Question about Hotpoint 24 in. FDW60 Free-standing Dishwasher

1 Answer

Error light flashing - wash & drying lights flashing.

I have a Hotpoint FDW20. When it was 11 months old I got an error message. Two visits from Comet engineers repaired it - said it was to do with heating element. 6 weeks later two new lights started to flash but machine was out of warranty. I was told that if it wasn't heating element again I would have to pay full cost of repair. Engineer came out but the machine had stopped displaying lights and he couldn't find a problem. Now the machine is flashing wash & drying lights - the manual says I should call an engineer, but I know what they are going to say. I have a machine which is 16 months old and no warranty. Any clues? I feel fairly conned.

My machine would not always set properly and various lights went on and off without reason or stayed flickering. I phoned Hotpoint as like you my warranty was finished. They told me to switch off the machine and unplug at the mains. Leave for 10 minutes then plug back in and switch on. It re-booted the control panel and last night I was able to set it properly. If it doesnt work for you I suggest you phone Hotpoint customer service (number of website) and ask if there is anything else you can do to solve the problem yourself before you pay for another service call. Failing that buy a new one!!

Error message F-01 & flashing lights etc I have a Hotpoint aquarius, WMF740. Suddenly returning to the kitchen I noticed an error message - the machine was switched off - which says F-01 and flashes...


Error code F01 indicates a short circuit motor triac.
You need to check connections on the motor, the motor plug and the module.
Having said that, you really should ring the manufacture, as the washer is still obviously under guarantee, and should be fixed at no cost to you.
The point to bear in mind is that if you do anything to it yourself, then in theory, you could invalidate the guarantee.
So, unless it is anything obvious, then I would advise you ring the manufacturer.
Hope this is of assistance to you.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Here are the eco related error codes for your washer..
1)Light 3 (eco) flashes. Water is present in the flood catching tray at the bottom which usually indicates that there is a leak somewhere. More often than not this is just a pipe with a poor fitting and simply tightening the clip is enough to stop the leak. Our machine had a very slow leak from one pipe (not enough to trigger the alarm) which was fixed in this way. The leak is detected by a small float switch located in the flood catch tray.

Undo 4 screws on the metal plate under the dishwasher 3 at the front 1 at the back, this reveals The pump check the seals are in place on the waste pump.

2) Wash indicator lights 3 + 5 (eco + pre) flashing rapidly. Filter is clogged. Pull out the filter and clean it.
3)Runs for approx. 3 minutes and then stops. Lights 3 + 4 (eco and fast) flash. Probably caused by being plumbed into a hot rather than cold water supply. The incoming water is hotter than required for the wash which causes the machine to cut out. Plumbing the machine into a cold water supply will fix the problem with no apparent long term problems.
