I have a Hotpoint Aquarius SDW 60 The delay 3hr &12hr lights are flashing at the same time. Machine won't start. If the door is slamed shut. It get stuck on the Fast & Prewash 40 degree cycle. and stays there.
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
hi, just found this forum after searching the web 4 a solution to my hotpoint DWF50 problem. I came down this morning to a machine which base tray was full of water and lights 3 ECO & 4 Fast flashing. Anyway my solution was as i had seen a hotpoint engineer do once before was to press the start/reset button trip the catch, to fool the machine into thinking the door is closed then put in a program, press start, the machine hums slightly but doesnt do anything then after removing the large filter from the tray at the bottom underneath the lower basket insert a length of wire, with a loop on the end (Tip i used a wire coat hanger from the dry cleaners) poke in ythe hole that the dirty water drains from, after a bit of poking about the pump started working and the water drained away. Tip place a hook at the other end of your wire impliment to put your finger in to stop the wire getting caught in the pump mechanisim. After wards u have to hook back the door catch to the normal position, Tip another piece of the coat hanger with a right angled piece at the end will do this. This worked for me, saved me some money esp as D & G insurance ran out 2 weeks ago.....stu
Here are the eco related error codes for your washer.. 1)Light 3 (eco) flashes. Water is present in the flood catching tray at
the bottom which usually indicates that there is a leak somewhere. More
often than not this is just a pipe with a poor fitting and simply
tightening the clip is enough to stop the leak. Our machine had a very
slow leak from one pipe (not enough to trigger the alarm) which was
fixed in this way. The leak is detected by a small float switch located
in the flood catch tray.
Undo 4 screws on the metal plate under the dishwasher 3 at the front 1
at the back, this reveals The pump check the seals are in place on the
Wash indicator lights 3 + 5 (eco + pre) flashing rapidly. Filter is clogged. Pull out the filter and clean it. 3)Runs for approx. 3 minutes and then stops. Lights 3 + 4 (eco and fast)
flash. Probably caused by being plumbed into a hot rather than cold
water supply. The incoming water is hotter than required for the wash
which causes the machine to cut out. Plumbing the machine into a cold
water supply will fix the problem with no apparent long term problems.
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
