Hi, I'm Daniel welcome to JustAnswer, Im reviewing your question now and will post back with your reply momentarily

If the lights come on but its not starting at all then its possibley a fault on the door switch.

As Hotpoint do have a problem with the door switches burning out on these.

You need to remove the front plastic control panel but first make sure its unplugged.

Once the panel is release there you will see the door switch.

Inspect this and see if theres signs of burning on there. If so then the door switch will need to be replaced and the wiring repaired.

But if it is burnt out and you dont want to do it yourself then give Hotpoint a bell and they should do the repair for free as its a recall on these dishwashers that there doing. So they should call out and replace it for free for you.

So check that and see what you find if you can. But if you need anymore info just get back to me.
