Question about Hotpoint 24 in. FDW60 Free-standing Dishwasher
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.

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
