    Exactly the same problem, fast and delicate lights flashing but not coverd in the user guide.

    Will be taking it apart this weekend to see if it is anything obvious.

    Until then it is back to the sink!

    Fast & Delicates lights flashing and dishwasher only doing pre-wash.

  • Anonymous Apr 12, 2008

    Hi I also have problems with Hotpoint's FDW60. Turn it on, put it on a normal cycle and as you hear the first water started to come through it just stops and the 'Fast' and 'Delicate' lights start flashing. I have tried taking everything out, checked all the areas where water gets pumped around for blockages but nothing can make it better.


    Does anyone have any ideas? This machine in not even two years old. It looks like this model is riddled with problems when you browse around forums. Don't think I'll be buying Hotpoint again.


    Thx in advance.

    I have exactly the same problem. It happened when the dishwasher was few months old, engineer came out and fixed it. Dishwasher is now just over a year old and same thing has gone- delicates light is flashing. I phoned and emailed hotpoint and was basically just told there was nothing they could do and we would have to pay for engineer to come out and fix it!!

Heater elements on FDW 60 do not last long at all, I am on my 3rd. You are better of buying a heating element and a decent limescale filter, otherwise it will keep happening. The flow through element builds up limescale, causing the element/thermostat to over heat.

Its a shame as they are quite a good dishwasher. Hotpoint 5 year parts warranty a waste of time. £90 call out charge.

The last one lasted 3 moths before delciates & fast light started flashing.

You can get the elements online for £40

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.

SOURCE: 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.

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.

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

My fdw60 hotpoint dishwasher seems to start then the fast light and the delicate light flash and it stops. Please help.


Have you tried cleaning out the filters in the base of the machine? Also make sure there is no bits in the filter sump. Then give it a clean using a dishwasher cleaner.

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
