Question about Hotpoint 24 in. FDW60 Free-standing Dishwasher

Open Question

Hi, we have an aquarius hotpoint df61 and it goes through the cycle but does not drain out the last few inches of water and the wash is not as good as it should be, have unscrewed the plastic bit under the filter thing to see if there is a blockage there but nothing, have now taken off the top and side panel to try and get to the pump, currently on it's back but hard to access underneath and not sure how to remove the solid bottom of the dishwasher..please help!

SOURCE: 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

No problem - just tip it in and it will displace the water.

SOURCE: my hotpoint aquarius df61 do not clean properly

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.

SOURCE: hotpoint aquarius dishwasher tablet dispenser not working

Clean it by running a cycle with hot water and 2 cups white vinegar, I suspect you have mineral deposits built up and causing it to stick closed and this causes the problem

Door will not open have wash cycle


Switch off, put in spin/drain cycle and switch back on; check water is fully drained and then check filter. If not all drained, lower hose to ground level and drain to a bowl.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
If you have cleaned the drain filter AND checked the operation of the drain motor, for Hotpoint (and the manufacturer Indesit) E5 states ' pressure switch jammed on full or pump blocked- check switch and module'. Sometimes there can be bad connections between plugs/cables/module (PCB). If you haven't done already please make sure that the pump does actually work by removing the filter, seeing the pump motor and putting the machine on spin. You should see it rotate! Otherwise it looks like a service call ;-0(
Good luck,
John C
