Hotpoint Dishwasher will not drain, the wash cycle seems to be working correctly,(water goes in the unit),& I can hear the water spraying inside, but when it comes time to drain, unit will not pump out the water. The solenoid arm is working up,& down,I took the impeller assembly apart, & didn't notice any wear patterns.Would an impeller repair kit possibly resolve the problem?
*I have a clear piece of hose spliced into the drain hose,& when the unit is trying to drain, I can see the water fluctuate back, & forth approximately 1/4"
Answer Hello Danny. No, if the impeller did not look bad, and the solenoid is working, replace the motor assembly on the unit.
The unit will not drain.
Answer Hello Et,
This can be a clogged screen or hose, a bad pump assembly (AP3997575), or a failed drain solenoid (AP3994907). If a new garbage disposal has been recently installed, the installer could have forgotten to punch out the knock out plug in the disposer. The quickest way to determine if the drain solenoid is at fault is to remove the kick panel and manually move the lever by the black coil and see if this allows the water to drain. If so, the coil on the solenoid has failed. If not and no clogs are present, the pump assembly will most likely require replacement.
Why does the dishwasher make a loud rumbling noise when running in any mode? This noise louder than when we first bought it. It works fine just makes the loud noise. I tried cleaning the dishwasher with name brand dishwasher cleaner fluid. Still makes the loud noise. Thank you. Ed
Answer Hello Ed,
Most of the time when this style dishwasher works fine but makes a loud noise the issue isn't the unit at all, but the installation. A couple of things you might try to quieten the unit is placing a rubber floor mat under the unit and, if possible, putting the rubber floor mat under the feet to prevent vibrations from being transferred to the floor. The same material works well when placed between the unit and the cabinets, as long as you make sure they do not interfere with the door hinges and springs. If the unit is connected to a copper water line, the noise is also reduced by adding a flexible water line between the copper line and the water valve. Many times, simply leveling the unit will reduce the noise.
