Hotpoint dishwash not heating the water but it not the eliment


Check and see if during the heating cycle there is voltage to the element. If not, you will need to replace the control board/module. from serial number 41011 part no is c00143209, to serial no 41011 part no is c00143207

FDW60 Fast40 and Delicate50 flash


heating circuit open is the fault code.
checks to be carried out to make sure of diagnosis

Check the circuit of the heating element (26 ohms).
Check for an open circuit heater cut-out.
Check pressure switch open circuit (connections 11-14).
Check wiring and connections between module card, pressure switch and heater.
If all above is OK, replace module card.

Heater Replacement
1.Remove top cover as in.
2.Remove the left hand side panel.
3.Using suitable floor protection carefully lay dishwasher on right hand side; this may result in
water spillage from the air break unit.
4.Remove the base panel.
5.Disconnect the wiring.
6.Slacken the clips securing the hoses.
7.Replace in reverse order (using jubilee clips not existing)

Hotpoint aquarius fdw60 tripping problem


I would agree with you. Everything you say here certainly points to a faulty heating element. The original is fitted with two factory fitted clips so you may need to go to your local garage and get two jubilee clips as they don't usually come with the new element.

AQUARIUS FDW60. THA FAST AND DELICATE LIGHTS KEEP FLASHING.


I had the same problem with my Hotpoint FDW60 and read all the online reviews about how baddly made the FDW60 is and after taking it apart I totally agree.

As the warning lights were indicating a faulty heating element I checked it to find that it was not working. I bought a replacement for £43 at my local electrical store (I think they then ordered it online). Taking the bottom off is easy but once off, it is very difficult to actually get to the element, but it can be done. I had to buy new hose clips to fasten the rubber pipe each side too. It has been on twice today and so far so good.

I have read some message boards and have seen that some people have had to replace the element a number of times, so I will wait and see what happens.

Be aware the heating element is not your usual heating element, it looks more like a insulated metal tube: http://www.buyspares.co.uk/cgi-bin/search.pl?query=heating+element+fdw60

Good luck

Hotpoint aquarius dwf30 dishwasher


you can plumb into hot but there are some snags
first hot water pressure is often a lot lower than cold so the machine may take a long time to fill
second if the water is too hot it will destroy the resin of the water softener and you will see brown marks on the crockery.
third it a bit uneconomical as you will use a lot of hot water

Hotpoint fdw60 fast and delicate lights flashing


Heater elements on FDW 60 do not last long at all, I am on my 3rd. You are better of buying a heating element and a decent limescale filter, otherwise it will keep happening. The flow through element builds up limescale, causing the element/thermostat to over heat.

Its a shame as they are quite a good dishwasher. Hotpoint 5 year parts warranty a waste of time. £90 call out charge.

The last one lasted 3 moths before delciates & fast light started flashing.

You can get the elements online for £40
