Question about Dishwashers

My Hotpoint Aquarius FDL570 dishwasher door suddenly won't close properly. With a hard push my husband cal fully close it and it still works. Does this mean that we need a new closing catch mechanism? If so what's the approx cost?

SOURCE: Dishwasher door won't close

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!

If you live in and area with hard water, it is entirely possible that mineral buildup is blocking the water fill valve. The easiest way to remedy the problem will b e to replace the valve assembly.

I have a hotpoint aquarius dishwasher. although the door shuts it will not lock. Sometimes the door will almost shut but the lock seems to jam. Thanks Jim


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.

Flashing lights on Hotpoint FDL570 Dishwasher


I had an identical problem with the salt and rinse aid lights on the left and the drying and end lights on the right flashing shortly after switching the dishwasher on. When I pulled it out, as this was the only way to look at the pipework, I noticed a big kink in the water hose. Removing this and obviously sorting out the flow problem has resolved the issue.

Hotpoint Aquarius will not start.


I'm old fashioned and am not familiar with the "duff door interlock switch" term. However, you are familiar with the fact that there is a switch that is activated when you close the door. That switch or a post that pushes that switch is not doing it's job.
Could be that the switch is not working properly or the post is broken.

Hotpoint Aquarius


I have a hotpoint aquarius washer/drier. I don't know if this will solve your problem but I know with mine, this almost always happens, the only way I can get it to start is by firmly pushing the door a few times around where the lock is, once I hear a little click inside it will start ok. I presume its because it wont start as it isn't registering that the door is closed, the only time it does not do this is if I literally slam the door really hard. Hope this helps you!

Oversudsing
This can be due to using a laundry or handwash detergent instead of a specific dishwasher detergent instead. It could also be due to excessive amounts of rinse aid in the dispenser or certain food soils that contain a high level of protein such as eggs.
