Question about Hotpoint 24 in. FDW60 Free-standing Dishwasher

1 Answer

Sdw60 flashes lights 5 & 7 and cycle stops

My hotpoint sdw60 dishwasher stopped in mid cycle and flashed the ''fast and dry'' and ''delicates'' lights. These are the 5th and 7th lights in from the left respectively. I have tried power cycling, unplugging and leaving but the program now always stops a few minutes in, flashes the lights and drains.

Can't select the right model dishwasher from the list below. It's the slimline version of the one selected.

Hi, this sounds like a spontaneous failure, something has "Faulted" during the running of the machine, when it was under load, this usually indicate a controller, or motor, or perhaps it is simply blocked? It could be the overflow valve stuck, or a pressure lock. or you may have suffered a power spike? So, because quite a few things can give the same symptoms, you need to troubleshoot your issue using the service manual above. This will help you zero in on your problem. Below is a dedicated Dishwasher, DIY self help troubleshooting site. It has easy to follow instructions to help.

Also often inside under the inspection panel there is technical manual, this too is indispensable, to have.

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

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.

FDW60 Fast and Delicate Lights Flash


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.
