Hotpoint Dishwasher Repair

Appliance:
Hotpoint Dishwasher

Problem:
So loud when it runs that it is hard to hear the television in the next room. Makes a loud, humming sound and when on, the dishwasher runs for a long time, more than an hour.

Solution:
A lot depends on what options you have selected on your dishwasher and how it's wired. If you have chosen a heated dry and a heated rinse cycle, the unit will run until the temperature in the tank runs to one hundred and fifty or more degrees.

All these things factor into how long it takes, because most of the time the water inside the heated rinse heats about one and a half degrees per every two or three minutes. So, it can take a half hour to heat the water up from the incoming one hundred and twenty five or so degree water.

Now, to address the noise problem remove the lower panel and listen for the noise. Please be very careful because there are some live wires located in that area.

You will find that the pump and motor assembly has a fan blade on it that cools the fan motor. It is likely, that the fan blade is either bent and/or broken off the shaft and might be free-wheeling off the motor shaft. The only thing you can do to solve your Hotpoint dishwasher repair issue is replace the motor pump assembly.
