3 Methods to Fix Hotpoint Dishwasher Not Filling with Water Issue

Is your Hotpoint dishwasher not filling with water? Luckily, there are several easy fixes that you can implement to rectify this problem.

Hotpoint Dishwasher Not Filling with Water

When your Hotpoint dishwasher doesn’t fill with water, inspect the water supply line and clean it with vinegar and baking soda solution. Also, check the water inlet valve, and float switch.

Don’t worry. I will expand on the above solutions in more detail below. However, before you proceed, here is some word of caution:

If your dishwasher is under warranty, the easiest solution would be to contact Hotpoint support and ask for advice. Unfortunately, opening your dishwasher will void its warranty in most cases, so leave it as a last option.

Check Water Supply

With the passage of time, calcium and other salts build up in the water supply pipe, which end up clogging the supply.

Remove it from your dishwasher and circulate pressurized water through it to remove any debris from it.

I’d also recommend pouring baking soda and vinegar solution through it and passing hot water.

Water Inlet Valve

Your Hotpoint dishwasher won’t fill with water if its water inlet valve is jammed due to dust and debris. Make sure that the water inlet valve is clean.

If it is clean and your dishwasher is still not getting water, you may need to replace the valve. Again, I’d advise seeking expert services to replace your Hotpoint dishwasher inlet valve.

Check Float Switch

The purpose of the float switch is to automatically shut off the water inlet valve when it is overfilling.

However, if the float switch is defective, it will prevent your Hotpoint dishwasher from getting water.

Here’s how to locate and test your dishwasher float switch:


When your Hotpoint dishwasher is not filling with water, try the following troubleshooting methods to fix it:

  • Check and clean the water supply line
  • Inspect and clean the water inlet valve
  • Check and test the float switch
