Hotpoint Dishwasher Fault Codes

Like other fault codes these written for dishwasher repairers and not for the general public by Indesit Group and they assume a certain level of competence on the part of the user in diagnostic routines. We may have added some notes to try to assist you in determining the nature of the fault you have but, you will still need to investigate each failure on its own merits. For more help and advice on fault finding on a dishwasher please refer to our basic fault finding guide from this link before you begin.

Please check that any dishwasher spares recommended are suitable for use on your particular model and production code or serial number. If you are unsure about the suitability of any spare part please ask to ensure that you get the correct spares for your washing machine. Please, don't guess or assume as spares can be altered on a production run with the same model number having several different alternative components used.

Hotpoint Dishwasher Reset Procedure

It is usually necessary to 'reset' the machine after a fault code has been displayed.  

To reset please follow the steps below.

  • Switch dishwasher off
  • Rotate the selector switch to STOP/CHANGE and switch on
  • After a few seconds the LED’S will go out enabling a new programme to be selected

If an error still exists or persists after this has been carried out then you will have to investigate the fault or call a dishwasher engineer.

Fault Code Lights Legend

This is our very simple legend to show the state of the lights, lamps or LED's as they are unlit, flashing or lit continuously.
