    My FDW60 is not heating & after a period of time just the "delicates" light flashes, I phoned Hotpoint technical & they said it was an indication of a heater timeout. So I have tried a new heater element unit but still have the same fault, very frustrating at £42 & an hour crawling around under the machine!



    Anyone any ideas on just Delicates light flashing?

If the heater is ok and the wiring is also not burnt out, then the fault will likely be the heater relay on the pcb. (Which means usually replacing the board).

SDW60 - AL08 Error - No Hot Water


First switch off the machine and unplug it at the mains. Leave for 10 minutes then plug back in and re set your machine to the programme you want. It might be that the control panel needs re-booting. They are a bit sensitive and mine had a mind of its own, washed to its own agenda, left water in the bottom etc etc. so that might be the problem with yours. If that doesnt do it, go on the Hotpoint website and find the customer service number. Ask if there is anything you can do to solve the problem yourself before paying for a service call. It could be your heating element has packed up but try the easy fix first. Thats what I did and it cost just the price of a phone call. They were really helpful.

Hotpoint FDW60 not heating the water or drying


open the dishwasher and take the bottom dish rack out, you will see a really thick steel wire which runs around the edge of the bottom of the dishwasher in a loop, that is what heats your water.

check to see if this has snapped

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.
