The rinse aid and eco wash lights are flashing on my Hotpoint

This answer was rated:

The 'rinse aid' and 'eco wash' lights are flashing on my Hotpoint DWT10 dishwasher. What does this mean and how do I fix the problem?


If you number the programme lights with 1 on the left, which numbers are flashing?



Customer: replied 7 years ago.
It was 1 and 4 however I have added rinse aid and now it is just number 4 which is flashing.


Don't include the rinse aid and salt lights.

Only the programme lights.



Customer: replied 7 years ago.
Then it is the light number 3 from left.


This is listed as the anti flood device activated.

Is the drain pump running all the time?


Unplug the appliance and check the base (under the tub) of the appliance for water.

Remove the water by either tipping the machine rearward a little or by using a sponge through the inspection panel below the door.


Hope this helps
