Question about Hotpoint 24 in. FDW60 Free-standing Dishwasher

3 Answers

Dishwasher stops inbetween rinse and dry

I have an FDW60 dishwasher and the it has started flashing lights 4 (fast)and 6 (delicate) before finishing the wash. The dishes are clean and they look rinsed but it is not doing the drying stage. The trouble shooting manual does not list anything about lights 4 and 6 flashing and Hotpoint want to charge £90 to fix it even though it is under 2 years old. Does anybody have any ideas what this lights sequence means and how to fix it? Thanks

    Hi I have the same problem lights 4 and 6 flash meaning there is an issue with the heating unit. my FDW (poor excuse for a dishwasher) came with 5 years parts warranty, but you have to use them to fix it. this means £95 call out and free parts....or they have offered that I pay £15.90 per month (for 10 months) for a 1 year protection plan (£159)...and all for a dish washer that is only 2 years old, I won't be buying a Hotpoint again........

    when I start the machine on a "normal" wash, it goes to "fast" & "delicate". Dishes come out wet and cold. How do I rectify/reset this problem

Hi
if the problem faults within the first 1 minute the first check the connections on the main module behind the control panel,as you you look at the control panel there is a pink connection to the left,if this looks like it has got hot then theres yopur problem(you will find that the joint on the board has come loose from the soldered joint,module requires replacing.
if this connection looks ok then the heater is open curcuit and will require replacing.

My fdw60 hotpoint dishwasher seems to start then the fast light and the delicate light flash and it stops. Please help.


Have you tried cleaning out the filters in the base of the machine? Also make sure there is no bits in the filter sump. Then give it a clean using a dishwasher cleaner.

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.

FDW60 Fast and Delicate Lights Flash


This is a bad control board that if replaced will only repeat in a short time .My advice is to contact the manufacturer and complain,you have the right as a consumer to do so.
