Question about Hotpoint 24 in. FDW60 Free-standing Dishwasher

1 Answer

It's Leaking Water!

I have a FDW60 Hotpoint Dishwasher in Polar White which is nearly 3 years old. It has normally performed well though it does have a tendency to lose water from beneath the door should you open it mid-cycle. However it now seems to leak water (from beneath the door) when it's midway through the Rinse cycle of the Eco programme - usually after it's heated the water. I put this down to using 5in1 tablets and not seperate detergents etc, but even after adding Rinse Aid it's still leaking water - does anyone have any idea's? thanks guys n girls!

Most common reason is that the lower spray arm splits on the seem and sprays water under the door, to proove if it is this remove lower spray arm and run through program if no leak fit new arm. Regards Advisor

Try the corrugated hose that the water is pumped out through. It may have a small hole which leaks and creates the trip. It's happened to me.

Leaking FDW60


Had a similar problem when I removed the lower spray arm for replacement (see http://www.fixya.com/support/t234402-fdw60_dishwasher ) and didn't put the centre retaining nut back. It might be worth checking the lower arm is screwed in tightly as the retaining nut prevents water escaping.

Problem with hotpoint aquarius fdw60 diswasher


My mother has a neighbour who has a new hotpoint dishwasher which caught fire inside (Plastic on door front melted!).

Please contact Hotpoint - if yours is new, check to see if they can replace immediately otherwise its worth booking the engineer to sort £90 - free parts on machines less than 5 years old.

I've got a hotpoint dishwasher too with the same problem.. I'm going to have a crack at opening it up this evening to see if I can find the fault. It looks like corrosion on some of the wires can be a common cause for this. Will report back. Mark.
