Switch the machine off and unplug at the mains. Leave for ten minutes, then plug in and switch on. My dishwasher control panel had a mind of its own and did what it wanted including leaving water in the bottom of the machine. The electrics sometimes need re-booting! Hotpoint suggested the solution and it worked for me. Saved me £99 call out charge. Good luck.

Hotpoint Aquarius FDW60 Machine stops halfway through its cycle & the "fast" & "delicate" cycle LED's are flashing - what is my problem?


This sounds like the heater is not energising usually means the heater has failedalthough a blocked or sticking pressure switch will cause the same problem

AQUARIUS FDW60. THA FAST AND DELICATE LIGHTS KEEP FLASHING.


I had the same problem with my Hotpoint FDW60 and read all the online reviews about how baddly made the FDW60 is and after taking it apart I totally agree.

As the warning lights were indicating a faulty heating element I checked it to find that it was not working. I bought a replacement for £43 at my local electrical store (I think they then ordered it online). Taking the bottom off is easy but once off, it is very difficult to actually get to the element, but it can be done. I had to buy new hose clips to fasten the rubber pipe each side too. It has been on twice today and so far so good.

I have read some message boards and have seen that some people have had to replace the element a number of times, so I will wait and see what happens.

Be aware the heating element is not your usual heating element, it looks more like a insulated metal tube: http://www.buyspares.co.uk/cgi-bin/search.pl?query=heating+element+fdw60

Good luck

Dwf50 Two flashing lights are :- fast40% and delicate 50%


Take out and clean your lower and upper spray arms.
The bottom one had bits of chipped crockery in it.The upper one a bit of platic bag(?????) and some of the door seal rubber.
Mine works fine now.
No screw driver, no mop nor an expensive call out!!

HOTPOINT DISHWASHER FDW60


Hi,

I have just had my dishwasher fixed by Hotpoint, as the heater was working and the dishwasher only stopped with the fast and delicate lights just before the drying process he replaced the main control board. This has solved the problem, I suspected the fault to be the thermistor as the heater seemed to be getting to hot but I had no idea where it was.

It turns out the thermistor is attached to the main control board and hangs down behind the front door that gives just a rough temperature level for the main control board.

As it's soldered directly onto the control board I would suggest replacing the whole control pcb for anyone with this fault unless you can find any spec details for the thermistor.

FDW60 Fast and Delicate Lights Flash


This is a bad control board that if replaced will only repeat in a short time .My advice is to contact the manufacturer and complain,you have the right as a consumer to do so.

I think you will find that the heater has packed up.same thing has happened to my 14month old machine.
Waiting for the part to arrive approx £40 looks quite straight forward if you are a bit handy with tools
