Question about Dishwashers
How do you go about replacing seal around door and at the bottom
SOURCE: hotpoint aquarius fdw60
My Hotpoint FDW60 dishwasher - I select new programme (normal 55 degree wash) and it defaults to 45 degree wash green light flashing and just making a whirring sound but nothing else happens. I have tried pressing the restart button, holding it in until I get the continuous sound and then restarting the programme but the same thing happens

Check the screws on the pump cover under the lower spray arm (the spray arm is easy to remove, the screws are torx - maybe a torx 10 or 15, so a regular screwdriver wont work). They come loose on ours every 6-12 months and spray water at the door, causing it to leak all over our wood floor. I routinely tighten those screws now before they come loose enough to cause the 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

Since you wrote your question 13 months ago, I'm guessing the problem is solved. Still, for others experiencing the same issue, here's my answer.
We also experienced leaking on our Miele 858 Incognito dishwasher and were able to replace the bottom door seal (today) without removing the door.
First, call the Miele Parts Dept @ 800-999-1360 to place an order for the door seal, which is part #3920725.
Remove the defective seal by loosening the four screws at the bottom of the door. Pull the black rubber seal out and discard. Install the new part in the same spot (underneath the green flange). Tighten the screws and you'll be in business.
