You have a obvious short circuit.
Remove the lower panel and inspect the drain valve solenoid attached to the pump beside the motor.
These GE solenoids will stick and melt causing a short circuit.
If not that, open the front panel and inspect all wires for a break.

Hello I have a hotpoint aquarious dishwasher and its making a burning smell and tripping the fuse box do you know what this could be?


Almost certainly the main wash motor or the capacitor is faulty.If not look for the line filter module. If that is blown it will also do that.Rewire without it.(your mail power cord is connected to it as it enters the machine on the inside..

My wd640 trips after a second of pressing start,


I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old
man who has been making his own repairs for about
50 years. Therefore the dryer ID doesn't mean very
much to me. Over the years, I haven't had much
trouble with my dryers. However I can refer you to
www.applianceaid.com where they have very good
trouble shooting and repair information on dryers and
other appliances. I think you'll find what you need
there. If you have an error code you can probably
find the meaning of it there. Good luck with it.
If I have helped you, please rate my advice on fixya.

Hotpoint DWF33 doesn't start


yes... check the wiring to the unit... get underneath your unit and make sure that a wire is not "grounding out" by making contact with a metal part down there on a section of unjacketed wire... this would definately trip your breaker and can blow wires apart with a pop.

there may be enough contact to get the initial display you describe... make sure all the wires are insulated properly and wire nutted together securely before resetting your breaker and checking the unit again.

Hotpoint aquarius fdw60 tripping problem


I would agree with you. Everything you say here certainly points to a faulty heating element. The original is fitted with two factory fitted clips so you may need to go to your local garage and get two jubilee clips as they don't usually come with the new element.

Hotpoint aquarious wd 440 two years old tripping main board


A faulty heater in both a washing machine and dishwasher will trip swithes because they both cause an earth........the chances are you heater needs replacing......the reason its tripping after a short period is probably beacause the cycle doesnt start heating the water until after approx 15-20 mins depending on the cycle chosen

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.
