You need the control panel to reset before anything else can happen. To do this TURN OFF THE PLUG SOCKET FIRST AND UNPLUG. Then you need to drain ALL the water from the machine. Turn off the water supply feed and place the wastage pipe as low to the floor as poss ( 1-2" off floor). Water will gush out so use a large shallow tray and keep emptying the tray. Tilt the dishwasher over slightly to make sure all the water is out.
This will allow the control panel to reset itself which wouldn't normally happen if the base of the dishwasher was holding even a small amount of water.
Re connect the water, plug back in , select the RESET setting on the dial and close the door and switch on.
Leave for about 20 seconds and then turn off.
Rotate the selector switch to "A" Intensive wash and switch
I found this on another site and it really did work for me

I have a Hotpoint SDW 60 problem! The dishwasher starts and goes through pre-wash but stops with just the 'Delicate' light flashing. Does anyone know what the problem may be?


If the original light flashing that means it indicate a fault in the heating circuit. Heater, wiring, thermistor / pcb. (Main control board).

The new flashing light, PreWash (this is the only one on my list for a fault code indication). indicates a fault with the thermistor.

You would need to check by taking the door apart that the thermistor hasn't come off it's mount by the dispenser.

You would then need access to and be able to use a multimeter to test the heater and wiring to ensure they are closed circuit.

Dishwasher error codes please help


I too had this problen today. Printed off a manual from the Hotpoint website. Very helpful troubleshoot section. Anyway, flashing eco and fast lights and beeping sound indicates 'water feed pipe blocked' You need to check the water inlet connections on your tap.However, when we pulled it out we noticed the blue water inlet pipe was slightly kinked. Straightened this out and hey presto! It works fine again. How this happens when its worked ok for 18 months will never know but still. Try it! hope this was helpful...shewoo
