Question about Hotpoint Dishwashers

1 Answer

I have a Hotpoint Aquarius FDW 60 dishwasher. Crockery was with greasy smear on it. Since then the drying does not appear to be working. Seems the drying element has malfunctioned, can we replace this with a spare part heater element? If so, how much do they cost and are they easy to fit.

My hotpoint aquarius df61 do not clean properly cannot find the problem all filters cleaned .all of the crockery comes out dirty


Just had same problem. Checked and cleaned spray arms filter and impellor. Still had problem. Noticed that it appeared to be expeling water to drain at wrong time. Openned mid cycle and noticed water level low.
Took off left side panel to reveal pipework. Main pipe route big oblong in clear plastic had a red valve at the top which was gunged. This was the air release so when water is pumped in air has nowhere to go so it pushes water out through the waste so ther is too little water in machine. Removed this component and used caustic soda to dissolve food waste blocking valve as there is no access. Put it back together and now it works fine. Took about 2 hours (1 hour for caustic to work) no special tools other than star screwdriver required as it all unclips.

Hotpoint aquarius fdw60 tripping problem


I would agree with you. Everything you say here certainly points to a faulty heating element. The original is fitted with two factory fitted clips so you may need to go to your local garage and get two jubilee clips as they don't usually come with the new element.

FDW 60 lights 4 and 5 flashin.Select programme,m/c then bleeps 4 times and then lights 4 and 5 flas together and nothing else happens!Any ideas please?


Control panel which is a bit sensitive might need re-booting. Mine did the same and had a mind of its own, doing what it wanted, lights flashing all over the place, not completing the wash etc etc.
Switch off the machine and unplug from the mains. Leave for 10 minutes.
Plug back in, switch the machine on to your required programme and if ,like me, you are lucky, your machine should work again. If it happens again in the future you know what to do. Failing that go to the Hotpoint website, find the customer service number and ask if there is anything else you can do yourself to solve the problem, before paying for a service call. They are really helpful

Ensure that your filters are not blocked - these are inside the unit. remove the grey plastic filter and see if there any food or other items jammed in it.

Make sure there is nothing underneath the filter - if there is items of food (e.g seeds) may already be restricting the exit pump path.

Hotpoint aquarius dwf30 dishwasher


you can plumb into hot but there are some snags
first hot water pressure is often a lot lower than cold so the machine may take a long time to fill
second if the water is too hot it will destroy the resin of the water softener and you will see brown marks on the crockery.
third it a bit uneconomical as you will use a lot of hot water
