Replacing Dishwasher Filters - Hotpoint

The filters in your dishwasher play an essential role in the performance it is able to provide you. It is important to check your filters on a regular basis, to ensure that they are free from any food deposits or any sign of damage.

If you need to replace the filters on your dishwasher, you will be pleased to know that you have reached the right website to help you!

This video shows an example on how to remove or replace the part on a typical machine, some models may be different but the procedure should be similar.

What You Will Need:

Filter

Screwdriver

Step 1 - Safety Advice

Safety First! Please ensure that you have disconnected the appliance from the mains before starting any repair.

Step 2 - Checking The Filter

The filter on this particular Hotpoint model consists of a fine mesh outer filter, a stainless steel filter, and the two parts that come as a single filter kit.

You need to take the filter out from the dishwasher and check for any food particles, and also ensure that it is free from any signs of damage. If the filter is damaged in any way, it would need to be replaced.

If you do not have a correctly working filter, it could lead to food particles going down to the outlet pump - causing damage to the pump, which would then be a much more expensive repair it it was to be damaged.
