We have a Hotpoint LFT114 Intrigrated dishwasher & it seems to be stuck mid cycle.

Customer Question

Hi, we have a Hotpoint LFT114 Intrigrated dishwasher & it seems to be stuck mid cycle. The power & intensive wash lights are flashing. If you open the door the to outlet pump is constantly going & if you pour water in it drains away. Is there a reset? As turning off at the mains doesn't reset it?
Thanks

Hi What this error code means is water has leaked into the base and has activated the flood switch in there. To reset this you need to pull the oven out from under the unit and then tip it 45 degs backwards as this will allow the water to drain out from the bottom so you may need a towel for that part. Then once the water is out the flood switch will reset itself and clear the fault. Then refit it and fingers crossed that sorts it from there. But if it happens again then theres a leak in there which you need to find and fix to cure this. So try that and once the water is out from the base it will allow you to use it as normal from there. But if you need anymore info just get back to me. Regards
