Check the inside diameter of the drain hose with a ruler.

Go to your hardware shop and tell them that you want two plastic inline connectors and 4 Jubilee clips for an inside diameter hose of ???

Get a one foot piece of clear plastic tubing from the same place.

Cut the hose in the middle insert one of the connectors and tighten it on with a clip put the plastic tubing on and tighten that

Put a clip on the plastic hose and fit the next connector tighten that up, now fit the original hose end and tighten the clip , job done

Water not draning

If kitchen side drains are clear then there might be some blockage in the pump system. Check the drain pump is working during drain cycle. If you can hear the pump but the water does not go away then you need to check filters at base of dishwasher. Beyond that you will have to open the pump assembly to look for debris.

see these instructions which might be helpful.

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.
