When the eco light comes on , that means that an incorrect water level had been detected.

This may be occasional event, or caused by a fault, like probably in your case.

Try first resetting and troubleshooting the machine.

Trip circuit breaker.
Pull out the appliance.
Check drain hose at the back.
Completely empty water from inside.
Check the drain well and filter carefully and clean the filter.
Put back the machine and run a short cycle.

If you still get the problem, then it is usually the pressure switch located into the drain system or the floater switch located inside the tub. Both devices must be tested.

If both pressure switch and floater switch are OK, and inlet valve is not stuck, then there is usually a faulty control board.
Most commonly the problem is caused by a defective pressure switch or water level.

Try the reset above.

If you want to get a quote, or arrange a repair, call Hotpoint at the number listed on the owners manual.

Please do not forget to leave feedback.

Many thanks.

if the eco light is flashing, this indicates that saftey float switch has activated in the base of the dishwasher usually caused by a leak, a polystyrene float activates a microswitch which cuts of the water inlet supply

Is it possible that water has gotten inside the controls that could have caused the flashing lights? Kind of like spilling water on a calculator, everything seems to go haywire.

Hotpoint fdw60 eco error code


I had this problem too, but discovered the cause and the remedy.

The flashing eco light signifies that the drain sump has water in it. Before the machine takes on water it checks a float located in the sump. If the float says that there is water in the sump then the machine presumes that there has been a problem when draining and decides not to take on any more water.

In my particular case, the sump collected extra water after the machine has last drained itself because the bottom spray arm has come off and allowed some water to enter the machine. Make sure that you check that!

The simple solution is to empty the sump of water. Do this by tipping the machine onto its right side. Warning! You will get wet feet! There was about a 1/4 pint of water in my dishwasher.

After that you should find that your dishwasher works perfectly again! Why Hotpoint couldn't include this simple task in their manual I'll never know! Health & Safety I guess...

HTH!

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
