SDW60 - AL08 Error - No Hot Water

The delicate LED flashes fast at the end of the cycle. I am guessing it is at the end of the wash cycle, because the dishwasher doesn't look like it has gone through the rinse/dry cycles. The dishwasher is cold when opened, so the water isn't heating up. Has anyone got any ideas why this is happening?

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 sdw60 dishwasher the delicate light keeps flashing


First try unplugging cable from power outlet for 15/20 minutes, to reset the appliance, so to ensure that is not the control board gone funny for a while. If this does not work it is likely that you need to replace control board.

Hello Dave,

Welcome to FixYa.

Try this test I posted below and let me know what error you find...if any.

To begin the test program, press both the SCRUB WASH and DELICATE/ECONO wash program buttons at the same time

as you turn the unit on by pressing the ON/OFF button. Initially, the control unit version number will appear in the display

(e.g./ 20 = version 20, 21 = version 21, etc.).


When the wash program buttons are released, the LED's above them will begin flashing. To end the test program or test cycle, press the ON/OFF button.


To check the wash program LED, press its corresponding button.


To check the Cycle Countdown display, Refill Rinse Agent LED and REGULAR WASH button LED, press the REGULAR WASH button (press the DELAY START button to test the

Cycle Countdown display alone).


The Cycle Countdown display should show "88" when the DELAY START button is pressed and "8h" when the REGULAR WASH button is pressed.


To start the test cycle, press both the SCRUB WASH and DELICATE/ECONO buttons a second time.


When the test cycle has completed, the Cycle Countdown display will indicate a fault using the codes below. If a combination of faults exists, the code numbers will be added together, (e.g./ 6 = faults 2 + 4).


0 = No faults

1 = Aqua Sensor ("Sensotronic") fault

2 = Heating fault

4 = Filling fault
8 = NTC (temperature sensor) fault

email me at macmarkus@live.ca and I can send you via a "pdf" of the diagnostic/repair manual for your specific Bosch...provided it is indeed a SHU5316 unit.

I`ll watch for your reply. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

BAD CONTROL BOARD TO TEST TO SEE IF THIS IS THE ISSUE RUN TEST PROGRAM
To start test program, press and hold both SCRUB WASH and DELICATE/ECONO program buttons, then turn unit on by
pressing ON/OFF button. Initially, control module version # will be displayed (e.g./ “20” = version 0 without jumper). When
wash program buttons are released, lights above them will flash. To end test program, press ON/OFF button.
To check each program indicator light, press its button. To check Cycle Countdown display, Refill Rinse Agent light and
REGULAR WASH light, press REGULAR WASH button (press Delay Start button to test Cycle Countdown display
alone). Cycle Countdown display will show "88" when REGULAR WASH button is pressed and "8h" when Delay Start
button is pressed.
To start testing, press both SCRUB WASH and DELICATE/ECONO buttons a second time. When testing has ended,
Cycle Countdown display will show a fault using codes below. If more than one fault occurs, code numbers will be added
together, (e.g./ “6” = faults 2 + 4).
0 = No faults detected 2 = Heating fault 8 = NTC (temperature sensor) fault
1 = Aqua Sensor ("Sensotronic") fault 4 = Filling fault F = Filling fault (display occurs during wash, not test)
To check for heater, high limit or flow switch problems, start testing until heating starts. Using a meter with a current coil,
measure current going into dishwasher. If current is ~ 11 A, then heater, high limit and flow switch are OK. If current stays
at ~ 1.5-2 A, then heater, high limit or flow switch are faulty.
If water level switch (f1) has failed (opened), display will show fault code "4" and unit will continually fill and drain where
testing won't be completed. If flow switch (e5) has failed (opened), display will show "0", water won't heat (to 150ºF) and
water won’t stop circulating. If NTC probe (f2/f4) has failed (opened), display will show fault code "8" immediately and
testing will end shortly after water has started circulating
