    I opened mine up and the distribution board on the door has a poor connection to the control circuit, this is due to the PCB type being paper resin rather than glass fiber resin. The copper tracks have cracked away where the connector joins the PCB and have failed and burnt away. I hoped it could be fixed by repairing the cracks with copper wire soldered to the PCB, but no it was dead beyond this connection probably due to the arcing that had removed the tracks.

if you cant hear the motor/compressor running when energised then its likely to be a thermostat fault... but on energising the system if you hear a buzz then a click then its more seriously the main motor... turn off at mains for 5 mins then turn on... this should tell you either way

Hotpoint dishwasher


Switch the machine off and unplug at the mains. Leave for ten minutes, then plug in and switch on. My dishwasher control panel had a mind of its own and did what it wanted including leaving water in the bottom of the machine. The electrics sometimes need re-booting! Hotpoint suggested the solution and it worked for me. Saved me £99 call out charge. Good luck.

The error code is for the 'heater circuit' before getting a new heater check the thermister (on the end of a black wire hanging off the main control board ) as the either dryjoints or comes loose

My Hotpoint FDW60 dishwasher - I select new programme (normal 55 degree wash) and it defaults to 45 degree wash green light flashing and just making a whirring sound but nothing else happens. I have tried pressing the restart button, holding it in until I get the continuous sound and then restarting the programme but the same thing happens

HOTPOINT DISHWASHER FDW60


Hi,

I have just had my dishwasher fixed by Hotpoint, as the heater was working and the dishwasher only stopped with the fast and delicate lights just before the drying process he replaced the main control board. This has solved the problem, I suspected the fault to be the thermistor as the heater seemed to be getting to hot but I had no idea where it was.

It turns out the thermistor is attached to the main control board and hangs down behind the front door that gives just a rough temperature level for the main control board.

As it's soldered directly onto the control board I would suggest replacing the whole control pcb for anyone with this fault unless you can find any spec details for the thermistor.
