Hotpoint dishwasher error codes are a warning that your appliance is malfunctioning. Hotpoint dishwasher error codes flashing with the following numbers point to issues with different components. The four LED lights will also be flashing in a specific order.

F02 with flashing light 2 – indicating a defective water fill solenoid valve that will need to be checked and tested.
F03 with flashing lights 1 and 2 – pointing to an issue with the water drainage system. This could be due to a blocked drain or drainpipe. Or other plumbing issues.
