    Hello there: Please read Often the main wiring connection from the house,
    at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the
    problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not
    the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between
    the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the
    timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using
    the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.

Almost certainly the main wash motor or the capacitor is faulty.If not look for the line filter module. If that is blown it will also do that.Rewire without it.(your mail power cord is connected to it as it enters the machine on the inside..

You would probably need a whole new motor but the nwith the smell of plastic you may also have a burn hole in the tub. Your best bet is to replace the whole thing. Sorry

No power


Make sure there's power getting to the dishwasher. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the dishwasher (inside the junction box, behind the bottom kick panel), if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

Dishwasher trips the fusebox.


You have a obvious short circuit.
Remove the lower panel and inspect the drain valve solenoid attached to the pump beside the motor.
These GE solenoids will stick and melt causing a short circuit.
If not that, open the front panel and inspect all wires for a break.

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.
