Question about Hotpoint 24 in. FDW60 Free-standing Dishwasher

1 Answer

Top shelf items dirtier after cleaning

I have been putting glasses and coffee cups on the top shelf and plates and maybe a pan on the bottom shelf with utensils. The pan is turned upside down so no residue will carry onto the top shelf. However after a wash on any cycle there are brown specs of what can best be described as looking just like dirt stuck all over my glasses and coffee cups while the dishes on the bottom shelf are clean. I've tried changing the position of the items on the bottom shelf as well as rinsing the items on the bottom shelf but I keep getting the same brown dirt like specs. Any suggestions as to where this is coming from and how I can prevent not being able to put anything on the top shelf?

    I hae the same issue at the moment and have found that the seal behind the top drawer (top drawer fits into it to allow water to get to the wash arm attached to the under side of the top drawer) has warn through due to poor fitting. May be worth checking that out. I am trying to find somewhere to get this from at the moment.

After some experience with our own fdw60 with the same problem, we now put all pots and pans on the top rack. Putting them on the bottm appears to stop the clean water rinse reaching the top rack. All washes since have been ok.

My dishwasher wont clean on the right side


i had same problem until I learned to place certain items on that side. if I put anything on the bottom that blocks the right side it will not clean. I can only place cups and glasses on the right side. plates on the bottom right side also. now if yours has a top arm and is not cleaning then you might need a tech. but i regret purchasing this machine. i hate doing it this way. maybe yours cleans like mine.

Wy is top rack not washing


top rack is for small plates & cups not pots & pans as they may obstruct the rotating of the sprayer & foul the water from getting to all the items

Make sure the center loading is not obstructing the water jet to the top shelf. Top shelf is only for glasses and saucers , use Jet-Dry .Pre rinse and clean bottom pan strainer from dirt debris.

Glasses and frying pans not clean at end of cycle. Residue on glasses and cups,food particles on frying pans.


it's generally not a good idea to put really greasy items in a dishwasher along with relatively clean items such as glassware and plates and cutlery, as most recent good quality dishwashers come with a soil sensor that ends the wash cycle once the dishes appear clean, and all the grease from your frying pan will cause the soil sensor to take longer to detect clean water.

The dishes do not get clean. Food is left on plates, in bowls, on silverware. Coffee stains are building in cups. Milk leaves a "film" on glasses. When the cycle is finished, it appears that the water...


Hi, it sounds like your dishwasher is plugged up with soap deposits, and/or Calcium deposits.
In an empty dishwasher, put 2 cereal/soup bowls full of vinegar on bottom shelf, and run your dishwasher.
This should clean out all the deposits.
I do this about once every six weeks as our water is very hard.

Glasses come out dirtier than they went in to the dishwasher but other items clean OK


Remove all dishes and throw two cups of vinegar into your machine then run the complete pot scrubber cycle with the hottest water you can.

Always run the hot water into the sink until it is totally hot before you run your dishwasher.
