see this causes, and use the common sense. God bless you When your dishwasher door has a problem, check these:LatchSpringsHingesDoor sealLatchThe
latch on many dishwashers is adjustable. If your door is easy to close
but difficult to latch, adjust the latch to let the door close more
easily. If you can't see any way to adjust the latch, yours may be fixed
in a certain position. Check for other reasons for the latching
the latch has worn out in a way that makes it impossible for you to
close the door properly, you probably need to replace the latch. SpringsYour
dishwasher has two springs that counterbalance the weight of the door.
If either or both of these are broken, the door feels quite heavy and
you need to replace both springs.HingesThe
hinges are important to the door closing properly. If they're bent or
deformed, you probably need to replace them. Once bent, only rarely can
they be straightened well enough.Door sealIf
your dishwasher is new--or if you have just replaced a door seal--the
door may be difficult to latch for a week or two. If the tightness
persists, though, try adjusting the latch, if it's adjustable. If it's
not adjustable, there's probably nothing you can do immediately. But try
running the dishwasher on the highest heat cycle to help the seal
conform to the door. Otherwise, the seal should compress over time.
Possible that this is a mechanical fault. So you might have to remove and clean the lock with a de-greasing spray and close the door few times as you oil it. this might solve the issue.

it can be the 10A fuse located in the back of the machine. but.... storage is kind of a problem with determining what is wrong with it.
Mouse can have chewed the wires, moisture can have rusted or corroded some components.
Check the internal fuse first and please check all wiring fo damage.
The heater is the black element at the bottom of the tub. you can see it when you open the door, there are 2 wires attached to it under the dishwasher along with 2 nuts and some rubber washers to keep it from leaking, It is a simple job to replace. Remove the wires undo the the nuts that hold it to the tub, and there may be some brackets inside the dishwasher that secure it in place. remove the element and replace it. Install in the reverse order you took it apart.
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.
