Hotpoint Dishwasher Problem

    My daughter has a Hotpoint DC27 Dishwasher which is only 3 months old.
    It now refuses to start, flashing the prewash light. We have checked
    all the filters and hoses etc. and can find nothing wrong.

    We have called the Hotpoint Service people but can't arrange a visit
    until about 2 weeks time. Does anyone know what fault this flashing
    light indicates? Maybe it is something simple we have overlooked?

    Thanks

    And this fault is showing no matter which wash cycle the machine is set to ?
    It sounds as though the pump is refusing to run when it should.

    At three months old, take it back to the shop and get a new one. It is your
    right.

    Three months + about 1 week actually. I'll tackle the shop tomorrow.

    Thanks for that.

    Two things in geenarl spring to mind. It isn't empty cos the drain is
    blocked, or whatever makes it think the door is closed has fallen off...

    Just make sure the drain hose on the back is clear. You can do this by
    blowing down it and listening for the water inside to bubble as you blow.
