bought it in the UK. The model number is BF1620 with an additional (i guess) serial number of 36711524. The originakl instructions I have still got and they were printed in Peterborough. Cheers, Neil.

    Here as far as I know they can't be combined.
    D/w would have it's own drain hose to the house plumbing and the a/w would have it's own drain hose to the house plumbing.

    Makes sense as the model# will not come up for me an any Canadian or USA searches.
    Some places that may be able to help with UK style appliances...
