Question about Hotpoint 24 in. FDW60 Free-standing Dishwasher

1 Answer

My hotpoint aquarius dishwasher FDW20P dishwasher is only washing

In cold water no matter what cycle you chose. The dishwasher is only 14 months old and is used only once a day sometimes every second day.
We first came about this when the dishes weren:t really clean and were left with a powder residue on dishes. We thought it needed cleaned and bought a dishwasher cleaner for a high temp to melt the wax lid. After trying twice the wax hadnt melted and no cleaner therefore was released from bottle.
Does this machine require a new heating element or is it something more serious.
Thank you for you time.

My hotpoint aqarius dc26 dishwasher has stopped


this may be caused by a leak your dishwasher as a build in anti flood switch which stops water from entering when it leaks into the base of dishwasher . You may be able to check this for yourself by unplugging your dishwasher and slowly pulling it out and lean it back if water runs on to your floor you have had a leak .if at this point you turn it back on it might start to fill again .if it does start to fill turn it off again . it will need further examination to see why it leaking .if you feel you can't do this call your local engineer .

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 fdw20p dishwasher


You need the control panel to reset before anything else can happen. To do this TURN OFF THE PLUG SOCKET FIRST AND UNPLUG. Then you need to drain ALL the water from the machine. Turn off the water supply feed and place the wastage pipe as low to the floor as poss ( 1-2" off floor). Water will gush out so use a large shallow tray and keep emptying the tray. Tilt the dishwasher over slightly to make sure all the water is out.
This will allow the control panel to reset itself which wouldn't normally happen if the base of the dishwasher was holding even a small amount of water.
Re connect the water, plug back in , select the RESET setting on the dial and close the door and switch on.
Leave for about 20 seconds and then turn off.
Rotate the selector switch to "A" Intensive wash and switch
I found this on another site and it really did work for me
