The usual process with these dishwashers is to remove the top side screws from the inside of the door plus the one in the middle (if it is there). Slightly push the door front cover out and pull the control panel along with the wires.

Work on the control panel to check if on/ off switch is broken. Replace or fix as required. Put back in reverse order.

Make sure power is disconnected when you are working with the dishwasher.

Help my Hotpoint FDW70 iS FLASHING a99...............Many thanks Sarah.


A99 is a communication error. Try unplugging your dishwasher for 10 minutes and then try it again. If you still get an A 99 code that suggests a problem in the control board in the dishwasher. In this instance I recommend an engineer as it can be extremely difficult to fault find this error.

Hope this helps.

Hi, The dial doesn't turn anymore and you have to push it in hard and try and work out what setting it is on. Also the start/hold to reset button has to be pushed several times to get it to start and has...


You have probably dislodged the plastic moulding in the control module that hold the buttons in place, you will have to remove top cover, soap dispenser draw, and front panel to gain access to the control module.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

How do i find the float switch for a Hotpoing Aquarius FDW70


Open the DW. Look in the front right or left corner of the tub.
You will see a plastic dome.
The float switch is directly underneath the dome.
Remove the toe kick plate and located the float switch from the bottom.
Sometimes they get stuck.
Jiggle it then try the wash cycle.
If that does not work, replace the float switch.

    I have a Hotpoint FDW70 dishwasher


    Disconect POWER at breaker or fuse panel which should be on a seperate braker. if not find the power sorce and unplug the device. FOR SAFTEY Kneel on a thick doormat if you have to disconect power which has a plug. Wait for a an hour so to let all circuits, timers and motors to cool ... with diswasher in the OFF position, Re-establish POWER. then go ahead and start washer as sugessted by the Manufacturer. Make sure to notice any other codes that may appear. Or any peculiar noises. Most default codes appear if water pressure is too low. Top loaders are natorious for plugged drain lines and can be flushed by the home-ownwr. Make sure to check that water strainer is not cloged or restricted. Hotpoints CODES change from year to year, You can contact a Hotpoint Dealer in your area ... Give him the Make, Model, and any Series numbers to him. MOST will tell you what the CODES ARE FOR THAT MODEL OR EVEN E-MAIL ALL OF THEM TO YOU. Good Luck ... Be Safe Joe Rex
