My Hotpoint appliance will not fill

If your Hotpoint appliance will not fill then please ensure that your water taps at the back of the Hotpoint appliance are fully turned on and that the pipes are not kinked or squashed.

In order for a Hotpoint appliance to fill it must first drain. See “my Hotpoint appliance will not empty” below for advice on drainage plumbing.

If you need further assistance please call Hotpoint customer service on 0344 822 4224

My Hotpoint appliance will not empty

We recommend that you ensure that the waste hose has been correctly installed. If your Hotpoint appliance empties into an under sink waste system please ensure that the blanked end of the waste spigot has been removed. Ensure the filter in the base of the dishwasher is clean and free from any blockages.

Check that the waste hose has not become trapped or kinked as this could also result in a failure to empty the waste water out of your Hotpoint appliance.

If you need further assistance please call Hotpoint customer service on 0344 822 4224

My cutlery is becoming brown/rusty

Cast iron pots and pans can start to rust where they’re cleaned in a dishwasher.

This can result in the rust spreading onto other items such as your cutlery or the tub of your dishwasher. We recommend you avoid washing cast iron pots and pans in your dishwasher.

If you need further assistance please call Hotpoint customer service on 0344 822 4224

Cloudy/White marks are being left on my dishes/glassware

If you are finding at the end of a wash cycle that your dishes and glasses are appearing cloudy then this could be a possible calcium deposit. We also recommend use of our [part:dishwasherSalt] dishwasher salt, which improves washing performance and protects your dishwasher. Unique table form is easier to dose than ordinary dishwasher powder.
