Hotpoint aquarius fdw60 tripping problem

Hotpoint aquarius fdw 60 problem. problem is that it is tripping both the socket mcb and rcd at the main board but not the 13A fuse in the plug. when turned on initially it works fine for a few mins then it trips out and if i leave it on when i reset it at the board it sparks at the mcb which as an electrician indicates to me a fault with the dishwasher. iv a feeling its the heater element. also one time i notices the prewash indicator light flashing for about 20 seconds and then move to the next cycle. the machine is approx 3 years old and never gave any hassle untill now. one thing that is constant is the tripping after about 3-5 mins.

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.

My aquairius hotpoint washer dryer wd62 keeps tripping electric why


Remove top cover, and unplug motor, try it, and if it does not trip, then motor is causing prob.
If it still trips, then heater is probably causing problem.
Please rate my advice.
Thanks.

FDW 60 lights 4 and 5 flashin.Select programme,m/c then bleeps 4 times and then lights 4 and 5 flas together and nothing else happens!Any ideas please?


Control panel which is a bit sensitive might need re-booting. Mine did the same and had a mind of its own, doing what it wanted, lights flashing all over the place, not completing the wash etc etc.
Switch off the machine and unplug from the mains. Leave for 10 minutes.
Plug back in, switch the machine on to your required programme and if ,like me, you are lucky, your machine should work again. If it happens again in the future you know what to do. Failing that go to the Hotpoint website, find the customer service number and ask if there is anything else you can do yourself to solve the problem, before paying for a service call. They are really helpful

You just need to switch the machine off for approx 30 seconds from the mains and switch it back on again!!

AL99 means that there is a communication error within the machines software.

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.
