Question about Dishwashers
Our "delicates" LED flashes at the end of the porogram. seems to be washing OK but not drying - possibly no heating.
Is this easy to fix? Heater element?

Read the post by makka on Jun 15 2007 with solution by Jeremiah on Jul 1 2007.
Apparently Jeremiah has had an email from hotpoint to state that this light sequence means a heater failure.
Hope that helps.

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.

Very sorry ,Control board is bad ,listen even if you replace that you are going to have modify the whole d/w to make it right.Contact manufacturer and see how far this problem will go.

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.

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!!
