Re: I have a problem with my hotpoint fdw60 dishwasher....
I think you can fix this yourself if you can see the latch itself. There should be some screws at or near the latch that can be removed. this would allow you to physically get to the latch and check it out. It may be that the latch is broken or loose OR it may be where the latches "catches" that could be the problem also. You are probably looking at an hour's work.

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.
A99 is a communication error. Try unplugging your dishwasher for 10 minutes and then try it again. If you still get an A 99 code that suggests a problem in the control board in the dishwasher. In this instance I recommend an engineer as it can be extremely difficult to fault find this error.
If the door switchmechanism is still in place inside the door, you should be able to see it when you open the door ,it is visible on the inside if the door top centre if it is intact then it could be that the actuator bracket has moved, this is located under the top panel front centre and is held in position by an hexagonal nut. the top is secured at the back of the machine by 2 screws one on the left and one on the right remove the two screws slide the top to the rear approx 1/2 inch lift off the top you can now access the door catch bracket, close the door and adjust the bracket forward so that it latches securely but don't position it to far forward or it could bottom on the back of the door mechanism, if everthing is in place unit should be fixed, reposition top onto the two front lugs and slide top gently forward replace the two screwws at the back and you should be in business
OUrs did the same, it was a tiny spring that needed replacing. We just turned off at mains, unscrewed front and took out the unit. Took broken spring out and found one at our local DIY shop. fitted and put back in. ALOT cheaper than replacing the unit!
