Exactly the same happened to our Hotpoint FWD70. The spring that holds the door latch in place has snapped. I removed all screws out of the door to find the spring and the metal rod it hooks onto and bend another hook into it (I didn't have a replacement spring), put it back together and the door works fine, although for some reason the dishwasher tablet doesn't release now!!

Child lock blinking on a Kitchenaid ultima diswasher.


Try holding the E.S. button down for 30 seconds. Does not work, you need an Electronic control assembly which can be ordered online from Repair clinic .com for $146 for your model plus shipping. This is apparently a common problem with Kitchenaid dishwashers. Just repaired one the other day. Tried everything, but as soon as the new Electronic control assembly was installed, everything was Okay. This is an easy repair for anyone who is handy at all. Please shut off power to the dishwasher by switching the breaker off or removing the fuse.

Hotpoint ultima super silent w f 840 shows fault 03


Code f03 means wash thermistor open circuit, this is normally part of the heating circuit, suggest you test heater and thermistos located in the end of the heater, and replace if necesscary. If heater o/k , then could be bad connection to control module, or broken wire, if still no joy, then call Hotpoint.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.
