Re: I have a Hotpoint FDW70 dishwasher

Disconect POWER at breaker or fuse panel which should be on a seperate braker. if not find the power sorce and unplug the device. FOR SAFTEY Kneel on a thick doormat if you have to disconect power which has a plug. Wait for a an hour so to let all circuits, timers and motors to cool ... with diswasher in the OFF position, Re-establish POWER. then go ahead and start washer as sugessted by the Manufacturer. Make sure to notice any other codes that may appear. Or any peculiar noises. Most default codes appear if water pressure is too low. Top loaders are natorious for plugged drain lines and can be flushed by the home-ownwr. Make sure to check that water strainer is not cloged or restricted. Hotpoints CODES change from year to year, You can contact a Hotpoint Dealer in your area ... Give him the Make, Model, and any Series numbers to him. MOST will tell you what the CODES ARE FOR THAT MODEL OR EVEN E-MAIL ALL OF THEM TO YOU. Good Luck ... Be Safe Joe Rex

Fdd914 dishwasher error code A10 appears and its not in the booklet

Hi, the interpretation for error code A10 is: A10 = fill solenoid valve triac closed/open circuit - check valve/ operation - machine drains until level switch resets + 30"

Now, to try and solve the problem yourself: Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher & remove the hose, Run the machine for several minutes in a normal position. Turn the machine off, reconnect the fill hose, turn the water back on then turn the machine back on.

If this doesn't solve the problem, then you'll need to call a service person.

My Aquarius FDW70 keeps coming up with code A10

Dear sir,

If your dish washer is type EV02 Module,
Error A10: means Faulty fill valve.
Check valve and associated wiring.

If your Dishwasher is
Standard Module + FDW70 + FDW75,
E10 means Heater fault.
Check heater and associated wiring.

i think it helps for solve your problem.
if you have any doubt regarding this issue leave a feedback we will glad to assit you.

Have a nice day
good luck
